IGNORE CONVENTIONAL WISDOM
Netflix was godhead, then toast and now godhead again. Huh? People can’t see the future and they’re not living in the building. Most of what people say is uninformed crap.
DON’T WORRY ABOUT WHAT PEOPLE SAY
It’s a full time job dealing with the haters. Furthermore, their goal is to get you to engage and to drag you down into the hole they’re in. Blaze your own path and forget about them.
EXPOSURE DOES NOT ALWAYS PAY DIVIDENDS
People ask you to work for free, put yourself out there for the “exposure.” They’re hustlers. The exposure frequently results in nothing. Oftentimes their audience is limited. Ask for money, if they’re unwilling to pay, walk on.
DON’T BE HOLIER THAN THOU
Oh, people may accuse you of this, ignore them. The point is don’t get defensive and don’t stand on the mountaintop preaching that you know the answer. I’m gonna let you in on a little secret…we’re all clueless!
