Accomplished Memphis singer and songwriter Tamikyo Inez: What You Need To Know


A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. (Proverbs 18:16 NIV)


A RISING STAR 

MEMPHIS MADE — A longtime Mid-Southerner who has spent the better part of life in the Bluff City, Tamikyo Inez is a proud 1993 graduate of the historic Memphis Mitchell High School. Today, she is founder and CEO of “12 Disciples Entertainment,” a venture she appropriately dubs “my life.”

DALLAS — In case you don’t know her, Tamikyo Inez would like to introduce herself.

Widely regarded as an accomplished American singer and songwriter I  her own right, Tamikyo Inez was born on June 8, 1975 in Memphis, Tennessee.
A longtime Mid-Southerner who has spent the better part of life in the Bluff City, Tamikyo Inez is a proud 1993 graduate of the historic Memphis Mitchell High School.
Consequently, she enrolled at Memphis’ Southwest Tennessee Community College, where she had ultimately acquired an Associate’s Degree in Business Administration in 2108.

Having adopted a keen passion for music, Tamikyo Inez sang her very first solo at the tender age of three, during which she grew up in the church, where she had become fixture in the choir.

Interestingly, this gifted and brilliant entertainer had endued what undoubtedly was a sometime tumultuous and stormy childhood, one that was mired by poverty and abuse, she told Making Headline News during an exclusive interview this week.


“Music has always been a vital source in my life.” — Mid-South Entertainer Tamikyo Inez


Much to her delight, though, it wasn’t until December 11, 2015 — or “at the most rock bottom place in my life,” she recalled — that Tamikyo Inez had witnessed the much-anticipated breakthrough she so desperately sought.

“God gave my life new meaning and purpose through songwriting,” she said. “That opened me up to learning the music business.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today, Tamikyo Inez is the founder and CEO of “12 Disciples Entertainment,” a venture she appropriately dubs “my life.”

“Everything I see in life, I hear as a song,”   Tamikyo Inez said of her company, which is steadily attracting a national presence. “My music speaks to anyone who loves and anyone who seeks encouragement through music…especially to dreamers over 40 (years of age) who venture to explore more of life in their mature years.” 

Having adopted a keen passion for music, Tamikyo Inez sang her very first solo at the tender age of three, during which she grew up in the church, where she had become fixture in the choir.

Now with her debut single, “Well Deserved” scheduled to be released on August 9, such a milestone will be accompanied by a nationwide tour, during which Tamikyo Inez’s musical talents will be put in display in such places as Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among other major establishments.

“My mission is so inspire dreamers to achieve their dreams,” Tamikyo Inez said. “When God created us, He made each of us with a unique calling and purpose. Life has so many setbacks and distractions, but we must be zealous to return to God — His will, His way, and His purpose for our lives.”

NATIONAL STAR WATCH 

Now with her debut single, “Well Deserved” scheduled to be released on August 9, such a milestone will be highlighted by a nationwide tour, during which Tamikyo Inez’s musical talents will be put in display in such places as Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando, Miami, New York, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, among other major establishments.

All things considered, amongst the things about which this Mid-South entertainer is especially grateful is that she never placed her dreams and purpose by the wayside.

In case you don’t know her, well, now you do.

So remember the name.

“I’m here to encourage you to never give up on God, because God had not given up on you,” Tamikyo Inez said. “My greatest inspiration is knowing why I woke up today and when I go to bed at night. I feel amazing, because I was busy fulfilling my purpose. I want that for everyone. That is the zealous life. INEZ (which stands for) I Need Everybody Zealous.”

Mid-South author Tamera Kelly heeds godly advice, completes first book prior to her mother’s death


And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. (1 Peter 5:10 NIV)


MOM KNOWS BEST 

DRAMATIC COMEBACK FOR THE AGES — A Mid-South-area author and businesswoman, Tamera Kelly is the mastermind behind the spiritually-empowering book entitled, “Back Against The Wall.”

DALLAS — One afternoon, Tamera Kelly reached for the nearest pen and pad, sat in the middle of the living room floor, and commenced to writing.

And the rest, as they say, was history.
“I knew that I would be an author at an early age due to me writing since elementary,” Kelly told Making Headline News this week. “(As it relates to my book), it’s funny, because I didn’t have a title. I just wrote the story and prayed about the title while I was writing it.”
For Kelly, that she steadfastly stepped out on faith — most notably through the ever-so-competitive world of authorship — has benefited her mightily in recent years.

CHEERING HER OWN — For Kelly, losing her mother essentially served as a devastating blow to a writer whom, because of her mother’s unyielding support, eventually had to come to grips with the notion that her No. 1 cheerleader was still very much coaching and guiding her from the heavens.

An awe-inspiring written work that is comprised of 106 pages in length, Kelly’s “Back Against The Wall” appropriately pinpoints dreaded situations, during which life — as precious, yet fragile it is — is throwing you curve balls, around what this Christian-based writer describes as “the worlds and upper cuts” at the same time.

“Like seriously, it felt like you were on a roller coaster, merry-go-round and zippin’ pippin’…and you just wanted to get off the ride,” said Kelly, referring to a few of the classic rides as Memphis’ now-defunct Libertyland amusement park. “Well…child…welcome to ‘Back Against The Wall.’ ‘Back Against The Wall’ is not your typical fiction novel. It speaks about every day circumstances that we all can relate to in one way or another.”

