πŸ›‘ Why One Media Composer Walked Away

πŸ–οΈ lifestyle Jul 25, 2023

This video might be a tough pill to swallow, but it's worth a watch.

Jacques is an ex-media composer who outlines what prompted him to leave the industry.

I wish I could tell you that these problems don't exist, but they do--I've seen and experienced many of them first-hand:

So here’s my take.

As much as you might want this career, don't want it so badly that you overlook red flags. 🚩

Don't undervalue yourself so much that you accept unsuitable working conditions. πŸ˜₯

And don't be afraid to set boundaries, disagree, or flat out say no. πŸ›‘

Doing all of the above is why I still love what I do and work with people who treat me how I want to be treated. It's not easy when you "want it", but it's essential for your long-term health and happiness.
