Georgia entrepreneur Kristin Mitchell’s professional makeup artist gifts generating a global presence


I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Marvelous are Your works, And that my soul knows very well. (Psalm 139:14 NKJV)


LORD, MAKE ME OVER 

JOYOUS OCCASION — The owner and CEO of Eyedolized by K.Mitchell, Kristin Mitchell, 35, was recently named a Brand Ambassador and Curvy Model for a number of companies. As if that wasn’t enough to turn heads, Mitchell, too, was invited to participate on Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Your Life In Focus vision tour.

DALLAS — Just after 10 p.m. EST Monday night, Kristin Mitchell wasted little time taking to her social media timeline, where she shared with the masses the latest memorable developments surrounding her God-given gift.

Said Mitchell, a Savannah, Georgia entrepreneur, in a rather spirited post before her gallery of Facebook followers:

So today, I finally had the full pleasure of doing my aunt and godmother, Comia (FlynnStyle) Flynn’s makeup and pictures! You talk about sweating bullets???!!! But I am so thankful that I’ve been able to do this. Thank you, auntie. Eyedolized Brand is well on its way!

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Mitchell deems it essential to exhibit an array of excitement for her immeasurable gift as thriving professional makeup artist, look no further than the commendable strides she’s made since delving off into such a competitive industry some five years ago.
Not only has Mitchell been afforded the golden opportunity to service her Flynn — who was recently on hand for at the Oscars during which she was a brand ambassador for the Oprah Winfrey 2020 Vision Tour — but she, too is witnessing her gift make room for her in ways unimaginable.

The owner and CEO of Eyedolized by K.Mitchell, Mitchell, 35, was recently named a brand ambassador and curvy model for a number of companies. As if that wasn’t enough to turn heads, Mitchell, too, was invited to participate on Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Your Life In Focus vision tour.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Mitchell said she’s still very much in awe amid a once-in-a-lifetime experience that has only heightened her exposure as one of Georgia’s finest makeup artists.

“One of the most surreal moments in my life,” Mitchell said of her recent appearance at Oprah Winfrey’s 2020 Your Life In Focus vision tour. “(I was blessed with the opportunity of) traveling across the world to meet women that not only I inspired but inspired me as well.”

“I absolutely love how making someone as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside,” Mitchell said. “(I love the) the reactions that I receive from my clients…how their smile and walk change and their confidence skyrockets. That’s what I love the most. I get a chance to be the reason why my clients organically smile and gain confidence and feel good.”

A native of nearby Fort Worth, Texas and a graduate of North Texas Christian Academy (who also attended Savannah High School), Mitchell said she has adopted a keen passion for customarily enhancing her clients with a unique look, courtesy of her brilliant craft through an assortment of makeups.

“While I cater to doing makeup, my brand is about all things beauty and fashion,” Mitchell said. “I always want to be better than my last greatest job, as I have always seen myself going to the top. There are so many great artists in my area. I, of course, knew that I had what it takes to be one of the greatest too.”

She certainly seems well on her to achieving such a milestone — hopefully much sooner than later, she said.


PEACH STATE SENSATION 

HIGH FIVE — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Mitchell is exhibiting an array of excitement for her immeasurable gift as thriving professional makeup artist, look no further than the commendable strides she’s made since delving off into such a competitive industry some five years ago.

Mitchell’s Eyedolized by K.Mitchell services clients ranging from 16 to 75 years of age.

“I absolutely love how making someone as beautiful on the outside as they are on the inside,” Mitchell said. “(I love the) the reactions that I receive from my clients…how their smile and walk change and their confidence skyrockets. That’s what I love the most. I get a chance to be the reason why my clients organically smile and gain confidence and feel good.”

As for amongst her key ambitions in the foreseeable future, Mitchell doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s devising ways to take her brand outside of current establishment.

IN GREAT COMPANY — Not only has Mitchell been afforded the golden opportunity to service fellow Georgia businesswoman Comia Flynn — who was recently on hand for at the Oscars during which she was a brand ambassador for the Oprah Winfrey 2020 Vision Tour — but she, too is witnessing her gift make room for her in a variety of aspects.

“My personal mission is to put smiles on people’s faces across the nation,” Mitchell says without hesitation.

Her sustained success as an accomplished businesswoman was spearheaded by her mother, Lisa Mitchell.

