On This Week's Common Courtesy TV
This Week: Ever been blindsided by a business closure? Ever felt the frustration of being left in the lurch, with little warning or compensation? On this episode of Common Courtesy TV, we walk with LaQuana Santiago, a singer and former employee of Zoie's, a once-thriving business in St. Petersburg, FL, that closed its doors unexpectedly. Together, we unravel his experiences, the low points, his resilience, and the lessons learned from the abrupt end of Zoie's.
Cast your mind to the moment you find out your source of livelihood is being pulled out from under your feet, without warning. LaQuana felt this sting firsthand, and he paints a vivid picture of the emotional turmoil, the financial anxiety, and the harsh reality many employees face when businesses fold up abruptly. We delve into the nuances of the distressing impact on his colleagues, their collective anger at the lack of warning, the final paychecks, and the insincere consolation prizes. The conversation captures the ripple effect these closures have on the community, emphasizing the importance of businesses providing their employees adequate notice and pay.
But we're not all gloom and doom. LaQuana's journey didn't end with Zoie's. He took his misfortune, turned it on its head, and built something incredible. His resilience shines through as he shares about his new food venture, Qlicious. From soul foods to carnival foods, he's got it all cooking. This episode is a poignant testament to the resilience of the human spirit. It's a must-listen for anyone dealing with the aftermath of business closures and looking for inspiration on how to bounce back.
