Albuquerque native uses values instilled by her parents as inspiration to start her own management business

Rosabelle Eales was instilled with the value of hard work as both her parents were self-employed.

This played into her being comfortable with making the jump to start her own management company – Overall Management – nearly five years ago.

“When I think about the move, it felt natural,” Eales says. “I watched my parents be self-employed and I knew that it took discipline and hard work.”

Based in Los Angeles, Overall Management represents the artists – gnash, Imad Royal, Girl Wilde, alexmaax and Ilan Rubin.

“Overall is the future of management companies,” Eales says. “It’s a grassroots, women-founded home for creative individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life to share their dreams and make them a reality.”

Eales does this through empowerment and collaboration.

Growing up in Albuquerque, Eales never realized she could have a career in the music industry.

Little did she know, she was well on her way.

As a teen and a student at St. Pius X High School, she was one of a group of collaborators working to get Warehouse 508 off the ground.

The Albuquerque organization provides a youth-focused, youth-driven avenue to introduce, develop and professionally implement skills in the arts, music, outdoor recreation and nontraditional sports. Through mentorships and lifestyle events youth are invited to explore their potential and encouraged to create opportunities for themselves, take risks and begin thinking and acting as creative entrepreneurs.

But it wasn’t until college, when she realized a career could actually be a reality.

“That transition felt very natural,” she says. “I never realized I was doing this all along.”

Yet, as she made her way in the music industry, she saw firsthand how women are treated differently in the industry – and didn’t want to fall into the cycle.

“I have an amazing dad who is a really important figure in my life,” she explains. “I learned from him to not be intimidated by men. The older I get, I recognize the need to make my voice heard and demand the respect. At the beginning of my career, I ignorantly assumed that everyone felt the same way I do. It’s a journey.”

Eales made her way into the industry while she was in college. She began to work with rap artist G-Eazy.

By 25, she launched Overall Management.

“When I started the company I was super blessed when gnash asked me to join his team,” she says. “He was coming off some successful singles and I saw a different level of success. I threw myself in the deep end and began to work hard. We just signed our sixth client.”

While Overall Management continues to grow, Eales isn’t in a hurry for it to grow too quickly.

“I want my company to grow incredible artists and managers,” she says. “The ultimate ethos is to be happy, healthy and abundant. I put quality of life above else.”

Eales hopes to eventually make her way back home to Albuquerque.

“I’m determined to figure out a way to help local organizations back home,” she says. “Whether it’s scholarships or grants, I want to give back to the place that helped inspire me. I wouldn’t be where I’m at if I hadn’t learned all the important lessons growing up in Albuquerque.”