“She was my inspiration as a child,” Mitchell said of her mother’s tireless support. “But my very first makeup artist that I saw travel the world was Alexander Butler (of Alexandra Butler Makeup Artistry). She gave me the hope and belief that I could be in this industry and succeeded greatly.”

Mitchell’s Eyedolized by K.Mitchell services clients ranging from 16 to 75 years of age.

Because of the COVID-19 crisis, Mitchell said she’s been reduced to conducting classes and sessions via Zoom. She emphasized she’s welcomes traveling and speaking engagements — “once things are back to normal,” she said — to better educate women on the importance of quality makeovers through makeup.


“There are so many people that have not had people to pour positivity, hope, reassurance, love, or just tell them they, too, have a gift that world can’t do without,” said Mitchell, whose business was birthed amid having lost of her daughter. “And I believe that I’ve been placed here to give people that inspiration and genuine love. My daily quote is: “All that you have is all that you need.”


WELL ON HER WAY — As for amongst her key ambitions in the foreseeable future, Mitchell doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s devising ways to take her brand outside of current establishment.

All things considered, Mitchell is forever grateful that God has rescued her from a dreaded season in the wilderness, to a season of pure unwavering faith and prosperity.

“I came from (a season of) losing my daughter, to having a home where the ceilings were falling in on my son and myself to having barely anything to make a meal for us, to now having a new home,  new business, going on tour, becoming a brand ambassador and spokesperson for another brand…being a happier and healthier me,” Mitchell said.

“I take no credit for any of it. I give all praises to God for everything. I used my past for my fuel, and this is just one of the chapters to my story on how my son and I made it.”

Talk about a spiritual makeover — and comeback story — for the ages.

Georgia entrepreneur Robin N. Reeves II’s 2020 vision has come full circle with a variety of delectable seasonings


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


HARVEST SEASONING

GOD’S PLAN — A graduate of Savannah High School and a proud alum of Armstrong State University (he earned his undergraduate degree in 2015), Robin Reeves II said whipping up his Mason Jar Money Premium Seasonings has become a constant hobby, for the most part. “I love the fact that it never feels like work,” Reeves II said. “I have the power to come up with flavors, and when my products get into the hands of my customers, their responses drive me to keep going every day.”

Much to his delight, Robin N. Reeves II’s awe-inspiring 2020 vision commenced on January 1, 2020.

That is when he diligently stepped out on faith by putting his God-manifested vision on display for all the world to see.
And to embrace.
And to taste, of course.
Especially taste.
“My competitive drive comes from being into sports and people telling me that I wasn’t ready or good enough to be where I am,” Reeves II, during an interview with Making Headline News this week, said, explaining what fueled his fervent desire to jumpstart his business. “I am firm believer in Christ and I know that God doesn’t give us a spirit of fear or timidity, but a spirit of power, love, and a sound mind.”
He got that right.

Interestingly, Reeves acknowledged, each of his seasonings have been given a uniquely distinct name that is personal to him, accompanied with a special meaning behind it.

Which, fortunately for Reeves II, was a sufficient enough faith that would greatly enable him to witness Mason Jar Money Premium Seasonings, his Savannah, Georgia-based venture whereby his products are accompanied by a distinct taste and personality.

“My products are also vegan friendly and very healthy for people with health issues,” said Reeves II, adding that his Premium Seasonings are for everybody.”

Interestingly, Reeves acknowledged, each of his seasonings have been given a uniquely distinct name that is personal to him, accompanied with a special meaning behind it.

To his credit, it seems Reeves II’s Mason Jar Money Premium Seasonings are starting to turn heads outside of the state of Georgia, most notably in Clarksburg, West Virginia, as well as in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and other East Coast establishments.

For instance, his ever-so-popular Cowboy Seasoning is named after my favorite team (NFL’s Dallas Cowboys) and it is also his customers’ favorite seasoning he said. Also, this particular product has more of a savory seasoning, Reeves explained, one that gives you the idea of “a party going on in your mouth.”

And then there’s the famous Rocky Seasoning, which is named in honor of Reeves’ nickname and describes his personality (Sweet Heat).

FAMILY FOCUS — “My wife, daughter, parents, spiritual parents, siblings, cousins, grandma, aunts, uncles and my best friends who enjoy my cooking on a regular,” said Reeves II, recalling who were amongst those who inspired him to launch his business venture.

