“Since I was good building businesses, this is how it has become my specialty,” Addington said. “Helping people build businesses, finding ways to save money in their businesses, finding where they were losing money, and even helping save a few businesses from closing its doors. I’ve spent over 3,075 hours of studying coaching and business building. I’ve helped over 105 businesses get started.”


And here’s what’s even more astounding: Addington is believed to be the first African-American woman to open a Life Coaching School in a Tri-State area that’s comprised of Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas. Also, I Can’t Coaching Life Coaching School is the only institution of its kind in the Tr-State area.

Houston businesswoman Toronda Lewis Copeland has become a constant fixture in the financial services industry


As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. (Proverbs 27:17 NIV)


THE PROVERBS 31 AFFECT

HOLDING IT DOWN — Armed with more than three decades of experience in her selected industry, Houston businesswoman Toronda Copeland’s The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting is a Christian-based company that’s based largely on the Biblical premise that’s housed in Proverbs 27:17.

DALLAS — If you ever find yourself conversing with Toronda Lewis Copeland long enough, chances are the notable subject pertaining to the Biblical fellowship known as “iron sharpens iron” will likely come up.

And for all the right reasons.
“I love working with people and helping them make their situation better,” Copeland, an accomplished Houston-area entrepreneur, told Making Headline News this week. “I also love numbers. Serving as a business in the financial services industry continues to allow me to satisfy both passions.”
To her credit, Copeland — a remarkably brilliant financial specialist in her own right — has become a constant fixture throughout the Houston metropolitan area as owner and chief executive officer of The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting.
Armed with more than three decades of experience in her selected industry, Copeland’s The Iron Network Tax and Business Consulting is a Christian-based company that’s based largely on the Biblical premise that’s housed in Proverbs 27:17.

“I have a passion for helping people and I have a passion for business…period,” Copeland, 50, said in a detailed introduction of her venture at https://www.theironnetwork.com/about-us/. “Our team of tax professionals has over twenty years combined experience.  Additionally, we have served in the financial services industry for even longer. We are equipped to handle your business needs.”

As Copeland emphasized, her vision for The Iron Network includes — but isn’t limited to — assisting entrepreneurs in developing their visions into thriving businesses, a trend that would ultimately aid entrepreneurs mightily in moving ever-so-closely toward what she describes as self-actualization.


A NOTABLE REMINDER…

Such a development, in turn, could greatly give way to these business professionals impacting their respective community, Copeland said.

What it practically boils down to, Copeland acknowledged, is strategically executing her personal mission, which is centered largely on promoting financial literacy, particularly by educating women and youth.

“Additionally, I have a mission to build a network of women business owners that connect to support and build up one another in various areas based on the biblical premise found in Proverbs 27:17,” said Copeland, adding that her networking adventure is presently in the works and will launch at a time that has yet to be determined.

A native of Nashville, Copeland grew up in nearby Franklin, a rural establishment that’s roughly 20 miles south of Tennessee’s state capital.


MORE ON COPELAND’S ENDEAVOR: https://www.theironnetwork.com/

A graduate of Whites Creek Comprehensive High School, Copeland advanced her education when she enrolled at University of Phoenix, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management.

For what it’s worth, she certainly boasts the educational and professional credentials which, much to her delight, have allowed her to reap sustained success in her chosen industry.

An endeavor that is steadily generating more a national presence — most notably in Tennessee, Texas, Ohio, Alabama and Illinois — Copeland stressed that as it relates to working with businesses, her primary focus remains in large part on the small business per se, and that age is not a factor.


“When it comes to my life insurance clients, I have a passion for helping young families solidify their financial foundation at a time when the cost to do so is a whole lot less than if they choose to wait until later on life,” Copeland explained. “At the same time, I find great pleasure in assisting clients of all ages to minimize their tax liability and to maximize their tax refunds.”


Speaking of the term, “maximize,” credit Copeland’s parents for having instilled in her at a young  age the benefits of delving the mindset of an entrepreneur, thus maximizing her potential.

“My mother definitely encouraged me to follow my dreams and made me believe that I could do anything and be whatever I wanted to be in life,” Copeland said. “My dad was an entrepreneur and business owner and also instilled work ethic in me. “My dad has always worked for himself. His work ethic was instilled in me. I’ve always had an interest in business.”

