People say to me what an interesting career I have. I say it’s not a career, it’s just the way I choose to live my life and for some reason I get paid some money as I live life. To think, I just retired this year after 40 years of never having a job.
So now, the new Ziemer Design Creations is not a business, it is a think tank of creativity that requires funds to sustain itself.
My primary goal with Ziemer Design Creations is to stay active by teaching ( as I play ) while inspiring others to go take on this kind of lifestyle while they get compensated to forge ahead in life.
I am especially interested in helping young adults that are underdogs. This is going to be my main long term goal!
Currently, I am teaching John, 25 years old. John comes from a welfare single mom family structure. He is Hispanic and has had brushes with the law and some drugs. To ad to his deficit, John is deaf. He is the poster child slated for social fail.
John has been with me 6 months now. I have taught him skills that make him very desirable in any job market requiring these special skills…working for zoos, amusement parks, contractors…the list goes on.
In my teaching, John is learning social skills such as job and home site etiquette, maintaining good credit and simple financial principles, properly getting his contractors license, good business management skills, and the do’s and don’ts of business 101.
John, armed with all skills,tools and rock creations apparatus and his new found business and skill savvy will be set and ready to create a good future for himself.
As Ziemer Design Creations forges ahead, this is the most important aspect of Ziemer Design Creations!
In a organically formed structure of giving back to the community, it is my goal this be the sustainable format of Ziemer Design Creations. For lack of better description, Ziemer Design Creations will become a non profit foundation.
With that said, Ziemer Design Creations 5 products will be the financial sustainability until community donations of many sorts fall into place as well. This will take time, so be it!
So, in a nutshell, Ziemer Design Creations is a non profit organization ( non profit status and legal documents in the future).
Yes, it has retail customers for the purpose of financially supporting the goal of the foundation, helping challenged young adults.
As all goes well in the long term goal, my vision is for this passing it forward to disadvantaged youngsters expands to other companies piggy backing off Ziemer Design Creations example.
I believe this venture is a no fail vision. As Ziemer Design Creations gains momentum, this is where I plan to play my A List celebrity client card. Many of them will back me. Kenny Logins is a fine example. I did his house as he created the Unity Shop and Christmas drive for the poor. I helped Kenny create Unity. Kenny is one of many I can draw from in terms of public support to fan community awareness and support.
