Sing to the LORD a new song; sing to the LORD, all the earth. (Psalm 96:1 NIV)


4-GOD BE THE GLORY

GLOBAL IMPACT — Widely known amongst his peers as “4G,” Jimmy Gathers, 44, is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Above far as the above Biblical passage goes, Jimmy Orlando Gathers, Jr. spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, he raps, too.
“Aside from being in the music industry, on a personal level, it’s more about my family’s legacy,” Gathers, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining the awe-inspiring events that have greatly afforded him the golden opportunity to function in his element. “Let me elaborate.”
Alright, then.
Have at it.
“Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”
Given the immeasurable strides Gathers have made in recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

Widely known amongst his peers as “Jay Gathers” — which is accompanied by the nickname, “4G” — Gathers is the CEO and Founder of GrandMaster Entertainment LLC, his Panama City, Florida-based company that has come full circle amid his more than 15 years in the music entertainment arena.

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

Credit the fact that he’s steadfastly on fire for God as arguably the grandest reasons why.

Because, after all, even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.


“(I love) providing great music, great entertainment, and giving people the message of the gospel,” said 4G, a native of Apalachicola, Florida. “More importantly, it blesses me to see people’s lives changed, because they can relate to the transparency in my music.”


A 1993 graduate of Panama City’s Bay High School, 4G earned his undergraduate degree from Florida State University. Prior to that, he was enrolled at Gulf Coast State College in Panama City, where he earned General Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees in Fire Science, which ultimately gave way to his becoming a certified fire fighter.

GOD’S PLAN…GOD’S PLAN — Even aside from having evolved as a fixture in the Body of Christ, 4G doesn’t shy away from the notion that only what you do for Christ will last.

While 4G is fully aware that knowledge is power, music has always been his primary passion.

In fact, 4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created.

How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

Widely regarded as an accomplished gospel hip-hop and Christian hip-hop recording artist, what’s so intriguing about 4G’s achievements is that he’s going to great lengths to help advance the kingdom in ways unimaginable.

“I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with two-time Stellar award winner Canton Jones,” said 4G, calling off names of gospel celebs as if he’s handing out diplomas. “He’s actually featured on four projects off my newly released album entitled, ‘Unqualified.’ “I also have collaborations with Mr. Del (previously of Three Six Mafia) and Born Divine of the Wu Tang Family.”

Wait. There’s more.

“I also have projects produced by well- known producers who’ve produced for other mainstream artists such as Supa Cool — Kevin Gates, Gucci Mane, Shaquille O’Neal — and Lady Trauma (Missy Elliot),” 4G said.

IN HIS OWN WORDS — “Not only am I a musician…personally, I’m also a black man who’s not only trying to get beyond racial barriers, but I’m also trying to break generational curses that so many other black men in the black community face by not leaving an inheritance for the family and extended families.”

“I’ve appeared twice on Bobby Jones Presents in Nashville, appeared on America’s Got Anointing (The Word Network) in Atlanta, performed the last two years at showcases in Las Vegas during the Stellar Awards, was an opening act for Le’Andria Johnson in Charlotte, appeared on the front cover of Soul Central Magazine (March, 2019 Edition), the front cover of Gospel USA Magazine (October, 2019 Edition), won the 2019 Holy Hip-Hop artist of the Year award in North Carolina.”

Hold up. He’s still not finished disclosing of his laundry list of accolades.

4G’s musical gifts, by all accounts, are a part of the divine purpose for which he was created. How else to explain why he’s had the luxury of working alongside some of the gospel music industry’s finest and most prominent personalities?

“I’ve been nominated for numerous other (awards) to include as the V.O.G.M.A., Steeple Awards, and Soul Central Awards,” said 4G, who has been the beneficiary of ongoing media coverage and exposure.

As for the upcoming New Year, 4G is overwhelmingly enthused, in large part because greater is on the way, he said.

“(The year) 2020 is looking very promising as I’m planning more musical events at major churches in bigger markets, radio interviews, recording more visuals and music videos, recording and releasing more new music, etc.,” 4G said.


HOLDIN’ IT DOWN 

For what it’s worth, 4G emphasized, among other things, that his primary objective is to glorify God through his musical gifts, all the while leaving a last impression as a result.

“As stated in Proverbs 13:22, a good man leaves an inheritance to his children’s children, but the sinner’s wealth is laid up for the righteous,” 4G said. “When my father died years ago, he didn’t leave anything behind financially that I — as his son — could be proud of. That feeling that I felt during that time in my life is one I never want my sons and daughters to feel. That is what propels me daily in my business venture.”

