Helloooo, Chase Reeves!
I am totally projecting here, but I’m guessing the article was in response to all the people whose lives you touch, in a very practical way, through your podcast and community, so obviously your experience carries the day.
I can’t help but to wonder, though, why there has to be such a dichotomy. Searching back through the cobwebs of years of Sunday School, (centuries ago), wasn’t there the verse:
“Your gift will make room for you, and bring you before great men?”
I totally get the gist of your article, and concur, I’m only adding that the other dimension that makes things complicated is: the tension of being an “either/or” situation, as in: EITHER happiness (or) money.
Wouldn’t life be grand if your best creative expression could be the path to fulfillment AND the best chance for extra pesos!!!!
