Atlanta-area businesswoman Verna V. Nickelberry functioning fervently in her ‘God taught’ endeavor

GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

DESTINY STEPS — Currently of a resident in the Atlanta area, Verna V. Nickelber is owner and chief executive officer of VeMaShe Enterprise LLC, her up-and-coming media company whose featured entity is product is ODINARY PEOPLE Magazine (or OPM), which went into full operations in 2008.

DALLAS — With all due respect to Verna V. Nickelberry, she essentially had it wrong.

Consider, for instance, when during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, Nickelberry, whose family is originally from Mississippi, spoke about her strong ties to Memphis.

“We moved to Memphis when I was five years old, Nickelberry said. “So Memphis is all I know. It’s home.”
Wrong.
With all due respect to Nickelberry, while she has an immeasurable connection to Memphis, credit her remarkably compelling strides as a notable businesswoman as being arguably the pivotal factor that has given way to her attracting more of a national presence through her endeavors.

OH TASTE AND SEE 

THIS IS THE LORD’S DOING — Although Nickelberry is pretty adamant that her publication essentially “found me,” amongst the things about which she’s thoroughly convinced is that her flourishing enterprise undoubtedly has been endorsed by God.

Currently of a resident in the Atlanta area, Nickelberry is owner and chief executive officer of VeMaShe Enterprise LLC, her up-and-coming media company whose featured entity is product is ODINARY PEOPLE Magazine (or OPM), which went into full operations in 2008.

In addition to running the day-to-day operations of her business, Nickelberry is an accomplished writer, having authored two books: “He Wrote The Script…Just Follow It!: Applying Biblical Principals for Entrepreneurial Success” and “Blue Skies & Green Grass: A 30 Day Affirmation Journal.”

Also, she were amongst 14 women who collectively wrote the book entitled, “Cultivating Your It Factor: 14 Must Haves  To Discover, Define and Refine Your Signature Brand.”

Though her venture accommodates people of all ages and ethnic groups nationwide, Nickelberry emphasized she’s especially blessed to have been afforded the golden opportunity to bask in the glory of her God-given element.

Her children’s book, “The Adventures Of KayKay” will jumpstart a 12-book series and is scheduled to be released this summer, she said.

“I wish I had a great story for you, but the truth is my business found me,” Nickelberry said.

With all due respect once again, Nickelberry — displaying a such resiliency and poise as only she could — certainly has an inspiring story to tell, considering VeMaShe Enterprise emerged courtesy of a rather unique combination that’s comprised of her name as well as the names of her two sons, which intriguingly means “family, unite, and love.”

“I’m wanting to create a family company that my son would work at,” Nickelberry said of her business venture, which has been in existence for approximately 10 years.

Although Nickelberry is pretty adamant that her publication essentially “found me,” amongst the things about which she’s thoroughly convinced is that her flourishing enterprise undoubtedly has been endorsed by God.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — With all due respect to Nickelberry, while she has an immeasurable connection to Memphis, credit her remarkably compelling strides as a notable businesswoman as being arguably the pivotal factor that has given way to her attracting more of a national presence through her endeavors.

“It is an assignment — a vision — from God which took place in 2005, but was not birth until 2008,” Nickelberry explained. “We’ve been at it for 10 years.”

And what a memorable decade it has been for this progressive, thriving businesswoman, who doesn’t shy away from the notion that God is the Focal Point of a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Interestingly, Nickelberry’s magazine is widely known for hosting an annual business prayer breakfast, as well as its annual OPM Servant Awards, an event that customarily honors individuals, non-profit organizations, and corporations, particularly for their valiant contributions to communities.

This year’s OPM Servant Awards are scheduled for  September 20 in nearby Conyer, Georgia.

In addition to running the day-to-day operations of her business, Nickelberry is an accomplished writer, having authored two books: “He Wrote The Script…Just Follow It!: Applying Biblical Principals for Entrepreneurial Success” and “Blue Skies & Green Grass: A 30 Day Affirmation Journal.”

“We also give out a life time achievement award,” said Nickelberry, alluding to her event’s The Sylvester Bowens Life Time Achievement, which is named in honor of her father.

Though her venture accommodates people of all ages and ethnic groups nationwide, Nickelberry emphasized she’s especially blessed to have been afforded the golden opportunity to bask in the glory of her God-given element.

“I enjoy the freedom doing what I love,” Nickelberry said. “OPM is an inspirational magazine, so we get to share the word of God and some great testimonies of God’s miracles and blessings. This is actually one of the segments in the magazine.”

