I wonder how she describes herself primarily. If you start out as an entertainer, you'd think that's because this is your primary aspiration.

I totally understand your analogy and getting bogged down into meetings and such.

I can't imagine she's very hands-on, on a day-to-day basis, in terms of managing her business, and she still focuses more on her singing career. Because she's the only one who can do that - whereas she can delegate the running of her business to anyone.

Well, I can't argue with that. Smile | :)
