Shreveport’s Raichal Linnear savoring sustained success as an accomplished entrepreneur


I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. (Philippians 4:13 KJV)


BLESSED REGARDLESS 

DALLAS — Raichal Linnear isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport, Louisiana.

At the end of the real day, Linnear is destined to make every single day count, is determined to broaden her horizon and maximize her potential.
After all, she knows full well she’s owes it to herself to press and navigate toward her purpose.
On purpose.
“I, Raichal, saw a need that I wanted to do more for myself and my family to having a functioning stability to where I can take care of my family and live the lifestyle that’s going to educate myself and learn who is Raichal Linnear as an adult to better herself,” Linnear told Making Headline News this week.

Given the immeasurable strides Linnear has made of late, particularly as a rising entrepreneur, it’s safe to assume she’s steadfastly positioning herself to possess and savor the stability she so desperately seeks.

Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Shreveport-based is a profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.

Talk about stepping outside of her comfort, thus establishing a business venture that figures to garner sustained success, much sooner than later.

A business that is nearing its second year anniversary on September 16, Linnear entrepreneurial resume is also comprised of her assuming the role as a business specialist consultant, whereby she’s aids with a variety of assistance programs such as employment training, educational training and trade, as well as housing assistance programs for plus-sized individuals.

As for Thick Madame Boutique, Linnear’s venture offers an array of business clothing apparels as a retail outlet for business-minded individuals along with royal elegant dresses, as well as casual and African apparels.

Interestingly, Linnear customarily designs her own customized accessories, footwear, and cosmetics.

And then there is Thick Madame Modeling Agency, which is an adult entertainment program exclusively for plus-sized Americans who aspire to delve off into a modeling career as a strategic way to boost their image by way of generating exposure for their branding, Linnear emphasized.

Having credited entertainers Chris Brown and T.I. for inspiring her to start her businesses, Linnear’s said, “Right now, I’m in the progress of having map route to Place Thick Madame Boutique and to see it everywhere. I would love to see it in places such as Atlanta, Georgia, Dallas, Jamaica, Africa, Los Angeles, and Paris.

GOD’S PLAN — Raichal Linnear, 39, is owner and chief executive officer of Thick Madame Boutique LLC, her Sherveport, Lousiana-based profitable organization that centers largely on providing public and government services for plus-sized adults globally.  

Her itinerary includes, among other things, her hosting a business-related shower event and what is known as the Thick Madame Royale Fashion Runway at dates that have yet to be determined.

For what it’s worth, Linnear is overwhelmingly grateful of the fact that God has blessed her to achieve sustained success as a young businesswoman, who’s convinced her best and brightest days are well ahead of her.

“It is important (to esteem others daily), because I want everyone to know that your past does not defined who you are,” Linnear said. “You are the writer of your story. Where there is an ending, there is a new beginning. Push through your pain and see the Light (God) at the tunnel. For everything you go through, there’s a lesson to be learn, a story to be a testimony.”

Appropriately said, by a progressive, thriving businesswoman, one who isn’t about to let anything or anyone stop her from living her best life.

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport.

Columbia, Maryland-based businesswoman Christy Johnson’s inspiring non-profit organization aiming to have a global impact

VOICE HEARD AROUND THE WORLD — A native of Mississippi, Maryland-based businesswoman Christy Johnson is the President and Founder of Finding Your Destiny, Inc. a Columbia, Maryland-based non-profit domestic violence and suicide prevention organization she organized months after her daughter’s death.

For countless Americans, September 11 is a date by which they will recall and reflect upon for years to come.

For Christy Johnson, however, September 10 is a date that undoubtedly will cause her to unleash tears for the rest of her life.

To be technical, it all transpired on September 10, 2013.

That was the date that sent shock waves throughout Johnson’s family when she learned that her daughter, then-19-year-old Destiny, was murdered and left hanging in a closet as a result of domestic violence.

Even after having buried two children — first Destiny then Mark — Johnson, during an exclusive interview this week with Making Headline News, spoke at length about how she steadfastly had to rely of unyielding faith in God to press and navigate her way through arguably the most downtrodden times of her life.

“My inspiration comes from God first and then my daughter, Destiny, and my son, Mark, in heaven,” Johnson said. “God shows me every day that He will provide my every need. God told me He chose me to do this work. Therefore, I cannot stop advocating for those who are being abused and murdered every day.”

To her distinctly unique credit, Johnson — with God, her Helper, leading the way — has gone above and beyond to be a voice and a beacon of light for those who have endured and, perhaps witnessed their lives cut short amid domestic violence.

