South Carolina entrepreneur Ebony Hughes defies health-related challenges, becomes a fixture for 7 Dimensions

In case you don’t know her, Ebony Hughes would like to introduce herself.

A native of Hemingway, South Carolina, Hughes, 35, is a proud graduate of Hemingway’s Carvers Bay High School.

She would eventually advance her educational endeavors at Coastal Carolina University in nearby Conway, which has greatly enabled her to pursue, fulfill, and carry out her dream as a rising businesswoman.

MAKING HER PRESENCE FELT — Georgetown, South Carolina-area businesswoman Ebony Hughes has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

Credit her seemingly dysfunctional and unhealthy lifestyle as arguably the biggest reasons why.

“After starting my insurance business and working around the clock to grow it successfully, my work and personal life became unbalanced,” Hughes told Making Headline News this week. “Over time, I became over weight. I had to buy larger clothes and I had become ashamed of my body.”

For Hughes, she was determined to see to it that such health-related hurdles were short-lived.

That, after all, practically sums up why she has become a fixture for 7 Dimensions, a universally-acclaimed online keto coaching platform, whereby Hughes is responsible largely for coaching people on achieving their health and fitness goals in seven areas of life.

“My team and I make sure that clients get a customized meal and training plan and follow up with them regularly, most times daily to motivate them to stay on track with their plan and remind them of their goals to keep them accountable,” said Hughes, providing a thorough overview of her business venture.

Amongst the factors that are especially intriguing about Hughes’ business is that because it is an online endeavor, she’s afforded the golden opportunity to have more of a global impact.

 

“I like that my business helps people on an online platform and app so that I can stay connected to my clients and have a more balanced life,” Hughes said of a venture that caters to people of all ages.

Interestingly, 7 Dimensions has evolved and attracted a global presence, in large part because it is committed to helping its clients embrace the notion that this journey has no final destination, according to a spokesperson for 7 Dimensions at https://www.my7dimensions.com/.

“We don’t stop when we find a treasure chest at the end of a rainbow,” the 7 Dimensions spokesperson added. “There are three treasures that you will find almost immediately, and that will grow in power every day you maintain this journey with us: getting healthier, sustained energy, and a love of life that can only come from the natural rush of endorphins blasting your body with every beat of your pounding heart.”

Much to the delight to Hughes, those are the essential and therapeutic benefits she has acquired since joining 7 Dimensions.

Which is to say that she has nowhere to go but up in what has become a globally-acclaimed company.

“I started feeling sluggish and tired,” said Hughes, recalling those during which she struggled with her health. “I just knew that I was sick and no doctor had to tell me this. The craziest part of it all is that I knew better as I majored in health promotion. I knew that I needed to lose the fat.

“I promised myself that would lose weight and joined a gym, and I lost a few pounds, but I still felt bad and gave up after a while of busting my butt at the gym and eating, what I thought was, healthy foods. A few short months later, I lost my breath and thought that I was going to die on my sofa. I began to pray to the Lord to ask Him to help me live so my children would not find me dead.” — Ebony Hughes 


 

For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — For Hughes, God not only gave her another chance at life but, most importantly, He ushered her into the divine purpose for which He created her, something about which she doesn’t take lightly.

“I immediately made the decision to see a weight-loss coach,” Hughes said. “I started researching diets and started to understand why I had not lost any significant amount of what. It’s because I was addicted to sugar, and most Americans are as well. I learned that quitting sugar or managing sugar cravings is harder to do than a person trying to quit heroin. After thousands of dollars spent, I did lose weight and I was motivated to help others do the same.”

She’s doing just that with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I know through my own life experiences of being overweight, sick, and (harboring) low self-esteem, I knew others were going through the same thing,” said Hughes, adding that her children are amongst those who inspired her to achieve her health-related goals. “I believe cultural ideologies, education or the lack thereof, media, and other environmental factors affect a person’s outcome, so I want to be the mediator for as many people as I can help.”

