“Are you an illustrator?”

“Yes”

“Are you a photographer?”

“Yes”

“Are you a writer?”

“Yes”

“Are you a videographer?”

“Yes”

“… Graphic Design?”

“Yes”

“And you do websites to?”

“Yes”

“Well you can’t be very skilled at all of those, I mean, ‘a jack of all trades master on none’ and all…”

“And?”

“And what?”

“You left out the last part”

“The last part of what?”

“The last part of the sentence”

“…”

“A jack of all trades, master of none, often times better than a master of one.”

“I don’t get it.”

“It’s okay, I will let it sink in.”

“I am not niave…”

“No, you aren’t but you also miss the point.  People are driven by passions, and if they so happen to be passionate about creating, then it’s misguided people like yourself that assume having more than one passion is a bad thing. It’s assumed that because I didn’t go to school for photography that I can’t read books about it or I don’t have a natural eye.  It’s assumed that since I didn’t go to school for video that I don’t read hours and hours on the internet learning.  It’s assumed that since I want to better myself in every art form that I can imagine that I have nothing better to do with my time.  Answer me this, if you had a project due, and needed a project manager, would it be better to hire a photographer to manage the graphic designer? Or would you rather the illustrator manage the video department?  Not saying that they couldn’t do the job, but wouldn’t you want someone more prepared to take on the responsibility in case someone crapped out on you?  Pick up where the ‘master’ left off and produce a quality product in its place?”

“… Are you an accountant too?”

“Not yet, give me time.”