Eloquently stated by a giftedly talented child of God, whose spiritual resume is such that he customarily sings unto the Lord a new song.

Or, in his case, raps, too.

Given the immeasurable strides 4G have made in his recent years as a giftedly talented entertainer, it’s safe to assume his best and brightest days are well ahead of him in this, an ever-so-competitive music industry.

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES MICHELLE GREENE RHODES

She’s not just aware of it, mind you.

And not just live and savor her best life but, most importantly, she’s committed to helping others follow suit.

WHAT ABOUT MICHELLE?

COACH ENTREPRENEUR — A native of St Petersburg, Florida who boasts a solid career as a registered nurse, Michelle Greene Rhodes is the mastermind by an immeasurable coaching business, which allows her to inspire and empower nurses into entrepreneurship.

“(I want) to see more nurses fulfilled by their purpose,” Rhodes, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, explaining her mission that has benefited her mightily as a thriving, progressive businesswoman.

A native of St Petersburg, Florida who boasts a solid career as a registered nurse, Rhodes is the mastermind by an immeasurable coaching business, which allows her to inspire and empower nurses into entrepreneurship.

“(I have) the desire to see nurses fulfill their dreams and passion outside of the hospital,” said Rhodes, explaining how her competitive drive in life has helped propel her for her business venture. “We have so much to offer. I love the freedom it brings and the purpose it fulfills.”

MAJOR CAREER MILESTONE — In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

For Rhodes, who currently resides in Tampa, her well-publicized track record as an RN has been nothing short of remarkable.

That’s because aside from customarily caring for and tending to those who are in dire need of medical help, Rhodes can be appropriately deemed a woman of many hats, considering she is a gifted author and public speaker.

In May 2018, Rhodes witnessed the much-anticipated release of her first book entitled, “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology.”

Comprised of 220 pages, Rhodes’ “The Nurse Echelon: A Victorious Nurse Anthology” is centered mostly on the spiritually-enhancing subject that is victory, most notably how victory has been commonly defined as what she describes as the overcoming of an enemy or antagonist.

“In life, many of us have had to triumph over trials and tribulations to meet a particular goal in life,” said a spokesperson for Rhodes recently-released book at Amazon.com. “Those who do not allow hardships to defeat them have been known as overcomers. When it comes to becoming a nurse or enduring a nursing career, it is known that the schooling is rigorous, the work is tough, the shifts are long and there are some nights that we cannot sleep due to thinking about the shift before. This anthology was created to inspire women, nurses and future nurses to not give up when hard times come. You see, after the rain comes the sunshine.”

A pretty empowering synopsis of a scintillating written document that will be on display when Rhodes hosts her fourth book signing, this time on Saturday, October 20 at a Tampa-area Barnes And Noble.

“We’ll also be launching my 2nd Annual Nurses Book Drop, (during which) I (introduce) 10 nurses as authors,” Rhodes said. “Last year’s event was a huge success.”

A coaching business that went into full operations in November 2016, Rhodes emphasized, among other things, that her sustained success has come to fruition, courtesy of her fervent desire to esteem and inspire others daily.

Interestingly, in May 2019, she will be empowering women in Paris, France along with internationally-acclaimed speaker, Cheryl Wood.

“Having stayed the course and achieved my own dreams, I find joy in helping others attain theirs as well,” Rhodes said. 

Now we know why she’s fully aware of the purpose for which God has created her.

Recent NFL Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis amongst Florida businessman Dr. Casuel Pitts’ grandest supporters

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES DR. CASUEL PITTS  


For Dr. Casuel Pitts, it was undoubtedly the most memorable 500 bucks someone had ever given him in his entire life.

“When I was 11 years old, my father put $500 in my hand for work that I did for his business,” Dr. Pitts recalled. “His entrepreneurship (endeavor) is what drove me to be my own boss.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

THE ULTIMATE WARRIOR — A native of Kankakee, Illinois who was raised mostly in Brooklyn, New York, DrCasuel Pitts, 33, is owner and chief executive officer of Ultimate Discount Services INC., an Orlando, Florida-based company that was created with the everyday consumer in mind, particularly with regards to focusing on what is known as everyday unforeseen incidents that many most likely don’t plan for, according to detailed breakdown Dr. Pitts’ venture at https://udsinc.us/.

