Young Dayton, Ohio businesswoman Tara Brown walking fervently in her purpose as an entrepreneur


I have seen something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift or the battle to the strong, nor does food come to the wise or wealth to the brilliant or favor to the learned; but time and chance happen to them all. (Ecclesiastes 9:11 NIV)


BROWN HOLDIN’ IT DOWN

DESTINY STEPS — Now that she has overcome an array of odds, now that she is walking fervently in her divine purpose, there’s no turning back for 29-year-old Ohio entrepreneur Tara Brown, who is the owner and CEO of Metiamay Visions.

Tara Brown fielded the question as if she expected it.

“I failed lots of times before getting here,” Brown, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when asked how her competitive drive fueled her desire to start a business. “I started several other businesses before getting to this point of where I have success. My will to never give up, faith in God, and the determination to never work for anyone again brought me here.”

Now that she’s arrived, now that she has overcome an array of odds, now that she is walking fervently in her divine purpose, there’s no turning back for this 29-year-old entrepreneur, who is the owner and CEO of Metiamay Visions.

MORE ON TARA BROWN’S BUSINESS: https://metiamayvisions.com/

A business that officially went into operations earlier this year, Brown’s Dayton, Ohio-based Metiamay Visions has become a globally-acclaimed fixture as the home of professional refined designs and images.

You name it, her company does it, creating virtually everything from:

  • Business Cards

  • Banners (vinyl or car door, magnets or mouse pads

  • E-Flyers (promo dds)

  • Custom Invitations

  • Media Imaging and Portrait Framing

  • Media Flyers

  • Website Building and Branding

  • Real Image Logos

  • Commercial Vinyl Banners

  • Book Cover Designs

  • Brochures

  • Business Starter Pro (Small Business Branding/Development)

  • Trademark and LLC Registration and,

  • Design You (“Anything not listed above that you want to customize such as spiral bound notebooks or custom made cards and more,” Brown said).


“I like my business, because I get to do everything I’ve always wanted to do in my business,” Brown said. “I apply my natural skill for business and communicating with the world. I am free to be as creative as I want. There are no limits and I get to travel, seeing the world, bringing my services to those who have never heard about me, or maybe they are looking for a better way to get services and not pay those ridiculous overrated prices that my competitors offer.”

A native of Detroit, amongst the things about which Brown is extremely grateful is that she steadfastly stepped out on faith in delving off into entrepreneurship.

Prior to starting Metiamay Visions, Brown had assumed the role of a freelance graphic designer for approximately three years.

“I decided that enough was enough and I put all my life skills and different job experiences into one space and Metiamay Visions was born,” Brown said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOLLOWING GOD’S PLAN 

Today, Brown’s rising venture accommodates small business owners, entrepreneurs, corporate companies, and services individuals and groups, ranging from the ages of their mid-20’s through their late 60’s.

And, to her credit, her brilliant expertise has given way to her having been afforded the golden opportunity to put her immeasurable skills on display in a host of establishments, including Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Arkansas, Texas, Georgia, and Alabama, among other places.

Because she’s fully persuaded she’s fulfilling the purpose for which God created her, Brown is confident the sky’s undoubtedly the limit for her newly-erected business.


“I enjoy this work, because it’s something that I love doing and I get to help everyday people grow their dream as well through the work they request from my business,” Brown said. “I’ve launched about five successful online and ecommerce businesses through my work. I’m changing the world one person at a time by starting and changing one new business at a time with my designs and images.”

Behind the unyielding support of her husband, David Brown — whom Brown said told her, “My husband says I should have done this a long time ago and he’s right” — this young Ohio businesswoman said the pivotal factor for starting her business came from a gallery of her peers.

“(I kept) hearing others just like me, who were lost and confused and not knowing where to start to get their business or professional image for their business at,” Brown explained. So I have to say from within.”

Now that Metiamay Visions is up and running, Brown appears destined to go full throttle with her starting lineup of endeavors, which include her being an accomplished author, who’s preparing to release her second book later this year.

JUST WARMING UP — Now that Metiamay Visions is up and running, Brown appears destined to g full throttle with her starting lineup of endeavors, which include her being an accomplished author, who’s preparing to release her second book later this year.

In addition, she’s scheduled to attend business expos in the foreseeable future in Chicago, Phoenix, and Atlanta, and she recently spoke at Ohio Media School, during which she enlightened students on the field of media and introduced them her services.

“I welcomed my first group of interns that are now a part of my team,” Brown said of her recent visit to that institution.

For what it’s worth, Brown is blessed of the notion that she stayed true to herself, stayed the course, trusted the process and, most of all, followed her dreams.

