Before there is a battle of the sexes in the comments section...I mean the traditional sense of 'Man'
where Man - defined as:
A member of the species Homo sapiens or all the members of this species collectively, without regard to sex: prehistoric man.
A human being; a person
However, if you still feel the inclination to discuss the gaining social sensitivity to go out of the way to make everything gender neutral, feel free...But it should be reminded that sex is of the flesh and soul knows no gender for we are all One, right? Well, go ahead and contribute your thoughts on that...
Anyway, on to the nitty gritty of the matter at hand. Let us think back before the crash of General Motors in the Motor City, Detroit. A man could go right out of highschool and get a job at a factory and support his family decently. That is not the case anymore, there are college graduates working two jobs to pay off student loans and some even living on the streets.
We now live in the age of the 'Crash Years' (A term I coined by inspiration from Neko Case & The New Pornographer's “Together
,” but most likely for certainly has several references elsewhere). From recessions to so much panic that the media plead that there was no recession, to constant analysis pointing to a double dip recession that some of our European brethren like Spain and Greece faced, to bailouts and back to panic of when and why another recession may happen it is needless to say that the economy of the States isn't that same stable rock it once imagined itself to be.
So now as we tread carefully on eggshells...
(Insert picture of seashells as a metaphor of the tides changing like the ocean's current)
We know that the market is volatile. To truly succeed in this day and age – no to survive – many are not only working one trade or job, but multiple. Look at social media and the internet; Myspace to Facebook – Facebook to Twitter – Twitter to Instagram...But wait! Which is suitable to your marketing type and demographic? You are business oriented and have apt networking skills so surely LinkedIn and Pinterest are up your alley, right? Although, your product may be geared toward the younger generation and Tumblr is very hot for the teen to young adult age group...For now...
More and more everyday individuals must utilize their research skills on how to diversify themselves to keep up with this now inundated and competitive changing free trade world. For instance, there is nothing I myself love doing more than creating art, whether it be new music
, writing, filming shorts or what have you. However I also realize that I do not live in a time where you can just showcase great art and expect to make a lot of money, unless you get extremely lucky. This is why I also took up entrepreneurship and started working with National Wealth Center
, to give me the ability to have my own independent label and create a way to do what I love.
Here is some food for thought to end this note on with you, if you do not act now in our economy with so much competition, do you not think that someone else will? Like Nas said, “The World is Yours.” So go out and take it! If you want success, wealth, art, whatever it is you must act now! If you are not living your dream today to create a better tomorrow than you are fading from your dream to a history already forgotten.
I implore you, keep mindfulness that there is no such thing as “the perfect time.” You hate your surroundings, change what you are around. You don't like your job? Create a new one. Don't waste your time settling for a life not worth your greatness. You are more <3
Life waits for no man, act now, live your dream today.
