Florida real estate professional Lloyd Covington following in his millionaire father’s massive footsteps

MILWAUKEE’S BEST 

FROM HUMBLING BEGINNINGS — Much to his delight, Lloyd Covington has enjoyed a considerable amount of success as the face of Covington Properties LLC and Affordable Rentals For You LLC, his Boca Raton, Florida-based companies that is starting to attract more of national presence, a trend this notable businessman had hoped for since the inception of his endeavor.

Go right ahead.

Underestimate Lloyd Covington.
All that’s going to do, by all accounts, is inspire him to work even harder to accomplish his monumental goals and ambitions.
“If someone told me I couldn’t do something, I would always make it my business to out-create everyone around me,” Lloyd told Making Headline News this week. “My competitive drive came from my insatiable desire to go beyond what people would tell me I could do. That’s my own personal mamba mentality, which was instilled in me by my father, who became a multi-millionaire before he turned 40 years old.”
For Covington, a devoted businessman, his rise to achieving entrepreneurship success has arisen amid humble beginnings, not to mention because of his fervent quest to defy arguably the toughest of odds.
Much to his delight, Covington has enjoyed a considerable amount of success as the face of Covington Properties LLC and Affordable Rentals For You LLC, his Boca Raton, Florida-based companies that are starting to attract more of national presence, a trend this notable businessman had hoped for since the inception of his endeavor.

“The best thing about my business is I get to help people from all walks of life, from abused women, the disabled, elderly and veterans,” Covington said. “My business serves the underserved.”

A rental properties endeavor that spans 25 years, Covington has become a fixture while functioning in his element. He currently owns 45 properties in his native establishment of Milwaukee, as well as 15 properties in Memphis, and seven properties in South Florida.

Given the immeasurable strides he’s made since delving off into what has become a competitive industry, Covington hasn’t shown any signs that he plans to slow down anytime soon.

If nothing else, he’s destined to expand what undoubtedly is shaping up to become a national empire, of sorts.


“My personal mission is for everyone to know you can make a difference in the world,” Covington said. “The only thing stopping you is not believing you can make a difference and not taking action.”


To his credit, ever since Covington earned an undergraduate degree in Finance from the University of Memphis, he’s not only taken action as it pertains to reaping entrepreneurship success, but he’s strategically devise ways to enhance and build on it.

Fortunately for him, he’s been as good as advertised.

“I’ve have expanded my reach to ensure I’m making a difference in the communities I serve,” he said. “We are all here to make a difference in the world. We all have that power. The question is, ‘What are you doing with your power?’”

“I’m truly grateful for everything in my life and for having the support of my wife, who inspires me to be greater,” Covington said.

Besides his wife, Covington said his businesslike approach was instilled in him by his father.

“My father inspired me. He has over a 150 properties and taught me in my younger years how to run a business, how to generate revenue, and how to create a thriving sustainable business,” Covington said.

Now with more than two decades of real estate experience, Covington has become greatly empowered to give back in a big through his professional endeavor.

A rental properties endeavor that spans 25 years, Covington has become a fixture while functioning in his element. He currently owns 45 properties in his native establishment of Milwaukee, as well as 15 properties in Memphis, and seven properties in South Florida.

He has announced the startup of an online course he will be conducting in June 2020, classes that will educate aspire real estate professionals on how to generate income in real estate.

Generally, Covington’s sustained success has emerged amid having garnered partnerships and contracts with local state, and federal agencies, he said.

“I’ve have expanded my reach to ensure I’m making a difference in the communities I serve,” he said. “We are all here to make a difference in the world. We all have that power. The question is, ‘What are you doing with your power?’”

All things considered, he would know.

How else to explain how he’s managed to diligently defy arguably the toughest of odds?

Mid-South author Cherelle Fifer’s childhood passion for writing gives way to her first published book


“I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)


REAPING A HARVEST 

WHEN PRAISES GO UP — Five years removed from having been introduced to her God-mandated to compose a book, Cherelle Fifer has finally witnessed her authorship debut come to fruition with the recent release of “My Life, My Victory, Victorious Woman.”

For Cherelle Fifer, her rise to emerging as an accomplished author began during her childhood days, growing up in Illinois.

