How George Soros Returned to the Political Landscape

George Soros is one of the most impressive investors that the United States has ever seen and he is completely a self made businessman. Soros was born and raised in Hungary before he was forced to flee his home country during the Nazi occupation. Soros would move to London where he would work his way through school, studying at the London School of Economics while moonlighting as a porter and a waiter. After earning his degree Soros would set sail to America where he would eventually start the Soros Hedge Fund and become one of the most prolific businessmen that the United States has ever seen. Due to his progressive nature and his willingness to back progressive causes, he has become one of the greatest opponents to the modern day right wing — and that hit a fever pitch during the 2016 presidential election.

The presidential election of 2016 in the United States is going to be scrutinized for generations to come. The rise of Donald Trump and his dangerous brand of vitriolic populism is something that the country won’t ever forget and will hopefully choose to learn from. Still, Trump’s rise and legacy will have to include his inspiration to get George Soros back into the political fray. Soros has never been afraid to invest in politics, especially when he fiercely believes in the cause, but he mostly wants to keep money away from the political machine. Still, as Soros’ adviser Michael Vachon would say, the stakes were simply too high. Donald Trump was more than a political threat, he was an existential threat and Soros had to respond in kind.

So, George Soros leaped back into the fray in order to start backing some of the bigger progressive causes in the political game. Soros would end up giving $25 million to pro-progressive PACs up and down the ticket. He would support End Citizens United, a special PAC focused on campaign finance reform, as well as a slew of other PACs including: immigrant voter rights, opposition research for the DNC, the DNC itself, and Pro-Clinton PACs. Soros has never been afraid to put money down when he believes in a cause and the $25 million he set into place probably wouldn’t even be noticed from his bank account.

Most people are probably aware of George Soros for his 2004 run as a backer alongside then Presidential nominee Al Gore. At the time Soros was one of the biggest political donors in the country, giving a record breaking $30 million to help Gore try and get elected. Now Soros seems more content to watch from the sidelines, pushing his weight and power toward concepts that he believes strongly in — such as preventing Donald Trump from installing his populist agenda.

Brown Modeling Agency Continues To Grow Under Founder Justin Brown’s Expertise

Justin Brown is not your run of the mill talent agent. His own experience began in front of the cameras, not behind them. After being discovered he worked with brands like “Lucky Jeans”, doing what he “fit modeling. This is a form of modeling based around the unique fit of clothes made to form to the model’s body.

While he made a name for himself in this capacity, it was what happened on the management side that really excited him. After leaving business school he decided to venture out on his own, founding the Brown Agency.

Based in Texas, Brown manages more than 450 models, actors and entertainers. Every week they hunt for new talent at their open calls, held Thursdays from 3 PM to 4 PM at their Austin Texas office (100 Congress Avenue, Suite 100). During those calls would-be models and other talent can show off their resumes and photos, getting the head start they need in the cutthroat business from which Brown came.

Unlike many agencies you don’t have to be experienced to be signed. New talent is more than welcome to attend the open calls, or set up an appointment to be seen by the Brown management team. If signed head shots can be arranged, done by professional photographers hired by the agency. They have led many new models through the process of getting started.

There are no pie-in-the-sky promises made by Brown or any of his team. The agency deals in realistic expectations: they provide a service. The model pays a fee for their help, but the experience and connections held by Brown Modeling make it well worth the cost.

The alternative is contracts signed with agencies that make big claims but rarely deliver. There is no investment and often new models or actors will go in with bright dreams, only to leave crushed by the reality of the competitive nature of the business. Since many of the states that these firms exist in have no workforce regulations it can be a dangerous place for newcomers who don’t know the ropes.

Austin provides an interesting balance between big city service and small city transparency. The state of Texas has strict rules about how such agencies must operate, and Brown Modeling follows them to the letter. This provides a certain level of security for that new blood entering into the spotlight for the first time.