With all due respect once again, Nickelberry, displaying a such resiliency and poise — certainly has an inspiring story to tell, considering VeMaShe Enterprise emerged courtesy of a rather unique combination that’s comprised of her name as well as the najes of her two sons, which intriguingly means “family, unite, and love.”

Although Nickelberry admittedly was reluctant to go into business for herself, she’s overwhelmingly giddy she had ultimately answered God’s Voice by exercising her faith in ways unimaginable. “I answered the call from God and, nevertheless, I moved forward,” Nickelberry said with a smile. “I’m God taught.”

And, for that reasons, Memphis isn’t all she knows.

With all due respect to this talented, gifted businesswoman, she’s fully persuaded that even while walking fervently in her divine purpose, the best is yet to come.

“If I can but inspire one person while I’m on my daily journey, I would have done my part in bring a smile to someone’s face and joy to their heart,” Nickelberry said.

Capping off a brilliantly, empowering story, one she sensed she never had to tell.

But God Whom, much to her delight, had the final say.

Shawonia Thomas is destined to make a difference, is determined to have a monumental impact amongst youths all across America.

Even if it means going to great lengths to start a nonprofit organization that will greatly enable her to fulfill her lofty mission.

“Our future youths are at a high risk of suicide, school dropouts, and gang activities,” Thomas, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked to explain how her competitive drive in life fueled her desire to start a notable business venture.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — To her credit, Shawonia Thomas, a native of Flint, Michigan, deemed it essential to establish Jabez Society Chambers Incorporated, an internationally-acclaimed nonprofit institution mission that centered largely on mentoring, educating, and enhancing the social and personal lives of our youth.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

According to a June 2018 report by The Washington Post, suicide rates rose in all but one state between 1999 and 2016, with increases seen across age, gender, race, and ethnicity, as cited in a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition, the organization discovered that of more than half of all deaths in 27 states, the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives.

All things considered, these are amongst the reasons Thomas has become especially committed to doing whatever is necessary to impact lives — one life at a time.

“First and foremost, it is because we are commanded to love one another,” said Thomas, explaining why it is imperative that we esteem others highly than ourselves. “Secondly, I want to be the change I want to see. Last but not least, I love seeing the growth and the joy that comes from giving and healing.”


Having been nurturing and mentoring youths for more than 15 years, Thomas’ nonprofit organization caters mostly girls ranging in ages of 10 to 16, although she emphasized that her Family Empowerment Project accommodates families nationwide.

For what it’s worth, her rise to starting a worthy nonprofit all began with a rather lofty vision, one that essentially was accompanied by God’s endorsement.

After all, she’s destined to make a difference, determined to have a monumental impact amongst youth all across America.

“After God gave me the vision, I was inspired by Miss Natalie from another nonprofit, 4 Girls, Inc., Charles Reese, Apostle Okose Emmanuel, my prophet, and Rev. Mother Ayomide of Lagos, Nigeria, my mentor,” said Thomas, whose inteniary includes an upcoming speaking engagement at schools in Ghana and Nigeria later this year.

Atlanta best-selling author Shawonia Thomas making her presence felt in another fascinating book

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SHAWONIA THOMAS  


Shortly after midday EST on Thursday, Shawonia Thomas took to her Facebook timeline, where she staged a rather intriguing, spirited image that displayed a familiar Biblical passage.

The scripture reddish colored image reads: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

For the record, Thomas, a devout woman of faith, deemed it necessary to share before her 500-plus social media followers such an empowering passage for a variety reasons.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — That Atlanta-area author Shawonia Thomas steadfastly obeyed the Voice of God by joining forces with Flint, Michigan businesswoman Precious Brown and a few other accomplished writers to assemble the spiritually empowering book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” has benefited her mightily, particularly as she continues to share with the masses how God has strategically moved of her behalf for such a time as now.

“I was given the vision about a year ago,” Thomas told Making Headline News during an interview this week. “I was introduced to the offer of a collaboration of writing with some awesome women, then instantly recognized the opportunity and took advantage. I saw where telling my story would help liberate my soul and help enlighten someone else’s healing process.”

That Thomas steadfastly obeyed the Voice of God by joining forces with Flint, Michigan businesswoman Precious Brown and a few other accomplished writers to assemble the spiritually empowering book, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” has benefited her mightily, particularly as she continues to share with the masses how God has strategically moved of her behalf for such a time as now.

A book that is forwarded by Brown, the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is scheduled to be officially released in December.

