Atlanta-area author Lisa Duffey takes another step toward her destiny in ‘I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.’


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


DALLAS — It was a rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in Lisa Duffey’s life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

“I got the vision about three years ago but never acted on it,” Duffey, an Atlanta-area author, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the memorable, emotionally-driven developments that led to her contributing to a soon-to-be released book. “It was just too painful. Then I began to see women coming out, talking about their experiences regarding sexual abuse and domestic violence.”


GOD’S VIRTUOUS WOMAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Hempstead, New York, Lisa Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

A native of Hempstead, New York, Duffey is among a dozen authors who assumed an immeasurable platform in the forthcoming book entitled, “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2.”

An awe-inspiring, spiritually gut-checking project that is forwarded by Atlanta-area empowerment coach and fellow author Dr. Carolyn Stephens, the sophomore edition of “I Am A Black Woman” is widely known as “One Voice” and addresses a variety of pertinent topics — most notably surviving divorce, sexual and physical abuse, broken identity, and mental illness, among other subjects.

 

For Duffey, that she was afforded the golden opportunity to share of her life-enhancing experiences in the second edition of this book, by all accounts, was a defining moments in the life of a woman who knows full well she’s been set aside for God’s use.

“I was approached by one of the co-authors and found out they were working on this project,” Duffey explained. “That is when I knew I wanted to be a part of it. I was ready to tell my story.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

That’s because not only has Duffey dauntlessly disclosed of her assortment of testimonies while fortifying pure boldness and confidence but, more than anything, it seems that joining forces with a gallery of Christian-oriented authors has become a clear path toward her purpose.

Her destiny, too.


FOR IT IS WRITTEN…

“I chose to write this chapter, because I needed to heal from past hurts — physically and emotionally — and also let other women know that this kind of behavior should not be tolerated from the men in their life,” said Duffey, recalling her stormy, tumultuous past that was mired by her being victimized by a dark season of child molestation.

“I put up with it from age 14 to 30.  As I began to put my story on paper, I realized I had things locked away in secret places in my mind, and as those places were opened, I began to forgive those that had hurt me.”

To her credit, the more she customarily grasped the power of forgiveness, the more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound.


THE FIGHT WAS FIXED

GREAT IS THY FAITHFULNESS — For Duffey, hearing other writers display a great deal of transparency regarding situations that essentially have shaped their lives for the better, in many aspects, fueled her desire to follow suit.

The more she began to gain closure to those things that previously kept her bound, the more God began to steer her toward her purpose.

The more God began to steer her toward her purpose, the more she began to discover just how much her immeasurable gifts were needed, particularly as it pertains to advancing the kingdom.

Look at her today, a true, big-hearted and devout woman of faith, pressing and navigating mightily toward her destiny for such a spirited, life-changing time as now.

Yep. That’s just like God.


“God has and is still using me to show empathy and compassion for women who have or are going through what I went through,” said Duffey, explaining how “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” has become part of the purpose for which God has created her. “It’s easy to tell someone to leave a horrible relationship when they have not been through one. Since I been through it all, I get it…some women just can’t pick up and leave. They have to stay and endure the hardship and pain. Those on the outside should be there for them and not be judgmental.”


Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

And with “I Am A Black Woman, Volume 2” set to be released in the coming months, this brilliant and talent author has already become the beneficiary of an array of favorable feedback.

So much for the rather turbulent, tumultuous, seemingly unbearable season in her life, one in which it seemed far too insurmountable to bear at times.

That was then.

This is now.

STAY TUNED — Now that she has steadfastly exercised her faith through the world of authorship, Duffey has acknowledged that other books are on the horizon, much sooner than later.

A new season, accompanied by new memories, accompanied new mercies — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“It’s been rough, watching my dad beat my mother constantly and trying kill her in front of us,” Duffey said. “Becoming a teenage girl and being beaten constantly, mistreated, beaten up, raped, sodomized…I can go on and on.  I felt hopeless.”

Still, amongst the things that Duffey has ultimately discovered is that in spite of her slew of hell and high water encounters, God had miraculous plans for her life.

