Is Dallas entrepreneur Sakina G. Jackson the seasoning mix industry’s best kept secret?

OVERFLOW SEASON-ING 

SALT OF THE EARTH — The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Sakina G. Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s fielding orders all across the country.

DESOTO, Texas — Just recently, Sakina G. Jackson took to her Facebook page, where she staged a rather spirited post to her timeline.

Don’t get twisted, mind you. She wasn’t merely bragging.
If nothing else, she was only enlightening the masses of the continuous buzz surrounding what is shaping up to be a globally-acclaimed invention for the ages.
Said Jackson before her hundreds of social media followers: “I’m just saying! Get you some Big Toe Seasonings.”
For what it’s worth, Jackson undoubtedly has earned the right to exemplify such passion for a product that figures to turn heads in countless of households and restaurants for years to come.
Never mind that she senses those avenues by which to start a company is very much like birthing a baby — to put it more appropriately.

“Growing up in a family of seven, five siblings and being a tomboy, winning in life has always been a goal,” Jackson told Making Headline News this week. “I started working in Corporate America in the 90’s as a legal services company (during) which there were many competitors. Learning to be my best in all areas of business was imperative.”

Speaking of being her best, Jackson’s entrepreneurship track record is such that she’s been nothing short of remarkable.

The proud creator and CEO of what is technically known as Big Toe Seasonings LLC, Jackson’s products are steadily attracting more of national presence, considering she’s routinely fielding orders all across the country.

Interestingly, she’s essentially gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in the tri-state areas that’s comprised of Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.

“I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said. “My products have traveled to more places than I have myself have (she continued while laughing).  I am hoping to catch up.”

FINISHED PRODUCT — Because of her impressive Corporate America resume, coupled with a solid support system that’s spearheaded by her parents, Raymond and Bobbie Jackson, as well as her grandmother, Vessie Jackson,  and, most of all, “my big faith in Jesus,” she acknowledged, it’s safe to assume that Jackson’s Big Toe Seasoning’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Most recently, Jackson engaged in a rather festive and intriguing tour she famously dubbed as “FLAVAs,” during which she was afforded golden opportunities to put her immeasurable entrepreneurship skills on display.

As usual, she was as good as advertised, in large part because consumers have come to embrace — and savor — Jackson’s delectable, mouthwatering seasonings, especially her annual holiday season’s faithful three: Lemon Pepper, Creole, and the Big Toe’s ever-so-popular Bless Yo Heart seasoning, a traditionally historic southern catchphrase Jackson’s granddaughter is responsible for having named.

LOCKED AND LOADED — Interestingly, Jackson essentially has gotten a massive portion of the Southern region on lock, most notably in establishments such as Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama. “I was able to visit cities such as Jackson Mississippi, Meridian, Mississippi, Selma Alabama, Monroe, Louisiana, just to name a few…and on to Columbus, Georgia,” Jackson said.

A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained entrepreneurial success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough.

Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

Such an assignment had ultimately lasted some eight years which, to Jackson’s surprise, had given way to her being named Director of Municipal Court.


DID YOU KNOW…


“I do attribute this growth to a manager, who saw my leadership qualities, which quite frankly, stemmed from several years in corporate and my vast entrepreneurial skills,” Jackson said. “Becoming a mother heightened this desire as I wanted my children and grandchildren to know that if they educate themselves in whatever they set out to do in life, they too, can achieve success.  I now have moved into inspiring friends, women, veterans, youth to live their truth.”

FOR STARTERS — A native of Dallas, Jackson’s rise to reaping sustained success comes amid a season during which she had already emerged as a beneficiary of an unlikely breakthrough. Jackson enjoyed a stellar stint in the Corporate America sector when she was promoted to a city government post in nearby Cedar Hill for what was supposed to be a two-week temporary assignment.

So don’t get it twisted.

“In all honesty, I have come to know that how we treat and help one another is a direct correlation with our own joy and happiness,” Jackson said. “A soul that simply exists to please him or herself is usually in my experience a very sad individual…a void of inner joy.  Therefore, I live to inspire others of all ethnic groups, ages, and cultures. It is my truth.”

Bless her ‘lil heart.

Mid-South-area entrepreneur Sham Poore following in her loved ones’ historic footsteps through her catering business

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE — A native of Hollandale, Mississippi, Sham Poore, 30, who currently resides in Olive Branch — or approximately 20 minutes from Memphis — found her passion and niche for cooking while growing up and watching her mother and grandmother service people across the country with their dynamically scrumptious and delectable meals. Poore’s mother, in fact, was widely known throughout the famous Mississippi Delta region for her well-renowned business, Grown Woman Catering, a food-service establishment that has been in operation for more than two decades.

