This question is a tough one to answer because so much can be riding on the choice you make.
Give Up Creativity for Money:
-Looked at as a sellout.
-Can provide shelter, food, and education for your loved ones.
-Can enjoy all life has to offer for material possessions and experiences.
-Can struggle for food/shelter/education.
-Can be taken to the grave and buried with you if not taken care of correctly,
-Could die out over time with no help to innovate.
-Can take greater pride in having something unique to yourself that you brought into this world.
Because you don't specifically have an object, idea, or concept in mind I had to answer as vaguely as possible.