“I’m glad I’m finally exposed, because now people know it’s official. I’m a successful businesswoman now,” Brown said.

Fielding the question as if she expected it.

Georgia author Glenda Rena’s newly-produced book recalls her having overcome domestic violence


“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

HARVEST SEASON — A native of Americus, Georgia-based, Glenda Rena (Ingram) is an author and devout woman of faith, who had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

DALLAS — Glenda Rena can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not the top.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.
For Glenda Rena — whose full name is Glenda Rena’ Ingram — it wasn’t merely a figurative nightmare that swiftly prompted her to awaken out of her sleep.

This was an authentic, gruesome nightmare, mind you, one that essentially caused her to question her very existence, one that, much to her delight, eventually fueled her desire to draw closer to God Almighty.

So much, in fact, that this is Americus, Georgia-based author and devout woman of faith had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

The book to which Glenda Rena is alluding is her newly-produced written work entitled, “From Overtaken to Overcomer.”

A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

Consequently, that such a chaotic season had essentially resulted in this youngster being saddled by low self-esteem, this writer appropriately recalls how she managed to outlast what she vividly labels her “overbearing afflictions.”

In a nutshell, she didn’t shy away from the notion that even while enduring arguably the darkest season of her young life, even when her faith had been placed on trial unlike never before, God had ultimately come to her rescue, having spiritually cross-examined her from harm’s way, as only He could.

Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to God’s throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

GOD’S LEADING LADY 

A MUST READ — A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“The divine message is that once you begin to understand who you are, then no one will be able to come into your life to disrespect you, cause harm to you, or you won’t settle for just anyone and anything as mentioned in Ephesians 2:10,” Glenda Rena explained. “You will know and understand that you are God’s masterpiece. It will also show how having low self-esteem will cause you to make bad decisions and could possibly cause you your life by just settling.”


To her credit, Glenda Rena is extremely grateful in that God had strategically set her aside for His use, which, in turn, has greatly enabled her to produce a book that’s comprised of a great deal of transparency.

GOD’S SECRET PLACE — Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to His throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

“Being a victim of domestic violence, I encountered low self-esteem, depression, and had suicidal thoughts,” said Glenda Rena, adding that there are plans in the foreseeable future to assemble a 31-day devotional that will center largely on the empowering women. “This is where my one-day retreats come into play. We empower, uplift, and inspire women to become whole, healed, and free.”

Well said by this resilient woman of faith, one who can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not tops.

Detroit businesswoman Rashelle Rey’s annual hair and fashion show set for July 14


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3)


REY OF SUNSHINE 

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE — A native Birmingham, Alabama who has spent virtually all of her life in the City of David, Rashelle Rey will be hosting her annual Illusion On The Runway Hair And Fashion on Sunday, July 14 in nearby Southfield, Michigan, at the St John’s Banquet & Conference, located at 22001 Northwestern Highway.

As it pertains to walking in her divine purpose, Rashelle Rey would be the first to admit that she’s all about esteeming others highly than herself.

That is why Rey, an accomplished Detroit-area businesswoman, has become thoroughly committed to giving back to her community.

And not just giving back, but giving back in a big way.


SAVE THE DATE

A native Birmingham, Alabama who has spent virtually all of her life in the City of David, Rey will be hosting her annual Illusion On The Runway Hair And Fashion on Sunday, July 14 in nearby Southfield, Michigan, at the St John’s Banquet & Conference, located at 22001 Northwestern Highway.

The event that will take place from 3-6 p.m. EST is annual, notable tribute to women and children, many of whom suffer from various forms and hair loss, Rey told Making Headline News this week.


“The purpose of this event is to be a blessing to a family or organization that’s in need and is suffering from cancer.” — Detroit Businesswoman/Author Rashelle Rey on her annual Illusion On The Runway Hair And Fashion


A longtime licensed cosmetologist, Rey and her team are placing special emphasis on individuals who have been stricken by alopecia.

According to a report at https://www.webmd.com/skin-problems-and-treatments/guide/alopecia-areata#1, alopecia is an autoimmune disorder that customarily stems from excessive hair on one’s pillow, brush, or shower drain.

In addition, alopecia occurs when someone notices what medical experts describe as “odd little bald spots” in the mirror or when hair follicles are attacked, a trend that typically causes the hair to come out, often in clumps the size and shape of a quarter. The amount of hair loss, in fact, is different in everyone, medical experts say, considering some people lose it only in a few spots, while others lose a lot.

As for Rey’s hair and fashion show, amongst her chief objectives is to bring about awareness to alopecia, as well as various forms of cancer that often result in hair loss.

