Recent NFL Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis amongst Florida businessman Dr. Casuel Pitts’ grandest supporters

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DR. CASUEL PITTS  


For Dr. Casuel Pitts, it was undoubtedly the most memorable 500 bucks someone had ever given him in his entire life.

“When I was 11 years old, my father put $500 in my hand for work that I did for his business,” Dr. Pitts recalled. “His entrepreneurship (endeavor) is what drove me to be my own boss.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR — A native of Kankakee, Illinois who was raised mostly in Brooklyn, New York, DrCasuel Pitts, 33, is owner and chief executive officer of Ultimate Discount Services INC., an Orlando, Florida-based company that was created with the everyday consumer in mind, particularly with regards to focusing on what is known as everyday unforeseen incidents that many most likely don’t plan for, according to detailed breakdown Dr. Pitts’ venture at https://udsinc.us/.

And just like that, it was — much to the delight of Dr. Pitts — a nice little stash of cash that would essentially change his life forever.

That’s because after more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

ALL STAR LINEUP — A company that went into full operations four years ago, Ultimate Discount Services INC. is widely known for accommodating consumers with things such as car accidents, dropped cell phones, traffic violations, and medical visits, just to name few.

Former NFL star and recent Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis of Baltimore Ravens is the company’s President.

And now for this extremely vital disclaimer.

DAD KNOWS BEST — After more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

“Now, let’s clear up one major misconception. We are not insurance,” said a spokesperson for Ultimate Discount Services (or USD). “We offer a unique membership platform comprised of 16 powerful services that give you that extra piece of mind when life unexpectedly happens and you’re not financially in a place to accommodate certain situations.”

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Dr. Pitts emphasized that USD headlines one of his companies.

“The core of UDS is reimbursements,” Dr. Pitts explained. “Our goal is to help people save money while educating them on how important credit, investments, and entrepreneurship are. It is important for consumers to realize that UDS is not insurance and, although we have similarities, our focus is to make sure reimbursements are received on things you cannot control.”

Interestingly, this notable businessman raises questions many consumers customarily pose daily.

“Ask yourself: When was the last time you or someone you know damaged a cell phone?” Dr. Pitts said. “What about the last time you or someone you know received some type of traffic ticket? What about medical, dental, and vision co-pays? These are just a few things that we reimburse on.”

An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

MORE THAN QUALIFIED — Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

Interestingly, Dr. Pitts’ company accommodates people nationwide and, according to him, USD is steadfastly devising ways to become a globally-acclaimed venture by the year 2020.

Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

“My personal mission for this business is what God hires me to do and that’s to make this brand, Ultimate Discount Services INC, a ministry and to help as many people as I can save money, build credit and invest smarter,” said Dr. Pitts, adding that aside from God, his grandest inspirations are his wife, Lewis, as well as the marketing consultants who play a major roll with helping build his brand.

GIVING BACK BIG TIME — An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

“I love God. I love people. I promote positive energy only,” Dr. Pitts continued. “My excitement about knowledge is similar to a kid in the candy store, and I always made myself accessible to it. The passion that I carry about business is like no other. I tend to get a bit animated and engulfed in a debate or conversation that develops on how to start, structure, or build a business. We as the human race lack more knowledge than we are aware of, and that’s why I feel that God is putting me in the position to mold me in order to help organize that category, but that is another story.”

What a difference 500 bucks have made.

Baltimore Leadership Coach JaVaughna Bevel bringing out positive change through her flourishing organization

There’s no other way to put it.

JaVaughna Bevel is all about helping implement change.

A PROVEN LEADER — A native of Baltimore, JaVaughna Bevel, 33, is widely known as a Certified Leadership Coach and the CEO of A Leading Way, which is a leadership development company, whereby she works specifically with a variety of organizations to improve their leadership capacity through professional and personal development workshops, training, and assessments, among other things.

“I love that I am able to make an impact on multiple lives by interacting with just one person,” Bevel, a Baltimore, Maryland-area businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week. “Leadership is such a complex subject and people tend to forget that leaders are servants.”