So far, so good for this thriving and progressive Texas-based businesswoman, whose best and brightest days undoubtedly are well ahead of her.

Yep. That goes to show that only what you do for Christ will last.

HERE’S THE 411 — What it practically boils down to, Copeland, acknowledged, is strategically executing her personal mission, which is centered largely on promoting financial literacy, particularly by educating women and youth.

“I love sharing the knowledge that I have,” said Copeland, who became knowledgeable of the tax industry in the late eighties, then formed featured business two years ago, a venture that has since allowed her to engage in bookkeeping, tax resolution, and credit repair.

Interestingly, Copeland earned her insurance license in 2009.

As for her itinerary, she’s currently working on an event in Nashville during which she will bring a broader awareness about financial literacy, as well as the importance of credit.

Also, she announced that plans are currently in the works to hold an event in Houston with two other agencies during which the focus will be geared toward women in what she deems four vital areas: spirituality, self-awareness, business, and finances.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A graduate of Whites Creek Comprehensive High School, Copeland advanced her education when she enrolled at University of Phoenix, where she earned a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Management.

In addition, Copeland will appear on a Dallas/Fort Worth-area radio show for a scheduled interview sometime in late October.

“I believe it is important to transfer knowledge, help others grow, and create a legacy for future generations,” Copeland said.

Sounding very much like the remarkably brilliant financial mastermind for whom she is widely known.

Arkansas author ‘Nahnee’ recalls disastrous season of her young life in her book, ‘Convicted At 16’


Allah does not burden a soul beyond that it can bear (Qur’an 02:286)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES — On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Author Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course. Nahnee is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Convicted At 16.”

DALLAS — For the rising author known as “Nahnee,” such a memorable vision emerged during what undoubtedly was the darkest season of her young life.

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.
The vision to which Nahnee is alluding is the one that fueled her desire to compose the book entitled, “Convicted At 16,” her newly-produced written work that came full circle during her unlikely incarceration as a minor.
On the brink of being tried as an adult, considering one of close acquaintances had died as a result of being gunned down, it was, in fact, a rather tumultuous season during which it seemed that life as Nahnee knew it was all but nearing a dead end — figuratively, of course.
“While I was incarcerated, I cried every day about how I would someday write a book to tell my story, because people painted the picture of me as a murderer,” Nahnee, a Little Rock, Arkansas resident, explained. “On the side of that, my 14-year-old brother was involved as well, and I felt like if it wasn’t for me, he would of been able to live his life free.”

BUY NAHNEE’S BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07Y1ZSVCT/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_i_4mqIDbR719HYN

A book that is comprised of 186 pages in length (the eBook is 86 pages), Nahnee’s “Convicted At 16” is centered largely on one decision which, according to this gifted writer, has not only taken the life of her close friend, but could very well take away everything that matters to her, as mentioned in a detailed introduction of this book at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/48163918-convicted-at-16.

“With a charge of capital murder hanging over her head, 15-year-old Nahnee is forced to take on an adult role as she battles for her freedom,” said a spokesperson for “Convicted At 16.”

As Nahnee explained to MHN, there was no doubt that her life at the tender age of 15 had “took a turn,” she said.

A turn for the worst, to put it more specifically.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this now 27-year-old author, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape.

“Five years…five months and nine days locked up,” said Nahnee, a Long Beach, California native, recalling how long she was confined between the dreaded walls of a jail cell. “Now I can say I’ve overcame many struggles being incarcerated at 15.”

Interestingly, Nahnee’s book also depicts a development during which she was involved with a man whom, according to this author, controlling, was abusive and manipulative.

Not to mention up to no good.

“He led me to set up robberies on people whom I was good friends of people I knew,” Nahnee recalled. “My book talks about one robbery that almost took place but didn’t, because my brother came home early from work. It also mentions a robbery that did happened an how the guy I was dating made me make the call and give orders to my friend on where to come.”

As Nahnee vividly explained, she had no choice but to do what she was told out of fear that something unfavorable would happen to her.

“There was no way out…and hadn’t been for three years of our relationship,” she told MHN. “I went through peer pressure, neglecting my family, disrespecting my mother and my father.”

All of these things, she acknowledged, her ill-advised decisions had led to a horrific crime involving two of her close friends, both of whom were robbed at gun point, one of whose life was cut short amid a cold-blooded murder.