Having begun contributing to this awe-inspiring book in May 2018, Thomas recently completed her segment which, to her credit, is a testament of her immeasurable body of work as an author.

Prior to “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” Thomas made her presence felt when she co-authored the best-selling book entitled, “Transition: Ashes Emanating Beauty.”

As for her latest project, Thomas emphasized, among other things, that had it not been for the Lord, Who is on her side, there’s no telling where she’d be.

By and large, while such a suggestion is synonymous to the words of a familiar classic gospel song, Thomas would be the first to admit that, well, she’s a living testimony.

DESTINY UNFOLDED — A book that is forwarded by Brown, the founder and CEO of Kilgore Publishing, “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises” is scheduled to officially release in December.

“The divine message is how God carried me through the abandonment period in my life and my unspoken rules and steps of how I survived as a young lady in a foreign land,” Thomas,  native of Flint who resides in Atlanta, said. “My purpose is to mentor and guide our youth girls through their destinies and help them recognize their gifts and talents to value, to respect and to nurture them.”

As Thomas vividly recalls, God essentially revealed to her in a dream that He was positioning her to form a kingdom-based, life-enhancing connection not just with Brown and Co., but other women in the Body of Christ.

Much to her delight, one spiritually enhancing development had ultimately led to another.

Yep. That’s just like God.

“God gave me the vision in a dream of my divine purpose with young women,” Thomas said. “In my lack of guidance, I discovered my strength, and my experiences in that lost period inspired and led me to create a nonprofit (organization) called Jabez Society Chambers, Inc. Jabez was a son of a woman born out of pain in the Bible, and he then changed his story by praying to God to enlarge his territory and take the pain away and he was granted his prayer.”

Prior to “I Rise, Living Beyond The Bruises,” Thomas made her presence felt when she co-authored the best-selling book entitled, “Transition: Ashes Emanating Beauty.”

As for sharing her story in her latest written document, Thomas said her great deal of transparency was extremely vital as it relates to appropriately getting her message across to those who need to read and hear of it.

“I believe that I’ve gained a level of respect and trust by telling my story, because it will allow destinies to be fulfilled, including my own,” Thomas said. “This book will be a tool that will hopefully encourage someone that they are not alone and no matter the circumstances, (they must) keep walking and don’t give up.”

While her Jabez Society organization appears to be her primary focus in the meantime, Thomas has not ruled out the notion that she will compose other books.

WHEN GOD SHOWS UP — As Thomas vividly recalls, God essentially revealed to her in a dream that He was positioning her to form a kingdom-based, life-enhancing connection not just with Brown and Co., but other women in the Body of Christ.

“Although I am sharing my story, that does not exempt me from learning more on how to overcome,” said Thomas, who is schedule to be on hand for Brown’s I Rise Women’s Empowerment Conference in Flint in April 2019, during which she will be a presenter and be a part of a book signing.

“Life is forever learning and teaching me that you must be diligent in my faith walk with the Creator because life bows to commanders,” Thomas continued. “Keeping my joy of the Lord is my strength and seeking Him first so that everything else will be added is my mission statements that lead me through my destiny beyond the bruises.”

Because after all, God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.”

Atlanta author Sylinda Mumphery on her latest inspiring book: ‘I want to see every woman win’

Photo Credits: Jay Pray Supreme Team Photography and DJ Spence Photography

 

Five and counting.

That is how many awe-inspiring books accomplished empowerment extraordinaire Sylinda Mumphery has written over the past 12 years.

KICK BACK AND READ THIS — Atlanta-area author Sylinda Mumphery’s latest book is entitled, The Heartbeat Of A Woman,” an inspirational and informative written document that made its much-anticipated presence on the market Mother’s Day weekend.

Her latest: The Heartbeat Of A Woman, an inspirational and informative written document that made its much-anticipated presence on the market Mother’s Day weekend.

For Mumphery, a native of Cordele, Georgia who resides in Atlanta, her latest book was composed in large part because her primary desire is for women to understand that their hearts are delicate and that they must be careful of whom they allow to hold it.

“When we were created, our hearts became one with God and it is the most precious gift on the inside of us,” Mumphery told Making Headline News this week. “Everyone is not capable or equipped to carry the weight, power or the magnitude of love that flows from our hearts.”

Having grasped the vision last September to produce her latest book, Mumphery needed just a few months to complete The Heartbeat Of A Woman, a rather brief project that was released less than a year after her previous book, The Secrets Within.

Widely known amongst her peers as “Sylinda D,” Mumphery is owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC and is widely known as the founder of Removing The Bandages Women Movement.

