University of West Georgia’s Kambria Hardnett makes her much-anticipated authorship debut


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)


MIRROR IMAGE OF FAITH 

WOMAN OF EXCELLENCE — A senior at the University of West Georgia, Kambria Hardnett is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Matters of HER: A Millenial’s Faith Building Process,” her newly-produced written work that is a couple of months removed having been officially published.

DALLAS — At the end of the real day, Kambria Hardnett made sure she had done the very thing that mattered most.

She simply trusted the process.
At the end of the real day, God was faithful and just to have done the very thing that mattered most to His beloved daughter.
He rewarded her mightily for weathering and conquering the process, exalted her unlike never before for exercising her faith in such a way that it has benefited others as a result.
“I’ve had an extremely tough time while being in college, and I feel that what I have written will help others when going through tough times, feeling like there is no way out,” Hardnett, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, recalling the memorable developments that have contributed to her quest of becoming an author.
A book that is especially geared toward encouraging her fellow millennials, Hardnett’s authorship debut, too, has been nothing short of amazing.

A senior at the University of West Georgia, Hardnett is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “Matters of HER: A Millenial’s Faith Building Process,” her newly-produced written work that is a couple of months removed having been officially published.

For Hardnett, a Mass Communications major — with a minor in African American studies — her new book is an authentic testament of her hard work, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-bend faith she’s steadfastly exemplified, particularly since making the transition from high school to college.

Interestingly, Hardnett doesn’t shy away from the notion that her book was produced, in large part to serve as a spiritual GPS system, of sorts, to those who look up to her.


“What pushed me to finish I would say it was little cousins and play nieces,” said Hardnett, a native of Newnan, Georgia, who commenced to composing her book in August 2017. “I want them to know that this is a process; it’s going to be hard at times and to know that there is a reason for the pain.”


A book that is comprised of just five chapters — with the No. 5 signifying the spiritual number for the term, “grace,” this writer acknowledged —- Hardnett’s “Matters of HER” is spearheaded by the familiar Biblical passage that is  Ephesians 2:8, which addresses the subject of faith in great detail.

“This book saved my life,” Hardnett said of a book that was written by the Apostle Paul. “It saved me spiritually, and I only pray that it does the same for someone else.”

To Hardnett’s credit, that seems to already be the case, given the favorable feedback she’s garnered since word spread of her newly-produced book.

“The feedback has been nothing short of amazing, (people saying) just hearing how relatable the book is, or how those twice my age have been blessed by it,” Hardnett said. “I’m just grateful for all of the feedback I’ve received thus far.”

A book that is especially geared toward encouraging her fellow millennials, Hardnett’s authorship debut, too, has been nothing short of amazing.


YOU GO GIRL!!!! 

For Hardnett, a Mass Communications major — with a minor in African American studies — her new book is an authentic testament of her hard work, coupled with her bend-but-don’t-bend faith she’s steadfastly exemplified, particularly since making the transition from high school to college.

Which, much to her delight, sums up why a few more written works are on the horizon, she said.

“Yes…I have a couple of books in mind, and a possible idea for a script,” Hardnett said.

A book that is comprised of just five chapters — with the No. 5 signifying the spiritual number for the term, “grace,” this writer acknowledged —- Hardnett’s “Matters of HER” is spearheaded by the familiar Biblical passage that is  Ephesians 2:8, which addresses the subject of faith in great detail.

More than anything, college student-turned-author is overwhelmingly grateful for God’s unmerited favor on her life, which is why she’s fully persuaded the best is yet to come.

“I believe that everything I have gone through prepared me for the moments in which I was writing,” said Hardnett, “because these chapters aren’t just ideas I’ve had about the process, but revelations to things I’ve gone through.”

With God, her Helper, steering the way.

Atlanta-area businesswoman Kenyatta Bell displaying agape love for millennials as catalyst for Epic Life Ministry


Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves. (Philippians 2:3 KJV)


GOD’S EPIC PLAN 

DESTINY STEPS — A native of Gay, Georgia, Kenyatta Bell is the catalyst for the Epic Management Group, an Atlanta-area ministry that was spearheaded on IHeart Radio B96.3 and is aired all over a slew of airwaves.

Just before midday EST on Tuesday, Kenyatta Bell took to her Facebook timeline, where she staged a rather spirited, encouraging post.

