Is Mid-South entrepreneur Kyjione King the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret?

 

A THING OF BEAUTY 

RAISING THE BAR — When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics. King, 31, is the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

DALLAS — Please don’t get it twisted.

When it comes to pole fitness, Kyjione King would be the first to enlighten the masses that there are a slew of life-enhancing, confidence-building benefits surrounding an ever-so-popular activity that will soon become a sport in the Olympics.

That’s not all, said King, the founder and CEO of Kiki Dance Studio LLC told Making Headline News this week.

“(This kind activity) is kid friendly,” King said.

To grasp a thorough concept of why King’s divine purpose is connected largely to a pole fitness adventure that is steadily attracting more of a global presence, look no further than the assortment of hurdles about which she had to clear, particularly during her youth.

For years, King, 31, admittedly had struggled with low self-esteem and, as she put it forthrightly, “I definitely know how those who don’t feel as confident. I can relate.”

That certainly isn’t the case today for King, a Jonesboro, Arkansas-based businesswoman, who’s widely known also as a certified fitness group trainer through the American Sports and Fitness Association.

AIM HIGH — As King acknowledged, her rise to becoming the pole fitness industry’s best kept secret stemmed from her past struggles with getting her weight under control.

A native of Blytheville, Arkansas, King’s Kiki Dance Studio is located at 721 South Gee Street, Unit A, in Jonesboro.

As for King’s progressive, thriving business venture, Diverse Pole Fitness studio customarily offers a variety of exercises with the pole as a strategically unique way to build strength and confidence while focusing on weight loss.

“We believe that pole fitness will provide a healthier and longer life,” said King, whose experience in her selected industry spans roughly five years. “Pole fitness helps with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.”

Most importantly, King acknowledged, her company is committed to providing its clients with a safe and clean studio.  “Our mission is to provide a warm, supportive, and creative atmosphere to satisfy customers through core conditioning, flexibility training, and pole fitness,” King said. “Kiki Dance Studio is a place where you can feel comfortable and attractive, while increasing your self- confidence and self-esteem.”

All things considered, media pundits worldwide are starting to become knowledgeable of just how much pole fitness essentially has become a globally-acclaimed activity, not to mention a way of life for many who have come to embrace what undoubtedly is a beloved sport.

According to a report at https://www.lifehack.org/, when people hear about fitness and the health benefits of different forms of workouts, they seldom think about pole dancing as a viable option. Much like some popular Latino dances like tango, which started out in shady back alleys of poor neighborhoods only to later gain popularity across the globe, pole dancing has quickly become a very popular form of exercise and even a competitive event, according to the Life Hack report.

That’s not all.

According to the Life Hack report, not only is pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

“My personal mission for doing this work is to build confidence and improve the health in every woman that I encounter,” said King, whose immeasurable talents through pole fitness have been discovered in a variety of places around the countries.


“Our facility offers a variety of different classes such as ‘Twist It Like Kiki,’ which is sensational flexibility training class as we focus on targeting key areas of the body to gain and improve your flexibility and mobility.

In addition, King’s studio offers what is known as Pole Body Bootcamp, which is deemed an “intense powered workout,” she said.

“We also offer Succulent Motion, which is one of the most important parts of a pole dance routine, because it gives you a break between exhausting and challenging pole moves and holds, as well as gives more room for expressive dancing,” King explained. “It allows you to freely move your body in a more creative and expressive way so that your dance works with the music lyrics and not against it.”

MAKING MASSIVE HEADLINES — King, whose Kiki Dance Studio is three years removed from having gone into operations, was especially appreciative of the fact that the mainstream media is starting to observe pole fitness for what it is: a credible and effective way to help with your psychological and emotional health in reducing stress.

It wasn’t long thereafter that pole fitness had ultimately emerged as her passion, which connected her with her vision, which connected her with her purpose. Her divine purpose, that is.

Look at her today, basking in the glory of her element unlike never before — which, to her credit, is a far cry from those days she found herself struggling to outlast self-esteem.

“I was inspired by taking a class myself for weight loss,” King said. “I use to weigh 223 pounds at the time and seen how it was such a fun workout, and even the warm-ups were dynamic. I pushed and pushed, even my children encouraged me to do so as they pole as well, and we offer ‘Mommy and Me’ classes.”


WE’RE ALL IN

DID YOU KNOW? According to the Life Hack report, not only pole fitness a great way to embrace your inner sexiness, but it also has numerous health benefits that shouldn’t be overlooked.

At the end of the real day, all that matters for this accomplished Mid-South-area entrepreneur is that she’s gone to her great lengths to defy arguably the grandest of odds, a journey that ultimately steered her to her destiny.

“I had gone through a horrible divorce and I needed to find myself again,” said King, a certified CPR and first aid certified specialist whose community service includes having participated in the 2018 Black Beach in Biloxi, Mississippi, the Jonesboro Salvation Army’s Toy Drives for Christmas, as well as having sponsored the 2017 Kids Day Jonesboro.

