There are no more barriers to entry

If you do it, you are a do-er. There was a tune when you needed permission to do things. You needed to get signed to a label in order to

be a professional singer. Those were the good ol’ days. Back when it was more important who you knew than what you knew.

It’s not the case anymore. Now, anyone can be a singer/songwriter/movie star/producer/actor.
Now it’s easy to get public attention. Anyone can do it. The flood gates are open.

If you do it, you are a do-er. If you engineer, you are an engineer. If you plumb, you are a plumber, if you sing, you are a singer, if you write, you are a writer.

Don’t sell yourself short! Don’t say “Oh, well, I do write, but not professionally, so it doesn’t count.” The line between hobbyist and professional is getting blurrier and blurrier. It’s only a matter of time before it disappears at all.

What you do, you are.
