Once a high school dropout, Texas businesswoman Felicia Jeffries becomes a successful, educated entrepreneur


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


REPRESENTING ‘DA SIP’

SEASON OF BLESSINGS — A native of Holly Springs, Mississippi, Felicia Jeffries, 39, is an accomplished business and credit consultant as the mastermind behind Moore Financial Services, a board certified credit consultant endeavor that has greatly afforded her the golden opportunity to reap her share of sustained success.

DALLAS — One thing about Felicia Jeffries, she undoubtedly knows her God-given worth.

That is why come hell or high water, she’s become destined to possess and savor the abundant life that Christ came to give her.
“God put me here for that purpose,” Jeffries, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining why it is imperative to esteem others daily. “The law of nature shows that the universe and nature works by cooperation and support. Human beings, when in a healthy, cooperative environment with support and love, can thrive and reach unsurpassing heights.
“I want to be the reflection of God’s light and help others see His grace and mercy through me in everything I do.”
To Jeffries’ credit, she certainly has proven to be a “reflection of God’s light,” particularly through her valiant contributions as a successful Dallas/Fort Worth-area businesswoman.

Widely known amongst her peers as “The Business Whisperer,” Jeffries has developed a keen passion for helping business owners repair their personal credit — this after she spent a considerable amount of time as a paralegal some nine years ago.

Then, three months after having starting college, Jeffries expanded her business-related repertoire when she assumed a position for a business and bankruptcy attorney.

As Jeffries recalled, her quest to fulfilling her God-given purpose arose amid a rather disheartening development involving one of the clients of an attorney.

“We got a case from a young black boutique owner who was being sued by a large leasing company for being unable to pay her rent,” Jeffries explained. “She went five months without paying rent, because it was too expensive for her business’ budget. The leasing agency wanted payment in full. She couldn’t produce it, so they sued her.”

Jeffries, in fact, had essentially become affected by the client’s unfortunate situation.

“She walked into the office, crying with no money for an attorney,” Jeffries said. “So the attorney took the case Pro Bono (for free). The attorney reviewed the lease looking for loopholes and told the client she owed the money, because there were no loop holes. So we filed for bankruptcy.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

“Since I knew about business credit and how its built on the EIN and not the owner’s social security number, I started separating business owners from their companies, not only to have the limited liability protection, but also to be able to obtain more borrowing power, to have that competitive edge to obtain those large corporate and government contracts, and just be all around credible,” said Jeffries, the author of the newly-produced book entitled, “Diary of Your Favorite Animals Near Extinction: Volume 1.

“The client wanted her merchandise out of the store,” Jeffries continued. “The leasing company wouldn’t release it. The attorney had to file a motion for the company to release the merchandise. They fought the motion, but our client won; however, the leasing agency’s representatives were angry. They called the client in the middle of the night and told her to pick up her stuff.

“The client arrived to the locked store with her merchandise sitting outside in black garbage bags…about $25,000 in merchandise. Not only that, they had poured oil on her merchandise. What they didn’t pour oil on, they broke. The attorney sued the leasing agency, but because it is a multi-billion dollar company, they fought against that lawsuit until the client finally just gave up and disappeared.”

It was, in fact, because of that downtrodden situation that Jeffries had become even more inspired to make a difference in her selected industry.

“Seeing this case made me want to help people repair their credit,” Jeffries said. “So I started a consumer credit repair firm after receiving the education to repair credit.”

Fortunately for Jeffries, a host of business owners began soliciting her services to have personal credit restored for their respective businesses.

MAKING STRIDES — Jeffries eventually earned her GED in 1998. Approximately 12 years later, she her garnered an undergraduate degree in Legal Studies, and in 2011, she would become fully certified as a credit consultant. Not to be outdone, Jeffries received certification from UCLA for Global Entrepreneurship in 2016 and earned certification in grant writing the following year.

For this native Mid-Southerner, her rise to entrepreneurial success didn’t come easily, considering Jeffries dropped out of high school during her sophomore.

Luckily for her, someone was able to see her potential long before she ever discovered it.

“My former best friend’s mother saw our lives going nowhere and signed us up for Job Corp,” Jeffries said.

Talk about pulling off a dramatic comeback for the ages in this thing called life.

