Day 23: Compensation
Today I got the prize when my novice artists placed 2nd last Christmas.
After the long wait, I got what we deserve. We may not made it all at the finish line but our teamwork put our program in the company’s competition map. In my opinion, that is what’s more important.
Being their POC is a lonely job. In a sense, you ought to be: you just cannot lead from a crowd of heroes and thieves. I got bashers, I got haters. I placed my reputation in a bad light. I declined corporate meetings, I lost my grandmom during the competition, I got hated for backing up my decisions. People didn’t understand. But with my Artist’s Guild behind my back, I was never alone. Yes, we have misses and slips. But we tried so hard. What a talent. What a discipline. What a team.
Love is more important.
