If something is worth doing then it’s worth doing properly. Don’t cut corners. There’s no substitute for hard work. You should apply the maximum amount of effort into everything you do regardless of the size of the audience or pay packet. Whether you’re playing to an audience of 10 or 10,000, doing something for free or getting paid handsomely, it should all be treated equally. You never know who is watching or listening and therefore what new opportunities might arise from the job in hand.
