Florida gospel recording phenom ‘4G’ making remarkable strides as the face of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC


Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 NIV)


4-GOD BE THE GLORY

GLOBAL IMPACT — Widely known amongst his peers as “4G,” Jimmy Gathers, 44, is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Above far as the above Biblical passage goes, Jimmy Orlando Gathers, Jr. spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, he raps, too.
“Aside from being in the music industry, on a personal level, it’s more about my family’s legacy,” Gathers, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the awe-inspiring events that have greatly afforded him the golden opportunity to function in his element. “Let me elaborate.”
Alright, then.
Have at it.
“Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”
Given the immeasurable strides Gathers have made in recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

Widely known amongst his peers as “Jay Gathers” — which is accompanied by the nickname, “4G” — Gathers is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

Credit the fact that he’s steadfastly on fire for God as arguably the grandest reasons why.

Because, after all, even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.


“(I love) providing great music, great entertainment, and giving people the message of the gospel,” said 4G, a native of Apalachicola, Florida. “More importantly, it blesses me to see people’s lives changed, because they can relate to the transparency in my music.”


A 1993 graduate of Panama City’s Bay High School, 4G earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University. Prior to that, he was enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, where he earned General Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Fire Science, which ultimately gave way to his becoming a certified fire fighter.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — Even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.

While 4G is fully aware that knowledge is power, music has always been his primary passion.

In fact, 4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created.

How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with two-time Stellar award winner Canton Jones,” said 4G, calling off names of gospel celebs as if he’s handing out diplomas. “He’s actually featured on four projects off my newly released album entitled, ‘Unqualified.’ “I also have collaborations with Mr. Del (previously of Three Six Mafia) and Born Divine of the Wu Tang Family.”

Wait. There’s more.

“I also have projects produced by well- known producers who’ve produced for other mainstream artists such as Supa Cool — Kevin Gates, Gucci Mane, Shaquille O’Neal — and Lady Trauma (Missy Elliot),” 4G said.

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”

“I’ve appeared twice on Bobby Jones Presents in Nashville, appeared on America’s Got Anointing (The Word Network) in Atlanta, performed the last two years at showcases in Las Vegas during the Stellar Awards, was an opening act for Le’Andria Johnson in Charlotte, appeared on the front cover of Soul Central Magazine (March, 2019 Edition), the front cover of Gospel USA Magazine (October, 2019 Edition), won the 2019 Holy Hip-Hop artist of the Year award in North Carolina.”

Hold up. He’s still not finished disclosing of his laundry list of accolades.

4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created. How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

“I’ve been nominated for numerous other (awards) to include as the V.O.G.M.A., Steeple Awards, and Soul Central Awards,” said 4G, who has been the beneficiary of ongoing media coverage and exposure.

As for the upcoming New Year, 4G is overwhelmingly enthused, in large part because greater is on the way, he said.

“(The year) 2020 is looking very promising as I’m planning more musical events at major churches in bigger markets, radio interviews, recording more visuals and music videos, recording and releasing more new music, etc.,” 4G said.


HOLDIN’ IT DOWN 

For what it’s worth, 4G emphasized, among other things, that his primary objective is to glorify God through his musical gifts, all the while leaving a last impression as a result.

“As stated in Proverbs 13:22, a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous,” 4G said. “When my father died years ago, he didn’t leave anything behind financially that I — as his son — could be proud of. That feeling that I felt during that time in my life is one I never want my sons and daughters to feel. That is what propels me daily in my business venture.”

Eloquently stated by a giftedly talented child of God, whose spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, raps, too.

Given the immeasurable strides 4G have made in his recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

ARMY OF THE LORD — As Gore hinted, it was, by all accounts, because of her tenure in the military that essentially allowed her to draw close to God, a development that, much to her delight, drove her to the purpose for which she was created.

As for her competitive drive that has greatly enabled her to discover a greater version of herself, Gore credits her awe-inspiring journey as a disabled Army veteran, a stint that spans nearly two decades.

“I have always been competitive through my years of service,” Gore explained. “And so as I became closer to God, I found out what my true calling was — using the three steps (assist servant leaders to discover their purpose, exercise their power, and walk by faith to live and abundant life).

BEACON OF LIGHT — “I love being able to serve people, transform lives, and reach my destiny while helping others do the same,” Gore said of a rising organization that mostly serves individuals ranging in ages 25-to-55.

“God used the Army as a training ground for me to develop as a servant leader, because he was birthing me for such a time as this,” Gore said. “If I could teach, train, and motivate soldiers, God knew I would be ready for His people. So here I am, ready to motivate, inspire and encourage servant leaders to reach their destiny.”


