Are you a producer or a consumer? In this video I discuss that both are necessary for the ecosystem to exist. Imagine an artist as the producer, creating amazing works of art. There needs to be consumers that appreciate the artists’ efforts, otherwise you have a poor staving artist that can’t make a living doing what he loves. The consumers are a critical component in the ecosystem of produce and consume. There are some bad cases of consumption, where the consumer is no give and all take. But for the ecosystem to thrive the producer needs to have an audience of consumers that appreciate and PURCHASE the value that the producer creates. Like most things in life, there needs to be balance. I was inspired to create this video by a conversation I had on Facebook with other producers of content, fellow podcasters and writers. They are an inspiration, and I appreciate that.