“Although, I am not perfect, I strive to be the type of human I would want my daughter to be,” Jeffries said.

To her credit, she’s doing just that, leading by example to the fullest.

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Memphis author Shelia Sewell’s authorship debut has been nothing short of remarkable

KEEPING IT 100

HOLDING IT DOWN — A native of Natchez, Mississippi — a rural town that rest on the mighty Mississippi River and is comprised of roughly 15,792 residents, according to the latest U.S.  census — Shelia Sewell is a Memphis-based writer who authored the eloquent and compelling book entitled, “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies.”

Don’t get it twisted.

Shelia Sewell isn’t merely boasting or bragging.

Because as she often tells it, she didn’t just aspire to become an author for the sole purpose of saying she’s one.

Rather, she delved off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship so that she could — you know — make a notable name for herself.

Not to mention, have a massive impact in the process.

MORE ON AUTHOR SHELIA SEWELL: https://www.facebook.com/authorsheliasewell/

“I feel that I received the vision to write many years ago. As an avid reader, I have always wanted to be an author,” Sewell told Making Headline News this week. “But not just an author; I wanted to be a published author and be able to share my work with as many readers as possible.”

Much to her delight, she’s doing just that, considering she’s enjoyed sustained success as an accomplished writer now that she’s nearly two years removed from having made her authorship debut.

SHE’S JUST WARMING UP — Now that her first book is savoring a considerable amount of success, Sewell has announced that other written projects are forthcoming.

A native of Natchez, Mississippi — a rural town that rest on the mighty Mississippi River and is comprised of roughly 15,792 residents, according to the latest U. S.  census — Sewell is a Memphis-based writer who authored the eloquent and compelling book entitled, “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies.”

A book that was officially released in October 2017 and is comprised of 174 pages in length, Sewell’s “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies” depicts the assortment of developments involving one of its featured character, Sheree, whom this writer describes as “the outspoken teacher.”

ALL IN — “I feel that my book’s message is that life happens,” Sewell, a lifetime member of Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Incorporated, said. “There are situations that we put ourselves in and there are those that are caused by other people. Also, each chapter of my book has a quote or saying that can be useful to what you might be experiencing in your life.”

Meanwhile, this book also introduces us to Shaina, whom Sewell deems “the unhappily married housewife and mother,” and, Morgan, a career-driven attorney, not to mention Maven, whom Sewell refers to as “the bonafide hood-girl-turned-business-owner.”

In essence, they all have been best friends for over two decades and, every Friday night, you can find Sheree, Shaina, Morgan, and Maven sitting at their reserved VIP table at Rico’s, the most popular 30’s-plus lounge in the city, according to detailed breakdown of Sewell’s book at Amazon.com.

“The girls enjoy exquisite cuisine and specialized cocktails while dishing about life, love, and relationships,” said an Amazon spokesperson for Sewell’s “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies.”


YOU GO GIRL!!! 

A book that is nearing the second anniversary since its ceremoniously release, Sewell’s “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies” has been nothing short of remarkable.

“There’s usually no room for secrets among these friends, because they’ve shared everything: the good, the bad, the ugly, and the downright scandalous and illegal. But that is all about to change.”

As Sewell explained, amongst her reasons for composing “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies” is that she’s aiming to dismiss the array of the ongoing stereotypes connected to African-American women.

“I wrote this book, because I felt that as a black mother with so many labels — daddy-less daughter, single-parent household, teenaged mother, survivor of childhood sexual abuse, domestic violence survivor, sister, friend, and more — I had a unique way of being able to channel all of my experiences into one great work of fiction. I also know that the lives of the characters are real. The challenges that they face in their personal, professional, and family lives are ones that women face every day.”Author Shelia Sewell

A graduate of the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, Sewell began writing her latest book approximately a decade ago, during which she had written sparingly.

“When I moved to the Memphis area in 2013, I had only written about 10-to-12 chapters,” Sewell recalled. “Every time that I would try to write over the years, life got in the way.”

As Sewell acknowledged, it took a freak accident to transpire, which, as a result, fueled her desire to get the book finished.

“In the summer of 2015, I ended up with a hurt back,” Sewell said. “I literally sat in my living room and wrote 22 chapters. I finished the remaining eight chapters for my 40th birthday in October 2015.”