And boy is she putting forth a valiant effort in the process, all the while God continues to strategically enlarge her territory, in large part because of her steadfast act of obedience.

Georgia single mother of three, Kenyatta Bell confident ‘justice will be served’ amid home-buying deal gone bad


Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you; But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. (1 Peter 4:12-13 NIV)


THIS, TOO, SHALL PASS

BUT GOD — For Kenyatta Bell and her family, it seemed that buying a home by Freddie Mac had been a mostly discomforting and disheartening experience, to say the least. In 2018, Bell was informed that her home was sold to her illegally through Freddie Mac.

Terry Jermaine Compton and Kenyatta Nichelle Bell enjoyed a mostly healthy marriage, a union that lasted nearly two decades — 19 years and two days to put it more precisely.

Even when the coupled deemed it essential to go their separate ways, amongst the things Terry and Kenyatta agreed is that they wanted what was best for their children, particularly a safe and comfortable place to call home.
“I was so excited for getting my dream home for Mother’s Day from Terry,” Bell, during a recent exclusive interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the joy and splendor that essentially had overtaken her family when the Comptons moved into their 2,700-square-feet dream home years before the untimely passing of her former husband at the age of 44.
While savoring their home at 20 Fairway Oaks in suburban Waverly, Georgia undoubtedly was a dream come true Bell and her children, such an awe-inspiring fantasy was all but shattered amid an unlikely discovery, one that, by all accounts, essentially haunts Bell and Co. to this day.
While savoring their home at 20 Fairway Oaks in suburban Waverly, Georgia undoubtedly was a dream come true Bell and her children, such an awe-inspiring fantasy was all but shattered amid an unlikely discovery, one that, by all accounts, essentially haunts Bell and Co. to this day.

In 2018, Bell was informed that her home was sold to her illegally by Freddie Mac.

A government-owned corporation that buys mortgages and packages them into mortgage-backed securities, Freddie Mac’s official title is the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (or FHLMC). According to a report at https://www.thebalance.com/what-is-freddie-mac-3305985, banks typically use the funds received from Freddie Mac to make new loans to homebuyers.

As a result, that essentially boosts the housing market and allows more Americans to become homeowners.

WE ARE FAMILY — “I was so excited for getting my dream home for Mother’s Day from Terry,” Bell, during a recent exclusive interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling the joy and splendor that essentially had overtaken her family when they moved into their 2,700 square feet dream home years before the untimely passing of her former husband, Terry Jermaine Compton (far right in image) at the age of 44.

Generally, the report cites, FHLMC gives banks the ability to create 30-year mortgages, and without Freddie Mac, the banks would have to keep the loans on their books for 30 years, thus tying up too much money — something mortgage experts say is “too risky.”

Bell and her then-husband purchased their home in May 2011 and were represented by longtime licensed realtor Kimberly Watson of Magnolia Realty, which is owned by Cecily Hill.

“We purchased our home from Freddie Mac, which was represented by a local realtor…whom I cannot recall,” Bell said.

The closing attorney for the home was former attorney and current judge, Robert Sweat, and the home was financed by Silverton Mortgage, which sold to BB&T and is considered guaranteed by the VA, Bell said.


‘IT’S ABOVE ME NOW’

Asked what was her initial reaction upon learning that a certificate of occupancy never emerged, Bell said: “I didn’t understand how this could happen to us, because we hired professionals. Our real estate company was owned by a previous state representative.

“We had all of these licensed and/or licensed professionals representing our family in the purchased of our home which was not inspected, did not have a final inspection, did not and currently doesn’t have a certificate of occupancy, has always and remains to be unlivable, and has been and currently illegal to live in,” Bell acknowledged.

For Bell and her family, it seemed that buying a home through Freddie Mac had become a mostly discomforting and disheartening experience, to say the least.

“Freddie Mac sold us the home without a certificate of occupancy and didn’t tell us,” Bell told MHN. “To make it worse, they are trying to hide behind (this ordeal), but (they’ve) put my family’s lives in danger for seven years.”

According to Bell, Heritage Bank officials executed the construction loan and that the Bank of Georgia in Augusta was the first lending institution that was responsible for having originated the mortgage without a certificate of occupancy.

As Bell explained, the rash of issues surrounding her home purchase was initiated by Heritage Bank, located at 392 Charlie Smith Sr. Highway in nearby St Mary’s, Georgia.

According to Bell, Heritage Bank officials executed the construction loan and that the Bank of Georgia in Augusta was the first lending institution that was responsible for having originated the mortgage without a certificate of occupancy.