In addition, Reeves II has come up with what is known as the Port Life Seasoning, one that customarily pays homage to the neighborhood in which he was raised in Savannah.

“It’s a spicy seafood style seasoning being that we are the Sea Port City,” Reeves II said of the seasoning that named after his hood.

And then there’s the Friday Seasoning which, according to Reeves II, was named after Friday, his favorite movie growing up.

“It’s an herbal seasoning…potent with different herbs and spices,
Reeves II said of the Friday flavor.

Reeves II’s Golden Moment seasoning is comprised of a marinade, of sorts, or base called Golden Moment, which means “this is the Golden Moment you get before you cook your food,” he said.

Reeves II said each of these products can be used on “anything.”

A graduate of Savannah High School and a proud alum of Armstrong State University (he earned his undergraduate degree in 2015), Reeves II said whipping up his seasonings has become a constant hobby, for the most part.


“I love the fact that it never feels like work,” Reeves II said. “I have the power to come up with flavors, and when my products get into the hands of my customers, their responses drive me to keep going every day.”


To his credit, it seems Reeves II’s Mason Jar Money Premium Seasonings are starting to turn heads outside of the state of Georgia, most notably in Clarksburg, West Virginia, as well as in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and other East Coast establishments.

“I want to reach (consumers ranging in) ages 13 to 99, meaning if you have access to a kitchen, you can use my products,” Reeves said.

Having begun cooking when he was a tender five years of age, Reeves is grateful the fact that his 2020 vision has come full circle.

Nothing or anyone, he said, can stop what God is manifesting in his life, considering God has strategically endorsed the gifts by which He has blessed him.

GREAT FOOD, GREAT TASTE — “Every day is a day to do something great, different, and creative,” Reeves II said. “You have to seize each opportunity to be the answer to someone’s problem. Be creative and find your niche, or better yet, be the niche.”

“I can’t let what others think about me to deter me from where God wants me to be and the plans He has for my life,” Reeves II said. “So I must keep going and get my products out to the world so that everybody can experience great food and seasonings in their life.”

All the while embracing it.

And tasting it.

Especially tasting it.

AMERICA’S TEAM TRIBUTE — Reeves II’s ever-so-popular Cowboy Seasoning is named after my favorite team (NFL’s Dallas Cowboys) and it is also the customers’ favorite seasoning he said. Also, this particular product has more of a savory seasoning, Reeves explained, one that gives you the idea of “a party going on in your mouth.”

“Every day is a day to do something great, different, and creative,” Reeves II said. “You have to seize each opportunity to be the answer to someone’s problem. Be creative and find your niche, or better yet, be the niche.”

That, after all, is some pretty eloquent (seasoning) food for thought.

Much to his delight, Reeves II’s awe-inspiring 2020 vision commenced on January 1, 2020.

Young Georgia businesswoman Mariadith M. Carter savoring the best of both worlds as an entrepreneur, author

DOUBLE YOUR PLEASURE 

SEIZING THE MOMENT — After acquiring an Associate of Arts Degree from Saint Leo University, Mariadith M. Carter wasted little time delving off into the business ownership arena, having established Kab 4 Kidz Transportation Service, her Savannah, Georgia-based children’s taxi service, which is believed to be the first of its kind in that city.

For a 26-year-old, it’s safe to say that Mariadith M. Carter is wise beyond her years.

Consider, for instance, the remarkably compelling strides Carter has made in recent years in this ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry.
In fact, after acquiring an Associate of Arts Degree from Saint Leo University, Carter wasted little time delving off into the business ownership arena, having established Kab 4 Kidz Transportation Service, her Savannah, Georgia-based children’s taxi service, which is believed to be the first of its kind in that city.
“Growing up I quickly realized that my entire family were entrepreneurs,” Carter, a native of Tallahassee, Florida, told Making Headline News this week. “I knew that I would soon open my own business at just 14 years old.”

“What I love most about being in business is offering a service to busy families and jobs in my community,” said Carter, adding that she’s working on a new project that will help children with hand-washing skills. “Kab 4 Kidz caters to all family dynamics, from working mothers to single fathers.”

Much to her delight, she has been as good as advertised as a young, thriving, flourishing entrepreneur.