To her distinctly unique credit, Bevel has appropriately provided a whole new twist to the significance of displaying a servant’s heart.

A native of Baltimore, Bevel, 33, is widely known as a Certified Leadership Coach and the CEO of A Leading Way, which is a leadership development company, whereby she works specifically with a variety of organizations to improve their leadership capacity through professional and personal development workshops, training, and assessments, among other things.

“I provide training on diversity and cultural competency as well,” Bevel explained. “I also coach female leaders on navigating life as a woman in power with multiple roles — mother, wife, friend, sister, confident, girl boss, etc.”

In addition, Bevel’s organization offers one-on-one coaching, as well as group coaching, online training, and in-person workshops to women in power, particularly those who aspire to achieve their goals while standing firm in their success.

Interestingly, Bevel announced that she’s presently developing a youth leadership academy for girls ranging in ages 8 to 17, an institution that will focus largely on self-confidence, self-perception, team building, making positive decisions, and being a positive leader amongst their friends, she emphasized.

A TRUE PROFESSIONAL — Given the notable and immeasurable strides she’s made in such a short timeframe as a businesswoman, one would be hard-pressed to believe that it’s only been a year since Bevel deemed it essential to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

“I am able to go into an organization and remind leaders of their true purpose which, in turn, improves the outcomes for employees, customers, and partners,” Bevel said. “Better leadership equals better business practices. Better business practices equals increased revenue.”

Given the notable and immeasurable strides she’s made in such a short timeframe as a businesswoman, one would be hard-pressed to believe that it’s only been a year since Bevel deemed it essential to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

“I didn’t decide to become an entrepreneur until I was 32 years old,” Bevel said. “From the time I started working at 16, I was fine with working for someone else. I was content with receiving a reliable source of income that allotted me a 30-minute lunch break and four weeks’ vacation. I was content with being responsible for only my actions, but I was unhappy.”

SOLID TRACK RECORD — While she’s assumed the CEO label for her company for just one year, her wealth of experience in leadership, team building, communication and interpersonal skills date back more than 10 years.

All things considered, such unhappiness had ultimately fueled Bevel’s desire to devise ways to broaden her horizons, to seek and embrace new challenges, thus maximize her potential.

To her credit, she persevered diligently until she reaped favorable results.

“I needed to change everything, because I was so unfulfilled in my professional life,” Bevel explained.

A professional stint that spans more than a decade — most notably as a full time registered diagnostic medical sonographer in urology, fertility, and general sonography — Bevel undoubtedly boasts the educational credentials that have greatly enabled her to function in her element for such a time as now.

A 2002 graduate of Baltimore’s Paul Laurence Dunbar Senior High School, Bevel enrolled at nearby Coppin State University, where during a brief tenure she majored in General Science with an emphasis on Biology.

Consequently, she enrolled at Sanford Brown Institute, which led to her having acquired a certificate in sonography in 2007. Then in 2016, Bevel was awarded a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Health Sciences from The University of South Dakota.

While she’s assumed the CEO label for her company for just one year, her wealth of experience in leadership, team building, communication and interpersonal skills date back more than 10 years.

Which, as a result, goes to show there’s no other way to put it.

Bevel is all about helping implement change as evidenced by her remarkable progress within the past year.

“When I work with women leaders, it brings joy to my heart when they are finally able to live their best lives, because of something they learned from me,” said Bevel, adding that her children are amongst those — her “No. 1 reason,” she stressed — who have fueled her desire to live out her dreams. “Helping other women with lives similar to my own and (helping them) learn to navigate through the chaos and emerge on top is the ultimate gift for me. I love working with young girls to get them started early in their roles as women in power. Shaping them into young women that are prideful and purposeful in their actions. I am elated to be able to help young girls eliminate self-doubt and become, fierce, respected and positive leaders and role models.”

As for her mission for sharing — and inspiring — before the masses A Leading Way, Bevel doesn’t shy away from the notion that it all boils down to change. Positive change, that is.

