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.

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

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.

Houston entrepreneur Kevin D. Walls is as good as advertised as a credible, flourishing financial planner

DALLAS — Just after midday on Sunday, Kevin D. Walls jumpstarted the final full week of July by posing a rather thought-provoking inquiry to his somewhat sizable gallery of social media followers.

Said Walls in a Facebook post that was accompanied by a pair of inspiring hashtags: “What fear will you let go of this week?”


WALLS OF SUSTAINED SUCCESS 

CARRYING OUT HIS VISION — Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience in is surely one ever-so-competitive industry, Houston businessman Kevin Walls’ primary objective through his venture is centered largely on training people on what he deems “smart financial principles,” as well as connecting what he respectfully labels the “average person” to his financial experts as a strategic way to aid them in managing their finances much like an expert “without having to become one,” he explained.

“Well, I don’t know if it was a competitive drive, because I am competitive,” Walls, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said when asked how did his competitive drive in life propel him for his business venture. “I think it was more so my spirit of wanting to share my financial knowledge and experiences with others so they can know that they too can win financially.”

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to his immeasurable track record as a financial guru that has greatly enabled Walls, 51, to function mightily in his distinct element as a credible retired accountant, who assumes the notable role as a financial planner.


MORE ON HOUSTON ENTREPRENEUR KEVIN D. WALLS: www.KevinDWalls.com

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having been teaching financial principles for more than two decades, Walls has been active consistently in building networks for over 11 years.

Armed with a wealth of knowledge and experience in what is surely one ever-so-competitive industry, Walls’ primary objective through his venture is centered largely on training people on what he deems “smart financial principles,” as well as connecting what he respectfully labels the “average person” to his financial experts as a strategic way to aid them in managing their finances much like an expert “without having to become one,” he explained.

In a nutshell, what it all boils down to, Walls emphasized, is strategically devising ways to help and inspire his clients to possess and savor a carefree life, courtesy of good money management.

UNIVERSAL IMPACT — A Houston-based company that has made some favorable strides since its inception, Walls business venture services mostly individuals ranging in ages 25 to 65. Interestingly, this Houston Willowridge High School Howard University alum has had the luxury of building networks in as many as 17 U. S. states, as well as the District of Columbia, Japan and Canada.

“I love being able to help make people’s lives be better, because I think it’s the irrefutable basics of business,” Walls said. “If you’re not doing that then, in my opinion, you’re not in business.”

Talk about having an international impact — this after, well, letting go of his fears way back when.


“If I could only share one thing with you about me, it would be that I believe in the value of relationships. I genuinely love people. I believe there is only one business on Planet Earth — making someone’s life better.” — Houston Businessman Kevin Walls 


That, after all, practically sums up why achieving customer services goals and objectives is extremely vital to Walls, who credits Jesus Christ, his wife, Esther, as well as a host of friends and loved ones — most notably Jim Rohn, Dexter Yager, John Cummuta, Les Brown, Brian House, Terrance Hawkins, Tim Sales, Jordan Goodman, and Robert Kiyosaki — as amongst those who have inspired him to go forth with his business-related dreams and ambitions.

“I am also very diligent about my commitment to deliver extraordinary results for those I choose to work with,” Walls said. “Spectacular and life-changing results are what I help people achieve. Anything short of that is unacceptable to me. I take this commitment and relationship very seriously. Because of this I will also expect a serious commitment from those I work with as well — in effort and investment.”


WE ARE FAMILY 

FAMILY-LIKE ATMOSPHERE — “I love being able to help make people’s lives be better, because I think it’s the irrefutable basics of business,” Walls said. “If you’re not doing that then, in my opinion, you’re not in business.”

Having been teaching financial principles for more than two decades, Walls has been actively consistent in building networks for over 11 years, he said.

In addition, he host a weekly financial webinar event that airs every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. CST at MakeWealthRealWebinar.com.

