What Should Be On A Flyer?

Let’s Talk About What Should Be Clear To Read on A Flyer (in my opinion)

1) The name of the Event

2) Day and Date

3) Time of the Event

4) Address (including City and State) and Location

5) Website or Social Media (not as important, but could help to gain followers)

6) Picture of __________

7) Feature Guest(s)

8) Who is putting on the Event…Presented By__________

Now other things can go on the Flyer, such as other graphics, logos and video capabilities. Keep in mind, when doing a Video Flyer, most social medias will not let a support person to save it and share it.

What I listed above, in my opinion is most important to be CLEAR/Visible and PRESENT on any FLYER.

You want people to SHARE, so make sure all the information is on the Flyer and make sure you provide your support people the ability to share. Be sure to put your Social Media settings on a Flyer post to PUBLIC so it can be shared, if it is set to FRIENDS only, the people you both have on your friends list are the ONLY ones that will see the post. You want as much visibility to grow your following and to create an interest for NEW people to attend or to take action.

Since I began my journey as Lady Flava, I wanted to learn how to make flyers and I tried, some better than others.

Over the years I have improved, I not the best best, but I am good. I have seen a drastic difference in my work from when I first moved to Vegas until now, 6 years later. I am still learning and growing in my skills.

Check out the flyers I have done for my favorite band in Vegas, BLOCK PARTY:


Check out my, “What’s Happening in Vegas” page here on LadyFlavaNews for Vegas Events and check out the styles of flyers. Some I was challenged to find the dates on.


If you care to give your feedback on any of the event flyers, (I do not know who made the flyers.)

Did I hit on the nail with what info should be clear on a Flyer? Let me know your thoughts.

Let’s Talk About Flyers

To Do A Fundraiser or Not

Do to continuous challenges at my job where the hospital census keeps dropping causing my hours to be cut from full time to part time. This has caused a financial stressor for me for several months. This is just one of the reasons that I decided it’s time to leave my job and return home to Seattle. Unfortunately, just as I thought I was back to full time hours, I have been cut back to part time just as I am preparing to return home… What to do?

One of my loved ones suggested that I do a GoFundMe account to see if I can get support from my family, friends, colleagues, co-works and social media followers. 🤔

I am not new to GoFundMe…but my fundraisers were centered around raising funds to support projects regarding creative soulz.

Although, my goal in returning home is to get away from the Vegas environment and get back to the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and find my motivation and direction for LadyFlavaNews. Vegas does not embrace original music and my passion is original authentic creativity. I miss the feeling of excitement in experiencing indie creators.

Let me also say this, I am a Christian and I know that I should have faith that the money will be available when I need to to secure my move back to Seattle the last week of May 2023. As long as I have full time hours, I can easily save the money to pay for the rental truck and car hitch plus gas. Unfortunately, the hospital is unable to predict the census to guarantee my full time hours.


I would love your feedback.

So, I do have a GoFundMe that I have not put out publicly. This is not easy for me to ask for financial help. 😔

But here is the link to my GoFundMe for my return to Seattle: https://gofund.me/ad73b1c2

If you feel moved to bless me, I would be extremely grateful. This will be the only place I will post this for now, until I am more comfortable to put it out beyond this platform.

Humbling sharing with personal and professional vulnerability. 🙏

It Bothers Me To Be Identified As Being White, When I’m Not

What is one question you hate to be asked? Explain.

Ethnic identity is defined as a sense of belonging based on one’s ancestry, cultural heritage, values, traditions, rituals, and often language and religion. Ethnic identity is thus composed of more or less connected facets that can vary across immigrant groups and across situations.
I’m Eurasian | Japanese & German

My Mommy is German and Daddy is Japanese

More and more I realized with how I was raised by my parents, i clearly understood that I was of mixed race. I was also raised that you are what your father’s ethnicity. The other unique thing about my life is that my parents bought our family home on the border of the black community of Seattle. The schools I went to were predominantly black and the same with my friends.

My father was very active in minority affairs and advocacy. I tell all of this because I was raised to be proud of my mixed heritage and to embrace and respect diversity. I did not have much of a problem being accepted in the community that I knew as home.

I realize now that I took my life for granted. I could maneuver life in Seattle without having to explain who I identify as.

Then in 2017, I moved to Las Vegas and I was in for a rude awakening. From many ethnic groups I was assumed to be white and even when I explained that I was mixed, it was like I never explained my ethnicity. Then the comments about looking white and I would respond by saying, “just because I look white to you, does not mean that is who I identify.” I even had to deal with that from an employer listing me as white on my finger printing document. Or a person in my life telling me that I act like a white girl.

Racism feels huge here in Vegas or maybe I should be fair that it is something I have experienced on many levels from the people I know or have encountered. Possibly life would have been different if I was introduced to a different circle of people personally and professionally.

Here people don’t hold their tongues about what they feel about another race. At times I feel because of what they visually identify me as, they think I think the same way as them.

So, the question that I don’t like being asked, is about my ethnicity.

Living in Vegas has taught me so much about people. When you visually see someone, you may not really know what their ethnicity is. I have met Spanish speaking people who either look white or black. Asians, can be missed labeled and they are not happy with being misidentified.

We live in an era where we need to more careful in how we identify someone. It has become challenging to what is appropriate and acceptable to say.

I know that many would not be able to relate to this post, but I sharing my truth… I am thinking through should I ease up on getting upset on how others identify my ethnicity. It’s something to think about, right? 🤔

I wonder how many people can relate to this blog…care to share your thoughts?

