I thought this was kind of humorous as I was reading some news speculation about a Twitter feed as a highly known person was giving out very vague messages as if he couldn’t reveal all the details due to legal reasons. This then created speculations on what the situation was about. Since the person made a living making videos on places like Youtube there was then all these comments on how if it has something to do with the company restricting his ability to earn money through that platform then that’s a good thing as now he will have to get a “real” job.
It kind of boggles my mind how people wouldn’t consider what the person does as legitimate “work” as I’m sure it takes a lot of time and marketing to make anything like that into a respectable income stream. You could almost argue it’s virtually no different than starting any kind of business. Otherwise we can then debate that a person that plays an instrument or an individual that plays a sport for a living isn’t involved in a legitimate career.
The other thing this made me think about is how I guess the big thing when it comes to things like this is one’s mentality and recognizing that just because you don’t quite understand something doesn’t mean there is no opportunity in it. Example, just because one guy was taught in a classroom that you can’t run a vehicle without oil doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways to do it. Should be the same thing when it comes to making money too. Or more specifically, making a career out of something.