This event will be hosted by comedian Crystal P. and will include a gallery of Detroit’s finest designers, most notably Sparkle Thomas, Teddi Nairobi, Katrina Hurst, Unite Us All, Mason Tone, Unjunk Fashion Tropicana from Alta Mota Salon, as well as Wrapped In Love and Pink Diamond Beauty Mall.

Also, there will be a special performance by PDOT, a special guest appearance by Sparkle Amor, as well as other scheduled performances, according to organizers for this event.

Early bird tickets are currently on sale for $20 and ends May 25, and sponsorship and vendor opportunities will be available for this event, Rey said.

Early bird tickets can be purchased either through Cash App at: $rashellereyrpn or via PayPal at: remnantandpraisenetwork@gmail.com.

The feedback since she organized her annual hair and fashion show has been overwhelmingly favorable, Rey said.

“Since I have been promoting the event, my fellow peers say it is a great thing to be a part of,” Rey said. “It’s a hair and fashion show.”

Also, Rey and Shelia Finn co-wrote the forthcoming stage play called, “Foster Care,” which is scheduled to debut soon, she told MHN this week.

Georgia Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie savoring the abundant life that Christ came to give them


Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; Nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; And when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. (1 Peter 5:2-4 NKJV)


THE JOHN 10:10 AFFECT

FRUITS OF THEIR LABOR — Powered by the motto that reads: We are real people with real issues looking for real answers, Abundant Life is widely deemed “one church in two locations,” considering it will unveil a campus in nearby Augusta the final weekend of April. As if that isn’t enough to set off a festive, jubilant, collective praise break amongst the masses, Abundant Life commemorated its fifth anniversary the first weekend in April, a feat Pastor Vincent and Lady Ardys Leslie don’t merely take lightly, considering God had strategically set them aside for His use — particularly to serve faithfully alongside each other for such a pivotal time as now.

DALLAS — While addressing the media Friday afternoon, Vincent Leslie recalled in great detail how God had strategically gone about placing him on an pivotal assignment for such a time as now.

A massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to his distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

“I didn’t just roll out of bed one day and start preaching,” Pastor Leslie told Making Headline News during a phone interview from Atlanta. “I’ve been preaching the gospel for over 20 years.”
For Pastor Leslie, it is a two-plus-decade journey that has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

GOD’S PLAN — For Pastor Leslie, his two-plus-decade ministerial journey has benefited him mightily as one of God’s anointed spokesperson, who happens to be the Senior Pastor of Abundant Life Church of Atlanta and Augusta.

Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Powered by the motto that reads: We are real people with real issues looking for real answers, Abundant Life is widely deemed “one church in two locations,” considering it will unveil a campus in nearby Augusta the final weekend of April.

As if that isn’t enough to set off a festive, jubilant, collective praise break amongst the masses, Abundant Life commemorated its fifth anniversary the first weekend in April, a feat Pastor and Lady Ardys Leslie don’t merely take lightly, considering God had strategically set them aside for His use — particularly to serve faithfully alongside each other for such a pivotal time as now.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — A native of Los Angeles, Lady Leslie is a former salon owner and master stylist, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness. Not to be outdone, though, while it seemed she was “sold out to that religion” for an extended period of time, arguably the most crucial phenomenon she had come to discover is that Jesus isn’t just the Reason for every season but, above all, He’s the Reason she’s been set aside for God’s use.

Because they have diligently obeyed the Voice of God, today unlike never before, this couple — who share four children — are steadily savoring the fruits of their labor, not to mention possessing and savoring the Abundant Life that Christ came to give them.

For Pastor Leslie — a former Alabama A&M University student who spent eight years in the U. S. Army Reserve — his rise to selling out solely to God began at the tender age of 12.

A native of Huntsville, Alabama, who’s widely regarded as a man who God has commissioned and ordained to assure that the Gospel of Jesus Christ is disseminated to all mankind, Pastor Leslie  emerged as a young, gifted saxophonist, one who customarily played gospel music on a slew of platforms — most notably appearing as opening acts for a number of national recording artists.

Interestingly, it wasn’t until 1999 that he officially answered the call of God on his life, a development that had ultimately given way to his becoming a licensed minister at the historic Greater Hope Tabernacle Church in his native establishment.

A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.”

All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

Nearly a decade later, however, Pastor Leslie assumed his next major ministerial assignment when he founded Abundant Life Ministries in Lawrenceville along with his beloved companion.

A native of Los Angeles, Lady Leslie is a former salon owner and master stylist, who was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness.

Not to be outdone, though, while it seemed she was “sold out to that religion” for an extended period of time, arguably the most crucial phenomenon she had come to discover is that Jesus isn’t just the Reason for every season but, above all, He’s the Reason she’s been set aside for God’s use.

