Is Dallas entrepreneur Sakina G. Jackson the seasoning mix industry’s best kept secret?

OVERFLOW SEASON-ING 

SALT OF THE EARTH — The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Sakina G. Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s fielding orders all across the country.

DESOTO, Texas — Just recently, Sakina G. Jackson took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather spirited post to her timeline.

Don’t get twisted, mind you. She wasn’t merely bragging.
If nothing else, she was only enlightening the masses of the continuous buzz surrounding what is shaping up to be a globally-acclaimed invention for the ages.
Said Jackson before her hundreds of social media followers: “I’m just saying! Get you some Big Toe Seasonings.”
For what it’s worth, Jackson undoubtedly has earned the right to exemplify such passion for a product that figures to turn heads in countless of households and restaurants for years to come.
Never mind that she senses those avenues by which to start a company is very much like birthing a baby — to put it more appropriately.

“Growing up in a family of seven, five siblings and being a tomboy, winning in life has always been a goal,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “I started working in Corporate America in the 90’s as a legal services company (during) which there were many competitors. Learning to be my best in all areas of business was imperative.”

Speaking of being her best, Jackson’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she’s been nothing short of remarkable.

The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s routinely fielding orders all across the country.

Interestingly, she’s essentially gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in the tri-state areas that’s comprised of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

“I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said. “My products have traveled to more places than I have myself have (she continued while laughing).  I am hoping to catch up.”

FINISHED PRODUCT — Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Most recently, Jackson engaged in a rather festive and intriguing tour she famously dubbed as “FLAVAs,” during which she was afforded golden opportunities to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display.

As usual, she was as good as advertised, in large part because consumers have come to embrace — and savor — Jackson’s delectable, mouthwatering seasonings, especially her annual holiday season’s faithful three: Lemon Pepper, Creole, and the Big Toe’s ever-so-popular Bless Yo Heart seasoning, a traditionally historic southern catchphrase Jackson’s granddaughter is responsible for having named.

LOCKED AND LOADED — Interestingly, Jackson essentially has gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in establishments such as Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. “I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said.

A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained entrepreneurial success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough.

Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

Such an assignment had ultimately lasted some eight years which, to Jackson’s surprise, had given way to her being named Director of Municipal Court.


DID YOU KNOW…


“I do attribute this growth to a manager, who saw my leadership qualities, which quite frankly, stemmed from several years in corporate and my vast entrepreneurial skills,” Jackson said. “Becoming a mother heightened this desire as I wanted my children and grandchildren to know that if they educate themselves in whatever they set out to do in life, they too, can achieve success.  I now have moved into inspiring friends, women, veterans, youth to live their truth.”

FOR STARTERS — A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough. Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

So don’t get it twisted.

“In all honesty, I have come to know that how we treat and help one another is a direct correlation with our own joy and happiness,” Jackson said. “A soul that simply exists to please him or herself is usually in my experience a very sad individual…a void of inner joy.  Therefore, I live to inspire others of all ethnic groups, ages, and cultures. It is my truth.”

Bless her ‘lil heart.

Dallas/Fort Worth entrepreneur Shanna Boger setting herself apart as one of nation’s finest event planners


Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. (Psalm 37:4)


IN A LEAGUE OF HER OWN 

A CUT ABOVE THE REST — A Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman in her own right, Shanna Boger, 46, is owner and CEO of the PRP Luxury Group, a progressive and thriving event planning venture she established some five years ago.

DALLAS — For Shanna Boger, she was practically born into it.

“My parents were entrepreneurs,” Boger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said explaining the memorable developments surrounding her rise as an accomplished entrepreneur. “Both of them had side businesses, plus full-time jobs, so I always knew I would have a business…just didn’t know what type of business.”
It didn’t take her very long to figure that out.
That’s because Boger essentially wound up following in the massive footsteps of her beloved mother, whose entrepreneurship craft was that of a florist and wedding planner when her daughter was a child, growing up Bossier City, Louisiana.

BAYOU BEAUTY — A Fall 1994 graduate of Grambling State University with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Accounting, Boger’s PRP Luxury Group has been operations for five years and counting. The key to her reaping sustained success through an endeavor whose best and brightest days are well ahead it: going above and beyond to ensure that she exemplifies top-notch customer service.

A Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman in her own right, Boger, 46, is owner and CEO of the PRP Luxury Group, a progressive and thriving event planning venture she established some five years ago.

