7 padlocks

#ProseTime #AWSeries

Monday morning brings you a short piece of a new #creativewriting (prose) I’m working on, called #7padlocks.

Sitting on the edge of the bed, she was lost. Her eyes were looking outside of the window, while her thoughts were freely wandering up into the skies and beyond.

If someone would have seen her from afar, they would say she was the calmest woman on earth. Yet, if a dive into her brain occured, the toughest of storms would have be unleashed.

As the sun set, after long hours of gazing at the moving clouds so did her sight. She turned her sad eyes to the floor. But when she did, she froze! Everything going on in her mind took a different turn, on an exponentially scaled dimension. She was petrified! She couldn’t believe her eyes at witnessing what was happening within the walls of her crystal-clear home. That was one of the most unacceptable things to notice ! In HER home!

Delusion was shortly replaced by that disgrace accompanied by fear. She couldn’t decide which of the two was greater. For a moment, she couldn’t move a muscle and she just watched IT moving around, so grotesquely close to her foot.

As she was gathering her strength to make a move, the *thing* voiced:

10 reasons why you should use WorkApp

For a while now (almost a year), I’ve been promoting AND using this new-edge platform.

Why am I doing it?

Because of a few key aspects that drew my attention to it. And, again, if you follow my activity, you already know by now that I NEVER promote things I don’t believe in or something that doesn’t resonate with me, from a values’ standpoint.

So, here you go, served with 10 reasons why you should use WorkApp, from a user’s perspective:

1. Equity & Equality

You cannot pay to rank at the top of the search results in WorkApp. Unlike any other platform that you can use to promote your services, WorkApp does not allow users to pay for coming in front of others. Instead, you are encouraged to follow your business’s activity every day and make it visible by using the “Boost listing” button. On the other hand, industry champions like Harley Davidson and a worker in a flower or barber shop, or even a day labourer, have equal chances to get found.

2. Personal Data Integrity

The guys who are behind this project thoroughly considered NOT SHARING your personal data with third parties.

Why?

Simply because it’s against their values. They put confidentiality and privacy at high stake!

3. Mission

WorkApp’s mission is to give every worker, entrepreneur or established business a chance to put their services out there, without paying any commission and with no hidden fees for premium features, regardless of their financial turnover.

Billboards are the ace in their sleeve.

4. Vision

Giving back to society is what drives all this mission.

Their vision revolves around the concept of kindness and compassion for every living creature, and this expands into treating each other equally and respectfully and into giving everyone a chance to speak.

5. Community

As per the aforementioned point, they considered making this easy for people to come together. As such, under the community feature, you can find endeavors which promote other people. For instance, podcasts, which are a way of learning from what people from different corners of the world have experienced.

6. Visibility

In order to make sure your wish and even targeted audience is in the right place, WorkApp offers 2 options of exposure: Global or local.

If you select the local option, your business gets visible only in the country you select.

On the flip side, the global option offers you a chance to tell the entire world what you, as an entrepreneur, artist, etc. can do or what your business is up to.

7. Localization

As you might have already figured out, all this is possible thanks to GPS localization. All you need to do is insert your exact location, spread the word about your listing and let others easily find you.

8. Teamwork

Nothing can be done without teamwork. However, the success of this project relies on the integrity and passion of the dedicated team and partners working on it.

9. Direct contact

If you check any listing on WorkApp (for any of these categories: business, jobs, workers, classifieds, real-estate, auto, community, events, wanted or people) you will find all available options to get in touch. That can mean email, phone or direct message via the platform. Direct messages also have voice message feature incorporated. 😉

10. Feedback

Most apps develop based on feedback and user testing. The difference with this project is that they will not buy your feedback, but they wish for genuine, objective feedback from people who use WorkApp on a daily basis. Also, every time you make an inquiry about a business or person, you will be offered to fill in a survey about your interaction with the business representative or the freelancer / entrepreneur who made the listing.

So, does all this align with your values?

 

If you still need more information about this app, besides the previously exposed 10 reasons why you should use WorkApp, here are 3 bonus points:

11. If you are a job-seeker, you can upload your CV there, along with what’s mentioned to the next point.

12. Each listing allows you to place a 5 mins presentation video of your business, plus an unlimited number of pictures to showcase why prospects should pick you as a service provider or manufacturer.

13. Once you set your digital shop there, you have the option of inserting your direct payment gateway, making it easy for everyone.

As a conclusion to all of the above, remember that all of this is FREE and is dedicated to YOU, as a user, to serve YOUR purpose and to help YOU get visible.

