More awesome images that were created with the use of Dall-E and content with the assistance of CHAT-GPT.
Another week of experimenting with AI and being an entrepreneur, and another week of feeling absolutely blown away by what is even out there.
Do you know AI totally meal planned for me last week? Yeah. I didn't use my brain for it AT ALL. Well maybe a little, but the bulk of the work I left up to AI. You can. Literally just ask chat gpt to come up with a meal plan for you for 7 days and a shopping list too! Mind blown.
Generating images is not always easy. For this article, I had to spend a lot of time with my friend DALL-E, who despite claiming it's innocence, I'm pretty sure it has a preference it isn't willing to give up. 👀
Despite the frustration that can come with working with these platforms and tools I find what they have to offer extraordinary. At one time so many of the things that felt unimaginable or totally insurmountable, they are right at our fingertips. I wrote this from my phone laying in bed with Coco!
Cause for Concern
Despite my excitement, I must say another important conclusion I have come to which is that more women must be in AI. More women and people of color. On average, the typical developer of AI is approximately 44 years old, white and male. I dunno about you, but I think this could possibly be impacting the above image generations. I have big feelings and more to share on this topic but at the moment I leave this here as a call to action for more women and POC to get to using AI and start impacting the way it's being developed, the future really depends on it.
But here's where the magic of AI comes into play. These innovative tools have revolutionized the way I approach my business, offering me the much-needed leverage to balance these two demanding roles effectively.

AI: The Bridge Between Motherhood and Entrepreneurial Success
Do you know how long it would have taken me to create the image above? I just could not. I know the usd of AI is definitely raising many questions. I as an artist don't believe any of my work is unique enough to not be replicated. I don't think any art is. Do I think work should be plagiarized outright? No. I don't believe that either. But one thing I do know, is it has significantly reduced the time I spend creating content and has significantly impacted my quality. I hold AI for entreprenuers sticks around, it's changing my life.
