Early on I learned that skillset is more important than popularity. In this life of social media and being influenced by the internet on a mass scale we can forget the importance of being skilled. Money will come and the job you want will come. But if you are not prepared for when those moments do come you will not be able to match the level required.
Money is good but eventually it will run out. The day to day grind of being in tune with your craft and getting better than someone who is just focused on the quick money. Focusing on the quick money will hinder you from being truly successful. But I know each of us has a different view of success.
