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


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


HEART OF GOLD 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Carolina bestselling author Eraina Tinnin’s passion for reading gives way to her gift as an accomplished writer


I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


WONDERFULLY MADE IN GOD 

EIGHT ISN’T ENOUGH — Given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years since she ceremoniously delved off into the ever-so-competitive industry of authorship, it’s safe to assume that Greensboro’s Eraina Tinnin’s best and brightest days as a writer are well ahead of her. Tinnin has contributed mightily to eight books to date.

Eight and counting.

For the record, that is the number of books accomplished Christian-based author Eraina Tinnin has written to date.
And, given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years — particularly since she ceremoniously delved off into the ever-so-competitive industry of authorship — it’s safe to assume that Tinnin’s best and brightest days as a writer are well ahead of her.
“God gave me the vision to write this book in 2014,” Tinnin, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the book that jumpstarted her debut as a bestselling author.
The book to which Tinnin is alluding is spiritually-empowering written work entitled, “Becoming a Beautiful You: 100 Day Devotional,” which officially debuted in March 2015.

A book that is comprised of 128 pages in length, Tinnin’s “Becoming A Beautiful You” is a daily devotional that helps women deal with a variety of strongholds, many of which customarily keep them from living the life they deserve, as mentioned in detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

A book that is comprised of 128 pages in length, Tinnin’s “Becoming A Beautiful You” is a daily devotional that helps women deal with a variety of strongholds, many of which customarily keep them from living the life they deserve, as mentioned in detailed introduction at Amazon.com.

“Women learn how to love themselves from the inside out and to see themselves as God sees them,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Tinnin’s ‘Becoming A Beautiful You.’ “By learning to overcome, with scriptural reference, such issues as fear, doubt, self-love and forgiveness, women will no longer have to live a life of defeat, but can begin to live a life of victory.”

For Tinnin, a native of Dayton, Ohio who resides in Greensboro, North Carolina, she’s been passionate about writing since the days of her youth, an awe-inspiring development that essentially was birthed largely because of her love for reading.


“I have been an avid reader since the age of four. So when God gave me the vision to write, I was surprised. I never thought of myself as an author. I heard God’s Voice. I listened and an author was born.” — Author Eraina Tinnin


And the rest, as they say, was history.

To Tinnin’s credit, in fact, she has composed seven books during a span of just under three years (or between 2017 and 2019).

Interestingly, she produced four books in 2017:

“Healing Toxic Habits” (co-authored)

“Affirmations & Antidotes That Remind Me” (co-authored)

“The Woman Behind The Mask: Identifying The Woman Hidden” (co-authored) and,

“You Are A Gift: A Teen Girl’s Guide to Self-Discovery.”

She then assembled two more books the ensuing year:

“Reflections: I Wish I’d Known: Stories of Hope for Women & Young Women”  (which is a compiler of this anthology) and,

“God Is Able” (co-authored).

This year, Tinnin witnessed the release of Book No. 8 when “I Know Me, I Love Me: 30-Day Journal” debuted.

Much to her delight, all of that writer’s block she once endured is all but a distant memory.

“I began writing the book in 2014,” said Tinnin, referring to her initial project. “I had writer’s block for months. Finally, I asked God what was I supposed to say, because in my mind, I was still an avid reader and not an author.”

As Tinnin had ultimately found out is that because she made her requests known unto God, her Creator subsequently provided her with some life-altering detailed instructions.

“He said it was to be a devotional,” Tinnin explained. “Shortly after, I was able to complete the book and it was published in March of 2015. “(I aspire) to help women overcome areas that may hinder them from being all God called them to be. They are areas that hindered me and with God. I was able to overcome and I’m in the process of being all God created me to be.”

For Tinnin, a native of Dayton, Ohio who resides in Greensboro, North Carolina, she’s been passionate about writing since the days of her youth, an awe-inspiring development that essentially was birthed because of her love for reading.

A “Becoming A Beautiful You” book that has garnered “nothing but positive feedback” — “I’ve received emails and messages about how much my book has blessed people who have read it,” Tinnin added — this East Coast-based author recalls vividly how one reader even deemed it essential to buy another copy for her sister.

Talk about having a massive, kingdom impact as a Christian-based author.

“I began writing the book in 2014,” said Tinnin, referring to her initial project. “I had writer’s block for months. Finally, I asked God what was I supposed to say, because in my mind, I was still an avid reader and not an author.”