Today, unlike never before, she’s been blessed mightily to have a firm grip on her remarkably compelling gift as a writer.
“As a child, I used to take a note books and start writing about my life,” Fifer told Making Headline News this week. “I went through so many note books…just writing.”
For the record, Fifer has appropriately taken her vision as an eloquent writer and run with it. To her credit, she hasn’t shown any signs that she plans to slow down anytime soon in the department.
Why should she?
Five yearS removed from having been introduced to her God-mandated to compose a book, Fifer has finally witnessed her authorship debut come to fruition with the recent release of “My Life, My Victory, Victorious Woman.”

BUY CHERELLE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/My-Life-Victory-Victorious-Woman-ebook/dp/B07YZPSLSP

A 71-page written work that was officially published on October 25, 2019, Fifer’s “My Life, My Victory, Victorious Woman” recalls the flurry of trials and tribulations through which she has endured during the course of her life.

“Five years ago, God reminded me of life story,” Fifer said. “But I really didn’t start writing until two years ago.”

Surely, the past 24 months or so weren’t time wasted for Fifer, a Meridan, Mississippi author who has earned the right to bask in the glory of her divine element as a writer, most notably with her newly-assembled book.

“God has been writing my story my whole life,” said Fifer, deeming it essential to give credit where it’s rightfully due. “I chose to write this book, because I knew it was time to show people now that God had delivered and healed me and showed how to get and take my power back. I had to share with others how to get delivered and take their power back…the freedom in their minds.”


A PIVOTAL REMINDER…

A 71-page written work that was officially published on October 25, 2019, Fifer’s “My Life, My Victory, Victorious Woman” recalls the flurry of trials and tribulations through which she has endured during the course of her life.

“But God brought me out of all of that,” Fifer reinforces in a detailed introduction of her book at Amazon.com. “I went through abuse, neglect, hurt, pain.”

Still, in spite of the rash of turmoil and misfortunes that had surfaced in her life to challenge her faith, all Fifer had done in the process was…well, she simply trusted the process.

For her fervent efforts, the aftermath of her season in the wilderness had ultimately worked out in her favor.


“And then I received healing, deliverance and found my joy in the Lord,” Fifer explained. “I am telling my testimony to help encourage and bless others…that you can receive freedom and strength the way I did to keep going. Without God, I am nothing, and with Him, I am everything.”


A book she needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to construct, Fifer said the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience is rather simple.

“No matter what comes your way in life, never give up,” she says with such godly authority. Stay strong and never let anyone take your power. Always forgive and never stop trusting God…even when you can’t see your way.”

FAMILY FOCUS — “I am a woman of God, a wife to an amazing, strong man of God, and a mother to five beautiful children,” Fifer said. “I am an author. I am praying warrior in the army of the Lord. My passion is to encourage and empowering people to do all God has called to do and to never give up. I love to motivate and share what the Lord has downloaded in my spirit. I’m in love with God.”

Having announced that other books are soon to follow, Fifer is appreciative of the fact that her first published work has generated a slew of rave reviews since its official release.

“People that have read my book, tell me my book is powerful and they can relate to a lot of things I have been through,” Fifer said. “(They’ve told me they’ve been) able to find those things they hid deep in the heart like unforgiveness, pain, and hurts from the past. And now that they read my book, they are able to release and take their power back.”

Surely, the past 24 months or so weren’t time wasted for Fifer, a Meridan, Mississippi author who has earned the right to bask in the glory of her divine element as a writer, most notably with her newly-assembled book.

All things considered, coupled with where God is taking her, Fifer can’t help but often think of the goodness of Jesus and all He’s done for her — through the good, the bad, and the ugly.

“I am a woman of God, a wife to an amazing, strong man of God, and a mother to five beautiful children,” Fifer said. “I am an author. I am praying warrior in the army of the Lord. My passion is to encourage and empowering people to do all God has called to do and to never give up. I love to motivate and share what the Lord has downloaded in my spirit. I’m in love with God.”

As for as God is concerned, surely, the sentiments undoubtedly are mutual.

EXERCISING HER FAITH — Having announced that other books are soon to follow, Fifer is appreciative of the fact that her first published work has generated a slew of rave reviews since its official release.

Dallas’ Gavis Thomas outlast 16 felonies, 22 convictions en route to his church’s official launch March 1


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 KJV)


RAISING HIS GODLY STANDARD 

THIS IS HOLY GROUND — Nearly seven years removed from having completed a mandatory parole and probation, Elder Gavis Thomas is just hours away from reaching the pinnacle of his tenure as an ordained minister when he officially becomes Senior Pastor of Dallas’ Raise The Standard Holy Temple Church of God In Christ.

