Bad Company

Some the harshest, sadly most are true, comments that Ive received while in the business that came from my mentors, other artists and family members
   You dont make enough to even pay to recharge your batteries
   What were you thinking
   Nobody will buy that image
   Were you drunk
   OMG! Sell your camera because you suck
   An eight-year-old couldve done better
   Spraying and Praying for just one good image
   You will never make even fifty dollars a month with your skills

Fortunately for me, I don't have any mentors, I don't ask other artists how I am doing and my family couldn't care less.

Doesn't really matter what job you have does it now? There will always be people who talk $hit about what you do. If you really think these comments are true, you might as well quit the business.

Healthy attitude!

Even more, I often find that those "mentors", always ready to offer their advice, have no idea what sells and what not.