“God created me to inspire, encourage, and empower via written word and through speaking,” said Tinnin, who announced the forthcoming release of her ninth book (an anthology entitled, “For The Good: From Tragedy To Triumph,” which will be published later this Fall). “This book has been very instrumental in my purpose.”

Not only that, given the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years since she ceremoniously delved off into the ever-so-competitive industry of authorship, it’s safe to assume this writer’s best and brightest days as a writer are well ahead of her.

North Carolina author Keisha Boatwright inherits beauty for ashes through two compelling books


And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 ESV)


BEAUTY FOR ASHES

TALE OF TWO SEASONS — A native of Newark, New Jersey Keisha Boatwright has contributed mightily to the spiritually-empowering, awe-inspiring book entitled, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose.”

Though she unfortunately had hit a rough spot in her life, Keisha Boatwright was determined not to give up.

Not with so much living well ahead of her.
Consider, for instance, how Boatwright, a Greensboro, North Carolina-area businesswoman, had gone about assessing the remarkably compelling above double image in this very news story.
“It represents how I was fighting an emotional battle and when I made it through how my confidence growth,” Boatwright told Making Headline News during a weekend interview.

BUY AUTHOR BOATWRIGHT’S BOOKS HERE: https://www.soulistickesh.com/

A book that is comprised of 70 pages in length, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” is a collaborative written work that was assembled by four authors.

For Boatwright, amongst the notable factors on which she can appropriately hang her hat is the fact that it was due in large part to her turbulent season in the wilderness that God had, in turn, bestowed upon her a wealth of confidence as a result.

So much, in fact that this beloved Navy veteran deemed it essential to find her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

A native of Newark, New Jersey Boatwright has contributed mightily to the spiritually-empowering, awe-inspiring book entitled, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose.”

A book that is comprised of 70 pages in length, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” is a collaborative written work that was assembled by four authors.

For Boatwright, her valiant contributions to her latest endeavor comes amid a rash of hardships and unfavorable circumstances, past memories that, because of her having steadfastly exemplified some bend-but-don’t-break faith, has ultimately thrust her to a much-anticipated harvest season.

“(God gave me the vision to write this book) when I became an empty nester,” Boatwright said. “It was part of my healing process.”

A 14-year Navy veteran, Boatwright is a certified Yoga instructor (RY-200hr) and is a member of the Bella Hearts nonprofit organization.

A book that made its official debut on the market on September 10, 2018, “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose” represents a compilation of some of the trials and tribulations, many of which have occurred within the individual lives of four women, as mentioned in a detailed introduction at Amazon.com.


“It is their hope that somewhere in these pages, you will find the courage and inspiration to move beyond your pain to your purpose, knowing that after experiencing unplanned and life-changing circumstances — your ‘Unleashed Travails’ has made you a survivor,” said an Amazon spokesperson for this book.


Without question, Boatwright can greatly attest to the notion of what it means to transcend from a season in the dreaded wilderness to a season in which God has ceremoniously made her a survivor.

“(This book is a reminder of how I must) remain true to myself,” said Boatwright, explaining how ‘Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose’ is synonymous to the purpose for which God has created her.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

For Boatwright, her valiant contributions to her latest endeavor comes amid a rash of hardships and unfavorable circumstances, a past memory that, because of her having steadfastly exemplified some bend-but-don’t-break faith, has ultimately thrust her to a much-anticipated harvest season.

Besides “Unleashed Travails: From Pain to Purpose,” Boatwright also played a major role in “The Purposed Woman 365 Day Devotional,” a collaborative Amazon bestseller that made its official release earlier this year.

Not to be outdone, she announced the forthcoming release of her solo-authored project entitled, “Unleashed Travails,” which is scheduled to debut by the end of the year, or “in my time for my birthday (December 5),” she said.

Not to be outdone, she announced the forthcoming release of her solo-authored project entitled, “Picking Up The Broken Pieces,” which is scheduled to debut by the end of the year, or “in my time for my birthday (December 5),” she said.

A 14-year Navy veteran, Boatwright is a certified Yoga instructor (RY-200hr) and is a member of the Bella Hearts nonprofit organization.

On September 14, she will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her books when she participates in the Rockin With The Bellas 5K Run & Walk.

Later that day, she will make an appearance at a Greensboro-area yoga event entitled, “Pain to Purpose.”