Never mind that Carter’s illustrious journey to achieving entrepreneurial success has come amid a rash of obstacles, a trend that, given the slew of hurdles about which she had the clear, have helped shaped and equipped her into the woman of destiny for which she is widely known.

Carter gave birth to her first child at the tender age of 17. Still, even that life-altering challenge wasn’t enough to deter her from fulfilling her educational and business-related goals.

All things considered, Carter is giddy of the notion that she has blessed to savor what undoubtedly is the best of both worlds, particularly an entrepreneur and author.

If nothing else, such an encounter only fueled her fervent desire to possess and embrace all that life has to offer — head on.

“At 17, I gave birth to my first child and that was the motivation I needed to become the woman God created me to be,” Carter said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Two years after birthing a healthy baby into the world, Carter became a full fledge business owner, all the while being the afforded the golden opportunity to routinely span the globe.

“I’ve traveled to several countries and visited countless states,” said Carter, a 2019 recipient of the T. McCoy Cornerstone Award.

That’s not all she’s done to essentially reinforce that arguably her best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

A little more than a year ago, Carter made her authorship debut when she witnessed the much-anticipated release of Tummy Tunes.

In Tummy Tunes, Carter vividly takes you on a journey of food and tunes with her daughter Hassani and friends, according to a synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

A little more than a year ago, Carter made her authorship debut when she witnessed the much-anticipated release of Tummy Tunes.

Interestingly, through song, fun, and vibrant illustrations, Hassani and friends subsequently eat broccoli, french fries, chicken, spaghetti, ice cream and other yummy foods.

A book that is comprised of 22 pages, Carter’s Tummy Tunes is available to children ranging mostly in the three-to-five-year-old age bracket.

“I published this book, because I saw the impact it had on my classroom,” Carter explained. “Before I opened Kab 4 Kidz, I was the lead preschool teacher at Kidzplace, the largest childcare facility in Garden City, Georgia.


“I had a classroom full and the children needed more than the normal story time session, so I began to create songs and books to teach and entertain them. Honestly, the children in my classroom inspired me to publish my books.” — Georgia Entrepreneur Mariadith M. Carter

“It’s imperative that my story is known, because many people get discouraged about life when things aren’t working in their favor,” Carter added. “But if you stay driven and keep God as the apple of your eye, your vision will come to reality.”

Even at a tender 27 years of age.

Oh, and she certainly can’t forget world renowned producer and playwright Tyler Perry for what she describes as a “commitment to the process.”

All things considered, these empowering, beloved and globally acclaimed individuals are whom Dr. White credits for having helped shape her life for what it has become to this very day.

Atlanta entrepreneur Comia Flynn’s gifts making room for her, bringing her before prominent personalities


A man’s gift maketh room for him, and bringeth him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 KJV)


‘IN LIKE FLYNN’

MASSIVE THING OF BEAUTY — A business endeavor that spans two decades, Comia Flynn’s Flynn Style is widely known for empowering and equipping  women to feel confident about themselves, feel confident about their wardrobe and, most importantly, to inspire them to adorn to their weight size regardless of the number.

Don’t you dare get it twisted.

The above Biblical passage isn’t merely referring to men only, mind you.
Rather, it is alluding to all of God’s children, to put it more precisely.
Especially Comia Flynn, an Atlanta-based entrepreneur, who is the face of ever-so-popular Flynn Style.
A business endeavor that spans some two decades, Flynn’s Flynn Style is widely known for empowering and equipping  women to feel confident about themselves, feel confident about their wardrobe and, most importantly, to inspire them to adorn to their weight size regardless of the number.
For Flynn, a native of Savannah, Georgia who strategically applies Matthew 10:18-20 to her everyday living, her progressive, thriving company undoubtedly has made room for her and, much to her delight, placed her before a slew of great individuals, most notably the legendary Oprah Winfrey.

“I get to impact and walk the red carpet with notable stars and celebrities and share events as they pertain to the common good of people,” Flynn, 52, told Making Headline News this week. “I also get to attend exciting events for notable causes and various organizations.”

Interestingly, Flynn was on hand recently at the Oscars during which she was a brand ambassador for the Oprah Winfrey 2020 Vision Tour.

Arguably one of her most memorable interviews includes having conversed with world renown producer and director D. Channsin Berry in preparation for his notable documentary, “Sexuality in The Black Church.”

