Accomplished Memphis singer and songwriter Tamikyo Inez: What You Need To Know


A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. (Proverbs 18:16 NIV)


A RISING STAR 

MEMPHIS MADE — A longtime Mid-Southerner who has spent the better part of life in the Bluff City, Tamikyo Inez is a proud 1993 graduate of the historic Memphis Mitchell High School. Today, she is founder and CEO of “12 Disciples Entertainment,” a venture she appropriately dubs “my life.”

DALLAS — In case you don’t know her, Tamikyo Inez would like to introduce herself.

Widely regarded as an accomplished American singer and songwriter I  her own right, Tamikyo Inez was born on June 8, 1975 in Memphis, Tennessee.
A longtime Mid-Southerner who has spent the better part of life in the Bluff City, Tamikyo Inez is a proud 1993 graduate of the historic Memphis Mitchell High School.
Consequently, she enrolled at Memphis’ Southwest Tennessee Community College, where she had ultimately acquired an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration in 2108.

Having adopted a keen passion for music, Tamikyo Inez sang her very first solo at the tender age of three, during which she grew up in the church, where she had become fixture in the choir.

Interestingly, this gifted and brilliant entertainer had endued what undoubtedly was a sometime tumultuous and stormy childhood, one that was mired by poverty and abuse, she told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.


“Music has always been a vital source in my life.” — Mid-South Entertainer Tamikyo Inez


Much to her delight, though, it wasn’t until December 11, 2015 — or “at the most rock bottom place in my life,” she recalled — that Tamikyo Inez had witnessed the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought.

“God gave my life new meaning and purpose through songwriting,” she said. “That opened me up to learning the music business.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today, Tamikyo Inez is the founder and CEO of “12 Disciples Entertainment,” a venture she appropriately dubs “my life.”

“Everything I see in life, I hear as a song,”   Tamikyo Inez said of her company, which is steadily attracting a national presence. “My music speaks to anyone who loves and anyone who seeks encouragement through music…especially to dreamers over 40 (years of age) who venture to explore more of life in their mature years.” 

Having adopted a keen passion for music, Tamikyo Inez sang her very first solo at the tender age of three, during which she grew up in the church, where she had become fixture in the choir.

Now with her debut single, “Well Deserved” scheduled to be released on August 9, such a milestone will be accompanied by a nationwide tour, during which Tamikyo Inez’s musical talents will be put in display in such places as Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among other major establishments.

“My mission is so inspire dreamers to achieve their dreams,” Tamikyo Inez said. “When God created us, He made each of us with a unique calling and purpose. Life has so many setbacks and distractions, but we must be zealous to return to God — His will, His way, and His purpose for our lives.”

NATIONAL STAR WATCH 

Now with her debut single, “Well Deserved” scheduled to be released on August 9, such a milestone will be highlighted by a nationwide tour, during which Tamikyo Inez’s musical talents will be put in display in such places as Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among other major establishments.

All things considered, amongst the things about which this Mid-South entertainer is especially grateful is that she never placed her dreams and purpose by the wayside.

In case you don’t know her, well, now you do.

So remember the name.

“I’m here to encourage you to never give up on God, because God had not given up on you,” Tamikyo Inez said. “My greatest inspiration is knowing why I woke up today and when I go to bed at night. I feel amazing, because I was busy fulfilling my purpose. I want that for everyone. That is the zealous life. INEZ (which stands for) I Need Everybody Zealous.”

Detroit empowerment extraordinaire Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison helping women of color to ‘realize their potential’


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


PURPOSED FOR POTENTIAL 

FULL OF POTENTIAL — A native of the Motor City, Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison is the founder and chief executive officer of Realizing Your Potential LLC, her Michigan-based empowerment company that’s centered largely on helping African-American women thrive and flourish as life coaches and consultants, most notably by way of eliminating what she describes as negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behaviors that customarily prevent them from taking their business to the next level and beyond.

Enough of all of that negative chitter chatter, sistas.

Because longtime Detroit-based businesswoman Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison’s entrepreneurship expertise is such that she can aid other women mightily, particularly when it comes to grasping a thoroughly concept of why they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

A progressive venture that is accompanied by Wayne Dyer’s historic catchphrase, “Doing what you love is the cornerstone of having abundance in your life,” Kaba–Harrison’s Realizing Your Potential LLC has become a fixture throughout the Atlanta metropolitan area and, given the immeasurable strides it has made since its inception in April 2016, it’s safe to assume this company’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Credit Kaba–Harrison’s positive, spirited disposition on life as arguably the grandest reason why.

“I’ve always known that I was meant to be my own boss,” Kaba–Harrison, 47, told Making Headline News this week. “I’ve never been one for conformity, but rather a trend setter. After increasing my self-esteem and self-confidence, I know I am limitless and I can achieve whatever I aspire to with hard work and determination.”

