Ohio businesswoman Roselinde Ngozi creating a global buzz as an empowerment extraordinaire

Although there is such a thing as a competitive drive, Roselinde Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s customarily ignores it.

After all, as far as she’s concerned, that isn’t merely a bad thing.

“I ignore life’s competitive drive. It can be distracting,” Ngozi told Making Headline News this week. “Instead, I focus on creating, not competition…creativity.”


RAISING THE BAR 

PURE CLASS — A gifted and notable speaker whose craft caters mainly to people ranging in ages 28 to 52  — to those who have experienced divorce, bad break ups, or romantic pains, Roselinde Ngozi acknowledges — this Ohio businesswoman’s eloquent voice is steadily attracting more of a global presence.

Speaking of creativity, Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s also overwhelmingly creative, most notably as a women empowerment speaker, as well as an accomplished recording artist.

A Columbus, Ohio businesswoman, Ngozi is the mastermind the forthcoming single entitled, “Girl Gotta Grow” or #GGG, a hit that will be officially released in the coming days, the Nigerian native announced earlier this week.

“Although life and business are highly competitive, I do my best not to get entangled with competing,” Ngozi said. “I focus inwardly and upward to avoid being distracted by life’s competitive drive. I like to win, though winning to me is doing my best, giving my best, and mastering my best.”

MASSIVE IMPACT — Ngozi’s reputation is such that she’s also overwhelmingly creative, most notably as a women empowerment speaker, as well as an accomplished recording artist.

For Ngozi, 39, she certainly has gone to great lengths to put forth a masterful, immeasurable display, particularly with regards to establishing creativity through her brand which, in essence, has set her apart from other businesswomen who engage in a similar line of work.

For what it’s worth, though, she credits much of her sustained success to the sometimes challenging “process,” in large part because she’s knows full well that in order to achieve greatness, one must trust the dreaded process.


“What I like most about being in business is the process. The work it takes to become an authentic brand inward and (outward). I enjoy the results…to see women engaged in their healing, reminding them of their power and willingness and readiness to take action to become better.” — Roselinde Ngozi

That, to her credit, is especially vital, considering many of Ngozi’s peers sense that her best and brightest days in her selected profession are well ahead of her.

“My personal mission is to help women heal,” Ngozi says without hesitation. “Women are powerful beings. I believe when a woman heals a nation rises. My expertise is healing and growth management.”

GLOBAL PRESENCE — An empowerment speaking career that spans 15 years, Ngozi’s credibility has soared in recent years, courtesy of her regular appearances by way of international broadcasting, radio interviews, and social media.

And then there is her featured message, one Ngozi has adopted as her own, thus applied to her immeasurable movement in the process.

“My message is to call out the victim mentality and challenge women to take responsibility and action in three fundamental areas: emotions, relationship, and finance,” Ngozi said.

An empowerment speaking career that spans 15 years, Ngozi’s credibility has soared in recent years, courtesy of her regular appearances by way of international broadcasting, radio interviews, and social media.

BLAZING HIT — A Columbus, Ohio businesswoman, Ngozi is the mastermind the forthcoming single entitled, “Girl Gotta Grow” or #GGG, a hit that is will be officially released in the coming days, the  Nigerian native announced earlier this week.

“It’s imperative personally to be sure I break the cycle of my mother’s brokenness in order to protect my daughter’s innocence,” Ngozi said. “I am a Nigerian woman, raised in America. I have searched for my Nigerian father — just found him — and is on my way back to reunite with (him). This is significant, because I am the first born daughter to an IGBO (one of the largest ethnic groups in Africa). man. He is the elder of the village, honorary chieftain and a  Bishop.”

That Ngozi is preparing to return to her native establishment is a “huge deal,” she said, largely because connecting with her father is, in many aspects, synonymous to her quest to having connected with her God-given purpose.

VALIANT LEADERSHIP — “My personal mission is to help women heal,” Ngozi says without hesitation. “Women are powerful beings. I believe when a woman heals a nation rises. My expertise is healing and growth management.”

“As a first-born daughter, (my) story is significant, because finding my father was a part of my personal healing management plan, which is what I share and present to women in workshops and as a keynote speaker.”

Eloquently stated by this progressive, thriving businesswoman, whose reputation is such that she customarily ignores life’s competitive drive.

That, after all, that isn’t merely a bad thing.