A book that is nearing its fourth year of existence — Kelly officially made her authorship debut on December 5, 2015 — Kelly needed somewhere in the neighborhood of five years to compose a book that, to her credit, has been as good as advertised.

“I was blessed with this gift,” Kelly said. “Writing is my passion. This is my first novel and it took me awhile to complete it due to during that timeframe I was taking care of my mother, who was battling leukemia that quickly transformed into lymphoma.”

Although Kelly’s mother had ultimately died as a result of complications surrounding her illness, the Memphis-area author had finally put to wraps her novel just before her mom had expired.

All things considered, she had no choice, quite frankly, given her quest to fulfill her dream as an accomplished author is just what her mother would have wanted.


“Although my mother tried to keep her illnesses from me as long as she could, she still continued to love on and put me first,” Kelly recalled. “Every morning, my mother would wake up at 4 a.m., prepare me breakfast, then come to my room and ask me, ‘Mera, are you up writing?’”


For Kelly, losing her mother essentially served as a devastating blow to a writer whom, because of her mother’s unyielding support, eventually had to come to grips with the notion that her No. 1 cheerleader was still very much coaching and guiding her from the heavens.

“After her transition, I didn’t want to write anymore,” Kelly explained. “I decided that I wasn’t going to publish my book, nor continue my literary gift until one night I was sitting in my bed, crying and I heard a voice say, ‘Finish what your father started.’ I’ve been doing it ever since then, because this is what my parents would have wanted me to do.”

As for the divine message Kelly aspires to send to her reading audience through her first book, this writer emphasized, among other things, that whenever our backs are against the wall, what it all boils down to devising ways to simply trust the man in the mirror.

Kelly is founder and executive director of Purpose Over Popularity Youth Development Center, Incorporated, her nonprofit organization designed to create and develop outlets for youth in low-income areas so they can become thriving citizen.

“At the end of real day, you have to deal with you and your decisions,” Kelly said. “Therefore, remove your mask and trust you.”

Next up for Kelly: a second edition of “Back Against The Wall” and a written work entitled, “Children Don’t Come With Instructions.”

Chances are, these forthcoming projects will be as good as advertised, much like the first book assembled by this author, who’s the founder and executive director of Purpose Over Popularity Youth Development Center, Incorporated, her nonprofit organization designed to create and develop outlets for youth in low-income areas so they can become thriving citizen.

An awe-inspiring written work that is comprised of 106 pages in length, Kelly’s “Back Against The Wall” appropriately pinpoints dreaded situations, during which life — as precious, yet fragile it is — is throwing you curve balls, around what this Christian-based writer describes as “the worlds and upper cuts” at the same time.

Nearly five four years removed from having produced her first book, Kelly still deems it a “Wow” moment to this day.

“Not to give away too much of the book, I actually have a character who speaks with God throughout her journey,” Kelly said. “This book aligns with my purpose for which I am called by using my gift to bring thought-provoking literature to those who can relate to the characters.”

This after having reached for the nearest pen and pad years ago from the comfortable confines of her the living room.

Tennessee author Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch addresses colleagues, millennials in ‘Soulful Prayers’


Give praise to the LORD, proclaim His name; make known among the nations what He has done. (Psalm 105:1 NIV)


CALL TO DISCIPLESHIP 

DIVINE CONNECTION — As Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Cheryl Polote-Williamson’s “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

DALLAS — No one has to pump Reverend Dr. Sonja Deloatch up to strike up a conversation about all of the hoopla surrounding the globally-acclaimed, bestselling winning written work that is “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God.”

I am excited about my collaboration with Cheryl Polote-Williamson in our new book #SoulfulPrayers,” Dr. Deloatch wrote in a recent social post before her 5,000 Facebook followers. “It’s ALMOST TIME! #SoulfulPrayers is an essential book for every believer––no matter where you are in your relationship with Him.”
And just like, Dr. Deloatch issued an essential reminder to the masses about an awe-inspiring, spiritually-enhancing book that is steadily have a massive in the Body of Christ — this amid less than a week removed from his much-anticipated released.
“It has been a long time; however, I was pressing the idea of writing, because I struggle that no one wanted to hear what I have to say,” said Deloatch, recalling the developments that preceded her quest to contribute to Soulful Prayers. “However, when I lost my husband, my heart just sunk.  Doing that course, I would see post of others who lost their husbands and I heard it clear this title: “A Conversation With God’ that did not include me.”

A book that was officially launched during a nationally-acclaimed ceremony here last weekend, “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” is forwarded by award-winning and bestselling author/businesswoman Cheryl Polote-Williamson.

As Dr. Deloatch explained during an interview this week with Making Headline News, that she had the fervent backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

“(For one, I had) someone who was doing the editing,” Dr. Deloatch said. “That took a lot of stress off of me. “Learning how stop and proof read a document has always been hard for me. However, I had to learn that much of what I was facing…the additional voices in my head of trying to get it so right that I could not cut it off.”

Once Dr. Deloatch had commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — with His usual reliable Self — was there to provide to increase.


SEASON OF THE REBIRTH 

As Dr. Deloatch explained, that she had the backing of a solid supporting cast that aided her mightily with regards to putting her authorship gifts on display also fueled her desire to contribute to Polote-Williamson’s ‘Soulful Prayers.”