“One day, I did a simple equation, 2-1=1,” Duffey recalled. “I realized that if I took myself out of the equation, that meant 1 less headache — the man in my life — and that’s what I finally did after so many years.  At 56 (years of age), I am married to a wonderful man. (I’m a) mother of six wonderful adult children, I have three stepchildren, 10 grandchildren, been on my job as a tax analyst for 32 years, and married to a wonderful man named Keith Duffey.”

Yep. That’s just like God, always providing for us an emphatic, memorable way of escape.

Delaware couple Daniel and Jessica Miller revitalize a credible private transportation service that’s a fixture in Texas


And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV)


Jessica Miller doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful to God for bestowing upon her an array of blessings.

Amongst those who highlights her grandest of blessings: her newlywed husband, Daniel Miller.

Having exchanged nuptials on November 10, 2018, amongst the Millers’ notable achievements is continuing a credible business venture that Jessica Miller started some three-and-a-half years ago in Humble, Texas.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

IN GOD’S TIMING — A couple who resides in Newark, Delaware, Daniel and Jessica Miller are co-owners of Happy Hands & Feet Transportation. A business that went into full operations in Summer 2015, Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is geared largely toward providing safe transportation service for children at a reasonably affordable rate.

A business that went into full operations in Summer 2015, Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is geared largely toward providing safe transportation service for children at a reasonably affordable rate.

A distinctly unique business that is nearing its fourth year of existence, Jessica Miller acknowledged that Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is extremely ideal, considering it allows her the keen flexibility, particularly as it relates to attending church regularly and spending quality time with family.

Especially now that she’s a newlywed.


DELAWARE STATE OF MIND  

FAMILY FOCUS — By and large, it is due in large to love and support Jessica Miller routinely exemplifies for her family that has fueled her fervent desire to start a transportation business that figures to have similar success in Delaware.

“This is very special, because I left Texas for the first time in life while flying for the first time,” said Jessica Miller, explaining the exciting developments leading to her marriage to Daniel in early November. “And (then I) got married to a wonderful man of God, who’s from Philadelphia.”


Together, not only has this couple — whom, prior to tying the knot, had been separated by 1,518 miles — formed a solid, Christian-based union, but their unyielding love has inspired them to collectively establish what could appropriately be dubbed Happy Hands (North) now that a second location is in operations.

SOLID SUPPORT — Interestingly, now that she’s been blessed to marry a big-hearted, godly man who understands the importance of loving his wife as Christ loves the church, it’s safe to assume Happy Hands — North — best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

The Millers, by all accounts, are especially giddy to have relaunched Happy Hands in Delaware, considering Jessica Miller had built a solid clientele in her native establishment, during which she customarily provided services for over 70 families in Texas.

“It’s my passion,” said Jessica Miller, summing up her excitement for the second location of her the family business.


WHERE IT ALL STARTED 

DOING IT GOD’S WAY — The Millers, by all accounts, are especially giddy to have relaunched Happy Hands in Delaware, considering Jessica Miller had built a solid clientele in her native establishment when she customarily provided services for over 70 families in Texas.

More than anything, though, Jessica Miller said a transportation business of this nature is ideal, in large part because it provides what she describes as safe and dependable door-to-door pick up and drop off transportation services.

TREND SETTER — A distinctly unique business that is nearing its fourth year of existence, Miller acknowledged that Happy Hands & Feet Transportation is extremely ideal, considering it allows her the keen flexibility, particularly as it relates to attending church regularly and spending quality time with family.

In addition, Jessica Miller credits the founder of JMD Transportation, LLC, as well as It’s On The Way Delivery Services as other local businesses in Texas that have greatly helped enable her to fulfill her entrepreneurship endeavors.

“God gave us all purpose and gifts in our life, especially to help one another,” Jessica Miller told Making Headline News during a March 2018 interview.

By and large, it is due in large to love and support she routinely exemplifies for her family that has fueled her fervent desire to start a transportation business, one that figures to have similar success in Delaware.

ALL LOCKED IN — More than anything, though, Jessica Miller said a transportation business of this nature is ideal, in large part because it provides what she describes as safe and dependable door-to-door pick up and drop off transportation services.

“Having 16 grandchildren, whom had to walk to a school (on a number of) occasions, I don’t want children walking to school,” said Jessica Miller, whose venture accommodates children from pre-kindergarten to high school. “(I love) seeing the smiles on little ones’ faces.”

