You need others, and others need you. I have had many people people me in the past help me with opportunity, and of course, you think of ways you can pay them back. Unfortunately, sometimes there's not really a whole lot you can do to pay them back, it forward! Help someone else, and I'm sure there will be somebody else out there who will take care of them. I think it's great to support not only fellow artists, but everyone who deserves it. However, there is a limit. You can't help someone who does not want to help themselves, so at some point, if your lending a hand and they chose not to take it, move on with someone who will.
I have some friends who I believe are very talented, and are driven enough- they've got what it takes!- and I always keep in mind things that might come up that they would be great for. Not because you want something in return, but maybe your friend is a cook, and he meets Steven Speilberg at some event, and you did him a favor a few months back introducing him to Wolfgang Puck, he will probably think of you while getting that contact. Those are A list artists, I realize, but the same goes for anyone at any level.
We are in a business that is so universal. Let's take it into a positive direction.
