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!

Fly, fly, butterfly…

While I keep myself anchored in the now, I prepare myself to let them go. As soon as they’re ready. But this is another aspect. How do we know when they are ready?

Once we give birth, we see kids as a trophy. A sign of our accomplishment. And we struggle to save them from the bad and the unconventional.

But why is it that we do that? Is it because we’re trying to guide them on the right track? Whose right track? Theirs? Or pushing them to follow a pattern? Or are we trying to pursue them to follow a path we, ourselves, were too afraid of taking or did not succeed on?

Releasing butterflies

These are questions I always ask myself, in the process of raising them. Just see it like this… Once they grow up, are they really only ours? Or should we let them fly and understand that they belong to themselves, first, and to the vast world as well?

So instead of making them follow what society wants, why can’t we guide them to see and go for what THEY want?

Yes, is a hard task. But we can do it if we want to. This will bring them closer to us (paradoxically, right?). Because they will understand how much we trust them and how much we want them to follow their own dreams. And see the freedom we provide, instead of keeping them glued to our lives.

I hear the “they’re too young for this” formula so often! But let me burst your bubble: that’s wrong! The sooner you leave choice to their hands, the sooner they learn how to handle it and take charge of consequences. Plus, remember that life is no pink unicorn …😉 (This way of raising my kids may be subject of controversy, but this is solely my view about teaching them how to use their brains.)

Going even further, this is what I do…
While I keep myself anchored in the now, I prepare myself to let them go. As soon as they’re ready. But this is another aspect. How do we know when they are ready? We don’t. They do

So, I’ll grant them the space they need and make sure their wings spread, in a continuous effort of soaring, as unconventionally as they may feel.

In the same time, I hope I’ll be capable of providing good advice (we never know what’s the best, afterall) and support their genuineness.

Becoming aware of the fact that we will never be able to save them from deceit or prevent from making mistakes may adjust a bit our perspective over their future and the term “liberty”.

Short example: my kids want spinners, yet something holds me back from granting this wish. My explanation to them (I always make sure I explain why) wasI don’t agree or approve you using them, as they damage this and that. If you want using it to affect this and that, I’ll be ok with buying you one“. Their answer? “No

So, I go like this:

For our kids’ sake, we should educate ourselves first. To let them be. Offer them the information they need to find themselves and, eventually, let them fly…

Dreams

    Dreams are so damn hard to handle sometimes… You just watch and see nothing at all… You walk and don’t feel the steps you take… You breathe, but there’s no air… Everything is just heavy… Damn, is heavy! All you think about is that dream…

And you can’t (or won’t) wake up. Everything surrounding you is trying to send you signals you need to open your eyes and get anchored in reality. But you choose to go even deeper into your own little world. It’s warm in there. You could spend your entire life there. Why bother facing hurt, when you can surrender to your passion? That passion makes you happy, after all. In what way? For how long? Could be eternally, if that’s your choice. I know, it’s all a matter of choice. Said it before and I stand up for it. But I also support chasing your dreams you’re pointed to by your passion.

Chasing… Burdensome process… But you build as you chase. You place a stone with each step. Is a creation process, yes. And, if you remember, “The creation process is incredible”. Keeps the distance you need away from people, provides you that space you so eagerly aim for.

So, dream big and chase till the end. Till you have it all built up. Or completely crashed. If one dream crashes and can’t be restored,   rise up and find another. NEVER give up! Be friends with your desires, passionately create a dream around them, chase and feel free! Find out how much truth is there in the saying: “If you can dream it, you can DO it!”… Choose you’re most comfortable shoes, add a pinch of COURAGE and GO!

Love,

A.

Chances and freedom

    How many chances can a human being get? How many times does one need to have the same stuff explained? How many signals do people need to be sent, in order to get a glimpse over an obvious matter?

At some point, all these become useless. Regardless of how many of-whatever-you-need you get, it will never be enough if your eye lashes remain glued and your mind is too stubborn to unblock itself. When a true hearted person explains, you need to listen. When this person advises and draws warnings, open your ears carefully and let the waves of their voice lead the words to the lobes of your brain. Open up that brain and receive the information. Or just the vibe.

Is there the need of a reason for all this? Well… There may come a day when you will feel sorry for not listening; for not closely watching and catching the signals; for not providing your support when needed; for not being warm and tender enough; for every wasted tear… You may feel the need to get lost but, guess what, you can’t!

There’s a saying: “You don’t miss the water till the well runs dry”. And the well doesn’t get dry over night… It takes a long time and lots of pointless happenings to turn each drop into a piece of air. Water can be seen and felt, but once turned into air, it’s gone and you’ll never trace it again. Then why not drink it while you can hold it in the palm of your hand?

We all know that pulling the roots of a flower off the ground leads to certain slow death. Same goes for continuous stumps over one’s heart. One may believe chances are limitless. Wrong! There’s a point where every lost effort becomes a lost battle. The soul gets petrified, the look in that person’s eyes becomes as dark as a night with no moon and their words cut deeper than the sharpest sword a samurai would use. Continuously. One after another… With each moment passing by.

At first, there’s hate-like hurt, wish for avange and will to disappear. Then, there’s the struggle for making things “right” again, analysing situations and facts one by one to the limit of getting exhausted. Then… An awesome thing happens… Realizing… What? That things can and will get better in time, if you wish for it bad enough. And you wake up! You see everything flashing before your eyes, you understand the lessons you had to learn, you see the person you’ve become during this painful process and you surrender… To that amazing feeling of… FREEDOM and acceptance of what’s to come.

Once you’ve reached the bottom, it’s time to start rising. You start trusting yourself, start learning again, start seeing all the beauties arround you as you walk by, start a new life. You, literally, reborn. You feel that unknown strength wrapping your feet and arms, soul and mind! What’s next? Your first understanding of self worth. Your eyes get the sharp view of a tiger and your heart becomes as fearless as a lion’s. You surrender to the beauty of sun, to all colors nature has to offer, to each rain drop falling on your skin, to your OWN SELF! You loose hatred and become distant to things that used to sting your feelings.

“Freedom” cannot express it enough… There’s no barrier in your new mind, nothing can tear you down this time. Nothing and NOBODY! You lead your way. If anyone wishes to follow, they’re welcome. But people will get scared of your out-of-the-box view. And you’re too brave too wait. They can reach out to your hand if they want to join. You will accept their companionship. Freely, selflessly, but truly and carefully! Who is meant to walk alongside will step in with you!

Walk with that stardust in your eyes, wear that genuine joy in your heart and carry only one piece of luggage: HAPPYNESS!

Enjoy your ride!

Love,

A.