Bell recently met with John Myers, an attorney for Camden County, about the ongoing issues surrounding her home. To no avail, she senses that things are at a constant standstill.

Calls by Making Headline News to Myers on Monday and late last week weren’t immediately returned.

As if the ongoing and seemingly insurmountable problems surrounding the certificate of occupancy weren’t enough to frustrate Bell and her family, they began to discover a variety of damages inside of their residence.

As if the ongoing and seemingly insurmountable problems surrounding the certificate of occupancy weren’t enough to frustrate Bell and her family, they subsequently began to discover a variety of damages inside of their residence.

“Actually, we couldn’t see damages, but we started experiencing problems with the HVAC unit and other small things within a few months, but we thought it was because no one had ever lived there,” Bell said.

All things considered, the entire matter surrounding Bell’s home purchase was a bad deal that apparently had become worse.

Asked what was her initial reaction upon learning that a certificate of occupancy never emerged, Bell said: “I didn’t understand how this could happen to us, because we hired professionals. Our real estate company was owned by a previous state representative.


“Our closing attorney is now the probate judge,” Bell continued. “Our lender had the inspection completed and our loan is a VA loan. After all we’ve been through and now we can’t live in our home. I began begging for help, but I had to research and get knowledge and understanding myself.”


While Bell believes that something will ultimately be done about an ordeal that resulted in her and having her family having to live at a local hotel and then with her “spiritual sister,”  Gina Fernandez Beverly, this accomplished Georgia businesswoman is confident “justice will be served” and that she will eventually reap some much-anticipated beauty for all of her ashes.

“I want to bring awareness to what happened to our family, but I also want to encourage people to trust God, keep the faith, and be strong no matter what their situation looks like,” said Bell, whose has two sons, both of whom are college football players. “My daughter was writing her book while our family was going through this situation and my boys were fighting through producing on the field and all three in the (college) classroom. During this storm is when Epic Life was birthed.”

During this storm is when Epic Life was birthed.”

A native of Gay, Georgia, Bell is the catalyst for the Epic Management Group, an Atlanta-area ministry that was spearheaded on an area radio station and is aired by way of a slew of airwaves.

Widely regarded as Epic Life Ministry, this company has also launched a social media teaching — a segment that’s collectively conducted by Epic Life staffers: Gina Beverly, Danielle Sunderhouse and Corey Watts — whereby it has garnered a global audience.

Interestingly, Epic Management Group has partnered with St. Marys radio station to host an array of what company officials describe as “epic life experiences,” most notably for middle and high school students.

Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

Tampa businesswoman Jenelle Harris’ She EXIST organization steadily attracting more of a national presence

EXISTING WITH A PURPOSE

MISSION UNFOLDING — A Tampa, Florida-based mental health and business corporation, Jenelle Harris’ She EXIST’s mission is centered largely on ministering on what Harris refers to as “The Power of Her Testimony.”

DALLAS — Jenelle Harris would be the first to admit that she undoubtedly has a heart for women of various walks of life.

So much, in fact, that she’s established a notable platform that is centered largely on helping women to discover the best version of themselves.

“(I love) being able to provide a platform for other women’s accomplishment, partnering with other leaders and sharing some amazing testimonies and challenges in life,” Harris told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “And with doing this, we will be able to create a team that will help others with their goals. I love being a leader, because it also shares the values of authenticity and soul living.”

To her credit, Harris’ keen leadership skills have been put in display, particularly through her She EXIST organization.

A Tampa, Florida-based mental health and business corporation, She EXIST’s mission is centered largely on ministering on what Harris refers to as “The Power of Her Testimony.”

As Harris eloquently explains, there are a variety of reasons for creating an organization that is starting to attract more of a national presence.

Harris is also is the mastermind behind newly-produced CD entitled, “She EXIST,” a project she co-produced with Moses The Mantra and is powered by BlackPeri LLC.


“I think it is important to be an asset to your community, your society, and the work place,” said Harris, when asked why it is imperative to esteem others highly than herself. “I think teaching and educating positivity is always needed. We’ve heard the saying, ‘It takes a village to raise kids and it will take a team to build teams.’”


Much Harris’ to delight, her organization is steadily expanding, meaning it’s safe to assume that She EXIST’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“(It) continues to grow, as those who are broken find a sense of peace while healing and telling their story,” Harris said.

CHECK OUT JENELLE’S CD

Interestingly, Harris’ She EXIST is designed specifically as a speaking platform, of sorts, most notably for women to share their stories with other women or, as she acknowledges, “to encourage and uplift those who are broken and have given up on life.”