Sham Poore is following in some pretty massive, historic footsteps.

To her credit, she’s doing a pretty masterful job of carrying the family baton in the process.

A rising Mid-South-area businesswoman, Poore — whose actual name is La’Shambriel — is owner and chief executive officer of Dinner Dates Catering, an up-and-coming catering venture in which Poore customarily utilizes what she describes as her “God-given talents” by providing clients excellent food, accompanied by outstanding professionalism and dynamic customer service.

A native of Hollandale, Mississippi, Poore, 30, who currently resides in Olive Branch — or approximately 20 minutes from Memphis — found her passion and niche for cooking while growing up and watching her mother and grandmother service people across the country with their dynamically scrumptious and delectable meals.

Poore’s mother, in fact, is widely known throughout the famous Mississippi Delta region for her well-renowned business, Grown Woman Catering, a popular food-service establishment that has been in operations for more than two decades.

“I’m following in her footsteps, from traveling catering, to preparing meals for celebrities,” Poore told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “It really motivates me to take my business to the highest possible level. As you can see, I am a product of a great line of Southern Chefs.”

FOLLOW SHAM’S DINNER DATES VIA SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.facebook.com/Dinner-Dates-Catering-117980171943233/?pnref=lhc.

To her distinct credit, Poore is certainly holding her own — and making her mother and grandmother proud — as an accomplished chef-turned-businesswoman.

For starters, Poore boasts the educational pedigree, which has greatly enabled her to become knowledgeable about the pros and cons of how to successfully operate a business in this ever-so-popular social media era.

A 2003 Simmons (Mississippi) High School graduate who was her class’ Salutatorian, Poore is a product of Delta State University, where she declared a double major before graduating with degrees in Sports Management and General Business Administration.

Consequently, Poore advanced her education when she enrolled in Clinton, Iowa-based Ashford University, where she ultimately earned a Master’s Degree in Organizational Management in February 2014.

Interesting enough, Poore’s educational accolades have greatly proven beneficial to her, considering Dinner Dates Catering has become a fixture throughout the Mid-South much like her mother’s popular establishment in what Mississippians call the “Sip.”

“The competitive drive in sports taught me discipline, hard work, sacrifice, overcoming adversity, how to deal with success and failure, and the value of practice and preparation,” said Poore, who lettered in varsity at Hollandale and frequently kept stats for the school’s baseball team. “What I like most about my business is meeting new people and seeing their reactions when they taste my food.”

Fortunately for Poore, her food is customarily embraced by people all across the country, most notably as far as Houston, Dallas, Gulfport, Mississippi, and New Orleans.

And, with the summer months approaching, the possibility exists that she will be fielding countless calls from consumers inquiring about her services, which include cooking classes, corporate events, meal prep, weddings, baby showers, birthday parties, social events and festivals, and family dinner preparation for those on the go.

Oh, and let’s not forget dinner dates for those looking to — you know — to set the mood and spice up their love life.

TURNING HEADS — A rising Mid-South-area businesswoman, Poore — who’s actual name is La’Shambriel — is owner and chief executive officer of Dinner Dates Catering, an up-and-coming catering venture in which Poore customarily utilizes what she describes as her “God-given talents” by providing clients excellent food, accompanied by outstanding professionalism and dynamic customer service.

“It is imperative that I esteem and inspire others daily, because I want everyone to fulfill all of their dreams and become extremely successful throughout their lifetime,” Poore said. “I pray that everyone becomes the best versions of themselves they can possibly be. I do traveling catering, meal preparation, complete dinner preparation, healthy alternatives, dinner plates, vegan dishes, as well as single orders.”

Oh, and let’s not forget dinner dates for those looking to — you know — set the mood and spice up their love life.

Young Chicago-area entrepreneur Kayla Adams’ making a name for herself as owner and CEO of ‘Chef Lil Bit’ Enterprises

When she was 13 years old and growing up in Chicago, a majority of Kayla Renee Adams’ peers were doing the things that teenagers are accustomed to doing.

Adams, meanwhile, was on some grown folk stuff.

“I’ve been doing this for about six years now,” Adams said. “I’ve been cooking since I was 13 years old.”

To her credit, Adams’ unique but rare craft at such a young age has benefited her mightily in recent years.