South Carolina author Cherell Evans Latimer’s books empowering women to overpower domestic violence


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


IN A GOOD PLACE

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — A book that Cherell Evans Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

Cherell Evans Latimer doesn’t shy away from the notion that she has a spiritual place.

As far as she’s concerned, she’s destined to go to great lengths to protect it all cost.

Consider, for instance, how Latimer’s proverbial spiritual place was essentially challenged, particularly during a time in which God was strategically positioning her to engage in a life-changing assignment.

As Latimer recalled, it all unfolded about a year or so ago.

“(In) January of 2018, I was focusing on my relationship with God more and more,” Latimer told Making Headline News this week. “I couldn’t find any books that interest me. I would usually read paranormal fictions, but they were disrupting my spiritual place.”

Ahhh…


PURCHASE CHERELL’S BOOKS HERE: https://acepublishing.org/

GOD’S PLAN — A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

So that is when Latimer had begun to witness her life’s much-anticipated turning point, one that had ultimately catapulted her to what undoubtedly has become a ceremoniously chapter in the process.

“When I searched for Christian fiction (books), I didn’t find anything that would keep me interested, so God gave me this story line,” Latimer said.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

FOR STARTERS — A businesswoman who works primarily from home as the owner of a health and wellness online shopping venture, Latimer also authored “The Wrong Kind Of Love: Defined By God,” a book that recalls what this writer describes as her “personal story and experience with domestic violence.” That book was published June 2017.

And just like that, Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months removed since it was officially published.

A book that Latimer needed approximately six months to compose, this Greenville, South Carolina-based author deemed it essential to assemble “Castdown: God Remembers You” in large part because, according to her, we all have either met someone or have been in some form of domestic violence relationship.

And here’s the real shocker that’s essentially crippling the modern-day church, according to this brilliant writer:


“It’s more stressful, it seems, for the married Christians,” Latimer said of the dreaded trend that is domestic violence. “Especially if you’re a pastor, deacon, or community leader. People that are well known are held to a higher standard and it would be world news if these private lives were exposed. I wanted to show people that God still hears and remembers you.  You may not see it, but He is working on your behalf.”


A native of Muskegon Heights, Michigan — a rural establishment that rest in Muskegon County and is comprised of roughly 10,856 residents, according to the latest U. S. census — Latimer’s initial plan was to begin writing “Castdown: God Remembers You” at the beginning of last year, but the routine plans surrounding her wedding had caused a three-month delay.

VISION UNFOLDING — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Latimer, a domestic violence survivor, eloquently said, “That God is real. His angels are real and there is life after domestic violence. My goal is to reach those that won’t go to church, but still love a good read…those that believe in God, but are still stuck in the world’s way of living. God can fix any mess you may be in.”

However, once she commenced to constructing a book that figures to impact countless of lives throughout the Body of Christ and can be purchased at https://acepublishing.org/, she was reminded, among other things, that God had essentially singled her out to write a book for such a critical time as now.

Now with “Castdown: God Remembers You” presently on the market, Latimer has announced that other books are forthcoming, most notably “Castdown 2: God Is Pleased,” which is projected to hit the market this summer.


WOMAN OF PURPOSE 

ARRANGED AND APPOINTED BY GOD — Latimer had eventually emerged as the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Castdown: God Remembers You,” her spiritually-enhancing, thought-provoking project that is somewhere in the neighborhood of three months since it was officially published.

To her credit, she’s become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the release of her latest book.

“(Check out the) reviews from amazon,” said Latimer, who has already taken part in a few book signings since the release of her latest written document. “(People say it is) easy read and the characters you care about. I love the intertwining of the Word with the storyline and characters, and (people are) looking forward to the next book. It’s a great book for women in similar situations.”

Because after all, our spiritual place somewhat by which we must protect at all cost.

The rich history surrounding The Robinson Farmland: What you need to know


THE LEGACY CONTINUES…

PASSING THE TORCH — For what it’s worth, Gerone Robinson’s grandparents, the late John T. Robinson Sr. (aka J.T. Robinson) and his wife, Vashti Robinson, instilled in him — and the rest of his family — a slew of lessons that would greatly enhance and add value to their lives. Amongst the pertinent lessons Robinson and Co. weren’t taught: how to assume responsibility as resourceful businessmen and businesswomen.

