Sylinda Mumphery’s spiritual reputation is such that she has a heart for embracing women who have emerged as feel good stories.

Men, too.

Such will be the case when Mumphery host the third annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony on March 16 in Smyrna, Georgia.

CHANGING A GENERATION 

HEART FOR GOD’S PEOPLE — Atlanta-area businesswoman Sylinda Mumphery’s spiritual reputation is such that she has a heart for embracing women who have emerged as feel good stories. Such will be the case when Mumphery host the third annual RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony on March 16 in Smyrna, Georgia.

Powered by Women’s History Month, the RTB (or Removing The Bandages) Winning Women Awards Ceremony will take place at the Smyrna Community Center, located at 200 Village Green Circle SE.

“The purpose of this event is to honor and celebrate women who are overcomers and survivors of domestic violence, rape, cancer, burn victims, drug and alcohol abuse, homelessness and so much more,” Mumphery told Making Headline News this week. “We also celebrate and honor women who are making a difference in the lives of others by giving back to their communities or serving our country.”

In addition, Mumphery said this event is essential, in large part because women customarily carry what she describes as “a lot of pain and sometimes carry our wounds in our wombs.”

“There are many that want to give up and throw in the towel,” Mumphery said. “Therefore, we take this night to uplift each woman and let our sisters know that we love them and that no matter what has happened, we are not what happened to us.  We are beautiful, powerful, and have a purpose in life.”

The owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC, Mumphery’s RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony is a three-day event that will commence with a with an opening-day meet-and-greet on Friday, March 15.

The actual event will begin the next day and will culminate on Sunday with attendees engaging in morning worship and brunch.

Tickets can be purchased at http://www.sylindad.com/.

“It’s a full weekend of sisterhood, empowerment, love and excitement,” Mumphery said.

The owner and CEO of SylindaD, LLC, Mumphery’s RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony is a three-day event that will commence with a with an opening-day meet-and-greet on Friday, March 15.

Interestingly, for the time since the inception of Mumphery’s awards ceremony, there will be a segment that will be centered on honoring men, most notably three recipients who will become beneficiaries of the Mighty Man of Valor Awards.


“Our purpose for honoring men this year is that we’ve had a lot of men that have begun to follow the movement. We realize that men wear bandages as well, but carry their wounds differently. Many have survived through battles that should have killed them, but they came out alive and are also making a difference and giving back. They also deserve to be honored and celebrated for not giving up and standing tall for their family, friends, and community.” — Sylinda Mumphery


Having described the feedback as “incredible” since the inception of her event, Mumphery emphasized the RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony essentially is a platform, of sorts, for those being honored to tell their stories and testimonies of how God spared their lives and how they’ve had to overcome a slew of obstacles in order to continue standing strong, she said.

HATS OFF TO YOU BROTHAS — Interestingly, for the time since the inception of Mumphery’s awards ceremony, there will be a segment that will be centered on honoring men, most notably three recipients who will become beneficiaries of the Mighty Man of Valor Awards.

“For some, it’s their first time ever being honored or telling their story,” said Mumphery, who’s also an accomplished author, mentor, speaker, and an Atlanta-area radio talk show host. “So often we experience life’s interruptions and become blindsided, because we never expected certain situations, incidents, or tragedies to affect us directly.

Much to her delight, Mumphery’s assortment of hardships and personal tragedies throughout the years have never caused her waver. If nothing else, such unfavorable circumstances only fueled her desire to press and navigate toward her destiny, most notably through a movement that had become a fixture throughout the Body of Christ.


GOD’S LEADING LADY 

LETTING HER LIGHT SHINE — Having described the feedback as “incredible” since the inception of her event, Mumphery emphasized the RTB Winning Women Awards Ceremony essentially is a platform, of sorts, for those being honored to tell their stories and testimonies of how God spared their lives and how they’ve had to overcome a slew of obstacles in order to continue standing strong, she said.

“(The) Removing The Bandages Movement was birthed out of brokenness,” Mumphery said. “I never knew that God could take broken pieces and create beautiful art.  After having two breast cancer scares and almost losing my left breast, I was hurt and ashamed of my wound.  I thought that if I wore bandages daily, that I would not notice the scars.  Even after losing everything and facing divorce, I thought that makeup, expensive jewelry, expensive car, shoes and clothes would cover the pain.

“As women, we look for love in all the wrong places and sometimes cause self-inflicted wounds to ourselves,” Mumphery continued. “This movement moves inside of me wherever I go, because every time I come in contact with a woman — no matter her race, socioeconomic status, background, size or shape — I want her to know that she does not have to live her life behind her bandages and that once she rips them off of her and embrace her scars, she will eventually find out that they are now her beauty mark, because God will give you beauty for ashes.”

Arkansas author Urica Ray conquers her ‘valley and dry place’ experiences, writes a life-changing book


But the God of all grace, who hath called us unto his eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, make you perfect, stablish, strengthen, settle you. (1 Peter 5:10 KJV)


DALLAS — Urica Ray fielded the question as if she expected it.

“I’m glad you asked,” Ray, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling when God had given her the vision to assemble her new book. “I actually started writing the book on March 7, 2015.”

After having spent the next three years or so brainstorming, Ray officially began composing “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain” in November 2018.

