My intention when I created Zinny Factor was to provide a place where I could write about several challenges that workers may encounter. I always felt lost as a young millennial in the workforce and at some point just wanted to write out my thoughts and how I had come to solve certain issues.
I assumed it was a challenge that many people encounter and I wanted to address it, encourage others to never give up on their goals, while also creating a relaxing environment. Kindly note that almost every information shared on this blog is as a result of my personal experience or opinion on each topic.
I’ll now briefly explain the categories you’ll find on this blog and what to expect.
The employers tab is regularly updated with posts that provide advise to employers of different industries. My sole purpose is directed towards small or mid-sized businesses to help you manage your employees and organization. No matter the business you operate and the size of your staff, I believe that you stand to benefit from this category.
The blog posts in the employer category are mainly addressed to people in leadership positions within any organization. This includes business owners/ entrepreneurs, executive officers, managers, supervisors, and senior level staff in your organization. Please ensure to look out for more helpful topics to improve your organization.
2. NEW WORKER
There is also the new worker category that addresses issues new workers may encounter in the workplace. For a long time, I felt like the newbie in the workplace, the youngest one. And it didn’t help that I had a fairly tiny voice so I was seen as ‘so young’.
I believe that millennials/ generally recent graduates are constantly entering the workforce with different perceptions of what to expect. I, therefore, have made it a point of duty to talk to this very important class of workers to address certain issues I might have encountered in the past.
This section provides various topics ranging from how to be happy, productive, and how to enjoy your work or job (ultimately leading to career growth). Here, I blog on all issues that may arise at work. I occasionally discuss recent legislation or news as it affects the workplace and I provide practical solutions.
Let’s be brutally honest, we have all come to that point in our lives where we just want to give up on this thing called work-life. I have to! But more than that, I want to share with you how I’ve managed to pull through.
I believe that waking up every day with words of inspiration goes a long way in making a business day fulfilling. In this category, I provide inspirational articles that I believe come in handy for workers. Be sure to look up this section every now and then to stay uplifted.
Since the inception of this blog, I have come to realize that our jobs or work affect every other aspect of our lives. To improve on this and with the suggestion of our readers, this category will provide everything relaxing that can help you make the best out of life.
My husband and I will regularly give reviews on movies we think are worth a try. We love to watch movies and series (a whole lot!), and friends would call us to make recommendations before they see any.
I thought it will be nice to share our love for movies with you all as it helps relax us. Even better, you get the time to watch movies that don’t bore you out! We hope to save you the stress. I asked him and he was happy to do this!
There will also be a lot of other lifestyle topics shared in this category in a bid to ease stress. Look at it this way: come over to this side of the blog to chat over a glass or cup of anything!
This is a column that features inspiring workers in diverse industries. I may not have all the answers and so I figured we could also hear from experts in various fields. This column will inspire you to bring your best foot forward.

7. THE IMMIGRANT WORKER
In my blogging/ vlogging journey, I discovered that many of my readers wanted more info on immigration issues and my life as an immigrant. I decided to write on this aspect as well and so this category covers everything that involves immigration – life, work, hurdles, career, etc. However, please note that I primarily focus on Canada since this is where I currently reside.
8. THE WORKAHOLIC SERIES
This blog segment gives the opportunity to read relatable stories on the life of workers. There’ll be hilarious stories, serious ones and from time to time you can expect one or two jokes (if I turn out to be hilarious enough lol).
This segment will have more of story telling depicting reality in a bid to juxtapose life in diverse settings. Please bear in mind that most of these stories will be fictitious. Where otherwise, I’ll state so.
Please note that all blog posts and suggestions on Zinny Factor are entirely written by me and or form my opinion (except where otherwise stated).