STAR WATCH — For Flynn, a native of Savannah, Georgia, her progressive, thriving company undoubtedly has made room for her and, much to her delight, placed her before a slew of great individuals, most notably the legendary Oprah Winfrey.

As for her awe-inspiring brand, which has given way to a considerable amount of success for the Savannah State University alum, Flynn acknowledged that her rise and sustained success as an accomplished businesswoman has greatly afforded her with the productive, carefree lifestyle for which she has longed for quite some time.

“I like the sense of freedom that being an entrepreneur provides,” Flynn said. “I like the sense of style and personality that I am able to add to my business. Unlike working for companies, I am able to address the needs that I feel are important in the times that they are important.”

PRESSED DOWN, BUT NOT DESTROYED — For Flynn, her journey to entrepreneurship success wasn’t an easy task in any way, shape or form. She recalls those downtrodden school days during which she was routinely bullied and made fun of.

As for her constant and immeasurable impact on like-minded women, well, such a trend is priceless for the most part, Flynn hints.

“I like the impact that I have on other women and other entrepreneurs and businesspeople to reach for their dreams aspire to be more than they were the day before,” Flynn explained. “I like opportunities that my business has placed me in my platform have placed me in. I like the notion of getting to know different people in different areas from all walks of life and having the commonality of business.”

A district coordinator for the YMCA of nearby Coastal, Georgia, Flynn’s business venture accommodates individuals and groups of all ages.


“I feel as though my platform reaches the masses if I’m discussing wait and weight, for example,” said Flynn, alluding to her book entitled, ‘Does Your Weight Make You Wait.’ “(I’m committed to) reaching any target audience of people who have battled weight loss or who have put things off on hold, because they felt as though they did not meet the description or the depiction of what society wanted to see or needed to see you at that given moment.”


By and large, Flynn credits Viola Flynn, her beloved grandmother, having paved the way to her entrepreneurial success.

“She was a woman that stood six feet in stature, dark complexion, and beautiful white hair,” Flynn said of her grandmother and greatest mentor. “She was that woman who heard nothing in my eyes. She taught me the value of never looking down on people…from the janitor to the CEO.”

As for her awe-inspiring brand, which has given way to a considerable amount of success for the Savannah State University alum, Flynn acknowledged that her rise and sustained success as an accomplished businesswoman has greatly afforded her with the productive, carefree lifestyle for which she has longed for quite some time.

For Flynn, her journey to entrepreneurship success wasn’t an easy task in any way, shape or form. She recalls those downtrodden school days, in fact, during which she was routinely bullied and made fun of.

Still, she was determined to press and navigate her way to success — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I vowed to myself when I became an adult, I would never allow people to mistreat me or any other person that had weight issues,” Flynn said. “I remember wanting to design more fashionable clothes for plus size people, but now I refer to us as ‘Luxebody Women.’ My parents were both inspiring to me as well.”


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

Interestingly, Flynn was on hand recently at the Oscars during which she was a brand ambassador for the Oprah Winfrey 2020 Vision Tour.

To her distinctly unique credit, it certainly shows.

So, don’t you dare get it twisted.

The above Biblical passage isn’t merely referring to men only, mind you.

Rather, it is alluding to all of God’s children, by all accounts.

Especially Comia Flynn.

Chicago businesswoman Tabitha Purifoy making monumental strides through her newly-erected nonprofit organization


Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. (Philippians 2:3 NKJV)


TAP-PING INTO SUCCESS

REPRESENTIN’ THE CHI — A native of Camden, Arkansas who presently resides in Chicago, Tabitha Purifoy, 47, is the mastermind behind TAP, a rising Illinois-based nonprofit organization that was organized to help people identify and decide on the next chapter in their lives.

Tabitha Purifoy has always been armed with a servant’s heart.

To her credit, she doesn’t mind reminding the world of it.
“I love helping people,” Purifoy, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining specifically what she loves the most about her current business venture. “The smallest things mean so much to those that I’ve helped.”

Much to her delight, coupled with the fact that she is walking fervently in the purpose for which she was created, Purifoy’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she deems it therapeutic to empower others become a better version of themselves.

As Purifoy acknowledged, amongst her strategic ambitions is to eventually oversee the day-to-day operations of her newly-establish nonprofit organization on a full-time basis.

