Not sure how one makes a career of that.
You've got to be kidding me. If someone's specialty is bring thousands of dollars worth of business into your night club every night, they have the potential to make a ton of money.

Most party promoters only make a modest amount, but if you're contracted by an extremely popular or high-end establishment to bring celebrities, athletes or public figures in order to draw enormous crowds that will in turn provide a **** ton of revenue, you're looking at being able to ask a premium price for your services. Not only that, but being a party promoter gives him a ridiculous amount of flexibility in his work, making it easier for him to travel and play paintball.

They're similar to the people that are hired by charities or non-profit organizations that are struggling to find contributors. If you're only asking $10,000 for your services and you can orchestrate an event that raises over $100,000+ for the charity, you're considered to be a bargain :tup:
