North Carolina businesswoman Gail Eaves thriving fervently as a licensed professional, national certified counselor


We then that are strong ought to bear the infirmities of the weak, and not to please ourselves. (Romans 15:1 KJV)


HEART OF GOLD 

DESTINY STEPS — Is it, by all accounts, because of Gail Eaves’ competitive nature through her profession that she has been afforded the golden opportunity to function mightily in her element as a credible licensed professional counselor for Brookdell & Beck Counseling Services.

Ever since Gail Eaves has become an accomplished businesswoman in her selected profession, she has gone to great lengths to enhance the divine purpose for which she was created.

It is a trend by which Eaves doesn’t in any way, shape or form take lightly.
Consider, for instance, how Eaves has appropriately found her niche in an ever-so-competitive psychology industry — most notably the mental health — that spans some 12 years.
“My competitive drive in life propelled me for my venture by encouraging me to study mental illness from a clinical platform and provide local services to our community,” Eaves told Making Headline News this week.

A STEP ABOVE THE REST — Amongst the reasons people who boast a need for counseling have entrusted Eaves to assist and educate them through with her wide range of knowledge is because she undoubtedly is armed with the credentials, which have enabled her to emerge as of the most productive efficient professional counselors in the Carolinas.

Located at 905 Irving Avenue in Eden, North Carolina — a rural town of roughly 15,527 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Brookdell & Beck Counseling Services is widely known for offering therapy services for adults, children, and elders, particularly in Eden and surrounding areas.

Interestingly, this company has emerged as unique one of its kind, in large part because it customarily provides efficient services to couples, families, groups, as well as individual sessions.

As far as it what refers to as its “demographic specialty,” this company accommodates people of various ethnicities, as well individuals with disabilities.

Eaves, 62, who also assumes the role as a national certified counselor, has become a fixture in her selected line of work, considering she currently owns a private practice in behavior health.


“I provide tools that educate and guide individuals with depression, anxiety, panic attacks, anger issues, grief, and relationship challenges,” Eaves said. “I provide behavioral health services to clients from six years old to 120 years old.”


To her credit, coupled with her immeasurable professional track record, some of Eaves’ clients have deemed it essential to travel from other states to solicit her services, a trend she fully welcomes and hopes will continue.

“I have clients that come from nearby states,” Eaves, a native of Reidsville, North Carolina, said. “Many clients drive more than 100 miles weekly to receive our services.”

Interestingly, Eaves emphasized that she thrives fervently, particularly as it pertains to helping clients discover their inner strengths, talents, not to mention assisting them with identifying ways to enjoy life, regardless of life’s circumstances.

Amongst the reasons people who boast a need for counseling have entrusted Eaves to assist and educate them through with her wide range of knowledge is because she undoubtedly is armed with the credentials, which have enabled her to emerge as of the most productive efficient professional counselors in the Carolinas.

A professional counseling stint that went into operations in 2014, Eaves holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice with a specialization in Community Study.

In addition, she has earned a Master of Science Degree in Mental Health Counseling and is currently enrolled in a doctoral program in its School of Psychology with a specialization in Addiction.

Eaves’ venture is a member of the Eden Chamber of Commerce.

“(That) is inspiring,” Eaves said of her personal mission through the services she provides.

All things considered, what it all boils down to is taking the power out of mental illness, Eaves acknowledged.

“(It’s about) restoring self-love, faith, and peace throughout communities,” she said. “I believe it is a spiritual requirement to rise and shine and bless others with our talents and gifts.”

Credit the divine purpose for which she was created as arguably the biggest reason why.

Mid-South entrepreneur Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture creating a national presence

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES CORAL HARRIS-THOMAS


Honey, let Coral Harris-Thomas tell ya…

“When I first put my garment on, I was waiting to see what it was gone do for me,” Harris-Thomas, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, said in a rave review of her products at https://snatchmenow.com/.  “It felt good, it looked good, and my stomach was flat. Oh, but when I looked in the mirror…I’m trying to tell you, I was amazed at how I had just dropped three dress sizes. My posture was straight, and when I walked, it felt as if the garment was carrying me.”

Some pretty remarkably compelling comments by an accomplished businesswoman, who has become a fixture for the internationally-acclaimed venture that is Snatch Me Now.

