Earning money and being famous holds both ways.
The more money you earn,the more famous you are.It doesn’t even have to be personal income,charity work can count.
The more famous you are,the more money you earn.Now this is a little tricky.When the fame is used as means to influence,you earn money.But if that knowledge or skill goes unused on a wider scale,you probably stay where you are.
These hidden talents may not be hidden at all.They could be just undiscovered.
So I guess if you want to earn money,you have to focus on being famous.It is just a simple way to say that meet more people,build a network and spread a word about the talents you possess.
You can’t expect people to respect and pay you unless you prove why you should be respected and paid.