But God Whom, much to the delight of this once downtrodden woman of distinct beauty, had eventually stepped in and provided for her a way of escape — one she didn’t sense would have come to fruition.

Not on her time watch.


“I have gotten awesome feedback from my book about how people see why I’m so cautious in my everyday life,” Nahnee said. “I struggle with opening up and trusting people. My dignity has been stripped. My freedom has been robbed. People have a better understanding of why I am the way I am and why I move the way I move with grace and caution.”


While she has no current speaking engagements to promote her new book, another book is forthcoming, Nahnee said.

Generally, Nahnee emphasized that her book was assembled, largely to bring about awareness to other millennials, most notably about the consequences for courting someone twice their age.

BEAUTY FOR ASHES 

“I was given the vision to write this book when I was involved in the shooting and robbery of my two close friends at the age of 15 years old and one of them passed away,” Nahnee told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.

“I just want to reach young girls and boys (and to let them know) it’s not okay to date someone twice your age,” Nahnee said. “It’s okay to be different and respect your upbringing. I want people to know that if you are in a legal situation and you are under 18, don’t speak until your guardian is present to sign anything.

“I want people to be aware of their rights and that sometimes you’re tricked into thinking you’re going home, but yet you just opened your mouth that could potentially cause your life to be thrown away.”

Something to which she greatly attest.

But God.

Texas author Neiki Jones’ awe-inspiring new book figures to be a huge must read

 


And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9 KJV)


GETTIN’ SPIRITUALLY FIT

DESTINY STEPS — In the coming weeks, a massive portion of Neiki Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”

DALLAS — It’s doesn’t matter what she endured in the past.

It’s all working out for the good for Neiki Jones.

Consider, for instance, the immeasurable strides Jones has made as a rising author.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Jones spoke intensely about how she has blessed mightily to connect with her long-awaited vision, particularly through her compelling gift as a writer.

“God actually gave me the vision to write a book about three years ago,” Jones recalled. “I began to write, then life happened and I stopped.”

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

And, in the coming weeks, a massive portion of Jones’ vision will ceremoniously come full circle with the release of her first book entitled, “When The Pieces Begin to Fit.”


PRESALE ORDER NEIKI JONES’ BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/neikij

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

A book that will officially debut on the market on October 10, Jones’ “When The Pieces Begin To Fit” is a testament, of sorts, of the solid work she has exemplified in recent years, both in the natural and the spirit.

“In 2018, that is when the dynamic of the content of the book changed along with the title,” Jones said.

Despite the name change of her first book, it’s safe to assume that Jones’ freshman written work will undoubtedly be a thing of beauty.

For starters, this spiritually-empowering and spiritually gut-checking project, by all accounts, is a printed sermon in its own right, given the featured and pivotal message this writer aspires to get across to her reading audience.


“The divine message I am sending to the audience through this book is that regardless of what life throws at you that giving up is not an option,” explained Jones, sounding very much like a missionary or licensed evangelist. “Also, (you must) not allow fear or people’s opinions stop you from reaching your full potential.”


Let the church say Amen.

But wait. There’s more to this awe-inspiring book that figures to be a constant page-turner for those we deem it necessary to purchase it.

“Never let anyone define who you are, and there is greatness on the inside of you,” said Jones, offering more of what her readers are in for through her new book. “We all have been purposed with a gift and the gift that is on the inside of you might be dormant, but you must connect to the right source. You have to activate that which is on the inside of you.”


THUS SAID THE LORD…

Suddenly, Jones felt compelled to offer a rather intriguing, captivating illustration as it pertains to breaking down her message.

“Just like a battery in our car, when it goes dead, we have jumper cables and have to connect to a battery that has power in order for the car to run,” Jones explained. “(We) just have to make sure we are connected to another battery that has power and not another dead battery.”

A book she began composing in August 2018, Jones needed just shy of a year to complete “When The Pieces Begin To Fit.”

“The (single, most) underlying reason for me to produce this book was to provide hope to those whose lives or situations seem hopeless,” Jones said.

As Jones acknowledged, a few of her peers sensed that her book was long overdue.

“When I first let others know that I was writing a book, the feedback I received was, ‘It is about time,’” Jones said. “So many individuals would tell me that it is time for my story to come out to help others.”

