Money is not good or bad or evil. Money simply is.
It's a marker for the value that you created for someone else. It holds no power on its own. Without you it is nothing. With you it is simply an enabler. What you do with it is your choice, and it's how you bestow whatever energy you want to on the money that is yours.
If you doubt this, just step back for a moment and think about the Tao of money. Money was not created thousands of years ago in some wild brainstorming session. It evolved out of human interaction, which started when people got tired of carrying pounds of grain to a market every time they wanted to buy some meat.
Today it's no different. Jobs and products may have changed, but the system remains the same. I bring this up because so many people have an aversion to making it. It's as if they believe they have lost their integrity once people are willing to pay for the value in what they do.
In the end, the only real question is not whether money is good or bad.
The only question is what will you do with yours?
You can do good and give your money to charities; Bill Gates does that in the billions. You can follow your ego and spend it on influence, although our political system is already weighed down with enough of that. You can invest it in a child's education and watch them flourish or you can spend it on one-time indulgences and watch as they go out of style.
Whichever way you go, know that you get what you pay for. If carrying around a logo bag is your thing, go for it. Just know that when the next runway show comes along, your self-worth hinges on your ability to buy the next one some marketer has told you is the “must have” item.
