Talked to Green of Green Gates for a long time last night. Quite an inspirational person. Green reminded me that the old wheel of fate turns and turns and you never know who it will name to succeed next. (We were paraphrasing Bob Dylan of course).
In times of recession, if you start to suffer, then ask yourself, what's the worst that can happen? You could lose everything you own, but the world often knows the cost of everything but the value of very little. What have you really lost? Maybe some options...meaning the option to self publish or the option to retire right away or the option to work at something you love, but as long as you have options then you can always rebuild.
So, if you are losing options, just keep plugging. If you are down to just one option, then take it! But remember your turn could be just around the corner so keep on going. GGE will.
Drop us a line and we can commiserate the fate of all starving artists together!