“I just feel like a person can succeed financially,” Walls said. “People just need to be aware and learn financial principles conceptionally and then be given affordable access to experts that execute their financial plan for them. People are lying to them and it’s costing them a fortune.


MAN ON A MISSION 

MAKING MUCH NOISE — A Houston-based company that has made some favorable strides since its inception, Walls business venture services mostly individuals ranging in ages 25 to 65.

“I know that’s a bold statement. I know that it’s not their fault that they are in the financial state they are in,” Walls continued. “They have cleverly been seduced by the Alliance of 4, using a process call AIDA. I feel it’s my fiduciary duty to not only bring awareness, but also an affordable solution.”

All the while greatly empowering people on the importance of letting go of fear.

This week and beyond.

Breast Cancer Survivor Establishes Global Presence Offering Transformational Health and Wealth Services


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS NEW YEAR 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


What better way to kick off the New Year than by establishing a plan to upgrade your health and financial status?

That’s what breast cancer survivor and Detroit-area businesswoman Nicole Pettiway has become most noted for doing — strategically helping busy professional men and women achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals.

“I believe all women and men deserve to have vibrant health and financial freedom,” Pettiway told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

CHANGING A GENERATION 

MAJOR MILESTONE — Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of more than two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers professional men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of over two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

The Health and Wealth Company is geared towards empowering men and women with the skills and support to achieve vibrant health as well as tools to make wise economic decisions through private or group coaching programs and workshops. These online or local programs use two strategic frameworks: 7 Keys to Vibrant Health and 6 Keys to 6+ Figures, with the mission to empower “health-conscious and financially focused men and women” to take control of their health and finances in order to achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals. Pettiway tailors her programs to fit the health or financial goals of her clients.

Pettiway’s journey to pursuing a business venture in the health and financial industries stemmed from overcoming adversities in her own journey.

“The blueprints I share with my clients are the same blueprints that I used on my own journey with overcoming breast cancer and getting on the road to financial freedom,” said Pettiway. “…by providing transformational health and wealth coaching programs that use the blueprints for vibrant health and financial freedom.”

Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.


APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

“I was raised to be the best at my craft and to be self-sufficient,” Pettiway said. “With those traits and my upbringing, I had no choice but to succeed.”

Pettiway’s fervent quest to raise the bar as a thriving businesswoman undoubtedly has benefited her greatly since first setting foot into the world of entrepreneurship.

“I have never been afraid to go against the norm when I believe in something wholeheartedly. I am certain this is why God started preparing me in 2016 for what has become my next assignment. Until 2016, I was on a forward trajectory to becoming a C-Level Executive in Corporate America with a stellar career, awards, and accolades behind me,” said Pettiway.


Pettiway ultimately discovered God’s altered plans to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

POISED FOR A TURNAROUND — Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.

“In 2016, I was introduced to personal finance in-depth, both as a consumer and an entrepreneur,” said Pettiway, recalling the time she joined myEcon, the Personal Financial Success Company.

“My position as an independent contractor with myEcon gave me my first exposure to entrepreneurship and I fell in love (with it).”

“I was personally mentored by multi-millionaires and personal finance experts,” Pettiway said.  “Being able to vastly improve my finances and help other families do the same became my new passion and pursuit.”

ON CENTER STAGE — For what it’s worth, even when adversity surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing her a way of escape.

“It was at this time when my career goals shifted from working in Corporate America and helping businesses thrive to helping improve the lives of families across America using what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy’,” said Pettiway.

For what it’s worth, even when adversity had surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing for her a way of escape.

“God wasn’t finished with me yet,” said Pettiway, recalling the challenges of 2017, during which she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “This became the biggest battle of my life. Through divine intervention, I was exposed to alternative and holistic medicine, and I made the decision to forego chemotherapy and radiation and use my body’s natural ability to heal.”

