If you want a career in the arts, you need to have a Plan A. It’s not about having one goal with a straight arrow to it. It’s about creating an ultimate career goal and a plan to get there so that you know how to articulate it to others so they can see how to use your talent & how to help you. Knowing your skills, resources and assets and being able to express clearly what you want from life will get you jobs. As a Film & TV music executive at a major record company, I had the pleasure of running our west coast internship program. Through mentoring our valuable interns, I thrived by helping people achieve their goals and break into their career path. I was then a part time opera singer, and decided to use the lessons I was teaching them to apply to my own true career path. Through tangible action steps, guided by a Plan A, I got to my goal of singing full time. Yet, I still had many people contacting me for mentorship to break into the entertainment industry, whether it be in music licensing, singing, acting, or taking the next step in their careers, developing management & leadership skills, work efficiency and marketing strategies. It was then that I started taking on these people as clients. It is joyful work for me to help others get where they are meant to go. I've worked with countless people as a singer and in the music industry and am so inspired by the unique paths available to us all. A common thread is that we need mentorship. I didn't realize how important it was until years into my career when, for the first time, I became a mentor. In my one-on-one consultations, I work with people on their specific needs. A few examples of frequent client needs are: • Create your Plan A -Assess your ultimate career goal -Identify the assets, resources and skills you currently have -Plan to acquire the assets, resources and skills you need -Create action steps & timelines to move your Plan A forward • Resume and cover letter revisions & interview skills • Management & Leadership styles • Educational guidance as to the best courses to take for your specific goals • Social media development • Website development • Demo & Press Kit development

Nancy Fox

Negotiation Fox
9401

Nancy James Fox’s knowledge of negotiating and consensus building is founded upon extensive training and study of the most noted authorities on the subject. However, it is the application of these practices throughout her career that has given her unique insights to the field. Ms. Fox has held top-level management positions with both for-profit and not-for-profit organizations. From 1982 – 2000 she was U.S. Managing Director for the Swiss luxury watch company, Jaeger-LeCoultre, building that company from a virtual unknown to one of the most prestigious brands in the industry. As CEO of the Museum of Latin American Art from 2000-2007, she led a capital campaign and expansion project that doubled the size of the facility and catapulted the organization to international recognition. She has also served as Executive Director for the Long Beach Symphony. Over the course of her career, her negotiation skills have returned literally millions of dollars to her employers. Her passion for the subject led to the founding of her negotiation workshop business, Negotiation Fox, in 2010 and Negotiation-4-the-Arts in 2011. She has conducted workshops at numerous venues and conferences and has been a guest on popular radio shows. Ms. Fox earned her B.A. from Macalester College and an advanced degree from the Conservatory of Music in Frankfurt, Germany. She continued her education at Shenandoah University, where she studied business law, finance and marketing. In 2005, she received a fellowship to the Stanford Graduate School of Business, where she earned the Executive Leadership in Non-Profit Arts Certificate. Ms. Fox served on the California Association of Museums’ Board for ten years.
