Making Your Fortune
The concept of working for your own self (artists fall into this class) and rising to your level of achievement based on work instead of birthright is meritocracy—a quintessential American phenomenon.
Of course, to produce something no one wants to buy does not add up to a living, either.
A creator will always find a way of earning his daily bread to nourish his body while making art for his soul.
