"Do you know what great architects understand?
If you don't get it built, the work doesn't matter.
Great architects are able to be great because they know how to sell their ideas to their clients. (Or, they know how to find clients who will build their ideas. Same thing.)
If you're brilliant and undiscovered and underappreciated (in whatever field you choose), then you're being too generous about your definition of brilliant."
I officially crossed the two year line with my business where I can start paying my sales tax annually instead of quarterly. It's like New York State saying, "We finally consider you a real business, and we trust you."
