What if your innate talent is for something that society doesn’t value sufficiently that you have enough money to keep a roof over your children’s heads ? I know someone who is a good enough artist that she has exhibited at the Tate. But the market for modern art is small and the supply is quite large. She has worked as a nanny, which she didn’t like much, and relied on her parents for financial support literally to keep a roof over her head. How would it be possible for her to be content and poor (I mean properly poor - minimum wage poor, food bank poor, that sort of poor) ?