“I completely lost who I was, and once I began taking these classes, I felt undefeated and seen a total transformation of myself. I was so amazed, and ever since then, it’s been constant self-motivation and determination.”

So don’t get it twisted.

Atlanta-area author Lisa Duffey takes another step toward her destiny in ‘I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.’


I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 NIV)


DALLAS — It was a rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in Lisa Duffey’s life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

“I got the vision about three years ago but never acted on it,” Duffey, an Atlanta-area author, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the memorable, emotionally-driven developments that led to her contributing to a soon-to-be released book. “It was just too painful. Then I began to see women coming out, talking about their experiences regarding sexual abuse and domestic violence.”


GOD’S VIRTUOUS WOMAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Hempstead, New York, Lisa Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

A native of Hempstead, New York, Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

An awe-inspiring, spiritually gut-checking project that is forwarded by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens, the sophomore edition of “I Am A Black Woman” is widely known as “One Voice” and addresses a variety of pertinent topics — most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

 

For Duffey, that she was afforded the golden opportunity to share of her life-enhancing experiences in the second edition of this book, by all accounts, was a defining moments in the life of a woman who knows full well she’s been set aside for God’s use.

“I was approached by one of the co-authors and found out they were working on this project,” Duffey explained. “That is when I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I was ready to tell my story.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

That’s because not only has Duffey dauntlessly disclosed of her assortment of testimonies while fortifying pure boldness and confidence but, more than anything, it seems that joining forces with a gallery of Christian-oriented authors has become a clear path toward her purpose.

Her destiny, too.


FOR IT IS WRITTEN…

“I chose to write this chapter, because I needed to heal from past hurts — physically and emotionally — and also let other women know that this kind of behavior should not be tolerated from the men in their life,” said Duffey, recalling her stormy, tumultuous past that was mired by her being victimized by a dark season of child molestation.

“I put up with it from age 14 to 30.  As I began to put my story on paper, I realized I had things locked away in secret places in my mind, and as those places were opened, I began to forgive those that had hurt me.”

To her credit, the more she customarily grasped the power of forgiveness, the more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound.


THE FIGHT WAS FIXED

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS — For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

The more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound, the more God began to steer her toward her purpose.

The more God began to steer her toward her purpose, the more she began to discover just how much her immeasurable gifts were needed, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

Look at her today, a true, big-hearted and devout woman of faith, pressing and navigating mightily toward her destiny for such a spirited, life-changing time as now.

Yep. That’s just like God.


“God has and is still using me to show empathy and compassion for women who have or are going through what I went through,” said Duffey, explaining how “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” has become part of the purpose for which God has created her. “It’s easy to tell someone to leave a horrible relationship when they have not been through one. Since I been through it all, I get it…some women just can’t pick up and leave. They have to stay and endure the hardship and pain. Those on the outside should be there for them and not be judgmental.”


Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

And with “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” set to be released in the coming months, this brilliant and talent author has already become the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback.

So much for the rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in her life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

That was then.

This is now.

STAY TUNED — Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

A new season, accompanied by new memories, accompanied new mercies — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“It’s been rough, watching my dad beat my mother constantly and trying kill her in front of us,” Duffey said. “Becoming a teenage girl and being beaten constantly, mistreated, beaten up, raped, sodomized…I can go on and on.  I felt hopeless.”

Still, amongst the things that Duffey has ultimately discovered is that in spite of her slew of hell and high water encounters, God had miraculous plans for her life.

“One day, I did a simple equation, 2-1=1,” Duffey recalled. “I realized that if I took myself out of the equation, that meant 1 less headache — the man in my life — and that’s what I finally did after so many years.  At 56 (years of age), I am married to a wonderful man. (I’m a) mother of six wonderful adult children, I have three stepchildren, 10 grandchildren, been on my job as a tax analyst for 32 years, and married to a wonderful man named Keith Duffey.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for us an emphatic, memorable way of escape.

Ohio businesswoman Roselinde Ngozi creating a global buzz as an empowerment extraordinaire

Although there is such a thing as a competitive drive, Roselinde Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s customarily ignores it.

After all, as far as she’s concerned, that isn’t merely a bad thing.

“I ignore life’s competitive drive. It can be distracting,” Ngozi told Making Headline News this week. “Instead, I focus on creating, not competition…creativity.”


RAISING THE BAR 

PURE CLASS — A gifted and notable speaker whose craft caters mainly to people ranging in ages 28 to 52  — to those who have experienced divorce, bad break ups, or romantic pains, Roselinde Ngozi acknowledges — this Ohio businesswoman’s eloquent voice is steadily attracting more of a global presence.

Speaking of creativity, Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s also overwhelmingly creative, most notably as a women empowerment speaker, as well as an accomplished recording artist.

