Business Affairs Management, Inc. (BAM) is a full-service management company founded in 1989 by W. Steven Temple. BAM was designed specifically to provide financial management services to individuals and businesses with a strong emphasis on addressing the unique needs of the entertainment and sports industries. BAM's intention and goals are to assist each client in maximizing his or her financial potential and economic security, and to eliminate the daily burdens of accounting such as: payment of client bills; tracking of income; preparation of tax returns; analysis of real estate valuation issues; and providing financial advisory services. BAM recognizes that the more time each client has to apply to developing and perfecting his or her individual talents, the more successful that person can become.
BAM recognizes that as a professional in the creative, athletic or performing arts fields, you have unique financial needs. We know that, often, for individuals in the creative or performing arts, “Economic Security” can evaporate rapidly if the proper planning steps are not taken. Unlike the majority of business or professional people whose careers advance steadily over many years until retirement, those in the fields of entertainment, music, literature, design, and sports frequently experience dramatic surges of income during briefer active careers.
Thus the professional athlete, actor, actress, recording artist, writer, producer, director, and designer are faced with the difficult tasks of controlling current financial affairs and planning for a secure future—during times of peak career commitment —in an increasingly complex economic environment. Dynamic businesses and professionals who earn large incomes are frequently faced with similar problems, despite their ability to enjoy longer career spans.
Our company concentrates heavily on managing the multitude of business details associated with your successful career such as:
We know that, because most creative people need to devote themselves to career activities, it is important that they have professional business managers for guidance in establishing and maintaining financial independence.