A RAY OF BLESSINGS 

WELCOME TO YOUR NEW SEASON — Even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Mid-South author Urica Ray her strategic assignment through her book entitled, “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

By month’s end, her awe-inspiring masterpiece was all but complete and, much to her delight, it has been nothing short of remarkable.

As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season, one she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

“And I couldn’t understand that dry place but it had to happen,” Ray said without hesitation. “At this particular time, I felt like a baby in an incubator, fighting for my life. You know, a baby in an incubator is waiting on the physician to come and see about him or her, and that’s how I felt. I felt like I was in an incubator, waiting on God, waiting to see, hear, and waiting on a touch from Him.”

STANDING OVATION — Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part, Ray said.

As Ray had ultimately discovered, it was time in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator that proved to be a defining moment, of sorts, particularly as it pertains to this Jonesboro, Arkansas-area author stepping out on faith even when it seemed her faith was bleak.

In fact, even while trying to reinvent herself and rediscover her God-given worth during her time in the wilderness, God began to reveal to Ray her strategic assignment through “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain.”

Because after all, amongst the notable factors she’s grasped is that all things work together for the good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose.

In a nutshell, it’s safe to assume that God had a divine purpose for this devout woman of faith even while being confined to that spiritual incubator.


“The message I want the people to know and see is that God’s hand is not too small. Sometimes, the valley place is our blessed place. We have to go through the valley in order to get to the promise.” — Author Urica Ray 


BUT GOD — As Ray explained, the prelude to writing her book arose amid her turbulent season she describes as a “valley,” or as she puts it more plainly, her time in what she deems refers to as the “dry place.”

Since the release of “Unveiling The Mask: After The Pain,” the feedback, as expected, has been favorable for the most part.

“The feedback (has been) amazing from the readers, and some were emotional just to see the lives of people gaining strength, hope, and faith,” said Ray, adding that a second book undoubtedly is forthcoming, although a specific timeframe has yet to be determine.

A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

WOMAN OF MANY HATS — A graduate of Jonesboro’s Life Coach School of Arkansas (or LCSA), Ray is certified life coach, author, the wife of a military veteran, as well as a devoted mother and grandmother.

As for her itinerary, Ray announced that she has a few life-coaching events scheduled for some time in April. Also, will appear on Jonesboro’s KLEK 102.5 F.M. in the coming months, during which she and other LCSA authors will discuss a variety of stories and other topics.

Given all through which she’s overcome, Ray doesn’t shy away from the notion that God has strategically set her aside for His use.


THUS SAID THE LORD…

“The purpose God created (me) is in His word in Jeremiah 1:5 that says: “Before I formed you, I knew you; before you were born I set you apart,’” Ray said. “And that part of the scripture says enough, letting me know that His plans are not like man, so therefore, my book was not created for me, but for someone who will cross the same path as I.”

What a difference a season in that figurative — or spiritual — incubator has made.

Dallas/Forth Worth entrepreneur Christale Thompson carrying out her vision as a resourceful event designer


And the LORD answered me, and said, Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables, so he may run that reads it. (Habakkuk 2:2 KJV)


DALLAS — Some time ago, God gave Christale Thompson a life-changing vision.

Eight years ago to be technical.

According to scripture, “eight,” by all accounts, signifies a “new beginning.”


GOD-INSPIRED VISION 

DESTINY STEPS UNFOLDING — Christale Thompson has made some pretty immeasurable strides as the owner and CEO of Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist, her Dallas-Fort Worth-area venture that is centered on ensuring that each of clients are stress free and, as she appropriately acknowledged, comes away, “knowing that their dreams have come to life.”

For Thompson, her much-anticipated and well-deserved “new beginning” has benefited her mightily, particularly as a flourishing entrepreneur.

“I have been decorating homes and events for eight years now,” Thompson, 36, told Making Headline News this week.


STYLIN’ AND PROFILIN’ 

And, to her distinctly unique credit, coupled with the purpose for which God has created her, Thompson has made some pretty immeasurable strides as the owner and CEO of Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist, her Dallas-Fort Worth-area venture that is centered on ensuring that each of clients are stress free and, as she appropriately acknowledged, comes away, “knowing that their dreams have come to life.”


THING OF BEAUTY 

MASSIVE SUPPORT — A progressive business that caters to people and groups of all ages, Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist had come full circle, in part because of Thompson’s solid support system that’s comprised of a gallery of loved one, close friends, and acquaintances.

A native of Eudora, Arkansas, a Southern Chicot County town that is comprised of roughly 2,269 residents according to latest U. S. census, Thompson’s Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist has given way to this resourceful businesswoman emerging as one of the finest and most efficient event designers in the DFW Metroplex.


PURE ELEGANCE 

ONE WOW MOMENT — A native of Eudora, Arkansas, a Southern Chicot County town that is comprised of roughly 2,269 residents according to latest U. S. census, Thompson’s Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist has given way to this resourceful businesswoman emerging as one of the finest and most efficient event designers in the DFW Metroplex.

As Thompson — who’s widely known as Jeanelle Chris — explained, her steadfast commitment to exceeding her customers’ expectations has given way of sustained success for a business she hopes generates more of a national presence, much sooner than later.


“I love to meet and interact with people. I love to see the reaction on their faces when they see their dreams come to life. It keeps me going.” — Dallas/Fort Worth Entrepreneur Christale Thompson


A progressive business that caters to people and groups of all ages, Jeanelle Decor And Event Stylist had come full circle, in part because of Thompson’s solid support system that’s comprised of a gallery of loved one, close friends, and acquaintances.

