Every now and then an artist or a writer would stumble upon the question – can you spin a career out of your talents? In a capitalist world as today’s, our minds are saturated with the concepts of survival, growth, and success, where leading a life with monetary success remains the foreground of our contemporary active role. It is true – eventually, you are part of the capitalist bandwagon and no matter how much you wish to revolt against the system, you simply cannot escape the matrix. After all, bills are to be paid.