Maryland author Dallas Gordon defies a slew of hurdles, composes a kingdom-advancing book


For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. (Romans 8:18 KJV) 


Dallas Gordon’s book is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release date and, much to her delight, it’s already having a massive kingdom impact.

According to those who are closely connected to Gordon, a Harford County, Maryland-based author, her newly-produced book entitled, “From Pain To Power: Embrace The Lesson And Reclaim Your Power,” will be the center of discussion during a local Bible study in the coming weeks.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — According to those who are closely connected to Dallas Gordon, a Hartford County, Maryland-based author, her newly-produced book entitled, “From Pain To Power: Embrace The Lesson And Reclaim Your Power,” will be the center of discussion during a local Bible study in the coming weeks.

For Gordon, such an intriguing development undoubtedly is in alignment with the divine purpose she’s convinced that God had for her book since He strategically assigned her to compose it.

“I had been writing this book since childhood, but never published anything until recently,” Gordon, an Owings Mills, Maryland native, told Making Headline News this week. “I was in a really hard season, and was writing my way through it.”

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, Gordon not only used her immeasurable gifts as a young writer to help spiritually bail her out of her tumultuous season in the wilderness.

Rather, she used her dazzling writing mechanics to help steer her into a much-needed and intimate fellowship with God.

ROUND OF APPLAUSE — As expected, Gordon’s reading audience has collectively applauded and commended her for obeying God’s Voice by moving forward with a book she had finished writing some time last year.

That, to her credit, practically sums up why her newly-assembled project is having an immediate kingdom impact.

“It was during hard times that it was impressed in my spirit to just write,” said Gordon, explaining how God had gone about giving her the vision to write her book. “During that season, I was so conflicted as to why everything seemed to be going wrong. I could barely utter a word in prayer, so I just wrote.”

For what it worth is, the more she wrote, the more revelation knowledge she began to acquire.

The more revelation knowledge she began to acquire, the more she began to steadfastly build up her spirit man.

The more she began to build up her spirit man, the more she began to witness just why God had strategically handpicked her to produce a life-enhancing, spiritually-driven book for such a time as now.

Never mind that her heart was suddenly broken into pieces along what undoubtedly was a rough and rugged, sometimes seemingly unbearable journey as a young writer.

“My dad passed away a couple years ago during the season of me writing this book,” Gordon explained.” His death was very unexpected and made me realize just how much life isn’t promised. This heartbreak pushed me over the edge and into actually publishing my very first book.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

BUT GOD — Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, Gordon not only used her immeasurable gifts as a young writer to help spiritually bail her out of her tumultuous season in the wilderness.

Despite the untimely death of her father, despite the assortment of unfavorable situations and circumstances, even when it seemed her faith was bleak and on the brink of evaporating, God has ultimately stepped in and rescued her child as only He could.


“That pain is inevitable, but we can change our perspective and take our power back while doing so,” said Gordon, explaining the slew of developments surrounding a From Pain To Power book that is comprised of 84 pages and was officially released on September 17. “I believe one of my great purposes in life is to lead people into freedom, mentally, spiritually and financially. This book is helping people to live a life of freedom and have joy even in trying times.”


As expected, Gordon’s reading audience has collectively applauded and commended her for obeying God’s Voice by moving forward with a book she had finished writing some time last year.

FAMILY FOCUS — Gordon’s book is a little more than a month removed from its much-anticipated release date and, much to her delight, it’s already having a massive kingdom impact.

“I’m amazed by the positive reactions,” said Gordon, who’s widely also as a motivational speaker and expert business coach. “I’ve received from the book. It’s changing lives one person at a time.”

Interestingly, Gordon’s new book has garnered a favorable media presence, considering she was recently was interviewed on the Mavericks On The Move Show and also appeared on the show, “Accelerate With Valencia Daniel.”

