Homemade Hot Air Balloons for our Artwork of The Week

And the artwork of the week award goes to…

Me.

The artwork of the week has been made with special thanks to our new stencil! As you can see below, it has a hot air balloon, jet, helicopter, excavator, bus, and airplane.

We pulled a nice fresh slice of white paper together with some colored pencils, that included the colors yellow, green, pink, purple, blue, and dark red.

One side was mainstream hot air balloons with a jazzy feat of curly colors.

The other side was a little more ambitious and funky, with some blue and white clouds in the background as they fly in the sky.

Here’s the full picture!

What art did you create this week?

5 Reasons Why Recruiters Suck

Times are tough.

Over 40 million people are unemployed in America, and it seems like it’s only going to get worse through 2021.

Reality is that there are still jobs available AND many businesses are in investment mode, ready to hire their next superstar.

The problem? 

Their recruiters suck.

Whether it be HR or a third party company, they don’t understand the service.

How can you understand what the company TRULY needs when you don’t understand the ecosystem?

Meanwhile they fake it till they make it, and never quite get the puzzle right.

To add, it seems like they care more about their commission than they care about their clients.

Heck, some founders don’t even know what the company needs but they know they need help.

Here are reasons why recruiters suck.

1. They only have their own best interest in mind.

You are just another number in their sales playbook. The more calls they get the better they look within their company.

2. You are treated like a revolving door.

They push you around, make empty promises, lie, cheat, beg, borrow and steal from you AND their clients.

The recruiting company wants revolving business, so they can continue to collect commission checks from them.

So they proceed to bring on short term hires that are okay enough, but there is always the idea that they can swap out and do better.

Many recruiters have found the magic formula. Recruit the world’s okay-est hire, collect the 3 month commission, and then when it doesn’t work out, bring in the world’s second latest hire and so on.

3. Great call, then they ghost.

The classic bait and switch. Guess the call wasn’t so great homie.

They call you, you give it your all, they never call you back.

The classic ghost.

4. They are so bad, Reddit is on the case.

The global troll train on Reddit is ready, willing, and able to bash all recruiters to infinity and beyond. Unleash the fury here and now!

5. They don’t care what your pay was before, sorry sucker.

You get what you get, and you don’t get upset? WTF.

They don’t do the low, medium, high budget, they do it all or nothing.

This cuts off great talent from even arriving at your doorstep.

Spooky Second Fall Moon in October – The Halloween Hunter’s Moon

If only Vincent Price were alive now to announce the upcoming Hunter’s Moon on Halloween, we’d be even more scared then we are now! No where to run now, except 6 feet under ground.

Note for those that do not know Vincent Price, he’s an actor and a horror genius. Thrilling youtube clip of him reading Thriller, you’ll love it here.

The Hunters Moon gets its name from Native American tribes that had to hunt for game before the cold winter months. Known as the Sanguine Moon, Blood Moon, Travel Moon, or the Dying Grass Moon too, it signifies prepping bounty before hibernation to survive.

This magical moon is coming for all of us this October and we are ready for change. It will produce a massive harvest of vegetables and fruits that will be used throughout the rest of winter.

Universe Today has a great video on it too here.

Pumpkins are harvested and picked in fall, and there are many recipes out there to help you enjoy this bright, perky food.

Pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds, pumpkin soup, and pumpkin salad are popular to cook this fall!

The object of this moon is to remind all to gather meat before the long winter to prevent starvation and self preservation.

Is it extra spooky that it falls on Halloween night? The scariest night of the year?

Hell’s yes!

Many horror film fans make Halloween their Christmad by binge watching the world’s best horror movies.

My personal favorite scary movies are Candyman, Night of the Living Dead, Halloween 2, Ghostbusters 2, Scary Movie, What Lies Beneath, and Friday the 13th.

The cherry on top is that Halloween falls on a Saturday, so there is extra time for mayhem and murder throughout your town.

Stay safe spooksters and tricksters, you never know what’s lurking in the shadows.

Rage Against the Machine + Homeschooling 2020

It is just me or is anyone else truly, madly, and deeply disappointed with homeschooling in ANY school? My kids happen to go to a 10 out of 10 pubic school in Los Angeles, and it’s awful still.

I’ve run into parents that are in private schools as well, with high tuition price points. They seem to feel the same way.

I think this is especially so for kids below the age of 10.

The teachers are not engaging the children proactively.

The teachers are not actually teaching, more they are reciting a dissertation where there is not a give and take conversation.

The teachers are not giving personal attention, especially to those who need it.

The teachers are asking questions randomly to others without keeping the kids attention, calling on them, and then expecting them to know the answer when they lost their attention without the first 20 minutes they were talking or showing a non sense video.

This is really the first time we have been able to get a glimpse of what is going on in the classroom, and it is a HUGE disappointment.

Our taxes and millions of government dollars funnel into the system, we are paying teachers and administrators well, and it feels like they are not doing their jobs.