How else to explain why it had taken this Murfreesboro, Tennessee-based writer somewhere in the neighborhood of about 15 minutes to compose her portion of a book that figures to have a global impact much sooner than later?

“Many people would say to me, you always seem to have it together,” said Dr. Deloatch, explaining the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her selected prayer. “I learned early as a child how to mask my emotions…and was told when I would say things, I was too loud, too strong-minded…a big personality.”

More than anything, Dr. Deloatch acknowledged, the prayer to which God assigned her to assemble for Soulful Prayers, is a spiritual road map, of sorts, for her colleagues.

Once Dr. Deloatch commenced to exercising her faith through her gifts as a Christian-based writer, God — His usual reliable Self — was there to plant to increase.

A native of Nashville, Dr. Deloatch is the Senior Pastor of Winters Chapel African Methodist Episcopal in Lebanon, Tennessee.


“I believe this prayer is looking at our clergy persons,” Dr. Deloatch explained. “I have been in the AME Church all my life, and I trusted that whatever my Pastor said was the truth. He appeared to me to be a strong man, had a direct line to God and whatever I needed, he would get my message to God. However, now that I am a Pastor, I have my own relationship with Jesus, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”


“I know now that I am not perfect and my job is to introduce others to Who God is,” Dr. Deloatch said. “For clergy (men and women), we need to be real with God and not some superficial mask, preaching the Gospel. That we are human and we bring the word to all those who want to hear it, we (also) are servants and we suffer just like Jesus, Who wept for the lost. He wept for us and we are caring a burden of life and pain like others.”

And because Dr. Deloatch doesn’t shy away from the notion that she’s completely sold out to God Almighty for the rest of her days on this side of heaven, rest assured that as it pertains to possessing and retaining a solid prayer life, she’s destined to routinely enlighten the world of just how mandatory talking to God is, especially during these perilous times.

For what it’s worth, Dr. Deloatch emphasized that the message that she and her colleagues in the Body of Christ preaches to God’s people is especially vital for today’s youths.

“The young people — these millennials — want to see the authentic self of us,” said Dr. Deloatch, adding that the feedback since the release of “Soulful Prayers: The Power of Intentional Communication With God” have been overwhelmingly favorable. “(This book) has provided a platform to start a conversation with God. It has brought me to place of deeper understanding about a more personal relationship with Christ Jesus.”

An “understanding” she’s especially destined to pass along and put on display not just before those in the Body of Christ, but for those who aspire to establish a wholesome, more meaningful relationship with our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Mid-South AAU hoops player Christian Brown following in foosteps of his mom and dad

BEAST MODE 

REMEMBER THE NAME — To his credit, AAU basketball standout Christian Brown went into beast mode during what was a memorable AAU game between Brown’s Murfreesboro, Tennessee-area Storm squad versus Eagleville. In a game that will go down as arguably the most memorable one to date for Brown, his Storm team faced a 12-point deficit with inside of two minutes remaining. That is when spectators witnessed flashes of greatness surrounding a kid who’s nearing 6-foot as a preteen.

He’s only 12 years of age.

But for a youth basketball player, Christian Brown is a beast on the court.

To his credit, he certainly went into full beast mode during what was a memorable AAU game between Brown’s Murfreesboro, Tennessee-area Storm squad versus Eagleville.

In a game that will go down as arguably the most memorable one to date for Brown, his Storm team faced a 12-point deficit with inside of two minutes remaining.
That is when spectators witnessed flashes of greatness surrounding a kid who’s nearing 6-foot as a preteen.
Brown was the catalyst for a Storm team that stormed back in the waning moments, erasing a double-digit deficit and miraculously coming away with a 50-49 victory, having outscored the opposition, 18-3, the rest of the way.
In manufacturing 17 points in what was an AAU game for the ages, Brown managed some late heroics when he stole an in-bounds pass and was fouled as a result.

His two clutch free throws helped the Storm ease out to the final margin and, most importantly, his immeasurable display proved to be a microcosm of his resiliency for which he customarily exemplifies in close-game situations.

So remember the name, much sooner than later: Christian Brown.

Because if there’s one thing he’s proven, it’s that his best and brightest days are well ahead of him.

“I always tell him he’s destined for greatness and to always make the most of each day,” said Chelsea Brown, Christians’s mother, during interview with Making Headline News this week. “That day will be confirmation of what we speak into his life on a daily basis.”

If anyone can appropriately assess — and critique — Christian’s progress on and off the court, it’s his mother.

Chelsea Brown was a basketball standout in her own right, most notably in high school, where she starred for perennial power Memphis Whitehaven (from 1990 to 1992), which boasted a number of Division 1 recruits. Brown went on to star at SWAC member Southern University from 1992 to 1995, capping off what was stellar basketball tenure for the native Memphian.


RESPECT DA HAVEN

IN RETROSPECT — Christian Brown’s mother, Chelsea Brown, was a basketball standout in her own right, most notably in high school, where she starred for perennial power Whitehaven (from 1990 to 1992), which boasted a number of Division 1 recruits.

Given that her son seems on path to following in the footsteps of his parents – both his mother and father are former athletes — it’s safe to assume that, well, the apple didn’t fall very far from the tree (with all due respect).

“Of course, I will be overjoyed to see his dreams and aspirations come to fruition,” said Chelsea Brown how special would it be if her son is fortunate to sign a National Letter of Intent to play college basketball. “But most of all, I’m thankful for the opportunity for him to continue to grow as an athlete.”