“This required substantial changes in my lifestyle – a total mind, body, and spirit makeover,” Pettiway continued. “I believe God knew that I would be up for the challenge, so I forged ahead and made massive changes in my life. I had surgery to remove the tumor, and I am blessed to proclaim as of August 2018 that I have no signs of cancer in my body.” Losing 82 pounds and getting back to her high school size was an added bonus of Pettiway’s breast cancer journey.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today Pettiway is basking in the glory of her entrepreneurial element with God, her Helper, leading the way. Nicole’s flourishing business and inspiring healing journey is fully supported by her loving husband Hermen, and their two adult children Kevin and Kirsten.

Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix early in her career, Pettiway took the leap later in her career to become a Certified Functional Health Coach through the Institute for Functional Health Coaches.

GOD’S PLAN — As Pettiway discovered, God altered her career-related plans only to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

As a long-time Portfolio Manager, she is also a certified Project Management Professional (or PMP) through the Project Management Institute and serves as a mentor for the We Build Character Leadership Program and for Detroit Cornerstone Schools.

“On my healing journey, I immersed myself in holistic medicine by reading books, articles, and journals, attending conferences, meeting with experts in the industry, and joining a number of holistic healing support groups,” said Pettiway, whose business venture accommodates health-conscious men and women.

“I started blogging about my journey to raise awareness that our bodies are magnificently designed and that we are capable of overcoming chronic illnesses through natural means.”


DESTINY STEPS 

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix early in her career, Pettiway took the leap later in her career to become a Certified Functional Health Coach through the Institute for Functional Health Coaches. She is also a certified Project Management Professional (or PMP) through the Project Management Institute and serves as a mentor for the We Build Character Leadership Program and for Detroit Cornerstone Schools.

“God revealed my next assignment, which was to become the person I needed on my healing journey – a health coach,” Pettiway said. “I have a passion for both health and wellness and personal finance.”

It wasn’t long thereafter that The Health and Wealth Company was born.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Pettiway expresses her passion for helping others. “I love witnessing the transformation of my clients as they shift their mindset, unlearn the things that were hindering them, and propel forward on the road to vibrant health and financial freedom.”

“As a breast cancer survivor, I believe that people can overcome chronic illness and attain optimal health by learning the root causes and applying holistic and integrative solutions. As a person who was once drowning in debt and in bankruptcy, I believe that people can attain financial freedom by learning and applying what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy.’”

Houston’s Kateri McKnight savoring the best of both worlds as an entrepreneur, accomplished author


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES KATERI T. MCKNIGHT


DALLAS — Kateri 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.

Not only that, McKnight has deemed it essential to go to great lengths to reach back and help like-minded individuals to follow suit.


RAISING THE BAR 

WOMAN OF DISTINCT POWER — Houston businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight 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.”

“My personal mission is to empower and inspire those to open their hearts in order to open their minds to reach out to others with their writing skills,” McKnight told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

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.

“I love the fact that I am able to pace my own creative flow and open others to do the same,” said McKnight, when asked what she loves the most about her business. “The very moment my clients have that rush of creative spark is when the flow becomes automatic and the inspiration becomes more infused into the work being completed.”

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.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — 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.

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.

That’s because she recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.”

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.”

Houston’s Tamara Washington overcomes the spirit of fear, makes her authorship debut as a result


For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. (2 Timothy 1:7 KJV)


DALLAS — Tamara Washington, at one point in time, admittedly was uncomfortable.

Very, very uncomfortable, she recalls.

“I didn’t feel comfortable sharing with those around me,” Washington, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, recalling her assortment of challenges as it pertains to sharing her personal testimonies. “So it made things more challenging to overcome. Now, I’m seeking to encourage someone’s heart so they would know they’re not alone.”


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

SMILING HER WAY THROUGH — In making her authorship debut, Tamara C. Washington has appropriately disclosed her testimonies and valiant contributions to book entitled, “I Rise: Living Beyond The Bruises.”

Fortunately for Washington, she’s been afforded the ideal platform whereby she has displayed a great deal of transparency.

In making her authorship debut, Washington has appropriately disclosed her testimonies and valiant contributions to book entitled, “I RISE: Living Beyond The Bruises.”