Now that her life-enhancing project is weeks away from making its  ceremonious debut, Jones has announced that another book is surely on the horizon, hopefully much sooner than later.

Interestingly, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Interesting, Jones has become a fixture through the ALAYA  Ministries, a nonprofit organization that’s accompanied by an acronym, which stands for: Activating Leadership To Accomplish Your Ambitions.

Widely regarded as a broad-based community outreach organization, ALAYA  Ministries’ strategic emphasis is dedicated largely to promoting empowerment to women, men and children.

According to organizers for ALAYA  Ministries, this is done by equipping them to achieve leadership skills through support services, personal growth, classes and workshops.

In addition, this allows them to become self-sufficient which, according to ministry officials, is considered unlocking the potential of effective leaders.

Fortunately for Jones, a Houston-area author who is a native of Birmingham, Alabama, she was determined not to allow the hustle and bustle of life deter her from moving forward with her God-mandated assignment.

As for her book, Jones said: “I want people to know that we all have experienced our ‘there’ moment, and to be honest, we still might be in our ‘there,’ but you will come out. In your darkest moments, trust God even more, lean on your faith even more, and see the salvation of the Lord come through for you.

“It is important to understand the season that which you are in,” Jones added. “The higher one goes, expect adversity, but know that God is with you and He is carrying you when you cannot carry yourself.”

Because at the end of the real day, it’ll all work out for your good — something to which this author can greatly attest.

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.

MORE ON BIG TOE SEASONING LLC: https://bigtoeseasonings.com/

“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.”


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.

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.

New York author Gloria V. Key defies insurmountable odds, prospers mightily as mentioned in her book


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


KEYS TO VICTORY 

MOTOWN MIRACLE — Gloria V. Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come. A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

Gloria V. Key steadfastly planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith.

Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.
“I choose to write the book initially to inspire and motivate others to further their education, and to let others know that it’s never too late to go back to school or accomplish your dreams,” Key told Making Headline News during a weekend interview . “As time went on, I realized my message was much bigger than that.”
Indeed it was.
So much so that Key, a Spring Valley, New York-area author, deemed it essential to share of her life-altering testimonies in a rather spirited, remarkably compelling book that figures to impact generations for years to come.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

A native of Detroit, Key is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan,” a project that was officially released in July 2019.

A book that is comprised of 113 pages in length, Key’s “A Key That Turned: Unlocking the Master Plan” is widely regarded as a must read, in large part because it recalls this author’s feel good story, of sorts.

For instance, Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

SEEDS OF GREATNESS — Key planted the seed, meaning she diligently exercised her faith. Much to her delight, God provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

“Her faith in God and family lifted her from the abyss to new heights,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Key’s book. As an adult, she earned multiple college degrees and certifications despite being the sole caretaker of her children and multiple nieces and nephews.

“She is the embodiment of determination and perseverance. From homelessness to hopefulness, poverty to prosperity, Gloria Key’s emotional roller coaster ride proves that you can achieve anything you desire and help others do the same.”

Key did not know who she was or where she came from during which she endured a rather tumultuous season in her life, one that was hampered and saddled by a rash of family struggles, heartbreak, and economic setbacks, many of which stemmed all the way from her youth to adulthood, according to a detailed synopsis of her book at Amazon.com.

To her credit, there did, by all accounts, emerge a much-anticipated breakthrough amid Key’s sometimes stormy and rocky journey, one that was ceremoniously capped by her acquiring a degree from the prestigious Fordham University, a historic, private New York City-based institution that was founded in 1841.

A book that is co-authored by Marc Hoberman, Key emphasized, among other things, that her book serves as a notable reminder that there is true meaning to one’s life, regardless of how discomforting life becomes.


“My divine message is to let others know that despite what you have gone through, God hasn’t forgotten you,” Key said. “(This book is a reminder) to have faith and trust God with all things.”


Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

“I have received overwhelmingly positive responses from my book,” said Key, who began composing her book sometime last year. “People have literally called me in tears, stating that they can relate to the challenges I’ve gone through in my life.”


DESTINY STEPS 

Some, in fact, were practically astounded by this writer’s wealth of transparency in her written work.

“People around me were shocked at the grim details of my life stating, ‘Oh my God…through all that, you’ve always been a positive person with a smile and words of encouragement for others,’” Key recalled. “I am so pleased that I’ve actually motivated others to go back to school including my own son. Others have gotten the courage to seek that promotion at work or learned coping strategies.”

