I had the pleasure of speaking with Liv (over Zoom, thanks 2020) about her incredible growth on Tik Tok and where she gets all her ideas.
The global pandemic has created exceptional challenges across the board, and uprooted the roles, responsibilities, and priorities of essentially every working person on the planet, from CEO to intern and everyone in between.
As an influencer, it’s easy to feel like your life isn’t interesting enough. You may not have a flashy Tesla, a house in Los Angeles, or tickets to next year’s MET Gala. Don’t worry, there is still hope for you.
Social media is anathema to writers everywhere. I always thought that statement was true. That may be what you thought, too. In many ways, social media is a distraction from truly creating; it’s a black hole of time, energy, and inspiration.
After evaluating the data with the host platform for our shareholder meeting, Issuer Direct, we broke an attendance record for an OTCQB company shareholder meeting. Along with that, we received a record amount of questions and felt compelled to both elaborate on those we were able to address on the call and add a number of other interesting insights and questions we received from the rest of our investor community.
No one on the frontlines of the hair industry really wants to talk about a pandemic. I don't mean influencers like Brad Mondo who have the luxury of being able to stay at home and review TikTok hair tutorials for income. I mean your regular shmegular hair dressers at Fantastic Sam's who have to service 10 clients a day to make a livable wage.
It’s been less than an hour since the conclusion of what was Jerrick’s first Annual Shareholder Meeting. Before publishing the following meeting transcript (which we cleaned up a bit for clarity purposes) and releasing the video recording you see above, I wanted to once again thank my Jerrick team, who worked so hard over the last couple of weeks. It was their collective effort that not only made our 2020 virtual shareholder meeting a success, but established a baseline and foundation for us to make the next one even better.
But, why is that laptop sitting on a chair?
I relate to Ms. Woodson. I read slowly too. I remember when the 6th book of Harry Potter came out, I had the book for a couple of days before one of my friends did. However, she finished several days before I did. I asked her how she did that and she responded that her teachers taught to read for context, so she didn't read every word in the sentence. That blew my mind. Not only did I read every word, but my imagination is also so active that I would pause in my reading to watch it play out. I am a big believer in reading the book before deciding to see a movie or tv adaptation. I choose not to see many adaptations, but on the other hand, I do decide to see them more often than not. The narrator's voice is at it's most authentic self when you read and your interpretation of that voice says a lot about their ability to submerge you into their story and your ability as a reader to create.