And just like that, it was — much to the delight of Dr. Pitts — a nice little stash of cash that would essentially change his life forever.

That’s because after more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

ALL STAR LINEUP — A company that went into full operations four years ago, Ultimate Discount Services INC. is widely known for accommodating consumers with things such as car accidents, dropped cell phones, traffic violations, and medical visits, just to name few.

Former NFL star and recent Hall of Fame inductee Ray Lewis of Baltimore Ravens is the company’s President.

And now for this extremely vital disclaimer.

DAD KNOWS BEST — After more than 22 years removed from such a memorable exchange between Pitts and his father, this young, vibrant, progressive businessman has gone to great lengths to not just establish his own entrepreneurship ambitions, but to tackle them head on.

“Now, let’s clear up one major misconception. We are not insurance,” said a spokesperson for Ultimate Discount Services (or USD). “We offer a unique membership platform comprised of 16 powerful services that give you that extra piece of mind when life unexpectedly happens and you’re not financially in a place to accommodate certain situations.”

During an interview this week with Making Headline News, Dr. Pitts emphasized that USD headlines one of his companies.

“The core of UDS is reimbursements,” Dr. Pitts explained. “Our goal is to help people save money while educating them on how important credit, investments, and entrepreneurship are. It is important for consumers to realize that UDS is not insurance and, although we have similarities, our focus is to make sure reimbursements are received on things you cannot control.”

Interestingly, this notable businessman raises questions many consumers customarily pose daily.

“Ask yourself: When was the last time you or someone you know damaged a cell phone?” Dr. Pitts said. “What about the last time you or someone you know received some type of traffic ticket? What about medical, dental, and vision co-pays? These are just a few things that we reimburse on.”

An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

MORE THAN QUALIFIED — Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

Interestingly, Dr. Pitts’ company accommodates people nationwide and, according to him, USD is steadfastly devising ways to become a globally-acclaimed venture by the year 2020.

Having earned an undergraduate degree in Psychology, Dr. Pitts earned a Master’s Degree in Marketing and Advertising, and Doctorate Degrees in Business Management, Entrepreneurship, and Leadership and Organization.

“My personal mission for this business is what God hires me to do and that’s to make this brand, Ultimate Discount Services INC, a ministry and to help as many people as I can save money, build credit and invest smarter,” said Dr. Pitts, adding that aside from God, his grandest inspirations are his wife, Lewis, as well as the marketing consultants who play a major roll with helping build his brand.

GIVING BACK BIG TIME — An entrepreneur tenure that spans more two decades, Dr. Pitts’ featured business venture caters mostly to those whom he refers to as the “millennial drive with the wisdom of the baby boomers and Generation X.”

“I love God. I love people. I promote positive energy only,” Dr. Pitts continued. “My excitement about knowledge is similar to a kid in the candy store, and I always made myself accessible to it. The passion that I carry about business is like no other. I tend to get a bit animated and engulfed in a debate or conversation that develops on how to start, structure, or build a business. We as the human race lack more knowledge than we are aware of, and that’s why I feel that God is putting me in the position to mold me in order to help organize that category, but that is another story.”

What a difference 500 bucks have made.

U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant Sabrina Dennard making global strides as an International Empowerment Speaker

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SABRINA DENNARD 


Sabrina Dennard isn’t just a businesswoman whose primary objective includes, among other things, to have a national impact.

Rather, amongst her notable objectives to have more of an international presence.

An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

“God gave me everything within to speak and create life into my business and my clients,” Dennard, 46, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said, explaining what she loves mostly about her business  venture.

MAKING GLOBAL NOISE — An internationally-acclaimed entrepreneur in her own right, Sabrina Dennard is the Founder and chief executive officer of Dennard Agency Empowerment Group, LLC, a globally-oriented venture whereby she is the afforded the luxury of functioning primarily as an International Empowerment Speaker, Author, Philanthropist, and a Spoken Word Artist.

What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

That, after all, is amongst the reasons Dennard is thoroughly committed to having a global impact as a progressive and thriving businesswoman.

“(My business is centered on) creating an outlet to true freedom for women, men children of all nations regardless of race, color, creed, faith, or religion through words and thought transformation,” Dennard said. “There are so many supposed ways out there to obtaining desires, dreams, and goals, but none of them are truly telling the secret to success. They get us to a point and that’s it. I actually have the proven method to achieving it all.”