HOT READ — A book that was officially released in October 2017 and is comprised of 174 pages in length, Sewell’s “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies” depicts the assortment of developments involving one of the featured character, Sheree, whom this writer describes as “the outspoken teacher.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

A book that is nearing the second anniversary since its ceremoniously release, Sewell’s “Love, Lies, & Loyalty: Rico’s Girls’ Philosophies” has been nothing short of remarkable.

Now that her first book is savoring a considerable amount of success, Sewell has announced that other written projects are forthcoming.

“I am currently working on my second book,” she said. “It will be published in the fall.”

One that, in all likelihood, figures to be nothing short of remarkable upon its much-anticipated release.

So don’t get it twisted.

Houston entrepreneur Sherry Burks making her presence felt through the popular London Kouture Virgin Hair

Canton, Mississippi is a small, rural Madison County town that is widely known as the place where the prominent gospel group, The Canton Spirituals, was established.


REPRESENTING THE “SIP” IN TEXAS

REPRESENTING THE MAGNOLIA STATE — A proud native of Canton, Mississippi, Texas businesswoman Sherry Burks is widely known for being a fixture for London Kouture Virgin Hair, an up-and-coming venture she is afforded the golden opportunity to provide efficient and reliable customer service, particularly as it relates to educational and quality hair.

A proud native of Canton, Burks is widely known for being a fixture for London Kouture Virgin Hair, an up-and-coming venture she is afforded the golden opportunity to provide efficient and reliable customer service, particularly as it relates to educational and quality hair.

For Burks, the mastermind behind the popular London Kouture brand, that she has found her niche in the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship has benefited her mightily in recent years, in large part because starting her own business had always been one of her grandest long-term ambitions.

“I’m from a small town, Canton, Mississippi, and I didn’t have a role model,” Burks told Making Headline News this week. “I was self-driven to be an entrepreneur.”

TEXAS-SIZED IMPACT — For Burks, her sustained success as a well-established business owner goes back to her childhood days as a youngster in the small town of Canton, where God had strategically handpicked her to accomplished big things in Texas — and beyond.

To her distinctly unique credit, Burks never shied away from her monumental dreams of becoming her own boss. Heck, if nothing else, all she’s done since erecting her London Kouture Virgin Hair venture is see to it that she steadfastly do things big in Texas — and beyond.

“I’ve visited many cities,” Burks said of a London Kouture Virgin Hair business that is steadily attracting more of a global presence. “My favorite is Los, Angeles, Atlanta, and Las, Vegas.”

Interestingly, that Burks has successfully gotten her business off the ground and on what is shaping up to be a global landscape, she has been destined to add yet another endeavor to her immeasurable entrepreneurship repertoire.

“My personal mission is solely to start a non-profit organization to help ladies of all ages across the world,” said Burks whom, just last week was a guest speaker on www.Gospelnation.com, during which she discussed her rise as a notable entrepreneur and advocate for young ladies who aspire to start their own business.

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES KIMBERLY THOMPSON


Mid-South-area model Kimberly Thompson took time Friday morning to address the media in her quest to emerge victorious, thus come away with a pretty notable and commendable honor.

“Regardless of the outcome of this contest, I truly already feel like a winner,” Thompson told Making Headline News.

Still, credit Thompson for essentially having adopted a winning feeling as she vies for being named the cover tattoo model for Ink Magazine.

VOTE FOR KIMBERLY THOMPSON HERE: https://inkedcover.com/2018/kimberly-glass

SHE NEEDS YOUR VOTE — Credit Jackson, Mississippi native Kimberly Thompson for essentially having adopted a winning feeling as she vies for being named the cover tattoo model for Ink Magazine.

A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential global exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

“Modeling is a career that I have always dreamed of doing,” Thompson explained. “It wasn’t until recently that I made up my mind to take the chance to pursue it.”

For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-pressed to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

TURNING HEADS — A publication that is widely known as a destination to find creative tattoo ideas, the best tattoo artists, photos, and videos of tattooed models, and news on tattooed celebrities, Thompson is overwhelmingly enthralled that she’s in the running to win a contest that could very well provide her the essential exposure she needs in what undoubtedly is a competitive industry.