Besides The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within, Mumphery is the mastermind behind the books: Malcolm And Peanut, a children’s book that was released in 2006), In The Name Of Love, a book that designed for teens that was released that same year, and Heal My Private Parts, a project that hit the market in 2014.

ATTRACTING MEDIA COVERAGE — For Mumphery, a native of Cordele, Georgia who resides in Atlanta, her latest book was composed in large part because her primary desire is for women to understand that their hearts are delicate and that they must be careful of whom they allow to hold it.

As for her latest book, Mumphery is extremely appreciative of the favorable feedback she’s garnered in such a brief timeframe since its ceremonious release.

“I have received positive feedback so far,” Mumphery said. “Several women have told me that they can relate to the chapters and have found themselves in at least one or two (occurrences).”

Asked in what ways is her latest book a part of the purpose for which God has created her, Mumphery, without hesitation, said: “There is so much that I can say in regard to this question.  I have experienced a lot of heartbreak in my lifetime; however I now understand that my pain was for my purpose. This book speaks of several types of heartbeats and I can relate to each one.”

STARTING LINEUP — Besides The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within, Mumphery is the mastermind behind the books: Malcolm And Peanut, a children’s book that was released in 2006), In The Name Of Love, a book that designed for teens that was released that same year, and Heal My Private Parts, a project that hit the market in 2014.

Which, as a result, practically sums up why Mumphery is thoroughly persuaded that The Heartbeat Of A Woman is especially prevalent for such a time as now?

All things considered, there mere fact that she’s conquered and outlasted her assortment of hurtful encounters, she’s destined to help others follows suit.

“I want to see every woman win and be the best that she was created to be,” Mumphery said. “I realized that if I continued to hold onto my pain and carry it on the inside of my heart, then I would never be a complete woman or walk in my purpose.  I went through the fire and endured the pain, so that I could reach back and pull my sisters out, to let them know that even though their heart may have experienced trauma, they did not flat line and that they too can make it.”

With a few scheduled public appearances, during which she will promote and speak in detail about her new book, Mumphery has announced that Part 2 of The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within are presently in the works, as well as “many more books to come,” she acknowledged.

Besides being a notable and accomplished author, Mumphery is a mentor, motivational speaker, and an Atlanta-based radio talk show host.

MAKING HER ROUNDS — With a few scheduled public appearances, during which she will promote her new book, Mumphery has announced that Part 2 of The Heartbeat Of A Woman and The Secrets Within are presently in the works, as well as “many more books to come,” she acknowledged.

As for her latest project, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that offering a great deal of transparency, coupled with viewing obstacles from God’s perspective, have benefited her mightily as a longtime and thriving author.

Five books and counting.

For the record.

“We must guard our hearts and be careful that we don’t allow others to cause it to bleed,” Mumphery said. “When we discover who we are and what’s on the inside of us, then we will understand that not everyone is worthy of entrance into the place that produces life within us.”

Georgia author Shameka Pointer joint authors book with fiancée; is mastermind behind five other books

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves. (Philippians 2:3 NIV)

 

Shameka Pointer and her fiancée, Al Newell, first crossed paths in May 2017.

GODLY POWER COUPLE — An Atlanta-area couple who doesn’t shy away from the notion that God undoubtedly is the Focal Point of their courtship, Shameka Pointer and Al Newell co-authored the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Dating To Marry,” a newly-released, informative written documents that recalls this couple’s assortment of interpersonal relational experiences.

With God, their Helper, leading the way, they’ve since wasted little time collectively becoming engaged in a rather unique activity, one that figures to impact and enrich the lives of an array of couples, most notably those whose relationship is on the right path to marriage.

An Atlanta-area couple who doesn’t shy away from the notion that God undoubtedly is the Focal Point of their courtship, Pointer and Newell co-authored the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Dating To Marry,” a newly-released, informative written document that recalls this couple’s assortment of interpersonal relational experiences.

“Dating may seem unimportant but in reality, but it is the foundation that you set for marriage,” said a spokesperson in a detailed synopsis of Pointer and Newell’s book at http://www.lulu.com/. “Whomever you set out to date will more likely help you decide if you really want to date this person to marry them.

All things considered, Pointer, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, emphasized that it was absolutely essential to compose Dating To Marry, in large because the modern-day church has, in some aspects, shied away from — as she calls it — “getting down and dirty” to do the necessary things that will keep the sanctity of marriage intact.