“I want to thank Janice Thompson, Kim Dalcour, Shirkari Campbell, First Lady Melonye Batson, and my daughters for believing in me when I was too shy to believe in myself,” said Thompson, who will be hosting her inaugural “God’s Vision” board party in March at a date to be announced.

Now that she’s a little more than eight years in on an event designing business that undoubtedly is aligned with her God-mandated purpose, this young entrepreneur is especially appreciative of the fact that her vision is steadily coming full circle.

Just as God had planned all along.

“It’s important that I inspire others daily by being humble and respectful,” said Thompson, a graduate of Eudora High School and a former student at the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff (or UAPB). “(It’s important to) let them know that this little black girl from Arkansas rock and will not stop at nothing.”

Now that she’s diligently working her vision through the ever-so-competitive entrepreneurship industry, Thompson doesn’t shy away from the notion that it is her civic duty to reach back and inspire others to follow suit, thus maximize their potential through their gifts.

Just as she’s doing — with God, her Helper, steering the way.

“Follow your dreams and step out on faith,” said Thompson, offering some worthy advice to aspiring entrepreneurs. God got me the rest of the way.”

Indeed He does.

Eight years and counting.

Wright’s Organic Detox Water creating a massive, continuous buzz around Dallas/Fort Worth

DALLAS — Is Tyresha Wright the detox water industry’s best kept secret?

Given the constant buzz Wright has created — courtesy of her organic detox water products — throughout Dallas/Fort Worth’s massive Metroplex, it’s safe to assume the sky’s undoubtedly is the limit for this thriving, progressive entrepreneur, who is the owner of Wright’s Organic Detox Water.


A DETOX GAME CHANGER 

HER PRODUCTS ARE LIT — Given the constant buzz Tyresha Wright has created — courtesy of her organic detox water products — throughout Dallas/Fort Worth’s massive Metroplex, it’s safe to assume the sky’s undoubtedly is the limit for this thriving, progressive entrepreneur, who is the owner of Wright’s Organic Detox Water.

A business that has enjoyed a considerable amount of growth since its inception a little more than a year ago, Wright’s Organic Detox Water has become a fixture, in large part because of its naturally infused flavored water with organic fruits, vegetables, and herbs, all of which assist to purify, replenish, and hydrate organs in the body.

Interestingly, as Wright — who’s widely known as “Ty” — told Making Headline News this week, her organic detox water is especially resourceful, considering her products help rid the body of harmful toxins, which increases the overall nutritional and health benefits, all the while consumers enjoy refreshing, infused H20, she said.

A Provider Relations Analyst for a local  healthcare company, Wright, 39, said her fervent desire to delve off into entrepreneurship surfaced largely because of her single parent household status.


“Being a single mother of three, I endured many of financial hardships when it came to providing for my children. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur of a successful business that would bring financial stability for my family. In addition, I’ve always had a passion to help others and Wright’s Organic Detox Water has paved the way so I could do just that.” — Dallas Entrepreneur Ty Wright 


CONNECT WITH TY WRIGHT: https://www.facebook.com/WrightsOrganicDetoxWater/

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Amongst the reasons Wright has developed a passion for convincing consumers to buy into organic detox water is that our body is constantly working to dispel toxins and unwanted matter from its various systems, according to a report on the importance of detoxifying the body at https://www.foodmatters.com.

Much to her delight, Wright’s passion for helping others achieve their strategic health and wellness goals and objectives has not only given way to some much-needed financial stability but, to her credit, her delectable products have created a huge buzz in the state where residents have become accustomed to doing things big.

“I’m able to help others who have or had the same struggles I had when it came to consuming water,” said Wright, adding in a jokingly way that for years, she didn’t particularly like drinking water. “Knowing that I’m able to help others with their overall health is a blessing.”

Since the startup of Wright’s Organic Detox Water, the general consensus amongst consumers is that, well, perhaps Wright is steadily making a strong case that she’s the detox water industry’s best kept secret.

“The feedback I’ve received since I started my business has been nothing but positive, encouraging, thankfulness, and continued support,” Wright said. “It truly has been a blessing for me and a blessing to others.”


DID YOU KNOW…

And, if things hold up for this solid, innovative businesswoman whose best entrepreneurship days seem well ahead of her then, in all likelihood, her strategic goals and ambitions for 2019 and beyond will surely come full circle.

That is, Wright is working diligently on ensuring that her booming business attracts more of a national presence.

SIGN OF THINGS TO COME — Since the startup of Wright’s Organic Detox Water, the general consensus amongst consumers is that, well, perhaps Wright is steadily making a strong case that she’s the detox water industry’s best kept secret.

“I pray in 2019, I will be able to accommodate all 50 states,” Wright said without hesitation. “My mission is to help others with water consumption, who struggle daily. Water is something we need every day. When refuse to consume it, our health will eventually spiral downwards, leading to unbearable health issues that we all want to prevent. I know I do.”

Amongst the reasons Wright has developed a passion for convincing consumers to buy into organic detox water is that our body is constantly working to dispel toxins and unwanted matter from its various systems, according to a report on the importance of detoxifying the body at https://www.foodmatters.com.