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — It doesn’t take much to inspire Gavis Thomas to disclose one particularly testimony that undoubtedly has changed the overall landscape of his life.

Such was the case back on September 15, 2019 during which Thomas stood before a throng of worshippers at West Irving Church of God In Christ, where he dauntlessly shared with the masses how God miraculously turned his mess into an extraordinary message for the ages.
“I have 16 felonies and 22 convictions,” Thomas said aloud without a microphone moments before Bishop Andrew Jackson Sr. — the father of West Irving Senior Pastor, Superintendent Andrew Jackson Jr. — was preparing to give a sermon. “And some of the convictions are from violations I had.”
To his credit, it is an awe-inspiring, spiritually gut-checking testimony by which Thomas has uttered time and again, particularly since he sold out completely to God a little more than two decades ago.
Once saddled and bound by a downtrodden crack cocaine addiction that cost him a whopping $300 a day, Thomas’ life has taken on what could be appropriately described as a 180-degree turn, one that even to this very day, has subsequently given way to a rather unlikely turn of events.

Nearly seven years removed from having completed a mandatory parole and probation, Thomas is just hours away from reaching the pinnacle of his tenure as an ordained minister when he officially becomes Senior Pastor of Raise The Standard Holy Temple Church of God In Christ.

A newly-established church that’s located at 8217 Melinda Lane in Dallas, Thomas’ much-anticipated milestone comes approximately 22 years after his initial ordination in Alaska as a product of the Full Gospel Baptist denomination.

Thomas’ second ordination took place in 2016 under the leadership of Bishop Robert Nichols Sr., the Prelate of the Texas East Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of COGIC.

His affiliation with West Irving dates back to 2017, an alliance that, given the immeasurable strides he’s made in such a brief span, seems much longer than that.

Now it’s on to overseeing the day-to-day operations of his own ministry, a well-deserved, heaven-mandated development that will surely give way to this young preacher unleashing tears of joy sometime before 4 p.m. CST on Sunday.

“It’s time out for entertaining in the church…and back to holiness,” Thomas told Making Headline News this week.

STAND BY HER MAN — As usual, Thomas will have at his disposal LaCresha Thomas — his wife of nearly eight years — to help expand and promote a ministry that possesses the attributes and wherewithal to have an immediate impact in the Mesquite and surrounding areas, hopefully much sooner than later.

As usual, Thomas will have at his disposal LaCresha Thomas — his wife of nearly eight years — to help expand and promote a ministry that figures to possess the attributes and wherewithal to have an immediate impact in the Mesquite and surrounding areas, hopefully much sooner than later.

Both of whom are natives of inner city Dallas, the Thomases first met some 37 years ago and instantly formed a close-knit connection.  “I first met her when I was 13 and took her to my eighth grade prom,” Gavis Thomas recalled. “Got my first kiss and told her that one day she was going to be my wife.”

Much to his delight, it essentially was a borderline prophesy, of sorts, one that had ultimately come to fruition, considering the couple would cross paths again sometime in 2011 and eventually exchanged nuptials roughly a year later.

Ahhh…Reunited…and it feels so good.

Never mind that this rookie Pastor was in the waning stages of his mandatory probation at the time of the couple’s divine reunion.

All things considered, God was clearly up to something, was undoubtedly orchestrating a miraculous turn of events concerning the life of Gavis Thomas — a once homeless, young khat, who had a rash of drama-filled run-ins with an ongoing drug addiction in these dangerous Texas streets, to a seasoned, well-dressed minister, who’s well on his way to making monumental strides in the Body of Christ.


“I’m a strong advocate of Christian outreach,” said Thomas, who was the catalyst for West Irving’s prison ministry, which centered largely on visiting prisons, halfway houses, homeless shelters, and nursing homes to witness and preach the gospel.


Once saddled and bound by crack cocaine addiction that cost him a whopping $300 a day, Thomas’ life has taken on what could be appropriately described as a 180-degree turn, one that to this day, has subsequently given way to a rather unlikely turn of events.

Interestingly, Thomas said his lengthy time in prison essentially saved his life, thus drew him closer to God, in large part because his drug addiction could have very well landed him in his grave.

Way too soon.

