It may be highly critical, but on the whole, I think I'm moving out of cynical. Wanting to help but failing at business sounds like me. At my last job, supposedly I lost the company $100,000, though they didn't tell me exactly how, and they didn't fire me for it. Instead, I got fired for telling a joke.
Yet I wonder how you categorize ''business people'' in the first place. I think, for example, that a lot of people in the arts and entertainment industry are doing what they love first and foremost. I can't imagine working in the video game industry either if there's no love for video games.
Business people to me are those people who specialize and take a special interest in business transactions. Arts, entertainment, sports people are not business people. It's not the money you make, it's how you make it.
Basically my mind is trying to rescue yours from the black pit of despair it seems to be infatuated with |
I'm not infatuated, MU, with any "black pits", though I can see what you're trying to say here, and I'm working on that, myself, with this very thread, in fact.