A Columbus, Ohio businesswoman, Ngozi is the mastermind the forthcoming single entitled, “Girl Gotta Grow” or #GGG, a hit that will be officially released in the coming days, the Nigerian native announced earlier this week.

“Although life and business are highly competitive, I do my best not to get entangled with competing,” Ngozi said. “I focus inwardly and upward to avoid being distracted by life’s competitive drive. I like to win, though winning to me is doing my best, giving my best, and mastering my best.”

MASSIVE IMPACT — Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s also overwhelmingly creative, most notably as a women empowerment speaker, as well as an accomplished recording artist.

For Ngozi, 39, she certainly has gone to great lengths to put forth a masterful, immeasurable display, particularly with regards to establishing creativity through her brand which, in essence, has set her apart from other businesswomen who engage in a similar line of work.

For what it’s worth, though, she credits much of her sustained success to the sometimes challenging “process,” in large part because she’s knows full well that in order to achieve greatness, one must trust the dreaded process.


“What I like most about being in business is the process. The work it takes to become an authentic brand inward and (outward). I enjoy the results…to see women engaged in their healing, reminding them of their power and willingness and readiness to take action to become better.” — Roselinde Ngozi


For what it’s worth, Ngozi credits much of her sustained success to the sometimes challenging “process,” in large part because, well, she’s knows full well that in order to achieve greatness, one must trust the dreaded process.

A gifted and notable speaker whose craft caters mainly to people ranging in ages 28 to 52  — or to those who have experienced divorce, bad break ups, or romantic pains, Ngozi acknowledges — this Ohio businesswoman’s eloquent voice is steadily attracting more of a global presence.

That, to her credit, is especially vital, considering many of Ngozi’s peers sense that her best and brightest days in her selected profession are well ahead of her.

“My personal mission is to help women heal,” Ngozi says without hesitation. “Women are powerful beings. I believe when a woman heals a nation rises. My expertise is healing and growth management.”

GLOBAL PRESENCE — An empowerment speaking career that spans 15 years, Ngozi’s credibility has soared in recent years, courtesy of her regular appearances by way of international broadcasting, radio interviews, and social media.

And then there is her featured message, one Ngozi has adopted as her own, thus applied to her immeasurable movement in the process.

“My message is to call out the victim mentality and challenge women to take responsibility and action in three fundamental areas: emotions, relationship, and finance,” Ngozi said.

An empowerment speaking career that spans 15 years, Ngozi’s credibility has soared in recent years, courtesy of her regular appearances by way of international broadcasting, radio interviews, and social media.

BLAZING HIT — A Columbus, Ohio businesswoman, Ngozi is the mastermind the forthcoming single entitled, “Girl Gotta Grow” or #GGG, a hit that is will be officially released in the coming days, the  Nigerian native announced earlier this week.

“It’s imperative personally to be sure I break the cycle of my mother’s brokenness in order to protect my daughter’s innocence,” Ngozi said. “I am a Nigerian woman, raised in America. I have searched for my Nigerian father — just found him — and is on my way back to reunite with (him). This is significant, because I am the first born daughter to an IGBO (one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa). man. He is the elder of the village, honorary chieftain and a  Bishop.”

That Ngozi is preparing to return to her native establishment is a “huge deal,” she said, largely because connecting with her father is, in many aspects, synonymous to her quest to having connected with her God-given purpose.

VALIANT LEADERSHIP — “My personal mission is to help women heal,” Ngozi says without hesitation. “Women are powerful beings. I believe when a woman heals a nation rises. My expertise is healing and growth management.”

“As a first-born daughter, (my) story is significant, because finding my father was a part of my personal healing management plan, which is what I share and present to women in workshops and as a keynote speaker.”

Eloquently stated by this progressive, thriving businesswoman, whose reputation is such that she customarily ignores life’s competitive drive.

That, after all, that isn’t merely a bad thing.

South Carolina author Cherell Evans Latimer’s books empowering women to overpower domestic violence


And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)


IN A GOOD PLACE

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A book that Cherell Evans Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

Cherell Evans Latimer doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has a spiritual place.

As far as she’s concerned, she’s destined to go to great lengths to protect it all cost.

Consider, for instance, how Latimer’s proverbial spiritual place was essentially challenged, particularly during a time in which God was strategically positioning her to engage in a life-changing assignment.

As Latimer recalled, it all unfolded about a year or so ago.

“(In) January of 2018, I was focusing on my relationship with God more and more,” Latimer told Making Headline News this week. “I couldn’t find any books that interest me. I would usually read paranormal fictions, but they were disrupting my spiritual place.”

Ahhh…


PURCHASE CHERELL’S BOOKS HERE: https://acepublishing.org/

GOD’S PLAN — A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

So that is when Latimer had begun to witness her life’s much-anticipated turning point, one that had ultimately catapulted her to what undoubtedly has become a ceremoniously chapter in the process.

“When I searched for Christian fiction (books), I didn’t find anything that would keep me interested, so God gave me this story line,” Latimer said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOR STARTERS — A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.” That book was published June 2017.