Chances are, the 5-foot-10 Christian Brown will grow — literally and figuratively — in the foreseeable future as he looks ahead to next season as one of the marquee players for Rocky Fork Middle School in Smyrna, Tennessee.

A slim 113-pounder — yet with so much growing to do and weight to put on — Christian often rotates between playing the small forward and shooting guard positions.

In addition to his attractive length for a 12-year-old, he’s proven to hold his own and make his presence felt, particularly against bigger and more experienced players, a trend that shouldn’t merely come as a surprise, considering Christian began playing competitive basketball at five years of age for the Rutherford County basketball league.

“He beat everyone down the court and played good defense,” Chelsea Brown said. “And he was the tallest kid on the court most of the time.”

The possibility exist that will surely be the case when he transitions to the prep basketball ranks, an attribute that figures to garner the attention of scouts and recruiters.


“He never ceases to amaze me,” Chelsea said her son’s continuous progress. “I love watching him exceed my expectations through growth and development. He always plays to the end.”

He sure does.

Remember that recent game against Eagleville?

His mother sure does. There’s a good chance she won’t be forgetting it, either.

FULL RIDE — Brown (in powder blue) went on to star at SWAC member Southern University from 1992 to 1995, capping off what was stellar basketball tenure for the native Memphian.

“I actually witnessed him lead his team to victory with two minutes on the clock and they were down by 12,” said Chelsea in pure wonderment. “I saw it in his eyes. He reads his opponents and went into (attack mode) and came out victorious.”

That, to his credit, figures to be a sign of things to come — much sooner than later.


“My parents always tell me that as long as I work hard, developing as a student-athlete, they will always provide an avenue for me to succeed,” said Christian, who recently was the beneficiary of the Athlete Academic Award, given to the student-athlete with the highest grade point average (he manufactured a 3.6 GPA), as well as being named Offensive Player of the Year in both football and basketball.

In addition to his attractive length for a 12-year-old, he’s proven to hold his own and make his presence felt, particularly against bigger and more experienced players, a trend that shouldn’t merely come as a surprise, considering Christian began playing competitive basketball at five years of age for the Rutherford County basketball league.

“My dad is always there to support me, and his presence always motivates me to play hard.”

Interestingly, although he has plenty of basketball left to play before bolting the high prep ranks, Christian doesn’t shy away from the notion that’s he’s presently auditioning for a full-ride athletic scholarship.

As far as he’s concerned, there’s no time to waste, not when he’s closing in on 6-feet in height as a preteen and making his presence felt against more experienced players.

“I would like (scouts and recruiters) to know that I am a hard worker and coachable,” said Christian, who will attend a hoops camp at Duke University over the summer. “I am a team player and have experience, playing every position on the floor. Most of all, I’m always open to learning and using skills learned from camps and other resources.”

Memphis businessman/author Tony Jackson’s new book blossoms into forthcoming movie

MEMPHIS MADE

DALLAS — Tony Jackson just keeps on making major strides.

A young, thriving Mid-South-area businessman, Jackson is not only having an immeasurable, continuous impact on the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape, but with the help of his beloved companion, Monica Jackson, Tony Jackson has managed to savor yet another milestone, one that’s centered largely on — brace yourselves — producing a movie.

Yep. This isn’t merely a typo. Rather, it’s reality, an awe-inspiring development that surfaced, courtesy of Tony Jackson’s book entitled, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

Interestingly, the Jacksons’ movie stems from Chapter 4 of his book  entitled, “The Story Of Randolph,” which is available for purchase at Walmart.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Amazon.com. To his credit, Tony Jackson allows viewers access to the daily life of a Pastor, who’s struggling with being a manfirst and foremost, and then a Pastor.

Randolph, as Jackson explained during a recent interview with Making Headline News, is under a constant monitoring by people around him, considering he’s eager to do what this producers deems as “regular things,” thus become actively engaged in having fun without being bound by the “Bishop” title that he carries.

“He is a young Bishop and feels he has been bottled, because of the title, and the expectations of people.” Tony Jackson said of Bishop Randolph, who’s characterized by rising actor Mynoris Woods.

Interestingly, the Jacksons’ movie stems from Chapter 4 of his book that’s entitled, “The Story Of Randolph,” which is available for purchase at Walmart.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, and Amazon.com. To his credit, Tony Jackson allows viewers access to the daily life of a Pastor who’s struggling with being the man first and foremost, and then a Pastor second.

The young lady he’s diligently pursuing is up-and-coming actress Sweetrica Baker, who plays “Kelly” in this newly-produced film. The other main character is “Aunt Julie” (Kelly’s Aunt), who’s original name is Mrs. Mary White.

Surely, while the “The Story Of Randolph” figures to be an intriguing and informative movie, MHN deemed it essential to speak with other cast members of the Jacksons’ forthcoming project.

That said, we present to you a dose of our Q’s and A’s.

 

ABOUT TO BE LIT — This isn’t merely a typo. Rather, it’s reality, an awe-inspiring development that surfaced, courtesy of Tony Jackson’s book entitled, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

MHN: What production company did you partner with on this movie?

