Many times an artist, band, or speaker is not sure if he/she needs a manager or just a plan. We have found that most of the ministries who contact us need someone to map out a career plan for them and provide them with the specific steps they need to take to become successful in ministry.
Our TMA Personal Coaching & Music Management Consultation gives us the opportunity to do this and much more! With over 30 years’ experience in both ministry and business, TMA can help you develop a more mature understanding of your career path and how that is manifest through your ministry.
I have held hundreds of consultations all over the world in the past 10+ years and everyone felt it was well-worth their time and investment. Our TMA Personal Coaching & Consultation is like a private industry-insider mini-conference.
Rather than taking your entire team to a tense, two-hour meeting with a record company A&R rep, or attending an impersonal conference or training event (with expenses including conference registrations, travel, etc.), the industry-insider comes to you. And you get the personal attention of the presenter rather than sitting in a room with hundreds of others, or in front of an A&R rep tapping his foot waiting for you to leave. The consultation is designed to help artists, bands and speakers develop their calling into a legitimate, financially-secure career path.
During the consultation TMA will spend 10-12 hours of personal, one-on-one consultation time with you in your city, developing a personalized management and development plan designed to specifically meet your career goals. We cover over seven major areas important for a successful career as a touring or itinerant ministry, from developing a vision and mission statement, to recording a CD/DVD, artist branding, bookings, marketing & promotions, fund-raising, etc.
“I think that a consultation with Gary Stripling will help you carefully think through your career objectives, assess your true desires, strengths and weaknesses. If you’re not sure how you plan to get from where you are to where you want to be, a consultation will help you identify those steps.” — Lynn DeShazo (Integrity Music), songwriter and composer (“More Precious Than Silver” and many other popular worship songs).
“Gary is an innovative and creative manager with progressive ideas. I recommend his forward thinking company for anyone looking for artist management.” — Kathy Douglas, CEO, Indie Extreme.
At the end of the consultation, we will have mapped out a strategic plan that will provide you with specific goals, target dates for achievement, and benchmarks against which to gauge your success. If you are serious about your future as a touring musician, scheduling a consultation is the first step to take. By the way, we have a 100% satisfaction rating on all of the consultations we have conducted world-wide!
TMA only accepts a limited number of clients for management and development. This is so we can devote the necessary time to each client. If you need management and/or development and are serious about your career and ministry, this is the first step you need to take in your journey to a successful touring ministry.
With limited dates available, if you are considering confirming a date please remember that it is “first-come, first-served” when it comes to confirming specific dates.
“Gary spent a good deal of our consultancy time together asking important questions and listening. I was so pleased to find that Gary genuinely wanted to ‘get’ me first and then customize his services to exactly my needs. He did not have a one-size-fits-all approach at all! He took the time and had the skills and insight to ‘understand me and what I believe I’m called to do before supplying excellent advise for the path ahead. Not only have I found solid professional insight in Gary, I have found a potential ministry partner.” — Grant Norsworthy, Dove Award winner, Grammy nominee, bassist for Paul Colman Trio and SonicFlood, Nashville.