Interestingly, now that she’s been blessed to marry a big-hearted, godly man who understands the importance of loving his wife as Christ loves the church, it’s safe to assume that Happy Hands — er, North — best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

IN THE NEWS — “God gave us all purpose and gifts in our life, especially to help one another,” Jessica Miller told Making Headline News during a March 2018 interview.

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose,” Jessica Miller, reciting the familiar Biblical passage that is housed in Romans 8:28, said during a March 2018 with MHN.

Because after all, Jessica Miller doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s overwhelmingly grateful to God for bestowing upon her an array of blessings.

Amongst those who highlights her grandest of blessings: her newlywed husband, Daniel — whom, much to her delight, just happens to be her most-celebrated business partner.

Connecticut businesswoman Lieutenant Shelly Carter bringing awareness to ‘lack of females in the fire service’

 


CHANGING OF THE GUARD 

PRESSING FORWARD — To her credit, Lieutenant Shelly Carter is empowering girls and women to build their confidence, courtesy of her annual Girls Future Firefighters Camp, an event that is centered largely on bringing awareness to what this firefighter-turned-businesswoman describes as a “lack of females in the fire service.”

For a 19-year-veteran of the City of Hartford Fire Department, Lieutenant Shelly Carter has learned, seen, and discovered a lot.

Still, even to this very day, Carter doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s clinging to one crucial concern.

“What I realized was there are few women who know about becoming a firefighter, because no one never presented the idea to them,” Carter told Making Headline News during a weekend interview. “My goal is to empower girls and women and to build their confidence.”
To her credit, Carter is doing just that — and much more — courtesy of her annual Girls Future Firefighters Camp, an event that is centered largely on bringing awareness to what this firefighter-turned-businesswoman describes as a “lack of females in the fire service.”

HERE’S MORE ON GFFC: https://www.facebook.com/girlsfuturefirefightercamp/

“My girls will leave my camp knowing that there are no obstacles that they cannot handle,” Carter, 49, said.

A credible, community-wide event that is entering its fourth year of existence, Carter emphasized, among other things, that while a date has yet to be determined for a Girls Future Firefighters Camp that customarily takes place during the summer months, now is still an ideal time to promote it as a strategic way to create change in one of the world’s most respected industry.

A native of Hartford, Connecticut, Carter began her fire service stint with the City of Hartford Fire Department in July 1999, during which she was assigned to what is known as Engine Company 9.

Interestingly, she assumed responsibilities as a structural firefighter until she was promoted to Driver/ Engineer in December 2011, this after having turned in a masterful display while functioning diligently in a predominately male role.


SETTING MAJOR TRENDS 

WE’RE ALL IN — A credible, community-wide event that is entering its fourth year of existence, Carter emphasized, among other things, that while a date has yet to be determined for a Girls Future Firefighters Camp that customarily takes place during the summer months, now is still an ideal time to promote it as a strategic way to create change in one of the nation’s most respected industry.

As it turned out and much to her delight, one favorable effort had ultimately given way to even more sustained success for Carter, who holds Bachelor’s Degree in Fire Administration from Charter Oak State College and is currently pursuing a Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Anna Maria College.

That’s because Carter was eventually assigned to the role of Driver/Engineer for what is known as Engine Company 10 and 16.

MUCH RESPECT — A native of Hartford, Connecticut, Carter began her fire service stint with the City of Hartford Fire Department in July 1999, during which she was assigned to what is known as Engine Company 9.

Then in August 2015, P. O. Carter was installed as Lieutenant in the Fire Marshal’s office, where she is currently working as a Fire Prevention Lieutenant, Arson Investigator, as well as a Fire Code Official.

In addition, Lieutenant Carter has been detailed to the Special Services Division, as well as the Training Division as an accomplished instructor, a development that has benefited her mightily, thus sums up in large part why her annual Girls Future Firefighters Camp is absolutely essential.


A MASSIVE IMPACT 

SHE GOT THAT RIGHT — “My girls will leave my camp knowing that there are no obstacles that they cannot handle,” Carter, 49, said.

“My personal mission is to show girls and women that they are strong and very, very capable,” said Carter, a devout woman of faith who’s also an accomplished minister. “My hope is that they will begin to think outside the box and explore non-conventional careers such as firefighting, which is so rewarding.”