For what it’s worth, Gerone Robinson’s grandparents instilled in him — and the rest of his family — a slew of lessons that would greatly enhance and add value to their lives.

Amongst the pertinent lessons Robinson and Co. weren’t taught: how to assume responsibility as resourceful businessmen and businesswomen.

“Before we headed back home to California, while at the gas station as we said our goodbyes, my dad hugged me and at that time,” Robinson, during an interview from California this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the disheartening, emotionally-driven developments surrounding his father, who apparently was on the brink of death. “I started crying, because I had a gut feeling that I would not see my father anymore.”

SHOW ME THE LANDMARK 

HERE IT IS — As Robinson appropriately explained, it is, by all accounts, a massive, monumental challenge, one he and the rest of the family have dubbed the Background Of The Robinson Farmland, which is housed in Dunklin County, Missouri, a rural establishment that is located in the historic Bootheel of the state, a town that is comprised of roughly 31,953 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.
As it turned out, that was the final time that Robinson had witnessed his father alive. But not before he was given some advice that would change the overall landscape of his life — as well as the lives of the rest of his family.

“He whispered in my ear, ‘You’re my gift, Fix what I have broken,’” Robinson said. “I didn’t know how bad things were until my father passed in June 2014.”

Since his father’s demise, Robinson and his family have been thrust in a fold that includes, among other things, collectively carrying the mantle handed down to them by his beloved father.

During a recent exclusive interview with MHN, Robinson explained at length a somewhat challenging and hurdle for which he and his family have been left to clear.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

As Robinson appropriately explained, it is, by all accounts, a massive, monumental challenge, one he and the rest of the family have dubbed the Background Of The Robinson Farmland, which is housed in Dunklin County, Missouri, a rural establishment that is located in the historic Bootheel of the state, a town that is comprised of roughly 31,953 residents, according to the latest U. S. census.

As Robinson told to Making Headline News, here is a thorough overview of the Background Of The Robinson Farmland.

 

Our farmland legal description: The East 40 acres of that part of the West half of the Northeast Quarter, lying North of Drainage Ditch No. 6, also known as Belfountain Ditch, of Section 21, Township 16 North, Range 10 East of the Fifth Principal Meridian, Dunklin County Missouri, belonging to our late grandparents, John T. Robinson Sr. (aka J.T. Robinson) and his wife, Vashti Robinson. My grandmother Vashti Robinson passed on April 25, 1979, while married to my grandfather J.T. Robinson Sr.

My grandfather began renting his farmland in the early 1970’s until his death on January 10, 1991. After the passing of my grandfather, his children became the heirs of the farmland. There was very little communication between my father, the late Robert Lee Robinson Sr., and his siblings after the passing of my grandfather. My father began overseeing the farmland from 1991 until his passing in June 2014.

In early 2014, prior to my father’s passing, I received a phone call from my father. He asked if me and my brother, Edwin, could come to Kansas City so he could take us to learn about the farmland, because he was getting older.


“At the time, me and my brother didn’t know our father had terminal cancer. My nephew, Robert Burton, my brother Edwin, and myself went to Kansas City. Once we arrived in Kansas City, while we was at our hotel with my father, I asked my father why isn’t the whole family not involved with what is going on with the land.” — Gerone Robinson 


My father explained the family was apart, because of a bad decision that he had made many years ago (he didn’t go into detail about what he had done).

During our stay in Kansas City, our father drove me, my brother, Edwin and my nephew Robert to visit our land in Dunklin County. Once we arrived at our farmland, we began taking pictures of the land and the church that belonged to our late grandparents, J.T. and Vashti Robinson.

Before we headed back home to California, while at the gas station as we said our goodbyes my dad hugged me and at that time I started crying because I had a gut feeling that I would not see my father anymore. He whispered in my ear, “You’re my gift. Fix what I have broken.” I didn’t know how bad things was until my father passed in June 2014.

When I got back from Kansas City, me and my brother Edwin spoke with the rest of our siblings (Robert Jr., Kim, Renell, Roxanne, Lugene, Kerry Wayne, and Uliria) about the mission our father discussed with us.

This is when my journey began

First, I went to my auntie to try and get some history from her about the farmland, and it was at that time I realized that whatever bad decision my father had made was taken out on his children.

I wanted to get my auntie’s blessing; unfortunately, my auntie refused to talk to me about the land. As I tried to interview family, all the doors were shut except one. I was given a contact number, which belonged to my cousin, Vashti, whom I met for the first time in 2015. I began explaining to my cousin what my goal was and several hours turned into days of communication.

