Florida author Shemeka L. McNair’s choosing to ‘wait on God’ has resulted in her gifts making room for her

MAKING HEADLINE NEWS MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD. (Psalm 27:14 KJV)


WAITING FOR GOD’S APPROVAL 

TRUSTING THE PROCESS — Florida author Shemeka McNair’s featured written work is entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” a 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

Just before midday EST on Saturday, Shemeka L. McNair took to her Facebook page, where she staged before her social media followers a rather forthright and riveting post that essentially had come wrapped up in a self-declaration, of sorts.

Said McNair in on her timelime:
This year, I will shake hands with million dollar investors. They will fund my vision in its entirety. Then I will become a millionaire and I will shake hands with people like me and I will fund their vision. Not only will I soon be a millionaire I will produce other millionaires for the Glory of God! I walk in this type of favor!! I am anointed for this.
Talk about shooting her spiritual shot. Talk about keeping it 100.
Talk about some making an emphatic, dauntless, in-your-face profession, one that figures to change not just the life of McNair but, most importantly, virtually an entire generation.
If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

One in particular is McNair’s featured written work entitled, “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” the 170-page project that jumpstarted her authorship debut when it was ceremoniously released in 2016.

“I wrote the book, because I was single for so long time and, at a certain point in my wait, I became tired of waiting and begin to make really (ill-advised) choices in men,” McNair, a native of Magee, Mississippi, told Making Headline News this week. “I lowered — basically got rid of — all of the standards I had and I just started to go with the flow of the dating scene. I bumped my head and had my heart broken so many times, I lost count.”

As McNair vividly explained, it wasn’t until God had her strategically confined inside of her vehicle that greatly enabled her to — for a lack of better words — see a light bulb moment, particularly it relates to her unfavorable decision-making in dating.


“One night, in the year 2011, I was sitting in the car, crying over a relationship and I begin to ask God, ‘Why is this happening to me? Why does this keep happening to me?’” — Florida Author Shemeka McNair 


As she consequently found out, God — His usual reliable Self — had provided her with some much-needed sense of direction.

“I heard a Voice say, ‘Write about it,’” McNair explained. “What type of response is that? I’m crying and You tell me to write about it. As time passed, I begin to journal about whatever I was going through in the relationships and courtships.”

LISTEN UP — As for the divine message she’s sending to her audience through “Impatiently Waiting: Don’t Rush Love,” McNair said, “If you can wait, you can have whatever it is you want. When we rush we have everything we don’t want…like the wrong partner, toxic relationships, and situations we should have never been a part of. We all have a due season. We just have to enjoy, not despise our wait, because it will always be worth the wait.”

And before she knew it, she was on path to assuming the role of an author, a trend that has given way to this Orlando-based writer and businesswoman assembling three additional books, one of which is presently in the works and about to be headed for the printer.

Aside from an “Impatiently Waiting” book that has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show,” McNair also authored:

“Behind the Scenes Of Success,” which was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after the first one. Then in January 2019, she published “On the Road To Recovery.”

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

As McNair can boldly admit today, she’s grateful to God for having assigned her to speak along such a thought-provoking, spiritually-empowering topic for such a time as now.

McNair’s “Behind the Scenes Of Success” was released in December 2017, or approximately 10 months after her first book.

“Many people have said to me that I will write books, but I didn’t know how or where to start,” McNair said. “So I just started to write down what I thought I should be writing until one day in 2015, I was visiting a church and the pastor asked me to stand and he said to me, ‘I see you journaling. I see you are writing a lot.’”

Surely, such a public prophesy essentially was God speaking to McNair through one of His spokespersons.

McNair’s “On the Road To Recovery” debuted in January of this year.

To her credit, it’s a good thing she took heed to that which God revealed to her.

Continued the Pastor: “God said for you to hurry up and write the book and he will send the finances.”

STAR POWER — McNair’s “Impatiently Waiting”has caught the attention of actress Keshia Knight Pulliam, who’s famously known for her childhood role as Rudy Huxtable in the classic NBC sitcom, “The Cosby Show.”

And just like that, McNair’s authorship tenure was officially underway, an awe-inspiring development that given way to four books — and counting.

“That put a fire under me and I was trying to write, but didn’t know what I should be writing,” McNair said.

Once she had finally found her niche as an accomplished author, God, in turn, had provided the increase.