And just like that, Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months removed since it was officially published.

A book that Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

And here’s the real shocker that’s essentially crippling the modern-day church, according to this brilliant writer:


“It’s more stressful, it seems, for the married Christians,” Latimer said of the dreaded trend that is domestic violence. “Especially if you’re a pastor, deacon, or community leader. People that are well known are held to a higher standard and it would be world news if these private lives were exposed. I wanted to show people that God still hears and remembers you.  You may not see it, but He is working on your behalf.”

VISION UNFOLDING — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Latimer, a domestic violence survivor, eloquently said, “That God is real. His angels are real and there is life after domestic violence. My goal is to reach those that won’t go to church, but still love a good read…those that believe in God, but are still stuck in the world’s way of living. God can fix any mess you may be in.”

However, once she commenced to constructing a book that figures to impact countless of lives throughout the Body of Christ and can be purchased at https://acepublishing.org/, she was reminded, among other things, that God had essentially singled her out to write a book for such a critical time as now.

A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.”

That book was published June 2017.

Now with “Castdown: God Remembers You” presently on the market, Latimer has announced that other books are forthcoming, most notably “Castdown 2: God Is Pleased,” which is projected to hit the market this summer.


WOMAN OF PURPOSE 

ARRANGED AND APPOINTED BY GOD — Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months since it was officially published.

To her credit, she’s become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the release of her latest book.

“(Check out the) reviews from amazon,” said Latimer, who has already taken part in a few book signings since the release of her latest written document. “(People say it is) easy read and the characters you care about. I love the intertwining of the Word with the storyline and characters, and (people are) looking forward to the next book. It’s a great book for women in similar situations.”

Because after all, our spiritual place somewhat by which we must protect at all cost.

The rich history surrounding The Robinson Farmland: What you need to know


THE LEGACY CONTINUES…

PASSING THE TORCH — For what it’s worth, Gerone Robinson’s grandparents, the late John T. Robinson Sr. (aka J.T. Robinson) and his wife, Vashti Robinson, instilled in him — and the rest of his family — a slew of lessons that would greatly enhance and add value to their lives. Amongst the pertinent lessons Robinson and Co. weren’t taught: how to assume responsibility as resourceful businessmen and businesswomen.

For what it’s worth, Gerone Robinson’s grandparents instilled in him — and the rest of his family — a slew of lessons that would greatly enhance and add value to their lives.

Amongst the pertinent lessons Robinson and Co. weren’t taught: how to assume responsibility as resourceful businessmen and businesswomen.

“Before we headed back home to California, while at the gas station as we said our goodbyes, my dad hugged me and at that time,” Robinson, during an interview from California this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the disheartening, emotionally-driven developments surrounding his father, who apparently was on the brink of death. “I started crying, because I had a gut feeling that I would not see my father anymore.”

SHOW ME THE LANDMARK 

HERE IT IS — As Robinson appropriately explained, it is, by all accounts, a massive, monumental challenge, one he and the rest of the family have dubbed the Background Of The Robinson Farmland, which is housed in Dunklin County, Missouri, a rural establishment that is located in the historic Bootheel of the state, a town that is comprised of roughly 31,953 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.
As it turned out, that was the final time that Robinson had witnessed his father alive. But not before he was given some advice that would change the overall landscape of his life — as well as the lives of the rest of his family.

“He whispered in my ear, ‘You’re my gift, Fix what I have broken,’” Robinson said. “I didn’t know how bad things were until my father passed in June 2014.”

Since his father’s demise, Robinson and his family have been thrust in a fold that includes, among other things, collectively carrying the mantle handed down to them by his beloved father.

During a recent exclusive interview with MHN, Robinson explained at length a somewhat challenging and hurdle for which he and his family have been left to clear.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

As Robinson appropriately explained, it is, by all accounts, a massive, monumental challenge, one he and the rest of the family have dubbed the Background Of The Robinson Farmland, which is housed in Dunklin County, Missouri, a rural establishment that is located in the historic Bootheel of the state, a town that is comprised of roughly 31,953 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

As Robinson told to Making Headline News, here is a thorough overview of the Background Of The Robinson Farmland.

 

Our farmland legal description: The East 40 acres of that part of the West half of the Northeast Quarter, lying North of Drainage Ditch No. 6, also known as Belfountain Ditch, of Section 21, Township 16 North, Range 10 East of the Fifth Principal Meridian, Dunklin County Missouri, belonging to our late grandparents, John T. Robinson Sr. (aka J.T. Robinson) and his wife, Vashti Robinson. My grandmother Vashti Robinson passed on April 25, 1979, while married to my grandfather J.T. Robinson Sr.

My grandfather began renting his farmland in the early 1970’s until his death on January 10, 1991. After the passing of my grandfather, his children became the heirs of the farmland. There was very little communication between my father, the late Robert Lee Robinson Sr., and his siblings after the passing of my grandfather. My father began overseeing the farmland from 1991 until his passing in June 2014.