YOU GO GIRL!!! A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Harris will be hosting an event on October 6 at 12:30 p.m. CST, during which she will promote her products. This assembly will take at Home2 Suites by Hilton Memphis-Southaven, located at 6750 Southcrest Parkway in Southaven, Mississippi in the DeSoto Room.

Snatch Me Now’s featured product, at least at this particular time Harris-Thomas told Making Headline News this week, is the Rebirth Body Shapers.

“We also offer Coral’s Cosmetics, too,” said Harris-Thomas, introducing the product that bears her name.

A STEP ABOVE THE REST — A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Interestingly and much to her delight, it’s seems that Harris-Thomas was built to delve off into the world of entrepreneurship, in large part because, well, it’s in her bloodline.

“I am a fourth-generation entrepreneur, so I am competitive by nature, because I have been around business owners all of my life,” said Harris-Thomas, a doctoral candidate at Cambridge (Massachusetts) College, who also boasts a wealth of experience in the education sector.

Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

C’MON, Y’ALL, C’MON — What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“I like the fact that I am helping others the most (through) my business,” Harris-Thomas said. “When women put on the garment, their confidence increases. When the ladies get made up, they light up like Christmas trees.”

What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“My business caters to people of all ages,” Harris-Thomas said. “My daughter is 11 years old and she is my youngest client. Today, my oldest client is 81 years old.”

Talk about having a monumental impact, courtesy of a booming business that has allowed this progressive, thriving businesswoman to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably in Minnesota, Alabama, Texas and, of course, her native home state of Tennessee.

“I have been to a lot of places, because the makeup line division was started by my mother when I was five years old,” Harris-Thomas, the No. 1 sales distributor for the month of August for Rebirth Body Shapers, explained. “My mother was a traveling vendor, so I traveled across country with her every summer.”

Surely, it’s safe to assume that Harris-Thomas has gone to great lengths to ensure that her assortment of business ventures savor sustained success.

Just as her mother taught her years ago.

HEART OF GOLD — Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

“My mission is to snatch up ask many ladies as I can to help them enhance their natural beauty,” said Harris-Thomas whom, aside from her mother (the late Cora Barley Harris) was greatly inspired by Rebirths CEO Dorothy Cook to pursue her dreams as an entrepreneur.

“They are both strong black women that are great leaders,” Harris-Thomas said.

To her credit, Harris-Thomas is especially grateful of the notion that she’s afforded the notable task of instilling in her daughter the same life-enhancing qualities she acquired from her beloved mother.

So honey, let her tell ya…

“Women go through some much on a daily basis, so it is important to me to uplift as many women as I can on a daily basis,” Harris-Thomas said. “It makes me feel like I am walking in my purpose.”

Just as the late Cora Barley Harris had envisioned all along.

Former Arena Football star Johnny Loper a candidate in seven categories in DeSoto Times-Tribune’s Best 2017

There’s no other way to put it.

Johnny Loper has always been a team player.

AND THE WINNER IS — A native of Waynesboro, Mississippi and the owner of Jay Lo Fitness in Olive Branch, Mississippi, Johnny Loper’s notable entrepreneurship resume appropriately found its way on a much larger platform, considering he has been nominated as a finalist in seven categories in the upcoming “DeSoto Times-Tribune’s Best 2017” awards ceremony. A former Arena Football League star, Loper is pictured with his wife, Weslynne Loper.

Surely, he was a team player during his football playing days, most notably for Wayne County High, South Carolina State University, as well as during his stellar career in the Arena Football League.

To his distinctly unique credit, even after calling it a playing career, Loper has gone to great lengths to demonstrate the proverbial team player concept, especially as a thriving, progressive entrepreneur.

A native of Waynesboro, Mississippi and the owner of Jay Lo Fitness in Southaven, Mississippi, Loper’s notable entrepreneurship resume appropriately found its way on a much larger platform, considering he has been nominated as a finalist in seven categories in the upcoming “DeSoto Times-Tribune’s Best 2017” awards ceremony.

Voting for nominees began on December 11 and runs through January 11, 2018.

A competition that is comprised of approximately 200 categories, voters will be allowed to cast their ballots on an assortment of categories, most notably their favorites in food and drink, automotive, shopping, services, community, health, and beauty and fitness, among others. The votes will determine the best of the best in DeSoto County, the third-most populous county in Mississippi with a population of 161,252, according to the latest U. S. census.

