6 Things I’ve Learned As A CEO
Being a modern-day CEO means accepting that there is no new normal. In fact, I am relatively confident there never was an old normal to begin with. We are far from processing the ripple effects of 2020, let alone the last five years. According to a report I read, technological advances in society could displace up to 85 million jobs within the next five years.

Be Vocal Our thoughts are never far from the tragedies that continue to define the pandemic, as well as the divisiveness and growing socioeconomic divide in our country.

We said the following 4 years ago... The entire evolution of digital media, and every individual technological advancement, is met with the same questions. Sociologically, every new digital platform is viewed through that same lens: “How can I have my voice heard on the internet? How can I make money on the internet?

It is not a particularly even playing field in the race to internet fame. However, it is also very early in the transition from analog to digital, and advances are coming at an exponential pace.
Jerrick to Creatd 2020 Presentation
With our second quarter financial results filed, Q2 proved to be a validating quarter for our company's growth strategy. Among other exciting milestones, our company achieved a substantial increase in revenues year over year and a 10% increase from the previous quarter. Plus, with our team having onboarded nearly 4,000 Vocal+ subscribers and 679,000 Freemium creators to date, our projections indicate that Vocal will grow to approximately 10,000 Vocal+ paid subscribers and 750,000 Freemium members by the end of 2020. And we'll do it with the help of our partners–that's you, the Vocal creators–with upcoming features like referral incentives to make it well worth everyone's while to expand our network. In fact, that's the key factor for virtually any decision we make about Vocal. As we've said many times in the past–the success of our company is tied to our creators' success on Vocal. In fact, our success is dependent on it.