As for what she admittedly loves the most about her business venture, what it all boils down to, Kaba–Harrison emphasized, is helping educate women of color to reconnect with their overall uniqueness, to rediscover and embrace the divine purpose for which they were created.


“I love meeting new people and finding out what makes them unique. I enjoy educating women and serving as their catalyst to greatness. Also, (it allows for) the limitless potential of earnings and freedom in my schedule.” —Jacqueline Kaba–Harrison


An endeavor that services African-American woman ranging in ages 35 to 55, Realizing Your Potential LLC has grasped the attention of a slew of businesswomen in greater Atlanta and, much sooner than later, Kaba–Harrison is confident her venture will begin to attract more of a national presence.


SAVE THE DATES 

Having earned an undergraduate degree from Detroit’s Wayne State University, Kaba–Harrison consequently acquired a Master’s Degree from the historic Clark Atlanta University.

Besides overseeing the day-to-day operations of Realizing Your Potential LLC, Kaba–Harrison is the proud host of “A Queen’s Round Table Show” that airs on the second and fourth Sunday of every month via Facebook.

MAKING A DIFFERENCE — Kaba–Harrison’s entrepreneurship expertise is such that she can aid other women mightily, particularly when it comes to grasping a thoroughly concept of why they are fearfully and wonderfully made.

In addition, she hosts what is known as “A Queen’s Round Table Quarterly Symposium, with her third quarter airing scheduled to take place on September 15.

Interestingly, Kaba–Harrison is a rising author, who’s a part of a forthcoming collaborative book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman: Next Level,” which is scheduled to launch sometime in 2020.

Widely regarded as a success and confidence coach for African-American women, Realizing Your Potential LLC’s strategic focus is to inspire and uplift African-American women everywhere or, as this face of this notable endeavor said, “to know better and do better for themselves, their families, and their communities.”

For three-plus years and counting.

Amid rash of setbacks, Maryland author Lawan D. Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity’ book is officially released


If thou faint in the day of adversity, thy strength is small. (Proverbs 24:10 KJV)


PURPOSED FOR PAIN 

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Lady Lawan D. Ferguson, an Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author, recently unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”

Come hell or high water, say this about Lady Lawan D. Ferguson:

She’s undoubtedly going to find the strength to tell of God’s goodness and mercies, courtesy of a few life-changing testimonies.
Just recently, in fact, this Upper Marlboro, Maryland-based author steadfastly unleashed an assortment of spiritually-empowering testimonies, an awe-inspiring trend that came wrapped up in a book entitled, “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.”
A book that made its ceremoniously launch in May 2019, but was released approximately a month later, Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain” singles out the dreaded adversary, during which this writer says customarily unfolds in our lives to keep us paralyzed and from reaching our fullest potential in God, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at Amazon.com.

PURCHASE LADY FERGUSON’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.ca/Overcoming-Adversity-Pushing-Past-Pain/dp/1099733634

“We feel trapped and oftentimes not able to find a way of escape,” said a spokesperson for Ferguson’s ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past the Pain.’ “Through the roughest of trials and tribulations, we forget that we serve a mighty God who can do all things but fail. ‘Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain’ is a book of personal testimonies that will enlighten, inspire, encourage, teach and motivate you to push beyond those difficult times and to trust God when in the midst of it all.”

A 145-page book that Ferguson began assembling two years ago, her latest written work initially was comprised of a dozen authors, a few of whom fell off from the project amid what the featured writer describes as a flurry of “setbacks, restructures, and reorganizations.”

Consequently, that gave way to a brief delay until “God was able to cut out the riffraff,” Ferguson said, thus reconstruct a group with what she dubs a “chosen generation of eight amazing co-authors.”

A book signing for Ferguson’s latest book is scheduled for August 24 at the Holiday Inn Reagan National Airport, located at 2650 Richmond Highway in nearby Arlington, Virginia.


SAVE THE DATE

After forming a strategic team of authors, Ferguson had managed to spearhead and move forward with a spiritually-empowering book that figures to become a fixture in the Body of Christ — much sooner than later.

“This book is to encourage, inspire, motivate, and aid others to trust God in all they do,” Ferguson told Making Headline News this week. “God has called me to be a light in a world of darkness and to have compassion for people and deep passion for (Him). God has called me to be an ambassador for the kingdom, to minister the word of God and to aid others in reaching their fullest potential in a purposed-filled life.”

A book that’s a little more than a month removed from its release, the feedback for Ferguson’s “Overcoming Adversity: Pushing Past The Pain” has been mostly favorable, she said.

“(The) testimonials of the readers are very positive,” Ferguson said. “People are being healed, set free, and delivered as a result of reading these awesome and Holy Ghost-inspired testimonies.”

A native of Washington, D.C., Ferguson is an accomplished licensed minister and an ordained deaconess, who serves as a trustee at Christ Creative Baptist Church (or CCBC) in nearby Temple Hills, Maryland.