“(We’re trying) to help people be more open-minded to living a Christian life and not just saying you are a Christian, bearing no fruit or showing no signs,” said Pointer, explaining the purpose of Dating To Marry. “In this book, we talk about the importance of dating with a purpose and not just dating for self-gain and irrelevant reasons.”

To her distinctly unique credit, it’s safe to assume that Pointer can appropriately be labeled as a serial author, of sorts, considering this native of Town Creek, Alabama is responsible for having written five other compelling books.

In June 2012, she witnessed the release of her book entitled, “Being Free And Staying Free: The Natural And Spiritual Laws of Being Free At All Cost.”

A 32-page project that can be purchased at Amazon.com, Being Free And Staying Free demonstrates different ways one could be gripped in bondage.

“Our minds can’t even imagine how many obstacles come into our lives to hinder our growth and accomplishments,” Pointer explains. “How many times have we asked ourselves, ‘Why can’t I get passed this situation?’ or ‘Why does it seem like I’m going in circles?’ Being Free And Staying Free is here to open up your understanding on how to be free and stay free in your life.”

And then there is Poems Of Courage, a 34-page book Pointer released in July 2013.

In this book, Pointer shares her immense gifts through poetry, recalling among other things, her slew of struggles with life’s situations that, at one point in time, seemed insurmountable and downright unbearable.

But God…

“As I wrote the book, the stronger I became,” Pointer said. “This book will give you the strength you need to carry out life’s sometimes difficult situations. It’s full of strength, encouragement, and hope. It will bless you without a doubt, so be blessed.”

Not to be outdone, Pointer authored a two-part series written document entitled, Surviving The System: The Life of A Foster Child and Surviving The System: The Life of A Foster Child, Part 2: An Emotional Healing Guide.

A book that made its way to the market in April 2017, Surviving The System: The Life of A Foster Child depicts the life of a foster child, with a special emphasis on opening the eyes of people when it comes to the slew of emotions and behaviors of that of a foster child.

Also, in March 2016, Pointer’s book, When The Head Refuses To Pray: The Body Withers And Dies, was officially released and has since has an immediate impact amongst her reading audience.

A 48-page project, When The Head Refuses To Pray: The Body Withers And Dies recalls Pointer’s tumultuous, chaotic experiences, particularly what she deems her “abusive unequally yoked marriage” she was in for 10 years.

BUY WHEN THE HEAD REFUSES TO PRAY HERE: https://www.amazon.com/When-Head-Refuses-Pray-Withers/dp/1530776937

“There was no consistent prayer in the marriage from the head, (during) which I did not survive,” Pointer explained. “So it talks about the importance of prayer and fasting together, but also as the head.”

YOU GO, GIRL!!!! To her distinctly unique credit, it’s safe to assume that Pointer can appropriately be labeled as a serial author, considering this native of Town Creek, Alabama is responsible for having written five other books.

An accomplished writer whose reputation is such that she is extremely passion about enhancing interpersonal relational skills amongst couples who seek to establish — and retain — healthy relationships, Pointer said it is by the grace of God, coupled with the divine calling on her life that she’s steadfastly walking in her purpose as an accomplished author.

Not to mention a devout woman of faith.

“The good, bad, and ugly times are what made me who I am today,” said Pointer, alluding specifically to her book, Surviving The System: The Life of A Foster Child.

In actuality, it seems that such an intriguing declaration is prevalent to the overall landscape of her life, a trend that has greatly fueled her desire to exercise her faith as an accomplished and gifted serial author.

Atlanta businessman Kent Osbourne defies odds as high school dropout, emerges as a successful entrepreneur

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)

 

Might as well go ahead and get this part of Kent Osbourne II’s testimony out of the way.

He’s a high school dropout.

DRAMATIC COMEBACK FOR THE AGES — A native of Melbourne, Florida who currently resides in Atlanta, Kent Osbourne has emerged from being a high school dropout to becoming the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

“I dropped out of school in the ninth grade,” the 40-year-old Osbourne told Making Headline News during an exclusive weekend interview.

As if that wasn’t enough to shakeup and rattle the overall landscape of Osbourne’s young life, his bolting high school prematurely had eventually given way to a flurry of other issues, considering he wound up becoming a convicted felon amid what he describes as “all kinds off oppositions,” not to mention what he referred to as a slew of “roadblocks, mountains, storms, disappointments, and letdowns.”

Still, even in the wake of his assortments of obstacles — a host of problematic occurrences that would have caused some to throw in the towel — a rather dramatic sequence of events arose of the life of this resilient young man whom, all things considered, was determined to defy the urge to quit.