Crime in Seattle…

Be aware of your surroundings, avoid walking in dimly lit areas at night, stay vigilant while exploring, and try not to go out solo at night time. If you ever feel like you’ve wandered into an unsafe neighborhood, don’t be afraid to leave immediately. Also, make sure you let someone you trust know where you are.Feb 16, 2023

As I prepare to move back home to Seattle, my family has warned me that it is not the same since I left.


-Homelessness has grown

-Gun Violence is out of control

Even though I am so aware, today I spoke to someone I love dearly but hadn’t spoken to in a few years. I found out that he lost one of his brothers to a senseless shooting at a bar…The shooter who had a history of menacing bars from south Seattle to Renton only got 7 years for this murder of someone I knew from a child.

He told me about the reports on the news daily of violent crimes. I asked if in his opinion if it’s gang related and he felt it’s not. My god-sister agrees with him. This is so disheartening to realize this about my hometown. I think about the beauty of Seattle and how Seattle is very progressive in business and mentality. Now I have to safety plan how to maneuver my city.

I told him I still want to come home, I want to be with all my loved ones including him. This just showed me that I should have done a better job in staying in touch.

Well, I’m still moving home. I know that I need to be aware of my surroundings at all times. I May look into ways to learn how to protect myself if something was to come up.

Where do you live and what is the crime like? Do you feel safe where you live? Let’s talk about it.

Can the Arts and Entertainment Communities help bring awareness and resolution to our neighborhoods?

I’m praying for everyone that lives in a region that has the concern of high crime statistics.

Father God watch over your children and heal the souls of those creating the madness. There is so much turmoil, hardships, depression and mental illness that is going unaddressed. I ask that you bring healing to all people across the world. We should not have to live in fear.

🙏 Amen 🙏

Sharing my heartfelt concerns for my hometown, Seattle, WA.

My Middle Name is Elizabeth

My Mother, Dorothy Elizabeth

What is your middle name? Does it carry any special meaning/significance?

Elizabeth is clearly a family name…

My mother’s mother’s name was Elizabeth

My mother is Dorothy Elizabeth

My name is Susan Elizabeth

My oldest daughter is Mariko Cheree Elizabeth

And my granddaughter is Kimora Elizabeth

I know in the Bible Elizabeth was John The Baptist’s mother.

The Hebrew meaning is, God Is My Oath.

I think about many names nowadays are made up with different spellings and no real significance. I love being creative but I also appreciate names with meaning and purpose.

Then there are the names that artists go by, like myself as Lady Flava, but that is a topic for another blog.

A&E | Your Budget and Records

I created this 2022 but it will always remain relevant.

Keep track of what you revenue intake is and where is coming from and where you spend money. I believe many are unaware of what they are paying out verses what they are bringing in when it comes to their craft.

Keep records by using a simple receipt book. As a professional and business, record are so imperative.

Know You Should Have A Budget … Find A Way To Create A #Budget To #WorkFrom … #ThRealityIs … MANY THINGS TAKES MONEY TO FURTHER THE PROGRESS … Otherwise, You Might Look Like You’re Doing Something when in Reality You’re Standing Still 🤔 … #StartSavingMoney To #BuildYourDream

More and more I realize that many creatives do not have a financial budget set aside to grow their professional exposure. Yet they will spend money on other things. Many might feel that they are leveling up with new outfits and accessories. Yet, their following and potential customers are not expanding.

I would take something simple and perfect it as you build a income and reinvest in your craft to slower level up.

Professionals need to have a budget to work from to pay out to service providers, equipment, tools needed for your craft, promotions and marketing and more.

Prioritize where you spend money when it comes to growing your craft or business.

What Would Be The First Thing I Would Write About Myself ?

You’re writing your autobiography. What’s your opening sentence?

As a little Japanese German Girl who was raised in the Black community of Seattle, the daughter of a Japanese Baptist Minister and community advocate/activist…it comes natural to establish my approach to supporting creative soulz.

This was a challenge to figure what I would say in an opening sentence…it now feels there could be so many different directions I could start my story.

I sentence with few words, you see I turned my 1 sentence into a paragraph 😱 😄

What would your Opening Sentence say of your Autobiography? Think about it and maybe consider writing your story for you family and possibly beyond.

Accepting Another Blogging Challenge

I Like Being My Own Boss (how about you) 😊

Throughout my life my daddy told me that I don’t like working for other people. He was and is so right. He would tell me that I would get frustrated in how a supervisor would run the team or unfair or unprofessional people would be. I would identify more effective approaches to get the needed out come. I tend to run supervisors wrong, yet my coworkers or staff valued me.

I have run into this again in Vegas, and this maybe the worst that I have experienced. Very unprofessional with a twist of racism thrown in there and favoritism. So, I’m challenged at my age of 60+…needing to still work.

I will find and approach my job search differently upon my return to Seattle. I will explore with my children multiple streams of income and creating a home based business. I know I need to be smart at my age to gain financial freedom and control of my world through doing my own thing

I will be returning to being an actual business through LadyFlavaNews and charging for my services. Prior to moving to Vegas, I made Money as an creative consultant, creating promotional tools along with creating artist’s packages.

I have had people approached me once again to help them do their project, not wanting to pay or approach me with a win win situation. I Will No longer allow myself to get pulled to be apart of someone else’s team.

How do you feel about working for someone else? I would engage you to focus on what to enjoy doing and master that to the point to can create a steady into.

What are you good at?

Explore, get creative on how to make money from your skills or talents.

Become an entrepreneur…it could start with just one thing and grow from there