THIS IS HOLY GROUND 

SERVANT’S HEART — A former armor bearer, whose kingdom duties included traveling the country as an adjutant (or godly servant), amongst the notable factors Pastor Leslie discovered was that authentic ministry meant to “to meet the needs of the people.” All of which had eventually led to his much-anticipated Pastorate tenure in 2003 when he was installed as Senior Pastor of Greater Hope Tabernacle Church  in Lawrenceville, Georgia, a milestone that unfolded just two years after he had become an ordained elder.

How else to explain why she serves with keen, immeasurable excellence alongside her husband as a devoted evangelist?

“She strives to help women know their worth and value,” said a spokesperson in a detailed introduction of Lady Leslie, who also serves as director of Abundant Life Church Of Atlanta and Augusta’s Women’s Ministry, whereby she assembles and oversees programs that will enable disciple women to grow and thrive in their relationship with Christ.

Having adopted a mission in which she’s destined to “win lost souls to Christ,” Lady Leslie’s other kingdom-based responsibilities include hosting an annual women’s retreat and a monthly women’s bible study.

BEACON OF LIGHT — Officially referred to as Abundant Life Worship Center, this institution that has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area and has flourished fervently since its 2012 inception, in large part because it continues to fortify its awe-inspiring vision that’s centered on meeting people where they are, thus helping them to become fully devoted followers of Christ.

Interestingly, she is widely known for being a relationship coach, which affords her the golden opportunity to empower women of all ages, particularly through life-enhancing speeches, health and wellness, and encouraging wholeness.

The owner and adviser of the Mentor Me MasterClass — a Christian-based company and mentorship program that centers on providing spiritual oversight, wisdom, guidance, and purpose for women — Lady Leslie is an advocate for inspiring women from various walks of life to execute the essential work that would greatly enable them to savor a physically, emotionally, and spiritually-equipped healthy lifestyle.

“Our ministry is targeted toward couples and families,” Pastor Leslie said.

Now we know why.

Talk about a massive, life-changing endeavor, one that, to this couple’s distinctly unique credit, is steadily impacting and enriching the kingdom unlike never before.

Dr. Tresie Lopez’s The Counselor Café becoming a fixture in Memphis, surrounding areas


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3 KJV)


GOD’S LEADING LADY

MEMPHIS MADE — A native of Memphis who has strong ties to New Delhi, India, Dr. Tresie Menise Lopez, 48, is owner and CEO of The Counselor Café Ministries, a Mid-South area institution where she specializes in behavioral therapy, grief bereavement counseling, and marriage and individual counseling.

DALLAS — Dr. Tresie Menise Lopez’s ministerial track record is such that she’s accustomed to esteeming others highly than herself.

Heck, as far as she is concerned, that is what Christian-based counseling is all about.

“The competitive drive in life propelled me for my business venture knowing I am providing help to those who seek a balance with a healthy lifestyle for themselves as well as their families,” Lopez told Making Headline News this week.

A native of Memphis who has strong ties to New Delhi, India, Lopez, 48, is owner and CEO of The Counselor Café Ministries, a Mid-South area institution where she specializes in behavioral therapy, grief bereavement counseling, and marriage and individual counseling.
WALKING IN HER CALLING — Much to her delight, Lopez’s sustained success — both in ministry and in her profession — have come full circle throughout the years, in large part because of her solid supporting cast.

In addition, Lopez functions as a motivational speaker, all the while engaging in spiritual leadership, as well as a wedding official and premarital counselor.

An accomplished minister who’s widely known as “Pastor Tresie Lopez,” her kingdom-based achievements have garnered a national presence, in large part because Lopez’s ministerial contributions have been put on display in a variety of establishments — most notably Sikeston, Missouri, Nashville, Mason, Tennessee, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Santa Rosa, California, Dalton, Georgia, Columbus, Mississippi, Olive Branch, Mississippi, Tunica, Mississippi,  Collierville, Tennessee, Germantown, Tennessee, Springville, Missouri, and her native establishment of Memphis.

Dr. Lopez’s ministerial track record is such that she’s accustomed to esteeming others highly than herself.

“My personal mission is to provide spiritual counseling and leadership to those who seek help from a license counselor and ordained minister,” Lopez said.

Much to her delight, her sustained success — both in ministry and in her profession — have come full circle throughout the years, in large part because of her solid supporting cast.

For what it’s worth, Lopez credits her father, the late Albert C. Rushing — “May he rest in peace,” she said — her mother Beatrice Rushing, her sons, Julious J. Thomas and Joc Lopez, as arguably the notable individuals who have contributed mightily to her quest to full the purpose for which God created her.

“And of course my husband,” said Lopez, paying homage to her beloved companion, Rogelio Lopez.