“I want for people to know that no matter what they’re grieving, whether it is a loss of a business, spouse or loved one, that there is life after losing someone or something,” Gordon said. “Problems happen, but we can walk in victory when we choose the higher road, which is positive thinking. With a strong mindset and faith in God, we can conquer anything.”

Something that, in all likelihood, will be reinforced in the coming week’s when her book becomes the center of discussion during a local Bible study.

Talk about God using His child for His glory.

Tampa’s Michelle Greene Rhodes savoring the best of both worlds as a medical professional, entrepreneur

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE GREENE RHODES


One thing about Michelle Greene Rhodes, she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

She’s not just aware of it, mind you.

Given the progressive and flourishing strides she’s made over the years, Rhodes’ reputation is such that she’s destined to go above and beyond to live her best life as an accomplished medical professional.

And not just live and savor her best life but, most importantly, she’s committed to helping others follow suit.

WHAT ABOUT MICHELLE? 
 www.MichelleRhodesOnline.com

COACH ENTREPRENEUR — A native of St Petersburg, Florida who boasts a solid career as a registered nurse, Michelle Greene Rhodes is the mastermind by an immeasurable coaching business, which allows her to inspire and empower nurses into entrepreneurship.

“(I want) to see more nurses fulfilled by their purpose,” Rhodes, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining her mission that has benefited her mightily as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.

“(I have) the desire to see nurses fulfill their dreams and passion outside of the hospital,” said Rhodes, explaining how her competitive drive in life has helped propel her for her business venture. “We have so much to offer. I love the freedom it brings and the purpose it fulfills.”

MAJOR CAREER MILESTONE — In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable.

That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

Comprised of 220 pages, Rhodes’ “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology” is centered mostly on the spiritually-enhancing subject that is victory, most notably how victory has been commonly defined as what she describes as the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist.

“In life, many of us have had to triumph over trials and tribulations to meet a particular goal in life,” said a spokesperson for Rhodes recently-released book at Amazon.com. “Those who do not allow hardships to defeat them have been known as overcomers. When it comes to becoming a nurse or enduring a nursing career, it is known that the schooling is rigorous, the work is tough, the shifts are long and there are some nights that we cannot sleep due to thinking about the shift before. This anthology was created to inspire women, nurses and future nurses to not give up when hard times come. You see, after the rain comes the sunshine.”

A pretty empowering synopsis of a scintillating written document that will be on display when Rhodes hosts her fourth book signing, this time on Saturday, October 20 at a Tampa-area Barnes And Noble.

“We’ll also be launching my 2nd Annual Nurses Book Drop, (during which) I (introduce) 10 nurses as authors,” Rhodes said. “Last year’s event was a huge success.”

A coaching business that went into full operations in November 2016, Rhodes emphasized, among other things, that her sustained success has come to fruition, courtesy of her fervent desire to esteem and inspire others daily.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well.” — Michelle Greene Rhodes


A business venture that mostly accommodates women ranging in ages 28 to 48, Rhodes has been afforded the golden opportunity to put her work-related gifts on display in a variety of places, even as far as in the Bahamas.

Interestingly, in May 2019, she will be empowering women in Paris, France along with internationally-acclaimed speaker, Cheryl Wood.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well,” Rhodes said. 

Now we know why she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

Texas author Annie Ezell’s empowering book helping others ‘see their potential through pain’


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES LADY ANNIE EZELL  


Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6 KJV)


DALLAS — Long before Annie Ezell became the First Lady of Latter Rain Church of God In Christ in nearby Sherman, Texas, God had strategically introduced her to an awe-inspiring vision, one that essentially unfolded nearly four decades ago.

“The vision of me becoming an author started to form when I was in my 20’s,” Ezell told Making Headline News this week. “It was difficult to take the first step or know where to begin, but I knew it was a long-term goal.”

Indeed it was.