For starters, she’s clinging to an impressive third place spot in her selected group, one that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

“In order for me to stay in this competition, I have to find ways to increase my votes,” Thompson said without hesitation, yet with such great optimism.

The second round of voting is currently taking place and ends October 9.

If Thompson advances to the third round, she will have emerged as one of 20 models who will still be alive to grace the front cover of Ink.


SO FAR, SO GOOD — Thompson is clinging to an impressive third place in her selected group that is comprised of more than 60 participants, which is good enough to advance her to the pivotal second round.

Only 10 contestants will advance to the fourth round, something Thompson is hopeful she manages to pull off.

Of course, she will need some much-needed help — and votes — from those who have supported her since she elected to delve off into modeling, since she had finally come to grips with the notion that maybe, just maybe she can enjoy a pretty amazing career in this industry.


“You can sometimes be your own worst enemy by putting limitations on yourself. I am just realizing that this was something that I was doing to myself. I have come to the realization that life is what you make it. The mind is a powerful thing.” — Professional Model Kimberly Thompson 


For what it’s worth, that she has already staged an impressive showing in the Ink Magazine contest is a testament of her overall body of work in such a brief timeframe as model.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — For Thompson if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Everyone in life will have a story to tell,” said Thompson, who holds an Associate Degree in Science from Holmes Community College and an RN Associate Degree from Meridian Community College. “As you get older, you began to realize that you never stop learning or striving for something in life. I will never stop striving to better myself.

“The most important testament I have learned is to love all of me,” Thompson added. “This includes my flaws as well as my imperfections. Many of us are scared to have imperfections. But imperfections are used to make you the person you are meant to be. It is a game changer.”

NEW MODEL ON THE BLOCK — For Thompson, a licensed practical nurse whose career spans more than 16 years, one would be hard-press to realize that she’s essentially a newcomer to such popular industry.

For Thompson, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, if she happens to wound up gracing the cover of Ink Magazine as its featured model, not only would it prove to be arguably one of the biggest wins of her life but, most importantly, it would serve as a pivotal reminder that it is never too late to pursue even the largest of dreams.

“Going on age 40, I am starting a new beginning in my life,” Thompson said. A life filled with no walls and limitless possibilities. My phoenix tattoo is a representation of my rebirth. I will continue to rise through the ashes and make my dreams a reality.”

Regardless of the outcome of this contest.

In the meantime, she’s still very much in the running. 

So go vote.

Mid-South entrepreneur Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture creating a national presence

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES CORAL HARRIS-THOMAS


Honey, let Coral Harris-Thomas tell ya…

“When I first put my garment on, I was waiting to see what it was gone do for me,” Harris-Thomas, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, said in a rave review of her products at https://snatchmenow.com/.  “It felt good, it looked good, and my stomach was flat. Oh, but when I looked in the mirror…I’m trying to tell you, I was amazed at how I had just dropped three dress sizes. My posture was straight, and when I walked, it felt as if the garment was carrying me.”

Some pretty remarkably compelling comments by an accomplished businesswoman, who has become a fixture for the internationally-acclaimed venture that is Snatch Me Now.

YOU GO GIRL!!! A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Coral Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Harris will be hosting an event on October 6 at 12:30 p.m. CST, during which she will promote her products. This assembly will take at Home2 Suites by Hilton Memphis-Southaven, located at 6750 Southcrest Parkway in Southaven, Mississippi in the DeSoto Room.

Snatch Me Now’s featured product, at least at this particular time Harris-Thomas told Making Headline News this week, is the Rebirth Body Shapers.

“We also offer Coral’s Cosmetics, too,” said Harris-Thomas, introducing the product that bears her name.

MORE ON CORAL HARRIS-THOMAS: https://snatchmenow.com/

A STEP ABOVE THE REST — A business that has become ever-so-popular, in large part because of its body shapers, undergarment, and women’s clothing, Snatch Me Now specializes largely in helping woman enhance their overall beauty.

Interestingly and much to her delight, it’s seems that Harris-Thomas was built to delve off into the world of entrepreneurship, in large part because, well, it’s in her bloodline.

“I am a fourth-generation entrepreneur, so I am competitive by nature, because I have been around business owners all of my life,” said Harris-Thomas, a doctoral candidate at Cambridge (Massachusetts) College, who also boasts a wealth of experience in the education sector.

Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

C’MON, Y’ALL, C’MON — What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“I like the fact that I am helping others the most (through) my business,” Harris-Thomas said. “When women put on the garment, their confidence increases. When the ladies get made up, they light up like Christmas trees.”

What’s even more intriguing is that Harris-Thomas’ Snatch Me Now venture is committed to snatching people from various walks of life — young and old.

“My business caters to people of all ages,” Harris-Thomas said. “My daughter is 11 years old and she is my youngest client. Today, my oldest client is 81 years old.”

Talk about having a monumental impact, courtesy of a booming business that has allowed this progressive, thriving businesswoman to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display in a variety of places around the country, most notably in Minnesota, Alabama, Texas and, of course, her native home state of Tennessee.

“I have been to a lot of places, because the makeup line division was started by my mother when I was five years old,” Harris-Thomas, the No. 1 sales distributor for the month of August for Rebirth Body Shapers, explained. “My mother was a traveling vendor, so I traveled across country with her every summer.”

Surely, it’s safe to assume that Harris-Thomas has gone to great lengths to ensure that her assortment of business ventures savor sustained success.

Just as her mother taught her years ago.

HEART OF GOLD — Demonstrating a servant’s heart through her business venture is especially vital, Harris-Thomas acknowledged, in part because she’s afforded the golden opportunity to enrich and impact someone’s life, all the while helping to enhance their beauty in the process.

“My mission is to snatch up ask many ladies as I can to help them enhance their natural beauty,” said Harris-Thomas whom, aside from her mother (the late Cora Barley Harris) was greatly inspired by Rebirths CEO Dorothy Cook to pursue her dreams as an entrepreneur.

“They are both strong black women that are great leaders,” Harris-Thomas said.

To her credit, Harris-Thomas is especially grateful of the notion that she’s afforded the notable task of instilling in her daughter the same life-enhancing qualities she acquired from her beloved mother.

So honey, let her tell ya…

“Women go through some much on a daily basis, so it is important to me to uplift as many women as I can on a daily basis,” Harris-Thomas said. “It makes me feel like I am walking in my purpose.”

Just as the late Cora Barley Harris had envisioned all along.

Southern Mississippi businesswoman Michelle Barefoot can be appropriately deemed a serial entrepreneur

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE BAREFOOT


Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Hattiesburg, Mississippi-area businesswoman customarily wears.

For starters, Barefoot is the owner and chief executive officer of Barefoot Footography, LLC, whereby she is the featured photographer and specializes as a graphic artist.

Or as Barefoot eloquently puts it…

DESTINY STEPS — Much to her delight, Michelle Perry Barefoot can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur. Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats this Houston-area businesswoman customarily wears.

“I am an-all occasion photographer,” Barefoot, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, introducing her featured venture that was established in 2008.

Besides being afforded the luxury of displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

A marketing-oriented venture that is powered by what is known as the Plan B Marketing Group, MBarefoot Marketing is comprised of solutions for small businesses and is centered mostly on helping entrepreneurs do their business better.

Also, there is another side of Plan B, Barefoot acknowledged, that is called Plan B Income Solutions, whereby she routinely helps individuals create secondary incomes while working from home on a part-time basis, mostly notably until their residual income will give way to them retiring from their respective jobs.

But wait. That isn’t all that this progressive and resourceful businesswoman does.

That’s because Barefoot is the co-owner of Media Magnets, a business that is centered largely on helping increase individuals and/or business owners’ presence via social media and other public platforms.

BIRTHED FOR SUCCESS — As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“It’s important to keep your message before your intended audience,” Barefoot said. “Not everyone understands the different algorithms associated with Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, etc. We can help by boosting posts, likes, videos, and more, and by teaching people the importance of how to use the different social media platforms such as using hash tags on Instagram to get people engaged in your posts.”

In addition, Barefoot is heavily affiliated with NectarKast, whereby she serves as a Regional Dealer for this proximity marketing company.

“We offer 100 and 300 meters — that is the same as a football field or three football fields in all directions — beacons that help get your message out to where everyone’s eyes are on his or her cell phone,” Barefoot said. “A 40-character message is sent to a Bluetooth activated Android device, and once the message is delivered, the recipient can click on the notification and it will take them to a website, landing page, or even a personal social media page.

