... Should simply not be earned.
There are the shoots that require the taking off of too much clothes along with your dignity... And the jobs that you don't really believe in. And then the people that are willing to pay you but are rude to you and try to tell you how to do your job.
How to deal?
So the reason I'm blogging about this is a personal encounter with a blogshop owner who not only didn't give me respect for my work, but also talked in a way that was extremely rude. I sent my friends screenshots of our whatsapp conversation and asked my friends what to do. One or two suggested I just take the money and do a shit job because... Well, why shouldn't I take this rude person's money, right?
I thought about it for a second and decided against it immediately. I asked for her account number minutes later and did a refund.
Of course I would love to make her money, but I would only wanna do ads that I 1) truly believe in 2) really put effort into doing.
Some money should simply not be earned. Not when it makes you feel small, not when it takes your pride and dignity in exchange, not when you know you shouldn't do it. Money can be earned in many ways and I always believe in working hard and always being true to yourself.
Before you think that I am unable to take criticisms, I most definitely am. But only if it is constructive and not degrading nor disrespectful. I am probably my worst critic anyway!!!
Hopefully I don't ever have to come across any more unprofessional people like this! But seriously speaking, most, almost all the blogshop owners I've worked with are amazing. Just check out what this sweetheart Cleo who owns shopOOTD did for my family/me just two nights ago!
More on the item from her blogshop soon - stay tuned to my instagram!
And a random selfshot - me in a thinking pose when I'm really just showing off my nails HAHAHA.
Also no eyeliner which I'm starting to embrace!
Have a great rest of the week guys!