So much, in fact, that her business as a rising professional chef is starting to generate headlines.

GOTTA LOVE GRANDMA — Without question, Adams is spicing things up a young, vibrant, progressive chef, in large part because long ago, she sensed that someday she would follow in the footsteps of her grandmother, Carrie Lee Henderson, whom she credits for inspiring me to cook and to look into becoming a chef.

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Adams, a student at Arkansas Tech University, spoke at length about her the continuous success of her business as a professional chef.

Owner and CEO of Chef Lil Bit Enterprises — formerly Kayrenee Catering — Adams’ flourishing venture has been in operations since 2012.

As the 22-year-old Adams explained, she was a 17-year-old senior in high school at the time she established her business, a masterful development that essentially had come to fruition when — as far as Adams was concerned — opportunity didn’t knock, thus prompting her to create her own door.

YOU GO GIRL!!! Chicago businesswoman Kayla Adams is scheduled to graduate with a degree in Hospitality Administration with an emphasis in Foodservice Management from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville in May 2018.

“I couldn’t find a job in high school so I decided to make one,” Adams said. “During my senior year of high school, every Friday, I would bake between 100-to-150 desserts and, every Saturday morning, I would wake up and go to all of the barbershops and hair salons in my neighborhood to sell my desserts.”

Much to her delight, her tenacity and perseverance for broadening her horizon and maximizing her potential months before making the lofty transition to college have only fueled her competitive drive to stay on top of her cooking game, of sorts.

MAKING MAJOR MOVES — Owner and CEO of Chef Lil Bit Enterprises — formerly Kayrenee Catering — Adams’ flourishing venture has been in operations since 2012.

In March, for instance, Adams added to her entrepreneurship repertoire when she launched her T-Shirt line called, “Live Life With A Little Spice.”

“It means that in order to make it in this world, you have to add a little spice to it,” Adams, whom recently obtained her Certification in Hotel Industry Analytics (or CHIA) and her ServSafe Certified in both Food Handling and Alcohol, explained.

Without question, Adams is spicing things up a young, vibrant, progressive chef, in large part because long ago, she sensed that someday she would follow in the footsteps of her grandmother, Carrie Lee Henderson, whom she credits for inspiring me to cook and to look into becoming a chef.

Interesting enough, it’s safe to assume that entrepreneurship seemingly had always been a trend, particularly amongst Adams’ immediate family members.

Her mother, longtime Chicago journalist and communications specialist Lisa Jenkins, is widely known for having founded Chicago-based KRA Communications in August 2016.

WOMEN OF EXCELLENCE — Interesting enough, it’s safe to assume that entrepreneurship has become a trend, particularly amongst Adams immediate family members. Her mother, longtime Chicago journalist and communications specialist Lisa Jenkins, is widely known for having founded Chicago-based KRA Communications in August 2016.

Jenkins’ media-savvy business is dedicated largely to providing small businesses and entrepreneurs a vast array of services, most notably — but are not limited to — content creation, event planning and management, press release generation, social media campaigns, cover letter and resume updating, as well as an assortment of writing or editing services for consumers.

A RELATED STORY: https://makingheadlinenews.com/2017/03/17/chicago-businesswoman-lisa-jenkins-kra-communications-becoming-a-fixture-in-key-markets-throughout-u-s/.

Like her mother, Adams said what she loves mostly about her business is that she’s afforded the opportunity to make all day-to-day decisions, proving yet again she’s on some grown folk stuff.

“I like that it is my business and I get to make the decisions,” Adams said. “Of course, I am always open to constructive suggestions and criticism, but I’ve always wanted something I could call my own.”

And because of her steadfast commitment to doing business (and academics, of course) in excellence — and staying on her grown folk stuff — Adams is confident her biggest and brightest days are well ahead of her.

STAY TUNED — And because of steadfast commitment to doing things in excellence — and staying on her grown folk stuff — Adams is confident that her biggest and brightest days are well ahead of her.

“It’s imperative that I inspire others daily because everybody has a dream and some people don’t have the motivation of the esteem to go out and do what they love because some people are quick to judge them,” said Adams, who’s schedule to graduate with a degree in Hospitality Administration with an emphasis in Foodservice Management in May 2018. “And I just want everyone to know that you can do anything you set your mind too. Don’t let anything stop you from pursuing your dreams whether it’s age, family, or lack of knowledge.”

Oh, there’s one more thing she’d like to add, so take heed.