In early 2014, prior to my father’s passing, I received a phone call from my father. He asked if me and my brother, Edwin, could come to Kansas City so he could take us to learn about the farmland, because he was getting older.


“At the time, me and my brother didn’t know our father had terminal cancer. My nephew, Robert Burton, my brother Edwin, and myself went to Kansas City. Once we arrived in Kansas City, while we was at our hotel with my father, I asked my father why isn’t the whole family not involved with what is going on with the land.” — Gerone Robinson 


My father explained the family was apart, because of a bad decision that he had made many years ago (he didn’t go into detail about what he had done).

During our stay in Kansas City, our father drove me, my brother, Edwin and my nephew Robert to visit our land in Dunklin County. Once we arrived at our farmland, we began taking pictures of the land and the church that belonged to our late grandparents, J.T. and Vashti Robinson.

Before we headed back home to California, while at the gas station as we said our goodbyes my dad hugged me and at that time I started crying because I had a gut feeling that I would not see my father anymore. He whispered in my ear, “You’re my gift. Fix what I have broken.” I didn’t know how bad things was until my father passed in June 2014.

When I got back from Kansas City, me and my brother Edwin spoke with the rest of our siblings (Robert Jr., Kim, Renell, Roxanne, Lugene, Kerry Wayne, and Uliria) about the mission our father discussed with us.

This is when my journey began

First, I went to my auntie to try and get some history from her about the farmland, and it was at that time I realized that whatever bad decision my father had made was taken out on his children.

I wanted to get my auntie’s blessing; unfortunately, my auntie refused to talk to me about the land. As I tried to interview family, all the doors were shut except one. I was given a contact number, which belonged to my cousin, Vashti, whom I met for the first time in 2015. I began explaining to my cousin what my goal was and several hours turned into days of communication.

For a brief moment, I found relief, because I had a connection with a family member who was going through a journey as well. Once my cousin, Vahsti, connected me with my uncle, Jehu (whom I hadn’t spoken to in decades), we began talking and catching up on lost time. I explained to my uncle Jehu about my journey to fix what my dad had broken and try to bring our family together. Afterwards, I asked him for his blessing. My uncle, Jehu, gave me his blessing and he said if I need him for anything, don’t hesitate to contact him.

It was a long journey, and now four years later, my mission is almost complete with the help of family…Especially, my mother (Lugene Sr), who is the backbone to our family, and who inspired me to never give up no matter what the situation is. Thank you mama! Last but not least, to my soulmate Floria (aka Juice) who did relentless research. Thank you! — Gerone Robinson

Dallas/Fort Worth cosmetologist Reneé Heard displaying her immeasurable gifts as a passionate hairstylist


HAVEN’T Y’ALL HEARD? 

SMILE OF VICTORY — A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Reneé Monique Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

DALLAS — Sometime during the 8 o’clock hour Monday morning, Reneé Monique Heard arrived at Paul Mitchell The School in nearby Arlington, Texas, an institution that’s widely known for preparing its students — or “future professionals,” as they call them — for successful careers in the beauty industry.

Exemplifying such intensity for what she’s been blessed to do on the regular, Heard found her way to campus, displaying her customary spirited disposition.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Although Heard’s decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

LEAST SHE FORGET — “I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

“I am 34 years of age and very passionate about my craft,” Heard says without hesitation.

As Heard explained, her passion for helping clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

REROUTING — Although Heard decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

“I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

Although her grandparents didn’t have the funds to pay for her to get the hairstyle she so desperately wanted, Heard did what any opportunistic youngster is supposed to do.

She began to think outside the box and devised her own way to make it happen.

To her credit, she’s been making it happen ever since, all the while finding her niche as a resourceful hairstylist in the process.


SKILLZ ON FLEEK 

BACK WHERE IT ALL STARTED — As Heard explained, her passion for helping her clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

“I took the few dollars I had and went to the hair store and got some hair, and that’s when my experimenting started,” said Heard, explaining how she had initially discovered her craft for braiding her. “I braided my own hair and I did really well.”

Much to her delight, it wasn’t long thereafter that Heard’s immeasurable hair-styling gifts had become the talk of the town.

“Then my aunt came (and then) I started doing my cousins’ hair and then others,” Heard said. “That’s where I learned and that’s when I knew that I was going to be in this profession. And then along the way my passion left.”

Amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

“Throughout life, no matter where I went, (my desire to do) hair always followed me,” Heard said. “I moved to Arizona, back home (to Kansas), and then Texas. I seemed to always run from it…avoiding my calling and ignoring what God had for me. I knew I was destined to do something else besides hair. I just knew it. No matter what road I took in trying to pursue something else, I would always run into this brick wall…and hard too.”