How could that possibly be for a high school dropout whose decision to put his education by the wayside was supposed to have to disrupt his ability to succeed, reduce his effectiveness, thus live and dwell on the larger side of God?

“Failure was not an option,” Osbourne explained, fielding the question as if he expected it. “I was determined to succeed.”

Osbourne, in fact, recalled vividly those days during which no would hire which, truth be told, was quite understandable, considering he didn’t possess a high school diploma behind his name.

Still, just like God, he had other ideas.

“When no one wanted to hire me, I said I would start my own business and hire myself, so that’s what I did,” Osbourne said.

Much to his delight, he had done just, having become owner of not one, not two, but three businesses, a trend that has benefited him mightily throughout the years.

A native of Melbourne, Florida who currently resides in Atlanta, Osbourne is the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

WHAT ABOUT KENT OSBOURNE? www.kentosbourne.com

HOW YA LIKE ME NOW? Even in the wake of his assortments of obstacles — a host of problematic occurrences that would have caused some to throw in the towel — a rather dramatic sequence of events arose of the life of this resilient young man whom, all things considered, was determined to defy the urge to quit.

A little more than two decades removed from having dropped out of school, it’s safe to assume that “proud” undoubtedly is the operative word, particularly as it pertains to recalling Osbourne’s unlikely success story, given many would believe that this thriving entrepreneur was set up to fail miserably.

Still, just like God, he had other ideas.

“I always have been independent since a youth,” Osbourne said. “I never wanted a handout.”

For that reason, he sensed that the most logical remedy was to turn to selling drugs a reasonable outlet to survive and make ends meet.

“I became a big time drug dealer,” said Osbourne, who also started a record label labeled entitled, ‘Rapid Fire Records 2 LLC.’”

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM — Even after being released from prison at 22 years of age, Osbourne was not to be outdone. Heck, if nothing else, he was determined not to become so consumed with the dreaded street, a trend that could have very well sent him back to prison, or perhaps to his grave all too soon.

Even after being released from prison at 22 years of age, Osbourne was not to be outdone. Heck, if nothing else, he was determined not to become so consumed with the dreaded street, a trend that could have very well sent him back to prison, or perhaps to his grave all too soon.

“Even when I was in the streets at 22, I was always a boss, whether it was selling drugs or running my record label,” Osbourne explained. “I’ve always had that entrepreneur spirit.”

To his credit, the only things that has changed with regard to exemplifying an “entrepreneur spirit” is that Osbourne is generating his income the old-fashioned way.

He’s earning it.

Legally, mind you.

“When the going got tough, the tough got going,” said Osbourne, whose business venture caters to people of all ages. “Now that I have God on my side Who gives the increase. Nothing can stop me from accomplishing my goals. As long as I keep God first, I’m going to accomplish so much more. This is only the beginning.”

Today, unlike never before, Osbourne doesn’t shy away from the notion that his primary mission through his business ventures is to provide service to people, save souls, touch lives, and also to motivate, inspire, and empower others to live to their fullest potential.

“I was inspired to do all this by a man in prison,” Osbourne said. “He told me if I wanted to be successful I needed to seek God. Once I listened to this man who came from the same dark place I did, I went to church in prison like he told me to, and the rest was history.”

It is, by all accounts, because he heeded some worthy advice and counsel while behind bars that Osbourne is yet walking in the divine purpose for which God created him.

SET ASIDE FOR GOD’S USE — Today, unlike never before, Osbourne doesn’t shy away from the notion that his primary mission through his business ventures is to provide service to people, save souls, touch lives, and also to motivate, inspire, and empower others to live to their fullest potential.

On April 19, for example, he will be afforded the opportunity to share of his life-enhancing testimonies during a Houston-based correctional institution black tie event.

To his credit, his itinerary is starting to fill up mightily, given he’s scheduled to make public appearances in several places across the country through the end of the year.

So you might wanna book him now while you can.

“What I like most about being my business is that I’m able to make my own decisions, work when I want, work how long I want, work as hard as I want, make as much money as I want, and don’t have to worry about anyone telling me what I can, and what I can’t do,” Osbourne said. “You have the same ability I have if you would just transform your mind, and change the way you think.”

Much like he did some two decades ago.

Look at him today, living out his dreams, thus walking in the purpose for which God created him.

So much for dropping out of high school way back when.

Atlanta-area businesswoman Alandria L. Lloyd defies seemingly insurmountable odds, organizes a kingdom-advancing ministry

WALKING IN VICTORY — In spite of arguably the darkest and most disheartening chapters of her life, Atlanta-area businesswoman Alandria L. Lloyd, a devout woman of immeasurable faith, found peace and solace and spirital comfort in Almighty God, a life-enhancing trend that eventually fueled her desire to establish Change Agent Outreach Ministries, LLC.