“I just want to make people happy one cupcake at a time, one cookie at a time, and one shirt at a time,” Adams said.

All while staying committed to her grown folk stuff.

Memphis’ Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad creating a continuous, massive buzz throughout the Bluff City and Mid-South

 

TEN-NES-SEE AND TASTE THIS CHICKEN SALAD, Y’ALL — An up-and-coming business that is located at 3709 South Hickory Ridge Mall in Suite 460 of the historic Hickory Hill Ridge Mall, Darwin and Kyra Henderson’s Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad has become a popular establishment for Memphians, giving the buzz it has created since its inception a little more than a year ago.

 

Fortunately for Memphis-based entrepreneur Kyra “Sha” Henderson, she thought it essential some time ago to thoroughly embrace the life-changing advice of her husband, Darwin Henderson.

OMG! LOOK AT THIS! Widely considered a “game changer” according to Kyra Henderson, her husband’s delectable, mouth-watering chicken salad has become one of the most sought-after products throughout the Memphis-metropolitan area, let alone a favorite amongst those who weren’t particularly fans of such a food.

That’s because her beloved companion, to his distinct credit, is responsible for encouraging his wife to broaden her entrepreneurial horizon by sharing his famous chicken salad with those outside of their family.

“After being asked several times by family and friends to make it, I thought, ‘Wait a minute, my husband might be on to something great,’” Kyra Henderson, a native Memphian, told Making Headline News this week. “So I took it to beauty shops and barbershops and it became a high demand on Saturdays.”

That Kyra Henderson had graciously heeded the advice of her husband and other family members has benefited her mightily.

So much, in fact, that the Hendersons essentially are building an impressive empire right before our very eyes as owners of Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad.

An up-and-coming business that is located at 3709 South Hickory Ridge Mall in Suite 460 inside the historic Hickory Ridge Mall, Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad has become a popular establishment for Memphians, given the buzz it has acquired since its inception a little more than a year ago.

Widely considered a “game changer” according to Kyra Henderson, her husband’s delectable, mouth-watering chicken salad has become one of the most sought-after products throughout the Memphis-metropolitan area, let alone a favorite amongst those who weren’t particularly fans of such a food.

“Our product is made fresh daily,” Kyra Henderson,  a 1991 Memphis Hamilton High graduate, said.

Not only that, what has set the Hendersons’ product aside from others similar to it is that their chicken salad is filled with a unique smoked flavor that keeps customers coming back for more.

So what is Darwin’s secret?

Good luck trying to convince him to relinquish or share a famous recipe that figures to remain undisclosed indefinitely.

“The secret is it is full of love,” Kyra Henderson said with a straight face while displaying her customary signature smile. “We love what we do and love the smiles on our customers’ faces after they taste it.”

WE AIN’T TELLING Y’ALL NOTHING — What sets Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad aside from others similar to it is that its chicken salad is filled with a unique smoked flavor that keeps customers coming back for more. So what is their secret? Good luck trying to convince the Hendersons to relinquish or share a famous recipe that figures to remain undisclosed indefinitely.

So scrumptious and desirable the Hendersons’ chicken salad is that those who customarily find their way inside the Hickory Ridge Mall can’t seem to think of enough favorable names for it.

“It has been called several things like additive, unbelievable, breath-taking, and just plain out good,” Kyra Henderson said. “We don’t take this lightly being that we are husband and wife and that God gave an idea to us that has taken off by surprise.”

As if Memphians haven’t become addicted to Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad, it seems the Hendersons’ product is starting draw rave reviews amongst residents outside of the Bluff City.

According to Kyra Henderson, one customer actually caught a flight bound for Memphis just to make a special visit to her place of business and purchase the famous chicken salad.

Talk about having a monumental impact in a once downtrodden, storm-damaged Southeast Memphis-area mall that appears well on its way to returning back to respectability.

 

TALK OF THE TOWN — Interesting enough, the array of stories, testimonies, and positive feedback surrounding Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad are one what the Hendersons will cherish for a lifetime.

“What we found out was all different ages and ethnic backgrounds love our product, so we decided to step out on faith and open up in the Hickory Ridge Mall Food Court, which is an area that is on the road back to thriving again for businesses,” Kyra Henderson explained. “We have now been located in the Hickory Ridge Mall for little over a year, and it has been absolutely amazing how our business has thrived in this mall.”

Interesting enough, the array of stories, testimonies, and positive feedback surrounding Alex Farms Hickory Smoked Chicken Salad are what the Hendersons will cherish for a lifetime.

