Glory

You can try telling yourself that there's glory in negotiating for your client to finally get that big break they've been working so hard for, and at different times you'll be playing their agent, manager, accountant, social worker, therapist, life coach, and occasionally bail bondsman. However, there's no real glory in that stuff—glory only comes if all of that effort ends in the talent booking a well-paying gig (or seven).

So in truth the biggest glory you get are the dollars the talent scores you. The only other way your job has anything to do with glory is if one of your clients appeared in the movie Glory, and in that case Denzel is probably all the representation you need.