Dallas/Fort Worth businesswoman Kendra Burnett defies an array of odds en route to starting Platinum Tax, LLC

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — A native of Dallas who was raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina before returning back to her native establishment, Kendra Burnett is owner and chief executive officer of Platinum Tax, LLC.

DALLAS — As it pertains to broadening one’s horizon and maximizing one’s potential, Kendra Burnett offers a rather unique analogy on such.

Heck, if you listen to her long enough, chances are you’d come away with a newfound disposition on life.

“I firmly believe that we should live like we are writing our obituary,” Burnett, 42, told Making Headline News this week. “Be the person that you want everyone to talk about at your funeral. I want to be phenomenal. I want to be able to encourage others to be phenomenal.”

Having come from what he describes as “very humble beginnings” or the “West Dallas projects,” an economically-challenged housing community from where mother was once evicted, Burnett has gone to great lengths in recent years to create a rather comfortable, wholesome living environment for her and her family.

To her credit, she’s managed to do so, courtesy of her continuous rise in this ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry.

A native of Dallas who was raised in Chapel Hill, North Carolina before returning back to her native establishment, Burnett is owner and chief executive officer of Platinum Tax, LLC.

Located at 600 East John Carpenter Freeway in Irving, Texas, Suite 268 — which is roughly 25 minutes from downtown Dallas — Platinum Tax specialists are widely known for being well-versed in all recent federal and state tax laws to ensure optimal financial benefits during income tax time and all year round, according to a spokesperson at www.platinumtaxllc.com.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — In adopting the mindset of a progressive, thriving businesswoman, Burnett credits the influential impact, perseverance and the solid foundation orchestrated by her mother.

In addition, Burnett, who’s widely known also as an immigration specialist for her company that was established in 2009, offers a full range of tax services that stretches throughout as many as 25 states.

“I have several businesses, but my heart and soul goes into my tax business,” Burnett said. “It has been my ethics that have sustained me all these years to build my clientele.”

Burnett has managed to build a solid rapport with immigrants, which has benefited Platinum Tax mightily and has given way to it having assumed a much different business-oriented landscape than other tax preparation institutions.

“I recently started an immigration service that allows me help immigrants with the filing of forms for various situations,” Burnett explained. “This is my way of helping and educating people of their rights here in this country. Immigrants are a very important part of the U. S. economy. (We) Americans need to be very careful how we treat them.  I recently joined the Latin American Immigration Association to ensure that I stay grounded in helping families stay together.”

MAKING GLOBAL CONTRIBUTIONS — Burnett’s success as an entrepreneur has afforded her the golden opportunities to travel to several U. S. states, even as far as to Nigeria for her business’ “Healing for the Sole” campaign, in which she and her constituents had given away more than 700 pairs of shoes to four different villages.

In adopting the mindset of a progressive, thriving businesswoman, Burnett credits the influential impact, perseverance and the solid foundation orchestrated by her mother.

“I had never seen my mother cry or complain,” Burnett said. “She just made things happen. She raised her own 10 children, three of my father’s family members (that he left with my mom) and several other children in the community. I never knew we were poor, I always thought we were very well off. I learned to not be embarrassed by not having lights or water when it got cut off. We just cooked on the grill or the fireplace.”

LOG ON TO PLATINUM TAX, LLC RIGHT NOW:  www.platinumtaxllc.com.

REMEMBERING DIANE — “My oldest sister, who passed away several years ago, told me how proud she was of me,” Burnett said of her late sister, Diane, who’s featured in this photo. “I never realized how much I needed to hear someone say that. That moment changed my life and made me work harder.”

Interesting enough, that she had entered motherhood at the tender age of 14 didn’t merely prevent her from setting lofty ambitions and making her long-awaited dream as an entrepreneur a reality.

“I was a teen age mother and just decided that I can still be great,” Burnett said. “I went on to college right after high school. I’m now a mother of five children. One is going to school to be a pilot, two have started their own business, and two are still in school.”

As if that isn’t enough inspiration, Burnett’s success as an entrepreneur has afforded her the golden opportunities to travel to several U. S. states and even abroad, most notably to Nigeria for her business’ “Healing for the Sole” campaign, during which she and her constituents had given away more than 700 pairs of shoes to four different villages.