In essence, PRP Luxury Group is widely regarded as a boutique wedding and event company, one that specializes in full-service wedding planning, luxurious floral and event design, not to mention custom stationery and curated gifts.

“My parents were entrepreneurs,” Boger, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said explaining the memorable developments surrounding her rise as an accomplished entrepreneur. “Both of them had side businesses, plus full-time jobs, so I always knew I would have a business…just didn’t know what type of business.”

All things considered, Boger has her mother to thank, in large part because even as a youngster growing up in Louisiana, she was the beneficiary of some brilliant hands-on training, of sorts.

“She did all the weddings in our community and I hated it,” Boger jokingly said of her mother’s immeasurable impact as a local businesswoman. “So I decided to go to college and major in accounting and get a desk job.”

All things considered, Boger has her mother to thank, in large part because even as a youngster, growing up in Louisiana, she was the beneficiary of some hands-on training, of sorts.

As it turned out, that proverbial desk job was essentially short-lived, considering…well, Boger was practically birthed into the ever-so-competitive industry of entrepreneurship.

“I did that (desk job), but I reached a glass ceiling and the entrepreneur bug was a burning in my spirit and I could not shake it,” Boger recalled. “I have always been creative, so I took my creativity and decided to build my own business. And I came back to my roots: weddings and events.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today, unlike never before, Boger is functioning fervently in the divine purpose for which she was created, reinforcing among other things, that when parents train up children in the way they should go, when they mature in age, they will not depart from it.


“My mother, of course,” said Boger, when asked who were amongst those who inspired and pushed her to delve off into entrepreneurship. “(Also) Kae Whitaker of Kae Whiter Media Group, Preston Bailey, Kathy Romero, and Akeshi Akinseye of Kesh Events.”

Having had the luxury of hosting the bulk of her events in Texas, Boger boasts lofty aspirations of planning and designing events globally.

Given her immeasurable and remarkably compelling gifts as an event planner, such a notable milestone figures to come to fruition — much sooner than later.

A business that accommodates clients ranging mostly in ages of 25 to 44, Boger announced that plans are effectively underway to partner with the newly erected Lakeview Event & Conference Center in nearby Arlington, where she will engage in hosting an Open House event in October.


MOM KNOWS BEST

Today, unlike never before, Boger is functioning fervently in the divine purpose for which she was created, reinforcing among other things, that when parents train up children in the way they should go, when they mature in age, they will not depart from it.

“(I just want to) be an inspiration to people, to live life the fullest,” said Boger, explaining her mission that’s aligns with her customer service goals and objectives. “I want to be an inspiration to people, to show them that God will give you the desires of your heart, as long as you honor Him in everything you do.”

Not to mention obey His Voice, even if it comes through your mom.

Something to which this remarkably gifted Texas entrepreneur can greatly attest.

Is longtime Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Kristen J. Price the real estate industry’s best kept secret?


Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. (Philippians 4:6 KJV) 


DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Dallas, Kristen J. Price, 52, is owner and chief executive officer of Hylton Homes Realty, LLC.

DALLAS — Earlier this week, Texas businesswoman Kristen J. Price wasted little time offering a thorough assessment of her drive in her selected line of work.

She was only keeping it 100.
“Let’s face it,” Price explained during an interview with Making Headline News. “There’s an increasing number of individuals that have the same ethnic makeup and background as myself, who have the thought in their minds that they will never be able to own their own home. I’m here to let them know differently. If they have the desire, tenacity and dream to give it a try, I am here to make that dream a reality with my professional knowledge and guidance in the real estate industry.
“You too can own your own home,” Price continued. “Not just one, but two, three, or however many your heart desires.”

To grasp a thorough concept of why Price speaks with such passion and splendor when assessing the joy of functioning mightily in her element, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

Interestingly, with Price’s expertise and knowledge of the real estate industry, she will steadfastly work tirelessly on her clients’ behalf, all the while making their next home-buying or home-selling experience a pleasant and successful one.


“Therefore, whether you are considering selling a home, looking for a new build or an existing home or in the preliminary stages of a Dallas area real estate search, you have found the best in professional service,” said a spokesperson for Price’s Hylton Homes Realty.


A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A 1985 graduate of Dallas’ Wilmer-Hutchins High, Price holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Administration from the University of North Texas in nearby Denton. Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

Consequently, she advanced her education when she earned a Master of Science Degree in Human Relations and Business in 2000 from Amberton University in nearby Garland.

As for her immeasurable experience in the ever-so-competitive real estate industry, Price’s tenure spans some 15 years, five of which she served as a sales agent and 10 years as an independent broker.

