The Real Deal
This industry can be full of phony people and con artists. It can be very hard to weed them out until it's too late but most of the time it's easier for us to be taken advantage of because we are really coning ourselves. What I mean is that we all know real from fake but a lot of times it's easier to believe the hype. You have to always be able to recognize the real deal. The thing about being real is that you don't have to hype it. It just is what it is. Whenever someone starts making you a bunch of promises about what they can deliver be very careful. The first thing you want to do is see who else they have done anything for. Have they had any legitimate success in any other situation? This goes for any association because our time is our most valuable asset and we can't afford to have it wasted. It is vital for us to stay focused and always have a plan for our own vision. Don't ever allow yourself to get caught up in the hype. Stay calm and patient. Never put all of your eggs in one basket and never get emotional about your business decisions. When you know the real deal you can't accept BS from ANYONE. Now this doesn't mean that we become jaded and bitter. It just means that we don't waste any time even listening to some one trying to con us and trust me, you will know in the first few words if you are dealing with a con artist. Most of these people don't consider themselves as con artists. They just figure they can fake what they don't know but they don't realize that by wasting our time they do a disservice to themselves as well. It's just best to be honest about what you don't know. You can express an interest to learn and get experience but don't try to sell me the world and you don't even own a block. So as you move forward, don't be guided by your emotions. Stay focused on making great art and work daily toward achieving your goals because inevitably it's all about you looking out for yourself. Enjoy the journey.