“Being incarcerated is a survival or failure, and I knew deep down inside of me that I was a survivor,” Thomas said. “So I took the negative energy and turned it into positive by taking Bible courses.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

From the streets…to the crack house…to the jail cell…to the pulpit.

Now we know why it doesn’t take much to inspire this ex-felon-turned-preacher to recall one particular testimony that undoubtedly has changed the overall landscape of his life.

With or without a microphone.

AFTER HE SUFFERED AWHILE — Interestingly, Thomas said his lengthy time in prison essentially saved his life and had drawn him closer to God, in large part because his drug addiction could have very well robbed him of his life.

Virginia businesswoman Frances Ann Bailey basking in her divine purpose as the face of Red Door Empowerment


Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalm 37:4 NIV)


OPENING MASSIVE DOORS

GOD’S FAITH STEPPER — A native of Painter, Virginia, Frances Ann Bailey, 34, owns two business ventures, all the while functioning in her element as a certified life coach, certified leader, and motivational-inspirational speaker.

Without question, God has strategic plans for all of His children.

As far as Frances Ann Bailey is concerned, she, likewise, has a notable plan she’d like to exemplify as a unique way to show reverence unto God.
“What I love best about being in business is that I am making God smile by answering the call He had on my life,” Bailey, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explain the awe-inspiring developments surrounding her endeavors. “Furthermore, I come from a small town and I just want to those close to me on Eastern Shore win.”
Much to the delight of Bailey, because of her steadfast commitment to delight herself in the Lord through the purpose for which she was created, God has, in turn, given her the desires of her heart.

MORE ON FRANCES BAILEY: https://francesannbailey.com/

A rising nonprofit organization, Bailey’s Red Door Empowerment strategic purpose is centered largely on — but isn’t limited to — empowering, equipping, and educating individuals to walk out of things holding them hostage and shifting their focus on walking in deliverance to reach their destiny.

Generally, Bailey is widely known as the President of Red Door Empowerment and the CEO of Frances Bailey Enterprises LLC.

As Bailey recalls, she had no lofty idea that God was birthing within her vision during which she was ironically preparing to give birth — physically.

“When God called me, I didn’t know that I was pregnant with twins,” Bailey said. Not long after Red Door Empowerment was birthed, so was Frances Bailey Enterprises LLC.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Interestingly, Red Door Empowerment offers college sponsorships for students, particularly those who are facing financial barriers as they prepare to make the transition from high school to the college campus.

Today, having been set aside for God’s use for a pivotal time as now, here’s Bailey, basking in the glory of her divine calling with God, her Helper, steering the way.

A rising nonprofit organization, Bailey’s Red Door Empowerment’s strategic purpose is centered largely on — but isn’t limited to — empowering, equipping, and educating individuals to walk out of things holding them hostage and shifting their focus on walking in deliverance to reach their destiny.

Moreover, Red Door Empowerment is committed to customarily providing community outreach by ways of events, workshops, and support groups to help those on different paths of life to walk in freedom from life’s obstacles, all the while fortifying the love of Christ.


“We serve just to give back to the community and help others,” Bailey said of her organization, which accommodates people from various walks of life. “A couple months ago, we held a free event called ‘Pray Praise and Paint Night’ for the community just to have a night of relaxation and no stress.”


An event that was an instant success, Bailey and her staff have made “Pray Praise and Paint Night” a common trend for a Christian-based organization that has become a fixture for giving back to the community.

Much to the delight of Bailey, because of her steadfast commitment to delight herself in the Lord through the purpose for which she was created, God has, in turn, given her the desires of her heart.

Also, Red Door has become known for assisting those in crisis through his variety of support groups, notably people who suffer with alcohol addiction, depression, broken families, etc. Its Broken To Heal support group is especially beneficial to women who have dealt with domestic violence and other forms of adversity in relationships.

A devout woman of faith, Bailey holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Criminal Justice Management and Administration.  She’s currently pursuing a Master’s in Public Administration.

Today, having been set aside for God’s use for a pivotal time as now, here’s Bailey, basking in the glory of her divine calling with God, her Helper, steering the way.

As for her thriving endeavors, Bailey was inspired by her fellow businesswoman Lakisha Bannister, who once enlightened her on the benefits of “taking a step into action” during a local women’s conference.

