There's nothing wrong with making money. In this world it is a necessity. Poverty doesn't help anyone. But you'll see around here how some people devote themselves to making money and nothing else. Do what you can to avoid that, I think is the best approach. There are ways to be yourself and do what you want to do and still make some money here. You don't have to become a VULTURE like some... Be curious and skeptical, always, just as you might be in any area of life. But watch out for those expectations. Just like anywhere in life. Goals are good; expectations? Not so much.