Now, all you need to do is to jump on the platform, start using it and share it with all your contacts, so that they can also benefit from this amazing, cutting-edge project. You can download the app here or visit their website https://Workapp.world.

Make your listings, boost them every day and allow yourself to become a star, next to top industry players!

The newborn will [Poem]

Beauty of hearts
Lies in the parts
That make us laugh
And bring us March.

Season of blooming,
Season of choosing
What side to feed,
New plants to seed.

All trees turn green,
Green grass uplifts,
All leaves embrace
A nature’s dance,

Animals awake.
Humans should take
All these examples
And turn to samples

For new endeavors
To planet’s favors,
For new, kind trends
Where One reflects…

The One is you,
The One is me,
The One is us,
The One is FREE!

One is compassion,
Who allows passion
Be found in all
And take a turn

To seek new vibe,
And build one tribe
With the same blood,
With no compound!

Colors won’t fade,
Rather retake
What needs to be
A newborn will.

Let us all nurture,
The will not torture,
Let’s chase intention
And raise attention!

Let us hold hands
And change the trends,
Let’s come as ONE
And bring the sun!

New business platform going VIRAL!

Here’s a video I shot for LinkedIn, in which I explain why your time is now (you can watch the short video below).

In a nutshell, you will learn about an app that offers you the FREE chance to get worldwide exposure, with no commissions, fees or whatsoever. The concept behind it is to offer people equality and equity, when it comes to their exposure. There are no subscription plans or any premium features hidden for some money. It’s all FREE. And you cannot buy the first place. But you can earn it!

Just picture the fact that you, as a blogger, can make a listing on this platform and get real chances of increasing your worldwide readership, without paying a cent for marketing it.

How cool is that?

Additionally, you get tons of chances to get discovered by a company or an individual who needs your writing skills AND get paid for it.

Worth a try?

When you create an account with WorkApp and make your listings, make sure you look me up by name (Andrada Anitei), so that we can interact outside WordPress. I can help you with setting it up or with amazing tips, as I am also participating in the user testing activities. 😉

So take 1.5 mins of your time and check the video above.

You can download the app here.

See you soon, on this revolutionary platform !

Kindred souls [Poem]

Instant connections,
Powerful visions,
Deep conversations
And open observations…

That’s what happens
When heaven calls
Old souls together
To break the walls

Of old beliefs.
A higher purpose
To be instilled
And old wounds healed.

These souls desire
Collaboration,
They all aspire
To build One Nation

That will bring change
And love all kind
Of human shape
With open mind!

When they unite
The world rejoices,
When they take action
Blessing is pouring

Upon new souls,
That need to learn
To open hearts
When fire burns.

Fire of passion,
Fire of light,
Which brings compassion
And walls collide.

The walls of hatred
Which destroy worlds,
The walls of envy
Which people hurt.

Why should we kill
When we can love
And climb the hill
To worlds above?

To worlds that carry
Magic and hope,
To worlds that bury
History’s glove.

A glove that’s dirty
Of so much blood…
Rather be steady
And raise the flag

Of just One Nation
That only cares
About redemption
And true love shares!

Let us unite!
And have one voice,
All of the countries
And bring the choice

Of what these souls
Dreamed for so long
And let the kindness
Become so strong.

We will see then
Beauty prevailing,
We will build then
A world that’s healing.

Wouldn’t you rather
Embrace the impact
And scale the world,
Leaving it intact?

Intact of murder,
Intact of chaos,
But rather clean,
With rising ethos?

The happy sparrow [Poem]

You smile and dance,
You jump around,
You take a chance
With every round

To learn new things.
You have no fear,
You walk the strings
Of life with cheer.

I pray to God
To keep you healthy,
Make the world proud
When you are ready

To come to blossom
And serve your wisdom,
You won’t be common,
You’re meant for freedom!

Up in the sky
Fly, happy sparrow!
Avoid the minds
That are too narrow!

Your smile is priceless!
Your joy must last!
Dance for the wounded,
Make your name cast

Into the stone
Of happy days,
Into the rainbow
Shown by the brave.

Adopt the madness
Of high creation,
You’re meant for greatness,
Accept ovation!

Don’t be ashamed
Of your own brain,
Rather be named
By kindness’s grain!

Help kingdoms rise
Build new alliance,
Defend their rights
Chase out defiance.

You are enough!
You carry worth!
Show them your laugh
And change the Earth !