Given how Carter has been blessed to move up the ranks in an industry that is dominated by her male counterparts, and it’s no wonder she has appropriately assumed the illustrious role as a spokesperson for ladies who aspire to delve off into the fire fighter arena.

GIVING BACK BIG TIME — All things considered, Carter doesn’t shy away from the notion also that it is her civic duty to give back in a big way and, most importantly, inspire other women to become empowered about one of the world’s most respected industries.

“The people that inspire me to do this camp are the faces of the little girls that I see when I step off the fire truck,” Carter said. “And they are amazed that I am a woman.”

All things considered, Carter doesn’t shy away from the notion also that it is her civic duty to give back in a big way and, most importantly, inspire other women to become empowered about one of the world’s most respected industries.

HATS OFF TO HER — “The people that inspire me to do this camp are the faces of the little girls that I see when I step off the fire truck,” Carter said. “And they are amazed that I am a woman.”

“(I’m doing this) for all the women who are in the fire service who have been looked over or pushed aside and treated unfairly,” Carter said of an annual camp that’s geared mostly toward girls ranging in ages 13-to-18. “For the women who’s shoulders I stand on that have paved the way for me to be here…for me to be a firefighter.”

All the while deeming it essential to reach back and help others follow suit.

“To God be the glory for the things he has done,” Carter said.

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.

New York entrepreneur Jesikah Lei starts business from a shelter, completes dramatic comeback with second venture


STRENGTH UNDER PRESSURE 

DEFYING ALL ODDS — A native of the Bronx, New York, Jesikah Lei is the proud owner of dual businesses as the CEO of Allure-Hair & Lashes and jNewYorkBoutique.

So what exactly did Jesikah Lei do to deserve the various forms of hardships that disrupted her life and resulted in a devastating blow to her faith?

Nothing at all, to be honest.

“I’ve been homeless, raped, beaten, abused…a lot,” Lei, a New York businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the tumultuous, emotionally-driven experiences through which she had endured long before she was blessed to become an entrepreneur.

Despite all through which she had gone, one pivotal thing remained the same.

That is, Lei never shied away from her faith in her Creator.

“God was and is my Savior,” Lei says without hesitation.

For Lei, a 42-year-old single mother of two, that certainly proved to be the case in the life of a young businesswoman, who knows full well what it’s like to diligently press and navigate her way through arguably the toughest of obstacles.


WHEN ORDERING JESIKAH’S PRODUCTS: paypal.me/jnewyorkboutique

FOUGHT HER WAY THROUGH — For Lei, one favorable development had ultimately led to another, and before she knew it, jNewYorkBoutique was up and running, in full operation — all while God continued to work behind the scenes, thus preparing her a table in the presence of her enemies in the process.

Heck, even when she was forced to land a job at the tender age of was 14, God was right there.

Even when her young body was violated time and again through physical and sexual abuse, God was right there.

Even when she vacated grade school prematurely, God was right there.

Even when she had given birth to her first child as a teenage mother, God was right there.

And, amongst the things this devoted single mother-turned-businesswoman has discovered is that God is still very much right here today unlike never before.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Lei is the proud owner of dual businesses as the CEO of Allure-Hair & Lashes and jNewYorkBoutique.

Talk about making a dramatic comeback for the ages.


“I actually started my business while living in a shelter five years ago. All I had was an idea, a prayer, and a plan.” — Jesikah Lei


As it turned out, that was just about all she needed to jumpstart a business that is benefited her mightily — this after all the hell and chaos and unnecessary foolishness she had to endure.


WHEN ORDERING JESIKAH’S PRODUCTS: paypal.me/jnewyorkboutique

“Once I received a call for my Section-8 apartment,” I knew at that moment God had answered my prayer,” said Lei, giving God His rightful credit. “Now, the plan? No so much, yet (Lei is laughing now) “So, I started doing my research on how to start my very own online boutique.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

And, for Lei, one favorable development had ultimately led to another.

And before she knew it, jNewYorkBoutique was up and running and in full operations — all while God continued to work behind the scenes, thus preparing her a table in the presence of her enemies in the process.

ROUND TWO — As her Lei’s Allure venture, it is a business she established some two months ago and is still “growing in product,” Lei said.