Said Bell before her nearby 5,000 social media followers:
It’s a great day to have God’s perfect peace that surpasses our understanding. This joy I have.
To grasp a thorough concept of why Bell, a devout woman of faith, had deemed it essential to enlighten the masses of just how much God has infused her with the kind of joy the world didn’t merely give her, look no further than how her Creator has strategically set her aside for His use.

MORE ON EPIC LIFE MINISTRY: https://www.facebook.com/EpicManagementGroup/

Widely regarded as Epic Life Ministry, this company has also launched a social media teaching — a segment that’s collectively conducted by Epic Life staffers Gina Beverly, Danielle Sunderhouse and Corey Watts — whereby it has garnered a global audience.

Interestingly, Epic Management Group has partnered with The Lighthouse Radio Station to host an array of what company officials describe as “epic life experiences,” most notably for middle and high school students.

“The uniqueness of my childhood, coupled with life experiences of my own children, want to ignite identities and empower purpose in the millennial generation,” Bell, during an interview this week with Making Headline News, said, when how her competitive drive in life propel her for her latest business venture. “(My personal mission is to) ignite the identity and empower the purpose in others.”

A graduate of Greenville (Georgia) High School, Bell advanced her education at nearby West Georgia Technical College of LaGrange, Georgia.

A TRUE ANGEL — Generally, the sustained success of Epic Life has come to fruition, in large part because of the one key fruit of the spirit that God commands us to fortify daily: love.

Consequently, she enrolled at American Intercontinental University of Atlanta.

A business venture that is centered largely on enriching and enhancing the lives of millennials, Bell is especially resourceful in that she has been passionate in her keen ability to help others discover — and reconnect with — the purpose for which they were created.


“I love the ability to help others know who they are in Christ and know there is a great purpose for their lives,” Bell emphasized. “My ministry is for everyone; however our target audience is the millennial generation.”


For what it’s worth, Bell’s organization, by all accounts, was birthed out of what obviously is a wealth of experience on her part.

Much to her delight, it is due in large part to her notable experience, coupled with her routinely exemplifying having a heart for people of all walks of life, that have fueled her fervent desire to help advance the kingdom for such a time as now.

“I personally know what it feels like to not know who you are and not be sure of your purpose,” Bell said. “I never want anyone to lack the knowledge of self-identity, worth, and purpose.”

“Lastly, He knew them when they were formed in their mom’s (womb) and He knows the plans that he has for them, declares the Lord…plans to prosper and not to harm, plans to give hope and a great future.”

Masterfully and eloquently said by this devout, big-hearted woman of faith, one who’s destined to savor a great day virtually every day — all the while harboring God’s perfect peace, the kind that surpasses our understanding.

Atlanta author Qshebra Taylor defies toughest of odds, assembles a book that figures to have global impact


I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. (Psalm 139:14 NIV)


UNSHAKABLE FAITH 

WOMAN THOU ART LOOSED — A native of Memphis who currently resides in Atlanta, Qshebra L. Taylor is the mastermind behind the awe-inspiring book entitled, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.: The Molding Matrimony of Healing, Expectations, Realizations.”

For Qshebra Latash Taylor, her God-assigned vision for composing her latest book was revealed some five years ago.

Much to her delight, such an adventure consequently had come full circle a year or so ago.
“The vision was given about five years ago, yet the clarification, hope, and strategies for writing the book were revealed about one year ago,” Taylor told Making Headline News during a recent interview. “I believe I was created to encourage, inspire, and empower individuals in ministry, personal life, and business.”
Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extraordinaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

BUY QSHEBRA’S BOOK HERE: www.Allvizionz4all.com

A MUST READ — Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well that she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

A book Taylor began assembling in January 2018 before the tragic death of her son — who was murdered in May 2018 — resulted in a temporary standstill with this project, “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” was finally completed just last month.

The founder and CEO of BAMM EmpowerEment Ministries and All Visions Enterprise LLC, Taylor’s “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.” will be available to pre-sale order August 15.

The nationwide release for this book will take place on October 13.

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she has finally gotten her latest published document completed, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.


“As a vision coach and strategist, my heart’s desire is to help others to see insight beyond life’s ups and down,” said Taylor, providing a detailed synopsis of why she chose to write her latest book. “My greatest inspiration was after a conversation I remember having with my son.”