TONY JACKSON: I’m glad you asked. We went with one of the dopest film makers out of Nashville named Victoria Jones. Her company is VaJones Films, In addition to VaJones, she brought on All-Star editor/film crew member Clarence Scott of CScottRun Productions. Additionally, they flew in another bright mind from Nashville: Kevin Mumphrey of Kevin Mumphrey MumphreyProductionsLLC, who also does production and sound. And my wife, Monica R. Jackson, and myself are co-directors, and together, we makeup Jackson4CompaniesLLC. This is a dynamic team. They have been a part of a lot of major projects over the years, including the show, “Nashville.”

MHN: What do you like most about being an actress and playing the role of Kelly?

SWEETRICA BAKER: I enjoy becoming the character. I have always had an appreciation for the arts. It has always been a part of my life in one form or another. My mother always desired for me to do something in modeling, but for years, I was self-conscious about my body and even my skin, so I settled for acting classes in my youth. As I have grown older and learned to appreciate life and the various ways we live it, I have learned to embrace my curves and everything about me that makes me different from everyone else. As an actress, you get to step outside of yourself and become someone else. It is easy for me to feel what my character is feeling, but at some point I was there, too. I understand Kelly not wanting to be burned, especially by a man of the cloth. When you are attached to a messenger of God’s word, you are voluntarily exposed to other’s judgments constantly. The man, not the minister, can’t show that he is fallible. The woman attached to him seems to be held accountable for not only his public image, but her’s and everyone attached to them. I can’t image every first lady’s burden.

Randolph, as Jackson explained to Making Headline News during a recent interview, is under a constant monitoring by people around him, considering he’s eager to do what this producers deems as “regular things,” thus become actively engaged in having fun without being bound by the “Bishop” title that he carries.

MHN: Mynoris Woods, or Bishop if I may ask, What do you like most about being an actor and playing the role of Randolph?

MYNORIS WOODS: It allows me to formulate and understanding for my character and to actually bring my character to life. And playing Randolph in the movie is nothing short of a blessing. It is amazing to play a role that’s so many people and so many clergy individuals have had to deal with on a daily basis, being judged just because they are a man or woman of the cloth. I love playing Randolph. It is one of the most exciting roles I’ve ever had in my life it actually reminds me of myself — LOL — but don’t tell no one.

MHN: What are amongst the age groups to whom your endeavor caters to?

MONICA JACKSON: I think we are attempting to cater to everyone, but putting a special focus on the church goers, people of faith, or anyone that puts people on pedestals knowingly or unknowingly. People in these positions are people first and their title second. They are watched so closely and are stressed a lot of times because they feel they are on that line.

MHN: In your own words, why is it imperative that you esteem and inspire others daily?

TONY JACKSON: Because life is hard. Literally every day, you have to get up and choose to be happy. Happy to me is a mindset. Very simple way I look at it. I control my feelings. If I’m happy, I’m happy, if I’m sad, I’m sad. As it relates to most things, if you say you’re going to do something, simply because you tried, you’ve succeeded. Failure is no such thing. But you’ll have to read all about that in my book, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given.”

ACTION JACKSON 

A young, thriving Mid-South-area businessman, Tony Jackson has not only having an immeasurable impact on the Mid-South-area entrepreneurship landscape, but with the help of his beloved companion, Monica Jackson, Tony Jackson has managed to savor yet another milestone, one that’s centered largely on — brace yourselves — producing movie.

MHN: Anything else you’d like to add to this story?

MONICA JACKSON: Yes, be on the lookout for “The Story Of Randolph” and “The Man Of The Cloth” and purchase the book, “The Fair Shot That Was Never Given” by my husband, Tony M. Jackson, to get ahead of the story. This is just one of the stories out of the book. There are five more that you will be blessed by.

Nashville businesswoman Tamica Ross’ organization helping people ‘make their dreams a reality’


Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. (Galatians 6:9 NIV)


DALLAS — Just before 10 p.m. CST on Sunday, Tamica Ross took to her Facebook page, where she shared with the masses a rather spirited, blissful announcement.

Said Ross to her gallery of social media followers: Hello FB Friends and Family! I am so excited to announce my upcoming news article. I’m making headlines. Thanking God for this awesome opportunity.


WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Tamica Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.
For Ross, a Mid-South-area businesswoman, she has every right to share of some favorable news that, much to her delight, is a pivotal reminder of just how much God is using her for His glory.
“This business was birthed by (my) own deep desires and determination to live my best life despite the challenges of growing up in an underprivileged environment, where I became a teenage mother at the age of 16 years old,” Ross, during a weekend interview with Making Headline News, said of her quest in establishing what has emerged as a credible endeavor.

WHAT ABOUT TAMICA’S ORGANIZATION? www.laneseempowerment.com

A native of West Tennessee — most notably the Jackson area that is housed in Madison County — Ross is the Founder and CEO of Lanese Empowerment, a Nashville-based company that is centered largely on inspiring and aiding individuals, particularly youths, as well as young adult men and women.

As Ross specifically acknowledged, amongst her coaching venture’s strategic objectives is to empower individuals to live their best lives and, most importantly, to make all their dreams a reality.


“Tamica is on a mission to touch over a million people by empowering them to turn fear into faith, passion into purpose, confusion into clarity, gain self-confidence, and the tools needed to take action now, one step at a time on a journey well done,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ Lanese Empowerment. “She is determined to help those with deep desires to help themselves, reach their full potential, and have fun doing it while living their best lives and making all their dreams a reality.”


