Louis C.K. is arguably the most successful standup comedian working today.
Not just because of his sitcom or standup specials, but because of his do-it-yourself mentality.
He famously produced, shot, edited, and distributed his standup special Live at the Beacon Theater. This smart self-distribution model was quickly adapted by others.
In an interview with the New York Times Louis C.K. asserts that such creative freedom didn’t happen overnight. He uses the phrase “horrible process” in describing his rise.
This is exactly what is wrong with telling people, “If you do what you love, you’ll never work a day in your life”. You’re providing them with a flawed description of reality.
Building a business requires a lot of work. Sometimes even “horrible” work.