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — Interestingly, Bevel announced that she’s presently developing a youth leadership academy for girls ranging in ages 8 to 17, an institution that will focus largely on self- confidence, self- perception, team building, making positive decisions, and being a positive leader amongst their friends, she emphasized.

“I want to change the way people view leadership and give them alternative ways to lead through positivity, inspiration, creativity and innovation,” Bevel said. “I became a leadership coach to transcend the barriers that have been invisibly placed on leadership roles and open people’s eyes to people centered leadership that will not only improve business but improve the well- being of others because people will feel valued, and when they feel valued they feel confident in their abilities. My mission is to inspire leaders to create more leaders.”

Especially her beloved children.

“I am a firm believer of my purpose being my passion and my reasons being my why,” said Bevel, adding that Caitlyn Davis, President of Empower Girls Inc., are amongst those who helped steer her in the right direction. “My children look to me for guidance and when they see mommy taking control of her time, her happiness and her life, they are excited. They know that mommy can spend more time with them and that they can achieve anything that they set their minds to.”

Just like she did.

There’s no other way to put it.

Baltimore area entrepreneur/investor Manny Gathers aiming to have a global impact through his professional track and field league

Just after 11 p.m. EST on Sunday, Manny Gathers staged to his Facebook timeline some pretty compelling information regarding professional sports entertainment rankings.

Surprisingly, track and field was amongst the 19 sports listed on the chart.

With a No. 3 ranking being rated “Excellent” and No. 1 ranking being rated “Poor,” track and field, as it turned out, ranked near the bottom of the pack with three No. 1’s. Nevertheless, there is a silver lining and it is called American League Track & Field.

According to Gathers, ALTF has corrected all of the issues that traditional track and field faces today. “ALTF is supreme and is the solution to elevating this Globally Recognized Sport to its rightful position,” Gathers said. 

All things considered, credit Gathers and his staff for playing some of favorable role to what undoubtedly is an ongoing upward trend, considering track and field figures to remain one of the world’s most popular sports.

An accomplished Baltimore-area entrepreneur and investor, Gathers is the mastermind by behind organizing what he describes as a “uniquely designed” Professional Track And Field League.

Widely regarded as the first of its kind, Gathers said this is the first and only professional sports league that is comprised of men and women teammates, an up-and-coming league in which many of these athletes have a share in ownership and revenue.

“(We’re) the first to have passive, fractional ownership of each team which allows middle-class investors to participate,” Gathers told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

Interesting enough, this track and field organization is the first to consolidate sponsors’ contracts into a single, short-term agreement model, Gathers said.

“I enjoy being able to meet, work with and served people of various backgrounds the most,” said Gathers, explaining what he admires the most about a uniquely distinct business he hopes will attract more of a global presence in the foreseeable future. “Being able to be a part of a diverse team is a rewarding experience.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — “My personal mission is to successfully bring track and field to life as a professional sport,” said Gathers, who acknowledged that he was inspired to organize the league by Ernest Lindo, whom he deems the Author and Founder of this business model. “By doing that, we will be creating thousands of job opportunities, a new shared ownership model, and more financial good for the communities in which we will operate.”

What’s even more intriguing is that this league strives diligently to attract talented athletes from various levels, most notably former high school and college athletes, or those who have a solid past resume in this internationally-acclaimed sport.

“As far as athletes goes, we will attract and hire graduates from the high school and collegiate levels to participate in the sport,” Gathers said.

A league that is steadily devising ways to generate more exposure, it seems that this organization is starting to become a fixture for those who have a fond interest in track and field.

Spectators included.

“Because of our unique capital raising model and debt mitigation strategies, we will draw families to our events,” said Gathers, adding that ticket prices will typically range in the neighborhood of less than $35 for regular seating — VIP seats are also available, he said — which will make his organization’s events affordable for fans and other groups. “Imagine being able to bring your babies and entire family to a professional sporting event because of affordable ticket prices.”