For Ross, establishing her coaching organization didn’t merely come easy. Not by a long shot.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the greatest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

DREAMING BIG — Interestingly and to her distinctly unique credit, Ross’ venture has come full circle, courtesy of her resiliency through life coaching, free tools and resources, speaking engagements, writing books, providing scholarship funds, summer youth programs, yearly conferences for men and women, and through D.R.E.A.M.S.

Not to be outdone, though, Ross’ thought process was such that if she would persevere long enough, she’d ultimately reap and possess and results she so desperately sought.

The rest, as they say, was history, considering she did just that.

“I refuse to be that person who was afraid to help others succeed,” Ross said. “Therefore, I have dedicated the rest of my life as a life strategist for others with the mission to empower all people, including men, women, and youths to be the best they can be and help make their dreams a reality.”

Interestingly and to her distinctly unique credit, Ross’ venture has come full circle, courtesy of her resiliency through life coaching, free tools and resources, speaking engagements, writing books, providing scholarship funds, summer youth programs, yearly conferences for men and women, and through D.R.E.A.M.S.

HARVEST SEASON UNFOLDING

An academy that’s comprised of a six week training program D.R.E.A.M.S. is designed to walk people through the steps needed to make any dream a reality and live their best lives one day at a time, Ross emphasized.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee.

Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

As for her coaching organization, she said such inspiration arose from the wide counsel of her mother, whom she says was “strong enough” to beat a drug addiction.

According to the Chester County High School graduate, arguably the biggest challenge she faced was attracting sustained support from people she sensed had endured similar hardships with which she once struggled.

“My grandmother and stepfather have always seen the very best in me,” said Ross, paying homage to others to have paved the way to her success. “My godfather, who has always been a transformational leader in my life, my godmother, who taught me how to love God with all my heart, my children, whom I am dedicated to showing how to live your best life, and some wonderful mentors and leaders in the industry such as Tony Robbins, Valerie Burton, and even Oprah (Winfrey)…as an African American successful women, who started from the bottom and now look at what she has become.”

Given the immeasurable strides Ross has made since the startup of Lanese Empowerment, it’s safe to assume her best and brightest days are well ahead of her — days that will include, among other things, the forthcoming release of her starting lineup of books.

“She is looking forward to releasing her new book series,” said a spokesperson for Ross’ organization.

All things considered, Ross is giddy in that she can finally profess she’s walking fervently in her God-ordained purpose.

Having resided in Nashville for the past decade-and-a-half, Ross holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Organizational Leadership and Communication from Bethel University in McKenzie, Tennessee. Consequently, she earned a Master’s in Organizational Management from Nashville’s Belmont University.

“I was told when I started this business that I needed to define a niche,” Ross said. “Well I did and that’s all people who have the desire and passion to live an extraordinary life despite the challenges of bad credit, debt, failed marriages, loss of a job, low self-esteem, terrible childhood, underprivileged environments, or lack of joy in their hearts, confusion about their path in life, bad grades, teenage pregnancy, drug addiction, and even those who need clarity on their career paths.

“God didn’t put me on this earth to help everyone, because I know there are some they I may not be able to reach. However, there are more that I can reach, and I am looking forward to giving it all I got.”

That, to her credit, is worthy of making headlines.

St. Louis author/educator Seletha Tucker attracting a wave of media coverage with four books and counting


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES SELETHA TUCKER


DALLAS — Seletha Marie Head Tucker’s authorship resume is such that she’s walking steadfastly in the divine purpose for which God created her.

Especially during a notable stretch that spans somewhere in the neighborhood of six years.

That’s because between October 2012 and August 2018, Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.


TEACHER’S BOOK FAIR 

DESTINY STEPS — Between October 2012 and August 2018, St. Louis author Seletha Marie Head Tucker has assembled four awe-inspiring books, her latest of which figures to advance the kingdom mightily, much sooner than later.

A St. Louis-based writer — by way of Memphis — Tucker’s latest book is entitled, “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?”

A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged had come full circle amid much reflection and brainstorming.

A MUST READ — A spiritually gut-checking written document that is comprised of 114 pages, Tucker’s “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” is approximately four months removed from its much-anticipated release, a project this Christian-based author acknowledged was proceeded by much reflection and brainstorming.

“I began to think about some of the things that I have been through and others have gone through, and God began to deal with me about telling my story to help others women, not just single (women), but those who feel like they have to go all out to find a husband,” Tucker told Making Headline News this week. “You hear so much about women trying to find their Boaz when the Bible says, ‘he that finds a wife, finds a good thing and obtains favor of the Lord.’”

To her credit, Tucker has gone to great lengths through her latest book to caution women, most notably those who harbor the lofty expectation of attracting what they describe as that “perfect man” or their “Boaz,” as she appropriately singles out in her newest book.


“Many want that man to be the perfect guy, coming to them and often they are not prepared for that man, because of past relationships, hurts, and even soul ties. I want to encourage women and also help them understand what can happen when you don’t seek God for yourself and also prepare yourself for being a spouse.” — Author Seletha Marie Head Tucker 


BUY SELETHA’S FIRST BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Its-Time-Pray-Lord-Teach/dp/1478719087

PRAY WITHOUT CEASING — A 44-page written document, Tucker’s “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray” has been overwhelming dubbed a “must read,” considering it is a rather uplifting book filled with fervent prayers, many of which are accompanied by what this writer refers to as “promises to inspire, encourage, uplift, and to give you strength to make it one more day,” according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s book in an Amazon.com synopsis.