“She reminded me that I born to create, multiply, and that I was a producer,” Bailey said of Bannister who’s also an accomplished author. “Another part of my inspiration comes from listening to (Bishop) T. D. Jakes’ sermons daily. Furthermore, the sermons preached from my spiritual leader, my pastor of Anointed Word In Keller, Virginia, gave me a boost of empowerment to resurrect the gifts that were inside of me.”

DESTINY STEPS — Bailey is widely known as the President of Red Door Empowerment and the CEO of Frances Bailey Enterprises LLC.

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, Bailey has been blessed mightily to walk in her purpose, all the while encouraging others to follow suit.

“Along my journey, I have gained a number of mentors, coaches, and friends that have pushed me and poured into me to help me to keep thriving,” Bailey said. “I don’t take any of them for granted.”

Amongst the reasons is because she’s armed with a notable plan she’d like to exemplify as a unique way to show reverence unto God, a plan that is steadily coming full circle.

Every single day.

North Carolina entrepreneur Shameka Jones advancing the kingdom mightily as Christian-based author


I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV)


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Durham, North Carolina, Shameka Jones has been blessed to emerge as a fixture throughout the Body of Christ, most notably by way of her immeasurable gifts as an author.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, Shameka Jones’ authorship track record is such that she has made a pledge to acknowledge her Creator in all of her ways.

“We wanted to influence women all around the world on how to be empowered, encourage, and on how some of us have overcome our trials by the words of our testimonies,” Jones, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining how she has gone about becoming a Christian-based author.
A native of Durham, North Carolina, Jones has been blessed to emerge as a fixture throughout the Body of Christ, most notably by way of her immeasurable gifts as an author.
Jones is widely known for having contributed to “31 Ways of Influence,” a recently-released anthology that is spearheaded by award-winning author Dr. Derashay Zorn.
One of more than a dozen writers who deemed it essential to join forces to assemble “31 Ways of Influence,” this 250-page project has essentially become a globally-acclaimed masterpiece amid an empowerment conference Zorn hosted some time in 2018.

BUY AUTHOR JONES’ BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/WAYS-INFLUENCE-Dr-Derashay-Zorn-ebook/dp/B07YGWVZP1

Released officially on November 1, 2019, “31 Ways Of Influence” is an awe-inspiring, spiritually-empowering book that focuses and teaches specifically on the principles of what these writers describe as “the Proverbs 31 Woman,” many of whom have endured their share of personal experiences as a strategic way to use their expertise to greatly enable other women to become a better version of themselves.

Moreover, each woman in this anthology has provided specific tools for success, all the while utilizing the Proverbs 31 woman attribute as an effective way to have an impact in others’ life.

“They are equipping women on how to show up authentically on purpose and how to utilize what God has placed inside of them to be impactful and influential,” said an Amazon spokesperson for “31 Ways Of Influence” at https://www.amazon.com/WAYS-INFLUENCE-Dr-Derashay-Zorn-ebook/dp/B07YGWVZP1. “It offers 31 tools of success in the areas of entrepreneurship, self-development, spirituality, finances, relationship, intercession, and purpose.”

Not to be outdone, Jones also made valiant contributions to “Letters To My Legacy Volume 1: Letters Of Love From A Mother’s Heart” in what undoubtedly was a banner year for this North Carolina-based author in 2019.

Generally, each chapter in “31 Ways Of Influence” includes a devotion, supplication, affirmation, and application to equip the women of God in His word of truth.

Not to be outdone, Jones also made valiant contributions to “Letters To My Legacy Volume 1: Letters Of Love From A Mother’s Heart” in what undoubtedly was a banner year for this North Carolina-based author in 2019.

A book that was officially released on May 12, 2019, “Letters To My Legacy Volume 1: Letters Of Love From A Mother’s Heart” was forward by Rhonda Watts-Robinson M.Div. and is comprised of five authors.


STAY TUNED 

“We had to write seven pages for the book and it had to be completed within a month,” said Jones, explaining the memorable developments that transpired during her journey to help assemble “Letters To My Legacy Volume 1: Letters Of Love From A Mother’s Heart.’ “Me and four other women wrote letters to our children about when we were pregnant with them and what we had to endure during pregnancy and after pregnancy, giving them some words of wisdom of maneuvering through life and I also put one of my poems in book about my life. I didn’t have an easy life. I had to fight for everything in life.”

For what’s it worth, Jones emphasized that her assortment of life-changing testimonies as an author is her strategic way of helping to advance the kingdom.