DESTINY STEPS 

NATIONAL PRESENCE — An accomplished minister who’s widely known as “Pastor Tresie Lopez,” her kingdom-based achievements have garnered a national presence, in large part because Lopez’s ministerial contributions have been put on display in a variety of establishments — most notably Sikeston, Missouri, Nashville, Mason, Tennessee, Murfreesboro, Tennessee, Santa Rosa, California, Dalton, Georgia, Columbus, Mississippi, Olive Branch, Mississippi, Tunica, Mississippi,  Collierville, Tennessee, Germantown, Tennessee, Springville, Missouri, and her native establishment of Memphis.

To her credit, Lopez is certainly armed with the immeasurable skills, which have greatly enabled her to reach her destiny, courtesy of her present calling.

A 1990 graduate from Hillcrest High, Lopez completed her undergraduate studies from Phoenix State University.

She also earned a Master of Science Degree in Pastoral Counseling from the Missionary Chaplain and Seminary in Hemet, California.

A business that went into full operations in 2002, Lopez’s The Counseling Cafe is widely known for strategically providing help, particularly for urban communities in Memphis and surrounding areas.

Located at 835 NE Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington, Tax Nation boasts a staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, being knowledgeable of tax laws, and, most importantly, serving its respective community.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

For starters, Witt’s mother for years owned a licensed in-home daycare venture, which afforded her the golden opportunity to gain some hands on experience as a young businesswoman.

“I handled her clients, paid employees, collected money from parents, and had a curriculum for the children,” Witt recalled.

As it turned out, such a solid work ethic continued well into her high school years.

LOOK AT HER NOW — Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“While in high school, I was one of the leaders who started a step team and made it apart of the curriculum,” Witt explained. “We were the first black step team at Martin High School. After high school, I worked full time at an insurance company and went to Tarrant County Community College, (where) I was doing auditions for plays.”

A notable resume that also includes being a contestant in the Miss Black Texas pageant — she actually won the talent portion, largely because of her immeasurable acting skills — Witt eventually would become a founding member of the Beta Phi Chi Sorority/Fraternity that was spearheaded by Dennis Dotson.

Interestingly, she had become a fixture in the “What Should A Sista Do?” stage play.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

All things considered, Witt’s wealth of experience as a successful businesswoman has benefited her mightily throughout the years.

And, while taking questions from the media this week, Witt didn’t hesitate to emphasize that as a longtime professional tax preparer who boasts immeasurable success, she’s destined to make her presence felt in her native establishment of Arlington.

Never mind that a rash of stumbling blocks had essentially given way to her enduring an unlikely hiatus from her business.

“After a divorce, I let my business go after five years and I got back into the corporate world and went to school for taxes,” Witt said.


MRS. WITT IS LIT 

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“I inspire others by sharing my abusive experience with them and how God brought me out,” Witt said. “Being a business partner of Tax Nation has taught me even more in business. I want to educate all my clients to ensure them of their tax situation.”

Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

SHE ISN’T DONE YET — Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

Having been partnered with Tax Nation for the past five years, Witt has ventured off and started Divine Business Services, which customarily allows her to serve clients by aiding them to keep their business-related goals and ambitions intact.

“Out of my trials and tribulations I’ve been through, I’ve learned from them and turned them into a business and a way to help this upcoming generation,” Witt said.

She has no time to waste.

Every. Single. Day.

Carolina entrepreneur Alisha B. Allen deemed a ‘woman of many hats’ as CEO of ABA Enterprises


She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens; She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard;  She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms; She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night; She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff; She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31: 15-20 KJV) 


For the record, Alisha B. Allen could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…
On second thought, perhaps she could tell it best.
“Multi-business owner,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.

In essence, Allen assumes the role as an inspirational speaker through this endeavor.

WHO IS ALISHA ALLEN?

A graduate of Monroe (North Carolina) High School, who’s currently enrolled in Apex School of Theology, where she’s pursuing Master of Divinity, Allen acknowledged that it is due in large part to her life’s competitive drive that has greatly empowered her to gain the essential insight needed to make her dreams a reality.

“I learned to make the woman I was yesterday my biggest competition and I always put a 150 percent effort toward defeating and beating her each and every day,” Allen said. “(What I love most about my businesses is) the freedom to allow God to be CEO and understanding He only entrust the manifestation of what people see into my care. God trust me to run His business ethically, with integrity, and with a spirit of excellence.”

Well said by a woman, who could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…

On second thought, she’s already said it best.

Nashville businesswoman Tamica Ross’ organization helping people ‘make their dreams a reality’


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)


DALLAS — Just before 10 p.m. CST on Sunday, Tamica Ross took to her Facebook page, where she shared with the masses a rather spirited, blissful announcement.

