Athena and I need money… just not a lot of it.

I need money… just not a lot of it.

JAN 13 — Recently, someone I know was playing with my daughter Athena. My baby looked like she was having a good time, smiling and coo-ing. Then that someone actually said, “Athena, you’re going to grow up to be a millionaire, aren’t you little girl?”

Oh, can you imagine my horror!

Why are people so obsessed with making money? No matter how hard I try to understand this, my simple mind just really can’t. I definitely understand why we need money and, I need it to. What I don’t understand is how certain people want to make A LOT of it, and make it their life obsession too.

I run my small little media company that does my small little passion projects, and people always ask me if I can “make money” by doing this. I tell them that I’m not interested in making money. All I want to do is be happy doing what I like doing and just make a living out of it.

These people will smile and pretend to understand, but I can see it in their faces. They really look all perplexed and confused. [Click to read the rest of the article at The Malaysian Insider]