GLIMPSE OF GOD’S GLORY — If, by chance, God deems it essential to bring that about which McNair has publicly declared to fruition, in all likelihood, she’ll be exchanging pleasantries with millionaires, who will surely express interest in her gallery of books.

“I have received great feedback from everyone,” McNair said of her assortments, especially the first one. “They feel the book is real and relatable. Even men have said the book was a great read.”

Chances are, those millionaires with whom she will eventually cross paths will share the same sentiments.

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


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


BLESSED REGARDLESS 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Never mind that she’s from inner city Shreveport.

Detroit author Lakina Fulks connects with her God-given purpose through her newly-produced book


And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 NIV)


PURPOSED FOR PAIN

HERE’S WHY — A native of Detroit, Lakina Fulks is the author of the book entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

Amongst the things to which Lakina Fulks can greatly attest is that an array of pain and discomfort typically emerge amid a divorce.

Nevertheless, amongst the notable factors to which she can also substantiate is that if you stay in faith in the wake of a marital dissolution, God can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“It was one day in prayer as I was crying so hard going through a bad divorce that God spoke to me a said write the book now, and in that moment, He gave me the title of the book,” Fulks told Making Headline News this week.

The book to which Fulks is alluding is her newly-assembled written document entitled, “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth,” a 120-page project that officially made its presence on the market on February 3, 2019.

“When He said, ‘Why,’ I was like, ‘why?’” said Fulks, explaining her vision for composing her recently-released book. “He said in every moment of my life, I always asked why and He will reveal why, and now I know and understand why and I am so grateful.”

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

GOD-ORDERED STEPS 

According to detailed synopsis of “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” at https://www.amazon.com/WHY-young-girls-search-truth/dp/057821055X, Fulks writes that empowerment essentially is within what she describes as a “young girl’s call for help.”

Moreover, she emphasized, “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story.”

SHE’S JUST WARMING UP — A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

Never mind if some will, in fact, find it overwhelmingly difficult to come to grips with the occasionally unfavorable situations and circumstances that often arise in this thing called life.

A Detroit-area accomplished writer, Fulks said her divine purpose for having produced “WHY: A Young Girl’s Search For The Truth” arose as God’s strategic way to connect her with the purpose for which she was created.

“Even though you don’t understand the reason for your trials and tribulations, there is another side to your pain if you,” said Fulks, when asked what is divine message she’s sending to her audience through her new book. “Your story is meant to help someone coming behind you with a familiar pain. And you have to show them that they too can come out and be healed.

“Most people acknowledge how candid and raw the content is,” Fulks continued. “But the truth is, it’s my story told and some parts (are told) verbatim. And it’s not always easy to read. But once they settle in for the story, most readers say how they are able to find parts of themselves expressed through various characters, and it is freeing knowing that they aren’t alone in some of the things they suffered.”

ADVANCING THE KINGDOM — Having commenced to writing her first book sometime in 2015, Fulks needed somewhere in the neighborhood of four years to culminate a project she said has given way to an array of favorable feedback, coupled with a few scheduled speaking engagements in the coming months.

A book that has generated an immeasurable amount of success since its release, Fulks said other projects are surely on the horizon in the foreseeable future.

“There are definitely other books that I believe that God will birth out of me, but there is still a growth and healing taking place in me since the release of this book,” Fulks said. “I have started creating a journal to go along with the book that will be available this summer. The idea came when my book was asked to be in a book club and they would like a journal, so now I am doing one.”

Much to her delight, coupled with the divine calling on her life, amongst the things of which Fulks is especially grateful is that she birthed her book out of an act of obedience to God.

IN HER OWN WORDS — “I believe that God wanted me to write this as a part of my purpose in life. Yes it was hard having to go through it, but I believe that God turns our mess in to messages. And writing this book is just the beginning of what God wants me to do with my story,” Fulks said.

The same God Who can ultimately provide you with a silver-lining, of sorts, as His strategic way of bringing about a sense of spiritual relief.

“All of us are born with a cross that we must bear just like Christ,” Fulks said. “And I suffered a lot as a child and my early adult years. But the awesome thing about God is that all things work together for our good. And this book is a part of the big picture of what I was purposed for. Had I believed that pain was the only part of my life experience, this book would have never come to past. But God….”

She’s got that right.

