Going for “likes” instead of money
Look: everyone wants to be the best, of course. If you’re a musician, you hope to be world-renown. If you’re a comedian, you hope to have a special on Netflix. There is a lot of area in between obscurity and fame where millennials can make money, but it seems we’re all too fixated on being the top one to recognize those mid-level opportunities. I know too many millennial musicians just putting out social media content, for free, hoping something goes viral, but who never reach out to a local carnival or restaurant about paid gigs.