At some point doing her sometimes rocky journey, when Heard had finally elected to stop running from that which God called her to do, that is when her Creator began to enlarge her territory, thus catapult to her divine destiny for such a time as now.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

Never mind that while finding her way in this thing called life, she had to settle for working in a call center, during which she recalled having become “completely miserable and irritated with the fact that I have this amazing talent I’m working at it every now and then.”

Heard, in fact, sensed that something had to give.

Eventually.

And fast.

With no additional time to waste.


“I’m going to this 9-to-5 (job) every day and it just wasn’t cutting it. It was hard for me to get up every day at 6 a.m. to go to work and be there by 8 a.m. But it was so easy for me to get up on Saturday at 4:15 a.m. My first client was as early as 5 a.m., and I could do hair all day and make people feel good. I would be on my feet from sun up to sun down into the next morning with no problem.” — Reneé Monique Heard 


DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Because amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working at some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

How else to explain why she arrived to campus Monday morning, displaying her customary spirited countenance.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

She sure does.

Now we know why.

Carolina businessman William E. Sessions, Jr. conquers lengthy cocaine addiction, establishes credible nonprofit organization

 


50 SHADES OF FAVOR 

CLASS IN SESSION — A native of Washington, DC, William Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization. “BFF’s goal is to provide you with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

William E. Sessions, Jr. turned 50 years old on Friday.

Surely, he’s basking in the glory of a moment that only God arranged to transpire.

“I’m liking this 50 thing already. Happy Birthday to me,” Sessions wrote in a Facebook post just before midday EST on Friday. “God is so greatttttt!”

A spirited, enthused post that was accompanied by the hashtags, #It’sNotOver and #I’mHereBecauseofCalvary, amongst the reasons that Sessions is especially giddy about reaching the big 5-0 is due in large part to the fact that God continues to steer him to the divine destiny for which he was created.


MORE ON SESSIONS’ BFF, INC: https://www.facebook.com/BestFootForwardInc/

Consider, for instance, how Sessions, a Mount Olive, North Carolina-area businessman, has gone about providing an entirely unique twist to the acronym, BFF.

Although BFF is commonly referred to as one’s “Best Friend Forever,” Session has appropriately made this familiar acronym apart of his business venture.

A native of Washington, DC, Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization.

IN HIS ELEMENT — Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose.

Widely known as Best Foot Forward, Inc., Session’s BFF provide is designed to provide others with strategic, effective information that will great enhance and add value to their life, particularly through his efficient motivational speaking, life coach lessons, workshops and seminars, spiritual enlightenment, as well as through his involvement in community events — many of which are geared toward helping to empower, enrich, and strengthen the lives of others.

Powered by the slogan, “Speaking Words Of Life,” BFF’s goal is to provide clients with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

For Sessions, his rise to evolving and ultimately finding his niche as an accomplished Life Coach and Peer Support Specialist emerged amid a trying season in his life, he acknowledged.


“The competitive drive in life that propels me for this business comes from the determination and hard work that I faced at the end of a nearly 15-year (cocaine) addiction. (I’m) desiring to restructure and put meaning back into my life, but with little-to-no information on who I was, what I was created for, and what to do next, I began a fight that I now fight every day, the struggle to get and stay free from addiction.” — William Sessions of BFF, Inc. 


To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more that Sessions fought, the more he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

UNSHAKABLE FAITH — To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more than Sessions fought, the more that he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

Because, after all, God was the Ultimately BFF he so desperately needed, especially during what was a dark season in his life.

“I got back in school and I created a more intense relationship with God,” said Sessions, sounding very much like a man who’s back and better than ever. “I faced much verbal abuse, persecution, and some setbacks, but with coming in contact with the right people and acquiring proven techniques and the knowledge I scarcely gained along the way, I was able to go from a homeless cocaine addict who were counted out by many only to realize that God had another plan for my life.”

And you wonder why God has, quite frankly, been Session’s Ultimately BFF from the outset — even when this addict-turned-businessman had struggled mightily to find a sense of direction in this thing called life.

Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

“That’s what I want to do with BFF…to help others put their Best Foot Forward and to also know that with BFF, we will definitely become your Best Friend Forever,” Session said.

Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is now being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

On May, 11, for instance, Sessions and his team will host a community wide event known as, “Living To Be A Better Me.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

An event that will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. EST at Herman Park Center in nearby Goldsboro, North Carolina, professionals — particularly those who struggle with physical well-being, financial freedom, mental well-being, and spiritual enhancement — will be able to share and dine with each other, during which they will discuss how to become what Sessions calls, “a better me.”

“Everyone who wishes to thrive in 2019 needs to be present,” Sessions said.

GOD’S PLAN — Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.

Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose — this after having pressed and persevered through arguably the darkest season of his life.

“What I like about the vision and business that God has given me is that I’m able to see lives drastically changed, because someone cared, said Sessions, whose ventures accommodates people and groups of all ages and ethnicities. “It is the greatest feeling in the world to have others come back and tell you that they were moved or positively changed by the things you’ve spoken or assisted with in their lives.”