But God…

OMG! Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique’s ‘The Wife Between Us’ is a huge must read

OK-CARING FOR OTHERS

THREE AND COUNTING — To her credit, Oklahoma City author Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

DALLAS — As if Shanell Monique’s latest book isn’t a massive crowd-pleaser, wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

For what it’s worth, this one figures to leave Shanell Monique’s reading audience on the edge of its seats.

“My reason was to be a voice for other women,” Shanell Monique, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, said of her soon-to-be-released project. “Because we don’t understand why you were chosen to go through the storm, because you don’t understand the power of your blessings that follow, you can’t expect anyone to understand your struggles. To heal a wound you need to stop touching it.”

To her credit, Shanell Monique has gone to great lengths to appropriately empower women to abstain from bothering their emotional wounds in her newly-produced book project entitled, “The Wife Between Us,” her emotionally-driven project she needed less than a year to produce — from February 2018 to January 2019 to be exact.

As Shanell Monique emphasized, her divine purpose for having assembled “The Wife Between Us” is centered largely on three strategic words: “Preserve Your Power,” she said with such authority.

Wait, there’s more, this brilliantly creative Oklahoma City-based author acknowledged.

“You can’t be powerful in your money, your love or your happiness if you’re always giving it away,” said Shanell Monique, further alluding to her book’s key points as only she could. “Not everybody and everything is worth your energy.”

Especially when such energy is being taken away — or even eradicated — amid things and situations that could potentially prove devastating to one’s destiny.


“Unplug from negative situations and people. Let them go. Turn them off. Hit delete. Press stop. Press pause. If you want a powerful relationship, stop feeding into negative energy. If you want a powerful paycheck, stop feeding into negative energy at work.” — OKC Author Shanell Monique 


As for life itself, as precious and as fragile it is, Shanell Monique’s got something for women who sense that life is short-changing them.

“If you want a powerful life, stop feeding doubt, fear, and insecurities,” she said. “Somebody needs to give you power. Somebody needs to love you back. Somebody needs to help you. Somebody needs to support you.”

STORY BEHIND THE STORY — Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

Because after all, “Sometimes that person is you,” Shanell Monique said. “Love yourself enough to preserve your power for the people and situations that are worth it. If you preserve your power, you’ll preserve yourself.”

Having authored  “Broken Silence” and “Love & Confidence Journal,” which were released in December 2017 and in April 2018, respectively, Shanell Monique said her inspiration for composing “The Wife Between Us” arose in the wake of her divorce.

“(That’s) when God really put it on my heart to finish my story,” said Shanell Monique, “and be a voice for women.”

That she’s certainly doing.

So wait ‘til you get a check of her forthcoming written work.

Georgia author Glenda Rena’s newly-produced book recalls her having overcome domestic violence


“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)


WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED

HARVEST SEASON — A native of Americus, Georgia-based, Glenda Rena (Ingram) is an author and devout woman of faith, who had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

DALLAS — Glenda Rena can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not the top.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.
For Glenda Rena — whose full name is Glenda Rena’ Ingram — it wasn’t merely a figurative nightmare that swiftly prompted her to awaken out of her sleep.

This was an authentic, gruesome nightmare, mind you, one that essentially caused her to question her very existence, one that, much to her delight, eventually fueled her desire to draw closer to God Almighty.

So much, in fact, that this is Americus, Georgia-based author and devout woman of faith had become greatly inspired to assemble an informative, awe-inspiring book that recalls her assortment of life-changing testimonies and experiences surrounding domestic violence.

To grasp a thorough understanding of why Glenda Rena has been appropriately deemed an overcomer, look no further than the downtrodden, disastrous, seemingly insurmountable season of her life, during which she had to press and navigate her way through the dreaded nightmare that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

The book to which Glenda Rena is alluding is her newly-produced written work entitled, “From Overtaken to Overcomer.”

A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“I chose to produce this book, because there are so many women living in domestic violence situations that think they are alone and who are losing their lives to this matter,” Glenda Rena told Making Headline News this week. “My book is to encourage them to know their self-worth. It’s to help them understand why self-love is the best love.”

Consequently, that such a chaotic season had essentially resulted in this youngster being saddled by low self-esteem, this writer appropriately recalls how she managed to outlast what she vividly labels her “overbearing afflictions.”

In a nutshell, she didn’t shy away from the notion that even while enduring arguably the darkest season of her young life, even when her faith had been placed on trial unlike never before, God had ultimately come to her rescue, having spiritually cross-examined her from harm’s way, as only He could.

Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to God’s throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

GOD’S LEADING LADY 

A MUST READ — A book she began constructing some time in 2016 and needed somewhere in the neighborhood of two years to assemble, Glenda Rena’s “From Overtaken to Overcomer” depicts the life of what this writer describes as a troubled young girl, whose childhood trauma shifts into a whirlwind of chaos, thus giving way to her being overtaken by a tumultuous firestorm that is domestic violence.

“The divine message is that once you begin to understand who you are, then no one will be able to come into your life to disrespect you, cause harm to you, or you won’t settle for just anyone and anything as mentioned in Ephesians 2:10,” Glenda Rena explained. “You will know and understand that you are God’s masterpiece. It will also show how having low self-esteem will cause you to make bad decisions and could possibly cause you your life by just settling.”


To her credit, Glenda Rena is extremely grateful in that God had strategically set her aside for His use, which, in turn, has greatly enabled her to produce a book that’s comprised of a great deal of transparency.

GOD’S SECRET PLACE — Now that she’s been blessed to ceremoniously make her authorship debut, Glenda Rena is especially grateful of the fact that even in the midst of her season in the wilderness, she was empowered spiritually to hasten to His throne, a place where she had ultimately found and possessed the breakthrough she so desperately sought.

“Being a victim of domestic violence, I encountered low self-esteem, depression, and had suicidal thoughts,” said Glenda Rena, adding that there are plans in the foreseeable future to assemble a 31-day devotional that will center largely on the empowering women. “This is where my one-day retreats come into play. We empower, uplift, and inspire women to become whole, healed, and free.”

Well said by this resilient woman of faith, one who can greatly attest to the notion that she’s been called a number of things.

“Overcomer” ranks near the very top of the list — if not tops.

Located at 835 NE Green Oaks Boulevard in Arlington, Tax Nation boasts a staff that is dedicated to providing excellent customer service, being knowledgeable of tax laws, and, most importantly, serving its respective community.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

For starters, Witt’s mother for years owned a licensed in-home daycare venture, which afforded her the golden opportunity to gain some hands on experience as a young businesswoman.

“I handled her clients, paid employees, collected money from parents, and had a curriculum for the children,” Witt recalled.

As it turned out, such a solid work ethic continued well into her high school years.

LOOK AT HER NOW — Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“While in high school, I was one of the leaders who started a step team and made it apart of the curriculum,” Witt explained. “We were the first black step team at Martin High School. After high school, I worked full time at an insurance company and went to Tarrant County Community College, (where) I was doing auditions for plays.”

A notable resume that also includes being a contestant in the Miss Black Texas pageant — she actually won the talent portion, largely because of her immeasurable acting skills — Witt eventually would become a founding member of the Beta Phi Chi Sorority/Fraternity that was spearheaded by Dennis Dotson.

Interestingly, she had become a fixture in the “What Should A Sista Do?” stage play.

For Witt, whose entrepreneurship expertise spans more than three decades — she initially adopted the business concept in junior high school, she recalls — it’s safe to assume that she had been destined to go into business for herself.

All things considered, Witt’s wealth of experience as a successful businesswoman has benefited her mightily throughout the years.

And, while taking questions from the media this week, Witt didn’t hesitate to emphasize that as a longtime professional tax preparer who boasts immeasurable success, she’s destined to make her presence felt in her native establishment of Arlington.

Never mind that a rash of stumbling blocks had essentially given way to her enduring an unlikely hiatus from her business.

“After a divorce, I let my business go after five years and I got back into the corporate world and went to school for taxes,” Witt said.


MRS. WITT IS LIT 

And, the rest, as they say, was history.

Having recaptured the competitive drive to thrive and flourish as entrepreneur, Witt would be the first to admit that she has no time to waste on things that aren’t adding any value to her God-given purpose.

“I inspire others by sharing my abusive experience with them and how God brought me out,” Witt said. “Being a business partner of Tax Nation has taught me even more in business. I want to educate all my clients to ensure them of their tax situation.”

Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

SHE ISN’T DONE YET — Thanks in large part to her remarkable body of work in her profession, Witt will be the afforded the golden opportunity to enhance and promote her brand in the coming months when she attends an IRS conference this summer.

Having been partnered with Tax Nation for the past five years, Witt has ventured off and started Divine Business Services, which customarily allows her to serve clients by aiding them to keep their business-related goals and ambitions intact.