She is scheduled to teach what is known as the Military Relocation Professional Class on July 17 at the MetroTex Association of Realtors.

Also, Price will conduct a live recording with other media analysts at her local church, Antioch Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church on July 8 at 6:00 p.m. CST.

Given the immense strides she made over the course of the past decade-and-a-half, it’s safe to say that even in the wake of her sustained success, Price’s best and brightest days as a real estate broker are well ahead of her.

This, to her credit, essentially means that Price hasn’t shown any signs of slowing down any time soon, considering she’s walking diligently in her divine purpose.


“Service is my personal mission,” Price said. “I love offering my professional service, expertise, and knowledge of real estate to the consumers. I work for and with my clients. Notice I said ‘for them’ first. I put all of my clients’ interests before my very own. It’s not about me, but all about them and assisting them with accomplishing that one goal of home ownership.”


When asked who were amongst those who inspired her to delve off into such a rewarding and commendable industry, Price deems it essential to customarily recall a somewhat intriguing memory.

“A realtor by the name of Candy Hudson — who represented my husband at the time — and me in the sale of our first home,” Price explained. “She stated to me one day after a meeting with us, ‘Kristen, have you ever thought about doing real estate?’ My response was, ‘No.’ She went on to say that, ‘I think that you would be good at it, because you are such a great communicator.’”


GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

To grasp a thorough concept of why Price speaks with such passion and splendor when assessing the joy of functioning mightily in her element, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

And the rest, as they say, was history, particularly with regards to Price appropriately heeding the wise counsel of Hudson.

“There was not much thought given to the conversation until after we had moved into our new home in Mesquite, Texas,” Price said. “The rest is history.”

Here she is today, not only steadily setting herself apart as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers but, much to her delight, she routinely goes to great lengths to ensure that her clients’ dreams become realities in the process.

All because, well, she was determined to the trust process of what it takes to become a fixture in one America’s most popular and competitive industries.


DS-TEXAS’ OWN

“Winston Churchill stated that, ‘Success is the ability to go from one failure to another, with no loss of enthusiasm,’ said Price before backing up such an analogy with the familiar Biblical verse that is Philippians 4:6. “Be careful for nothing; but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known unto God.”

All things considered, coupled with the divine calling on her life, that’s just what Price has done — made her requests known unto God.

And left the results to Him.

Look at her today, having emerged as one of Texas’ most resourceful and efficient real estate brokers.

Winners BBQ has been nothing short of remarkable since its 2015 Dallas/Fort Worth inception


“The highest human act is to inspire.”Late superstar rapper Nipsey Hussle


WINNER’S CIRCLE 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A former Iowa State football standout, DeAndre Jackson had ultimately delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship as the proud founder of Winners BBQ, a family-owned restaurant that has established three franchises since its inception in 2015.

DUNCANVILLE, Texas — If there’s one thing that DeAndre Jackson has learned as a former athlete, it’s how to make good on a seemingly unfavorable situation.

Consider, for instance, how when Jackson’s bid to land on an NFL roster spot fell short amid a career-ending ACL injury, he diligently had become resourceful in that he miraculously found his niche, both as an athletic trainer and real estate agent.
Much to his delight, things for the Garland, Texas native would only get better.

https://m.facebook.com/winnersbbqaustin/

THEY ARE LIT — Winners BBQ, in fact, has become a fixture throughout North Texas, in large part because consumers have come to enjoy — and embrace — its delectable meat plates, meat by the pound, its assortment of sandwiches, not to mention its smoked turkey legs, as well as its distinctly unique meat loaded potato that’s famously deemed “The G.O.AT.”

Winners BBQ’s original location is housed at 3200 14th Street in nearby Plano. A popular Dallas/Fort Worth restaurant that Jackson owns along with his cousin, Tevin Jackson, Tevin’s wife, former University of Texas and professional track and field star Nichole Denby-Jackson, Winners BBQ has since added two locations — one in Cedar Hill and in Austin.

Following what the Jacksons described as “massive success” of the Plano location, DeAndre opened Winners BBQ Cedar Hill in 2017, and in less than three months ago, Nichole, Tevin, and Nichole’s sister, Nichale,  opened the Austin location. 

For DeAndre Jackson and Co., it’s been all good ever since.


RED ZONE EFFICIENCY 

To their credit, the Jacksons have gone to great lengths to form what has become an All-Star lineup of Winners BBQ CEOs.

