Memphian Ponya Dodson defies odds, becomes top executive for Total Life Changes

ddddMortgage payments for Demetrius and Ponya Dodson were supposed have lasted for 30 years.

Fortunately for them, God had other ideas.

In a miraculous sequence of events, the Dodsons somehow managed to pay off their home in 16 years, a stunning development that subsequently caught them by surprise, thus gave way to all smiles.

A life-enhancing occurrence about which ultimately changed the overall landscape of their lives, the Dodsons undoubtedly have their Creator to thank first and foremost.

Then, of course, Total Life Changes.

ggggaaaaaaaaBy and large, Total Life Changes maintains an active vision of selecting and providing superior products that have a lasting effect on consumer’s health while providing these same customers with an opportunity to change their socioeconomic status through a rewarding binary compensation plan, according to a report at

In addition, a spokesperson for TLC acknowledged that, “Thousands upon thousands of people have already benefited from our signature line of Iaso™ Weight-loss and Skin Care products and are well on their way to sustaining a permanent secondary income. Moreover, TLC will continue to deliver quality products matched with a resilient support team to help you every step of the way.”

aaaaAll of which is to say that fortunately for the Dodsons, TLC has benefited them mightily in such a short, yet efficient timeframe.

So much, in fact, that Ponya Dodson, who’s emerged as executive director for TLC, thinks it necessary daily to help enhance and impact and esteem the lives of others.

So far, so good — with God, her Helper, leading the way.

“What I love the most about being a business owner with Total Life Changes is the fact that I know that I am a part of something that is so much bigger than myself,” Dodson told News Reporter Andre Johnson. “I have the esteemed pleasure of waking up daily to inboxes, texts, and phone calls from clients that I consider family, whose lives are being changed. From being able to lose the desired weight that they have tried for years and failed to lose, to doctors giving them great reports, even to the fact of them being taken off prescribed medications that they have been on for most of their lives.”

Amongst the things about which Ponya Dodson finds even more astounding is that for someone who had to battle an assortment of physical challenges, particularly for nearly the past two decades, TLC products essentially have revived her overall health unlike never before.

sssss“I am so passionate about this (business venture), because I, too, am someone that knows how it is to deal with sickness and pain and being on medications for years,” said Ponya Dodson, who turns 40 in August. “I had dealt with sickness since the age of 19, but after starting to use our amazing products almost 19 months ago, I feel the best I have in all of my adult life.”

For Ponya Dodson, there’s more to her remarkable,tear-jerking testimony and subsequent rise as a featured executive for TLC.

Just like God.

“This company has also been great for my family and I financially as well,” Ponya Dodson explained. “A little over a year ago, I was working a 9-5 a job in Corporate America but, as stated earlier, I had health issues I was battling with. Due to those issues, I ended up having a major surgery, but what truly changed my life was the events after the surgery. I ended back in the hospital two days later from complications and with what so many others died from.”

But God, to Whom this TLC big wig so eloquently referenced.

vvvvvvv“By the grace of God, I am still here, but I ended up having to alter my life because what went from seeing 1 specialist for the original problem turned into 4. With that being said, I had to miss a lot of work, so my job called and said, ‘Ponya, we understand but we have to let you go.’ No warning. Nothing.”

Little did she know, however, her untimely job termination eventually turned out to be a troublesome, downtrodden encounter wrapped up in arguably the biggest breakthrough of her life.

“This was truly a blessing in disguise,” said Ponya, “because I already had a Plan B, which was Total Life Changes.”

A life-enhancing transition that ultimately turned what was a 30-year mortgage into one that was burned after just 16 years.



What a mighty God we serve.