As her Lei’s Allure venture, it is a business Lei established some two months ago and is still “growing in product,” she said.

“I joined many Facebook groups for support and learned purposes as well,” said Lei, explaining the essential steps needed to establish her business. “A new journey for a new me.”

For Lei, it was just the much-anticipated fresh start she needed, considering even during her season in the wilderness, her support system seemed practically nonexistent, she explained.

Still, when the dust had settled, God was right there — had been there, really, from the outset.

“I had to think of a plan to get myself and my son out of poverty, and I knew that fashion had always been a passion of mine, so, I decided on opening my very first online clothing boutique,” Lei said.

Much to her delight, her business went into full operations in July 2018.

Much to her delight, it had been flourishing ever since.

For the record, Lei would be the first to admit that she didn’t need anyone to feel sorry for her. Credit her idea, prayer, and a plan as the reasons why.

“I said, ‘Enough is enough,’” said Lei, explaining her motivation for choosing to turn to entrepreneurship. “I knew that God would hold me down.”

Indeed He has. He’s been holding her down ever since.

Talk about making a dramatic comeback for the ages.

“My son’s kids and granddaughter are the reason for it all,” Lei says of her sustained success as an entrepreneur. “I knew that I had to succeed and accomplish my goals.”

Today, Lei has deemed it essential to empower other girls and young ladies to never place their dreams by the wayside.

BUT GOD — “I’ve been homeless, raped, beaten, abused…a lot,” Lei, a young New York businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, recalling the tumultuous, emotionally-driven experiences through which she had endured long before she was blessed to become an entrepreneur.

“It’s important for all females — young and old — that no matter the struggle, hurt, or pain, you can do all things through faith and (you’ve) just got to believe in yourself,” Lei said. “Someone out there is listening and will bring light into your dark days.”

Just as God had done for her.

North Carolina businessman Aaron Jones benefiting mightily courtesy of his immeasurable writing talents


PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS

MAN WITH THE PLAN — A native of the Bronx, New York, Aaron Jones, 34, is a Charlotte, North Carolina-based businessman as the owner and chief executive officer of called Divine Lit, an up-and-coming venture that is widely known for publishing high quality fiction and non-fiction literature.

Just recently, Aaron Jones hosted what was known as the Divine Lit Holiday contest, during which winning contestants would become the beneficiaries of an autographed copies of his August 2018 released book entitled, “Illusions Of Happiness.”

Must have been some of contest, given the overwhelming response from a gallery of participants.

“I want to send a sincere thank you to Shawn Ravenell Pendergrass,” Jones wrote in a January 4 Facebook post. “She was one of two winners who participated in the Divine Lit Holiday contest and won an autographed copy of Illusions Of Happiness.”

Much like a rather delightful Pendergrass, who was seen in a photo holding Jones’ book, that essentially has been the general consensus amongst this author’s supporters who deemed it essential to purchase his latest written work.

A native of the Bronx, New York, Jones, 34, is a Charlotte, North Carolina-based businessman as the owner and chief executive officer of called Divine Lit, an up-and-coming venture that is widely known for publishing high quality fiction and non-fiction literature.


“So far, my business hasn’t taken me anywhere in the country…yet,” Jones told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “However, I plan on doing book tours in the near future and look forward to meeting new people who discover my work for the first time.” — Aaron Jones


Not only will those with whom Jones cross paths be afforded the golden opportunity to build a solid working rapport with a young businessman who’s striving diligently to enhance his brand, but like Jones, they will have the luxury of having their published work be thrust on what is shaping up to be a national platform.

“What I like most about being in my business is that I maintain 100 percent creative control over my work,” Jones said. “Working with words to bring a story to life is an underrated art form. To see a project go from inception, to notes, to sentences and paragraphs, and form a 200-hundred-page manuscript complete with a vivid cover that catches the eye are very rewarding to me.”

A MUST READ — A book that is comprised of 364-pages in length, Jones’ Illusions Of Happiness depicts the life of a man name Anquan whom, according to this writer, “isn’t happy.”

By and large, seeing the stunned and amazed looks on the faces of his clients are priceless, Jones acknowledged.

