The government is about to change the way it accounts for the economic value of music and movies.
I'm bringing $3,500000 of creative capital, blood sweat and tears and expertise to the Fashiontech Creative Evolution 3.0 table and now finally new rules will count it as an "investment" part of the GDP!
Again I'm ahead of the curve!
I've always asked the creatives I work with to value their creative collateral! So what does that mean... well at $50 an hour that's $2,800,000 - $3,500000 (frankly my expertise is worth no less than $100 an hour but I'll be humble LOL); Even at $30 an Hour that's an investment of $1,680000 to $2100000!
So how did I come to those numbers
I've been exploring designing developing the program since 2003 averaging 16-20 hrs for an average of 350 days literally! 56000 -70000 hrs of creative capital, blood sweat and tears and now finally new rules will count it as an "investment" part of the GDP! Reading, resarching, brainstorming, testing refining, brainstorming day dreaming...
I came to this with By the time I started in 2003 I had 10 years experience in independent design, At 37 20 years selling my designs, A strong and eclectic background training, apprenticeship and experience in various creative skills, from cake decorating to textile design, Fashion , Accessory & leather design, Cobol & basic programming, retail and custom services. I even had creative advocacy experience lobied to change local laws, laid out a creative training program and run stores and even plannned an executed an international trade show... That's worth at least $50 an hour!
"EXPERTS" finally realize they've been getting the GDP numbers wrong..,. That the time we sped researching and exploring or the time creatives spend daydreaming SHOULD Be counted... No they have not yet added the HOURS we spend on social Media... that may come in 10 to 20 years!
So what does it mean.. I do not bat an eye at saying I'm bringing $ 3 and 1/2 mill to the table with confidence. i know this program works, my concern now is ensuring that that investment does not die when I do... I'm focused on legacy, that it is is passed on to a new generation, It means that what I know needs to be placed into formats that makes it available in formats,so others can grow and expand on it! That I ensure it benefits the wider community and future generations! www.bonniesandy.com