A native of Eutawville, South Carolina, Gathers served more than 20 years of active duty in the Marine Corps and also boasts experience in mid-level management by way of the ever-so-competitive Corporate America industry.

It is due in large part, he said, to his solid experience as an accomplished businessman that has contributed mightily in his latest venture.

“I have been conditioned to manage complex operations, high-valued budgets, and people management,” said Gathers, who holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Operations and an MBA Degree in Business Management from the University of Maryland University College. “My life experiences and world travels have allowed me to interact with people from various backgrounds, ethnicities, religions, and cultures. Strong interpersonal skills have prepared me for this next chapter of my life.”

Extensive traveling both in the military and his selected profession have greatly aided him as well.

“I have traveled around the world a couple of times and have lived in multiple countries and states within the USA,” Gathers said.

As for his mission for electing to organize an athletic venture of this magnitude, well, his primary objective is simple.

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — An accomplished Baltimore area entrepreneur and investor, Manny Gathers is the mastermind by behind organizing what he describes as a “uniquely designed” Professional Track And Field League. Widely regarded as the first of its kind, Gathers said this is the first and only professional sports league that is comprised of men women teammates, a league in which many of whom of the athletes have a share in ownership and revenue.

“My personal mission is to successfully bring track and field to life as a professional sport,” said Gathers, who acknowledged that he was inspired to organize the league by Ernest Lindo, whom he deems the Author and Founder of this business model. “By doing that, we will be creating thousands of job opportunities, a new shared ownership model, and more financial good for the communities in which we will operate.

As for the notable forthcoming additions and changes with this organization, Gathers said a number of projects are presently in the works as he and his staff continues to upgrade and enhance their brand.

“We have recently begun collaborating with the Black Men United Organization and plan on conducting strategic think-tank events to attract the brightest and ideal Leaders to run the business,” Gathers said. “Our primary goal is to target credible celebrities and business owners that share our belief that we can build a successful business model that will provide family entertainment once again, financial and business education, and wealth creation for generations to come.”

“Track and field is the oldest known sport in the world,” Gathers added. “It is popular in America and internationally. How bad do you want it is the question. When asked, ‘Manny, what is it that you need to make this thing work?’ I simply say, ‘connections’…introduce me to Colin Kaepernick, Usain Bolt, T.I., Olympic Medalists or any respectable Star that can help give birth to this Game-Changing idea.’”

Greater Community COGIC Senior Pastor Matthew Brown: ‘Great people go to Greater’

ONE GREAT FAMILY — Most importantly and much to its delight, Greater Community COGIC has enjoyed sustained kingdom-based success throughout the years, in large part because time and again, this church is afforded the golden opportunity to have at its disposal great people, many of whom have created — and left — their unique mark on an institution that continues to be the progressive beacon of light for which it is widely known.

MARIETTA, Georgia — There’s no other way to put it.

Greater Community Church Of God In Christ is great for a variety of great reasons.

It’s located in the outskirts of Atlanta, one of America’s greatest cities.

It’s equipped with a great edifice.

It has as its shepherd an amazingly great and resourceful leader, one who’s keen reputation is such that he’s accustomed to esteeming others highly than himself.

It’s a longstanding, tradition-rich institution that thrives mightily off of inspiring and empowering others to achieve greatness and broadening their horizon both in the natural and spirit.

THE ABUNDANT LIFE FACTOR — GCC is widely known for earnestly inspiring people whom customarily find their way within its walls to become — you guessed it — great.

Most importantly and much to its delight, Greater Community has enjoyed sustained kingdom-based success throughout the years, in large part because time and again, this church is afforded the golden opportunity to have at its disposal a slew of great people, many of whom have created — and left — their unique mark on a church that continues to be the progressive beacon of light for which it is widely known.

“I wholeheartedly believe that great people make great communities and churches,” Greater Community Senior Pastor Matthew Brown, TH.D. told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “It is evident at Greater Community given the diverse disciplines represented in our ministry.”