Prior to connecting with her vision to assemble a “When You Go To The Pit Of Hell To Find a Husband: Where’s My Boaz?” book that was officially released on August 2, Tucker had authored three other books.

A longtime educator, Tucker made her authorship debut in October 2012 when she witnessed the release of her first book entitled, “It’s Time to Pray: Lord, Teach Us How to Pray.”

BUY SELETHA’S SECOND BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Hat-Melinda-Fighting-Leukemia-Together/dp/162086164X

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively for children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.

In a nutshell, Tucker’s initial book is comprised mostly of prayers for practically every occasion, special days, or even that special person in your life, she acknowledged.

Then there is Book No. 2, this one that is entitled, “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together.”

Officially released on August 6, 2013, Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” is a book that is dedicated exclusively to children ranging in ages four-to-eight years of age and it depicts the life of the characters, Melinda and Andrea, both of whom had been friends for years.


BUY SELETHA’S THIRD BOOK HERE: https://www.amazon.com/Stephens-Presentation-Seletha-Tucker/dp/1620867265

Not to be outdone, Tucker assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

While anxiously awaiting the last days of school before summer, Andrea finds that Melinda is not in school. What happens will both amaze and excite you as you learn about the importance of true friendship, according to a spokesperson for Tucker’s “A Hat For Melinda: Fighting Leukemia Together” at Amazon.com.

Not to be outdone, Tucker then assembled “Stephen’s Presentation: Learning About Sickle Cell Anemia,” a 38-page project that made its presence on the market on December 2, 2014.

For Tucker, an elementary school teacher in St. Louis metropolitan area who has a Master’s Degree in Early Childhood Education, she always sensed that she would ultimately delve off into the ever-so-competitive world of authorship.

STAY TUNED — Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

“I began writing years ago and started sending out prayers,” said Tucker, who’s currently pursuing a Master’s in Special Education.” One of my sisters and husband suggested writing a book of prayers and I finally did in October 2012.

GOD’S LEADING LADY — Given the immeasurable strides she made during a six-year time span, it’s safe to assume she’s undoubtedly found her niche as an accomplished author.

Interestingly, Tucker announced that a published memoir dedicated to her mother and late father — which will include pictures and stories about her childhood along with pictures of each of her siblings — is presently in the works.

That’s not all, said Tucker, whose authorship tenure has given away to her having attracted a wave of exposure through the mainstream media.

“I am in the midst of publishing my first novel, which should be out by the beginning of the year entitled, ‘Cotton Pickin Southern Belle,’” Tucker said.

Accomplished Nashville author Raeshal Solomon completes her latest book in less than a week

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES RAESHAL SOLOMON


Raeshal Solomon is convinced that it is never too early to teach youngsters about the pros and cons of money.

“Parents need to understand that teaching their children about money can be easy and fun,” Solomon told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “They also need to know the importance of starting now.”

It is in large part because of these notable economic concepts that have greatly fueled Solomon’s desire to compose a book she senses will aid children mightily, particularly as it pertains to making wise monetary decisions as they mature in age.

MOM KNOWS BEST — A Nashville-area author, Raeshal Solomon is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “The 25 – 25 Strategies To Teach Your Child About Money,” her fourth published written document that was officially released on July 28.

A Nashville-area author, Solomon is the mastermind behind the book entitled, “The 25 – 25 Strategies To Teach Your Child About Money,” her fourth published written document that was officially released on July 28.

A book that is also known as “The 25,” Solomon’s latest project is a parent guide, of sorts, to teaching your children about money, courtesy of a book that has every day strategies, many of which any parent can use to make a complex subject like money fun and easy to talk about.

A book she began assembling approximately two months ago, Solomon — who technically has written somewhere in the neighborhood of two dozen  books — needed just six days to put the finishing touches on “The 25 – 25 Strategies To Teach Your Child About Money.”

A book that is also known as “The 25,” Solomon’s latest project is a parent guide to teaching your children about money, courtesy of a book that has every day strategies, many of which any parent can use to make a complex subject like money fun and easy to talk about.

“I wrote the first 4,800 words in only two days,” Solomon said. “After working with my editor, I was able to finalize the book in four more days.”

Surely, it’s safe to assume that it was 10 days well spent for this thriving, progressive writer, who also authored these published books: “Shop, Shop, Shop,” “Tim’s Red Rudy,” and “Gale’s Day of Giving.”

When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Solomon said, “My other books are tools to help parents, but they are children’s books focused on financial literacy as well.”

YOU GO GIRL!!! A book she began assembling approximately two months ago, Solomon — who technically has written somewhere in the neighborhood of two books — needed just six days to put the finishing touches on “The 25 – 25 Strategies To Teach Your Child About Money.”

As expected, the feedback since the release of “The 25” has been mostly favorable for this native of Johns Island, South Carolina. 

“People love what I have created,” Solomon said. “They find my books to be helpful.”

Having recently wrapped up a book tour, during which former NFL player Darius A. Robinson had the pleasure of reading several of Solomon’s books to a gallery of elementary students, Solomon emphasized that the purpose for which God has created her as an author is to teach children about money while they are young.