“Out of my trials and tribulations I’ve been through, I’ve learned from them and turned them into a business and a way to help this upcoming generation,” Witt said.

She has no time to waste.

Every. Single. Day.

Carolina entrepreneur Alisha B. Allen deemed a ‘woman of many hats’ as CEO of ABA Enterprises


She riseth also while it is yet night, and giveth meat to her household, and a portion to her maidens; She considereth a field, and buyeth it: with the fruit of her hands she planteth a vineyard;  She girdeth her loins with strength, and strengtheneth her arms; She perceiveth that her merchandise is good: her candle goeth not out by night; She layeth her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff; She stretcheth out her hand to the poor; yea, she reacheth forth her hands to the needy. (Proverbs 31: 15-20 KJV) 


For the record, Alisha B. Allen could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…
On second thought, perhaps she could tell it best.
“Multi-business owner,” Allen told Making Headline News this week.

THE LORD’S DOING

DESTINY STEPS — Armed with a Master’s Degree in Business Administration from Purdue University, North Carolina entrepreneur Alisha Allen oversee an assortment of business ventures, as Founder and CEO of ABA Enterprises.

In essence, Allen assumes the role as an inspirational speaker through this endeavor.

WHO IS ALISHA ALLEN?

A graduate of Monroe (North Carolina) High School, who’s currently enrolled in Apex School of Theology, where she’s pursuing Master of Divinity, Allen acknowledged that it is due in large part to her life’s competitive drive that has greatly empowered her to gain the essential insight needed to make her dreams a reality.

“I learned to make the woman I was yesterday my biggest competition and I always put a 150 percent effort toward defeating and beating her each and every day,” Allen said. “(What I love most about my businesses is) the freedom to allow God to be CEO and understanding He only entrust the manifestation of what people see into my care. God trust me to run His business ethically, with integrity, and with a spirit of excellence.”

A business-related repertoire that spans more than two decades, Allen will be afforded the golden opportunity to promote her brands during public appearances in in nearby Charlotte April 13 and May 4.

Interestingly, she’s a licensed minister, a certified credit consultant, a certified notary public instructor, and is an ambassador in Monroe and the surrounding areas as a community activist, whereby she facilitates fundraising.

Well said by a woman, who could be what one would appropriately describe as a serial entrepreneur.

Or perhaps a businesswoman of many hats.

Or perhaps…

On second thought, she’s already said it best.

Letitia Scott Jackson’s DFW-based Keeping Families Connected nonprofit organization becoming a national fixture


“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for Me.” (Matthew 25:40 NIV) 


DALLAS — Letitia Scott Jackson took to the airwaves over the weekend for all the right reasons.

Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound, spirited words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

ALL IN THE FAMILY 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — A Dallas/Fort Worth-based non-profit organization that Leititia Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.
Said Scott Jackson in a rather forthright suggestion. “If you woke up this morning and didn’t thank God for waking you up, you are out of order.”
To grasp a thorough concept of why the opportunistic Scott Jackson deems it essential to embrace virtually every opportunity that’s afforded to her, look no further than how God has gone about moving on her behalf during a time when it seemed countless of others had written her off.

Wrongfully convicted only to wound up emerging victorious during her case that unfolded in the Texas Fifth Circuit Courts, Scott Jackson had become greatly inspired to establish Keeping Families Connected.

A DFW-based nonprofit organization that Scott Jackson erected approximately four years ago, the strategic mission of Keeping Families Connected is centered in large part on enriching the lives of young people, most notably through events, as well as by way of providing educational resources, mentoring, and counseling services.

“We believe that family matters most,” said a spokesperson for this thriving, flourishing nonprofit organization in a detailed overview at https://www.keepingfamilyconnected.org/.

A native of Houston who was raised in Shreveport, Louisiana, Scott Jackson is thoroughly convinced that her organization is steadily becoming a fixture throughout the region but, most importantly, she’s convinced it aligns solely with the purpose for which she was created.

DOING IT BIG IN TEXAS — Appearing on Dallas/Fort Worth’s 97.9 The Beat over the weekend, Scott Jackson wasted little time offering some rather profound words of encouragement to the station’s thousands of listeners across the Metroplex.

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

In order to better aid and promote her organization — particularly on national platforms — Scott Jackson has announced that she and her staff  will be launching a Keeping Families mobile app, which is scheduled to go into effect as early as June 1, 2019 during its Third Annual Creations of Fashion For A Cause Runway Show.