LOOK OUT WORLD — If things hold up for this solid, innovative businesswoman whose best entrepreneurship days seem well ahead of her then, in all likelihood, her strategic goals and ambitions for 2019 and beyond will surely come full circle. That is, Wright is working diligently on ensuring that her booming business attracts more of a national presence.

“Over time, the body gets run down from unhealthy food choices, alcohol, caffeine, drugs, stress, and environmental toxins that are a part of modern day life. No matter how healthy your diet or lifestyle may be, external factors still require us to give the body a chance to recharge and dispel anything that may be holding us back from experiencing superior health and long lasting vitality.

“When our vital organs are placed under too much pressure and unable to work efficiently, this is when illness and disease can appear,” according to the https://www.foodmatters.com report. “Taking time to cleanse the body and nurture these vital organs goes a long way in prevention, and also has immediate effects — greater energy, clearer skin, better digestion, mental clarity, and so much more.”

THE TABLE IS SPREAD — Much to her delight, Wright’s passion for helping other achieve their strategic health and wellness goals and objectives has not only given way to some much-needed financial stability but, to her credit, her delectable products have created a huge buzz in the state where its residents have become accustomed to doing things big.

For what it’s worth, these are just a few notable factors Wright will likely address in the coming days when she host a presentation with a division of the Dallas Independent School District (or DISD), during which she will share pertinent information about her organic detox water products.

“I love seeing the success of others, and I’m a firm believer of if you set your mind on something, the heart will soon follow,” Wright said. “Pray about it and allow God to make a way.”

For this devoted single mother of three, amongst the things of which she’s grateful is that God has surely moved on her behalf, particularly since the inception of her business.

“Nothing comes easy,” said Wright, “but if you want something (badly enough), then it’s up to you to go get it. Never allow others to say what is impossible, because with faith and God, any and all things are possible.”

Appropriately and well stated by this thriving Texas businesswoman, one who’s steadily making a strong case that she’s the detox water industry’s best kept secret.

Breast Cancer Survivor Establishes Global Presence Offering Transformational Health and Wealth Services


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS NEW YEAR 2019 SPECIAL REPORT


What better way to kick off the New Year than by establishing a plan to upgrade your health and financial status?

That’s what breast cancer survivor and Detroit-area businesswoman Nicole Pettiway has become most noted for doing — strategically helping busy professional men and women achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals.

“I believe all women and men deserve to have vibrant health and financial freedom,” Pettiway told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

CHANGING A GENERATION 

MAJOR MILESTONE — Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of more than two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers professional men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

Detroit native and breast cancer survivor, Nicole Pettiway, 49, used her mentoring experience of over two decades and four years of coaching experience to launch The Health and Wealth Company, LLC — a progressive business venture that offers men and women transformational health and financial services so they can experience lasting lifestyle changes.

The Health and Wealth Company is geared towards empowering men and women with the skills and support to achieve vibrant health as well as tools to make wise economic decisions through private or group coaching programs and workshops. These online or local programs use two strategic frameworks: 7 Keys to Vibrant Health and 6 Keys to 6+ Figures, with the mission to empower “health-conscious and financially focused men and women” to take control of their health and finances in order to achieve and sustain their health and wealth goals. Pettiway tailors her programs to fit the health or financial goals of her clients.

Pettiway’s journey to pursuing a business venture in the health and financial industries stemmed from overcoming adversities in her own journey.

“The blueprints I share with my clients are the same blueprints that I used on my own journey with overcoming breast cancer and getting on the road to financial freedom,” said Pettiway. “…by providing transformational health and wealth coaching programs that use the blueprints for vibrant health and financial freedom.”

Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.


APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER

“I was raised to be the best at my craft and to be self-sufficient,” Pettiway said. “With those traits and my upbringing, I had no choice but to succeed.”

Pettiway’s fervent quest to raise the bar as a thriving businesswoman undoubtedly has benefited her greatly since first setting foot into the world of entrepreneurship.

“I have never been afraid to go against the norm when I believe in something wholeheartedly. I am certain this is why God started preparing me in 2016 for what has become my next assignment. Until 2016, I was on a forward trajectory to becoming a C-Level Executive in Corporate America with a stellar career, awards, and accolades behind me,” said Pettiway.


Pettiway ultimately discovered God’s altered plans to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

POISED FOR A TURNAROUND — Pettiway’s global recognition as a Health and Wealth Coach, was said to be in large part due to her natural ambition, drive, leadership skills, and desire to serve others, which combined has fueled her desire to serve through a venture that is attracting a global presence.

“In 2016, I was introduced to personal finance in-depth, both as a consumer and an entrepreneur,” said Pettiway, recalling the time she joined myEcon, the Personal Financial Success Company.

“My position as an independent contractor with myEcon gave me my first exposure to entrepreneurship and I fell in love (with it).”

“I was personally mentored by multi-millionaires and personal finance experts,” Pettiway said.  “Being able to vastly improve my finances and help other families do the same became my new passion and pursuit.”

ON CENTER STAGE — For what it’s worth, even when adversity surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing her a way of escape.

“It was at this time when my career goals shifted from working in Corporate America and helping businesses thrive to helping improve the lives of families across America using what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy’,” said Pettiway.

For what it’s worth, even when adversity had surfaced, even when it seemed that Pettiway’s life — as precious and fragile as it is — had endured a horrific, tear-jerking roadblock, there was God, working behind the scenes providing for her a way of escape.

