Do you feel queasy about your opportunities to make money? Is lack of cash flow causing you to second-guess your talent and professional worth?
Stop. It’s time to look at your situation differently.
When Money is scarce, special precautions need to be taken so that you don’t drive your Mojo away. Creative Thinkers,especially writers and artists, need to build a protective firewall between money issues and the interior space where creativity is nurtured. Always remember that your Mojo is sort of funny about your relationship with Money. If you get too starry-eyed or frantic about pursuing the Mighty Dollar, Mojo will dump you like a jealous fiancé.
Now, wait a minute. That doesn’t mean walking on eggshells about Money for fear that you’ll upset your Mojo. Money is not a taboo topic. Clearly, we’re in a very tough and changing economic season. You need Money and you deserve to be paid appropriately for your Talent. However, you can unwittingly cross a big line with your Mojo if your relationship with Money somehow means Money rules, and Passion and Talent are demoted to second-class citizens. Mojo hates that kind of Money Pickle.