“However, the most fulfilling part is when people hold that book in their hand and consume the hard work that went into it and actually enjoy it,” Jones said. “That’s the part that keeps me going.”

And if things continue to hold up and take shape for this thriving, progressive businessman, then chances are, the mission that headlines his venture is destined to come full circle.

Much sooner than later.

“My personal mission with my business and my writing is to create manuscripts that people will not only enjoy for their entertainment, but tell captivating stories that will inspire, transpire, and impact people’s lives in a positive way,” said Jones, whose business accommodates persons of young and middle age adults.

LEADING THE CHARGE — Not only will those with whom Jones cross paths be afforded the golden opportunity to build a solid working rapport with a young businessman who’s striving diligently to enhance his brand, but like Jones, they will have the luxury of having their published work published thrust on what is shaping up to be a national platform.

As for Jones’ Illusions Of Happiness,” his featured project has amassed a slew of rave reviews since its much-anticipated debut last spring.

A book that is comprised of 364-pages in length, Jones’ Illusions Of Happiness depicts the life of a man name Anquan whom, according to this writer, “isn’t happy.”

While in his twenties, in fact, Anquan elects to separate from his wife, Janessa, a development that transpired after two years of marriage.

“His reason for doing so is simple. He isn’t happy,” said a spokesperson for Jones’ book in a detail introduction at Amazon.com. “Can you blame him? It wasn’t what he envisioned for his life.”

Consequently, the plot eventually thickens in a book that has been dubbed a constant page-turner by a large contingent of Jones’ reading audience.

That’s because Anquan begins to test the dating market in search for what he believes is an ideal mate, or a younger more attractive woman, Jones reveals. “Children are grounds for automatic disqualification,” the Amazon spokesperson is quick to point out. “Armed with his two chauvinistic and womanizer friends, he begins his quest, but quickly discovers that finding his dream wife isn’t easy and that he doesn’t fit the criteria of the females he’s attracted to. Feeling dejected and confused, he begins to question if leaving Janessa was the right decision and contemplates on if he should go back to her before it’s too late.”

HOLDING IT DOWN — If things continue to hold up and take shape for this thriving, progressive businessman, then chances are, the mission that headlines his venture is destined to come full circle. Much sooner than later.

All things considered, Jones — who relocated from New York to the Carolinas as a teenager — is just delightful of the fact that his entrepreneurship dreams have become realities.

“I really can’t name any one person that inspired me to do this,” Jones said. “The only thing that’s certain is that I’ve always had a gift with words. Growing up, English was my favorite subject and I would always get excellent grades on book reports and essays. I guess I was tired to wasting my talent and finally decided to use it for the betterment of myself and for society as a whole.”

He’s doing just that.

And that, of course, isn’t an illusion.

The mission which McKnight is alluding is that about which she assumes the role as CEO of Velocity Changers, a globally-acclaimed company that is centered largely on offering it clients innovative ways to get their stories from out their spirits onto paper or, as McKnight jokingly says, on to “kindle.”

“We cater to most genres, but are particular to inspirational, empowerment-based fiction, business, and relational stories,” McKnight, 33, said of her business venture that is customarily accompanied by the slogan, ‘We change lives one book at a time.’

PUTTIN’ IN WORK — McKnight isn’t just an accomplished businesswoman. She’s one who has become thoroughly committed to ensuring that she continues to function diligently in her element.

A native the New Orleans, McKnight — who resides in Houston — said that she essentially was birthed into the entrepreneurship industry.


“Entrepreneurship has been all around me as my parents, uncles, and even neighbors in my grandmother’s neighborhood always had a means to help others through a paid skill. As I ventured into adulthood, the constraints of the 9-to-5 (job) life always left me sorely underwhelmed and innovatively distraught from a lack of creative flow and the inability to increase my income with perfected skills.” — Texas Businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight


That certainly isn’t the case today for McKnight, a sharp and resourceful businesswoman, who has surely enjoyed her share of sustained success as her own boss.

ANOTHER MASSIVE MILESTONE — McKnight recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.” An informative and intriguing project that hit the market via Amazon & Barnes and Noble online on December 15, McKnight will publicly promote her newly-assembled book during an official release party on January 15.

