Luckily for all the hopeful creators out there, J’net still, on occasion, agrees to agent new, upcoming artists. She is always looking for that next great, marketable creative genius or property. When J’net decides to agent a client, she often takes on key categories and at a very reasonable commission rate. She is also and is known for recommending other agents, if she doesn’t happen to be the best fit for you.