For a brief moment, I found relief, because I had a connection with a family member who was going through a journey as well. Once my cousin, Vahsti, connected me with my uncle, Jehu (whom I hadn’t spoken to in decades), we began talking and catching up on lost time. I explained to my uncle Jehu about my journey to fix what my dad had broken and try to bring our family together. Afterwards, I asked him for his blessing. My uncle, Jehu, gave me his blessing and he said if I need him for anything, don’t hesitate to contact him.

It was a long journey, and now four years later, my mission is almost complete with the help of family…Especially, my mother (Lugene Sr), who is the backbone to our family, and who inspired me to never give up no matter what the situation is. Thank you mama! Last but not least, to my soulmate Floria (aka Juice) who did relentless research. Thank you! — Gerone Robinson

Dallas/Fort Worth cosmetologist Reneé Heard displaying her immeasurable gifts as a passionate hairstylist


HAVEN’T Y’ALL HEARD? 

SMILE OF VICTORY — A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Reneé Monique Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

DALLAS — Sometime during the 8 o’clock hour Monday morning, Reneé Monique Heard arrived at Paul Mitchell The School in nearby Arlington, Texas, an institution that’s widely known for preparing its students — or “future professionals,” as they call them — for successful careers in the beauty industry.

Exemplifying such intensity for what she’s been blessed to do on the regular, Heard found her way to campus, displaying her customary spirited disposition.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Although Heard’s decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

If nothing else, all Heard has done since bolting college prematurely was discover the purpose for which she was created.

LEAST SHE FORGET — “I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

A native of Kansas City, Kansas, Heard is an accomplished Dallas/Fort Worth-area hair stylist, who works as a full-time cosmetologist.

“I am 34 years of age and very passionate about my craft,” Heard says without hesitation.

As Heard explained, her passion for helping clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

REROUTING — Although Heard decision to study Criminal Justice was short-lived — “I quit after the third semester,” she recalls — never did she lie dormant in her ability to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.

“I would say that growing up, I’ve always had a passion for (doing) hair,” Heard told Making Headline News this week. “It started when I was about 10. I wanted my hair braided so bad. My grandparents were raising me and they didn’t have the money at the time.”

Although her grandparents didn’t have the funds to pay for her to get the hairstyle she so desperately wanted, Heard did what any opportunistic youngster is supposed to do.

She began to think outside the box and devised her own way to make it happen.

To her credit, she’s been making it happen ever since, all the while finding her niche as a resourceful hairstylist in the process.


SKILLZ ON FLEEK 

BACK WHERE IT ALL STARTED — As Heard explained, her passion for helping her clients look their best dates back to her childhood days of growing up in Kansas.

“I took the few dollars I had and went to the hair store and got some hair, and that’s when my experimenting started,” said Heard, explaining how she had initially discovered her craft for braiding her. “I braided my own hair and I did really well.”

Much to her delight, it wasn’t long thereafter that Heard’s immeasurable hair-styling gifts had become the talk of the town.

“Then my aunt came (and then) I started doing my cousins’ hair and then others,” Heard said. “That’s where I learned and that’s when I knew that I was going to be in this profession. And then along the way my passion left.”

Amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

“Throughout life, no matter where I went, (my desire to do) hair always followed me,” Heard said. “I moved to Arizona, back home (to Kansas), and then Texas. I seemed to always run from it…avoiding my calling and ignoring what God had for me. I knew I was destined to do something else besides hair. I just knew it. No matter what road I took in trying to pursue something else, I would always run into this brick wall…and hard too.”

At some point doing her sometimes rocky journey, when Heard had finally elected to stop running from that which God called her to do, that is when her Creator began to enlarge her territory, thus catapult to her divine destiny for such a time as now.

Having admittedly to have “avoiding my calling,” it seemed that everywhere Heard had gone, her expertise essentially had come running after her.

Never mind that while finding her way in this thing called life, she had to settle for working in a call center, during which she recalled having become “completely miserable and irritated with the fact that I have this amazing talent I’m working at it every now and then.”

Heard, in fact, sensed that something had to give.

Eventually.

And fast.

With no additional time to waste.


