VERSATILE IMAGE

ver·sa·tile im·age

verb

ADAPT visually

Often times we see an issue but overlook it because it's normal to the eye; it's sad, but [insert word] has become normal. For incense, in Florida on October 17, 2016, state officials announced minimum wage going up a whole 0.05 cents. As stated in the article on ABC News, Florida law requires the state to annually calculated the rate based on increases in the federal Consumer Price Index.  I suppose if they had classes to teach us how to read, calculate and understand that report, most middle-class families would think completely different. Trading Economic breaks down the statics on the current unemployment rate increasing by 5 percentage in September 2016. As time progresses, you, your family and friends may become one of those 7.9 million people who is out of a job. Our communities have become immune to devastating financial trends in America. Versatile Image is on a mission to adapt to the current conditions by changing what people visually see!

Founder:

Michelda George, a 30-year-old woman who is a South Florida native with Haitian roots. Her parents migrated from Haiti to America in 1979 to provide an opportunity to achieve the "American Dream". Back in 2009, she finally got the piece of the American pie, something she could pass on to her children. Michelda's family purchased a grocery store and she quit her comfy position to manage "Sunrise Market" for 3 years. From that experience, she learned a tremendous amount of knowledge from her failures. Michelda learned how the lack of financial education is the primary reason small businesses failed within 3-5 years. Fast forward 2 years, Michelda is an undercover entrepreneur with a creative sixth sense hiding out in Corporate America working for the largest MLS in the state of Florida. In her current position, she trains and develops the top employees in her department. In addition to her full-time job, she is also a college student at Brigham Young University majoring in Business & Finance. Now as a District Leader, Michelda has acquired the necessary licenses to educate people on how to achieve & preserve the American dream.

It's not about pushing someone to be success. It's pushing them to see if they really want it..jpg
