Normal Bechtel is a manager, business mogul, and industry leader when it comes to the world of music. Also known as “iAmMoneyMoves,” Betchel began his career as a photographer and built his network to break into the music industry. We sat down with the entrepreneur to hear more about his story.
- Hypefresh (HF): You’ve been a photographer, a manager, and a business-man. Is there anything you can’t do? What made you interested in the music industry?
iAmMoneyMoves:” When I was younger, I used to love music. I started designing and creating apparel for concerts. Then I transitioned into photography and started to shoot for local artists during their performances. I began photography and collaborated with well-known artists like Cardi B, Moneybagg Yo, J Stone, All Money In, Yo Gotti, DaBaby, Marshmellow, A Boogie wit da Hoodie, Megan Thee Stallion, Dave East, Meek Mill, Mariahlynn, Jhonni Blaze, and others.
- Hypefresh (HF): What would be your ideal artist to work with?
iAmMoneyMoves: “I am excited by an artist who puts in the effort. I like it when they take the time to perfect their craft. Their writing and material are together and when they’ve developed their own unique fan base. I love an artist that has a social media presence and they stay active with their supporters.”
- Who are some of your current clients?
iAmMoneyMoves:“I am currently working with multiple artists under my management company including; Only1BamaBoy, Kam 4Ten, Flawless Breezyy and also 4Ten Studios.
- What’s the most common misunderstanding of being a manager?
iAmMoneyMoves: Being a manager is very demanding. As a manager, there is a lot of behind the scenes work. A music manager is a thankless job at times with long hours and late nights. We are hired to make the right decisions for our clients. We handle the day to day operations.
- What’s next for iAmMoneyMoves?
iAmMoneyMoves: For the first time in history and because of the pandemic, we’re being introduced to a new generation of artists through the digital space. Everyone is visible and accessible. I am excited for what is yet to come. For more information visit: iammoneymoves.com or follow me at @iammoneymoves