As for her notable authorship tenure, she’s made valiant contributions to other collaborative and bestselling projects: “Perfectly Imperfect: Seeing Yourself Through The Eyes Of God” (released in July 2016); “I Survived: Written By Survivors for Survivors” (released on April 5, 2019).

She founded and established leadership to the CCBC Women’s ministry, “Sisters Aiding In Transforming Sisters” (or S.A.IN.T.S.), which strategically focuses on and aids in cultivating, redesigning, transforming, encouraging, motivating, uplifting, and empowering women in their individual and spiritual lives.

Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Lady Ferguson, this devout woman of faith is married to the Reverend Dr. George St. Anthony Ferguson, who is the Founder and Senior Pastor of CCBC.

A 145-page book that Ferguson began assembling two years ago, her latest written work initially was comprised of a dozen authors, a few of whom fell off from the project amid what the featured writer describes as a flurry of “setbacks, restructures, and reorganizations,” which consequently, gave way to a brief delay until “God was able to cut out the riffraff,” Ferguson said, thus reconstruct group with what she dubs a “chosen generation of eight amazing co-authors.”

Her educational resume includes having earned an Associate of Applied Science Degree in Business Management, a Bachelor of Arts in Religion and Theological Studies, a Master of Business Administration with an emphasis in Acquisitions, and a Master’s certificate in Government Contracts.

Interestingly, Lady Ferguson has served over 28 years in federal government and is presently a licensed coach, as well as a financial aid and college mentoring coach.


WHAT ABOUT CCBC? https://www.facebook.com/ccbc1990/

As for her latest book, Ferguson is especially grateful of the notion that it is as good as advertised.

“(I just want? to help someone get through a rough time in life by sharing encouraging testimonies of triumph over adversity,” she said.

Well said by this, a true overcomer in Christ.

Georgia entrepreneur Nicole Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services providing efficient childcare solutions


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14 NIV)


PAYING IT FORWARD 

HEARTS OF GOLD — The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta, Nicole Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters who are passionate about the care and development of children

Some two years ago, Nicole Wrice discovered a need, particularly with regards to providing what she describes as quality care for children and families.

With God, her Helper steering the way, she has devised strategic and efficient ways to meet those needs.
“It isn’t really competition that drives me,” Wrice, a Columbus, Georgia-based businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, when asked how her competitive drive in life propelled her for business venture. “I saw that there was a need of quality care for children and families that weren’t being met. I felt like someone had to offer more, to do it better…and I knew I could do it better. So I did.”
Indeed she has, having established a strategic and flourishing endeavor that is Magnolia Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta.

The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart, Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters, who are passionate about the care and development of children.

Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta is located at 4 Bradley Park Court, Unit 2H.

“Whether parents are looking for a traditional nanny, a local babysitter for date nights, event childcare for a wedding, or backup childcare for employees, we are ready to connect them with a highly qualified caregiver to meet their unique needs,” said Wrice, 43, providing a detailed overview of Magnolia Heart.


DID YOU KNOW…

  • Magnolia Heart Babysitters  is a database that brings local parents and babysitters together, offering parents the peace of mind of hiring a Magnolia dedicated babysitter that has been fully screened, background checked, and CPR certified.
  • Munchkins Corporate Care is the newest addition to the Magnolia Heart family, and offers organizations from small businesses to fortune 500 companies the opportunity to increase employee productivity, morale, and retention by offering a competitive back up childcare plan for working parents.  We also provide on-site event care for conventions, conferences, and other corporate events and, 
  • Magnolia Heart Nanny Services  (or MHNS) works closely with families to find fully screened, professional nannies that meet the unique needs of each family. We do all the work, and you interview and select the candidate that will be the best fit for your family.

A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured ventures: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

A native of Homerville, Georgia, Wrice emphasized, among other things, that her primary objective through her progressive, thriving business is to routinely provide families with the quality and efficient care they deserve.

“I like knowing that I am making difference in the lives of children, parents, and nannies,” Wrice said. “I like helping nannies to grow and develop their skills and hearing success stories of how much they love the children and family when I check in with them after placement.

IN THE NEWS — Much to their delight, Gene and Nicole Wrice are starting to generate mainstream media headlines for all the right reasons. Gene Wrice is a United State Army Major.

The more she witnesses and hears of these proverbial feel-good stories, the more she becomes overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that she’s walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.


“I love hearing success stories from parents and nannies, like the parents who told me that their child with special needs is happy and secure and able to participate in extracurricular activities with the help of his nanny, rather than being kicked out of day care centers,” Wrice recalled. “I’m excited to see employees strive for their potential and feel cared for when businesses and corporations offer backup care services.”


All things considered, providing what Wrice and staff dub as “total care” is absolutely essential, particularly as it relates to the sustained success of Magnolia Heart.

“Our nannies work with any age and we even offer adult special needs care,” said Wrice, adding that her company’s private and corporate events typically offer childcare to children ranging in the ages of eight weeks to 12 years old.”

