I have finally come to the conclusion that I am not cut out for anything requiring any type of marketing. I think it's because deep down I feel like if you have to advertise for something, it can't be that important or necessary therefore the person just wants money from you. I mean lets face it, if someone truly wants or needs something, they don't have to be convinced to buy it. I have tried to change this mindset but it just goes against every cell in my body. I would actually feel guilty if I made a product and then tried to get people to buy it from me. When I want something, I find it on Amazon and order it, or go to a store that sells that thing, no advertising necessary. Maybe it's because I'm a minimalist hippie who has few possessions and values only freedom, nature, love and music. My circle of peers aren't the kind of people who spend money on things they don't need. Most people I know create art or music and they never advertise, in fact the best painter I have ever seen in my life only sells her paintings at small local music festivals and they average from $500 to $3000 a piece. She doesn't need an Etsy account or a website. I am wondering if maybe the reason why I haven't been motivated enough to start earning money online is because the marketing side of it goes against my values and who I am as a person. I do want to earn money working online though, I want something that is location independent and something I don't need to leave the house to do. I want something that I don't have to trade my time for. Is it possible for someone like me to be successful with this? Maybe there is a way to earn money online without selling something? Or at least not needing to advertise for it?