“Throughout these sessions, you can feel the positive vibes and energy from the women who present telling the story,” Harris said.

What’s even more astounding for Harris — an accomplished marketing consulting and motivational speaker — is that her credible organization will be hosting what is known as the “Expanding Your Territory” event on June 22 in Raleigh, North Carolina.

Powered by She EXIST, this nationally-acclaimed networking conference will take place at the Raleigh Elks Lodge No. 735, located at 5538 Lead Mine Road.

Tickets for this event can be purchased at https://sheexist.org/.

A native of Brooklyn, New York, Harris is an accomplished author, who has been featured in the book entitled, “Diamonds In The Rough: A Woman’s Guide To Living An Empowered Life.”

A book that’s written by Charmaine Powell, “Diamonds In The Rough: A Woman’s Guide To Living An Empowered Life” will be available soon at Amazon.com.

As for She EXIST, Harris’ organization accommodates mostly individuals and groups ranging in ages 16 to 75.

“The tool that I have is for everyone and this is the authenticity that I admire,” Harris said. “Everyone needs leadership and everyone needs empowerment, spiritual awareness, and spirituality intelligence.

“My goal is to inspire everyone with connecting to their inner selves, because oftentimes, we are connecting to a bill, to a toxic relationship, or to a bad environment,” Harris continued, adding that arguably her greatest inspirations are globally-acclaimed ministers Sheryl Brady, Bishop T. D. Jakes, and Bishop Duncan Williams, as well as her beloved grandmother. “When you begin to live from your soul daily, you will begin to detach from negativity and start to condition your mind with what makes sense. Your visibility will be clear your reaction will be a sense of action to make a change.”

Besides her upcoming event in June, Harris — whose work-related experience spans more than 17 years — is scheduled to appear on “I Am Enough” talk show that’s hosted by Wanda D. Hollis April 21. In addition, she will be featured in the April issue of Maline Pride’s Black Wall Street magazine.

“I started as a young girl at the age of 17, working as a HHA, helping elders in their homes…one-one-one care, and that inspired me to do more and to be more,” Harris said. “I was also working as a security guard, doing a grave yard shift in the projects in Harlem with no reservations going back to a city called Brooklyn.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose, functioning mightily in her element.

With God, her Helper, leading the way.

“I have seen women leave abusive relationships, close and start businesses, and become mentors to others, because of my coaching or attending a retreat I have hosted.”

That’s because she’s widely known as a thriving, progressive, resourceful businesswoman, who didn’t just discover and wrote down her life-enhancing vision some seven years ago.

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.

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

“(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.

Recent NFL Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis amongst Florida businessman Dr. Casuel Pitts’ grandest supporters

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DR. CASUEL PITTS  


For Dr. Casuel Pitts, it was undoubtedly the most memorable 500 bucks someone had ever given him in his entire life.

“When I was 11 years old, my father put $500 in my hand for work that I did for his business,” Dr. Pitts recalled. “His entrepreneurship (endeavor) is what drove me to be my own boss.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR — A native of Kankakee, Illinois who was raised mostly in Brooklyn, New York, DrCasuel Pitts, 33, is owner and chief executive officer of Ultimate Discount Services INC., an Orlando, Florida-based company that was created with the everyday consumer in mind, particularly with regards to focusing on what is known as everyday unforeseen incidents that many most likely don’t plan for, according to detailed breakdown Dr. Pitts’ venture at https://udsinc.us/.

And just like that, it was — much to the delight of Dr. Pitts — a nice little stash of cash that would essentially change his life forever.

That’s because after more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

ALL STAR LINEUP — A company that went into full operations four years ago, Ultimate Discount Services INC. is widely known for accommodating consumers with things such as car accidents, dropped cell phones, traffic violations, and medical visits, just to name few.

Former NFL star and recent Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis of Baltimore Ravens is the company’s President.

And now for this extremely vital disclaimer.

DAD KNOWS BEST — After more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

“Now, let’s clear up one major misconception. We are not insurance,” said a spokesperson for Ultimate Discount Services (or USD). “We offer a unique membership platform comprised of 16 powerful services that give you that extra piece of mind when life unexpectedly happens and you’re not financially in a place to accommodate certain situations.”

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Dr. Pitts emphasized that USD headlines one of his companies.

“The core of UDS is reimbursements,” Dr. Pitts explained. “Our goal is to help people save money while educating them on how important credit, investments, and entrepreneurship are. It is important for consumers to realize that UDS is not insurance and, although we have similarities, our focus is to make sure reimbursements are received on things you cannot control.”

Interestingly, this notable businessman raises questions many consumers customarily pose daily.

