There is a lot more to being a professional than just having skills. Pros stand firm on their pricing, safety and values. This means saying “no” to people who want you to perform for too little, or perform in a setting that is unsafe for you or the audience, or perform in a way that goes against your values. Be polite, try to educate and don’t be afraid to say “No.”