If the clients or kids are not learning, shouldn’t that be their job? To teach children and make sure they comprehend? To make sure that where they are lacking, they work with them on their faults?

Some kids will always be better or worse at school, and I get that. But are we grading on progress that the parents are making or are we grading based on the kids comprehension? Or are we grading based on the teachers wishful thinking?

I know it’s a tough year for EVERYONE, those with and without jobs. Those that have lost businesses, those that have lost loved ones to COVID, those that have had their whole schedule reworked.

I am trying to embrace change and move with the tides, but I feel like the overarching educational system our government has created for us is not working, and may never have.

Even transitioning from school to university, or school into the real world, I just don’t think the curriculum preps us for it all.

I don’t want to point fingers, and I am so grateful for teachers and the profession as a whole. I have had many wonderful teachers in work and school that I am forever grateful for the knowledge and blessings.

Just trying to see if everyone else feels this way, and if so, how can we trigger change?

I try to get involved in the school, but the entire curriculum just seems WAY off.

Anyhow, there is my Rage Against the Machine chat. Not to light any additional fires with the topic here, but I am struggling with homeschool and work and thought others in my network may be as well.

Let me know in the comments below.

How to Quickly Identify False Faux Narratives + Contain A Fear Fire

Abused individuals tend to hold a bag of intimidated fear close to home.  The abuse victim is rightful to their feelings of fear, but it is imperative to distinguish what is a real threat, how is the impending doom helping you, and what is not an immediate threat.

These types of fears are quick to spread like wildfire and have a negative effect on their surroundings, whether it be at the office, at home, or out and about in life.

Fear is also a control tactic to create a hierarchy of authority and false sense of importance to feed your ego and defend yourself. Most times the threat is over thought and not an immediate problem, however fear can drive poor and desperate decision making in time of need.

This false faux frame of mind will cloud your judgement.  It then makes you in turn, and sometimes subconsciously, inflict fear upon others.  This is dubbed the fear wildfires and can only be extinguished through deep thought, discovery, and awareness that is hard to understand where it stems from.

Most times it comes from learned historical behaviors and harsh, oppressive environments that can be hard to dial into when oppressed for longer lengths of time.

What is the cure and how can we save ourselves?

The first step is the awareness. You have become aware that fear is a constant in your life and you surrender that fear and understand that it is not doing any good for you when you are in no actual immediate harm.

Second, it’s important to do the hard work fully and effectively. This would mean understanding what you are scared of and why you are scared of it. This could be through therapy techniques like EMDR, group trauma meetings like ACOA or AA, or running through your frame of mind and realizing your triggers.

To expand, there is a major source of healing right now that needs to be done both physically and emotionally with the current state of world and life stress. Many are overwhelmed to the point where they are unable to make their first move, being scared of the fear that has been imposed on them from media, health, family and friends.

In this case it is first important to isolate the fear. Ask yourself, where is this coming from? If the triggers were through social media, calls, television, etc, you need to start isolating and identifying the triggers carefully. When you understand and vet your emotions as your are driven towards fear you need to catch and release the emotion by redirecting the fear by morphing it into the next thought. All thoughts and feelings are temporary if you allow them to be.

Healthy minds promote healthy living, and it’s important to stop faux fear at its tracks, understand why you are thinking in this frame of reference, don’t let it incapacitate and takeover you fully, and gracefully move on to the next best productive thought that can help your survival.

As we know, fear is only productive when it prevents a serious accident and it best used when it is actively pulling you out of danger, and not pulling you out of your next best moment.

See the best in yourself, understand those people and outlets that do in fact have your best interest in mind, and make sure that you simultaneously honor your thoughts and yourself.

Hope this helps you, and have a great week! 🦁

4. AnimeCon

In Downtown Los Angeles, this show hosts all of the anime comics, movies and shows that are in progress and ready to roll out. I am super excited about Netflix’s momentum with the anime vertical. Really cool things happening right now.

5. E3

8 Bucket List Travel Spots 2020

With COVID making it difficult to travel, we have improvised and have pursued local trips to support local hotels and restaurants that have to go options.

After this year, we still have a ton of places we’d like to travel.

Here’s our list

1. Scotland

The motherland, where my grandmother and grandfather were born.

2. France

Haven’t done Paris or the wine country and would like to check out both.

3. Italy

The other motherland, my other grandfather was born in Capri and come to the US in the early 1900’s.

4. Virgin Islands

Any one will do at this point.

Where Vasco de Gama sailed to, and where I am thinking about sailing to today.

In need of some spicy noodles, stat.

I’ve never felt so free, Song of Music celebratory in years! I mainly stick to Instagram @leverageambition, and don’t need any unnecessary social platforms that do not serve my greater good.

9. Lost 12 Pounds

8. Embraced my inner Entrepreneur

7. Getting serious about waking up early

Getting up no later than 8am, ‘because you know – you snooze, you lose.