“We pride ourselves on bringing flavorful craft BBQ with having a one-of-a-kind menu and delivering exceptional customer service,” Nichole Denby-Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

And then there are Winners BBQ’s mouth-watering sides and its kids menu, not to mention its sweet and tangy BBQ sauce and its flavor-packed dry rub, which takes all of its smoked meats to “another level of flavor,” DeAndre Jackson acknowledged.

Interestingly, Winners BBQ has earned mentions in a slew of food publications, trends that have given way to this star-studded restaurant chain having garnered a host of food awards and magazine honors.


“As high profile collegiate and professional athletes, we are highly competitive by nature and this competitiveness and drive spill over into every faucet of our lives,” DeAndre Jackson explained. “Sports is what we all have in common, and the discipline, dedication, perseverance, mental toughness, sacrifice, motivation, and determination that athletics have instilled in us has taught us very valuable life lessons and how to never quit, no matter what curve balls life throw your way.”


To their credit, the Jacksons have gone to great lengths to form what has become an All-Star lineup of Winners BBQ CEOs.

Surely, their competitive drive as former athletes has contributed mightily to their sustained entrepreneurship success.

For starters, DeAndre and Tevin Jackson, both were legitimate hopeful to land NFL contracts before injuries reduced their effectiveness, thus bringing their careers to unceremoniously ends.

ON A MISSION — As for the Jacksons’ mission for having delved off into entrepreneurship, what it all boils down, they said, is devising ways to leave a legacy for their children — and their children’s children.

Both, in fact, had sustained torn ACL’s, and were forced to tackle — and sack — what they label as the “real world” for the first time in a long time.

And then there was Nichole, a Los Angeles native, who was the catalyst of Texas’ track and field program that captured a national championship before she enjoyed a professional stint with Nike and Adidas that spanned a decade.

Interestingly, Nichole maintained a top-10 world ranking and represented the U. S. on its World Championship Team, as well as served as an alternate on the U. S. Olympic team.

As for the Jacksons’ mission for having delved off into entrepreneurship, what it all boils down, they said, is devising ways to leave a legacy for their children — and their children’s children.

“My personal mission is to be able to pass down something for my children to own and start them off at an even better place in life than I was,” Nichole said. “I would also love to use my platform to motivate and inspire others, whether that be on speaking panels, through a published book, public appearances, and various events or seminars.

“Another mission is to have enough financial freedom for me to give back to many communities through charitable acts of kindness and build water wells in certain parts of Africa for those without clean water,” Nichole added. “We are all big on philanthropy and are big advocates for our community.”

DeAndre and Tevin Jackon both were legitimate hopeful to land NFL contracts before injuries reduced their effectiveness, thus bringing their careers to unceremoniously end. Both, in fact, sustained torn ACL’s, and were both forced to tackle — and sack — the real world for the first time in a long time.

In addition, the Jacksons announced strategic plans to create what they call the “WINspiration Foundation,” an organization that would allow them to display their notable philanthropy efforts.

“Something that I learned from the late great Nipsey Hussle is that the highest human act is to inspire,” Nichole said. “If I can use my platform to reach at least one person — I would love to inspire many — I would be happy.”

Said DeAndre Jackson: “It is important to pass down knowledge and wisdom to better those around you and make them want to become the best versions of themselves and to be able to pass down and instill these things in the next generation which will pick up the baton as it will be their turn to run the world.”

Just as the Jacksons are presently doing as successful entrepreneurs — this after having made good on seemingly unfavorable situations.

Talk about true Winners.

Texas ‘Living Legend’ Bishop John Lewis Johnson to be honored for 60 years as Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive COGIC


Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord. (1 Corinthians 15:58 NIV)


60 SHADES OF GRACE 

FORT WORTH, Texas — Bishop John Lewis Johnson.

Clearly, such a name ought to ring a bell, should have by now undoubtedly become a fixture throughout the historic Church of God In Christ, a religious-based organization that is widely regarded as the largest Pentecostal church and the fifth largest Christian church in the country.
To grasp a thorough concept of why Bishop Johnson should have garnered a well-respected, unprecedented presence in the national church at this stage in his ministerial tenure, look no further than his immeasurable, well-publicized track record as one of Texas’ oldest clergymen, who is the Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive Church of God In Christ in Fort Worth.
To his distinctly unique credit, Bishop Johnson’s pastoral career is nearing an unprecedented six decades, an awe-inspiring, unfathomable feat that will be commemorated during his 60th Pastoral celebration on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. CST at Dayspring Family Church, located at 618 North Belt Lane Road in nearby Irving.

