I have never seen greater nonsense than this quote.
No, even if you love what you do and if you do it well, the money most of the times will NOT follow.
There are many creative people out there who end up playing guitar in a pedestrian zone. I have seen many technicians who became self-employed, only discovering that they end up in bigger misery than being employed.
I have seen many startups going bankrupt, and many new product ideas fail.
And these people all did what they loved to do, and they all did it well.
This Michelle Lee and these Forbes magazine people should be forced to beg for money in a pedestrian zone, for one entire day. That is the punishment that they deserve for this stupid comment.