A book that is forwarded by accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author, empowerment extraordinaire, and Kilgore Publishing founder Precious S. Brown, “I RISE: Living Beyond The Bruises” made its presence on the market on December 17.


PURCHASE “I RISE” RIGHT HERE: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07LBMFQP7

“I’ve had the desire to write a book for a long as I can remember,” Washington, a native of Cade, Louisiana — “Some the greatest things have come from some of the smallest places on the map,” she said of her rural hometown — who currently resides in the Houston area. “I recall having the desire to write a book as early as my adolescent years. So what was simply a desire has become reality.”

As for the divine message she aspires to send to her reading audience through “I RISE,” Washington emphasized, among other things, that, “It is nearly impossible to have healthy relationships with others when you’re separated from yourself within.”

Now that her published work has come to fruition, not only has Washington broken out of her comfort zone — both in the natural and spirit — but, to her credit, she’s going to great lengths to help others with similar personalities to follow suit.

CREATING A LEGACY — Now that her published work has come to fruition, not only has Washington broken out of her comfort zone — both in the natural and spirit — but, to her credit, she’s going to great lengths to help others with similar personalities to follow suit.

“I began writing the book for the purpose of helping people,” Washington explained. “I’ve often had the experience of feeling alone when going through life’s situations.”

In a detailed breakdown of “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” at Amazon.com, this awe-inspiring and compelling written document is a collaboration of  women, each of whom have worked diligently to overcome insecurities, shame, identity crises, uncertainties and more.

“As you turn the pages of this book, you will gain hope and encouragement to overcome the obstacles you face,” said a spokesperson for Brown’s book, which is her ninth published work to date.

For Washington, while her contributing piece to “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” is her first published work, it certainly isn’t her last, she acknowledged.


“I plan to write multiple books to elaborate on several topics that were briefly mentioned in ‘I RISE.'”  — Author Tamara C. Washington 


RISING STOCK — A book that is forwarded by accomplished Flint, Michigan-based author, empowerment extraordinaire, and Kilgore Publishing founder Precious S. Brown, “I Rise: Living Beyond The Bruises” made its presence on the market on December 17.

Much to her delight, Washington has become the beneficiary of an array of positive feedback since the release of “I RISE.”

“I anticipate receiving lots of feedback” said Washington, adding that her grandest supporters have been her local church, as well as her Pastor and spiritual father, Apostle Dr. W. E. Brown.

“I would also like to give special thanks to the leaders of Covenant Temple Churches Worldwide for their unconditional love, support, prayers, and guidance throughout the years I’ve been a part of their ministry,” Washington continued.

MORE TO COME — For Washington, while her contributing piece to “I RISE: Living Beyond the Bruises” is her first published work, it certainly isn’t her last, she acknowledged.

For what it’s worth, amongst the factors about which Washington is mostly proud is this anthology has created an international buzz since its much-anticipated release.

“(This book) will reach many all over the world,” Washington said. So this project has given me the ability to share my testimony with the word of the Lord in mind. My desire is to reach the hearts of many that they, too, would ask the question: ‘What must I do to be saved?’”

St. Louis author/educator Seletha Tucker attracting a wave of media coverage with four books and counting


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SELETHA TUCKER


DALLAS — Seletha Marie Head Tucker’s authorship resume is such that she’s walking steadfastly in the divine purpose for which God created her.

Especially during a notable stretch that spans somewhere in the neighborhood of six years.

That’s because between October 2012 and August 2018, Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.


TEACHER’S BOOK FAIR 

DESTINY STEPS — Between October 2012 and August 2018, St. Louis author Seletha Marie Head Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.

A St. Louis-based writer — by way of Memphis — Tucker’s latest book is entitled, “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?”

A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged had come full circle amid much reflection and brainstorming.

A MUST READ — A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged was proceeded by much reflection and brainstorming.

