Does your business conform with your morals?
Why work for people who think your output is worthless?

Prediction is a skill like any other. The more comfortable you become with it the better your career will go.
You can’t make everyone happy…
Are you “working” 5 hour a day on your social media marketing, or are you just watching a lot of cat videos?
Have you setup you business model to allow for you getting the flu?