For Jones, it is due in large part because to her bend-but-don’t-break faith, coupled with her quest to live and dwell on the larger side of God that she had subsequently crossed paths with the divine purpose for which she was created — particularly as a devout woman of faith, one who also assumes the roles as an accomplished entrepreneur and life coach.

A mother of two daughters, Jones’ life has been mired by domestic violence, childhood trauma, generational curses and rejection, she explained.

Still, because she was determined to enroll in a school for ministry during which she was afforded the golden opportunity to exemplify her faith through the Word of God, she eventually overcame a rash of obstacles and adversities and turmoil, all of which have enabled her to currently live a life that has become “truly remarkable,” by her standards.

“We had to write seven pages for the book and it had to be completed within a month,” said Jones, explaining the memorable developments that transpired during her journey to help assemble “Letters To My Legacy Volume 1: Letters Of Love From A Mother’s Heart.’ “Me and four other women wrote letters to our children about when we were pregnant with them and what we had to endure during pregnancy and after pregnancy, giving them some words of wisdom of maneuvering through life and I also put one of my poems in book about my life. I didn’t have an easy life. I had to fight for everything in life.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for His children a much-anticipated way of escape.

“Every book that I am in is (geared toward) ministry,” Jones said. “I know that is going to touch woman’s lives and they’re going to think to themselves that, ‘If God did it for her, He can do the same thing for me.’ I know that God has placed a deliverance ministry inside of me, so by me telling people my story and how I overcame so many obstacles — as far as being me as a child, being molested and God healed me — when my aunt took me to church and got me prayed over and then I could speak. I’ve been through abandonment issues, rejection, abused mentally, physically, and is a survivor of domestic violence…a single mother (was thought I was about) to die on two different occasions with guns pointed to my head, etc.”

For what’s it worth, Jones emphasized that her assortment of life-changing testimonies as an author is her strategic way of helping to advance the kingdom.

“It’s always been in my heart to help people with whatever issues they have going on,” Jones said. “God has installed the wisdom into me on strategies on how to get over whatever problems that (other women) are having in life.”

SHE GOT THAT WRIGHT 

HANDFUL OF SUCCESS — A seventh grader at Ignite Middle School, Jade Hall-Wright is the mastermind behind The Wright Pop, a DFW-area gourmet popcorn business that has been opened for operations since May 2019.

“My mission is to give back to my community and also to grow up to be a well-known entrepreneur,” Hall-Wright told Making Headline News during a recent interview.
To her distinctly unique credit, this youngster is giving back mightily, thanks in large part to a business venture that is shaping up to become one of Dallas/Fort Worth’s finest — much sooner than later.
A seventh grader at Ignite Middle School, Hall-Wright is the mastermind behind The Wright Pop, a DFW-area gourmet popcorn business that has been opened for operations since May 2019.

All things considered, it seemed that Hall-Wright was thrust into the world of entrepreneurship, considering her family owns the famous Halls Chicken, located at 2327 South Buckner Boulevard in Dallas.

Following in his grandmother’s footsteps, Houston’s Marcus Flakes’ amazing culinary dreams have become a reality


A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 KJV)


AMERICA’S CHEF 

DOING TO BIG IN TEXAS…AND BEYOND — A native of Houston, Marcus Flakes, 47, is the mastermind behind Marco’s Pepper Grill Food Truck, his awe-inspiring endeavor that is just days away from its much-anticipated grand opening on March 7 at 403 Eats Food Truck Park, located at 403 East Main Street in nearby Tomball, Texas.

LANCASTER, Texas — Stay tuned, world. And remember the name: Marcus Flakes.

Amongst the grandest reasons is that Flakes’ immeasurable gifts as a cook throughout the years have been nothing short of remarkable.
“I’ve been cooking since the age of 10,” Flakes told Making Headline News this week. “I used to watch my grandmother cook and we’d talk about cooking.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Thanks in large part to the constant guidance and wisdom of his grandmother, Flakes has been blessed mightily to walk in her massive footsteps, having established a well-respected professional culinary resume that’s shaping to garner more of a global impact.

MORE ON CHEF FLAKES: https://www.facebook.com/marcusaflakes/

The grand opening will take place from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. CST and, according to Flakes, such an occasion is “very fitting” for the annual Mardi Gras season.

“So it will be a Mardi Gras theme,” said Flakes, referring to his food truck’s specialty dishes that will include jambalaya, Etouffee, and bread pudding, among other delectable foods.