Because, after all, that’s what friends are for.

Best Friends Forever, that is.

Houston entrepreneur Kevin D. Walls is as good as advertised as a credible, flourishing financial planner

DALLAS — Just after midday on Sunday, Kevin D. Walls jumpstarted the final full week of July by posing a rather thought-provoking inquiry to his somewhat sizable gallery of social media followers.

Said Walls in a Facebook post that was accompanied by a pair of inspiring hashtags: “What fear will you let go of this week?”


WALLS OF SUSTAINED SUCCESS 

CARRYING OUT HIS VISION — Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience in is surely one ever-so-competitive industry, Houston businessman Kevin Walls’ primary objective through his venture is centered largely on training people on what he deems “smart financial principles,” as well as connecting what he respectfully labels the “average person” to his financial experts as a strategic way to aid them in managing their finances much like an expert “without having to become one,” he explained.

“Well, I don’t know if it was a competitive drive, because I am competitive,” Walls, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked how did his competitive drive in life propel him for his business venture. “I think it was more so my spirit of wanting to share my financial knowledge and experiences with others so they can know that they too can win financially.”

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to his immeasurable track record as a financial guru that has greatly enabled Walls, 51, to function mightily in his distinct element as a credible retired accountant, who assumes the notable role as a financial planner.


MORE ON HOUSTON ENTREPRENEUR KEVIN D. WALLS: www.KevinDWalls.com

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having been teaching financial principles for more than two decades, Walls has been active consistently in building networks for over 11 years.

Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience in what is surely one ever-so-competitive industry, Walls’ primary objective through his venture is centered largely on training people on what he deems “smart financial principles,” as well as connecting what he respectfully labels the “average person” to his financial experts as a strategic way to aid them in managing their finances much like an expert “without having to become one,” he explained.

In a nutshell, what it all boils down to, Walls emphasized, is strategically devising ways to help and inspire his clients to possess and savor a carefree life, courtesy of good money management.

UNIVERSAL IMPACT — A Houston-based company that has made some favorable strides since its inception, Walls business venture services mostly individuals ranging in ages 25 to 65. Interestingly, this Houston Willowridge High School Howard University alum has had the luxury of building networks in as many as 17 U. S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, Japan and Canada.

“I love being able to help make people’s lives be better, because I think it’s the irrefutable basics of business,” Walls said. “If you’re not doing that then, in my opinion, you’re not in business.”

S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, Japan and Canada.

Talk about having an international impact — this after, well, letting go of his fears way back when.


“If I could only share one thing with you about me, it would be that I believe in the value of relationships. I genuinely love people. I believe there is only one business on Planet Earth — making someone’s life better.” — Houston Businessman Kevin Walls 


That, after all, practically sums up why achieving customer services goals and objectives is extremely vital to Walls, who credits Jesus Christ, his wife, Esther, as well as a host of friends and loved ones — most notably Jim Rohn, Dexter Yager, John Cummuta, Les Brown, Brian House, Terrance Hawkins, Tim Sales, Jordan Goodman, and Robert Kiyosaki — as amongst those who have inspired him to go forth with his business-related dreams and ambitions.

“I am also very diligent about my commitment to deliver extraordinary results for those I choose to work with,” Walls said. “Spectacular and life-changing results are what I help people achieve. Anything short of that is unacceptable to me. I take this commitment and relationship very seriously. Because of this I will also expect a serious commitment from those I work with as well — in effort and investment.”


WE ARE FAMILY 

FAMILY-LIKE ATMOSPHERE — “I love being able to help make people’s lives be better, because I think it’s the irrefutable basics of business,” Walls said. “If you’re not doing that then, in my opinion, you’re not in business.”

Having been teaching financial principles for more than two decades, Walls has been actively consistent in building networks for over 11 years, he said.

In addition, he host a weekly financial webinar event that airs every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. CST at MakeWealthRealWebinar.com.

“I just feel like a person can succeed financially,” Walls said. “People just need to be aware and learn financial principles conceptionally and then be given affordable access to experts that execute their financial plan for them. People are lying to them and it’s costing them a fortune.


MAN ON A MISSION 

MAKING MUCH NOISE — A Houston-based company that has made some favorable strides since its inception, Walls business venture services mostly individuals ranging in ages 25 to 65.

“I know that’s a bold statement. I know that it’s not their fault that they are in the financial state they are in,” Walls continued. “They have cleverly been seduced by the Alliance of 4, using a process call AIDA. I feel it’s my fiduciary duty to not only bring awareness, but also an affordable solution.”

All the while greatly empowering people on the importance of letting go of fear.

This week and beyond.

Breast Cancer Survivor Establishes Global Presence Offering Transformational Health and Wealth Services


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS NEW YEAR 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


What better way to kick off the New Year than by establishing a plan to upgrade your health and financial status?