And so it came to pass sometime in 2012 that Ezell began to diligently work her vision as a newcomer to this ever-so-popular world of authorship, a trend that was culminated approximately two years later when she witnessed her compelling finished project that is entitled, “Making Decisions Is Not Always Easy: A Memoir Of Unspoken Words.”

GOD’S LEADING FIRST LADY — And so it came to pass sometime in 2012 that Sherman, Texas author Annie Ezell began to diligently work her vision as a newcomer to ever-so-popular world of authorship, a trend that was culminated approximately two years when she witnessed her finished project that is entitled, “Making Decisions Is Not Always Easy: A Memoir Of Unspoken Words.”

A spiritually-enhancing written document that is comprised of 72 pages in length, Ezell’s “Making Decisions Is Not Always Easy: A Memoir Of Unspoken Words” was officially released in March 2014 and, much to her delight, has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ.

“This memoir is a reminder that better days are ahead if you make the right decisions,” said a spokesperson for Ezell’s book in a detailed breakdown of her work at Amazon.com. “For Annie Ezell, making the right decisions only came through patience, prayer, and learning from her experiences. Life events from a young child into adulthood have conditioned her to help guide others through difficult decisions.

MASSIVE KINGDOM IMPACT — A spiritually-enhancing written document is comprised of 72 pages in length, Ezell’s “Making Decisions Is Not Always Easy: A Memoir Of Unspoken Words” was officially released in March 2014 and has become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ.

“Her wisdom comes from spiritual guidance and obedience to her calling to encourage others to not give up when they are faced with a difficult situation. Her appearance doesn’t tell the story: Open the cover to discover the truth about her life.”

As Ezell, 60, eloquently explained, she had always sensed that she would eventually find her way to the ideal platform to share of her assortment of testimonies, as God’s manual encourages us, according to Psalm 105:1.

Now that it all has come to pass, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that, well, He was there all the time (as the classic gospel song goes).

“I always wanted to tell my story, but I had some reserve, because of the layers of pain it would evoke,” Ezell, a native of Haworth, Oklahoma, said. “This particular publication came later after the experience of losing my mother. I wanted others to understand that when they are faced with difficult decisions, there is a system to defeating self-doubt and pain.”

Interestingly, Ezell will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her book and share of her testimonies as the keynote speaker on October 13 during a Women’s Conference.

Accompanied by the theme, “Forgiven But Not Healed (Matthew 6:14-15),” this assembly will take place at the United Way Building, located at 713 East Brockett Street in Sherman, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. CST.

As for ways in which her book is synonymous to the purpose for which God created her, Ezell emphasized, among other things, that her reading audience should look no further than her solid, relentless faith walk.

GOD’S MYSTICAL UNION — A product of the Church of God In Christ under the leadership of Superintendent F. T. Pratt Sr. Which — “He taught me the value of a Christian life,” Ezell said — Ezell and husband, Pastor James Ezell (the couple will be celebrating 40 years of marriage on December 31) had ultimately raised their children under similar Christian standards, teaching them morals, empathy, respect, and workmanship, among other things.

“This book is a part of my purpose by allowing me to testify and be a witness of faith, obedience, and victory. It became my platform for speaking to women of all status. It also built my confidence that led me to develop the Forgiven But Not Healed as a Women’s Ministry.” — Lady Annie Ezell 


Widely known as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and counselor, Ezell founded her Forgiven But Not Healed ministry two years ago. Initially, it started as a small women’s ministry that was centered mostly on Q&A sessions.

“We (would) gather and have open discussion about salvation and forgiveness on a monthly basis, helping women through their pained experiences and quest to forgiveness,” Ezell said her ministry, which has evolved into more of a spiritual movement, of sorts. “This year will be the first conference inviting attendees from the sessions and is open to the public.”

Prior to their appointment as spiritual leaders, Latter Rain was guided by Elder Clevester and Gladys Johnson

“The support from my husband, children, and spiritual leaders has pushed me to be a virtuous woman, having faith and praying fervently for my family,” Lady Ezell said.