TO GOD BE THE GLORY — To his distinctly unique credit, Bishop John Lewis Johnson’s pastoral career is nearing an unprecedented six decades, an awe-inspiring, unfathomable feat that will be commemorated during his 60th Pastoral celebration on Friday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. CST at Dayspring Family Church, located at 618 North Belt Lane Road in nearby Irving.

A gallery that will be comprised of his membership, colleagues, family members, and a host of well-wishers will collectively engage in a celebratory praise and worship service, during which they will pay homage to 93-year-old Bishop Johnson, who has been the face of Greater Progressive COGIC dating back to May 23, 1959.

The service will be highlighted by a featured speaker, Superintendent Melton R. Timmons, the Senior Pastor of Jones Valley Community COGIC in Tyler, Texas.

Timmons serves as Secretary for COGIC’s National Board of Trustees.


THE CHURCH’S HIGHEST OFFICE 

All things considered, Bishop Johnson has surely earned the right to be celebrated for his exceptional body of work as one of God’s beloved spokesperson, one who has evolved as a beacon of light in his own right, particularly in the national church.

Having sold out completely to God on February 15, 1949 at the tender age of 23, it was within the walls of the very historic church he pastors that he surrendered his life to Christ.

A little more than a year later — April 26, 1950, to be technical — Bishop Johnson had graciously accepted his divine calling to preach the Gospel.

To his credit, he’s been on God’s battlefield ever since, considering his ministerial resume includes having served under the leadership of the late Elder D.C. Littlefield, during which he was the Greater Progressive COGIC’s Assistant Pastor for just shy of a decade.

Interestingly, Bishop Johnson was officially ordained as an Elder in 1959, a milestone that had ultimately given way to his ceremoniously appointment by the late Bishop F. L. Haynes as Senior Pastor of Greater Progressive on May 23, 1959 (he was installed by the late Bishop D. L. Smith).


Following a notable presence in the Texas Northeast First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction — a stint that included having assumed roles as trustee and chairman of the Board of Superintendents, as well as a Program Planning Committee member — Bishop Johnson was promoted to Administrative Assistant to the Office of the Bishop on December 29, 1992. Consequently, he was consecrated as an Auxiliary Bishop by Presiding Bishop Charles Edward Blake Sr. during COGIC’s 109th National Holy Convocation on November 13, 2016.


Years before assuming his heavenly promotion to the highest office in the church, Bishop Johnson was the beneficiary of an honorary doctorate by Dallas’ Paul Quinn College on October 17, 1990.

Three years later, he was recognized by a host of delegates in the Fort Worth Community when he was deemed a “Living Legend.”

Bishop Johnson is the former husband to the late Mother Alma Katherine Johnson, a union that lasted 65 years before her demise.

Labeled a “gospel giant” by his peers and colleagues, Bishop Johnson’s unparalleled preaching tenure spans nearly seven decades, a stint that’s also accompanied by 49 years as a District Superintendent and 44 years as a Jurisdictional Administrative Assistant.


WELL DONE 

MASSIVE TRACK RECORD — All things considered, Bishop Johnson has undoubtedly earned the right to be celebrated for his exceptional body of work as one God’s beloved spokesperson, one who has evolved as a beacon of light in his own right, particularly in the national church.

A pastoral career that will reach 60 years as of May 23, Bishop Johnson currently serves as a Senior Advisor to Texas Northeast First Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Prelate, Bishop J.E. Hornsby.

Clearly, such a name ought to ring a bell, should have undoubtedly become a fixture throughout the historic Church of God In Christ.

For 60 years…and counting.

Dallas entrepreneur JerTerria Dawson’s VySion Events comes full circle, just as her late mother said


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


VYSION UNFOLDING 

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Dallas/Fort Worth-area Businesswoman JerTerria Dawson is owner and chief executive officer of VySion Events. Located at 360 E. Beltline Road in the heart of Desoto, Texas. VySion (pronounced Vision) is a 6,000 square feet venue that is suitable for hosting an array of events

DESOTO, Texas — As a longtime Texas entrepreneur, amongst JerTerria Dawson’s strategic objectives is striving to view virtually every business-related transaction from a broader perspective — to steadfastly devise ways to demonstrate a team-oriented concept, if you will.

“I honestly believe that everyone can win if we work together,” Dawson, 37, told Making Headline News this week. “There is enough business and clients in DFW that everyone can be successful. With that being said, I believe in assisting others and referring my potential clients to other venues if I am booked and other business owners have done the same.”

