Will Play Guitar For Food
Of course, ultimately we all hold up our own personal signs that read: WILL _______FOR FOOD. We stand at the end of the ramp on the highway overpass of life with our bags of oranges or our Bachelor of Arts and peddle, peddle, peddle.
The way the world lets you peddle is way, way different now. Some people embrace the new way wisely, and they're well-suited to it. Tim Pierce, the pleasant fellow in the video, seems to have rolled out his video instructional channel as a vision of the whole thing right away. He's gotten tens of thousands of subscribers to his channel right quick, and for good reason. He has the only two things that matter on the Intertunnel. He can demonstrate (understatement warning) some form of ability, and he also has evidence of what I call the magic beans: he made money at it already.
People will listen to you if you can convince them you have the magic beans, even if you're useless. People will pay attention to you in a more desultory fashion if you have a demonstrated ability. If you have both, they're an unbeatable combination.
Tim Pierce was kind to my Heir once. I'm not sure he'll ever need to move a body, but I'll take the feet if it ever comes up.
