To thrive in this industry you have to treat it just like any other job. If you’re not getting paid for your work, you should at least have your expenses to include travel, lodging, and food taken care. But that should only be in the beginning when you are trying to get experience. Eventually you need to get paid for your skills. This is your job now. You wouldn’t work at any other profession without getting paid. In regards to not burning out, you need to stay focused on what you are doing and make goals. Without goals you will only be spinning your wheels. You need to surround yourself with positive people who are actually making it. You also need to make it fun especially since there is so much competition in this industry and a lot of rejection. In other words find a way to enjoy the ride. And when you do finally make it you have to be able to give back and help someone else that is struggling to be able to find happiness and success in the industry.