Much to Wrice’s delight, greater things are on the horizon for her endeavor in the coming months, she said.

Amongst those is the startup of Magnolia Heart Senior Care, which is scheduled to officially go into operations sometime in 2020.

“Also, we work with nannies of all ages to place them with the right family — many are college students — but we also have former teachers, nurses, and even grandmothers,” Wrice said.

Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services’ original site is based in Columbus, Georgia. Consequently, there eventually arose a high demand for a second office that’s housed in nearby Atlanta.

FAMILY FOCUS — A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured avenues include: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

“Our event care nannies work throughout the southeastern United States,” Wrice said. “Our newest sister company, Munchkins Corporate Care, is ready to assist businesses with back up childcare for their employees nationwide.”

To her credit, Wrice boasts an array of experience, which has greatly enabled her to functioning mightily in her element as the face of Magnolia Heart, considering she’s a military spouse of 19-plus years and a working mother of seven children, one of whom is of special needs.

“I have decades of experience working in the childcare industry as a nanny for military families,” said Wrice, the former owner of Little Bizzy Bees Daycare who also boasts more than two decades of experience in the medical field.

“So I can accurately say I’ve spent most of my life focused on helping children grow, develop, and learn in a loving, safe environment. I personally understand the enormous obstacles that parents face when looking for reliable childcare, especially for children who have special needs,” continued Wrice, adding that she was inspired by her daughter with special needs and her late father to advance Magnolia Heart.

Interestingly, Wrice also credits her grandmother for having played an integral role in her entrepreneurship success.

“A lot of my passion comes from her,” Wrice said of her grandmother. “We have a large family.”

A little more than two years removed from having established what is shaping up to be a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it, Wrice doesn’t shy away from the notion that Magnolia Heart is positioning itself fervently to have a national impact — much sooner than later.

“Seeing the need for quality childcare for working families led me to start a full service nanny agency that has a business model focused on the well-being of both the family and the nanny,” she said. “We’re looking to do business with corporations. We offer corporate backup care and corporate on-site event childcare.”

That’s not all, Wrice acknowledged.

“We’re looking to do business with corporations through Munchkin Corporate Care and that’s where we do backup childcare for corporations and their employees,” Wrice added. “They can give us a call or they can request a meeting. We are nationwide for onsite event childcare and we are nationwide for corporate backup childcare.”

Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

Detroit business couple Roderick and Mablene Gillison advancing the kingdom as resourceful recovery coaches


Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV)


STANDING IN AGREEMENT 

GOD-ORDERED STEPS — Together, the inseparable union between Roderick and Mablene Gillison is so superabundant and close-knit that this godly couple deemed it essential to collectively established a business venture that would not only benefit them mightily, but, most importantly, it would help enrich and advance the kingdom.

Roderick loves his wife to the moon and back.

Mablene undoubtedly shares the same sentiments.

Together, the inseparable union between Roderick and Mablene Gillison is so superabundant and close-knit that this godly couple deemed it essential to collectively established a business venture that would not only benefit them mightily, but, most importantly, it would help enrich and advance the kingdom.
A native of Detroit, Roderick Gillison is a longtime real estate broker whom, along with his wife of 27 years, is state licensed recovery coach, whereby they are routinely afforded the golden opportunity to offer strategic support and assistance, particularly through helping people make the necessary recoveries that will ultimately prove beneficial to them.
Aside from functioning as a dedicated business couple to complement their longstanding union, Gillison is the Founder of the Recovery Today Television Network, an awe-inspiring milestone that is a far cry from his season in the wilderness, during which he was once saddled by drug and alcohol additions.

“A recovery coach is a person who has lived experiences and can identify with the peers he or she is serving,” Roderick Gillison told Making Headline News this week.

A venture that is powered by Roderick’s wealth of experience as a licensed minister of the gospel, the Gillisons’ recovery coaching endeavor is centered largely on aiding others to press and navigate toward a rewarding, successful future, not to recall and dwell on their turbulent, discomforting past, the couple acknowledged.

“Recovery means to gain back what was lost,” Roderick Gillison said. We offer support, assistance in helping persons to make a recovery that will work for them.”

AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

Interestingly and to their distinctly unique credit, the Gillisons’ Christian-based venture has become a fixture for attracting and accommodating today’s youth — or these millennial.

“We are trying to show the young generation it’s not what you do, it’s why you do what you do,” said Roderick Gillison, who accepted his calling to engaging in ministerial work in 1995.

Beloved members of Detroit’s historic After Christ Christian Center — under the leadership of Apostle Rudolph and Kingdom Recovery Ministries founder, Pastor Lois Ellis — Roderick Gillison credit these notable clergymen for greatly steering him on the right path in ministry, as well as in the business sector.

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Beloved members of Detroit’s historic After Christ Christian Center — under the leadership of Apostle Rudolph and Kingdom Recovery Ministries founder, Pastor Lois Ellis — Roderick Gillison credit these notable clergymen for greatly steering him on the right path in ministry, as well as in the business sector.