That’s what breast cancer survivor and Detroit-area businesswoman Nicole Pettiway has become most noted for doing — strategically helping busy professional men and women achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals.

“I believe all women and men deserve to have vibrant health and financial freedom,” Pettiway told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

CHANGING A GENERATION 

MAJOR MILESTONE — Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of more than two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers professional men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of over two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

The Health and Wealth Company is geared towards empowering men and women with the skills and support to achieve vibrant health as well as tools to make wise economic decisions through private or group coaching programs and workshops. These online or local programs use two strategic frameworks: 7 Keys to Vibrant Health and 6 Keys to 6+ Figures, with the mission to empower “health-conscious and financially focused men and women” to take control of their health and finances in order to achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals. Pettiway tailors her programs to fit the health or financial goals of her clients.

Pettiway’s journey to pursuing a business venture in the health and financial industries stemmed from overcoming adversities in her own journey.

“The blueprints I share with my clients are the same blueprints that I used on my own journey with overcoming breast cancer and getting on the road to financial freedom,” said Pettiway. “…by providing transformational health and wealth coaching programs that use the blueprints for vibrant health and financial freedom.”

Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.


APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

“I was raised to be the best at my craft and to be self-sufficient,” Pettiway said. “With those traits and my upbringing, I had no choice but to succeed.”

Pettiway’s fervent quest to raise the bar as a thriving businesswoman undoubtedly has benefited her greatly since first setting foot into the world of entrepreneurship.

“I have never been afraid to go against the norm when I believe in something wholeheartedly. I am certain this is why God started preparing me in 2016 for what has become my next assignment. Until 2016, I was on a forward trajectory to becoming a C-Level Executive in Corporate America with a stellar career, awards, and accolades behind me,” said Pettiway.


Pettiway ultimately discovered God’s altered plans to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

POISED FOR A TURNAROUND — Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.

“In 2016, I was introduced to personal finance in-depth, both as a consumer and an entrepreneur,” said Pettiway, recalling the time she joined myEcon, the Personal Financial Success Company.

“My position as an independent contractor with myEcon gave me my first exposure to entrepreneurship and I fell in love (with it).”

“I was personally mentored by multi-millionaires and personal finance experts,” Pettiway said.  “Being able to vastly improve my finances and help other families do the same became my new passion and pursuit.”

ON CENTER STAGE — For what it’s worth, even when adversity surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing her a way of escape.

“It was at this time when my career goals shifted from working in Corporate America and helping businesses thrive to helping improve the lives of families across America using what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy’,” said Pettiway.

For what it’s worth, even when adversity had surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing for her a way of escape.

“God wasn’t finished with me yet,” said Pettiway, recalling the challenges of 2017, during which she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “This became the biggest battle of my life. Through divine intervention, I was exposed to alternative and holistic medicine, and I made the decision to forego chemotherapy and radiation and use my body’s natural ability to heal.”

“This required substantial changes in my lifestyle – a total mind, body, and spirit makeover,” Pettiway continued. “I believe God knew that I would be up for the challenge, so I forged ahead and made massive changes in my life. I had surgery to remove the tumor, and I am blessed to proclaim as of August 2018 that I have no signs of cancer in my body.” Losing 82 pounds and getting back to her high school size was an added bonus of Pettiway’s breast cancer journey.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today Pettiway is basking in the glory of her entrepreneurial element with God, her Helper, leading the way. Nicole’s flourishing business and inspiring healing journey is fully supported by her loving husband Hermen, and their two adult children Kevin and Kirsten.

Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix early in her career, Pettiway took the leap later in her career to become a Certified Functional Health Coach through the Institute for Functional Health Coaches.

GOD’S PLAN — As Pettiway discovered, God altered her career-related plans only to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

As a long-time Portfolio Manager, she is also a certified Project Management Professional (or PMP) through the Project Management Institute and serves as a mentor for the We Build Character Leadership Program and for Detroit Cornerstone Schools.

“On my healing journey, I immersed myself in holistic medicine by reading books, articles, and journals, attending conferences, meeting with experts in the industry, and joining a number of holistic healing support groups,” said Pettiway, whose business venture accommodates health-conscious men and women.

“I started blogging about my journey to raise awareness that our bodies are magnificently designed and that we are capable of overcoming chronic illnesses through natural means.”

“God revealed my next assignment, which was to become the person I needed on my healing journey – a health coach,” Pettiway said. “I have a passion for both health and wellness and personal finance.”

It wasn’t long thereafter that The Health and Wealth Company was born.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Pettiway expresses her passion for helping others. “I love witnessing the transformation of my clients as they shift their mindset, unlearn the things that were hindering them, and propel forward on the road to vibrant health and financial freedom.”

“As a breast cancer survivor, I believe that people can overcome chronic illness and attain optimal health by learning the root causes and applying holistic and integrative solutions. As a person who was once drowning in debt and in bankruptcy, I believe that people can attain financial freedom by learning and applying what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy.’”