For Taylor, it was a life-altering dialogue by which she will recall for the rest of her life.

“He said he couldn’t see past the darkness — past decisions, choices, etc.,” Taylor explained. “I knew what that felt like when I was growing up in Memphis and it flowed into my life as an adult. The darkness became my norm and I was so afraid to live, pursue, and expect greater. This behavior allowed me to settle my whole life — friendships, relationships, partnerships, and leadership — and I was scared to accept who God said I was and what I could have.”


PRE-SALE ORDER QSHEBRA’S BOOK NOW

Having acknowledged that her past, by all accounts, had become what she describes as her “prison,” there was, in fact, somewhat of a silver-lining in the midst of what was seemingly nothing more than organized confusion in the life of this devout woman of faith whom, to her credit, was determined not to take defeat lying down.

Because of whom she is and because of where God is taking her, she had a few good reasons not to allow her faith to waver during a time it seemed on the brink of throwing in the towel.

But God…

“My past has become a molding platform to reintroduce who I was and who God called me to be,” Taylor said. “My past protected me as a survivor, but my future is calling forth me as a thriver.”

Interestingly, it wasn’t until after Taylor had rediscovered her God-given worth that she sensed full well she had to move forward with “T.R.U.E. SHADES OF H.E.R.”

“I started off writing about my healing to help others through their storms and later on turned into helping others see beyond their disappointments,” said Taylor, alluding to life-changing occurrences such as devastation, death, denial, and divorce or, as she specifically singles out, ‘two abusive husbands.’

“My grandma encouraged me to marry a man who I did not like just to say I am married and my children have a father,” Taylor continued. “And then I married again only to marry someone who was able to handle my right now, but not my future (he was “jealous and intimated of my ministry” she explained. “From the ministry of misery to the ministry of motivational matrimony.”

All things considered, Taylor would be the first to admit that she’s most grateful to Almighty God for complete restoration, for a new lease on life, if you will.

Fortunately for Taylor, an empowerment extradionaire in her own right, she’s been greatly afforded the golden opportunity to have an influential impact on the lives of countless of individuals, most notably through her immeasurable gifts as an accomplished author.

“I will no longer settle for anything or anyone less than what and who God has for me,” Taylor said without hesitation. “My son’s death has become the rebirth of who God has called me to be. God will use what you’ve gone through in the past and your right-now to build a wonderful masterpiece.

“All things work together,” added Taylor, now starting to sound alike seasoned evangelist. “When you know you are in God, it’s so easy to live according to God’s word so you can access God’s best.”

Having produced seven written works dating back to 2015 with a few more on the horizon, Taylor is especially appreciative of the notion that she had finally gotten her latest published document done, considering it comes amid arguably the darkest season of her life — a sometimes disastrous, stormy season whereby she has been equipped and molded to be used by God to help advance His kingdom unlike never before.

Despite all through which she has gone and survived, Taylor doesn’t shy away from the notion that she steadfastly heard God’s Voice loud and clear.

Therefore, she had no other choice but to react accordingly.

“(That is) returning back to my First Love. That’s God,” Taylor said without hesitation.

Once again.

Talk about exemplifying unshakable faith.

Georgia entrepreneur Nicole Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services providing efficient childcare solutions


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.” (Matthew 19:14 NIV)


PAYING IT FORWARD 

HEARTS OF GOLD — The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta, Nicole Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters who are passionate about the care and development of children

Some two years ago, Nicole Wrice discovered a need, particularly with regards to providing what she describes as quality care for children and families.

With God, her Helper steering the way, she has devised strategic and efficient ways to meet those needs.
“It isn’t really competition that drives me,” Wrice, a Columbus, Georgia-based businesswoman, told Making Headline News this week, when asked how her competitive drive in life propelled her for business venture. “I saw that there was a need of quality care for children and families that weren’t being met. I felt like someone had to offer more, to do it better…and I knew I could do it better. So I did.”
Indeed she has, having established a strategic and flourishing endeavor that is Magnolia Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta.

The proud founder and CEO of Magnolia Heart, Wrice’s company is widely known for offering a full range of childcare solutions, accompanied by the goal of offering parents the peace of mind of hiring professional, trustworthy nannies and sitters, who are passionate about the care and development of children.

Magnolia Heart Nanny Services of Greater Atlanta is located at 4 Bradley Park Court, Unit 2H.