A native of Mississippi, Johnson is the President and Founder of Finding Your Destiny, Inc., a Columbia, Maryland-based non-profit domestic violence and suicide prevention organization she established months after her daughter’s tragic death.

“Immediately, I began my organization because I knew the pain I felt I did not want another mother or father to feel,” Johnson said.

In addition, Johnson is widely known as an activist for individuals who have experienced or are presently being mistreated and suffering various forms of abuse.

WHAT ABOUT FINDING YOUR DESTINY? http://www.findingyourdestiny.org

Moreover, amongst her notable goals is to serve people of various races and both sexes. Also, Johnson’s key objectives, particularly through what she describes as “societal transparency,” is to empower, transform, and rebuild the lives of women and teen girls through Finding Your Destiny, Inc., especially by way of Biblical principles or a spiritual avenue, of sorts, for teaching about domestic violence, suicide, and other forms of abuse.

“My personal mission for the work I do is to educate, regenerate, create, transform, and heal broken hearts, minds, and souls of those affected by domestic violence and other forms of abuse,” Johnson explained.

Interesting enough, Johnson’s immense contributions through her non-profit organization have allowed her to diligently put her advocacy gifts on display outside of the United States, most notably in the United Kingdom.

“My mission for the trip to London, England was to bring resources and to educate those living in silence about my programs and book I wrote on the violence residence in London face every day,” Johnson said.

All things considered, Johnson consequently authored two books in the wake of arguably the darkest hours of her life: “From Rattled To Recovery: The Faces Of Domestic Violence Domestic Violence,” and “That Which Is Beyond Death.”

“The books are very valuable because they provide phone numbers, websites, addresses, hotlines, and emergency action plans for safety,” Johnson said.

GLOBAL BEACON OF LIGHT — Johnson is widely known as an activist for individuals who have experienced or are presently being mistreated and abused. Moreover, amongst her notable goals are to serve people of various races and both sexes. Also, Johnson’s key objectives, particularly through what she describes as “societal transparency,” are to empower, transform, and rebuild the lives of women and teen girls through Finding Your Destiny, Inc. — especially by way of Biblical principles, or a spiritual avenue, of sorts, for teaching about domestic violence, suicide, and other forms of abuse.

In addition, Johnson emphasized that she’s aiming to create partnerships with other organizations that share similar objectives and missions geared toward to fighting domestic violence.

Credit her beloved children from heaven above for providing her with the continuous support and inspiration she needs to function daily in her God-given assignment.

“I know Destiny and Mark are interceding and helping me stay strong, focused, and determined to fight domestically and internationally,” Johnson said.

Ironically, Johnson has organized an internship program through her non-profit organization as a way to reach back and aid others in fulfilling their dream and joining the fight against domestic violence.

“The internship teaches about crimes and consequences, criminology, advocacy, victimology, restorative justices, crime scenes, victims of crime, victim questioning and domestic violence,” Johnson explained.

While Johnson’s organization has proven time and again to be an effective avenue for combating domestic violence, she emphasized, among other observations, which the justice must be served for present and future victims which, according to her, wasn’t the case for her daughter.

“The justice system failed to charge Destiny’s murderer for his crime,” Johnson said. He was allowed to walk free and he murdered another woman. The injustice I received and felt was so devastating that I created an internship program through my organization for criminal justice to inspire every student to do the right thing for victims of victimology. I encourage my students to always display these three values: integrity, empathy, and respect for all crime scenes, families of murdered victims, and for victims.”

As for her itinerary, Johnson’s organization will host a major event on October 6 to commemorate the life of Destiny, as well as domestic violence survivors and other murdered victims whose lives were cut short due to domestic violence.

In addition, Johnson emphasized that Finding Your Destiny plans to “open heaven” during her forthcoming event as a way to send everlasting love and peace to every person murdered by domestic violence and other forms of abuse.

“This is going to be a national and international movement on Oct 6, 2017,” Johnson said.

A development that in likelihood, figures to bring smiles to the faces of Destiny and Mark — all while her pride and joy look on from heaven above.

Washington, D. C.-area businesswoman Nikki Smith using Total Life Changes for economic prosperity, to enhance life of artistic son

ON HER GRIND — Having acknowledged that she chose the education industry for job security because it would give way to a sense of job security, Nikki Smith said her tenure in the classroom ultimately gave way to becoming an obstacle, of sorts, in large part because her son had been stricken by a variety of special needs. Fortunately for her, that is when Total Life Changes had come into play, thus providing her with the newfound hope and enthusiasm, let alone the much-needed breakthrough she so desperately sought — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

In a variety of aspects, Nikki Michelle Smith and her affiliation with Total Life Changes go hand in hand.

