I believe in supporting local businesses and the dreams of friends. But, what I don’t believe in is supporting work that I am unable to appreciate. I don’t like saying “bad business” or “tasteless art” because everyone has different expectations but I will not dish out money to that which I don’t believe is valuable. I will give you a shot because I believe in supporting small businesses and those who I believe in. But if you provide me with some garbage, I’m probably going to tell you to go back to the drawing board and come back when you’ve refined your product.
Make professional development a priority.