“I began to think about some of the things that I have been through and others have gone through, and God began to deal with me about telling my story to help others women, not just single (women), but those who feel like they have to go all out to find a husband,” Tucker told Making Headline News this week. “You hear so much about women trying to find their Boaz when the Bible says, ‘he that finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor of the Lord.’”

To her credit, Tucker has gone to great lengths through her latest book to caution women, most notably those who harbor the lofty expectation of attracting what they describe as that “perfect man” or their “Boaz,” as she appropriately singles out in her newest book.


“Many want that man to be the perfect guy, coming to them and often they are not prepared for that man, because of past relationships, hurts, and even soul ties. I want to encourage women and also help them understand what can happen when you don’t seek God for yourself and also prepare yourself for being a spouse.” — Author Seletha Marie Head Tucker 


BUY SELETHA’S FIRST BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Its-Time-Pray-Lord-Teach/dp/1478719087

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING — A 44-page written document, Tucker’s “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray” has been overwhelming dubbed a “must read,” considering it is a rather uplifting book filled with fervent prayers, many of which are accompanied by what this writer refers to as “promises to inspire, encourage, uplift, and to give you strength to make it one more day,” according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s book in an Amazon.com synopsis.

Prior to connecting with her vision to assemble a “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” book that was officially released on August 2, Tucker had authored three other books.

A longtime educator, Tucker made her authorship debut in October 2012 when she witnessed the release of her first book entitled, “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray.”

A 44-page written document, Tucker’s “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray” has been overwhelming dubbed a “must read,” considering it is a rather uplifting book filled with fervent prayers, many of which are accompanied by what this writer refers to as “promises to inspire, encourage, uplift, and to give you strength to make it one more day,” according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s book in an Amazon.com synopsis.


BUY SELETHA’S SECOND BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Hat-Melinda-Fighting-Leukemia-Together/dp/162086164X

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively for children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.

In a nutshell, Tucker’s initial book is comprised mostly of prayers for practically every occasion, special days, or even that special person in your life, she acknowledged.

Then there is Book No. 2, this one that is entitled, “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together.”

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively to children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and it depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.


BUY SELETHA’S THIRD BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Stephens-Presentation-Seletha-Tucker/dp/1620867265

Not to be outdone, Tucker assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

While anxiously awaiting the last days of school before summer, Andrea finds that Melinda is not in school. What happens will both amaze and excite you as you learn about the importance of true friendship, according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” at Amazon.com.

Not to be outdone, Tucker then assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

For Tucker, an elementary school teacher in St. Louis metropolitan area who has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, she always sensed that she would ultimately delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

STAY TUNED — Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

“I began writing years ago and started sending out prayers,” said Tucker, who’s currently pursuing a Master’s in Special Education.” One of my sisters and husband suggested writing a book of prayers and I finally did in October 2012.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and late father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

That’s not all, said Tucker, whose authorship tenure has given away to her having attracted a wave of exposure through the mainstream media.

“I am in the midst of publishing my first novel, which should be out by the beginning of the year entitled, ‘Cotton Pickin Southern Belle,’” Tucker said.

Dallas/Fort Worth author T. L. Adams’ ‘Get Rid Of Your Stupid List’ book is a constant page turner


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES AUTHOR T. L. ADAMS


DALLAS — T. L. Adams is a writer.

A pretty darn good and resourceful one, to be more technical.

To her distinctly unique credit, she has a few good reasons why she has appropriately adopted a passion for writing, most notably through the ever-so-competitive authorship industry.

“Writing about my life and short stories are therapy to me,” Adams, an accomplished author who’s widely known as ‘Tynisa Adams,’ told Making Headline News during a recent interview.


CONNECT WITH AUTHOR T. L. ADAMS VIA FACEBOOK: https://www.facebook.com/authortladams/

SHE’S AIN’T STUPID — A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Dallas/Fort Worth-area author T. L. Adams is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Get Rid Of Your Stupid List: Seven Reasons You Are Successful And Still Single,” a 112-page written document that officially hit the market in July 2017.