“God wasn’t finished with me yet,” said Pettiway, recalling the challenges of 2017, during which she was diagnosed with breast cancer. “This became the biggest battle of my life. Through divine intervention, I was exposed to alternative and holistic medicine, and I made the decision to forego chemotherapy and radiation and use my body’s natural ability to heal.”

“This required substantial changes in my lifestyle – a total mind, body, and spirit makeover,” Pettiway continued. “I believe God knew that I would be up for the challenge, so I forged ahead and made massive changes in my life. I had surgery to remove the tumor, and I am blessed to proclaim as of August 2018 that I have no signs of cancer in my body.” Losing 82 pounds and getting back to her high school size was an added bonus of Pettiway’s breast cancer journey.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Today Pettiway is basking in the glory of her entrepreneurial element with God, her Helper, leading the way. Nicole’s flourishing business and inspiring healing journey is fully supported by her loving husband Hermen, and their two adult children Kevin and Kirsten.

Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix early in her career, Pettiway took the leap later in her career to become a Certified Functional Health Coach through the Institute for Functional Health Coaches.

GOD’S PLAN — As Pettiway discovered, God altered her career-related plans only to strategically reassign her to the world of entrepreneurship — which, as she found out, wasn’t a bad path after all.

As a long-time Portfolio Manager, she is also a certified Project Management Professional (or PMP) through the Project Management Institute and serves as a mentor for the We Build Character Leadership Program and for Detroit Cornerstone Schools.

“On my healing journey, I immersed myself in holistic medicine by reading books, articles, and journals, attending conferences, meeting with experts in the industry, and joining a number of holistic healing support groups,” said Pettiway, whose business venture accommodates health-conscious men and women.

“I started blogging about my journey to raise awareness that our bodies are magnificently designed and that we are capable of overcoming chronic illnesses through natural means.”


DESTINY STEPS 

APPLIED KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Business Administration from the University of Phoenix early in her career, Pettiway took the leap later in her career to become a Certified Functional Health Coach through the Institute for Functional Health Coaches. She is also a certified Project Management Professional (or PMP) through the Project Management Institute and serves as a mentor for the We Build Character Leadership Program and for Detroit Cornerstone Schools.

“God revealed my next assignment, which was to become the person I needed on my healing journey – a health coach,” Pettiway said. “I have a passion for both health and wellness and personal finance.”

It wasn’t long thereafter that The Health and Wealth Company was born.

And the rest, as they say, was history.

Pettiway expresses her passion for helping others. “I love witnessing the transformation of my clients as they shift their mindset, unlearn the things that were hindering them, and propel forward on the road to vibrant health and financial freedom.”

“As a breast cancer survivor, I believe that people can overcome chronic illness and attain optimal health by learning the root causes and applying holistic and integrative solutions. As a person who was once drowning in debt and in bankruptcy, I believe that people can attain financial freedom by learning and applying what I call ‘the secrets of the wealthy.’”

Houston businesswoman Dr. Tracy Allen entering her 26th year as an accomplished income tax preparer

DALLAS — The annual tax peak season is officially underway.

And once again, Houston businesswoman Dr. Tracy Allen is greatly prepared to assist taxpayers to achieve their goals and objectives, particularly with regards to fielding sizable federal tax refunds.

A native of Alexandria, Louisiana, Allen’s professional experience in the ever-so-competitive tax industry spans nearly three decades.


SETTING TRENDS

DESTINY STEPS — The owner and CEO of TA Tax & Accounting, Dr. Tracy Allen’s rise as one of Houston’s finest tax preparers began sometime in 1992, during which she initially commenced to preparing taxes as a hobby.

The owner and CEO of TA Tax & Accounting, Allen’s rise as one of Houston’s finest tax preparers began sometime in 1992, during which she initially commenced to preparing taxes as a hobby.

However, as she began to field constant requests and inquiries from individuals about preparing their taxes, it wasn’t long thereafter that she deemed it essential to establish a business venture.

Here is she today, steadfastly fulfilling and carrying out her vision with God, her Helper, leading the way.


“(I love) helping people get the most money for less and helping others become free of IRS debt from back taxes and audits,” Allen told Making Headline News during a recent interview.


All things considered, there’s even one intriguing goal Allen acknowledged she’d like to accomplish much sooner than later.

“(I’d like to) become financially free and retire early,” said Allen, a longtime Certified Public Accountant and psychologist.

 

A business venture that accommodates people ranging in ages 18-and-up, Allen’s TA & TA Tax & Accounting customarily services tax payers nationwide.

“(I assist) everyone, ages 18 to 100,” Allen said. “If you work, are paid in taxes, or own a business — big or small — or corporations (I can help you).”

For what it’s worth, Allen’s passion for establishing her own tax preparation business was spearheaded in large part from the continuous backing and valiant support of her family.

Even after the death of her husband a little more than two decades ago, Allen sensed that as a single parent, it is absolutely essential that she go to great lengths to birth her vision as a rising entrepreneur.

Yep. Here is she, still fulfilling and carrying out her vision with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“My children have always been my inspiration,” Allen said. “I was 27 when I lost their father and my husband and I had to provide for them as a single mother, and I had to do everything I could to make sure they had the best of everything.”

Today, unlike never before, Allen’s TA & TA Tax & Accounting is such that it is committed to helping ensure that its clients’ achieve the maximum satisfaction through its services.