Said Ross to her gallery of social media followers: Hello FB Friends and Family! I am so excited to announce my upcoming news article. I’m making headlines. Thanking God for this awesome opportunity.


WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Tamica Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.
For Ross, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, she has every right to share of some favorable news that, much to her delight, is a pivotal reminder of just how much God is using her for His glory.
“This business was birthed by (my) own deep desires and determination to live my best life despite the challenges of growing up in an underprivileged environment, where I became a teenage mother at the age of 16 years old,” Ross, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said of her quest in establishing what has emerged as a credible endeavor.

WHAT ABOUT TAMICA’S ORGANIZATION? www.laneseempowerment.com

A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.

As Ross specifically acknowledged, amongst her coaching venture’s strategic objectives is to empower individuals to live their best lives and, most importantly, to make all their dreams a reality.


“Tamica is on a mission to touch over a million people by empowering them to turn fear into faith, passion into purpose, confusion into clarity, gain self-confidence, and the tools needed to take action now, one step at a time on a journey well done,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ Lanese Empowerment. “She is determined to help those with deep desires to help themselves, reach their full potential, and have fun doing it while living their best lives and making all their dreams a reality.”


For Ross, establishing her coaching organization didn’t merely come easy. Not by a long shot.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the greatest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

DREAMING BIG — Interestingly and to her distinctly unique credit, Ross’ venture has come full circle, courtesy of her resiliency through life coaching, free tools and resources, speaking engagements, writing books, providing scholarship funds, summer youth programs, yearly conferences for men and women, and through D.R.E.A.M.S.

Not to be outdone, though, Ross’ thought process was such that if she would persevere long enough, she’d ultimately reap and possess and results she so desperately sought.

The rest, as they say, was history, considering she did just that.

“I refuse to be that person who was afraid to help others succeed,” Ross said. “Therefore, I have dedicated the rest of my life as a life strategist for others with the mission to empower all people, including men, women, and youths to be the best they can be and help make their dreams a reality.”

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING

An academy that’s comprised of a six week training program D.R.E.A.M.S. is designed to walk people through the steps needed to make any dream a reality and live their best lives one day at a time, Ross emphasized.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee.

Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

As for her coaching organization, she said such inspiration arose from the wide counsel of her mother, whom she says was “strong enough” to beat a drug addiction.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the biggest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

“My grandmother and stepfather have always seen the very best in me,” said Ross, paying homage to others to have paved the way to her success. “My godfather, who has always been a transformational leader in my life, my godmother, who taught me how to love God with all my heart, my children, whom I am dedicated to showing how to live your best life, and some wonderful mentors and leaders in the industry such as Tony Robbins, Valerie Burton, and even Oprah (Winfrey)…as an African American successful women, who started from the bottom and now look at what she has become.”

Given the immeasurable strides Ross has made since the startup of Lanese Empowerment, it’s safe to assume her best and brightest days are well ahead of her — days that will include, among other things, the forthcoming release of her starting lineup of books.

“She is looking forward to releasing her new book series,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ organization.

All things considered, Ross is giddy in that she can finally profess she’s walking fervently in her God-ordained purpose.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee. Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

“I was told when I started this business that I needed to define a niche,” Ross said. “Well I did and that’s all people who have the desire and passion to live an extraordinary life despite the challenges of bad credit, debt, failed marriages, loss of a job, low self-esteem, terrible childhood, underprivileged environments, or lack of joy in their hearts, confusion about their path in life, bad grades, teenage pregnancy, drug addiction, and even those who need clarity on their career paths.

“God didn’t put me on this earth to help everyone, because I know there are some they I may not be able to reach. However, there are more that I can reach, and I am looking forward to giving it all I got.”

That, to her credit, is worthy of making headlines.

Tampa businesswoman Jenelle Harris’ She EXIST organization steadily attracting more of a national presence

EXISTING WITH A PURPOSE

MISSION UNFOLDING — A Tampa, Florida-based mental health and business corporation, Jenelle Harris’ She EXIST’s mission is centered largely on ministering on what Harris refers to as “The Power of Her Testimony.”

DALLAS — Jenelle Harris would be the first to admit that she undoubtedly has a heart for women of various walks of life.

So much, in fact, that she’s established a notable platform that is centered largely on helping women to discover the best version of themselves.

“(I love) being able to provide a platform for other women’s accomplishment, partnering with other leaders and sharing some amazing testimonies and challenges in life,” Harris told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “And with doing this, we will be able to create a team that will help others with their goals. I love being a leader, because it also shares the values of authenticity and soul living.”

To her credit, Harris’ keen leadership skills have been put in display, particularly through her She EXIST organization.


