The fine line between earning an income and selling out

Be authentic.

Be genuine.

Be honest.

But above all, be you. Be the original version of yourself, not another entity’s paid advertisement.

Don’t get me wrong, we all need to earn a living. We all want to “make money”. None of us can afford to do all of this for free (pun intended).

Supporting an entity is one thing, but don’t change your delivery or your message because of said entity’s wants or needs.

Deliver value. Period

The minute you become a mouthpiece is the minute you stop delivering value.

The minute you become a megaphone you lose your voice.

In an effort to sell your value, you risk becoming a sellout.

Stay worthy.

Stay worthwhile.

Stay worth it.
