Yes, being authentic with our writing is definitely important.
Funnily enough, the path to financial freedom does not have to be separate from this as you state here. Many of us view money as something that ‘taints’ the writing process in some way, but it doesn’t have to be so. It can be used to generate more time and resources in our own lives and networks to improve our readers even more so than we are capable of doing so now.
I think the most important thing to realize as writers is only we are capable of defining what our writing journey will look like to our lives. We have the power to speak to others, and it’s up to us to do that in the best way we see fit.
I appreciate your kind words Beth. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us.