“Whether parents are looking for a traditional nanny, a local babysitter for date nights, event childcare for a wedding, or backup childcare for employees, we are ready to connect them with a highly qualified caregiver to meet their unique needs,” said Wrice, 43, providing a detailed overview of Magnolia Heart.


DID YOU KNOW…

  • Magnolia Heart Babysitters  is a database that brings local parents and babysitters together, offering parents the peace of mind of hiring a Magnolia dedicated babysitter that has been fully screened, background checked, and CPR certified.
  • Munchkins Corporate Care is the newest addition to the Magnolia Heart family, and offers organizations from small businesses to fortune 500 companies the opportunity to increase employee productivity, morale, and retention by offering a competitive back up childcare plan for working parents.  We also provide on-site event care for conventions, conferences, and other corporate events and, 
  • Magnolia Heart Nanny Services  (or MHNS) works closely with families to find fully screened, professional nannies that meet the unique needs of each family. We do all the work, and you interview and select the candidate that will be the best fit for your family.

A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured ventures: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

A native of Homerville, Georgia, Wrice emphasized, among other things, that her primary objective through her progressive, thriving business is to routinely provide families with the quality and efficient care they deserve.

“I like knowing that I am making difference in the lives of children, parents, and nannies,” Wrice said. “I like helping nannies to grow and develop their skills and hearing success stories of how much they love the children and family when I check in with them after placement.

IN THE NEWS — Much to their delight, Gene and Nicole Wrice are starting to generate mainstream media headlines for all the right reasons. Gene Wrice is a United State Army Major.

The more she witnesses and hears of these proverbial feel-good stories, the more she becomes overwhelmingly grateful of the notion that she’s walking in the divine purpose for which she was created.


“I love hearing success stories from parents and nannies, like the parents who told me that their child with special needs is happy and secure and able to participate in extracurricular activities with the help of his nanny, rather than being kicked out of day care centers,” Wrice recalled. “I’m excited to see employees strive for their potential and feel cared for when businesses and corporations offer backup care services.”


All things considered, providing what Wrice and staff dub as “total care” is absolutely essential, particularly as it relates to the sustained success of Magnolia Heart.

“Our nannies work with any age and we even offer adult special needs care,” said Wrice, adding that her company’s private and corporate events typically offer childcare to children ranging in the ages of eight weeks to 12 years old.”

Much to Wrice’s delight, greater things are on the horizon for her endeavor in the coming months, she said.

Amongst those is the startup of Magnolia Heart Senior Care, which is scheduled to officially go into operations sometime in 2020.

“Also, we work with nannies of all ages to place them with the right family — many are college students — but we also have former teachers, nurses, and even grandmothers,” Wrice said.

Wrice’s Magnolia Heart Nanny Services’ original site is based in Columbus, Georgia. Consequently, there eventually arose a high demand for a second office that’s housed in nearby Atlanta.

FAMILY FOCUS — A company that went into full operations in 2017, Magnolia Heart featured avenues include: Magnolia Heart Nanny Services, Magnolia Heart Babysitters, and Munchkins Corporate Care.

“Our event care nannies work throughout the southeastern United States,” Wrice said. “Our newest sister company, Munchkins Corporate Care, is ready to assist businesses with back up childcare for their employees nationwide.”

To her credit, Wrice boasts an array of experience, which has greatly enabled her to functioning mightily in her element as the face of Magnolia Heart, considering she’s a military spouse of 19-plus years and a working mother of seven children, one of whom is of special needs.

“I have decades of experience working in the childcare industry as a nanny for military families,” said Wrice, the former owner of Little Bizzy Bees Daycare who also boasts more than two decades of experience in the medical field.

“So I can accurately say I’ve spent most of my life focused on helping children grow, develop, and learn in a loving, safe environment. I personally understand the enormous obstacles that parents face when looking for reliable childcare, especially for children who have special needs,” continued Wrice, adding that she was inspired by her daughter with special needs and her late father to advance Magnolia Heart.

Interestingly, Wrice also credits her grandmother for having played an integral role in her entrepreneurship success.

“A lot of my passion comes from her,” Wrice said of her grandmother. “We have a large family.”

A little more than two years removed from having established what is shaping up to be a company whose best and brightest days are well ahead of it, Wrice doesn’t shy away from the notion that Magnolia Heart is positioning itself fervently to have a national impact — much sooner than later.