The feedback that has been generated since her book’s release has been favorable.

DESTINY STEPS — Widely known as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, friend, and counselor, Ezell founded her Forgiven But Not Healed ministry two year ago. Initially, it started as a small women’s ministry that was centered mostly on Q&A sessions.

“My audience has found this book to be a comforting reference during hard times,” Lady Ezell said. “Men and women comment on their similar experiences and positive encouragement as they are faced with difficult times. It has given hope and spiritual uplift for many.

“I’m inspired to continue writing for women audiences and helping them see their potential through the pain,” conditioned Lady Ezell, a mother of four and grandmother of four who has announced that other books are presently in the works. “I’ve prayed for wisdom and God has shaped my heart and mind to be accepting of others and have the patience to meet them where they are in their journey with Christ.”

Just as out Savior has encouraged us to.

The WORD Network to air Prophetess Maria Vaughn’s 4th Annual Eagle Excellence Awards in September 2019


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES PROPHETESS MARIA VAUGHN AND THE WORD NETWORK 


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17)


Dr. Maria Vaughn wasn’t just born and raised in the church.

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, her reputation is such that she routinely goes to great lengths to advance the kingdom.

In remarkably impressive fashion for the most part.

“My mother is an evangelist and my father is a deacon,” Dr. Vaughn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I have great support from my family, which I draw strength from.”

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known throughout the Body of Christ as Prophetess Maria Vaughn, this Crisfield, Maryland native is not only the proud Founder and CEO of Exodus Deliverance Outreach Ministries, Inc., her Lakewood, New Jersey-based non-profit organization — which has sponsored an assortment of community-related events and awarded scholarships to prospective college students — but she has gained widespread respect amongst her peers for having organized the Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony.

Such unyielding family support, coupled with the massive divine calling on her life, have benefited Dr. Vaughn mightily, considering her ministry is steadily attracting more of global presence.

MORE ON THE EAGLE EXCELLENCE AWARDS: https://www.eagleawards.org

NATIONAL IMPACT — Next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards Ceremony, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

An event that is entering its fourth year of existence, the Eagle Excellence Awards is widely regarded as a mandate, of sorts, whereby organizers deem it essential to honor, celebrate, and encourage Pastors, reminding them, among other things, that their immeasurable kingdom-based work is not being executed in vain.

“Although their ultimate reward will come from God, we deem it necessary to give thanks to them for the years of selfless service that they give to the Kingdom of God,” said a spokesperson for the Eagle Excellence Awards in a synopsis at https://www.eagleawards.org/.


MORE ON THE WORD NETWORK: http://www.thewordnetwork.org/

Roughly a month removed from the latest awards ceremony, Dr. Vaughn’s Fourth Annual Eagle Excellence Awards Show figures to be just as adventurous, thus attracting more of a universal presence.

That’s because next year’s event, which will be nationally televised by The WORD Network, will be hosted by Bishop Greg Davis, and will take place on September 7, 2019 at 5 p.m. EST from Lakewood, New Jersey.

Available in over 200 countries while reaching millions of viewers in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, and appearing in nearly 93 million homes in the United States, The WORD Network is widely regarded as largest African-American religious network in the world. 

A venue for the next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards has yet to be determined.

WORTHY OF DOUBLE HONOR — Interestingly, Eagle Excellence Awards organizers have had the luxury of paying homage to more than 150 Pastors from around the country, in part because a number of them haven’t gotten the respect and exposure they rightfully deserve, Dr. Vaughn emphasized.

If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that next year’s event figures to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

“We have been able to host many ministry leaders in the communities to bless the Body of Christ,” Dr. Vaughn said.

Amongst those leaders are Bishop Hezekiah Walker, Pastor Tye Tribbett, Evangelist Vicki Winans, Evangelist Karen Clark Sheard, Evangelist Dorinda Clark Cole, Bishop Jason Nelson, Charles Butler & Trinity, the Mann’s Tour, the Bloody Win Tour, Bishop Marvin Sapp, Le’Andria Johnson, and Tasha Page Lockhart, just to name a few.