As Adams acknowledged, it wasn’t until after her divorce that she consequently returned to dating, a trend that essentially fueled her fervent desire to compose her assortment of experiences in the form of a book.

“After my divorce was final, I knew I had to write about my experiences,” Adams said.

She did just that, having produced a book that not only details her slew of life-changing encounters, but also one that is enabling others to assess the overall landscape of their lives — particularly as it relates to interpersonal relational skills.

A native of Kansas City, Missouri, Adams is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “Get Rid Of Your Stupid List: Seven Reasons You Are Successful And Still Single.”

Armed with a wealth of beauty, Adams is a divorced mom of two children whom, as a gifted author, deemed it essential to share before the world a variety of issues, particularly as it pertains to dating – most notably various forms of pain, frustration, and disappointment.

“Her mission is to help women self-reflect and look at the real reasons that have kept them single,” according to a spokesperson for Adams’ ‘Get Rid of Your Stupid List!’ in a detailed breakdown of her book at https://www.archwaypublishing.com/Bookstore/BookDetail.aspx?BookId=SKU-001111710. “She presents a series of principles she has adopted in order to change her way of thinking and behavior in order to achieve different results. Adams breaks down the various factors that have kept her and other women single, and she shares dating tips that helped her make better choices and life lessons she learned on her dating journey.”

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — As Adams acknowledged, it wasn’t until after her divorce that she consequently returned to dating, a trend that essentially fueled her desire to compose her assortment of experiences in the form of a book.

But understand this notion also: Adams emphasizes, among other things, that she isn’t merely pinning blame on men as to why she’s presently single.

So don’t get it twisted.


“The book was written to encourage, motivate, and help others reflect on their decisions when it comes to dating. One thing that sets this book apart is that I am not blaming men as to why I am single. I blame myself. I use my story from being married to now divorced, starting over with dating to help others who has had to start over too.” — Author T. L. Adams


All things considered, “Get Rid Of Your Stupid List: Seven Reasons You Are Successful And Still Single” is not a man-bashing book, Adams acknowledged without hesitation.


DON’T BE SO STUPID

IT’S ALL GOOD — As expected, Adams has become the beneficiary of some favorable feedback since the much-anticipated release of a Get Rid Of Your Stupid List book that is comprised of 112 pages in length.

“This book comes from a counselor’s perspective,” Adams said of a book that officially made its presence on the market on July 13, 2017. “This book will help you reflect your decisions when it comes to dating and relationships. This book will show you the bad decisions I have made and what I am doing now to make better decisions when it comes to dating.”

Having earned both an MBA and a Master’s in Counseling and currently pursuing a Doctorate in Psychology, Adams doesn’t shy away from the notion that her first book undoubtedly is a part of the purpose for which God has created her.

“I believe that this book is a part of the purpose for which God created me, because it is an avenue to share my personal experiences, going through a divorce and starting over in the dating scene,” Adams said. “I share my failures and job loss, (which is) my motivation to push myself the way I do. We all have a story to share and publishing a book, talking about my dating life will help others avoid the mistakes I have made by choosing the wrong guys (I chose) in my life.

ISN’T SHE LOVELY? Armed with a wealth of beauty, Adams is a divorced mom of two children whom, as a gifted author, deemed it essential to share before the world a variety of issues, particularly as it pertains to dating – most notably various forms of pain, frustration, and disappointment.

 

“I believe that going from married to single is a hard transition in itself, but I believe that in everything (I’ve done), I have learned many lessons throughout this process that I wanted to share with others.”

She’s done just that, courtesy of what undoubtedly is a must-read book, one whereby she’s holding herself accountable as to why she’s single — at least for the time being.

“In my book, I own that I am the reason I am single,” Adams said without hesitation once again. “As I talked with different females, I realized there is a trend of successful single women. I was trying to figure out what the problem was. It came down to the list. Our list has prevented us from being in relationships because we are looking for Mr. Perfect, and we need to realize that it does not exist.”