Since the release of “A Key That Turned: Unlocking The Master Plan,” the feedback has been overwhelmingly favorable, Key said.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

Just recently, she appeared on a podcast entitled, “The Susan Brender Show” and has spoken publicly about her book at her church and other community-related events.

Because of the ongoing positive feedback and requests for her newly-assembled book, Key has become inspired to write a sequel.

“I believe that God has brought me full circle,” Key said. “I’ve had such an incredibly challenging life afflicted with so many obstacles, and just around age 50 when I thought I was done or just comfortable, God unleashed His Master Plan.”

Most importantly, He provided the increase, meaning He strategically catapulted her to her destiny.

Houston-area author Nicole Michelle advancing the kingdom mightily through her immeasurable writing gift


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose; For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of His Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters; 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 8:28-31 KJV)


PROVERBS 31 AFFECT 

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has assembled three books to date. Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,” “Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”

DALLAS — Prayer. Purpose. Power.

To her distinctly unique credit, these are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

According to a detailed introduction at https://nicolemichelle.com/, Nicole Michelle is widely regarded as an accomplished evangelist, one who has been appropriately dubbed a “multi- dimensional” Proverbs 31 woman whom, much to her delight, firmly believes when much is given, even more is required.

Once a catalyst in the Corporate America sector — during which she assumed the role as an Executive Director with an international public accounting firm, which was accompanied by a multiple six-figure income — Nicole Michelle has proven to be a crafty author, of sorts, given she has penned three books to date.

Three of her most prized written works: “Overcoming Mediocrity,”Prayers Of The Righteous That Availeth Much,” and “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You.”


BUY NICOLE MICHELLE’S BOOKS HERE: https://nicolemichelle.com/

For Nicole Michelle, each of her awe-inspiring books is a thing of beauty, in large part because these projects are steadily having a massive impact, particularly in the Body of Christ.

“In 2012, I went through a prayer desert where I literally could not pray,” Nicole Michelle told Making Headline News this week. “(I’m) a prayer warrior and an intercessor….but I could not pray.  The only words I could utter were, ‘Lord, bless the mess.’ That is what my life was at that time, a mess. But God turned my mess into my message.”

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle said.

“God spoke to me and said, ‘If you could not pray as the prayer warrior and intercessor that you are, what about my other children?’” Nicole Michelle recalled. “God downloaded over 350 prayer topics to me and I released my first volume of 110 prayer topics in February 2017.”

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

And just like that, she had steadfastly found her niche in this, the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“I wanted to circumvent any other prayer desert,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining in detailed the purpose for her books. “My books are meant to be catalysts that allow individuals to jump start their prayer life through daily devotional time with God.

“’Prayers Of the Righteous That Availeth Much’ is dedicated to the believers, individuals, intercessors, and prayer warriors who struggle to pray when the cares of life become overwhelming,” Nicole Michelle added.

Interestingly, what this Christian-based author had ultimately come to discover was that uttering “Lord, bless my mess” was a sufficient enough dialogue with the Father that would give way to her acquiring the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought at the time.

As for “COMMON WEALTH: Looks Just Like You,” this Houston-area author emphasized, among other things, that this project was designed to allow individuals to become what she appropriately describes as their “best financial self,” a rather unique and essential disposition that aligns with 3 John 1:2, she acknowledged.

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

Subsequently, her first volume was released in Spring 2017, followed by the ensuing volume approximately two years later.

Not to be outdone, it was because Nicole Michelle had exemplified unwavering faith that God, in turn, ceremoniously bestowed upon her the fruit of her labor by allowing her to release the sophomore volume of financial devotionals in April 2019, a development that ironically unfolded on her 45th birthday.

To her credit, she’s since been as good as advertised as a rising and gifted author.

To God be the glory.

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle, explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

A beloved mother, mentor, executive business woman, humanitarian, philanthropist, publisher, and an independent certified speaker, Nicole Michelle’s authorship talents were initially put on display sometime Fall 2016.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mention spiritually empowering.

“I have had First Ladies tell me that the prayer devotional literally saved their marriage, because they could spend their devotional time in prayer and privately deal with their issues and concerns by getting naked before God,” Nicole Michelle said. “Love covers a multitude of faults. God knows the evidence, but He conceals it from the enemy and your enemies. God also has a witness protection program that will change your identity once you have been purged and cleansed with His Word.”

