Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind, let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3-4 NKJV)
ADVANCING THE KINGDOM
LaQuita Parks’ resourceful entrepreneurial track record is such that she goes to great lengths to demonstrate that she has a heart for people.
A great, big heart, to put it more precisely.
“Everything that we go through in this life is for us to help someone else,” Parks, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining why is it imperative to esteem others highly than herself. “I think it all starts with the attitude. I love telling my story, not to bore or gain sympathy, but to encourage people that if I can deal with 48 years of chronic pain — “don’t know a day without pain since I was four years old” — and do all I do, so can you.
“I know our stories are different, but I believe God has equipped us with everything we need to do everything we need to do. My goal is to inspire everyone I come in contact with to be bold and walk in their purpose. I think the world would be a better place if we focused on building up instead of tearing down. It ain’t about me.”

To her distinctly unique credit, coupled with the divine calling on her life, Parks undoubtedly is doing her part to make the world a “better place,” most notably as the face of Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing, her Atlanta-based featured business endeavor that has become a fixture for offering a personal touch to ensure its clients who we are completely committed to the process “as we help them grow from caterpillars to butterflies,” said a spokesperson for Parks’ company at https://paprovipublishing.com/what-we-do-1.
“We want to create trendsetters that will blaze their way into their dreams realized,” continued a Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing representative. “We simply want to help develop our clients as they grow.”

Generally, such immense growth is done largely by way of Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing’s Commitment, which is centered on encouraging and inspiring what Parks deems a deep sense of love, respect, and creativity with every client.
And then there’s Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing’s Responsibility, which is geared primarily toward “conducting ourselves and our business in a professional manner,” said a spokesperson for this credible company.
According to Parks, Pa-Pro-Vi is a collective abbreviation for “Pain, Progress, Victory.”
“Because I believe that without pain there is no progress, and without progress, there can be no victory,” Parks explained. “I help people take their stories from a thought to a realization.”
A progressive, thriving company that is a little more than two years removed from its inception, amongst the things about which Parks deems gratifying is that Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing was birthed in the midst of an unprecedented global pandemic.
Much to her delight, though, her featured business endeavor has been as good as advertised, given it has attracted a global presence in the process.
“Since I officially published my first book, I have had the pleasure to work with clients from Georgia to Maine and everywhere in between,” Parks told MHN. “I am humbled to work and collaborate with some amazing people all over the world. I have current business relationships with people in Belgium, Australia, India, Canada, Sweden, and South Africa.”
As for her keen motivation for overseeing the day-to-day operations of a successful publishing company, Parks said: “My personal mission is to help people take their stories from a thought to a realization. I want people to understand that there is power in sharing your story. Every time I share my personal story of how I was crippled at the hands of a nurse when I was four years old, I become more empowered.
“See, telling your story doesn’t give away your power, it makes you take your power back. There are so many people who have lost their voice because their story is too painful to tell, or too sad to tell, or someone has conditioned them to keep that family secret. This causes an abundance of pain and confusion, or what I like to call ‘communication noises,’ but sharing that story heals you and give the person listening to you the courage to fight through their similar situation. It creates an “If you can, then so can I’ frame of thinking, then healing takes place.”
Interestingly enough, Parks is especially appreciative of a solid support system that has greatly empowered her to broaden her horizon by making her entrepreneurial dream a reality.
“I have an amazing support circle,” Parks, a native of Atlanta, said. “My three adult children and my grandbabies keep me focused on my purpose. My close friends and church family have been tremendously supportive and help keep me spiritually grounded. The two people who continue to be my inspiration and who would be celebrating every accomplishment with me would be my mother, Sheila G. Eberhart, and my grandmother, Bessie Eberhart Harris.
“They both passed away in 2009, just 17 short days apart. My world was devastated then and it still hurts today, but I know that these two women loved me unconditionally, and they were proud of me then and would be overjoyed with me now.”
Besides being the mastermind behind a globally-acclaimed publishing company, Parks is the CEO of Founder of A Failure 2 Communicate Mentoring Programs, a flourishing endeavor that allows her to customarily teach young people the importance of loving themselves from the inside out.

Having been mentoring and coaching for over two decades in a number of notable capacities, Parks started A Failure 2 Communicate in June 2012.
As for the sustained success she enjoys as the face of Pa-Pro-Vi Publishing, Parks admittedly embraces the freedom to create her own space, not to mention the luxury of working at her own pace.
“I love the fact that I have created a safe platform to give individuals an opportunity to share their life story, whether personal or business,” Parks said. “I love seeing the breakthroughs, the lightbulb (moments) come on and the ‘ah-ha’ moments. I never get used to seeing that first-time author have that final project in their hands. What I love most is watching them go from pain to progress and from progress to victory.”
All the while savoring the divine purpose for which she was created.
With God, her Helper, steering the way.