IMPRESSIVE INDEED — What is especially intriguing is that Dennard, a native of Fort Lauderdale, Florida and a U.S. Army Veteran Staff Sergeant, Florida, oversees the day-to-day operations of her business outside of the United States, most notably from Baghdad, Iraq, where she’s resided for the past two years.

For Dennard, she doesn’t shy away from the notion that such a proven method has surfaced with a cost.

“Continued failure, hurt, pain, my desire to see my parents’ and children’s dreams come true was and still is my drive,” said Dennard, explaining how her competitive drive in life has fueled her desire to jumpstart her endeavor. “To see so many nations in turmoil because of limited access to reach and achieve their dreams is my drive. My passion for people is my constant drive.”

As for her personal mission for functioning in the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

GOD’S PLAN — As for her personal mission for functioning the God-mandated calling, Dennard emphasized that what it all boils down to is achieving her lifelong dreams, coupled with her fervent ambition that is centered on continuing to be what she calls “an iconic light to open not only my eyes to see the invisible power, but others as well,” she says without hesitation.

An endeavor that caters mostly to individuals ranging in ages five years to  90 — “and up,” she said — Dennard’s empowerment group has allowed her to put her immeasurable leadership skills on display in a variety of establishments around the global, most notably in Iraq, where she’s presently under contract, which has enabled her to be what she deems a “constant encouragement” to the U.S. military soldiers during their deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, Poland, Kuwait.

“I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

As for the sustained success through her business venture, Dennard would be remiss if she did not give credit to her late father, Artist Ernest Dennard Sr., who was once commissioned by former President Jimmy Carter to embellish the walls of The Rural Georgia Telephone Museum with a mural of his art in Plains, Georgia.  Also, her mother, Etheron Dennard, as well as her grandmother, Theron Tolbert-Jones, has had massive impacts on helping her dreams to become a reality.

A globally-acclaimed reality, that is.

“They always believed I would do great things in this world,” Dennard said of those who make up her solid support system. “I would say the people in power positions I admire are Condoleezza Rice, Francis Berwick, Ana Botin, Oprah Winfrey, Beyonce Carter, Warren Buffett, Harriet Tubman, Michelle and Barack Obama.”

UK BOUND? “I have been requested to travel to London,” said Dennard, alluding to her immeasurable body of work and contributions as a military veteran. “I have worked and still work with many people from many backgrounds. Never a dull moment and I love it.”

Armed with more than a decade of experience in this ever-so-competitive empowerment industry, Dennard has grasped a thorough concept of why God has strategically chosen her to empower the massive for such a time as now.

“That is the reason we are all here,” said Dennard, adding that she’s presently working on producing a short film (called “Evening Street”) for her awe-inspiring book entitled, “Extra, Extra Read All About It: Evening Street, The Beginning.”

Florida author Janice Harris overcomes Sarcoma Cancer, writes an emotionally life-changing book

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES JANICE HARRIS 


During Janice Harris’ undergraduate days at the University of South Florida in Tampa, she strongly considered — and studied — journalism, although she had ultimately earned a Bachelor of Arts in Speech Communication.

Given the immeasurable strides she’s made as a writer in recent years, it’s safe to assume that Harris is, in some aspects, is a journalist in her own right.

PRAYER ANSWERED — Even while weathering the dreaded storm that is cancer, Floridian Janice Harris had become engaged in a rather intriguing dialogue with her Creator, one that eventually gave way to her becoming the mastermind behind the life-changing book entitled, “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey.”

That’s because Harris — even while pressing and navigating her way through arguably the darkest hours of her life — had steadfastly obeyed the voice of God by composing a book that is presently having a massive kingdom impact.

“I was recuperating from Sarcoma cancer, after having gone through chemo, two types of radiation, and a major surgery to remove the tumor,” an emotional Harris told Making Headline News this week.

Even while weathering the dreaded storm that is cancer, Harris had become engaged in a rather intriguing dialogue with her Creator, one that eventually gave way to her becoming the mastermind behind the life-changing book entitled, “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey.”

Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” was officially released earlier this month and, much to her delight, has already generated an assortment of five-star reviews at Amazon.com. The hard copy of Harris’ book debuted February 24. The book recently became available on Kindle, a version that is comprised of 196 pages.

A retiree of the State of Florida who is a seasoned minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” is highlighted large by her telling her story of what she dubs as a “survival,” or the miracle she had ultimately received.