“I’m a natural giver,” Purifoy said of her business venture that figures to become a fixture throughout Chicago’s massive Metroplex, much sooner than later. “I have always been a person who loves to give and help people identify and decide on their next chapter in their lives.”

An acronym that stands for Turning Around Programs, Purifoy’s TAP is a relatively new organization yet, fortunately for this progressive, thriving businesswoman, it is already enjoying a considerable amount of success, given it has begun to attract the attention of the media.

HEART OF GOLD — “I love helping people,” Purifoy, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining specifically what she loves the most about her current business venture. “The smallest things mean so much to those that I’ve helped.”

Talk about witnessing what undoubtedly seems to be some positive signs of things to come.

A successful Corporate America profession who works as a Chicago-area Human Resources Director, Purifoy is certainly armed with the educational credentials which, to her credit, has afforded her the golden opportunity to make a business-related dream a reality.

Upon graduating high school, earned a degree in Public Administration from Texas Southern University.

As Purifoy acknowledged, amongst her strategic ambitions is to eventually oversee the day-to-day operations of her newly-establish nonprofit organization on a full-time basis.

Given the immeasurable she’s made since its much-anticipated inception, she seems well on her way to accomplishing such a feat.


“I know my purpose and vision,” Purifoy said. “I’m actually an HR Director at a nonprofit organization now, but my goal is to get my nonprofit organization up and running not only here in Chicago, but in Houston, Ohio, Arkansas, and many other states eventually.”


At the rate this opportunistic business professional is going, her quest to bring about a national attraction to TAP appears highly attainable.

“My kids have been my motivation,” said Purifoy, when asked who are amongst those who have greatly inspired her to exercise her faith through the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship.

A successful Corporate America profession who works as a Chicago-area Human Resources Director, Purifoy is certainly armed with the educational credentials which, to her credit, has afforded her the golden opportunity to make a business-related dream a reality.

Interestingly, Purifoy announced that she has started what is known as the “Dress To Impress” campaign, an up-and-coming endeavor whereby she’s accepting the donations of slightly used casual clothing, many of which will be given to someone who aspires to pursue a professional or business-related career.

“I have been doing this since I was able to share (with the masses about my nonprofit). “If you ever ask anyone about me, they would all agree if I have a whole pie, I will always share,” Purifoy said.

That, by all accounts, practically sums up why she customarily exhibits a servant’s heart, one in which she doesn’t mind reminding the world of it.

FedEx Corporation Executives partake in recent tour of UNICOR’s Operations in Forrest City, Arkansas

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

FRESH START — In July 2019, Dr. Belay Reddick urged FedEx Corp. Executive Vice President and CFO Alan B. Graf, Jr. in a letter to visit the UNICOR inmates because they were more likely to find and keep meaningful employment, and hiring them can pay big dividends for his company.

FORREST CITY, Arkansas — If re-entry involvement could be attributed to personal rehabilitation, Dr. Belay Reddick could well be the banner bearer.

Dr. Reddick, 51, is an accomplished author and is a current incarcerated.
Interestingly, Reddick garnered praise for bringing FedEx Corporation executives to UNICOR, a vital correctional program within the Federal Bureau of Prisons, for a tour of its furniture factory and to speak with the offenders who participate in the UNICOR program about employability skills needed for the workforce in early February.
Attendees included Barb Wallander, Senior Vice President of Human Resources, Brandon Tolbert, Vice President of Human Resources, Rosemary Paden, Human Resources Advisor to Barb Wallander, Frank Olson, National Trainer, and Marlon Sanders, National Recruiter.

Dr. Reddick is the re-entry clerk for UNICOR in Forrest City, Arkansas, a company that customarily produces office furniture for the U.S. military. He is tasked with helping UNICOR inmates approaching release from custody get back on their feet. His goal is to ease the transition of inmates back into society, connecting them with jobs, housing and other resources.

“Learning, teamwork, putting customers first, and strong communication skills are all important in having a successful career,” Wallander recently told a crowd of roughly 130 inmates. “If you put the hard work in now, it’ll pay off later.”

Wallander added that FedEx Corp. will hire an ex-felon, provided the individual can pass a drug test and his date of conviction was at least 10 years ago.

