Of course we all want fair remuneration for what we do. I’ve seen people at all levels taken advantage of by their employers.
But—I’d direct shows for free. Directing has been an almost-lifelong passion. Plus I’d like to hit that career goal of 100 shows, and I’m only at 88.
Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I’m actually making more money in retirement than I was when working. (Let me know if you want my financial planner’s contact info.) So any way I can feed that passion—let me know!