VOTE HERE FOR JOHNNY LOPER, Y’ALL: http://desotosbest.com/best-of-desoto-times/

For Loper, 41, a fitness guru whose experience spans more than 20 years, he has been named a nominee in seven categories: Best Gym And Fitness Center, Best Place To Sweat, Best Personal Trainer, Best Zumba Class, Best Yoga Class (DwiPada Yoga), Best Spin Class, and Best Facebook Page.

ALL AMERICAN BUSINESS OWNER — For Loper, 41, a fitness guru whose experience spans more than 20 years, he has been named a nominee in seven categories: Best Gym And Fitness Center, Best Place To Sweat, Best Personal Trainer, Best Zumba Class, Best Yoga Class (DwiPada Yoga), Best Spin Class, and Best Facebook Page.

“This is not about me at all,” Loper, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked what’s so intriguing about his latest array of honors. “This is totally about the team of people that trust us to keep them inspired while keeping the gift of health affordable. I’m praying that the recognition we receive for being champions for our community inspire others to go after their passion with a purpose drive mindset.”

Located at 1310B Goodman Road Southaven, Mississippi, Jay Lo Fitness is widely known as a brand that demonstrates love, unity, diversity, opportunity and hope, Loper explained.

In addition, its fitness and nutrition entities are deemed a “small fraction” for what Jay Lo Fitness stands for. Interestingly, Loper’s venture offers fitness, nutrition, youth sports training, Zumba and dance, spin, yoga and motivational speaking seminars.

All things considered, Loper doesn’t away from the notion that his business would not have enjoyed sustained success if not for the valiant, unyielding support of his wife and featured team player, Weslynne Loper.

The couple has two children, both of whom are student athletes (Seven-year-old JT Loper and five-year-old Jalynne Loper).

“My wife’s support has been everything to our success,” Johnny Loper said. “This process has not been easy, and there have been a lot of sleepless nights. Our faith never wavered, and (it means a lot) to hear her say, ‘Just keep going, Johnny… ‘Do you believe in what you doing Johnny? Well Just Keep Going.’”

Long before he became an entrepreneurial success, Loper was a multi-sport athlete at Wayne County High, most notably in football, which ultimately led to him signing a National Letter of Intent to play at South Carolina State.

MAD SKILLS — Long before he became an entrepreneurial success, Loper was a multi-sport athlete at Wayne County High, most notably in football, which ultimately led to him signing a National Letter of Intent to play at South Carolina State University.

His collegiate stint was highlighted by him earning Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference All Conference honors as a kick and punt returner, as well as being named the team’s Most Valuable Player for his position three times.

For what it’s worth, Loper emphasized that his past athletic success, in some aspects, has brought about a solid competitive drive, or sorts, as a longtime and accomplished business owner.

“Being competitive in sports is a lot different than being competitive in business,” Loper said. “In my sports, it was just using my talents and gifts that I was given in order to get to a certain point in my life. In my business, it’s all about now fulfilling my purpose in life and that’s to serve and inspire others.

RETURNING THE FAVOR — To his credit, Loper not only has inspired countless individuals with whom he has crossed paths through his business but, for his immeasurable efforts, it seem they are destined to extend to him a vote of thanks — by way of the forthcoming “DeSoto Times-Tribune’s Best 2017.”

To his credit, Loper not only has inspired countless individuals with whom he has crossed paths through his business but, for his immeasurable efforts, it seems they are destined to extend to him a vote of thanks — by way of the forthcoming “DeSoto Times-Tribune’s Best 2017.”

“Being a leader in this community, it’s very important that we keep doing what we are doing, because the importance of fitness is being lost with the ‘I’ mentality,” said Loper, who has business-related event scheduled in Jackson, Mississippi on January 13. “With the help of social media, there are so many fitness experts, motivational speakers, and look at me…I’m fit (for those) type of trainers. I feel that the people that struggle with weight loss, eating disorders, low self-esteem, and comparison, leave most people feeling like failures. Therefore this person would rather not even try, because no one likes to feel defeated.”

By and large, through Jay Lo Fitness, everyone wins, Loper acknowledged.

“What I’m most grateful about today are all the people that have allowed me to continue building Jay Lo Fitness while at the same time being a husband and a hands-on dad with my kids,” Loper said.

Yep, there’s no other way to put it.

Johnny Loper has always been a team player.