“I want the readers to know that they can stay connected to the Father through prayer and that they are able to tap into God’s power and achieve the lifestyle of health, wealth, and abundance that God has desired for us as believers,” said Nicole Michelle explaining the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through her books.”

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

She has, in fact, announced the future releases of four devotional volumes that will be centered on “Faith, Family, Healing and, Deliverance,” she said.

As expected, the overall feedback since the release of her books has been favorable, for the most part — not to mentioning spiritually empowering.

“My tests have become my testimonies,” Nicole Michelle said. “God has given me a ministry of transparency and allowed me to share with others the knowledge that I have garnered over the years. Knowledge is power and it is important that we utilize the resources around us to tap into that power.

Additional books are forthcoming, said Nicole Michelle, a native of Missouri City, Texas.

“My gift has made room for me and allowed me to share the good news of the Gospel across this nation.”

Thanks in large part to:  Prayer. Purpose. Power.

Which, of course, are just a trio of spiritual superlatives that greatly sum up who Nicole Michelle is.

Is Oklahoma businessman Carlos Morrison the beard growth industry’s best kept secret?

DON’T FEAR DA BEARD 

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Tulsa, Oklahoma entrepreneur Carlos Morrison ceremoniously launched Ebony Rise For Men in 2016, a credible product that was created primarily for men who struggle with beard growth and basic skin care regimes.

DALLAS — In case you don’t know him, Carlos Morrison would like to introduce himself.

A resident of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Morrison, 32, earlier this year was deemed a keynote entrepreneur through Black Upstart.
In addition, he was named Oklahoma 40-and-under 40 in Business & Marketing in 2018, during which he successfully created business profits for hundreds of individuals that same year.

MORE ON EBONY RISE FOR MEN: https://ebonyriseformen.com/

As if those notable accolades aren’t enough to turn heads, Morrison ceremoniously launched Ebony Rise For Men in 2016, a credible product that was created primarily for men who struggle with beard growth and basic skin care regimes.

Specifically created for ethnic men ages ranging in ages 18 to 65 — most notably those with coarse, curly, or oily facial hair — Morrison’s Ebony Rise For Men can customarily be applied virtually every day, thus growing consumers’ beard up to as much as two-to-four inches, as mentioned at https://ebonyriseformen.com/erlg.

Having joined Russell Brunson’s Inner Circle in 2015, Morrison told Making Headline News during a weekend interview that he deemed it especially necessary to start his own business, in large part because of numerous failed attempts to grow his beard.


“I created (Ebony Rise For Men), because I was unable to grow facial hair and, after becoming bald, I wanted something to keep up with my look,” said Morrison, whose fledging business venture is supported mightily by a gallery of supporters, most notably his wife, Chephon Morrison.


When all else failed, Carlos Morrison acknowledged, it was time he aggressively step out on faith by strategically executing the unlikely trend of, well…stepping out of faith.

Much to his delight, it wasn’t long thereafter that miraculously Morrison came up with a project that, to his credit, is making a strong case to have what this young entrepreneur hopes is a global impact.

It seems he’s well on his way to reaching such a milestone.

“I tried many products, but still struggled with patches and dryness,” Morrison, a licensed CDL Class A truck driver, explained.

Not to be outdone, though, this entrepreneurship guru had gone as far as to implement the essential result, a trend he didn’t shy away from until he reaped the favorable results he so desperately sought.


LET’S RISE UP

“(My products) have been used by individuals across the U.S. and in the Bahamas and Mexico,” Morrison said. “The purpose is to help men feel more confident and to help them take care of their beards the proper way with natural products manufactured in the U.S.”

“I looked up ingredients that would solve issues and formulated an oil with those ingredients that promoted hair growth,” Morrison, a former Marketing student at the University of Illinois at Springfield, recalled.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

When all else failed, Carlos Morrison acknowledged, it was time he aggressively step out on faith by strategically executing the unlikely trend of, well, stepping out of faith.

Fortunately for Morrison, Ebony Rise For Men has been on the rise for three years. And counting.

Interestingly, Morrison’s invention is steadily making its presence felt, particularly outside of the United States.