Interestingly, she then gives inspiration to anyone dealing with what she appropriately describes as life’s most difficult trials and circumstances. In addition, Harris takes her reading audience through her turbulent journey that is comprised of an array of emotions and struggles, one that shows how she was determined to depend on her faith in God to bring her through it.

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSE — Fortunately for Harris, a native of Jacksonville, even as she battled her dreaded disease, it seemed that God was already moving on her behalf, thus preparing for her a way of escape.

“Many people give up while facing tough situations,” said a spokesperson for Harris’ book at Amazon.com. “Others who struggle to find answers as to why they are going through become bitter and angry at God and at life itself. In this story, you will be inspired to hold on despite what you are going through.”

Fortunately for Harris, a native of Leesburg, Florida, even as she battled her dreaded disease, it seemed that God was already moving on her behalf, thus preparing for her a way of escape.

“I heard in my spirit to write my experience down in a book, and then I saw a quick picture flash before my face of what the cover should look like and the title,” said Harris, explaining the vision that was revealed to her while battling cancer. “I did not keep pictures or notes during my bout with cancer, so I had to remember everything I went through. Because it was a crucial journey, I could remember everything vividly.”

THE GALATIANS 6:9 FACTOR — A retiree of the State of Florida who is a seasoned minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, Harris’ “Through the Fire: A Miraculous Journey” is highlighted large by her telling her story of what she dubs as a “survival,” or the miracle she had ultimately received.

A book she essentially began composing sometime in 2012, Harris had finally finished her initial written document in February of this year.

“It is a short book, but I tried to put as many details as I could,” Harris said.

To her credit, she did just that, considering the feedback since her book’s ceremonious release have been overwhelmingly favorable.

“I have received good feedback mainly from family and friends who have read the book thus far,” Harris said. “Due to a local move and other projects going on around the time that I published my book until now, I have not done any major promotion. The few written reviews on Amazon thus far are good. I am just getting around to doing a Kindle e-book this week, and expect more traffic on the book. I am also still hoping to do a book signing in the near future, even though my book has been out since late February.”

Despite a recent relocation and other things about which Harris has had to address, what matters at this point is that her new book is finally where it belongs: on the market.

Which, as a result, means its best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“I have always believed God has a great purpose and plan for my life,” said Harris, adding that other books are forthcoming, most notably one on poetry in memory of her mother, who passed away in 2011 at the age of 88. “I have always been a leader and an encourager. I love to help and encourage others. I do so daily whether it is simply on my Facebook page, at church from the pulpit, in the store, or anywhere else that I go. I am a witness for Jesus Christ and it is definitely a desire given by my Creator. I feel that I have also been given the gift to write, and I want to do more of that.”

While Harris labels her new book as “just a portion of my story,” amongst the things about which she deems gratifying is that God strategically handpicked her to produce such a remarkably brilliant project for such a time as now.

IT IS FINISHED — A book she essentially began composing sometime in 2012, Harris had finally finished her initial written document in February of this year.

“When I found a small bump on my right femur around the hamstring area in December 2011, I had no idea what that would lead to,” Harris said.

What’s especially astounding about that seemingly discouraging day in December 2011 was that God all along had a miraculously blessing with her name on it.

A blessing that came wrapped up in a book that is having a massive kingdom impact.

Atlanta entrepreneur Kent Osbourne’s new book recalls how he conquered prison life to walking in his God-appointed destiny

I have told you these things, so that in Me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (John 16:33 NIV) 

 

While conducting an interview on Tuesday afternoon, a reporter jokingly referred to Kent Osbourne as “Dr. Osbourne.”

GOD’S DISTINGUISHED GENTLEMAN — Atlanta Businessman Kent Osbourne’s soon-to-be-released book entitled, “From Prison To Power,” an awe-inspiring, tear-jerking written document that depicts an integral portion of the life of a man whom, to his credit, has gone from being a high school dropout, to behind prison walls, to a man whom, truth be told, is presently savoring his best life now, all the while reaching back and helping others in the process.

Consequently, Osbourne found it rather amusing.

“You mean Mr.?” Osbourne said with a grin.

For the record, while the reporter was, in fact, joking, that he paid Osbourne such an intriguing pleasantry, in many aspects, carries a great deal of weight, something this accomplished Atlanta-area businessman fully welcomes.  