From educational leaders to legal and medical experts, engineers, public safety officials, Corporate America executives, entrepreneurs, theologians, banking and finance executives, foster parents, grandparents, single parents, mechanics, handymen, retired executives, public administrators, pilots, college undergraduates and graduates, active and retired military, chaplains, even athletes, among others.

You name it, and chances are these types of successful individuals, in all likelihood, have become a part of a GCC movement that includes, among others things, lifting up Jesus Christ while having a monumental impact in the community and beyond in the process.

From educational leaders to legal and medical experts, engineers, public safety officials, Corporate America executives, entrepreneurs, theologians, banking and finance executives, foster parents, grandparents, single parents, mechanics, handymen, retired executives, public administrators, pilots, college undergraduates and graduates, active and retired military, chaplains, even professional athletes, among others.

For what it’s worth, acknowledging and celebrating the gifts and talents of virtually everyone who has established ties with GCC has played an integral role in what obviously has become a continuous flow of great people connecting with and discovering the purpose for which God created them.

Greater Community, by all accounts, has become great, thus evolved greatly since its historic inception in 1923, in large part because of the countless great people that have collectively joined forced to ensure that this church lives up to its name.

That is being a GREATer Community for all whom are destined to have their lives changed greatly — with God, their Helper leading the way.

WHAT ABOUT GREATER? http://www.greatercommunitycogic.org/

“Individual accomplishment is to be commended, but it is vital to parlay those single accomplishments into community empowerment,” Brown said.

STANDING ROOM ONLY — You name it, and chances are these types of successful individuals in all likelihood have become a part of the GCC movement that includes, among others things, lifting up Jesus Christ while having a monumental impact in the community in the process.

A native of Buffalo, New York who was installed as Greater Community’s Senior Pastor in October 2011, Brown emphasized that it is due in large part to the lasting and influential impact of GCC’s founders that has given way to the sustained success of the church.

“We salute the founders, framers and faithful supporters of Greater Community Church of God in Christ,” Brown said. “All of these various discipline are helping us to develop a practical kingdom to community strategy by participating and partnering with various components of our community.”

SONGBIRD OF THE PEACH STATE — A native of Memphis, Psalmist Sharon Jackson, 51, is the Minister of Music and Worship Arts at Greater Community COGIC in Marietta, Georgia, one of Atlanta’s largest suburbs with roughly 59,089 residents according to a 2013 census. Even at five-plus decades in on this thing called life, Jackson hasn’t shown any signs that she plans to slow down any time soon, particularly as it relates to lifting up Jesus through her remarkable singing.

For what it’s worth, acknowledging and celebrating the immense gifts and talents of virtually everyone who has established ties with GCC has played a remarkable role in what obviously has become a continuous flow of great people connecting with and discovering the purpose for which God created them.

In a nutshell, GCC is widely known for earnestly inspiring people whom customarily find their way within its walls to become — you guessed it — great.

THE TRADITION CONTINUES — Greater Community, by all accounts, has become great, thus evolved greatly since its historic inception in 1923, in large part because of the countless great people that have collectively joined forced to ensure that this church lives us to its name.

“I have done my best to celebrate and acknowledge everyone we discover,” Brown said. “Our kids’ academic success, Foster Parent Of The Year, Teacher of the Year — Melissa Scott, Ericka Hamilton — and the list goes on. “Continuing into year seven, we’ll keep doing what we’re doing…recruiting great talent by producing a fresh and viable ministry product that creates interest, involvement and investment…blue water strategies.

“We’ve gone to great lengths to demonstrate our collective greatness through impromptu services or pop-up services at smaller churches and blessing them in ways they would not be able to do ordinarily,” said Brown, adding that his church is presently celebrating two of its members’ children, both of whom are NFL players (for the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs). “We highlight their marketplace, academic, community and personal accomplishment publicly.  In so doing, we encourage our children by modeling excellence to repeat that behavior.”

And there’s no other way to put it.
