Newest AWAI Member Case Study:
Cindy Cyr

The past summer, Cindy Cyr was crisscrossing the country multiple times with her 14-year-old son, Dalton, a singer, songwriter, actor, and recording artist. This bi-coastal life may be the new reality for the Cyrs, and the ability to take their jobs anywhere has been essential to Dalton’s growing career.

“Honestly, I don’t think Dalton would be doing what he’s doing right now if we couldn’t go with him, because it would just be too much time apart,” said his mom, Cindy. “In June, we were told we really needed to spend more time in L.A. Not many people could move as fast as we did and keep their jobs.”

In a typical week, Cindy accompanies Dalton to numerous meetings and auditions during the workday. But despite the hectic, irregular schedule, she still earns an impressive six-figures annually.

Find out how Cindy maintains a six-figure income and manages her son’s music career.
