HI CREATIVE,

NICE TO VIRTUALLY MEET YOU.

CAN WE CHAT?

YES. GREAT 😊

COMMENT YOUR THOUGHTS BELOW. 

—————————————————————-

I LIVE IN A STATE WHERE RENT FOR A ONE-BEDROOM IS OVER $1,500, WHILE THE MINIMUM WAGE WAS RAISED TO $12 AN HOUR ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2023.

THE MAXIMUM UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFITS ARE $275 A WEEK.

YOU REALLY GET NO ASSISTANCE, UNLESS YOU ARE WITH A CHILD, HOWEVER, “SINGLES” PAY EXTRA IN TAXES. (PERIOD).

QUESTION? 

IF SINGLES CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY, WHY WOULD “SINGLES” NOT RECEIVE THE SAME, IF NOT ADDITIONAL BENEFITS WHILE IN TRANSITION?

—————————————————————-

WHEN CONDUCTING A GOOGLE SEARCH, THE BELOW RESULTS RETURN:

WHY IS FLORIDA’S UNEMPLOYMENT AMOUNT SO LOW?

“THROUGH STRONG ECONOMIC POLICY AND STRATEGIC INVESTMENTS, FLORIDA IS OUTPERFORMING THE NATION AND PROVIDING MORE OPPORTUNITY FOR ITS CITIZENS, RESULTING IN MORE THAN 200,000 NEW BUSINESS FORMATIONS THIS YEAR ALONE AND AN UNEMPLOYMENT RATE NEAR AN ALL-TIME LOW,” SAID GOVERNOR RON DESANTIS

IS FLORIDA’S UNEMPLOYMENT LOW?

TALLAHASSEE, FLA. – TODAY, FLORIDACOMMERCE ANNOUNCED THAT FLORIDA’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE REMAINS AT A STEADY 2.7 PERCENT IN AUGUST 2023 WHILE THE NATIONAL RATE CLIMBED 0.3 PERCENTAGE POINTS TO 3.8 PERCENT. AUGUST 2023 MARKS THE 34TH CONSECUTIVE MONTH FLORIDA’S UNEMPLOYMENT RATE HAS REMAINED BELOW THE NATION.

—————————————————————-

FROM MY OBSERVATION, YES THERE ARE MORE JOBS, HOWEVER, IN WHAT FIELDS?

FAST FOOD, RETAIL, GIG WORK?

I SEE A LOT OF PROFESSIONALS HAVING TO “DOWNGRADE” IN POSITIONS TO PAY BILLS.

WITH TECHNOLOGY TAKING OVER, AS IN AI…WE ARE SEEING IT MORE, NEED I GO FUTHER?

—————————————————————-

THIS IS WHERE IT GETS PERSONAL, HOPE YOU’RE STILL WITH ME 😊

—————————————————————-

I STARTED MY COMPANY WITH A VISION OF BECOMING A MINI CAREER SOURCE FOR ALL TYPES OF CREATIVES!

—————————————————————-

BORN INTO A FAMILY, THAT NOT ONLY HAD RESPECT AND ABUNDANCE BUT ALSO A HISTORIC PRESENCE IN MUSIC.

*HUMBLE BRAG*

ONE OF PROFESSOR GEORGE W. SENOGA-ZAKE’S GRANDDAUGHTERS, HINTS AT THE NAME IN ICZAKE, ALSO INSPIRED BY MY NEPHEW’S INITALS IC – I CREATE.

ZAKE MEANS- LET THEM SHINE.

…I CAME TO REALIZE THAT WHAT I HAVE KNOWN TO BE LOVE WAS SHOWN TO ME BY MUSIC.

MUSIC SPEAKS TO ME ON LEVELS HUMAN INTERACTION CAN REACH, IT HELPED ME ALSO DISCOVER MY TALENT IN DRAWING, PAINTING, PLAYING THE FLUTE, SINGING, AND DANCING.

—————————————————————-

*FLASHBACK ALERT

AS A YOUNG GIRL IN GERMANY, I COULDN’T SIT STILL.

I NEEDED TO MOVE!

I NEEDED TO UNDERSTAND HOW ELSE I COULD EXPRESS MYSELF BUT USE ALL OF ME!