“I’m going to this 9-to-5 (job) every day and it just wasn’t cutting it. It was hard for me to get up every day at 6 a.m. to go to work and be there by 8 a.m. But it was so easy for me to get up on Saturday at 4:15 a.m. My first client was as early as 5 a.m., and I could do hair all day and make people feel good. I would be on my feet from sun up to sun down into the next morning with no problem.” — Reneé Monique Heard 


DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — For Heard, a 34-year-old rising businesswoman, the passion she routinely exhibits for her craft, by all accounts, undoubtedly is the primary factor for her sustained success in the ever-so-competitive cosmetology industry.

Because amongst the pivotal things Heard had ultimately discovered is that connecting with her purpose is much more refreshing and therapeutic than working at some dead end job that wasn’t merely adding any value to her life.

How else to explain why she arrived to campus Monday morning, displaying her customary spirited countenance.

“I absolutely love this place,” Heard wrote in a Facebook Check-In post that was read by her nearly 700 social media followers.

She sure does.

Now we know why.

Carolina businessman William E. Sessions, Jr. conquers lengthy cocaine addiction, establishes credible nonprofit organization

 


50 SHADES OF FAVOR 

CLASS IN SESSION — A native of Washington, DC, William Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization. “BFF’s goal is to provide you with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

William E. Sessions, Jr. turned 50 years old on Friday.

Surely, he’s basking in the glory of a moment that only God arranged to transpire.

“I’m liking this 50 thing already. Happy Birthday to me,” Sessions wrote in a Facebook post just before midday EST on Friday. “God is so greatttttt!”

A spirited, enthused post that was accompanied by the hashtags, #It’sNotOver and #I’mHereBecauseofCalvary, amongst the reasons that Sessions is especially giddy about reaching the big 5-0 is due in large part to the fact that God continues to steer him to the divine destiny for which he was created.


MORE ON SESSIONS’ BFF, INC: https://www.facebook.com/BestFootForwardInc/

Consider, for instance, how Sessions, a Mount Olive, North Carolina-area businessman, has gone about providing an entirely unique twist to the acronym, BFF.

Although BFF is commonly referred to as one’s “Best Friend Forever,” Session has appropriately made this familiar acronym apart of his business venture.

A native of Washington, DC, Sessions is the mastermind behind “BFF, Inc.” his credible nonprofit organization.

IN HIS ELEMENT — Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose.

Widely known as Best Foot Forward, Inc., Session’s BFF provide is designed to provide others with strategic, effective information that will great enhance and add value to their life, particularly through his efficient motivational speaking, life coach lessons, workshops and seminars, spiritual enlightenment, as well as through his involvement in community events — many of which are geared toward helping to empower, enrich, and strengthen the lives of others.

Powered by the slogan, “Speaking Words Of Life,” BFF’s goal is to provide clients with the wisdom, knowledge, and proven experienced techniques that’s required for you to make it to your next place of destiny, Sessions told Making Headline News this week.

For Sessions, his rise to evolving and ultimately finding his niche as an accomplished Life Coach and Peer Support Specialist emerged amid a trying season in his life, he acknowledged.


“The competitive drive in life that propels me for this business comes from the determination and hard work that I faced at the end of a nearly 15-year (cocaine) addiction. (I’m) desiring to restructure and put meaning back into my life, but with little-to-no information on who I was, what I was created for, and what to do next, I began a fight that I now fight every day, the struggle to get and stay free from addiction.” — William Sessions of BFF, Inc. 


To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more that Sessions fought, the more he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

UNSHAKABLE FAITH — To his credit, coupled with the divine calling on his life, the more than Sessions fought, the more that he began to discover he had been strategically set aside for God’s use.

Because, after all, God was the Ultimately BFF he so desperately needed, especially during what was a dark season in his life.

“I got back in school and I created a more intense relationship with God,” said Sessions, sounding very much like a man who’s back and better than ever. “I faced much verbal abuse, persecution, and some setbacks, but with coming in contact with the right people and acquiring proven techniques and the knowledge I scarcely gained along the way, I was able to go from a homeless cocaine addict who were counted out by many only to realize that God had another plan for my life.”

And you wonder why God has, quite frankly, been Session’s Ultimately BFF from the outset — even when this addict-turned-businessman had struggled mightily to find a sense of direction in this thing called life.

Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.


AND THE BIBLE SAYS…

“That’s what I want to do with BFF…to help others put their Best Foot Forward and to also know that with BFF, we will definitely become your Best Friend Forever,” Session said.

Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is now being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

On May, 11, for instance, Sessions and his team will host a community wide event known as, “Living To Be A Better Me.”

SOLID SUPPORTING CAST — Now that his nonprofit organization is in full operations, Sessions is being afforded golden opportunities to share of his assortment of life-changing testimonies.

An event that will take place from 2 to 6 p.m. EST at Herman Park Center in nearby Goldsboro, North Carolina, professionals — particularly those who struggle with physical well-being, financial freedom, mental well-being, and spiritual enhancement — will be able to share and dine with each other, during which they will discuss how to become what Sessions calls, “a better me.”

“Everyone who wishes to thrive in 2019 needs to be present,” Sessions said.

GOD’S PLAN — Today, unlike never before, though, Sessions is fully persuaded that his calling is such that God has assigned him to reach back and help others rediscover their purpose.

Having been inspired by his uncle, Elder Levoin Troublefield, and his mentor, Clifton Smith, among others, Sessions is overwhelmingly grateful that God has strategically arranged for him to walk in his purpose — this after having pressed and persevered through arguably the darkest season of his life.

“What I like about the vision and business that God has given me is that I’m able to see lives drastically changed, because someone cared, said Sessions, whose ventures accommodates people and groups of all ages and ethnicities. “It is the greatest feeling in the world to have others come back and tell you that they were moved or positively changed by the things you’ve spoken or assisted with in their lives.”

Because, after all, that’s what friends are for.

Best Friends Forever, that is.

Milwaukee businessman Jevon Flippin’s DCS Premium Scents becoming a beacon of light in community, nationwide

Jevon Flippin is longtime Milwaukee, Wisconsin-area construction worker.

Aside from his regular 9-to-5 gig, he is an accomplished businessman who is widely known for giving back in a big way to his community.

DISPLAYING FAITH THROUGH GIVING — A native of Milwaukee, Jevon Flippin, 45, is owner and chief executive officer of DCS Premium Scents, a rising business venture that is geared largely toward enhancing the lives of others, particularly through what Flippin describes as custom label fundraising, among other entities.

In a nutshell, Flippin doesn’t shy away from the notion that it is better to give than to receive, let alone better to esteem others highly than himself.

To his uniquely distinct credit, Flippin’s reputation is such that he’s fully committed to giving back and, most importantly, becoming a beacon of light amongst those in need.

“There are two kinds of people in life,” Flippin told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “Interested and committed…and I’m committed.”

Indeed he is, especially by way of entrepreneurship.

In addition, Flippin’ business is widely known for its assortment of air fresheners which, according to the thriving businessman, it is extremely ideal, especially as it relates to fundraising opportunities for schools, churches, youth, recreational, and amateur athletic teams, as well as other community-based groups and organizations.

“My competitive drive in life goes by my motto,” said Flippin, alluding back to the proverbial two kinds of people he appropriately suggested.

Interestingly, amongst the notable factors that have given way to sustained success for Flippin’s business is that it essentially serves as an effective avenue whereby organizations can generate a rather monumental profit through his products.

According to Flippin, businesses and organizations can profit as much as up to $200 to $1,000 — or more — within a few days without any out-of-pocket payments, he said.

In other words, as Flippin points out without hesitation, consumers will have before them what he labels a “profit first, pay later” type of program.

“Adult leaders of youth organizations don’t have to come out of their pocket anymore,” said Flippin, a proud alum of a Meridian High School in nearby Mounds, Illinois.

Flippin’ business is widely known for its assortment of air fresheners which, according to the thriving businessman, it is extremely ideal, especially as it relates to fundraising opportunities for schools, churches, youth, recreational, and amateur athletic teams, as well as other community-based groups and organizations.

Not only that, DCS Premium Scents is a progressive business venture that caters to ranging in ages 10 years old and above. Given the immense strides Flippin’s business has made since its inception, it’s safe to assume that DCS Premium Scents is starting to attract more of a national presence.

That, according to Flippin, was all a part of his vision from the outset.

“(My) business is (becoming) nationwide,” Flippinn said. “My personal mission is to give youth an outlet to have a business product with their identity on the product that will assist and lead to entrepreneurship.”

Now we know why he’s an accomplished businessman who is widely known for giving back in a big way to his community.