A TRUE TALENT — Besides being afforded the luxury of which displaying her immeasurable gift as a graphic artist — which allows Barefoot to customize cards, invitations, stationary, fliers, and more — she is owner of MBarefoot Marketing, LLC.

“These small devices are half the cost of other devices and in an independent study, it works more effectively and efficiently than our competitors devices. My partner and I started with this company because of the vision and the integrity of the developers/owners. “

Also, Barefoot is an Independent Consult for Scentsy.

“To think of the journey I have been on, it nearly wears me out to just think of it,” Barefoot said. “I worked predominantly in the medical field for 24 years with the last ten (years) or so in the mental health arena. The Lord knew what He was doing, placing me in the particular area at that particular time in my life.”

As for what has fueled her desire to delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of entrepreneurship, Barefoot doesn’t shy away from the notion that she essentially was born into it.

“Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Such a trend, to her credit, has benefited her mightily.

How else to explain why she can, by all accounts, be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneurship?

“My resilience comes from the many trials and tribulations I have been through,” Barefoot said. “Many people would not have survived just a few of life’s travesties that have been placed in my way, but the obstacles only caused me to be stronger. God gives His hardest battles to His strongest soldiers and, evidently, He thinks I am one tough soldier.”

HOLDING HER OWN — “Competition runs in my family and in my veins,” said Barefoot, a proud Native American and a descendent of the Tsalagi Nation that is also known as Cherokee (originally AniYunwiya, meaning “real, leading or principal people”). “Growing up with two older brothers, I was subjected to their joking, teasing, and winning was a must. They taught me to be tough and competitive at a young age.”

Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

By and large, amongst the things about which she is especially appreciative is the fact that she is fulfilling the purpose for which God has created her.

How remarkably impressive for this, a well-respected businesswoman, who can be appropriately described as a serial entrepreneur.

“There is so much I love about my businesses,” Barefoot said. “I am thankful I can work from home and work into the night, because I am a night owl and definitely not a morning person. I prefer to get up late and work extra late into the night or early morning.

THE PROVERBS 31 FACTOR — Widely known as amongst her peers as a “Virtuous Woman” — in large part because she has Proverbs 31 tattooed on her wrist to remind her that, ‘Even on my bad days, I have a legacy to leave’ — Barefoot’s emphasized that her businesses cater mostly to people over the age of 18 and have allowed her to travel regularly as a result.

“The diversity also allows me to leave home when I need to and travel if and when it is possible,” Barefoot continued. “I am a self-motivator and I work best alone or with a select few. I am not the ‘work in a cubicle from 9-to-5’ type person. I never have been and never liked that setting.”

Amongst the obvious reasons is that she’s functioning fervently in her element as a progressive, resourceful businesswoman.

Consider, for instance, the assortment of entrepreneurship-related hats she customarily wears in the process.

Texas author Dr. Sylvia A. Cole walking mightily in her purpose with an unprecedented ninth book

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DR. SYLVIA A. COLE  


For the record, Dr. Sylvia A. Cole was only doing that about which God specifically commands us, according to Psalm 105:1.

That is, she was making known His deeds among the people which, much to her delight, isn’t such a bad thing, considering she basking in the glory of her element unlike never before.

“I’m a nine-time published author! Thank you, Lord!” Dr. Cole shared in a spirited Facebook post last week.

TEXAS-SIZE IMPACT — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Houston’s Dr. Sylvia A. Cole, accomplished writer, deems it essential to often share of the goodness of her Creator, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years.
For starters, Dr. Cole is what many would describe as a serial author, in large part because it seems she writes and publishes books at, well…the drop of a dime.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Dr. Cole, accomplished writer, deems it essential to often share of the goodness of her Creator, look no further than the immeasurable strides she’s made in recent years.

For starters, Dr. Cole is what many would describe as a serial author, in large part because it seems she writes and publishes books at, well…the drop of a dime.

Her latest published mastermind: “A Teen’s GPS For Finding Life’s Purpose,” her awe-inspiring project that made its ceremonious presence on the market on August 29, 2018.

For Dr. Cole, a Houston-area author, her latest book is her ninth overall and her fifth in what undoubtedly has been a banner year for this notable and gifted writer.