“Many leaders have been overlooked for their sacrifices and endeavors. During our Eagle Excellence Awards ceremony, we have let the leaders know that their work is not being done in vain. Our desire is to be a blessing by giving back to our youth and communities.” — Prophetess Maria Vaughn 


MUCH SPIRITUAL HOOPLA — If the previous three years are any indication, it’s safe to assume that the 2019 Eagle Excellence Awards figure to attract a slew of prominent personalities throughout the Body of Christ.

Also, next year’s Eagle Excellence Awards will be comprised of what Dr. Vaughn said are “specific changes,” most notably a newly-established production team, a variety of commercials and promos months leading to the event, as well as new marketing strategies that will enable organizers to enhance the event’s vision.

In addition, Dr. Vaughn and her staff are devising more effective and strategic ways to implement networking and continuing long-term relationships, all the while adding more volunteers and community involvement, particularly as it relates to creating more activities to brand the forthcoming Eagle Excellence Awards, she said.

Texas entrepreneur Derrell Noris creates a credible app for Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DERRELL NORIS


Another notable milestone, another step in the right direction for Texas businessman Derrell Noris.

TEXAS SIZE DEVELOPMENTAccording Houston businessman Derrell Noris, a former Corporate America professional, Fresh Tech Solutionz on August 13 assembled what is known as the ‘GHBC Mobile App,’ a development that had ultimately given way to the app being officially published at the beginning of October.
“We would love to create similar mobile apps for other Chambers of Commerce around the world,” Noris told Making Headline News this week, adding that consumers can now download the ‘GHBC Mobile App’ from their Apple App store or at Google Playstore. Amongst the reasons Noris’ partnership with GHBC is especially vital is that GHBC officials requested that the mobile app be assembled so that it could be available for Apple and Android, a trend that will allow users to join the chamber, view the GHBC’s up-to-date events, search the GHBC business directory, view current job openings, connect with GHBC social media pages, view business opportunities, and even donate to the GHBC.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Formed in September 1935, several prominent community leaders organized the Houston Negro Chamber of Commerce (or HNCC at the time) to empower and promote African-American businesses in the city. By and large, they focused on encouraging business within the African-American community. However, in 1964, under the leadership of Mack H. Hannah, Jr., the chamber changed its name to the Houston Citizens Chamber Of Commerce (or HCCC). Interestingly, even as the Chamber membership expanded mightily, it wasn’t until 2013 that the chamber rebranded its look, thus naming its institution the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce (or GHBC).

Interestingly, even as the Chamber membership expanded mightily, it wasn’t until 2013 that the chamber rebranded its look, thus naming its institution the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce (or GHBC). As for the newly-established GHBC app, Noris and his team are confident that it will benefit this organization for years to come. “This will be a better way to connect to members,” Noris explained. “They will be able to send push notifications instead of sending emails to notify users of important announcements and upcoming events.”
CHECK THIS OUT —“The app will also make black businesses, job openings, and business opportunities more accessible and easier to locate,” Noris said. “The app can also be used to showcase major events like the Pinnacle Awards. There is a section added in to highlight pictures and business links for all of the finalists for these prestigious awards being given out at the ceremony.”

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — As for the newly-established GHBC app, Noris and his team are confident that it will benefit this organization for years to come.
Located at 1301 Fannin Street, Suite 2440 in the greater Houston Metroplex, Fresh Tech Solutionz is widely known for developing affordable mobile apps and websites for businesses as a unique way to enable companies mobilize business processes and, most importantly, increase customer engagement. “I created Fresh Tech Solutionz, because I was doing mobile development in Corporate America and figured that I could do this for myself,” Noris said during a March 2016 interview with Making Headline News. That he has managed once again to prove to be nothing short of impressive through his venture has benefited him mightily. Talk about doing things big in Texas.

