Beyonce’, Tyra Banks, and even Halle Berry have all had very successful careers in the entertainment industry and they have all had parents as their business managers.

Sometimes parents with all the right intentions should just get out of the way and let the industry professionals guide their beloved child down the right path.
I have witness models with all the potential in the world get pushed to the side or completely overlooked because they had parents that agents just did not want to deal with.