“I wrote this book, because of my experience of not truly being in purpose until a situation beyond my control pushed me into it,” Dr. Cole, a native of Jackson, Mississippi, told Making Headline News during an interview this week. “I realized for many years while I had success and a very happy life, I was not doing what God created me to do.”

Interestingly, a devout woman of faith who is walking diligently in her divine purpose, it was, by all accounts, because of Dr. Cole’s spiritual crossroads that she began to seek and consult God as only she could.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose as only she could.

“Hence, I wanted to write this book for teens so they could begin to think about purpose now and not wait until life happens,” Dr. Cole said of her latest book. “I wanted to provide them with a thorough guide for being intentional about finding their life’s purpose.”

To her credit, Dr. Cole has done just that through her latest written document — as well as with the previous eight.

Besides “A Teen’s GPS For Finding Life’s Purpose,” Dr. Cole is the mastermind behind these remarkably compelling books:


Speak Believe And Experience the Manifestation of God’s Promises: Faith Confessions For Teens, released in 2018; Speak Believe And Experience The Manifestation Of God’s Promises: Faith Confessions For Singles, released in 2018; Speak Believe And Experience The Manifestation Of God’s Promises: Faith Confession For Women, released in 2018;

I Take God At His Word: How To Trust Him When You Can’t Trace Him, released in 2018; Lay Aside Your Weight And Rest: Finding Peace When Your Burdens Seem More Than You Can Bear, released in 2017; Called 2 Write: A Guide For Writers And Authors, released in 2017; and I Take God At His Word, released in 2015.


THAT’S WHAT FRIENDS ARE FOR — For Dr. Cole, a Houston-area author, her latest book is her ninth overall and her fifth in what undoubtedly has been a banner year for this notable and gifted writer. Amongst her biggest supporter is Carla Jackson, with whom Dr. Cole is pictured.  

As for her latest project, which she says is generating “amazing” feedback, Dr. Coles stresses, among other things, that everyone was created for a purpose.

A divine purpose, that is.

“The Creator has an incredible plan for each of our lives and we should see the bigger picture of what life is all about and begin to live the life we were created to live,” said Dr. Cole said, who is the founder of Girls Prepped 4 Purpose (or GP4P), a nonprofit organization for teen girls ranging in ages 13 to 16. “I do not wish that teens would end up in a place and waste valuable time doing or pursuing something for which they were not created to do. The time is now for teens to find their life’s purpose and this book is their GPS (system).”

SOLID SUPPORT SYSTEM — A book Dr. Cole labels an “expansion” of her first book that was released in November 2014 (“I Take God At His Word), she acknowledged that God revealed to her the book’s title while standing at my mother’s bedside, during which she was in Intensive Care Unit and in a coma for nearly three weeks. Holding Dr. Cole’s latest book is 
Tristan Thigpen. 

And then there is “I Take God at His Word: How To Trust Him When You Can’t Trace Him,” Dr. Cole’s spiritually gut-checking book that made its much-anticipated presence on the market in  March 2018, approximately two months after this writer began composing it.

A book Dr. Cole labels an “expansion” of her first book that was released in November 2014 (“I Take God At His Word), she acknowledged that God revealed to her the book’s title while standing at my mother’s bedside, during which she was in Intensive Care Unit and in a coma for nearly three weeks.


DESTINY STEPS — Dr. Cole is the founder of Girls Prepped 4 Purpose (or GP4P), a nonprofit organization for teen girls ranging in ages 13 to 16.

“My siblings and I agreed to have her weaned off life support,” Dr. Cole recalled, adding that her mother is her No. 1 fan and supporter. “I was on rotation on the 16th day and, as the nurses unplugged her machines, less than five minutes later, she started breathing on her own.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

But God.

That’s just like God.

To God be the glory.

THAT’LL PREACH — “The Creator has an incredible plan for each of our lives and we should see the bigger picture of what life is all about and begin to live the life we were created to live,” Dr. Cole said. “I do not wish that teens would end up in a place and waste valuable time doing or pursuing something for which they were not created to do. The time is now for teens to find their life’s purpose and this book is their GPS (system).”

Now we know why this faith-based, Christian-oriented author customarily finds herself making known His deeds among the people.

“I looked up into the heavens and said, ‘God, I take You at Your Word,” Dr. Cole said. “Hence, this situation beyond my control pushed me into purpose.”