This yearly event, Scott Jackson said, is designed for children from various walks of life, particularly teens and young adults from Keeping Families Connected, during which they will participate in modeling, as well as meet and interact with professional models.

For Scott Jackson, the startup of her organization comes amid arguably the darkest chapter of her life.

“I couldn’t see my kids, because they were left with caregivers, who couldn’t afford to bring them to see them,” said Scott Jackson, recalling the tumultuous developments that fueled her desire to establish her nonprofit. “My daughters were in Louisiana and I was in Texas.”

Still, after the dust had ultimately settled and Scott Jackson had emerged victorious by winning her case, it wasn’t long thereafter that God had emphatically showed her why He had entrusted her to endure, yet conquer so much heartache and pain, both of which she emphatically outlasted.

Look at her today, walking fervently in her purpose as an accomplished businesswoman, who’s also widely known as a published author, public speaker, musician, and humanitarian.

To her credit, she birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

MAKING MUCH NOISE — Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, Scott Jackson emphasized.

“Ever since (she was wrongfully convicted), she wants to spread the hope of redemption and connection one interaction, a letter to an inmate, and one prison visit at a time,” said a spokesperson for Scoot Jackson’s organization. “She also has a passion for speaking to youth and young adults about making the best choices now based on her own past experiences. She has been blessed to build several businesses and mentor students and members of her church to define their own success.”

“My mission is for Keeping Families Connected to become a household name worldwide and eventually be able to provide free prison transportation in other states as the need is so great,” Scott Jackson told Making Headline News this week.

Interestingly and to her credit, Scott Jackson’s Keeping Families Connected is, by all accounts, an effective institution, considering it’s also committed to rebuilding families and fostering life skills in youth and young adults from broken homes, she emphasized.

“For four years, we have been providing free breakfast, lunch, and transportation to prison facilities throughout the state of Texas for (people), especially kids that have incarcerated parents and individuals that have incarcerated loved ones,” Scott Jackson said.

Talk about being in total alignment with the purpose for which she was created.


COMING FULL CIRCLE 

SEASON OF THE REBIRTH — To her credit, Scott Jackson birthed Keeping Families Connected out of “a personal desire,” one that would enable her to customarily make meaningful contributions to the lives of those who are incarcerated while being separated an extended period time from family members.

“My life’s trials and tribulations set me up for this journey,” Scott said. “I lost my mom, my dad, and my only son to death, and I really feel that God was removing all of my leaning posts so that I could find my connection and my calling in life and, more so, to help me maximize my potential.”

To her credit, she’s doing just that.

And, what’s remarkably astounding is that she’s nowhere out of order.

Not by a long shot.

Boston preacher Bishop Ronald S. Hobson, Sr. advancing the kingdom mightily as leader of The Reconstruction Church


Let the elders that rule well be counted worthy of double honour, especially they who labour in the word and doctrine. (1 Timothy 5:17 KJV)


DALLAS — Just a few days ago, Dr. Ronald S Hobson, Sr. found himself reminiscing, among other things, about how his family had gone about making peace with Jesus Christ.

Without question, it was arguably the best discovery of his young life.

As Dr. Hobson — a Boston-area pastor who’s widely known as Bishop Hobson — explained, it all unfolded sometime after the tragic death of grandmother, during which his family consequently attended the historic Jefferson Temple Church of God In Christ in nearby North Bellport, New York.
Ironically, Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

ON GOD’S BATTLEFIELD 

GOD’S MIGHTY SPOKESPERSON — A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Ronald S. Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

“It was after she accepted Christ that our journey as a family into the Christian faith began,” Bishop Hobson told Making Headline News this week.

For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher, whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people.

God’s people, to be more direct.

A ministerial calling that spans approximately three decades, Bishop Hobson is the Senior Pastor at The Reconstruction Church.

MORE ON TRC: https://thereconstructionchurch.org/

Located at 80 Pleasant Street in Brockton, Massachusetts, The Reconstruction Church has adopted a notable commitment that is centered largely on serving its community through various programs, many of which are geared toward people’s spiritual needs.

“We are not hear to judge, but to help you change the way you think about your faith,” said a spokesperson for The Reconstruction Church in a detailed introduction of this flourishing ministry at https://thereconstructionchurch.org/.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census — it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

He’s also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

Having always looked up to and admired his pastor, Bishop Ralph L. Jefferson — “I still admire him today,” he often says — it was due in large part to his spiritual father’s unorthodox style of preaching, coupled with what Bishop Hobson describes as his “tenacity in preaching The Word” that greatly fueled his desire to want to follow in his footsteps.