“I guess I am a doctor. I definitely can help people,” Osbourne told Making Headline News this week.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Osbourne doesn’t seem to mind assuming an honorary role as a doctor, of sorts, look no further than how he has gone about providing spiritual comfort and renewed strength, particularly to those whom, like him, have witnessed God strategically try their faith in ways unimaginable.

Not only that, look no further than how Osbourne has deemed it essential to share before global platform how God miraculously rescued from the depth of a prison cell only to thrust him on arguably the most commendable platform in his young life.

In fact, look — and read — no further than Osbourne’s soon-to-be-released book entitled, “From Prison To Power: Your Prison Starts In Your Mind.”

An awe-inspiring, tear-jerking written document that depicts an integral portion of the life of a man whom, to his credit, has gone from being a high school dropout, to behind prison walls, to a man whom, truth be told, is presently savoring his best life now, all the while reaching back and helping others capture a new lease on life in the process.

For the record, it all begins in the mind, Osbourne appropriately explained.

“The single, most underlying reason I chose to produce this book is to free people out of their mental prisons that have people stuck in life and making bad choices, and to allow people to have power over every aspect of their lives once they are free,” Osbourne said.

For the record, mind you, this is about to become more thought-provoking from the mouth of an ex-prisoner who knows damn well what he’s talking about.

“You don’t have to be locked in a physical prison to be locked up,” said Osbourne, further explaining the purpose of his very first book. “You can be locked up in your mind. The physical prison is just the result from being locked up in a mental prison. I believe by me sharing my story, people will learn valuable information on what not to do in life if they want to be successful.”

Atlanta businessman Kent Osbourne defies odds as high school dropout, emerges as a successful entrepreneur

COMEBACK STORY FOR THE AGES — To grasp a thorough understanding of why Osbourne doesn’t seem to mind assuming an honorary role as a doctor, of sorts, look no further than how he has gone about providing spiritual comfort and renewed strength, particularly to those whom, like him, have witnessed God strategically try their faith in ways unimaginable.

A book Osbourne began producing back in January 2007, this Melbourne, Florida native needed somewhere in the neighborhood of roughly eight months to complete it.

Now he’s just days away from witnessing his book’s much-anticipated release — July 4 to be exact.

“I believe people will learn from my mistakes, and the goodness of God through my teachings in my book to go on to live a productive, successful, and pleasing life unto God,” Osbourne said. “I produced this book to add value to people’s lives. I want people to know that whatever you have done in life, you still can be successful. If I can do it, anybody can do it. You just have to be willing to make that change.”

ONLY GOD CAN JUDGE HIM — Osbourne has deemed it essential to share before global platform how God miraculously rescued from the depth of a prison cell only to thrust him on arguably the most commendable platform in his young life.

Much to his delight, coupled with the God-appointed calling on his life, Osbourne has, in fact, proven to be one who hasn’t merely allowed prison life to define him.

Heck, if nothing else, life behind bars proved to be the much-needed turnaround he needed to, well, turn around his life, one whereby God is yet using him for His glory.

As expected, the feedback for a book that has yet to hit the market is already garnering favorable feedback, said Osbourne, the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

Not to mention a great book by a great businessman and a great motivator, not to mention a great ambassador for the kingdom of God, someone this modern-day church era surely needs for a time such as now.

IN THAT ORDER — As expected, the feedback for a book that has yet to hit the market is already garnering favorable feedback, said Osbourne, the proud owner and CEO of K.O Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International LLC, and Prison To Power Inc.

“I wasn’t supposed to make it,” Osbourne said. “Lost both parents before the age of 10. Homelessness. High school dropout. Abused and sold drugs. In and out of jail. Two prison sentences.”

Still, even after arguably the most trying and chaotic season of his life, Osbourne had sense enough to realize that God was there all the time.

Yep. Too late, devil. You should’ve killed him when you had the chance.

Today, unlike never before, belongs to God, as evidenced by his life’s dramatic comeback for the ages.

COME AS YOU ARE — If nothing else, life behind bars proved to be the much-needed turnaround Osbourne needed to turn around his life, one whereby God is yet using him for His glory.

“I found a greater purpose, although I suffered so much pain,” Osbourne said. “I realized if I wanted better out of life, I had to change and that change started with changing my mindset. I give all the glory and honor to God, my Father, Who gave me the knowledge to go from prison To power. I say to anybody out there that is tired of their current circumstances like I was and want to change, ‘It is possible. If I did it, you can do it. Anybody can do it.’