KEEP ON PRESSING — Even after the death of her husband a little more than two decades ago, Allen sensed that as a single parent, it is absolutely essential that she go to great lengths to birth her vision as a rising entrepreneur.

“I live to help others in all walks of life,” said Allen, who is scheduled to participate in the Heart 4 The Homeless Fashion Show in March. “I do not walk my living to be in vain.”

Amongst the reasons she has become destined to esteeming others highly than herself is that she journeys through life — as precious and fragile as it — exemplifying the golden rule.

“I live by treat others as you wish to be treated,” Allen said. “Helping others to succeed has always been my passion.”

Houston’s Kateri McKnight savoring the best of both worlds as an entrepreneur, accomplished author


MAKING HEADLINE NEWS WELCOMES KATERI T. MCKNIGHT


DALLAS — Kateri McKnight isn’t just an accomplished businesswoman.

She’s one who has become thoroughly committed to ensuring that she continues to function diligently in her element.

Not only that, McKnight has deemed it essential to go to great lengths to reach back and help like-minded individuals to follow suit.


RAISING THE BAR 

WOMAN OF DISTINCT POWER — Houston businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight assumes the role as CEO of Velocity Changers, a globally-acclaimed company that is centered largely on offering it clients innovative ways to get their stories from out their spirits onto paper or, as McKnight jokingly says, on to “kindle.”

“My personal mission is to empower and inspire those to open their hearts in order to open their minds to reach out to others with their writing skills,” McKnight told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

The mission which McKnight is alluding is that about which she assumes the role as CEO of Velocity Changers, a globally-acclaimed company that is centered largely on offering it clients innovative ways to get their stories from out their spirits onto paper or, as McKnight jokingly says, on to “kindle.”

“We cater to most genres, but are particular to inspirational, empowerment-based fiction, business, and relational stories,” McKnight, 33, said of her business venture that is customarily accompanied by the slogan, ‘We change lives one book at a time.’

PUTTIN’ IN WORK — McKnight isn’t just an accomplished businesswoman. She’s one who has become thoroughly committed to ensuring that she continues to function diligently in her element.

A native the New Orleans, McKnight — who resides in Houston — said that she essentially was birthed into the entrepreneurship industry.


“Entrepreneurship has been all around me as my parents, uncles, and even neighbors in my grandmother’s neighborhood always had a means to help others through a paid skill. As I ventured into adulthood, the constraints of the 9-to-5 (job) life always left me sorely underwhelmed and innovatively distraught from a lack of creative flow and the inability to increase my income with perfected skills.” — Texas Businesswoman Kateri T. McKnight


That certainly isn’t the case today for McKnight, a sharp and resourceful businesswoman, who has surely enjoyed her share of sustained success as her own boss.

ANOTHER MASSIVE MILESTONE — McKnight recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.” An informative and intriguing project that hit the market via Amazon & Barnes and Noble online on December 15, McKnight will publicly promote her newly-assembled book during an official release party on January 15.

“I love the fact that I am able to pace my own creative flow and open others to do the same,” said McKnight, when asked what she loves the most about her business. “The very moment my clients have that rush of creative spark is when the flow becomes automatic and the inspiration becomes more infused into the work being completed.”

Having graduated in the top 20 percent of her class at New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker Senior High School, McKnight holds an Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health from Cameron College and is currently pursuing a four-year degree in Business Administration/Entrepreneurship.

An Air Force veteran, McKnight was serviced in Operation Enduring Freedom, as well as the Operation Iraqi Freedom Era.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — Having graduated in the top 20 percent of her class at New Orleans’ O. Perry Walker Senior High School, McKnight holds an Associate’s Degree in Occupational Health from Cameron College and is currently pursuing a four-year degree in Business Administration/Entrepreneurship.

As for Velocity Changers, she said she is committed to ensuring that it remains a center, of sorts, for authors and bloggers — “novice and seasoned,” she said — who need assistance in finding their voice to write their creative work in efforts to publish and become bestsellers.

“We have both Do-It-With-You and Do-It-For-You packages where we go from the brainstorming process, all the way to marketing and publishing in both group and one-on-one settings,” McKnight said.

Interestingly and to her credit, McKnight’s flourishing business has fueled her desire to become more of a fixture in the authorship industry.

That’s because she recently witnessed the much-anticipated release of her second book, which is entitled, “Whispering Passions: Secret Of The Meadows.”

Also, she will be a featured speaker during a local telesummit hosted by the Ruach Life Network, she announced recently.

A business that caters mostly to women — “and some men,” she said — ranging in ages 24 and 60, McKnight established Velocity Changers in 2014.

To her credit, it has been a constant success ever since.

“Positivity is my life,” McKnight said. “Without affirmations, well-wishes, and hopeful gestures, the spirit dies. So for me, inspiring and esteeming others is second nature just as breathing. Everyone has a story to tell, but most need a guide to help them pull it out of them and the confidence to stand in it.”

Conway, Arkansas author Christel West discovers her divine purpose through her ‘Journey Back To Me’ book


Am I now trying to win the approval of human beings, or of God? Or am I trying to please people? If I were still trying to please people, I would not be a servant of Christ. (Galatians 1:10 NIV)


Christel West had just about had enough.