“Ask yourself: When was the last time you or someone you know damaged a cell phone?” Dr. Pitts said. “What about the last time you or someone you know received some type of traffic ticket? What about medical, dental, and vision co-pays? These are just a few things that we reimburse on.”

An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

MORE THAN QUALIFIED — Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

Interestingly, Dr. Pitts’ company accommodates people nationwide and, according to him, USD is steadfastly devising ways to become a globally-acclaimed venture by the year 2020.

Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

“My personal mission for this business is what God hires me to do and that’s to make this brand, Ultimate Discount Services INC, a ministry and to help as many people as I can save money, build credit and invest smarter,” said Dr. Pitts, adding that aside from God, his grandest inspirations are his wife, Lewis, as well as the marketing consultants who play a major roll with helping build his brand.

GIVING BACK BIG TIME — An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

“I love God. I love people. I promote positive energy only,” Dr. Pitts continued. “My excitement about knowledge is similar to a kid in the candy store, and I always made myself accessible to it. The passion that I carry about business is like no other. I tend to get a bit animated and engulfed in a debate or conversation that develops on how to start, structure, or build a business. We as the human race lack more knowledge than we are aware of, and that’s why I feel that God is putting me in the position to mold me in order to help organize that category, but that is another story.”

What a difference 500 bucks have made.

U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant Sabrina Dennard making global strides as an International Empowerment Speaker

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SABRINA DENNARD 


Sabrina Dennard isn’t just a businesswoman whose primary objective includes, among other things, to have a national impact.

Rather, amongst her notable objectives to have more of an international presence.

An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

“God gave me everything within to speak and create life into my business and my clients,” Dennard, 46, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining what she loves mostly about her business  venture.

MAKING GLOBAL NOISE — An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Sabrina Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

That, after all, is amongst the reasons Dennard is thoroughly committed to having a global impact as a progressive and thriving businesswoman.

“(My business is centered on) creating an outlet to true freedom for women, men children of all nations regardless of race, color, creed, faith, or religion through words and thought transformation,” Dennard said. “There are so many supposed ways out there to obtaining desires, dreams, and goals, but none of them are truly telling the secret to success. They get us to a point and that’s it. I actually have the proven method to achieving it all.”

IMPRESSIVE INDEED — What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

For Dennard, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that such a proven method has surfaced with a cost.

“Continued failure, hurt, pain, my desire to see my parents’ and children’s dreams come true was and still is my drive,” said Dennard, explaining how her competitive drive in life has fueled her desire to jumpstart her endeavor. “To see so many nations in turmoil because of limited access to reach and achieve their dreams is my drive. My passion for people is my constant drive.”

As for her personal mission for functioning in the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

GOD’S PLAN — As for her personal mission for functioning the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

An endeavor that caters mostly to individuals ranging in ages five years to  90 — “and up,” she said — Dennard’s empowerment group has allowed her to put her immeasurable leadership skills on display in a variety of establishments around the global, most notably in Iraq, where she’s presently under contract, which has enabled her to be what she deems a “constant encouragement” to the U.S. military soldiers during their deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Kuwait.

“I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

As for the sustained success through her business venture, Dennard would be remiss if she did not give credit to her late father, Artist Ernest Dennard Sr., who was once commissioned by former President Jimmy Carter to embellish the walls of The Rural Georgia Telephone Museum with a mural of his art in Plains, Georgia.  Also, her mother, Etheron Dennard, as well as her grandmother, Theron Tolbert-Jones, has had massive impacts on helping her dreams to become a reality.

A globally-acclaimed reality, that is.

“They always believed I would do great things in this world,” Dennard said of those who make up her solid support system. “I would say the people in power positions I admire are Condoleezza Rice, Francis Berwick, Ana Botin, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Carter, Warren Buffett, Harriet Tubman, Michelle and Barack Obama.”

UK BOUND? “I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

Armed with more than a decade of experience in this ever-so-competitive empowerment industry, Dennard has grasped a thorough concept of why God has strategically chosen her to empower the massive for such a time as now.

“That is the reason we are all here,” said Dennard, adding that she’s presently working on producing a short film (called “Evening Street”) for her awe-inspiring book entitled, “Extra, Extra Read All About It: Evening Street, The Beginning.”

Dennard is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Extra, Extra Read All About It: Evening Street, The Beginning.”

“The universe is one tied to multiverses…a tree in which we all are branches, extending in different directions, but we all represent the beauty of this tree in various faiths, beliefs, and opinions. We can and should embrace and empower each other.”

Something by which she’s executes daily.

All around the globe.