SEE THE VYSION : https://www.vysionevents.com/

It is due in large part to Dawson’s passion for displaying a heart for people that has contributed mightily to her sustaining entrepreneurship success as owner and chief executive officer of VySion Events.

Located at 360 East Beltline Road in the heart of Desoto, Texas, VySion (pronounced Vision) is a 6,000 square feet venue that is suitable for hosting an array of events, most notably (but not limited to:

  • Weddings and Receptions

  • Parties

  • Celebrations

  • Social Dances

  • Quinceaneras

  • Baby Showers

  • Video Shoots

  • Photo Shoots

  • ​Repass (Funeral Reception)

  • Sweet 16

  • Banquets

  • Reunions

  • Graduations

  • Corporate Events

  • Fashion Shows and,

  • Art Galleries

CATCH THE VYSION 

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — Because this venue has emerged as one of the finest of its kind, particularly in North Texas, Dawson is convinced that her latest endeavor’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

In essence, this spaciously luxurious establishment is widely deemed a fixture throughout Dallas/Fort Worth’s Metroplex, in large part because its staff specializes in providing elegant social and corporate events to residents throughout the area.

“One major difference between VySion Events and other event facilities is that we not only provide our clients with a rental facility for their events, but we provide exceptional customer service while offering decor, linens, and vendor packages,” Dawson, a native of Dallas,  said.

Having credited her mother for fueling her desire to delve off into entrepreneurship, Dawson’s quest to owning an event venue essentially commenced during her undergraduate days.

A business that is nearly its first full of year of existence, Dawson and her staff are overwhelmingly appreciative of the instant — and continuous — success  VySion Events has enjoyed since its inception.

Most importantly, because this venue has emerged as one of the finest of its kind, particularly in North Texas, Dawson is convinced that her latest endeavor’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“I like how my staff and I make my clients feel from start to finish,” Dawson said. “I believe in delivering exceptional service to my clients and that is what we strive to do with each event. We just love making each event a memorable one.”

Interestingly, when it comes to going above and beyond to ensure that each event is indeed an unforgettable one, there is virtually no limit on ages of individuals and groups to whom Dawson and Co. cater.

In other words, when pitching a call to VySion Events, rest assured that Dawson and staff will accommodate your every need and will provide the kind of service that undoubtedly will be nothing short of remarkable.

For Dawson, it wasn’t until after she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications (with a minor in Film Studies) from the University of Houston that she began to become more diligent in the purpose for which she was created.

“We do not have a particular age group that we cater to,” Dawson emphasized. “Our youngest client has been one years old and our most seasoned client has been 70 years young. We welcome and cater to all age groups.”

Having credited her mother for fueling her fervent desire to delve off into entrepreneurship, Dawson’s quest to owning an event venue essentially commenced during her undergraduate days.

“While in college I would help people and different organizations plan events,” Dawson said. “However, the love for planning and having nice events grew when I became a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.”

For Dawson, it wasn’t until after she earned a Bachelor of Arts in Communications (with a minor in Film Studies) from the University of Houston that she began to become more diligent in the purpose for which she was created.

Much to her delight, that is when the concept that is entrepreneurship had become more and more inevitable.

“After graduation I knew that I wanted to have my own event venue,” said Dawson, who also holds a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from University of Phoenix. “I would often talk to my mom about my desire to pursue this business venture.”

MOM CALLED IT — Interestingly, it wasn’t until after the sudden passing of Dawson’s mother on May 7, 2016 that such a prophesy had come full circle.

Without question, mom knew best, as Dawson had ultimately found out for probably the umpteenth time.

“She would always say, ‘You are going to open up your own event facility, just wait and see,’” Dawson recalled. “I always believed in my mom’s words, but fear, procrastination, doubt, and the No. 1 deterrent of not having money got in the way.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“We talked for about an hour and she imparted all of her knowledge about the business and, because of her and my mom pushing and guiding me, that is how VySion Events is her today.”

Talk about writing the VySion down and making it plain only to run with it.

 


In a related development:

 

Dawson announced that VySion Events will be hosting its inaugural Entrepreneur Pop-Up Shop/Back To School Bash on August 3 from 2 to 7 p.m., an event during which vendors and attendees will be able to donate school supplies.

There is a $100 vendor fee and the deadline to lock in an allotted space is May 24, Dawson said.