“These are my pastors, whom I love dearly,” Roderick Gillison said. “They accepted me and my family in 1995 at the lowest times in my life when I was struggling and hurt, and with their love and prayers, they raised us up to be who we are today — overcomers in Christ.”

Aside from functioning as a dedicated business couple to complement their longstanding union, Gillison is the Founder of the Recovery Today Television Network, an awe-inspiring milestone that is a far cry from his season in the dreaded wilderness, during which he was once saddled by drug and alcohol addictions.

RODERICK’S COVERING 

POWERFUL WORDS —– “Having my husband for 27 years as a business partner gives me the ability to grow, not only as a friend, partner, and lover,” Mablene Gillison said. “We encourage each other in the good and bad times. Things I can’t see and hear, I have the man I trust to help me navigate through life’s situations. In this partnership, it teaches us to pray, love, forgive, and celebrate life daily.”

But God…Whom this devout man of faith had ultimately discovered would emerge as the Author and Finisher of his faith.

Talk about a dramatic comeback from after having endured a major and potentially life-threatening setback.

“I’m working in the field that I once fell victim to,” said Roderick Gillison, recalling his life-changing testimony for probably the umpteenth time, yet for all the right reasons.

Aside for the valiant support of his spiritually coverings, he has his wife to thank more than anything.

“My wife’s impact as a business partner is very special,” Roderick Gillison said. ‘Not only is she a wife, but first and foremost, she’s my friend. (The fact) we can achieve and love each other at the same time is mind blowing to me. Our marriage of 27 years is based upon (the Biblical passage) Amos 3:3, which reads: How can two walk together except they be agreed? She knows everything about me…how I think, how I’m feeling…man, she is definitely a gift from God. None of this would be possible without her.”

WE ALL IN — A venture that is powered by his wealth of experience as a licensed minister of the gospel, the Gillisons’ recovery coaching endeavor is centered largely on aiding others to press and navigate toward a rewarding, successful future, not to recall and dwell on their turbulent, discomforting past, the couple acknowledged.

Of course, Mablene Gillison likewise has a few favorable pleasantries to pass along while assessing her husband’s immeasurable impact as a business partner.

“Having my husband for 27 years as a business partner gives me the ability to grow, not only as a friend, partner, and lover,” Mablene Gillison said. “We encourage each other in the good and bad times. Things I can’t see and hear, I have the man I trust to help me navigate through life’s situations. In this partnership, it teaches us to pray, love, forgive, and celebrate life daily.”

With God, their Helper, steering the way.

Detroit author Taynia A. Coleman’s featured book is a microcosm of her God-mandated purpose

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MOTHER’S DAY 2019 SPECIAL REPORT

 


Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor. (Ecclesiastes 4:9 NIV)


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — Taynia A. Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” is an awe-inspiring, informative written document in which she strives diligently to be rather forthright and direct with her sizable reading audience.

To her credit and for the betterment of relationship enhancing, Taynia A. Coleman wrote a book in which arguably her chief focus was to — for a lack of better words — keep it 100.

In a nutshell, Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” is an awe-inspiring, informative written document in which she strives diligently to be rather forthright and direct with her sizable reading audience.
“God first gave me the vision to start a family and relationship blog called, ‘Destined With A Purpose,’” Coleman told Making Headline News this week. “Due to the fact I was married for 10 years and only three of the years were good years, I needed an outlet, which later became a prayer relationship and communication book.”

BUY TAYNIA COLEMAN’S BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/destinedwithapurpose/

A book that is comprised of 54 pages, Coleman began assembling “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” sometime in late 2016 and needed a little less than two years to complete a project she constructed while enduring arguably a downtrodden, discomforting season of her life.

A native of Detroit, Coleman’s featured book is accompanied by “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: The Journal.”

“This journal was created with the prayers from the book in order to get your prayer life going for your relationship,” a spokesperson for Coleman’s “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” said in a detailed synopsis of her book at Barnes & Noble online. “It includes space for you to write out your own prayers and also a journaling room. When faced with problems with your significant other, you start wondering how to get things back on the right track and it is never easy. The powerful prayers and the prayers of your own that is in this journal are designed to help get your relationship back on the right path.”

As Coleman explained, she wrote her relationship-enhancing book during a time in which “I felt like I was by myself at every angle,” she recalled.

“There were no how to, or what to do when this happen in your relationship type of books,” said Coleman, whose authorship debut arose amid a divorce. “I mean, there were books, but none of them resonated with my spirit. I needed something raw and real. If I couldn’t find the help I needed, I wanted to be the help someone else may need.”

BUT GOD — As Coleman explained, she wrote her relationship-enhancing book during a time in which “I felt like I was by myself at every angle,” she recalled.

To her credit and for the betterment of building up her spirit man and drawing closer to Almighty God, Coleman’s book has become an influential GPS system, of sorts, particularly as it relates to helping others steer their way from a sense of defeat to a season that’s accompanied a God-manifested victory.