Take, for instance, how when Smith, a former professional educator, joined Total Life Changes a year-and-a-half or so ago, this Washington, D.C.-area businesswoman sensed, among other things, that this thriving, progressive business would benefit her mightily.

Most importantly, during an exclusive interview Friday morning with Making Headline News, Smith spoke at length about how her having joined TLC would greatly enhance her lifestyle and that of her son, Darrell Anthony Bronston, Jr.

During an exclusive interview on Friday morning with Making Headline News, Smith spoke at length about how her having joined TLC would greatly enhance her lifestyle and that of her son, Darrell Anthony Bronston, Jr. Bronston, Jr. is a 16-year-old child who diagnosed with severe autism when he was 3 ½ years old.

Bronston, Jr. is a 16-year-old child who was diagnosed with severe autism when he was 3 ½ years old.

“That was devastating to me,” said Smith while speaking passionately about her only child. “Although I’ve always been positive and always had a lifelong goal of being a teacher, his diagnosed inspired me to learn more about special education so I would know how I could apply it with him as well as understand his educational rights.”

Having acknowledged that she chose the education industry for job security purposes and because it would give way to financial stability, Smith said her tenure in the classroom ultimately gave way to her job becoming an obstacle, of sorts, in large part because her son had been stricken by a variety of special needs.

HEAVEN SENT — More than anything, Smith said while displaying her smile, she’s mostly grateful for her son, her precious, beloved, tailor-made gift from God and arguably her grandest inspiration.

“That turned into an obstacle,” Smith explained. “Either I made too much money, not enough money, I missed a dead line, or the money ran out and so on. It was very frustrating, and the reality was I needed help.”

Fortunately for her, that is when Total Life Changes had come into play, thus providing her with the newfound hope and enthusiasm, let alone the much-needed breakthrough she so desperately sought — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

Having officially gone into operations in 1999, Total Life Changes, or TLC as it is widely known, provides thousands of people around the world with the opportunity to build a brighter future, most notably by way of living and savoring a healthy lifestyle, as well as through the financial freedom and flexibility they seek.

According to a spokesperson for TLC, this internationally-acclaimed business has developed a widely described as a “true sense of family” that is shared by its independent business owners, executive staff, and customer service agents. Moreover, this company is credible in that it customarily provides its members with an unlimited opportunity to grow their business, not to mention develop a network of offices located across the world.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Smith emphasized that amongst her notable goals as an independent business owner through TLC is to have a stellar business-related impact with its assortment of products throughout the United States, even as far as the United Kingdom, South Africa, and Canada, among other establishments.

In addition, she aspires to use her products and generated revenue to help enhance and make comfortable the lives of individuals who share a similar lifestyle as her.

“My goal is the help special needs moms and pops and help them see the benefits of a home-based business,” Smith said. “You see…raising children with special needs has it rewards.”

 

More than anything, Smith said while displaying her smile, she’s mostly grateful for her son, her precious, beloved, tailor-made gift from God and arguably her grandest inspiration.

“My son has taught me a lot,” Smith said. “However, his needs have also caused me to leave my job.”

Then again, Smith didn’t actually leave her job, at least not on her on own merits, mind you.

“I got fired, because my days were spent going to therapy sessions,” Smith explained. “I was getting called home because the sitter could not handle his high needs or I could not trust just anyone with my child. His father helps a lot, but when I left the (Ohio), it was overwhelming emotionally, financially and physically. I started to lose myself.

“I was depressed and I was emotionally detached from my child,” Smith continued. “I did all the motherly duties but I was reclosed…gained weight, didn’t care about my appearance and all of that always was taking its toll. My mom brought it to my attention I was burnt out. A lot of special needs parent find themselves in this same situation and sadly on the other side of the law for neglect, abuse, and sometimes the loss of a child to social services, not because they were bad parents, but because they were overwhelmed and lacked resources or support most times both.

With proper education, coupled with her affiliation with Total Life Changes, Smith doesn’t shy away from the notion that because of her relentless faith, she adopted a newfound disposition on life — a life-enhancing trend that is proving beneficial for the young Darrell, Jr.

“The Nutraburst gives him the vitamins he needs that he don’t get due what he eats over again,” Smith said. “The NRG helps him focus and gives him mental energy as well. He has meltdowns when there is too much going on and he goes into sensory overload, which causes him to have meltdowns. The NRG has helped with that a lot (Disclaimer: TLC does not mitigate any medical claims or cures of any diseases, disorders or ailments). But we focus on results.”

Fortunately for Smith, the results have been favorable.

Which, after all, sums up that in a variety of aspects, Nikki Michelle Smith and her affiliation with Total Life Changes go hand in hand.