“Seeing the need for quality childcare for working families led me to start a full service nanny agency that has a business model focused on the well-being of both the family and the nanny,” she said. “We’re looking to do business with corporations. We offer corporate backup care and corporate on-site event childcare.”

That’s not all, Wrice acknowledged.

“We’re looking to do business with corporations through Munchkin Corporate Care and that’s where we do backup childcare for corporations and their employees,” Wrice added. “They can give us a call or they can request a meeting. We are nationwide for onsite event childcare and we are nationwide for corporate backup childcare.”

Greater Community COGIC’s the Bridge at ATL helping individuals achieve their post-high school educational goals while advancing the kingdom

BRIDGING A KINGDOM-BASED GAP — At the request of Greater Community Pastor Matthew Brown, TH.D., the Frederick and Samantha Walker in February 2017 assumed the monumental task of spearheading and relaunching the church’s Young Adult And College Ministry through an organization widely known as the Bridge at ATL. Having become a full fledge configuration on April 30, 2017, the BRIDGE’s primary emphasis is geared largely toward supporting young adults, particularly those as they navigate through their time of academic and/or vocational preparation toward their respective careers while enhancing their spiritual growth and faith walk, a spokesperson for GCC said.

MARIETTA, Georgia — Knowledge is power.

Surely, while we’ve all heard — or perhaps uttered — such a familiar catchphrase, as far as enriching and enhancing one’s life goes, Greater Community Church Of God In Christ’s mission includes, among other things, ensuring that its members thoroughly grasp the notion of just how powerful knowledge is — both in the spiritual and natural realms.

“In today’s society, social media is vital,” Greater Community member newcomer Minister Frederick Walker told Making Headline News during a recent interview.

And to GCC’s credit, Walker and his wife, Samantha Walker, are routinely devising ways to aid young adults mightily, particularly as it pertains to maximizing their potential by way of achieving their lofty educational goals and objectives.

At the request of Greater Community Pastor Matthew Brown, TH.D., the Walkers in February 2017 assumed the monumental task of spearheading and relaunching the church’s Young Adult And College Ministry through an organization widely known as the Bride at ATL.

Having become a full fledge configuration on April 30, 2017, the Bride at ATL’s primary emphasis is geared largely toward supporting young adults, particularly those as they navigate through their time of academic and/or vocational preparation toward their respective careers while enhancing their spiritual growth and faith walk, a spokesperson for GCC said.

For starters, the chief concept was to establish a young adult and college ministry, of sorts, one that would be accompanied by what the Walkers described as a “regional influence” while having a permanent establishment housed at nearby Kennesaw State University.

That, in a nutshell, was all a part of Pastor Matthew Brown’s vision from the outset.

Given the Bride at ATL is in its infancy, this organization is currently comprised of a little more than 50 enrollees, the Walkers said, although their regular discussion group via  GroupMe exceeds somewhere around 100 views, while their Facebook-based Inspirational and Life Skills videos customarily amass more than 1,000 views.

The rest, as they say, was history.

“Christian young adults are being connected with others who share the same Biblical beliefs, values and spiritual goal-building a strong community of support and encouragement,” said Samantha Walker, when asked what is especially intriguing about the Bride at ATL. “They are being inspired to grow in their faith and given opportunities to serve in ministry utilizing while enhancing the gifts God placed in them.

THE UNIVERSITY OF JESUS — With the oversight and guidance from Pastor Brown and the support of a solid and resourceful multi-generational team, the Bridge at ATL was officially approved as a chartered KSU-based organization in May 2017 and had effectively gone into operations approximately three months later. The rest, as they say, was history.

What’s even more astounding, Samantha acknowledged, is that the Godly witnesses of those enrolled in this institution essentially becomes more effectively, especially in this, our sometime controversial and divided modern-day church era.

WHAT ABOUT GREATER? http://www.greatercommunitycogic.org/

“They are being prepared to be more effective witnesses for Christ by expanding the Kingdom and being leaders in the marketplace, their communities and the church,” Samantha said.

GREATER IS COMING TO GREATER — Although this newly-established organization is a few months removed from his inception, it’s safe to assume that GCC’s the Bridge at ATL’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

Given the Bridge at ATL is in its infancy, this organization is currently comprised of a little more than 50 enrollees, the Walkers said, although their regular discussion group via  GroupMe exceeds somewhere around 100 views, while their Facebook-based Inspirational and Life Skills videos customarily amass more than 1,000 views.

