“Every little girl watching tonight sees that this is a country of possibilities. And to the children of our country, regardless of your gender, our country has sent you a clear message: dream with ambition, lead with conviction, and see yourself in a way that others might not see you, simply because they’ve never seen it before. And we will applaud you every step of the way.” — Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris
BORN TO WIN
For a considerable amount of time, Angela Marshall elected not to disclose to the masses a key part of her sometimes stormy, life-altering journey.
The very moment she discovered her God-given purpose, however, amongst the things she subsequently realized is that addressing even those dreaded seasons of her journey were essential with regards to her healing.
Consider, for instance, Marshall’s days at both Davidson Fine Arts Magnet School in Augusta, Georgia and Hephzibah (Georgia) High School.
“I did not graduate due to pregnancy, (but I) proudly received GED in 1990,” Marshall told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “Before I started walking in my purpose, I was ashamed to reveal that information. Now I realize that a rough start does not define your ending unless you allow it.”
To her distinctly unique credit, Marshall has taken what she sensed, at one point in time, was an embarrassing situation and customarily uses it to help enhance and empower others to become better version of themselves.

A native of Fort Gordon, Georgia, Marshall has made immeasurable strides in recent years as the face of In Other Words By Stone, a credible venture that is comprised of the longtime businesswoman serving as an empowerment speaker, author, influencer, and creative content consultant.
For Marshall, 49, her rise to functioning fervently in her element come amid humble beginnings, particularly as the former wife of an NFL player.
“Living that lifestyle exposed me to around-the-clock spectators who don’t determine win or lose, get off the bench, and get in-the-game mindset,” said Marshall, explaining what fueled her desire to start her featured endeavor. “Even as a child, I was always trying to beat my own scores and records. I remember being in one pageant that I placed as the runner-up. I was determined the next year to win and I did.”
A “global public figure” in her own right, Marshall has managed to establish a brand that has garnered a worldwide presence in recent years.
Marshall’s In Other Words By Stone customarily serves people and groups ranging ages six to 70 years of age.
“I’ve blessed to grace stages across this amazing world,” Marshall said. “To date, the greatest has been on the Essence Empowerment Conversations Forum in New Orleans. Even during this pandemic, I am requested virtually to speak and share my words, work, and wisdom across diverse platforms internationally.”
That, to Marshall’s credit, is a massive sign of things to come surrounding her empowerment venture, something by which she doesn’t merely take lightly, given the gruesome hurdles she’s had to clear throughout the years.
“As a person that had lost the will to be myself and became a willing participant to follow trends, societal pressures, and cultural opinions, I am passionate about helping others ‘retrain the brain’ to be who they are created to be and not who the world attempts to brainwash them to become,” Marshall said. “Believe it or not, it was the masses that would constantly assess and assume that I lived a perfect life because of the association with the supposed celebrity lifestyle as an NFL wife. If I had a nickel for every time someone said to me, ‘I wish I had your life,’ I would be a multi-millionaire. I knew I had to tell my truth and tell my story.”
For what it’s worth, it is an emotionally-driven, life-altering story, of sorts, one that figures to have a lasting impact for generations to come.
As far as Marshall is concerned, it is a trend she fully welcomes.
“I have various global podcasts and radio shows that have requested to share my journey of struggles, strength, and success,” Marshall said. “I’m really looking forward to continuing being the guest author for virtual book clubs…another great avenue of interacting and inspiring during the global crisis.”
An In Other Words By Stone venture she established some five year ago, Marshall acknowledged that being an empowerment extraordinaire, by all accounts, has afforded her the golden opportunity to create solace amid what she describes as “a great balance of problems and solutions,” many of which have forced her to face “myself to grow.”
When asked why it is imperative that she esteem and inspire others daily, Marshall said: “Sharing your path, pain, and progression gives an uplifting perspective on what it’s like to go through dark times and finally realize there is a light at the end of the tunnel, how to mute out the external noise and pressures, and the importance of being your created self.
“People need to know they are not alone in their struggles. We are all flawed and going through challenges. I believe life is a series of tables and doors. Be careful where you take a seat and who you allow to sit at your table. Don’t fret over closed doors and don’t be too quick to rejoice over an open door. There is good in goodbye and sometimes hell in hello.”