“I had lived a life being and doing what everyone else wanted or thought I should be and in,” West, a Conway, Arkansas businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, explaining in great detail the notable events that led to her delving off into the authorship industry. “Doing so, I lost me, so I had to take the journey back to find who God created me to be.”


HOW THE WEST WAS WON

VISION UNFOLDED — A book whereby she grasped the vision to assemble some three years ago, Christel West’s “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within” is widely described as a book for individuals, particularly those who aspire to break a reoccurring cycle and refrain from going in West describes as “circles with their lives,” according to a news release at http://www.abnewswire.com.

It was, by all accounts, due in large part to the fact that West deemed it essential to shift her focus to God for a divine sense of direction that she had ultimately recaptured her life back.

And, to her credit, she spoke extensively about her assortment of personal experiences in her informative, awe-inspiring book entitled, “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.”

“Humans have long been known to revisit history for answers. Christel West is certain that this expository book will motivate readers to journey back through their childhood, and gather all the pieces of their lives — to discover what’s true about life,” said a spokesperson for West’s ‘The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.’ “She hopes that the insight obtained as readers go through her book will help them uncover all the lies that hold them prisoner and how they can choose to come face-to-face with them and find their liberation.”

A book that made its official release in Summer 2018, West began writing her story sometime in 2016.

KEEPING IT 100 — West spoke extensively about her assortment of personal experiences in her informative, awe-inspiring book entitled, “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within.”

“I thought I would call it, ‘Who Told You That You Were Naked,’” West said.

As it turned out, though, God had other ideas for a title for West’s written document.


“Later on, the spirit revealed that was a chapter that would be written in the ‘Journey Back To Me’ and a question the spirit needed me to answer. I finished writing my story I’m June of 2018, and it was officially published on July 31, 2018.” — Author Christel West 


Nearly five months removed from its much-anticipated release, West’s “The Journey Back To Me: Uncovering The Treasure Within” has been mostly favorable for West, a native of Detroit who also functions as Life Coach and Motivational Speaker and the Co-Founder of T.R.U.E., a non-profit organization she oversees with her husband, Marco West.

An acronym that stands for Teaching Restoring Understanding Establishing your T.R.U.E. Self, T.R.U.E, routinely conducts individual and group workshops through its True Self Outreach, one that is geared toward establishing, e-establishing, and healing the family structure, Christel West said.


MORE ON CHRISTEL WEST: www.christelwest.com

As for her book, West said, “The feedback has been about the courage that I had to embody, to share such personal things about my life like being molested and not knowing how to be intimate with my husband, because I had disconnected from my emotions due to this trauma that happened at the age of 12.

“I have been told, ‘Thank you’ from several people, who just needed answers, because without the understanding, we remain in the cycle.”

Because of who she is and because of where God is taking her, amongst the things about which West has found especially intriguing that her reading audience has possessed the pivotal things they so desperately sought prior to crossing paths with her book.

“People have found hope and encouragement from my story,” West, reciting the words to the familiar passage that is housed in 3 John 1:2. “So many want prosperity and good health, but haven’t done their soul work. If we are going to live healthy, long, prosperous lives, we have to rid ourselves of the toxic feelings and emotions that has caused us to self-sabotage and live in wilderness, finances, relationships, etc.”

Remarkably and appropriately stated by this brilliantly amazing author, one who had just about had enough.

Houston entrepreneur Melody Woods looking forward to 2019 with forthcoming wedding, documentary, new book


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud; It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs; Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth; It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveresLove never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away; For we know in part and we prophesy in part; but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears; When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me; For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known; And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:4-13 NIV)


 

DALLAS — Melody Woods has endured enough turmoil and hardships, has encountered enough heartbreaks and letdowns, has pressed and navigated her way through enough unfavorable situations and circumstances to be able to identify when God is strategically positioning and elevating her for promotion.

Consider, for instance, how God had allowed Woods’ path to cross with Jesse James Willis III, her beloved fiancé, with whom she will exchange nuptials in the coming months.

Awwwww…


HER KING, HIS QUEEN

BACK AND BETTER THAN EVER — During an exclusive interview with Making Headline News, Woods, a longtime Houston-area entrepreneur who is the founder and CEO of MWG Tax And Financial Service Inc., announced the forthcoming debut of her documentary and release of her book, both of which are entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies.” Woods book is projected to hit the market on November 24, 2019. Pictured with Woods is Jesse James Willis III, her beloved fiancé, with whom she will exchange nuptials in the coming months.

“Where do I begin? The word, ‘joy,’ I never thought I would ever experience as far as a relationship,” Woods, during a recent interview with Making Headline News, explained when asked to describe the joy her soul mate has brought to her life.

Despite all through which she gone and conquered, Woods was found guilty of clinging to unwavering faith, coupled with a solid prayer life.

That is when God miraculously showed up on her behalf, thus allowing the right man to find her, a man whom she ironically has known for a little more than two decades.

“I have prayed to have a man that is so genuinely loving, faithful, patient, understanding, compassionate…someone as silly as me and, who most of all, keeps God first in his life,” Woods, displaying her customary big smile while offering her assessment of her Willis. “He is my best friend and I thank God for this man every day. Most people think we just meet. No, we’ve been knowing each other for over 20 years, which will be more detailed in my upcoming book.”

Said Willis, echoing some rather similar excitement for his significant other: “(Melody) has brought me overwhelming love, warm smiles, multiplied with happiness, encouraging words and thoughts are what she brought into my life. Having a plethora of things in common increase wonderful emotions. Our togetherness with those facts makes us able to overcome any obstacle.”