Although this newly-established organization is a few months removed from his inception, it’s safe to assume that GCC’s the Bridge at ATL’s best and brightest days are well ahead of it.

“Let’s all do our part in outreach right here at home by encouraging our young adults whether they take a college path or a vocational one,” Frederick said. “Help us be the bridge that encourages and assists young adults to crossover into their God-given destiny by completing their degree programs or vocational training to have successful careers but, more importantly, help them become the church of today and tomorrow.”

Because after all, knowledge is power — both in the spiritual and natural realms.

CHASING GREATNESSTo his distinct credit, Jerico Wiggins has steadfastly gone to great, immeasurable lengths to ensure that he helps enrich and adds value to the lives of others, most notably through his avenue of entrepreneurship.
A former athlete in a variety of competitive sports, Wiggins, 38, is owner and chief executive officer of Enkore Fitness Pro, LLC, a well-established Atlanta-area fitness gymnasium that offers sports conditioning for athletes that will greatly enable them to improve an assortment of key components, many of which will aid them in evolving as better athletes.

Just recently, Jerico Wiggins was asked why it is imperative that he esteem others daily highly than himself.

As usual, Wiggins, whose reputation and personality are such that he boasts a heart for people, provided the appropriate answer.

“It’s imperative to esteem and inspire (others) daily because it helps motivate growth, give others hope, and inspire others to be better,” Wiggins told Making Headline News this week.

To his distinct credit, Wiggins has steadfastly gone to great, immeasurable lengths to ensure that he helps enrich and adds value to the lives of others, most notably through his avenue of entrepreneurship.

MAKING STRIDESJust like athletes with whom he routinely crosses paths, it was his contributions to sports that greatly fueled his desire to establish — and prosper — as a thriving businessman/health fitness guru.
“Sports have helped me in my business in many ways but, most of all, because I also have a firsthand experience on what athletes go through as far as conditioning and preparing for competition,” Wiggins explained. “It also helped me to be able to identify one’s strengths and weaknesses in their performances.”

“We do body transformation to clients as well,” a spokesperson for Enkore Fitness Pro said.

Located at 1999 Parker Court, Suite A, in Stone Mountain, Georgia, Wiggins’ company —- which is sanctioned through the Dekalb Chamber of Commerce — has appropriately adopted the catchphrase, “We’re The Foundation To Greatness.”

By and large, because of his commitment to serving his clients masterfully, coupled with his ability to inspire them to assume a positive disposition about their overall fitness and health, Enkore Fitness is surely a venture that’s on the move.

“I wanted to create a place where my clients can push, be pushed, educated, and mentally ready as an athlete to be pushed to greatness,” Wiggins, a native of Eatonton, Georgia said.

“Sports have helped me in my business in many ways but, most of all, because I also have a firsthand experience on what athletes go through as far as conditioning and preparing for competition,” Wiggins explained. “It also helped me to be able to identify one’s strengths and weaknesses in their performances.”

A Putnam County High School alum who is a former attendee of the Georgia Career Institute, Wiggins holds a certified professional personal training through the ACE Personal Trainer Certification, a credible institution that teaches personal trainer manual features, or a different combination of study aids designed to help aspiring fitness trainers prepare for the exam and excel within their career.

Given the immense strides he’s made since starting his gym nearly three years ago, Wiggins undoubtedly is proven success.

He’s been a professional trainer for a little more than 11 years.

“What I like about my business is it’s not only a dream come true and my passion, but I feel like it gives me purpose daily,” said Wiggins, adding his business caters to individuals of all ages. “And I’m able to pass (along my knowledge) to help someone else.

Aside of the helping young athletes achieve and savor excellence through their respective sport, Wiggins acknowledged that excellence in life is something by which he’s guilty of educating to his clients — as often as he can.

“My personal mission is to help others not only exceed in sports,” said Wiggins, “but to realize that with the proper skills and determination, the sky is the limit and to help them understand excellence is something that is worked on daily and doesn’t come easily.”

As usual, Wiggins, whose reputation and personality are such that he boasts a heart for people, provided the appropriate answers.

All of which practically sums up why Enkore Fitness Pro has become a fixture in the Atlanta metropolitan area.