LISTEN TO HER!!! “I was a teen age mother and just decided that I can still be great,” Burnett said. “I went on to college right after high school. I’m now a mother of five children. One is going to school to be a pilot, two have started their own business, and two are still in public school.”

“I bought shoes from Nordstrom Rack, Off Broadway Shoes, Ross and Marshall’s,” Burnett recalled. “I used my own money to fund this trip and I paid for plane tickets for two other people to accompany me. I spent well over $10,000. After reaching out to local news outlets and several talk shows, to no avail, I decided that I had to use my own money.  When ask why I was giving them shoes, I simply replied, ‘Because I love you.’ I was never afraid in Nigeria, even though I was told to be fearful everyone. My plans are to go to Haiti, Cuba and Kenya.”

LIVING HER LIFE LIKE IT’S GOLDEN — “I firmly believe that we should live like we are writing our obituary,” Burnett, 42, told Making Headline News this week. “Be the person that you want everyone to talk about at your funeral. I want to be phenomenal. I want to be able to encourage others to be phenomenal.”

By and large, her valiant contributions as a successful businesswoman and to society practically sums up why as it pertains to broadening one’s horizon and maximizing one’s potential, Burnett has become a mastermind, of sorts, when offering a rather unique analogy on such.

“I get to change people’s lives,” Burnett said. “I encourage all my clients. When they leave my office, they feel like the sky is the limit. The immigration service allows me to touch more lives and also gives my clients easier access to me all year long.”

Spoken like a true, progressive entrepreneur whom, to her credit, has proven time and again that she’s capable of defying the odds — all while figuratively writing her obituary in the process.

An acronym that stands for Black All Year, Burnett’s rising business is widely known for highlighting and paying homage to notable developments involving black history, particularly those historical occurrences he said get overlooked due to black history only being globally recognized for only one month out of the year.

DALLASD’Leon Burnett is what one would consider to be a non-traditional college undergraduate, considering he is 27 years of age.

KOOL KIDS — By and large, he sensed that becoming an entrepreneur would greatly give way to array of opportunity to prosper and excel, especially in this ever-so-competitive, business-oriented era in which we live.

An acronym that stands for Black All Year, Burnett’s rising business is widely known for highlighting and paying homage to notable developments involving black history, particularly those historical occurrences he said had gotten overlooked due to black history only being globally recognized for only one month out of the year.

“Being in the sports world helped me a lot (and allowed me to see so much) as I got to see firsthand the youth and the elderly,” Burnett told Making Headline News this week. “What I saw was so many individuals would go day and night training to be the best athletes. In my mind, I felt if we dedicated half of that to becoming better human beings, the black community would be more united.”

MOM KNOWS BEST — Credit his mother, Kendra Burnett, who’s also an accomplished DFW-area entrepreneur, for instilling in her son the qualities and inspiration to delving off into entrepreneurship.

That practically sums up why Burnett thought it essential to establish B.A.Y., or to appropriately adopt a business-oriented mindset, if you will.

By and large, he sensed that becoming an entrepreneur would greatly give way to array of opportunities to prosper and excel, especially in this ever-so-competitive, business-oriented era in which we live.

“What I love most about my business is I control my image and the message we put out is our brand,” Burnett explained. “No one can say that an outside hand has an influence. This is a real black owned business.”

Credit his mother, Kendra Burnett, who’s also an accomplished DFW-area entrepreneur, for instilling in her son the qualities and inspiration to delving off into entrepreneurship.

According to D’Leon Burnett, his B.A,Y, clothing line offers clothing and gear for individuals of all ages and genders, although he stressed that certain items may have size limitations.

“Other than that, all items are available for anyone to purchase,” said D’Leon Burnett, a Plano (Texas) East Senior High graduate.

Much to his delight, his dazzling clothing line has afforded him with the golden opportunity to travel to a variety of places throughout the Southern region, most notably to Houston, Shreveport, Louisiana, Monroe, Louisiana, various establishments in Alabama, as well as to his native home state.

“The support has been overwhelming in those areas,” said D’Leon Burnett, adding that along with his flourishing business, he’s looking to assemble a youth basketball team in the coming months, which would allow him to promote his business on a broader platform. “Special thanks to my parents, especially my mother. She is the driving force behind (my success). Last but not least, (I’m grateful my little family that I can call my own. They all motivate me to go the moon and back daily.”

Not to mention help enhance his young life for the better.