‘Extraordinary’ Alabama radio personality/TV show host Sybil Sloan impacting countless lives while functioning mightily in her element

Earlier this week, Sybil Sloan took to her Facebook page, where she assembled a rather intriguing, awe-inspiring post.

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE — Widely regarded as a “Motivational Speaker of Extraordinary Inspiration,” Accomplished Life Coach Sybil Sloan is a radio personality for Praise965.com and is the host for Breaking Through Your NOW Show that is aired frequently on the YouTube Channel. Also, Sloan is the host of The Breaking Through Your NOW Show as well as The NOW Coach: Breaking Through Your NOW Show, which airs every Tuesday at 5:30 a.m. CST on Montgomery’s CW 22.

She was feeling mostly “energized,” as she insinuated in a Facebook Live video that generated hundreds of views.

A social media video she installed amid various inclement weather-related school closings in her area of Montgomery, Alabama, Sloan thought it necessary to inspire the masses as only she could.  

“Visionaries never take a day off, Sloan said. Complete your vision board. Be productive by any means necessary. “Change the way that you think and you will alter the entire course of your life.”

To grasp a thorough concept of why Sloan routinely encourages people from the various walks of life to maximize their potential, look no further than her well-publicized endeavor as arguably one of the region’s most skilled and promising radio personalities.

A certified life coach as well as a licensed spiritual counselor who is famously known as “The NOW Coach,” Sloan, 44, during interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke at length about how she’s managed to persevere and clear a slew of life’s hurdles, a trend that has greatly positioned and equipped her for a time such as now.

“My life has been full of various obstacles, but one day I realized that it was all part of a grand scheme,” Sloan, a native of Kannapolis North Carolina, explained. “I put the work in to address my childhood issues. I missed it and had to revisit some areas, but I get it now. I have an earnest desire to help people get through every moment of their journey.”

In a detailed description of Sloan on her personal website that is www.yourlifecoachsybilsloan.com, amongst her key objectives as an accomplished life coach are:

All things considered, Sloan would be the first to admit that her venture as a life coach isn’t always an easy task. Much like life itself, it, too, has its share of challenges, she acknowledged.

“Coaching is not a do-this-and-that-will-happen-concept for me,” Sloan explained. “It is reaching deep, planning and allowing you to come through and out of your experience whole and complete. I am part advisor, part visionary, part cheerleader. As your coach, it is my joy to help you gain more in personal development, self-discovery, clarity, balance, satisfaction, self-improvement and success.”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — All things considered, Sloan would be the first to admit that her venture as a life coach isn’t always an easy task. Much like life, it, too, has its share of challenges, she acknowledged.

Her clientele ranges mostly from teenage individuals to baby boomers, she emphasized.

Millbrook, Alabama-based author/minister Dr. Albert Russell’s premiere book having a majestic kingdom impact

Husbands, love your wives, even as Christ also loved the church, and gave Himself for it. (Ephesians 5:25)

 

DOING IT GOD’S WAY — Dr. Albert Russell is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book, Agapao: Loving Your Wife the Way God Intended, a compelling, spiritually gut-checking written document that officially hit the market just last year.

For Dr. Albert Russell, his God-orchestrated vision had spanned a little more than eight years.

To his credit, though, once he grabbed a firm hold of it, he needed somewhere in the neighborhood of roughly a month to witness it come full circle.

“It was not a whole work though,” Dr. Russell during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said of his long-awaited published project. “When I revisited it in 2017, I learned that I had matured tremendously, and many of the topics warranted further treatment to make them more robust.”

The encounter to which Dr. Russell is alluding is his awe-inspiring book debut that was culminated with the much-anticipated release of Agapao: Loving Your Wife the Way God Intended, a compelling, spiritually gut-checking written document that officially hit the market just last year.

A book that was assembled while his then-wife (whom is now deceased) was deployed to Iraq, Dr. Russell’s Agapao: Loving Your Wife the Way God Intended appropriately explores the assortment of emotions that he experienced or, as he specifically recalled, “the transformation” that took place in his life and his commitment to ensuring that his wife, Danielle, would be secure in knowing his unyielding love for her.

“Agapao was written as a guide for couples, men who are looking to strengthen their relationships and for women who want a man’s perspective on marriage,” Dr. Russell explained in a detailed description of his book at https://www.aer251books.com/.

