What do you do when what your client thinks is fantastic doesn’t meet your personal standards? o_O
If you work in The Arts, such as being a video editor linkedin.com/in/BillCammack, or a music mixer, your professional reputation is going to depend not only on your efficiency, but also on the content & quality of the final product, and how much your client enjoyed working with you.
It’s different from being, say, an accountant, where you can either count or you can’t, and you either count QUICKLY or you don’t. 😀

Sexual objectification is the act of treating a person as an instrument of sexual pleasure. Objectification more broadly means treating a person as a commodity or an object without regard to their personality or dignity. Objectification is most commonly examined at the level of a society, but can also refer to the behavior of individuals.
Recently, the relationship between money & time has been coming up in conversation a lot. It seems like a pretty basic topic, but it isn’t.
Basically, what people try to do is get their hourly rate / day rate / salary as high as possible, and they consider that to be winning.
One problem is that you have to consider the time you’re spending making that money. You can command a high salary and then the hours demanded from you make it so your hourly rate isn’t really that high, but you still have to give up all your time to get it. Continue reading “Money & Time”
