Do I follow my passion or do I look for opportunities that bring lots of money?
I don’t think this is a mutually exclusive thing.
I don’t think you are forced to choose only one option and pursue it at the expense of another option.
I think you can do both. You can follow your passion and find a way to make money out of it.
Don’t choose one, choose both, why not?
Why don’t you compromise and be a millionaire artist or something? 🙂