MORE ON She EXIST: https://sheexist.org/

A Tampa, Florida-based mental health and business corporation, She EXIST’s mission is centered largely on ministering on what Harris refers to as “The Power of Her Testimony.”

As Harris eloquently explains, there are a variety of reasons for creating an organization that is starting to attract more of a national presence.

Harris is also is the mastermind behind newly-produced CD entitled, “She EXIST,” a project she co-produced with Moses The Mantra and is powered by BlackPeri LLC.


“I think it is important to be an asset to your community, your society, and the work place,” said Harris, when asked why it is imperative to esteem others highly than herself. “I think teaching and educating positivity is always needed. We’ve heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise kids and it will take a team to build teams.’”


Much Harris’ to delight, her organization is steadily expanding, meaning it’s safe to assume that She EXIST’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“(It) continues to grow, as those who are broken find a sense of peace while healing and telling their story,” Harris said.

CHECK OUT JENELLE’S CD

Interestingly, Harris’ She EXIST is designed specifically as a speaking platform, of sorts, most notably for women to share their stories with other women or, as she acknowledges, “to encourage and uplift those who are broken and have given up on life.”

“Throughout these sessions, you can feel the positive vibes and energy from the women who present telling the story,” Harris said.

What’s even more astounding for Harris — an accomplished marketing consulting and motivational speaker — is that her credible organization will be hosting what is known as the “Expanding Your Territory” event on June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Powered by She EXIST, this nationally-acclaimed networking conference will take place at the Raleigh Elks Lodge No. 735, located at 5538 Lead Mine Road.

Tickets for this event can be purchased at https://sheexist.org/.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Harris is an accomplished author, who has been featured in the book entitled, “Diamonds In The Rough: A Woman’s Guide To Living An Empowered Life.”

A book that’s written by Charmaine Powell, “Diamonds In The Rough: A Woman’s Guide To Living An Empowered Life” will be available soon at Amazon.com.

As for She EXIST, Harris’ organization accommodates mostly individuals and groups ranging in ages 16 to 75.

“The tool that I have is for everyone and this is the authenticity that I admire,” Harris said. “Everyone needs leadership and everyone needs empowerment, spiritual awareness, and spirituality intelligence.

“My goal is to inspire everyone with connecting to their inner selves, because oftentimes, we are connecting to a bill, to a toxic relationship, or to a bad environment,” Harris continued, adding that arguably her greatest inspirations are globally-acclaimed ministers Sheryl Brady, Bishop T. D. Jakes, and Bishop Duncan Williams, as well as her beloved grandmother. “When you begin to live from your soul daily, you will begin to detach from negativity and start to condition your mind with what makes sense. Your visibility will be clear your reaction will be a sense of action to make a change.”

Besides her upcoming event in June, Harris — whose work-related experience spans more than 17 years — is scheduled to appear on “I Am Enough” talk show that’s hosted by Wanda D. Hollis April 21. In addition, she will be featured in the April issue of Maline Pride’s Black Wall Street magazine.

“I started as a young girl at the age of 17, working as a HHA, helping elders in their homes…one-one-one care, and that inspired me to do more and to be more,” Harris said. “I was also working as a security guard, doing a grave yard shift in the projects in Harlem with no reservations going back to a city called Brooklyn.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose, functioning mightily in her element.

With God, her Helper, leading the way.

Dallas/Fort Worth Pastor Edward Taylor continuing Deliverance Chapel COGIC’s longstanding mission as its beloved leader


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)


CARRYING THE MANTLE 

DIFFERENT LEADER, SAME MISSION — A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Edward Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.

DALLAS — For the record, it is a testimony that Edward Taylor deems it a foregone conclusion to share with the masses.

Every single chance he gets.

Just recently, Taylor found himself disclosing it once again, reliving the awe-inspiring notion that had it not been for the Lord on his side then, chances are, he wouldn’t merely know where he’d be.

Then again, he does have an idea, to put it rather bluntly.
“Had God not changed my life when He did, I would probably be dead or in jail,” Edwards, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable, life-altering developments that led to his rise as an accomplished man of the cloth. “Also, I know if He changed my life, he can do it for someone else. So I take reaching the lost — evangelism — really serious.”
To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided for him a way of escape time and again.
Oh…and while you’re at it, look no further than how he’s diligently going about serving the people of God.
A notable faith-based resume that is comprised of Taylor being widely dubbed a well-respected preacher, teacher, evangelist, worshipper, father, and counselor, he has appropriately assumed his rightful place as the face of the historic Deliverance Chapel Church of God In Christ, located at 1438 Hortense Avenue.
Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under late Superintendent Kelley Jr., a stint that would ultimately give way to his official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming the Senior Pastoral duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

“Although (I was) raised in a single parent home, my mother always taught me to work hard and never let anyone tell me what I can’t do or attain,” said Taylor, recalling the No. 1 key value he was taught as a child.

