Don’t marry your mistress

From Gapingvoid:

Beware of turning hobbies into jobs.It sounds great, but there is a downside.

The late billionaire, James Goldsmith once quipped, “When a man marries his mistress, he immediately creates a vacancy.”

What’s true in philanderers, is also true in life.


Sounds advice for practicing poets and writers and artists and gardeners, but not sound advice for managers, art directors, publishers, marketeers, and business owners.