BALLET CLASSES ARE ART, WITH NO WORDS.

PROFESSIONALLY FIGURE SKATING IS WHERE I COULD BE AGGRESSIVE.

FOR 20 YEARS, ALL THESE EXPERIENCES GAVE ME DIFFERENT LESSONS IN LEARNING HOW TO BE CREATIVE, AND HOW TO PLAN AND MOVE ACCORDINGLY WHEN LOOKING AT EVERY SITUATION FROM A DIFFERENT ANGLE.

—————————————————————-

IN 2007, I GRADUATED FROM USF WITH MY BACHELOR OF SCIENCE DEGREE, A MAJOR IN MARKETING.

ON A JOURNEY TO DISCOVER MY PURPOSE I TOOK POSITIONS IN MULTIPLE INDUSTRIES, (MY LINKEDIN PROFILE SHOWS THE JOURNEY, SO DO YOUR THING, LOL.)

NONE OF WHICH ALIGNED WITH MY SKILLS AND MY 50K IN STUDENT LOANS!

NOWADAYS’ MARKETING IS, BUT HONESTLY ALWAYS HAS BEEN SALES DRIVEN, COMING OUT OF COLLEGE WHAT ARE THE EXPECTATIONS?

WHY SHOULD WE WORK ON COMMISSION. TO HELP BUILD YOUR BRAND

….NO THANK YOU!

THIS POST IS ME EXPRESSING, THAT IT HAS NOT WORKED THUS FAR!

HOWEVER, IN MY FIELD. I HAVE STUDIED, TESTED, AND MONITORED ALL PLATFORMS.

SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORMS ALLOW CERTAIN POSTS TO GO VIRAL, BUT AT WHAT POINT DO WE ALL BECOME HONEST ABOUT THE ACTUAL PROBLEM WE ARE FACING AND HOW DO WE WORK ON A SOLUTION AS THE PEOPLE WHO HELP BUILD THESE COMPANIES AND PLATFORMS?

CEOS OF FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES APPEAR TO HAVE IT ALL FIGURED OUT, YES- “THEY’VE PUT THEIR WORK IN.”

WHILE THE STAFF STRUGGLES WITH FINANCES AND MENTAL HEALTH IN ORDER TO “PAY BILLS”. 

THE VIRAL POSTS MAKE US FEEL CONNECTED, BUT WHAT DIFFERENCE DO THEY MAKE IF WE ARE JUST COLLECTING LIKES ON POSTS?

—————————————————————-

I’VE EXPERIENCED THE PROS AND CONS OF WORKING WITH START-UPS AND FORTUNE 500 COMPANIES.

THEREFORE I FEEL EMPOWERED TO POSE THE FOLLOWING QUESTIONS TO THE POLITICIANS MAKING ALL THE RULES.

WHY DO WE NOT OFFER 9-5 JOBS FOR CREATIVES WHO HELP MAKE THE WORLD GO ROUND?  

FOCUSING ON MUSIC ALONE:

THE MOST TALKED ABOUT CONCERTS THIS YEAR:

  • BEYONCE KNOWLES-CARTER: RENAISSANCE WORLD TOUR
  • TAYLOR SWIFT: THE ERAS TOUR THESE ARTISTS HAVE SHOWN HARD WORK, HUMILITY 

THE MENTIONED ARTISTS HAVE EXEMPLIFIED HARD WORK, SACRIFICE, PASSION, COMPASSION, TALENT, HUMANITY, ETC.

A KEY WORD NOT MENTIONED IS THE ECONOMIC BOOST, NEED I GO FURTHER?

AS A CREATIVE, SERAIL ENTERPERAUNARE, SELF-PROCLAIMED VISIONARY I AM VERY MUCH LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING THE COMMENTS

ENLIGHTEN ME, EDUCATE ME, AS TO WHY.

WE AS THE PEOPLE WHO CONTRIBUTE TO SOCIETY ARE CURRENTLY WORKING MULTIPLE JOBS TO UPHOLD A STANDARD OF LIVING.

WHAT AM I MISSING?

WHAT ARE “THEY” MISSING?

I CONCLUDE, WE HAVE A VOICE and WE NEED TO SPEAK UP.

LET ME KNOW YOUR THOUGHTS.
