Drawing attention

One of your key goals as a writer or any form of artist is to draw others to your trade or work. Consumers want something they will love reading or viewing, something that will capture their attention from a distance and make them not want to leave. As a writer, you want to ensure that your writing work has a hook, climax, and everything else that makes a book exciting to read. Suspense is another factor that draws readers in because they want to know what happens next. A painting can also be considered a craft. A painting may be interpreted in a variety of ways, and the colors of a painting can convey a variety of messages to the observer. Everything that goes into manufacturing a craft is crucial since it forms the craft and what it might potentially do in the market when sold.

Catering to the needs of people through fundraising

One of my favorite things to do is raise money for a good cause. I always consider that if someone is unable to provide for themselves due to any problems, whether physical or mental, I will step in and do my best to assist with their money or food requirements. When I was in college, I participated in various projects, including changing the odds, the Red Cross, the first Ghana sda Church community service, and many more. Each of these initiatives is designed to meet the requirements of the community. We gathered funds and gave food, clothing, drinks, hygiene necessities/products, as well as crafting cards for the elderly in nursing facilities, singing for the elderly, and simply spending quality time with individuals who felt abandoned. Some of the projects I was also a part of generated funds and distributed them to people in third-world nations who were struggling and in desperate need of assistance. We also conducted events where individuals gave books, clothes, and hygiene goods; the donated items were either flown to other countries where people were in need, or they were packaged in bags and distributed on the streets of New York.

Typing accuracy

Many occupations, especially office jobs, demand you to document files and other vital information on a laptop or computer. If you are sluggish at typing, you may not be able to complete the app ask that you are required to complete on a regular basis at the end of the day, week, or month. I grew up in Ghana, and we didn't start utilizing computers or laptops at such a young age in school until middle and high school. I recall my father purchasing a piece of software called Mavis Beacon, which guides and assists you in becoming a faster and better typer without the need of a keyboard. My typing speed and accuracy improved with time; it didn't happen overnight, but I was able to perfect it over time. When I went to the United States at the age of 12, my instructor assigned all students to do a computer assignment. I honestly felt I would be one of the last kids to finish the task since I didn't know the other students' typing accuracy. But, unexpectedly, I was the first to write all of my assignments, and the instructor was startled when I was typing without glancing at the keyboard, and I told her about the software my father had purchased to assist me improve my typing accuracy and speed.

Be creative when you write

Writing is absolutely one of my favorite things to do. Writing makes me unwind and also helps me to be creative in what I love doing. There’s different types of writing and as a writer you can either explore to see which area you are best at or stick to a specific area. My favorite type of writing is poems. I personally love when my poems rhyme all through out. Poems can be interpreted in different ways by different people from different countries. I can write a poem and it may mean something different to me compared to what someone else might view it as. I remember one time I wrote a poem and shared it with my friends just to see what they thought about it. Each of my friends interpreted the poem in a different way. One person said I was talking about love, the other person thought I was talking about hate towards someone, someone also thought I was talking about heartbreak. I was surprised at first but then I asked each person to explain why they interpreted the poems the way they did and I was shocked by their explanation. This gets to show you that writing comes in different ways and can be interpreted in different ways.

Website Pros and Cons

When you own a business, creating a website or webpage is usually an excellent idea. A website demonstrates what a company is all about or what the site has to offer customers. Having a website has advantages and disadvantages. The benefits of having your business highlighted on a page that people can use on a daily basis, as well as share with other family and friends, may assist with whatever they perceive the website helpful for. Cons include having another company page identically mimic your outline, having a virus on your website, or getting hacked. Hacking is one of the worst because it can take a long time to recover the site or, in some situations, you may not be able to recover it at all, which is devastating because you worked hard for it just for a random individual to come in and take it over.

Art work and sales

Art delivers diverse tales to different sorts of people in different parts of the world. An artwork may signify one thing to you, but it may mean something other to me. Selling an artwork might be a simple or difficult endeavor. Anyone can view an art piece and instantly fall in love with it and want to buy it. There may be times when no one notices your work.

Entrepreneurship & Business Leadership

I've been learning about business leadership and being an entrepreneur. I remember at a younger age my mom owned a supermarket in Ghana and I Neve took into consideration of the business aspect of the supermarket and how much time and work goes into it. Being a leader actually takes a lot. You need to have respect, integrity and the mindset of a leader. A business can collapse at any time; therefore you should know and pay attention to your income from your business. You should also make sure you don't go into any huge debt because that can break you business.