Heck, you’ve just gotta love Darwin, the mastermind behind what is shaping up to be a family-oriented empire — with God, their Helper, leading the way.

“My husband has always enjoyed cooking for friends and family, and this product was made by my husband for our son’s graduation dinner when he graduated from elementary school and he is now a senior in college,” Kyra Henderson said. The name (of the business) comes from our daughter, whose her name is Alex. She is the taste tester. She tells her dad what is needed for each batch to go out perfectly every time.”

In that case, heck, you’ve just gotta love Alex too.

Memphian Travis Moore enjoying a carefree lifestyle as a progressive businessman for an internationally-acclaimed company

SEEING MOORE OF HIS FAMILY — A longtime aircraft mechanic, Moore, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, reminisced about all those nights he found himself sleeping in an airport terminal, sometimes as many as four days a week, a trend that, unfortunately for him, gave way to much stress and discouragement, in large part because all things considered, Moore is a devoted family man. “I lived in Memphis, but working in Dallas let me know that it was time for a change,” Moore, 38, a native of Memphis, said. “I only saw my family three days a week, and that I wanted to have more time with my family inspired me to take a chance on myself and start my own business.”

Travis Moore recalls those brutally hectic days like yesterday.

He remembers all too well how although his permanent residence has always been in his native city of Memphis, he should have very well established a second place roughly eight hours away in Dallas.

A longtime aircraft mechanic, Moore, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, reminisced about those countless nights he found himself sleeping in an airport terminal, sometimes as many as four days a week, a trend that, unfortunately for him, gave way to much stress and discouragement, in large part because all things considered, Moore is a devoted family man.

 

MAKING MOVESA 1997 Westwood High School graduate who served in the United States Air Force from 1999-2005, Moore is an established Independent Business Representative for a universally-acclaimed travel-based business or, as he labels it, “a five-star travel experience for a for a two-star price.”

“I lived in Memphis, but working in Dallas let me know that it was time for a change,” Moore, 38, said. “I only saw my family three days a week, and that I wanted to have more time with my family inspired me to take a chance on myself and start my own business.”

To his credit, Moore’s immeasurable leap of faith is starting to pay off mightily — with God, His helper, leading the way.

LISA’S LOVEWith the solid support of his wife, Lisa Moore, and their four children, Travis Moore not only became inspired to exercise his faith in ways unimaginable when he sensed it was time to make a career change but, for the first time in a longtime, he’s back to living and savoring a carefree lifestyle — with God, his Helper, leading the way.

A global business that has proven beneficial to consumers worldwide, Moore’s business venture not only offers an array of luxurious trips and vacations around the globe, but members are also afforded the golden opportunity to partake in delectable meals, drinks, massages, even helicopter tours (depending on trip, he said).

“The goal is to make your vacation experience better than what you could have imagined,” Moore said.

A former prep dual sport athlete who starred in football and track and field, Moore said his competitive drive through athletics, by all accounts, played an integral role in fueling his competitive drive to start his business.

“The sports impact let me know that you have to work hard for what you want and that learning never stops,” Moore said. “(You’ve got to) stay disciplined, push through the tough times, and will power is an amazing thing and never get outworked by anyone.”

JUST CHILLIN’ — As if helping others to maximize their potential isn’t enough, the close-knit relationships and connections Travis Moore has experienced since erecting his business has served as an added bonus, or sorts. “Being in this business has put me around some of the greatest people I have ever met,” Travis Moore said.

“Being in this business has put me around some of the greatest people I have ever met,” Travis Moore said. “And having the opportunity to travel with positive and uplifting people is a wonderful feeling.”

Among the reasons is that since making the lofty transition to becoming an independent business representative, Travis Moore has had the luxury of traveling to such places as Arizona, Florida, and Texas.

In addition, he said arranging passports for his wife and children so that they could travel abroad are currently in the works.

So much for all of those seemingly discomforting nights of sleeping in airport terminals.

Today, unlike never before, Travis Moore doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’s undoubtedly walking in his purpose — with God, his Helper, leading the way.

BEING A BLESSING — Today, unlike never before, Travis Moore doesn’t shy away from the notion that he’s undoubtedly walking in his purpose.
“Just like someone found me and showed me that there is a better life out there, I feel it’s my daily duty to let people know that life is beautiful,” Travis Moore said. “Every day that God allows you to wake up is a day that He is allowing you to better yourself and (your) situation…to be the winner you were put here to be.”