Having graduated in the top 20 percent of her class at New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker Senior High School, McKnight holds an Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health from Cameron College and is currently pursuing a four-year degree in Business Administration/Entrepreneurship.

An Air Force veteran, McKnight was serviced in Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as the Operation Iraqi Freedom Era.

As for Velocity Changers, she said she is committed to ensuring that it remains a center, of sorts, for authors and bloggers — “novice and seasoned,” she said — who need assistance in finding their voice to write their creative work in efforts to publish and become bestsellers.

“We have both Do-It-With-You and Do-It-For-You packages where we go from the brainstorming process, all the way to marketing and publishing in both group and one-on-one settings,” McKnight said.

Interestingly and to her credit, McKnight’s flourishing business has fueled her desire to become more of a fixture in the authorship industry.

Also, she will be a featured speaker during a local telesummit hosted by the Ruach Life Network, she announced recently.

A business that caters mostly to women — “and some men,” she said — ranging in ages 24 and 60, McKnight established Velocity Changers in 2014.

To her credit, it has been a constant success ever since.

“Positivity is my life,” McKnight said. “Without affirmations, well-wishes, and hopeful gestures, the spirit dies. So for me, inspiring and esteeming others is second nature just as breathing. Everyone has a story to tell, but most need a guide to help them pull it out of them and the confidence to stand in it.”

Pittsburgh’s Heather Lyn overcomes soft drink addiction, establishes a credible health and wellness venture


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES HEATHER LYN 


Heather Lyn would be the first to admit that she’s had her share of obstacles.

Still, she’d be the first admit that never did she allow them to deter her from living her best life.

“I’ve spent most of life sick,” Heather Lyn told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “Oftentimes, things would happen to me that even the doctors couldn’t explain, yet understand.”

 

Diagnosed with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue, as well as an assortment of what she described as “physical incapabilities,” Heather Lyn recalled like yesterday how these seemingly insurmountable hurdles had eventually given way to gaining a considerable amount of weight or, as she tells it, the “heaviest I ever was.”

“No matter what I tried, nothing would take even one pound off of me,” Heather Lyn recalled. “I had a strong addiction to Diet Pepsi, an addiction that could not be broken.”

For Heather Lyn, a native of Pittsburgh, even a host of family members and close acquaintances couldn’t help lure her away from a soft drink obsession that contributed mightily to her unsatisfactory weight increase.

Then suddenly, something rather intriguing happened, something that had ultimately changed the overall landscape of her life.

“One day while talking to a friend on the West Coast, she introduced me to a product that I just had to learn more about,” Heather Lyn explained. “I told her if it’s really that good, I had to have it.”

For Heather Lyn, not only was the weight loss product “really that good,” but much to her delight, it has benefited her mightily.

Now today, Heather Lyn has emerged as progressive, thriving businesswoman, whereby she customarily encourages others to elevate their health, wealth, and happiness.

“I instantly jumped on the website and placed my order,” Heather Lyn said some health and wellness products for which she’s aiming to garner some favorable leads. “I could not wait to get this product into my hands.”

And now that this health-empowering product has altered her life for all the reasons, she’s now on a quest to help others reap and savor similar results.

“On a bright and sunny Saturday morning, I drove down to the local gas station to get my 52 ounce Diet Pepsi. I felt like I needed the jolt to get my day started,” Heather recalled. “When I returned home, the UPS driver delivered my package that I was anxiously awaiting for.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

“I ripped that box opened, and I followed the instructions to get this product into my system,” Heather Lyn said. “I was busy, preparing for our upcoming move and I really wasn’t thinking of anything else. Later in the day, it dawned on me how many cups of water I drank that day, while my Diet Pepsi sat idle…how many boxes I had packed, how much progress I made.”

Now that she’s fervently adopted a new lease on life through her globally-acclaimed health and wellness products, she’d be remiss if she did not encourage others to follow suit.

“For the first time in 30-plus years, I felt amazing,” Heather Lyn said in wonderment. “Knowing what this product did for me in such a short time, I knew that I could not keep this from anyone. I had to share it with everyone I knew.”

So much for Diet Pepsi.

“We all have a gift,” Heather Lyn said of a flourishing business venture she established earlier this year. “We were put on this earth with a mission. My mission is to help others elevate their health, wealth, and happiness.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.