A cooking repertoire that spans nearly four decades — 37 years, to put it more precisely — it seemed that Flakes was destined to become an entrepreneur from the outset.

Given the remarkably brilliant strides Flakes has made throughout the years, it’s safe to assume he’s well on his way to reaping global success in his selected industry.

“(My grandmother’s influence) later inspired me to be what she didn’t have a chance to become due to her age and era,” Flakes, a military veteran, explained. “My paternal grandfather was business owner and I’d spend a lot of time watching him run our family store, which is my family’s estate now. He taught me the value of dollar, saving and investing.  I even learned about whole selling, retailing, and counting money backwards when technology wasn’t as advanced as it is today.”

Even during his stint in the military, Flakes was guilty of having never allowed his culinary skills to fall by the wayside. Even while serving his country, in fact, there he was, putting his immeasurable and unmatched gifts on display, all the while God strategically allowed his cooking mechanics to make room for him in the process.


“I spent majority of my life serving my country while doing what I loved most, which was cooking,” Flakes said. “I knew back then that it would be no problem to transition back into civilian life with my knowledge, skills, and abilities to cook, manage, and market. Somewhere along the way, I noticed that my military background and higher education was not accepted by my food industry.”


Still, Flakes had gone to great to lengths to diligently set himself apart from others in what undoubtedly is an ever-so-competitive, had executed the essential strategy to ensure that his long-awaited dream as a globally-acclaimed chef would become a reality.

Given the remarkably brilliant strides he’s made throughout the years, it’s safe to assume he’s well on his way to reaping global success in his selected industry.

Thanks in large part to the constant guidance and wisdom of his grandmother, Flakes has been blessed mightily to walk in her massive footsteps, having established a well-respected professional culinary resume that’s shaping to garner more of a global impact.

Sustained success, to put it more precisely.

“This venture has indirectly exposed me to people from over the world,” Flakes said. “Serving in the military as a military chef was the foundation of my culinary journey, which led to the exploration of people, places, and products. As a travel insider, I began establishing relationships with people from around the country.”

Interestingly, Flakes acknowledged that Southern Oregon will always hold a place in his heart, considering it is the originally birthplace of Marco’s Pepper Grill.

Even during his stint in the military, Flakes was guilty of never having allowed his culinary skills to fall by the wayside. Even while serving his country, in fact, there he was, putting his immeasurable and unmatched gifts on display, all the while God strategically allowed his mechanics to make room for him in the process.

“There has never been one place in particular my business has exposed me to besides where Marco’s Pepper Grill was founded and established,” Flakes said.

Besides having evolved as one of Houston’s finest chefs of this modern-day culinary era, Flakes has since adopted more of an entrepreneurship role in his profession, a development that has also given way to his rise as an author.

“I’ve written my book,” said Flakes, who authored the newly-produced written work entitled, ‘The Inspiring Chef: A Memoir.’ “I’ve come to realize that my reach is becoming global, while my food continues to influence palates of my guests locally.”

“I’ve written my book,” said Flakes, who authored the newly-produced written work entitled, ‘The Inspiring Chef: A Memoir.’ “I’ve come to realize that my reach is becoming global, while my food continues to influence palates of my guests locally.”

To his credit, Flakes certain boasts the credentials, which have greatly enabled him to function mightily in his element.

He holds a Bachelor of Science in Culinary Management and Hospitality from the Art Institutes of California-Sacramento and a Master of Public Health from Argosy University.

Also, he earned a Graduate Certificate in Nonprofit Management from Texas A&M University.


SAVE THE DATE

As for what he loves the most about the sustained success of his venture, Flakes said:

“I love serving my guests and watching their five senses become paralyzed by my creations. I call it my culinary crave concept, where I methodically concoct ingredients that later has a date with their five senses. I also enjoy owning my own business with the flexibility to spend time with my family. Ultimately, time and personal freedom has been something I’ve longed for and I consider myself blessed this far.”

So far, so good for a well-publicized culinary career of a true cooking pro, whose best and brightest days are well ahead of him.

So stay tuned, world. And remember the name: Marcus Flakes.

“I’ve been cooking since the age of 10,” Flakes told Making Headline News this week. “I used to watch my grandmother cook and we’d talk about cooking.”

Kansas City author Annisa Davis-Jackson acquires ‘divine healing’ in a book that took roughly a decade to assemble


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

GOD’S PLAN — Much to Annisa Davis-Jackson’s delight, her divine healing had eventually come wrapped up in the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events.”