There’s no other way to put it.

Alandria L. Lloyd, as she forthrightly tells it, was about to lose her mind at one point in time.

But God…

“After losing two children so close together, I was on the verge of losing my mind,” Lloyd, a 33-year-old Atlanta-area businesswoman, told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week. “But God kept me.”

Indeed He did.

For instance, He kept her in the wake of Lloyd having become a teenage mother for the first time at the tender age of age of 15, a development that sadly for her, resulted in the death of her premature born child after just two weeks of having given birth.

He kept her mightily approximately a year later after Lloyd had become pregnant once again, this time at 16 years of age, an occurrence that ultimately had given way to a teary-eyed and dejected young mother being left to bury an infant child yet again — all in a such short time frame.

PAYING IT FORWARD — A newly-erected ministry Lloyd founded in November 2017 and is powered by her A’Maya’s Army nonprofit organization, Change Agent Outreach Ministries’ chief objective is centered on serving single mothers, particularly those who have suffered the lost a child (or of children).

“She was stillborn,” Lloyd recalled.

PAIN WITH A PURPOSE — By and large, Lloyd, whom admittedly “always had dreams the size of Texas,” doesn’t shy away from the notion that she customarily uses her pain as the spiritual fuel to catapult her to her purpose.

“My ministry is encouraging and mentoring mothers who have experienced a similar loss,” Lloyd, a native of Natalbany, Louisiana said.

Widely known as an accomplished author, mentor, and motivational speaker, Lloyd credits the perseverance, coupled with the bend-but-don’t-break faith she had to capture amid her babies’ deaths as the driving force that greatly enabled her to start what is shaping up to become a thriving, kingdom-advancing ministry.

“My competitive drive in life propelled me in my business, because I know that if I don’t go out and get it, no one else will do it for me,” Lloyd said. “My experience influenced me to start a ministry that serves that particular population.”

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Widely known as an accomplished author, mentor, and motivational speaker, Lloyd credits the perseverance, coupled with the bend-but-don’t-break faith she had to capture amid her babies’ deaths as the driving force that greatly enabled her to start what is shaping up to become a thriving, kingdom-advancing ministry.

By and large, Lloyd, whom admittedly “always had dreams the size of Texas,” doesn’t shy away from the notion that she customarily uses her pain as the spiritual fuel to catapult her to her purpose.

The divine purpose for which God created her, that is.

“It is imperative that I encourage others daily, because I try to be to others what I wished I had for myself during my darkest seasons,” Lloyd said. “I inspire others, because I know what it is like to feel alone, abandoned, and misunderstood.”

Widely known as a woman of beauty who’s armed with an array of talents, Lloyd is a proud graduate of Delgado Community College, New Orleans, where she majored in General Studies.

Besides mentoring youths, she routinely assists aspiring authors to self-publish their books.

“My business caters to women of all ages,” Lloyd said. “Mostly millenials, but the ages vary.”

DEFYING ALL ODDS — Widely known as a woman of beauty who’s armed with an array of talents, Lloyd is a proud graduate of Delgado Community College, New Orleans, where she majored in General Studies.

As for her itinerary, Lloyd has a speaking engagement scheduled for January 27 in nearby Hammond, Louisiana during at a women’s empowerment brunch.

And, just recently she released a prayer journal entitled, “Fasting For Change,” an awe-inspiring written document that encourages people to incorporate fasting into their lives and to document their experiences during the fast.

“I try my best to uplift those who have been beaten down by the circumstances of life,” Lloyd said.

Because in case you haven’t gotten the memo, there’s no other way to put it.

Alandria L. Lloyd, as she forthrightly tells it, was about to lose her mind at one point in time.

But God…

TRAGEDY TO TRIUMPH: Atlanta-based businessman Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. conquers pair of tear-jerking disabilities, savors long-awaited dream in the process

As it pertains to getting the most out of life by diligently maximizing his potential, Charles Jordan Coe, Jr. has two pivotal self-originated proverbs he customarily goes by.

The first one reads: A true test of leadership is whether or not one can teach what he has learned to others. If he can do so with passion, persistence and dedication, then he emerges as a true leader.

