Show Me the Money
Yes, it would.
Actors are always asking for something. We ask for parts, ask for attention, for praise, for reality to fade away if just for a little while. What’s the difference when it comes to money?
Bob Dylan wisely remarked that “money doesn’t talk, it swears.” Money matters. We are impressed by those that have it, we think less of those that don’t. We hesitate to ask for it, and we hesitate even more to give it. It is, quite literally, our measure of value.
But I’d like to think that my value, our value, is not measured in Treasury Notes. My value is in the project I’m working on, that I believe in, and that I’m looking forward to sharing with the world. And with this thought, I have no problem asking people to contribute a few dollars.
Neither should you.