In 2016, Dr. Reddick received media attention for hosting 12 senior advisors from the Obama administration at the Atlanta federal prison to hear a debate of three inmates with lengthy custodial sentences challenge a team of three Morehouse College undergraduates.

Tolbert offered tips as well, mentioning that he recently hired an ex-felon. Tolbert told the group of men that he believes in second chances.

“Always take 100 percent responsibility. Think like an owner. Play offense. Leave a legacy,” Tolbert said.

After giving motivating and inspiring highlights of their careers, the FedEx Corp. team conducted highly effective mock job interviews. Interestingly, the team provided critical feedback to the UNICOR inmates regarding their resumes content, eye contact, posture, communication skills, personal appearance, and overall job interview performance.

The team then viewed a 10-minute PowerPoint presentation about UNICOR Forrest City’s state-of-the-art equipment, and the various training inmates receive in the program.

A native of Jacksonville, Dr. Reddick is a licensed minister, author, publisher and motivational speaker. A Paxon Senior High graduate, Dr. Reddick attended Florida Community College at Jacksonville, Hillsborough Community College, as well as the Goshen Biblical Institute & Theological Seminary and NationsUniversity.

In July 2019, Dr. Reddick urged FedEx Corp. Executive Vice President and CFO Alan B. Graf, Jr. in a letter to visit the UNICOR inmates because they were more likely to find and keep meaningful employment, and hiring them can pay big dividends for his company.

Three months later, FedEx Corp. contacted Operational Accountant Marilyn Phelix who retired last December about Dr. Reddick’s letter, and the opportunity to visit the inmates in 2020.

Dr. Reddick’s personal story is worthy of a Charles Dickens novel, according to sources with knowledge of his situation.

Prior to his conviction in 2005 for engaging in an illegal check passing scheme, Dr. Reddick was a homeless man, living in his car. He says that was an “idiotic thing to do.”

Consequently, he was sentenced to 20 years in prison, far from his family in Jacksonville, Florida.

He found himself in a gloomy place, surrounded by negativity and looking for a chance to help others who have taken wrong turns in life. It’s the kind of story prison staff members rarely see.


“I’m a proud, rehabilitated returning citizen,” Dr. Reddick said. “The things I’ve had to contend with have shaped me as a much better man and a much better person.”


In 2016, Dr. Reddick received media attention for hosting 12 senior advisors from the Obama administration at the Atlanta federal prison to hear a debate of three inmates with lengthy custodial sentences challenge a team of three Morehouse College undergraduates.

“We have so many barriers in place,” says Dr. Reddick of finding employment post-incarceration. “If I can change that, then my living won’t be in vain.”

To his credit, Dr. Reddick plans to bring other major U.S. companies to UNICOR such as Amazon and Walmart. He estimates these reentry events will help between 300 to 600 inmates a year. The men there, he added, will be able to take care of themselves and their families financially, helping to make communities safer.

A native of Jacksonville, Dr. Reddick is a licensed minister, author, publisher and motivational speaker. A Paxon Senior High graduate, Dr. Reddick attended Florida Community College at Jacksonville, Hillsborough Community College, as well as the Goshen Biblical Institute & Theological Seminary and NationsUniversity.

“It’s an effective way to help reduce high recidivism rates. I want to bring these companies in to benefit inmates scheduled to be release from custody within 6 months. That’s good for the prison, and it’s an awesome collaboration effort. It really provides inmates with hope, and it’s why I’m doing it,” Dr. Reddick said.

“I just thank God for having the full support of UNICOR General Manager Dennis Merrion. This is something that the Federal Bureau of Prisons should be excited about, and it all started with my letter.”

Houston businesswoman Raevonne Walker’s Cultured Realty growing in unprecedented numbers

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — An accomplished businesswoman who boasts a remarkably solid and immeasurable entrepreneurship tenure, Raevonne Walker is co-owner of Cultured Realty, a Houston-based real estate company she runs along with fellow business partner Janelle Malone.

DALLAS — When Raevonne Walker and her son packed up and relocated from Minnesota to Texas some 15 years ago, what they had ultimately discovered was that such a move was a prodigious blessing in disguise.