Annisa Davis-Jackson tried all she could to provide a thorough explanation for why it was absolutely essential that she make her authorship debut.

“It was an issue that buried so deep in my heart, never to be brought back up,” Davis-Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “And somehow, it finds me.”
Amongst the things about which Davis-Jackson had ultimately discovered was that God was very much in the midst of what undoubtedly was an integral part of the divine purpose for which she was created.
“The events that the most high brought me through were simply undeniable, bizarre…and extraordinary circumstances,” Davis-Jackson explained. “I was being used to unveil a truth I felt I was not equipped for. In the process of my obedience, I gained supernatural strength, which was essential to my healing.”
Much to Davis-Jackson’s delight, her divine healing had eventually come wrapped up in the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events.”

A spiritually-empowering written work that essentially a decade in the making, Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” depicts the life of her father, Annise Davis Jr., whose prosperous and well-publicized football career ironically was destined for greatness, yet his life cut short amid his untimely murder on Christmas Eve in 1987.

Mired by tragedy, or a chain reaction of events that hovered over his entire family emotionally and spiritually, this author writes, Annise Davis Jr.’s children subsequently grew up without knowing the truth until a spiritual revelation was given to Annisa Davis-Jackson, the family’s beloved middle daughter.

It was Davis-Jackson, in fact, who vividly discovered that such turbulence in her life were destined by what she describes as a “powerful divine design,” one that would suddenly uncover and unveil a truth, she writes.

As Davis-Jackson explained, this truth was hidden under “an ocean of lies,” drowned with deception, and the corruption of wrongful convictions behind the true circumstances surrounding her father’s death.

Interestingly, as she walked into such a tumultuous season, it was later revealed that her mission was to seek all truth, which would later turn into a spiritual journey, revealing the Glory of The Most High, she acknowledges.

REMEMBERING DAD — A spiritually-empowering written work that essentially a decade in the making, Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” depicts the life of her father, Annise Davis Jr., whose prosperous and well-publicized football career ironically was destined for greatness, yet his life cut short amid his untimely murder on Christmas Eve in 1987.

An ex-college and NFL football standout, Annise Davis Jr., starred at the University of Missouri of the then-Big 8 Conference. Consequently, he was later enjoyed a professional stint after being drafted by the Pittsburgh Steelers.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Davis-Jackson began assembling her book in January 2009, a project that was finally published on November 30, 2018.

For Davis-Jackson, composing “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” was very much worth the length of time invested into this essential written document.


“After battling political districts concerning the cold case, (it was) later uncovered to be an unsolved murder of my father for reopening,” Davis-Jackson recalled. “It became evident that emergency healing was needed for others who have experienced similar loses and injustices.”


Interestingly, Davis-Jackson deemed it necessary to emphasize why her new book is synonymous to what she describes as a “mother of all bombs.”  “Its content is beyond average and will become a blueprint to others finding themselves and having the courage to stand up for what’s truth,” Davis-Jackson said. “In the pursuit to truth, they find healing within.”

To her credit, the feedback since the release of Davis-Jackson’s “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” has been nothing short of remarkable.


REALITY SETTING IN 

Mired by tragedy, or a chain reaction of events that hovered over his entire family emotionally and spiritually, this author writes, Annise Davis Jr.’s children subsequently grew up without knowing the truth until a spiritual revelation was given to Annisa Davis-Jackson, the family’s middle daughter.

“Very, very positive from anyone who learns or reads the story,” said Davis-Jackson, adding that other books — “a series of books all branched on to Memoirs Of A Broken Side,” she said — are surely forthcoming.

“I hear the word ‘phenomenal’ from everyone who reads. It gives the reader a crash course on how to recognize signs and symbols and the spiritual signs that are given to us daily to complete task to stay away from harm, etc.”

For Davis-Jackson, composing “Memoirs Of A Broken Side: Based On True Events” was very much worth the length of time invested into this essential written document.

Generally, Davis-Jackson reiterated that the presentation and promotion of her book has come full circle, largely because of her resiliency in following the spirit of the Most High.

“The anointing through the investigation allowed me to gain the attention from political sources, prosecutors, and judges,” Davis-Jackson said. “Because the story is so powerful.”

Not to mention a constant page-turner for anyone who possesses this life-enhancing book.