HEART OF BROTHERLY LOVE — A native of Philadelphia, Charles Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

The second one reads: There are no road maps to life. We will encounter both good times and bad times, ups and downs, success and setbacks; I do not believe in failure, but rather learning lessons. The key is how we utilize our strengths to navigate our way through this process called life. Every lesson has a hidden blessing and every blessing has a hidden lesson. You are the author of your own book. Life will serve as the ultimate guide as we create Life Chapters.

For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

“I knew early on that I wanted to establish a business and brand that focused on providing children with a well-rounded educational foundation and allowing people to become the best version of themselves,” Coe, Jr. told Making Headline News this week.

To his distinctly unique credit, he’s doing just that.

VISION DISRUPTED — At the tender age of seven, Coe, Jr. was involved in a freak accident that, ironically, occurred on his mother’s birthday, during which someone threw a rock that landed in his left eye. As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leading out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

A native of Philadelphia, Coe, Jr., is the director and chief executive officer of The Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC, a notable institution in his native establishment that is geared largely toward understanding the early stages of the childhood development process.

Such a trend, according to Coe, Jr., is considerably the most significant time in the life of any family unit as well as the most instrumental time for children, particularly as they embark upon their educational journey together, he said.

Not only that, the proverbial early stages of the childhood development process is typically a time during which children develop independence and, most of all, began to notice the world around them, Coe, Jr. acknowledged.

 

LEAST HE FORGET — For what it’s worth, there is a reason for which Coe, Jr., an Atlanta-based businessman, deemed it essential to appropriately adopt such a pair of personal slogans that, much to his delight, are synonymous to the overall landscape of his life.

Located at Philly’s 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things: “When parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

Amongst the notable reasons for this observation, Coe, Jr. said, is that children often engage in what he describes as daily meaningful activities, as well as specialized weekly projects that nurture and further develop the physical growth, social, cognitive, and emotional skills of each child within the learning center.

Moreover, Coe, Jr. said that while children typically operate on different functioning capacities, Individualized Educational Development Plans (or IEDP’s) are established by Certified Teachers to ensure a smooth educational transition as well as successful personal development. Our program welcomes and celebrates children from a variety of cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds.

“It is our belief that diversification is key as children navigate through the world around them,” Coe, Jr. explained. “Unlike other programs within the same child care arena, IKLC enhances the overall learning process by also offering human services support as well.”

A proud graduate of Philadelphia’s historic Temple University, it is, by all accounts, because of what Coe, Jr. deems a “Turning Tragedy Into Action And Triumph” encounter that has given way to his appropriately carrying out his long-awaited vision as the face of Incredible Kids Learning Center, LLC.

As the day progressed, his vision eventually worsen, thus given way to blood leaking out of his eye and ultimately causing him to lose consciousness.

“My parents could not wait for an ambulance to come and decided to rush me to St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children, where we were told that as a result of the amount of intake emergencies, I would have to wait until a bed and doctor became available,” Coe, Jr. recalled. “We couldn’t wait. My parents then rushed me to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (also known as CHOP), where I was admitted immediately.”

DREAM UNFOLDED — Located at 1807 Cottman Avenue, Incredible Kids Learning Center, according to Coe, Jr., is widely known for steadfastly operating on the premise that suggest, among other things, when parents provide their children with a solid educational support system today, they enable them to become something incredible tomorrow,” Coe, Jr. emphasized.

After surgery, doctors informed the Coes that their child’s vision was completely gone as a result of a severely damaged retina that was accompanied by a fractured nose and traumatic brain injury. As if those developments weren’t enough to his rattle his family, Coe, Jr. slipped into a coma, where he would remain for approximately 45 days.

Acknowledging he wasn’t the “same little boy” that his parents knew prior to that accident, Coe, Jr. recalled having suddenly been hampered by the mindset of that of a two-to-three-year-old.

Still, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

VICTORIOUS REGARDLESS — Despite all about which he had endured, there emerge a silver-lining to a heartbreaking story that, fortunately for Coe, Jr., eventually blossomed into a vision that would change his life — for the rest of his life.

“The loss of my vision in my left eye turned out to be a blessing in disguise, because this has propelled me to become the person that I am today,” said Coe, Jr., who’s also widely known as an accomplished motivational speaker, disabilities advocate, entrepreneur, educator, life skills wellness coach, corporate trainer, intensive clinical case manager, trauma specialist, and mentor.

“I have never used my two disabilities as an excuse, but rather as a motivator to do great things and become great. I look at it as trying to inspire and conquer the world with one eye. I aspire to inspire. Most importantly, I want to serve as a role model for other individuals with disabilities, to know that they, too, can be successful in any endeavor they decide to pursue and that they just have to believe in themselves.