“The purpose of this book is to help individuals and couples heal in order to communicate and love effectively,” Coleman, a notable Relationship Coach, explained. “It is for all levels of relationships, as well to help anyone that is still broken from a relationship. The prayers at the end of each chapter are powerful.

A book that is comprised of 54 pages, Coleman began assembling “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” sometime in late 2016 and needed a little less than two years to complete a project she constructed while enduring arguably a downtrodden, discomforting season of her life.

“These books are to help heal the broken hearted through prayers, it is to let them know that they too can go from broken to complete if they would trust God in and through the process,” Coleman continued. “It is to let them know that in those very dark days that there is better on the other side, but they have to have faith and believe God.”

Much like this Motor City-based writer and accomplished businesswoman had to, particularly during a time her faith had been tried and tested unlike never before.

But God…

PEACE AND BLESSINGS — All things considered, because Coleman stuck with God by staying in faith, the purpose for which she has been created is still being fulfilled, all the while she possesses the peace that surpasses understanding in the process.

“I believe my writings will help heal people emotionally and physically from heart break and depression,” Coleman said without hesitation. “I want them to know even though they may feel alone, they don’t have to go through the process alone.”

After all, two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor, according to scripture.

“God created me to help heal the brokenhearted,” said Coleman, adding that the feedback since the release of “An Unnecessary Breakdown Within Your Relationship: Communication Is Key” has been overwhelmingly favorable. “He took me through a process that only the strong could survive.”

And to think, the devil thought he had her.

But God…

“I almost lost my mind, dealing with the damaged and misfit marriage that I lost my way,” Coleman said. “I lost Taynia.”

All things considered, because Coleman stuck with God by staying in faith, the purpose for which she has been created is still being fulfilled, all the while she possesses the peace that surpasses understanding in the process.

KEEPING IT 100 — “I believe my writings will help heal people emotionally and physically from heart break and depression,” Coleman said without hesitation. “I want them to know even though they may feel alone, they don’t have to go through the process alone.”

“I birthed ‘Destined With A Purpose’ out of pain, because at the time, I felt I had no purpose, but God told me otherwise, so I listened,” Coleman said, “With God’s healing power, He lifted me up and pieced together my broken heart, and now my mission is to help others mend their hearts. I want to show them how to love themselves before trying to love somebody else.”

Talk about a Necessary Breakdown of a book that has emerged a constant must read.

For all the right reasons.

Shreveport’s Raichal Linnear savoring sustained success as an accomplished entrepreneur


I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


BLESSED REGARDLESS 

DALLAS — Raichal Linnear isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport, Louisiana.

At the end of the real day, Linnear is destined to make every single day count, is determined to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.
After all, she knows full well she’s owes it to herself to press and navigate toward her purpose.
On purpose.
“I, Raichal, saw a need that I wanted to do more for myself and my family to having a functioning stability to where I can take care of my family and live the lifestyle that’s going to educate myself and learn who is Raichal Linnear as an adult to better herself,” Linnear told Making Headline News this week.

Given the immeasurable strides Linnear has made of late, particularly as a rising entrepreneur, it’s safe to assume she’s steadfastly positioning herself to possess and savor the stability she so desperately seeks.

Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Shreveport-based is a profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.

Talk about stepping outside of her comfort, thus establishing a business venture that figures to garner sustained success, much sooner than later.

A business that is nearing its second year anniversary on September 16, Linnear entrepreneurial resume is also comprised of her assuming the role as a business specialist consultant, whereby she’s aids with a variety of assistance programs such as employment training, educational training and trade, as well as housing assistance programs for plus-sized individuals.

As for Thick Madame Boutique, Linnear’s venture offers an array of business clothing apparels as a retail outlet for business-minded individuals along with royal elegant dresses, as well as casual and African apparels.

Interestingly, Linnear customarily designs her own customized accessories, footwear, and cosmetics.

And then there is Thick Madame Modeling Agency, which is an adult entertainment program exclusively for plus-sized Americans who aspire to delve off into a modeling career as a strategic way to boost their image by way of generating exposure for their branding, Linnear emphasized.

Having credited entertainers Chris Brown and T.I. for inspiring her to start her businesses, Linnear’s said, “Right now, I’m in the progress of having map route to Place Thick Madame Boutique and to see it everywhere. I would love to see it in places such as Atlanta, Georgia, Dallas, Jamaica, Africa, Los Angeles, and Paris.

GOD’S PLAN — Raichal Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Sherveport, Lousiana-based profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.  

Her itinerary includes, among other things, her hosting a business-related shower event and what is known as the Thick Madame Royale Fashion Runway at dates that have yet to be determined.

For what it’s worth, Linnear is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God has blessed her to achieve sustained success as a young businesswoman, who’s convinced her best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

“It is important (to esteem others daily), because I want everyone to know that your past does not defined who you are,” Linnear said. “You are the writer of your story. Where there is an ending, there is a new beginning. Push through your pain and see the Light (God) at the tunnel. For everything you go through, there’s a lesson to be learn, a story to be a testimony.”

