Perfect timing for what I’m doing. Wrestling with a little self doubt about being as real and authentic as I can possibly be so my work stands on its own as original creative work. Appreciate the recommendation!

I think we should also consider how many brands have alienated vast chunks of their customer base by linking their product with their politics.

Is that a risk worth taking in order to be 'authentic'?

And is that what it even means to be authentic?

Is it compromise or cowardice to simply make a great 'whatever' and keep your opinions to yourself?

I suspect those answers are as individualistic as the people pondering them.

I always think of Elvis Presley who, when asked for his thoughts about the Vietnam War, said "I'm a singer, honey. Don't nobody care what I think."
