Elvis Presley made millions of dollars in his lifetime. It's estimated that his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, made over $100 million off of him. Elvis Presley signed a contract that Colonel Tom Parker was to receive 50% of all monies he earned. Records, movies, concerts and whatever else the colonel could sell. Was this a good deal for Elvis?
I'm not a movie critique, but it's safe to say, not very good movies. There's not much to brag about when it comes to his song selections either. If you asked me, Elvis made a great deal when he signed that contract with Parker. Elvis Presley became a superstar because of the colonel and the colonel made a lot of money because of Elvis. They both needed each other. They were both very good at what they did.
This is where I come into the equation. If your on the first page of the rankings, my name is colonel tucker parker. If you can pick winners, I can make you millions. O.K. , I can make you hundreds. Just kidding. I'm the worst sales person on the planet. What I'm not kidding about, where are the Colonel Parker's of the "selling sport picks" business. Would you give 50% of your money to a good manager? Would you give 50% to someone when your the one picking the winners? Will the next Colonel Tom Parker please stand up.