Appropriately said, by a progressive, thriving businesswoman, one who isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport.

Dallas/Fort Worth event planner Kimberly Warner carrying on mother’s memory through entrepreneurship


And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified; What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us,who can be against us? (Romans 8:30-31 NIV)


GOD’S FAITH STEPPER 

DALLAS — In case you know don’t her, Kimberly Warner would like to introduce herself.

“My name is Kimberly Warner and the proud wife of Minister Kevin Warner,” Warner, displaying a smile, told Making Headline News this week.

As if being married to a loving, supportive husband isn’t enough unmerited favor, Warner will be turning the big 5-0 on July 6.
“I’m very excited to meet this milestone in my life,” Warner said.
Much to her delight, that isn’t the only milestone for which Warner is overwhelmingly enthralled.
A native of nearby Fort Worth, Texas, Warner is a rising entrepreneur as owner and CEO of KWarner Events, her up-and-coming DFW-based event planning management company, whose mission includes, among other things, taking clients’ events and making it a rather, festive, jubilant occasion for the best outcome to “wow” the guest at your event, Warner acknowledged.
DESTINY STEPS — A native of nearby Fort Worth, Texas, Kimberly Warner is a rising entrepreneur as owner and CEO of KWarner Events, her up-and-coming DFW-based event planning management company, whose mission includes, among other things, taking clients’ events and making it a rather, festive, jubilant occasion for the best outcome to “wow” the guest at your event, Warner acknowledged.

An accomplished Corporate American professional who assumes an IT Technician position for a local communications company, Warner said it is it due in large part to her competitive drive, coupled with her keen ability to excel that essentially headline her sustained success as a businesswoman.

“I have always been a competitive individual and very determined to succeed in anything I do,” Warner said. “I have never allowed anyone to tell me I can’t do something without trying it for myself.”

Interestingly, even when adversity has surfaced to challenge her faith, there was Warner, finding the strength to fervently demonstrate faith in ways unimaginable.

“When my husband had his accident, I knew it was my turn to shine and let him know, ‘Since you can’t, I will. So, I do,” said Warner, living up to her marriage vows as God’s specifically commands us to.


BUT TICKETS TO THIS EVENT HERE: https://www.ticketor.com/kwarnerevents/upcomingevents?pageid=146039

Fortunately for Warner, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her business during an action-packed summer concert July 5 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. CST at the Courtyard Theater, located at 1509 H Avenue in nearby Plano, Texas.

Having acknowledged that her “pleasured occupation” is functioning as a full- time caregiver to her husband, who was paralyzed amid a freak accident late last year approximately one month before the couple’s first wedding anniversary, Kimberly Warner deemed it essential to become even more resourceful while overseeing the day-to-day operations of her KWarner Events.

A graduate of Arlington’s Sam Houston High School, Warner holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Legal Studies and Advocacy from Southern New Hampshire University.

Not to be outdone, this progressive, thriving entrepreneur is currently studying for the Law School Admission Test (or LSAT) with lofty aspiration s of enrolling in law school.

Talk about doing the necessary things that will greatly enable her to walk in the divine purpose for which she was created.

As for KWarner Events, which was organized in 2016 but went into full operations the following year, Warner said achieving her customer service goals and objectives are extremely imperative.

“What I like most about my business is that it allows me to provide a service to a customer that makes them look like the host of the year, and people will always want to come and be a part of their engagements,” Warner said. “Because I am a hopeless romantic, I love the ‘Just Because’ celebrated moments, picnics, and corporate events that promote giving back to the employees and the community.”

That Warner is a part of a close-knit family has also given way to wealth of entrepreneurial success.

“Family was everything to my mother and we celebrated everything,” Warner said. “No matter how big or small. You name it, it was celebrated. Such great times with that same momentum. I propel to put fun, laughter, and memories to any event.”

Fortunately for Warner, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her business during an action-packed summer concert July 5 from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. CST at the Courtyard Theater, located at 1509 H Avenue in nearby Plano, Texas.

Amongst the things about which Warner is grateful is that she’s been blessed to operate her business in her mother’s memory.

“I really had only one person that inspired me to do anything I set my mind to…my mother,” Warner said. “Now that she is gone, I keep the words of wisdom in my mind and heart. She always told me to keep God before and above all that I do and He will see me through in good times and bad.”

CONNECT WITH KWARNER EVENTS VIA SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.facebook.com/kwarnerevents/

Since the startup of KWarner Events, things have been mostly all good for this blessed DFW-area entrepreneur, who’s convinced her best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

“I have never seen myself as a motivator for others as I have been told many times by friends and family that I was, which surprised me tremendously,” Warner said. “I have always treated people the way I want to be treated. So I demand to be treated great since I give it wholeheartedly in return.