Giving back and impacting lives are extremely key, Travis Moore, displaying a smile, is quick to acknowledge.

“Just like a couple that came into my life and blessed (me) and my family,” he said, “I have no option but to be a blessing for someone else.”

With God, his Helper, leading the way.

Houston-based businesswoman Toni Anderson enjoying a global impact as a thriving group travel consultant

15590153_1718946021453527_4019456721345500304_nDALLAS — Various media reports have surfaced in recent years to insinuate, among other things, that the traditional family life is on a steady decline.

For instance, among the notable reasons, particularly as it relates to the decline of the American family is that, “It’s about money, not morals,” syndicated columnist Paul Krugman wrote back in his 2012 commentary in The Seattle Times.

Among the family-oriented Americans who have expressed constant concerns about this notion is Houston-area businesswoman Toni Anderson.

PHILLY'S FINEST --- It is because of the camaraderie and close-knit fellowship that were comprised amongst her fellow members that have fueled Houston-area businesswoman Toni Anderson’s desire to help aid families recapture the love and intimacy that have, by all accounts, given way to the traditional family emerging as the beacon of light for which it is widely known. “I am woman, veteran owned business owner. My words are God, family and work…in that order,” Anderson explained.” There’s more. “My tag line is, ‘Toni, Your Travel Agent, With A Personal Touch,’” Anderson said. “I want all my clients to know and feel that they are important to me and my family. As a family we understand and value the loyalty of our clients.”

“I am woman, veteran owned business owner. My words are God, family and work…in that order,” Anderson explained.”
There’s more.
“My tag line is, ‘Toni, Your Travel Agent, With A Personal Touch,’” Anderson said. “I want all my clients to know and feel that they are important to me and my family. As a family we understand and value the loyalty of our clients.”

A native of Philadelphia who served in the United States Army for four years, Anderson, 47, is a well-established Group Travel Consultant, an adventurous profession that, to her credit, has greatly afforded her with the golden opportunity to help families reconnect with the traditional values and attributes that have helped shape family life — the way God predestined it to be.

“Most of my clients are families,” Anderson told Making Headline News. “Today’s families are not as close as they used to be. As a child, I remember when my mom always took us somewhere for the summer.  We had a family vacation. My mom didn’t have lots of money, so all vacations were road trips.  As siblings, we bonded in the back of a station wagon driven by my aunt.”

Wait, there’s more.

Aside from an extensive amount of traveling, amongst Anderson’s chief responsibilities through her business venture is to routinely introduce an assortment of cruise and travel packages to consumers.

“I specialize in Virgin travelers and groups,” Anderson said. “I focus on families of all ages, from six months to 90 years.”

In addition — and fortunately for her — what has undoubtedly become a booming, thriving business venture has given way to her having experienced trips of a lifetime.

How else to explain why she has visited luxurious establishments such as South America, as well as a plethora of sites in the Caribbean and Mexico, not to mention having toured nearly half of the United States?

“I truly believe God created this beautiful earth and we should see as much of His creation as we can via traveling,” said Anderson, explain in great detail her mission for engaging in such a profession. “It is good to see and learn other cultures.  You will be exposed to others by traveling.”

Not to mention reconnecting and revisiting something that has seemingly been nonexistent in American families for some time — that priceless, yet rich camaraderie.

“I have a family reunion cruise coming up June 17-22, 2017,” said Anderson, adding that her husband, Darryl and her son, Antonio, are amongst her her biggest supporters in what has become a successful business. “This event is multiple families coming together to cruise.  We will have family competition games and more.  One example is each family is being asked to come up with T-shirt design and the best design wins a gift.”

All of which is to say why family values are extremely key and vital, Anderson acknowledged, particularly in the supposed traditional American family, whereby there has seemingly been an unyielding dysfunction.

SHE'S SO COOL --- By and large, Anderson strongly believes that through her flourishing business, coupled with her relentless faith, she has the remedy for helping families recapture that close-knit unity, something that can take place outside the confines of their respective communities. “My mom always kept an open line of communication with us,” Anderson said. “There was nothing we couldn't talk to our mom about. We would sing, talk and play in the car all along bonding. My mom taught us valuable lessons about life and people. She said, ‘In this world, always remember you have each other. There will be times when you argue and fight, but you are always sisters and brothers and don't let no one come between you all.’

All while greatly helping families reconnect with the traditional values and attributes that have helped shape family life.

After all, that is how God predestined it to be.