CONNECT WITH DELIVERANCE CHAPEL COGIC: http://dccogic.org/

SERVING WITH EXCELLENCE — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Taylor would be considered a proverbial nuts and bolts — or a going by the book — type of minister, look no further than not just how God has provided him a way of escape time and again, but look no further than how he has gone about serving the people of God.

A native of Jackson, Mississippi, Taylor and his family relocated from the Magnolia to the Lone Star State in 2004, approximately nine years after he had effectively accepted his calling to preach the gospel.

Interestingly, even before God had strategically set Taylor aside for His use, this young preacher endured a tumultuous season in the wilderness, one that was mired by his constant drug addiction.

All things considered, coupled with divine purpose for which he was created, even a somewhat lengthy connection to drugs wasn’t enough to steer Taylor to a premature death, mind you.


LEAST WE FORGET 

REMEMBERING HIS PREDICESSORS  — Having succeeded the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley Jr., who passed away on November 19, 2016 at the age of 54, Taylor has made immeasurable strides since assuming Senior Pastor duties and, much to his delight, his congregation has unquestionably and gracefully received him in the process.

If nothing else, it seemed that such a downtrodden and gloomy season of his life only impressed upon the heart of his Creator to come after him the more. So much so that this young, gifted preacher from the “SIP” (a historic abbreviation for Mississippi) had no choice but to do away with his potentially dead-end addiction, thus pick up his cross and obey God’s specific commands that included, among other things, leading His people for such a time as now.

Because at the end of the real day, Taylor was taught, more than anything, that only what you do for Christ will last.

AFTER GOD’S OWN HEART

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.

Here he is today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from those days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed he had Taylor right where he wanted him.

But God…

SERVANT’S HEART — For what it’s worth, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

“(My ) family is very supportive, especially my mother and adult children,” said Taylor, explaining his transition to Senior Pastor nearly two years ago.

Armed with well over three decades of experience in the ministry, Taylor is especially appreciative of the valiant and unyielding support of Elect Lady Tangela Taylor, his wife of 15 years, who serves alongside him in ministry.


 

“The Lord has blessed us to work together to accomplish great things in the ministry,” Taylor said of his companion’s unparalleled support. “Our greatest desire is to take the church to another level and build the people and let God grow the church. Deliverance Chapel is a united body, and is definitely a good church to go to heaven from.”

Credit Taylor’s predecessor as arguably the biggest reason why.

Taylor joined Deliverance Chapel in 2004 after serving a brief tenure under Pastor Joe Starks of Shady Gove Church of God In Christ in nearby Irving, Texas.

RIGHT WHERE GOD WANTS HIM — Here is Taylor today, functioning mightily in his element as the chief executive officer of one of the most longstanding ministries in Dallas/Fort Worth which, to his credit, is a far cry from the days back home in Mississippi, where the adversary sensed that he had Taylor right where he wanted him. But God…

Installed as an ordained elder approximately two years later by the late Bishop J. Neaul Haynes, the former Prelate of the Texas Northeast First Jurisdictional, Taylor consequently served closely under Superintendent Kelley Jr.

Such a stint would ultimately give way to Taylor’s official installation as Deliverance Chapel’s Pastor months after Kelley Jr.’s untimely demise, despite having founded Dallas’ El Shaddai Temple Church of God In Christ in August 2011.

Deliverance Chapel was founded in 1981 by the late Superintendent Elijah Kelley, Sr. and his wife, Elect Lady Geneva Kelley.

Prior to assuming his Pastoral assignment in Texas, Taylor served at Amazing Institutional Church of God in Christ in Jackson, Mississippi, under the leadership of Superintendent Marcus Butler.

Currently, Taylor serves as Evangelist President to Bishop Nathaniel De’Anthony Wells, the Prelate of Texas Northeast Fourth Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction.

Asked when he sensed that God was strategically him for ministry, Taylor said without hesitation: “When I accepted my calling at age 30.”

A PROVEN LEADER — A tradition-rich institution that’s housed in the historic Oak Cliff community of Dallas, Deliverance Chapel has embraced wholeheartedly the keen leadership of Taylor, 53, since the longtime minister was installed as its third Senior Pastor in 2017.

For what it’s worth, though, this national COGIC Adjutant has been serving conscientiously ever since — serving with a pure and contrite heart, serving with immense adherence and trustworthiness, serving according to God’s purpose.

Most of all, he’s serving fervently from God’s perspective.