“You just have to be willing to make that change and it will happen,” Osbourne continued. “I sit here today as the owner of K.O. Trucking LLC, Generation Changers International, and founder of Prison To Power Inc. non-profit. I’m now building my brand as a motivational speaker and transformational speaker, motivating and inspiring others to be the best versions of themselves, teaching them how to go from the prison in their minds to living a life full of abundance. I made it. I’m so glad I made it. I made it through. You can to.”

Well said, Dr. Osbourne.

Are Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradford Herbalife International’s best kept secrets?

TEAM BRADFORD — It is, by all accounts, due in large part to Florida-based business owners Sean and Dawn Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

Sean. Dawn.

Dawn. Sean.

While their ages are separated by nearly eight years, one thing is for certain.

This amorous couple is virtually inseparable.

Sean Bradford, in fact, is 41 years of age and will celebrate another birthday in October. His prized companion, Dawn Bradford, on the other hand, is 48 and will celebrate Year No. 49 in December.

Collectively, the two steadfastly prove that age isn’t merely a factor, especially as it pertains to possessing and savoring authentic love and health. 

TEAM WORKS MAKES THE DREAM WORKS — Having at their disposal a solid, dedicated supporting cast is extremely vital, particularly with regards to achieving their routine customer services goals and objectives, the Bradfords acknowledged.

“We work on teaching about living a healthy active lifestyle,” Dawn Bradford told Making Headline News this week.

It is, by all accounts, due in large part to the Bradfords’ notable vision of enjoying healthy lifestyles that has greatly enabled them to become a power couple, of sorts, most notably as accomplished independent distributors for Herbalife International.

A longstanding global multi-level marketing corporation that develops, markets and sells nutrition supplements, weight management, sports nutrition and personal-care products, Herbalife was founded by longtime entrepreneur Mark Hughes in 1980 and employs approximately 7,800 people worldwide.

A credible company that is widely known for operating internationally and distributing its products in roughly 95 countries as of July 2015, according to a detailed description of the company at  www.goherbalife.com, Herbalife is comprised of approximately 3.2 million independent distributors, many of whom earn profits on product sales and additional commission from a network marketing compensation structure, according to a spokesperson for the globally-acclaimed company.

For the Bradfords, this Satellite Beach, Florida-based couple has been affiliated with Herbalife since May 2012 and, to their distinctly unique credit, they are reaping the benefits of their sustained success.

WE’RE ALL IN — Aside from the plethora of star-studded celebrity athletes, the Bradfords emphasized that they have on display Herbalife products for individuals of all ages.

“We use that competitive edge to keep us moving forward and motivated,” said Dawn Bradford whom, like her husband, allowed her competitive drive through her past achievements as a prep athlete to fuel her drive to delve off into entrepreneurship. “We understand it takes hard work, commitment, and drive to get to where you want to be in business and life in general. When you have the vision and the why, the how will show itself.”

ALL STAR COMPANY — Moreover, amongst the pivotal testimonies surrounding Herbalife and its assortment of efficient nutrition products is that arguably some of the best athletes on the planet have come to embrace and sponsor this internationally-acclaimed company and what it has to offer, according to www.sports.herbalife.com. Pictured is Seattle Seahawks All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman.

Not only that, having at their disposal a solid, dedicated supporting cast has been extremely vital, particularly with regards to achieving their routine customer services goals and objectives, the Bradfords acknowledged.

And here’s the caution: there are no quick fixes, the Bradfords are quick to point out.

“We don’t rely on a quick fix or a temporary solution,” said Sean Bradford whom, along with his wife, conducts what they call a free-and-open-to-the-public 3 Fit Clubs Weekly with their business partner and fellow team member Coach Shantel Tillman. “We want people to understand that this is truly a life-changing and lifestyle long term endeavor. How we fuel our bodies is in direct correlation with how we feel, walk, talk, and interact with others. It is not about a specific look or physical aspect. It’s about an overall feeling and doing your best every single day. It all goes hand in hand and works together.”

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — For the Bradfords, this Satellite Beach, Florida-based couple has been affiliated with Herbalife since May 2012 and, to their distinctly unique credit, they are reaping the benefits of their sustained success.

Much like Sean. And Dawn. And Dawn. And Sean.

This couple is virtually inseparable.

And to their credit, the Herbalife universe is starting to find that out the more.

Cincinnati-based businesswoman Cynthia McCalister’s Quality SAP Inc. is having a national information technology impact

For Cynthia McCalister, her entrepreneurial mindset spans back more than 30 years.

