You may be the most creative person in the world, but do you have a product to represent you? A book or CD? Something that can be mass-produced?
I have some print copies of my photos, and, well… that’s about it. So if I die tomorrow, I won’t leave behind much of a legacy. At the very least I should create a book of photos.
My father has a book that he has been unable to sell… but at least he has something.
If your product is hand-made crafts or paintings, you don’t really have a product because everything is dependent on you. If you get run over by a bus or someone saws your hands off, BAM, there goes your product. But if you have something that can be made by printing press or assembly line, then you have a product. Even computer softwater counts.
Time is precious. Create something now, or be forgotten forever!