MISSION ACCOMPLISHED — When asked what is the divine message she’s sending to her reading audience through her latest book, Solomon said, “My other books are tools to help parents, but they are children’s books focused on financial literacy as well.”

“We can raise more children who are givers and who are grateful,” Solomon said. “I honestly write what God places in my heart. I never know what He will give me next.”

Besides other forthcoming books, Solomon recently established a kids’ podcast called, “PodKash Kids,” which is geared largely toward what she describes as kid entrepreneurs.

Accomplished Mid-South businessman Oginga Carr: ‘It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams’

Earlier this week, Oginga Carr was asked why it is imperative that he esteem and inspire others daily.

To his credit, Carr fielded the question as if he expected it.

MAKING MAJOR STRIDES — Much to his delight, Oginga Carr has evolved as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

“Without inspiration, there is no life,” Carr said during an interview with Making Headline News this week. “We need to be not only inspired, but edified.  When we edify one another we grow.  I really don’t care about your what or your why. I care about your how.  We help people find their how.”

Indeed he does.

Carr, in fact, has evolved mightily as an efficient and resourceful businessman, most notably through Epiphany Consulting LLC, a Mid-South-area company that is widely regarded as an organizational structure venture that customarily helps with coaching and consulting for businesses and individuals so that they could appropriately find compliance and clarity.

A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

“Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

NATIONAL PRESENCE — A native of Little Rock, Arkansas who has been dubbed “One of America’s Top Trainers,” according to various media pundits in a detailed description of Carr’s venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com/, Carr doesn’t shy away from the notion that Epiphany Consulting is unique, in large part because human resources is something we all need.

For what it’s worth, this is where Carr’s progressively effective business comes into play.

A proud of alum of Little Rock Parkview High School — where the former multi-sport athlete lettered in football, basketball, and baseball — Carr also is an accomplished author, a national seminar leader, as well as an organizational structure expert and consultant.

Interestingly, this Henderson State University graduate is armed with roughly 17 years of experience in sales, management, and Human Resources.

“His passion is in the dynamic of change…dealing with it, working through it, and preparing for it,” said a spokesperson in a detailed description of Carr and his venture at http://www.ogingacarr.com.

Not only that, Carr’s professional resume is solid and diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr’s primary focuses are geared largely on productivity through structure and human capital development, and he has trained tens of thousands of HR professionals in approximately 49 U. S. states.

Which, much to his delight, is mostly befitting, considering Carr has even had a hand in functioning as a magazine publisher, radio and television show host, not to mention having assumed the role as executive director of a non-profit foundation, among other capacities.

Moreover, Carr’s primary focuses are geared largely on productivity through structure and human capital development, and he has trained tens of thousands of HR professionals in approximately 49 U. S. states.

“My mission is to develop more clarity, content, and consistency in our lives,” Carr said. “If we are clear about our goals, then content of those goals are achievable and we can be consistent in our actions. We can be successful in our lives.”

REMARKABLE TRACK RECORD — Carr’s professional resume is especially diverse, considering he has worked in the telecommunications, flooring, and print industries. For those reasons, he has been appropriately labeled a “serial entrepreneur,” of sorts.

Carr credits the bulk of his success as a thriving businessman to his father, whom he said was undoubtedly one of the biggest inspirations in his life.

Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

“That means that people who are striving to achieve goals in life are related by their love and passion to improve, even if they are not related by blood,” Carr added. “I welcome all Dream Achievers to my family.”

There is, by all accounts, a valid reason for which Carr essentially has rolled out the figurative red carpet to those who aspire to connect with him.

LISTEN TO HIM — “Our unique proposition is that we offer you help at developing structure in your organization and your life,” said Carr, whose immense entrepreneurship track record spans a little more than a decade. “Many times business owners are great at a skill, but aren’t very good at the business.”

“We live by a hashtag, #teamcrushingit,” Carr said. “That means that we are crushing those obstacles that are in front of us.  We are getting to our goals faster than we thought we could.  We are crushing life.”

In the foreseeable future, Mid-Southerners — Memphians in particular — will be afforded the golden opportunity to learn more about Carr and Epiphany Consulting in a trio of informative events:

  • I Dream I Achieve: The Business Blueprint.  This event is geared toward developing the mindset and the business structure to succeed in business.  “It is the best business development conference in the Mid-South,” Carr said. “We develop events that are all about giving you the skills that you need to be great.”
  • DAD KNEW BEST — Though Carr’s father passed away in 2007, he acknowledged that “he lives with me every day in my actions. He believed that we are a family related by affinity, if not through consanguinity.”

    The Breakthrough Accelerator Bootcamp. “This event is all about accelerating those breakthroughs in your life,” Carr said. “In that event, we celebrated the rebirth of your dreams. How can we cultivate those dreams and be ready to be great?”

  • The Limitless Summit.  “This event is all about creating a limitless life and limitless business,” Carr explained. “What are the keys to living limitless?  We develop those there.”

Also, Carr announced that two new events are presently in the works: Limitless Summit in Fort Worth, Texas and the IDIA Mastermind Retreat in Mexico, where attendees will engage in a five-day experience, during which they will, as Carr said, make those quantum leaps in our lives.

“It is my destiny to help 10,000 people achieve their dreams in 2018,” Carr said. “We are helping people achieve those dreams through products, events, coaching, and consulting, and we are so happy about the outcomes.”
