Just a thought, what if the stuff that you think will work, it did not work at all? or it is partially work, but not that great at all?
I do think that what make some profession expensive, for example you code something, and it did not work.. what would you do? some people just shutting down and denial, some of us keep the wheel spinning until you get out from the loop. This is what separate professional with those who come just for the money.