“I have been a proud member of the Greater Houston Black Chamber of Commerce since January 2018, but have been attending their events since I started Fresh Tech Solutionz 2 years ago. The events that the GHBC have are phenomenal and really showcase the excellence and necessity of black business in Houston, and I’m blessed to be a part of that.” — Houston businessman Derrell Noris 


Another notable milestone, another step in the right direction for this accomplished Texas businessman.

Mid-South-area model Kimberly Thompson took time Friday morning to address the media in her quest to emerge victorious, thus come away with a pretty notable and commendable honor.

“Regardless of the outcome of this contest, I truly already feel like a winner,” Thompson told Making Headline News.

Still, credit Thompson for essentially having adopted a winning feeling as she vies for being named the cover tattoo model for Ink Magazine.

VOTE FOR KIMBERLY THOMPSON HERE: https://inkedcover.com/2018/kimberly-glass

SHE NEEDS YOUR VOTE — Credit Jackson, Mississippi native Kimberly Thompson for essentially having adopted a winning feeling as she vies for being named the cover tattoo model for Ink Magazine.

A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential global exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

“Modeling is a career that I have always dreamed of doing,” Thompson explained. “It wasn’t until recently that I made up my mind to take the chance to pursue it.”

For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-pressed to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

TURNING HEADS — A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

For starters, she’s clinging to an impressive third place spot in her selected group, one that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

“In order for me to stay in this competition, I have to find ways to increase my votes,” Thompson said without hesitation, yet with such great optimism.

The second round of voting is currently taking place and ends October 9.

If Thompson advances to the third round, she will have emerged as one of 20 models who will still be alive to grace the front cover of Ink.


SO FAR, SO GOOD — Thompson is clinging to an impressive third place in her selected group that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

Only 10 contestants will advance to the fourth round, something Thompson is hopeful she manages to pull off.

Of course, she will need some much-needed help — and votes — from those who have supported her since she elected to delve off into modeling, since she had finally come to grips with the notion that maybe, just maybe she can enjoy a pretty amazing career in this industry.


“You can sometimes be your own worst enemy by putting limitations on yourself. I am just realizing that this was something that I was doing to myself. I have come to the realization that life is what you make it. The mind is a powerful thing.” — Professional Model Kimberly Thompson 


For what it’s worth, that she has already staged an impressive showing in the Ink Magazine contest is a testament of her overall body of work in such a brief timeframe as model.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — For Thompson if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Everyone in life will have a story to tell,” said Thompson, who holds an Associate Degree in Science from Holmes Community College and an RN Associate Degree from Meridian Community College. “As you get older, you began to realize that you never stop learning or striving for something in life. I will never stop striving to better myself.

“The most important testament I have learned is to love all of me,” Thompson added. “This includes my flaws as well as my imperfections. Many of us are scared to have imperfections. But imperfections are used to make you the person you are meant to be. It is a game changer.”

NEW MODEL ON THE BLOCK — For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-press to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

For Thompson, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Going on age 40, I am starting a new beginning in my life,” Thompson said. A life filled with no walls and limitless possibilities. My phoenix tattoo is a representation of my rebirth. I will continue to rise through the ashes and make my dreams a reality.”

Regardless of the outcome of this contest.

In the meantime, she’s still very much in the running. 

So go vote.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — To grasp a thorough understanding of how vital Thomas’ organization is especially prevalent for such time as now as Making Headline News kicks off its Bishop T. D. Jakes’ 2018 Woman Thou Art Loosed advance coverage, look no further than the staggering numbers amongst suicides in America in recent years.

According to a June 2018 report by The Washington Post, suicide rates rose in all but one state between 1999 and 2016, with increases seen across age, gender, race, and ethnicity, as cited in a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

In addition, the organization discovered that of more than half of all deaths in 27 states, the people had no known mental health condition when they ended their lives.