“(My products) have been used by individuals across the U.S. and in the Bahamas and Mexico,” Morrison said. “The purpose is to help men feel more confident and to help them take care of their beards the proper way with natural products manufactured in the U.S.

“I tried many products, but still struggled with patches and dryness,” Morrison, a licensed CDL Class A truck driver, explained.

“My goal is to inspire men of color who really needed a product designed specifically them that they can have a great routine that produces amazing results.”

To his credit, he’s doing just that, all the while having a constant global impact in the process.

North Carolina author Angel McClain McCaskill embraces her God-mandated vision, courtesy of a new book


But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)


GOD’S BELOVED SURVIVOR 

SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST Having gotten news of her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2007, Angel McClain McCaskill deemed it necessary to keep a journal throughout her memorable, life-changing journey, a trend that allowed her to recall a slew of things, all while having virtually no indication that God was strategically positioning her to assemble a book entitled, “From A Survivor’s Eye.”

The very moment God had given to Angel McClain McCaskill the vision, she did exactly what He essentially commanded her do.

She steadfastly ran with it.
And, what’s even more astounding is that McCaskill wasn’t merely about to allow her unlikely breast cancer diagnosis to stop her from living her best life.
“God gave me the vision after a powerful forefront women’s conference last July,” McCaskill, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the remarkably compelling events that have contributed mightily to her endeavor as an accomplished author. “My mentor, Lady Leah McNair, went into prayer with me, and five months later, we had a book.”
And the rest, as they say, was history.
Thanks in large part to McCaskill’s act of obedience unto God, coupled with the fervent prayers of her spiritual leader — as well as other intercessors — God has greatly empowered her to become the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “From A Survivor’s Eye.”

CONNECT WITH AUTHOR McCASKILL TO BUY HER BOOK: https://www.facebook.com/ammccaskill

An intriguing, life-altering written work that was officially published in January 2019, McCaskill needed somewhere in the neighborhood of just under a half of a year to compose a book that has already begun to generate of array of favorable reviews from her reading audience.

Having fielded news of her breast cancer diagnosis in August 2007, McCaskill deemed it necessary to keep a journal throughout her memorable, life-changing journey, a trend that allowed her to recall a slew of things, all while having virtually no indication that God was strategically positioning her to assemble a book.

Yep. That’s just like God, ushering His children to their destiny, as only He could.

For what it’s worth, McCaskill — who’s “open to speaking engagements and book signings” — considers herself thorough blessed that God had strategically set her aside for His use for such a notable and memorable time as now.

For McCaskill, a native of York, South Carolina who resides in Charlotte, North Carolina, while she’s undoubtedly endured her share of turmoil and hardships through her breast cancer diagnosis, amongst the things about she relishes the most of how God’s continues to provide her a way of escape.

“No matter what you face — it doesn’t have to be breast cancer — God will get you through it,” said McCaskill, explaining the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her book. “I promise you. We all have survived something and with the help of the Lord (and) you can too.”

According to detailed synopsis at Amazon.com, McCaskill’s “From A Survivor’s Eye” is what this Christian-based writer describes as a “powerful book” of breast cancer survival.

“Follow the journey of Angel McCaskill, from discovery to healing and wholeness. You are guaranteed to be enlightened and inspired to persevere through any challenge in your life,” said an Amazon spokesperson for this author’s book she’s garnered since her book’s release.

“So many wonderful remarks and positive feedback…from men and women, saying how inspired they are from reading and they are ready for another one,” said McCaskill, adding that she plans to compose a 30-day inspirational journal in the foreseeable future.

For what it’s worth, McCaskill — who’s “open to speaking engagements and book signings” — considers herself thoroughly blessed that God has strategically set her aside for His use for such a notable and memorable time as now.


PROVERBS 31 FACTOR

Thanks in large part to McCaskill’s act of obedience unto God, coupled with the fervent prayers of spiritual leader — as well as other intercessors — God has greatly empowered her to become the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “From A Survivor’s Eye.”

“It was finished after my treatments, surgery, and recovery,” McCaskill said. “And it wasn’t until I realized that I had a book.”

How remarkably astounding for this devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, wasn’t merely about to allow her dreaded breast cancer diagnosis to stop her from living her best life.

Period.

In that order.

Amen…and Amen.

Yep. That’s just like God, ushering His children to their destiny, as only He could.