THE PROVERBS 18:22 AFFECT — Despite all through which she gone and conquered, Woods was found guilty of clinging to unwavering faith, coupled with a solid prayer life. That is when God miraculously showed up on her behalf, thus allowing the right man to find her, a man whom she ironically has known for a little more than two decades.

During an exclusive interview with MHN, Woods, a longtime Houston-area entrepreneur who is the founder and CEO of MWG Tax And Financial Service Inc., announced the forthcoming release of her book entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies,” which is projected to hit the market on November 24, 2019.

Interestingly, Woods’ book will be viable extension of her upcoming documentary that is also entitled, “The Surviving Butterflies,” a narrative that will depict an assortment of Woods’ personal and tumultuous experiences or, as she specifically acknowledged, “the obstacles I have overcome,” not to mention “the  removing a mask that I wore for 16 years.”

Much to the delight of this Texas couple, Willis suggested that Woods move forward with a 90-minute documentary she hopes attracts the attention of some of Hollywood’s big name directors and producers.

Woods said she hopes that someone such as renowned actor, playwright, filmmaker, and comedian Tyler Perry gets word of her forthcoming documentary.

“What if someone like Tyler Perry hears about this documentary? I would be so honored on so many levels. I would love for him to back my movie. I’m speaking it to existence.” — Melody Woods


Much like she spoke into existence her harvest season, this after having survived arguably the greatest tragedies of her life.

Just last summer, Woods’ heart was broken considerably when a close member of her family had suddenly passed away.

JESSE’S G.O.A.T — Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

As if that wasn’t enough to rattle and shake up her family, Woods surprisingly suffered what doctors had described as a major stroke a little more than a month later, a stunning development that damaged the right side of her brain.

“God was definitely in the midst of it all, because one thing I know, I’m a fighter and all I can think about is everything I wanted to do and say if,” Woods, during a December 2017 interview with Making Headline News, said, assessing how she overcame what undoubtedly was a disastrous, emotionally-driven time for her.

Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

Then comes some big-hearted, loving guy named Jesse James Willis III, a native Houstonian, who bears the namesake of his father and grandfather.

Even after having initially crossed paths some two decades ago, Willis stumbled upon Woods.

Once again.

However, this time, their reuniting had become far more arousing and captivating. In no particular order, though.

Willis then thought it necessary to ask Woods out on a date. Woods graciously said yes.

Then they went out on a date at some point.

And another one.

And another one.

And another one.

And…well, you get the point.

Then things got more and more serious between the two, this after Willis had won Woods’ heart. And vice versa.

MELODY’S G.O.A.T. — Fast forward to September 6, 2018, Willis sensed after a little more than two decades, there was no time to allow another 20 years elapse, much less a year. That was the day Willis proposed. That was the day Woods said yes.

Fast forward to September 6, 2018, Willis sensed that after a little more than two decades, there was no time to allow another 20 years elapse, much less a year.

That was the day Willis proposed. That was the day Woods said yes.

Now here they are, months away from their much-anticipated wedding, months away from a tear-jerking documentary that figures to create a global buzz, months away from a book that figures to find its way on the New York Times best-seller list.

Yep. Reunited, and it feels so good.

“Honestly, I never been so excited about a totally New Year,” said Woods, explaining how 2019 will be a new beginning for her, particularly after having endured and outlast so much adversity. “I had to understand that happiness is not out there, it’s in you. I always had the key to being happy, but know I understand I have the power to choose what to accept and let go of.”

AFTER SHE SUFFERED AWHILE — Still, when the dust settled, when the adversary sensed that he had this prized Texas businesswoman down for the count and rendered unto her a potential death sentence, here comes God, His usual reliable Self, showing on her behalf, thus cross-examining the enemy’s plots and schemes as only He could.

For Woods, chances are, she will find herself clinging tight to her fiancée on New Year’s Eve, unleashing tears of joy, the kind of tears that seemed displaced last year around this time.

“I’m going into a New Year more confident, stronger, determined more than ever,” said Woods, still placing her smile on public display which, as far as she is concerned, is just where it belongs. “God prepared me for this moment and I’m ready to share my testimony with the world…not just my dark days, but my brighter days.”

Credit the fact that after having endured enough turmoil and hardships, enough heartbreaks and letdowns, enough unfavorable situations and circumstances, she still persevered in that she’s able to identify when God is strategically positioning and elevating her for promotion.

IN THAT ORDER — “I’m going into a New Year more confident, stronger, determined more than ever,” said Woods, still placing her smile on public display which, as far as she is concerned, is just where it belongs. “God prepared me for this moment and I’m ready to share my testimony with the world…not just my dark days, but my brighter days.”

So bring on 2019 and everything that comes with it.

Because there’s no doubt this Texas businesswoman is destined to continue to do things big — with her soon-to-be-husband right alongside her, cheering her on.

“Releasing my documentary, starting my nonprofit organization, my book and, most of all, marrying best friend and sharing our love story. Also opening 4 new businesses by 2020,” said Woods, reviewing her forthcoming itinerary for such remarkable time as now. “We are ready to share and help change families’  lives for the better.”

All of these heaven-mandated promotions — all of these well-deserved blessings after having survived arguably the greatest tragedies of her life.