Prior to their bolting the Minneapolis-Saint Paul area, Walker was informed by doctors that her son, Jahyier, was diagnosed with a rare heart defect, thus suggesting that they relocate to the southern region of the country, considering her son had been hampered by what she described as “some underlying issues.”
Given the severe circumstances surrounding her son’s health, not only was the move essential in many aspects but, much to the delight of Walker, it turned out to be a precursor, of sorts, to her having connected with the divine purpose for which she was created.
An accomplished businesswoman who boasts a remarkably solid and immeasurable entrepreneurship tenure, Walker is co-owner of Cultured Realty, a Houston-based real estate company she runs along with fellow business partner Janelle Malone.
A rising establishment that is located at 2611 Cypress Creek Parkway, Suite A101 in Houston and is less than two months removed from having gone into full operations, one would hard-pressed to believe this company is in its infancy stages, considering it’s already enjoying a considerable amount of growth.

MORE ON CULTURED REALTY: https://www.culturedrealty.com/

During a phone interview with Making Headline News this week, Walker said Cultured Realty has compiled a team of 41 agents since its inception and that she’s hopeful such rapid growth continues.

A company that was founded on February 8, 2020, Walker — who was fixture for years for Keller Williams Realty — emphasized, among other things, that Cultured Realty is aiming to acquire 150 agents by the time the company reaches its six-month anniversary.

“It was a different situation, because with me coming from Keller Williams, I pretty much knew what I wanted to do,” Walker told MHN. (I told my business partner) we have all of what we need to start a company.”

ALL-STAR TEAM — Part of helping agents to diligently discover a better version of themselves falls under the Business Coaching umbrella of Cultured Realty. Through this entity, in fact, Walker and Malone customarily shepherd agents through a wide range of empowerment sessions, many of which are geared toward helping them devise strategic plans to create and achieve specific goals and ambitions, coupled with what Walker refers to as some much-needed “accountability.”

As Walker recalls, her rise to professional real estate success was spearheaded in large part by her son’s unlikely diagnosis, coupled with a whole lot of faith.

“It was amazing,” Walker said of her ceremonious exit from Minnesota to the Lone Star State, a development that had ultimately given way to considerable progress in her son’s health. “He started playing football. He scored the first touchdown for his new high school. He was ranked (nationally) in gymnastics.”

Aside from Jahyier having evolved and flourished as a multi-sport athlete, Walker, meanwhile, began moving ever so closely to her purpose as gifted real estate professional, a God-orchestrated discovery she doesn’t merely take lightly.


“If we wouldn’t have moved, I wouldn’t have started this company,” Walker said. “I wouldn’t have gotten married. I wouldn’t have had two more children. (This move) changed my life completely.”


One of Houston’s finest real estate ventures that boasts a diverse cast of leaders who are committed to building business through strong alliances, Cultured Realty has reaped sustained success, in large part because it thrives off of empowering agents to believe the unbelievable, think the unthinkable, and achieve the unachievable.

How else to explain why its mission is centered largely on Agents building agents with systems that work?

As for the rapid growth within a company whose best and brightest days are seemingly well ahead of it, Walker is confident such a trend is a continuous sign of things to come.


RAISING THE BAR 

MINNEAPOLIS MIRACLE — Given the severe circumstances surrounding her son’s health, not only was the move essential in many aspects but, much to the delight of Walker, it turned out to be a precursor, of sorts, to her having connected with the divine purpose for which she was created.

“To me, it’s not mind-boggling,” said Walker, alluding to the number of agents her company has acquired in such a brief time frame. “The growth doesn’t make that big of a deal to me. The growth in the individual is what’s more important.”

All things considered, part of helping agents to diligently discover a better version of themselves falls under the Business Coaching umbrella of Cultured Realty.

Through this entity, in fact, Walker and Malone customarily shepherd agents through a wide range of empowerment sessions, many of which are geared toward helping them devise strategic plans to create and achieve specific goals and ambitions, coupled with what Walker refers to as some much-needed “accountability.”

“I’m always trying to be better than myself,” said Walker, a progressive, thriving businesswoman whose entrepreneurship reputation is such that she’s thoroughly committed to ensuring that like-minded professionals follow suit.

What a massive difference a relocation has made.

ON THE MOVE — A rising establishment that is located at 2611 Cypress Creek Parkway, Suite A101 in Houston and is less than two months removed from having gone into full operations, one would hard-pressed to believe this company is in its infancy stages, considering it’s already enjoying a considerable amount of growth.