“If I have a word of encouragement, I am going to use it for inspiration. If I have a word of wisdom, I share it. If I got it and you need it more than me, it’s yours. That was the foundation in my home and the role model I had to look up to…momma.”

Talk about thorough introduction to a big-hearted, beloved Texas businesswoman.

Virginia businesswoman Ieshia Leverette goes from ex-felon to well-educated and established entrepreneur


These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. (John 16:33 KJV)


A LIVING TESTIMONY

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Ieshia Nicole Leverette is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles. (Photos By Casandra Loiacono)

For what it’s worth, Ieshia Leverette was only keeping it 100.

“I could have been a statistic,” Leverette, an ex-felon, said during a recent interview with Making Headline News, recalling the slew of the obstacles and hurdles about which she had to clear and overcome during the course of her young life.

“I have seen a lot and overcome a lot by choice and circumstances, but I never let a closed door stop me.”
She’s got that right.
Credit Leverette’s fervent desire and steadfast determination to defy arguably the grandest of odds as the biggest reasons she’s managed to make continuous strides as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.
An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

A native of Cleveland, Ohio, Leverette, 31, is Fredericksburg, Virginia-based entrepreneur, one who’s widely known for assuming a variety of roles.

An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishments around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative of the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into the lives of others.

HOLDING IT DOWN — An entrepreneurship track record she’s been afforded to put on display in several of establishment around the country, Leverette is an accomplished real estate team owner/operator, as well as a life coach, author, T-Shirt’s and pod cast host.

“Through being a realtor, I’ve had the pleasure of meeting so many people from so many different walks of life, and I am most humbly fulfilled when I am able to pour into their lives,” Leverette said. “I am the one they call to celebrate with them, because I impact them in a very real way.”

As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially have become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“I don’t worry about the buying and selling of the home as much as I do in mentoring them, guiding them and helping them see their own potential,” said Leverette, explaining how her competitive drive in life has propelled her to start a host of business ventures. “It’s an unmatched experience they get with me as a person.  Everyone I come across, I tend to affect their life in a very real way, even if they don’t tell me until many years later. I have been called to pour into others’ lives and show them another side of them that they didn’t know existed.”

LEADING BY EXAMPLE — While she doesn’t shy away from the notion that she could have very well been a statistic, amongst the things about which Leverette is appreciative is the fact that she’s gone to great lengths to embrace her imperfections, which has greatly enabled her to pour into others’ lives.

To her credit, Leverette certain possesses the education and training, which have contributed mightily to her sustained entrepreneurship success.

A 2005 graduate of Cleveland Height High School — she actually graduated one year early thanks in large part the administration’s approval that allowed her to take additional classes — Leverette enrolled at Cleveland State University, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Public Relations and Advertisement in 2010.

Consequently, she’s enrolled at Argosy University of Hawaii, where she acquired an MBA in Marketing in 2012.

As for her assortment of business ventures that accommodate individuals ranging mostly between the ages of 27 to 55, credit Leverette’s wealth of wisdom, coupled with her spirit of compassion as the reasons those with whom she customarily crosses paths often come away overwhelmingly empowered and encouraged, thus acquiring a new lease on life.

Just like she has ever since she delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.


“My business allows me to watch others become confident in whom they are. I love building tomorrow’s leaders.  I love seeing progression. I am even more enthralled to watch women regain their independence, because we often forget about ourselves taking care of others.” — Virginia Businesswoman Ieshia Leverette


Interestingly, what it all boils down to, Leverette emphasized, is devising way to impact lives — and to it daily.

For the rest of her life.

“To impact lives that would otherwise continue in the same pattern,” said Leverette, when asked what her personal mission is for running the day-to-day operations of her business. “To make people see themselves clearly and with power. To help people stop doubting their abilities. People ask me why I create my own competition, but honestly if you become better, then I’ve done my job.”

An entrepreneurship tenure that dates back to 2010, Leverette’s inspiration for functioning in her element stems from learning of the various challenges other women have faced.

STAYING THE COURSE 

DESTINY STEPS — As Leverette explains, her steadfast commitment to impacting and enriching lives essentially has become the feature objective, of sorts, to her divine calling as a successful businesswoman.

“(I become inspired by) women who have lost their power in a marriage or after having children,” Leverette said. “People who are just as lost and don’t know where to start. It’s really just how my heart operates. I just want people to know all that there is to know about the life they live today and how to maximize that time and make it the most fulfilling.”

Talk about having mounted a dramatic comeback for the ages, from a felon to a successful entrepreneur, one who’s undoubtedly living her best life.

“I am just a woman that got a felony 12 years ago and didn’t let it stop me from becoming who I am today,” Leverette said. “I’ve always fought to overcome any things thrown my way. From having 3 jobs while on a full-time school schedule, to becoming an entrepreneur and dominating a male dominant industry purely off of me being genuine, caring, and motivational to others.”

All the while keeping it 100 in the process.