All things considered, these are amongst the reasons Thomas has become especially committed to doing whatever is necessary to impact lives — one life at a time.

Southern Mississippi businesswoman Michelle Barefoot can be appropriately deemed a serial entrepreneur

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE BAREFOOT


Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Hattiesburg, Mississippi-area businesswoman customarily wears.

For starters, Barefoot is the owner and chief executive officer of Barefoot Footography, LLC, whereby she is the featured photographer and specializes as a graphic artist.

Or as Barefoot eloquently puts it…

DESTINY STEPS — Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur. Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Houston-area businesswoman customarily wears.

“I am an-all occasion photographer,” Barefoot, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, introducing her featured venture that was established in 2008.

Besides being afforded the luxury of displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

A marketing-oriented venture that is powered by what is known as the Plan B Marketing Group, MBarefoot Marketing is comprised of solutions for small businesses and is centered mostly on helping entrepreneurs do their business better.

Also, there is another side of Plan B, Barefoot acknowledged, that is called Plan B Income Solutions, whereby she routinely helps individuals create secondary incomes while working from home on a part-time basis, mostly notably until their residual income will give way to them retiring from their respective jobs.

But wait. That isn’t all that this progressive and resourceful businesswoman does.

That’s because Barefoot is the co-owner of Media Magnets, a business that is centered largely on helping increase individuals and/or business owners’ presence via social media and other public platforms.

BIRTHED FOR SUCCESS — As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“It’s important to keep your message before your intended audience,” Barefoot said. “Not everyone understands the different algorithms associated with Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. We can help by boosting posts, likes, videos, and more, and by teaching people the importance of how to use the different social media platforms such as using hash tags on Instagram to get people engaged in your posts.”

In addition, Barefoot is heavily affiliated with NectarKast, whereby she serves as a Regional Dealer for this proximity marketing company.

“We offer 100 and 300 meters — that is the same as a football field or three football fields in all directions — beacons that help get your message out to where everyone’s eyes are on his or her cell phone,” Barefoot said. “A 40-character message is sent to a Bluetooth activated Android device, and once the message is delivered, the recipient can click on the notification and it will take them to a website, landing page, or even a personal social media page.

A TRUE TALENT — Besides being afforded the luxury of which displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

“These small devices are half the cost of other devices and in an independent study, it works more effectively and efficiently than our competitors devices. My partner and I started with this company because of the vision and the integrity of the developers/owners. “

Also, Barefoot is an Independent Consult for Scentsy.

“To think of the journey I have been on, it nearly wears me out to just think of it,” Barefoot said. “I worked predominantly in the medical field for 24 years with the last ten (years) or so in the mental health arena. The Lord knew what He was doing, placing me in the particular area at that particular time in my life.”

As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Such a trend, to her credit, has benefited her mightily.

How else to explain why she can, by all accounts, be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneurship?

“My resilience comes from the many trials and tribulations I have been through,” Barefoot said. “Many people would not have survived just a few of life’s travesties that have been placed in my way, but the obstacles only caused me to be stronger. God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers and, evidently, He thinks I am one tough soldier.”

HOLDING HER OWN — “Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

By and large, amongst the things about which she is especially appreciative is the fact that she is fulfilling the purpose for which God has created her.

How remarkably impressive for this, a well-respected businesswoman, who can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

“There is so much I love about my businesses,” Barefoot said. “I am thankful I can work from home and work into the night, because I am a night owl and definitely not a morning person. I prefer to get up late and work extra late into the night or early morning.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

“The diversity also allows me to leave home when I need to and travel if and when it is possible,” Barefoot continued. “I am a self-motivator and I work best alone or with a select few. I am not the ‘work in a cubicle from 9-to-5’ type person. I never have been and never liked that setting.”

Amongst the obvious reasons is that she’s functioning fervently in her element as a progressive, resourceful businesswoman.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats she customarily wears in the process.
