You may be wondering, “what is this girl going to talk about?!” For those of you that work in the industry of the arts as artists, it can be really hard to make a living out of it. In today’s society everyone loves to be entertained, but hates paying for it. Many companies fail to realize that you cannot ask for a specific and demanding performance four days in advance and expect to only pay $200 for it, or my favorite…when they ask you to perform for free. People need to realize that these are people’s livelihoods, this is how they are making their living. Realize that time and effort has gone into this, many are willing to pay accordingly for speakers and everything else. It is crucial that you do so for the dancers and other forms of entertainment as well. Now don’t get me wrong, when you are first starting out you must pay your dues, but know your worth. That is all.