Dallas author Terri Coleman’s new book savoring instant success with ‘bestseller’ reviews since its May 11 release


But remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms His covenant, which He swore to your ancestors, as it is today. (Deuteronomy 8:18 NIV)


SEVEN-UPGRADE

SMILE OF VICTORY — Dallas/Fort Worth author Terri Coleman is the mastermind behind the recently-released book entitled, “7 Days: Reboot Your THOUGHTS Unlock Your Wealth,” an informatively intriguing book that has been nothing short of remarkable since its May 11 debut.

DALLAS —  Terri Coleman’s newly-produced book hasn’t even been out for a good, full month.

Still, she’s got to be thoroughly impressed with the slew of favorable results her brilliant written work has already garnered.
“I have really had this book in my spirit for a few years and, as of late last year, I had decided it was time to birth the book,” Coleman told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.
The book to which Coleman is alluding is her recently-released project entitled, “7 Days: Reboot Your THOUGHTS Unlock Your Wealth,” an informatively intriguing project that has been nothing short of remarkable since its May 11 debut.

BUY TERRI’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.in/DAYS-Reboot-THOUGHTS-Unlock-Wealth-ebook/dp/B07R7DQNJ5

A book that is comprised of 53 pages in length, Coleman began assembling “7 Days: Reboot Your THOUGHTS Unlock Your Wealth” sometime last fall and, much to her delight, this project is already exceeding her expectations.

A book that is comprised of 53 pages in length, Coleman began assembling “7 Days: Reboot Your THOUGHTS Unlock Your Wealth” sometime last fall and, much to her delight, this project is already exceeding her expectations.

That’s because according to this Dallas/Fort Worth-area author, she was informed that a few financial experts that her book has quickly emerged as a No. 1 bestseller for two consecutive days this month, a trend this Atlanta native hopes is a sign of things to come, much sooner than later.

EMBRACING CHANGE — Once this longtime mortgage industry professional elected to implement the essential changes that would greatly enable her to reap financial freedom, she had ultimately reaped the favorable results she had so desperately sought.

“I started writing the book at the beginning of fall last year and I instantly had a concept on what I wanted the cover to look like and the title of the book to represent,” Coleman said. “I knew that it was to cover seven days in this first installment and that the No. 7 had to be very large in size on the cover.”

So what’s so special about the No. 7?

“Well glad you asked,” Coleman said without hesitation. “It’s a super spiritual number and it represents wholeness, completion, and perfection. It’s the coming together of all things spiritual and physical in nature. So when I say, ‘7 Days To Reboot Your Thoughts To Unlock Your Wealth,’ it’s saying that you can forget about your past, because you are being rebooted for a new purpose toward a better trajectory in your life to wealth.”

ACCORDING TO GOD’S LAW…

Wait a minute. Because as far as Coleman is concerned, there’s more to this spiritual analogy involving God’s perfect number.


“It’s saying that once you reboot your thoughts, you can unlock your wealth, because doubt, fear, and insecurities have all been removed,” said Coleman, offering a more detailed breakdown of her book, as only she could. “You see, these are the things that block us or delay us from receiving wealth and happiness. We are entangled in a world of what someone has said about you and how they perceive you instead of speaking over yourself and declaring what you can and should and will be in this life. So yes, the meat of the book is so, so very powerful and, quite frankly, we need it to detox our mindset to get to our wealthy place.”


ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — As this Texas businesswoman appropriately acknowledges, the assortment strategic topics displayed in her new book will, in turn, bless others mightily.

Interestingly, given Coleman’s efficient and thorough synopsis of her book, many financial experts would suggest that this author has risen as an assortment of pivotal economic issues that, truth be told, from which many in the modern-day church often shy away.

“I realized that there was a void in discussing building wealth and how it relates to the way we operate in our daily lives,” Coleman said. “More and more, I began to have things happen in my life after going through some devastating financial hardships. It brought me to the understanding that I had two choices: Get up and keep moving or give up.”

INSTANT SUCCESS — Coleman’s newly-produced book hasn’t even been out for a good, full month. Still, she’s got to be thoroughly impressed with the slew of favorable results her written work has already garnered.

Once this longtime mortgage industry professional elected to implement the essential changes that would greatly enable her to reap financial freedom, she had ultimately reaped the favorable results she had so desperately sought.

“Well, giving up was not and has never been a part of my DNA,” Coleman said. “So I pushed forward, because I knew this message would greatly bless others.”

And, as this Texas businesswoman appropriately acknowledges, the assortment of strategic topics displayed in her new book will, in turn, bless others mightily.