PROMOTED BY GOD — Dr. Hobson was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is especially appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best way she knew how, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its share of challenges.

“Like any other inner-city, I was introduced to many vises and avenues that were not ideal and economically friendly,” Bishop Hobson recalls. “I had to do what I had to do to survive.”

Regardless, amongst the notable factors with which this young preacher had come to grips was that only what he does for Christ will last. So realistically, there was no running from the calling and purpose for which he was created.

MOM KNOWS BEST — For Bishop Hobson, witnessing his mother surrender to God proved to be defining moment, of sorts, for an accomplished preacher whose keen reputation is such that he customarily exemplifies having a heart for people. God’s people, to be more direct.

“The amazing part of everything was that the church became my outlet and focus,” Bishop Hobson explained. “The more I attended, the more comfortable I grew to accept this Jesus my pastor so eloquently shared through his preaching and teachings. The church became my focal point for change. My pastor took the time to teach me all he could for me to become someone or something in life. He poured into me daily values and practices of clean, godly living. He wanted to ensure that I made godly decisions in life.”

All of which practically sums up why this young preacher from a rural town on Long Island has been set aside for God’s use, all the while steadily having a massive impact in advancing the kingdom for such a time as now.

Never mind that according to Bishop Hobson, the awe-inspiring events that had ultimately given way to his divine call to ministry weren’t merely easy, he often recalls.

A native of North Bellport, New York — a rural town of roughly 11,545 residents, according to the latest U.S. census, it’s safe to assume that Bishop Hobson, 48, undoubtedly was birthed into ministry.

“It was life-changing,” he typically says without hesitation.

Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

He’s been preaching ever since.

Bishop Hobson also is a thriving businessman as a credible credit repair specialist.

“Remembering the day when my pastor laid his hands on me, he shared with me a dream I had the night before,” Bishop Hobson recalled. “The Lord knew what He showed me in my dream, but my pastor’s prophetic discernment by The Spirit of God was led to share the dream. He said, ‘Son, God has called you to preach.’ After that, I hit the floor – slain in The Spirit.”

He’s been slain in The Spirit ever since.

He hasn’t looked back ever since.

Credit the fact that He’s been sold out to God ever since.

In no particularly order.

IT’S ALL GOOD — Despite the notion that being raised with eight brothers and sisters were both “amazing and discouraging” at times, Bishop Hobson is appreciative of the fact this his mother had raised her children to the best of her capabilities, though he acknowledged that growing up in what he deems “an improvised community” had its challenges. Pictured with Bishop Hobson are his sons, Ron, Jr. and Christopher.

Having become a licensed minister the same year he delivered his first sermon, Bishop Hobson was ordained and installed as a Pastor in October 2002 by Bishop Ralph L. Harmon, Milford, DE.

 

Bishop Hobson’s mother, Geraldine Scott, had accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior, thus setting off what apparently was a spiritual domino effect throughout the Hobson household.

Consequently, he was consecrated in December 2003 to the Office of Bishopric through the laying on of hands of His Eminence W. O. Kinnings in nearby Philadelphia before being reaffirmed and dually consecrated to the Office of Bishopric and Presiding Prelate of Preachers United Fellowship in August 2006 by the Episcopal Board of Bishops of Alpha & Omega Ministries, Bishop Lee A. Davis (California).

Having studied at Empire State College in Buffalo, New York, Bishop Hobson enrolled at the University of Phoenix, during which his concentration was Business Administration.  Having matriculated from Encouraging Faith Theological University with honors, Bishop Hobson is an accomplished author who wrote “Who’s Your Moses?”

KEEP ON KEEPIN’ ON — Having officially accepted his calling to preach to gospel at the tender age of 18, this then-teenage preacher found himself standing behind a sacred desk, giving his first sermon in October 1988.

“Accepting what God allowed was my new momentum and vision focus,” Bishop Hobson said of his well-publicized ministerial career. “I felt secure in knowing Chrissy was in the safest arms. I knew I had to continue to preach the Good News. I’ve learned that through the course of healing that I have to love and not hate…press to impress Christ and live the best life I could for Him, because tomorrow is not promised to anyone, not even me.”

All things considered, that, without question, was arguably the best discovering of his young life.

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.