All things considered, she has her parents to thank.

Take, for instance, how back in August 1981, when the Professional Air Traffic Controllers implemented a strike that was ultimately declared illegal and was broken by the Reagan Administration.

By and large, such a well-publicize work stoppage gave way to the entrepreneurial concept for McCalister’s father, the late Thomas Johnson.

GLOBAL IMPACT — Amongst the notable neighborhood gems Cincinnati businesswoman Cynthia McCalister has serviced include: Bonita’s Southern Style Sweet Potato Pies, East of Chicago Pizza, NT Nails, Crown Jewel Designs, Made With Love Cakes and Catering Services, Prayer In Action Events by L’BAE, and Full Throttle Indoor Karting, just to name a few.

“It was the influence of my parents, Thomas and Madlyn Johnson, that gave me the drive to be an entrepreneur,” McCalister, who resides in Cincinnati, told Making Headline News this week. “After the Air Traffic Controllers Strike in the 80’s, my father set out on a path to become a small business owner.”

McCalister’s father eventually made good on his business-related pledge and by starting what had become Regal Carpet Cleaning.

The rest, as they say, is history.

Having witnessed her father evolve mightily as a business owner, coupled with her mother having become a fixture as a drug and alcohol abuse counselor, not to mention a counselor for the AIDS Foundation of Dayton, Ohio and later a minister, McCalister sensed that one day she would absorb and take heed to their influential, immeasurable impact.

ON THE MOVE — Quality SAP, by all accounts, is widely known as a progressive and forward thinking IT company that specializes in — but isn’t limited to — developing affordable mobile application platforms. With the launch of the Key Spot mobile application platform, it is an ideal tool for business and consumers to find and post deals, discounts, and events all in one Key Spot. Now you can find discounts and deals wherever you go.

According to the business’ overview on its The Key Spot App Facebook page, “Quality SAP” stands for Quality, Service, And Products.

In addition, there will be a Small Business Go Karting Challenge to see which business “comes out on top,” McCalister said.

“I get the most enjoyment working with small business owners by being a champion for them and supporting their growth,” McCalister, an Ohio native, said. “When I say I want to help you reach your goals, I mean it. I work to help spread the word about the hidden gems by leveraging technology of the Key Spot app, creating networking connections, and social media.”

Wait. There’s more pertinent information about which McCalister deemed it essential to share.

“When we are able to connect businesses to each other, such as an event coordinator looking for vendors, or a restaurant owner looking for desert makers, it provides opportunities for both sides to benefit,” McCalister explained. “In addition, being a patron provides the best firsthand account of products and services.”

“For businesses, the Key Spot app is like having a custom mobile advertising app at a fraction of the cost,” she said.

Interesting enough, not only is The Key Spot app available for businesses, but such a tool is suitable for all users, most notably to be used by customers for finding and posting deals, discounts, events within the community, along with self-managing and sharing educational events, church activities, concerts, garage sales, as well as other local happenings.

THE LEGACY LIVES ONHaving witnessed her father evolve mightily as a business owner, coupled with her mother having become a fixture as a drug and alcohol abuse counselor, a counselor for the AIDS Foundation of Dayton, Ohio, and later a minister, McCalister sensed that one day she would absorb and take heed to their influential impact.

Since Quality SAP‘s inception, there are currently Key Spot business partners in 15 states, including Ohio, Florida, Georgia, Virginia, New York, Arkansas, Illinois, Texas, Alabama, Indiana, Colorado, Michigan, Missouri, South Carolina, and California.

“We are continuing to spread across the country,” McCalister said.

All things considered, she has her parents to thank.

“As a family, we helped and supported (my father’s) journey,” McCalister said. “I saw firsthand the hard work he put into growing his business. In my mother, I saw God’s love demonstrated by her work in the community. Though they are no longer with us, their legacy lives on through me.”

LET’S NETWORK, Y’ALL: https://www.facebook.com/groups/KeySpotBusinessPartners/.

A legacy that, because she thought it necessary long ago to heed her parents’ advice and life’s lessons, has greatly given way to Quality SAP now having a global presence.

“I would not have achieved so much if it was not for my faith in God, the support of my family, friends, and business team for believing in me and my dream,” McCalister said. “With the love of my husband and children, it has given me the motivation to continue to strive for the highest heights. I want to make my family proud and be a positive role model, demonstrating anything is possible to achieve with God, a dream, and hard work.”

That’s the key.
