The world is vicious, brutal, and unforgiving; if you choose to see it that way. On the contrary, you could view it as exciting, challenging, and rewarding. Regardless of how you perceive the world, what comes first, passion or money?
Does an artist create art because they see a business opportunity in making a living by selling it, or does the artist follow his or her passion so adamantly that it shows in the product, and people buy it?
Does a business man or women make money simply to make money, or does he or she have a passion for the art of business, which the money is a benefit of?
Does the musician write music to make money, or is it their undying love of music that allows them to create a living by selling it?
The question now arises; would these people stop doing what they are doing if they didn’t make money doing it?
Of course not, but the scale must remain in balance in order to survive.