A book that has garnered favorable rave reviews even in its infancy stages, Dr. Russell’s passion to revisit his vision for composing his first book was spearheaded by his friend, Tori Walker whom, according to the author and ordained minister, kept “pressing” him to “put it out.”

WHAT ABOUT DR. ALBERT RUSSELL? www.revalbertrussellbooks.com

“She was instrumental in getting me to clean it up and finish it so that it could be published,” said Dr. Russell, a native of Mobile, Alabama who currently resides in nearby Millbrook.

REMEMBERING DANIELLE — A book that was assembled while his then-wife (whom is now deceased) was deployed to Iraq, Dr. Russell’s Agapao: Loving Your Wife the Way God Intended appropriately explores the assortment of emotions that he experienced or, as he specifically recalled, “the transformation” that took place in his life and his commitment to ensuring that his wife, Danielle, would be secure in knowing his love for her.

Interestingly, Dr. Russell — though he’s less than a year removed from having witnessed the release of his premiere book that is available at Amazon Kindle and Kindle Unlimited — acknowledged that other written documents are presently in the works, most notably a daily devotional called “Walk with Me: God Seen, God Heard, God Revealed: A 365 Day Devotional,” “Pushing through the Pain” — a project that’s geared largely toward how he has coped with the death of his wife — and a fiction book entitled “Breaking the Curse.”

“The children’s books are my way of passing a legacy on to my kids and to teach them about being entrepreneurial and developing revenue streams through doing something that they love, something that is not a burden,” Dr. Russell explained. “My daughter, Genesis, is the writer and my son, Donovan, is the illustrator and artist.”

THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR — A book that has garnered favorable rave reviews though it is in its infancy stages, Dr. Russell’s passion to revisit his vision for composing his first book was spearheaded by his friend, Tori Walker whom, according to the author and ordained minister, kept “pressing” him to put it out.

All things considered, Dr. Russell doesn’t shy away from the notion that, well, perhaps this what he deems “my season to write.”

“I have several other books, but they are all works in progress,” Dr. Russell said. “The devotional that I’m writing is getting most of my attention right now so I can finish it within the next few months.”

As for the divine message he aspires to send to his reading audience through his books, Dr. Russell said it all goes back to God, Whom steadfastly provides him daily with the sense of direction he needs to pass along to the masses.

“I believe that God is always speaking,” Dr. Russell said. “The message is a bit different for each book.  Agapao is God telling husbands to love their wives as Christ loved the church. It is directed toward men, because I’m a man, so that is the perspective that I speak from.

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — As for the divine message he aspires to send to his reading audience through his books, Dr. Russell said it all goes back to God, Who steadfastly provides him daily with the sense of direction he needs to pass along to the masses.

“The devotional is God’s little daily nudge to us to remind us that He has not forsaken us nor forgotten us,” Dr. Russell continued, adding that Agapao is attracting constant favorable feedback. “Pushing is basically me preaching to myself and reminding myself that I’m not the only person who has ever suffered great loss and God reminding me (and others who can relate) that He’s a restorer. Breaking the Curse is a fictional work but, in my opinion, it is God reminding someone that they can do anything that they put their mind to.”

Because of the purpose and vision for which God created him, Dr. Russell deems it absolutely imperative to thank his Creator for the strength and ability to write — and to do it virtually routinely now.

WORKING HIS VISION — Interestingly, Dr. Russell, though he’s less than a year removed from having witnessed the release of his premiere book, acknowledged that other written documents are presently in the works, most notably a daily devotional called “Walk with Me: God Seen, God Heard, God Revealed: A 365 Day Devotional,” “Pushing through the Pain” — a project that’s geared largely toward how he has coped with the death of his wife — and a fiction book entitled “Breaking the Curse.”

Thanks in large part to a beloved friend, who helped “pressure” and steer him to his destiny.

“There are so many days that I don’t have the desire but God puts that fire in me and I push through,” Dr. Russell said. “I’m still grieving, so it’s a process, but I am remaining hopeful and positive so that I can continue to produce quality work.  I also want to thank everyone who has supported me through this process. 

“(I thank) my family and friends, my friend, Tori, for her constant encouragement and being a source of business ideas, my friend, Les, who has been a tremendous help with editing, my friend, Joy, who gave me some great initial feedback on the later draft of Agapao, my kids and my mother-in-law, who keep me laughing and encouraged, and my church family for their support.”