CLIMBING THE LADDER — According to this Dallas/Fort Worth-area author, she was informed that a few financial experts that her book has quickly emerged as a No. 1 bestseller for two consecutive days this month, a trend this Atlanta native hopes is a sign of things to come, much sooner than later.

“The first message is to realize that your words have power and, if you take a moment to look back over your life, you will see the evidence of things you said manifest — good and bad,” said Coleman, when asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her book.

“The second point that I want my viewers to know is that you can change your life, your trajectory to wealth and happiness, and freedom just by rebooting the thought pattern you have and elevating what I call mindset behaviors.”

Spoken like a true business professional, one who’s having an immediate impact, given the immeasurable feedback her recently-released book has amassed.

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


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


GOD’S FAITH STEPPER 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle delighted Virginia is back in the Final Four for the first time in 35 years

THEY’RE BACK 

LONG TIME COMING — After a 35-year drought, the Virginia men’s basketball program is back in the Final Four. The champions out of the South Region, the top-seeded Cavaliers (33-3) will face Midwest Region champion, fifth-seeded Auburn (30-9), Saturday at 5:09 p.m. CST from U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis. (Getty Image Photo)

DALLAS — The Virginia men’s basketball program is back in the Final Four for the first time in 35 years.

Amongst the UVA alums who seems the proudest is Dallas Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle.

Prior to Friday night’s game versus the Memphis Grizzlies in the American Airlines Center, Carlisle spoke of how delighted he is to witness Virginia atone for last year’s NCAA Tournament’s first-round exit by reaching the national semifinals.
The champions out of the South Region, the top-seeded Cavaliers (33-3) will face Midwest Region champion, fifth-seeded Auburn (30-9), Saturday at 5:09 p.m. CST from U. S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.

The second national semifinal matchup will pit No. 3 seed Texas Tech (30-6), the West Region champion, squaring off against East Region champion, No. 2 seed Michigan State (32-6).

For UVA, which became the first ever No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 16 seed when it was dealt a 74–54 drubbing by the University of Maryland-Baltimore County in last year’s opening round of the Big Dance, Carlisle applauded Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett for a job well done with a program that is making its third Final Four appearance in school history (1981, 1984, 2019). 

IN RETROSPECT 

THE LAST TIME — Carlisle (left) was a member of Virginia’s 1984 Final Four squad that lost in the national semifinals to Akeem Olajuwon and No. 2 seed Houston, 49-47, in overtime.

“They’ve been consistently great all year,” Carlisle said of the Cavaliers, winners of four straight and 13 of their last 14. “I think they’ve only lost two or three games by two or three points. They have a real resolve as a team.”

In reaching the Final Four for the first time since 1984, Virginia demonstrated some much-needed resolve in the waning moments of the South Region final against third-seeded Purdue.

The Cavaliers, in fact, needed a rather awkward buzzer-beater by junior swingman Mamadi Diakite just as time expired to tie the game at 70 and force overtime, then outscored the Boilermakers, 10-5, in the extra session to preserve the win, thus erasing the memory of last year’s opening-round heartbreaker to UMBC.

According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, Virginia has a 79.9 percent chance of defeating Auburn, which is making its first Final Four appearance in school history.

Michigan State, meanwhile, has a 61.1 percent chance to upend Texas Tech, according to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor.

As for who Carlisle’s predicting to win the first of two national semifinal games, well, that essentially goes without saying.

PRAYER ANSWERED — The Cavaliers needed a buzzer-beater by junior swingman Mamadi Diakite just as time expired to tie the game at 70 and force overtime, then outscored the Boilermakers, 10-5, in the extra session to preserve the win, erasing the memory of last year’s opening-round heartbreaker to UMBC. According to ESPN’s Matchup Predictor, UVA has a 79.9 percent chance of defeating Auburn, which is making its first Final Four appearance in school history.

“They have a style that you need into today’s game,” said Carlisle, who was a member of Virginia’s 1984 Final Four squad that lost in the national semifinals to No. 2 seed Houston, 49-47, in overtime. “They preach defense first thing and they really understand how to play with each other. You know, the way they won the Purdue game last week was really special.”

Now that they’ve atoned for last year’s postseason disappointment, can the grit and grind Cavaliers manage two more wins to capture the school’s first ever national title?

“They’ve got a real chance now,” Carlisle said.

With a slight grin.

That, much to his delight and to the satisfaction of the rest of the UVA faithful, is a far cry from last year’s disastrous turn of events in the Big Dance.
