Denver-based businessman Gregg Delaney destined to have a monumental impact with his Triview Production in Dallas/Fort Worth

aDALLAS — Just recently, Denver-based businessman Gregg Delaney was asked why it is so vital that through his profession, he esteems others daily.

As usual, Delaney was rather forthright and direct.

STAR STUDDED --- Organized nearly two years ago, according to www.companiescolorado.com, Triview Production is a broadcast-oriented, high quality video production company whereby its focus, according to CEO Gregg Delaney, is geared largely on accommodating corporate events and business video production for marketing purposes. “There are so many new and small businesses in this area competing for their piece of the American dream,” Delaney said in explaining the purpose for his business that has grasped the attention of a number internationally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably renowned rapper Snoop Dogg and longtime actor/comedian Bill Bellamy. “And major corporations tend to monopolize marketing that does not allow a small business owner to have the same access to create the same impact.”

“It’s important that I inspire others through my works, because every business owner that I offer these services to, I am just like them…with a dream and a foot in the door, praying and hoping that someone…anyone can offer me an opportunity to be what God has promised,” Delaney told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during an exclusive interview. “My struggle is their struggle. Their business is my business. And just like each of them, I wake up every morning, praying that someone will be blessed by what I can offer them.”

MILE HIGH TEXAS --- To his credit, Delaney has become a notable fixture as an accomplished entrepreneur, most notably in the Denver metropolitan area. Now after essentially making a name for himself as what many has deem “the face” of his business in the Mile High city, Delaney boasts lofty aspirations of building and enhancing his media-savvy brand in a rather broader market, particularly in throughout the Dallas/Fort Worth area.

Delaney, 40, is owner and chief executive officer of TriView Production, LLC, based in Aurora, Colorado.

Organized nearly two years ago, according to www.companiescolorado.com, TriView Productions is a broadcast-oriented, high quality video production company whereby its focus, according to Delaney, is geared largely on accommodating corporate events and business video production for marketing purposes.

jhs“There are so many new and small businesses in this area competing for their piece of the American dream,” Delaney said in explaining the purpose for his business that has grasped the attention of a number of internationally-acclaimed celebrities, most notably renowned rapper Snoop Dogg and longtime actor/comedian Bill Bellamy. “And major corporations tend to monopolize marketing that does not allow a small business owner to have the same access to create the same impact.”

Armed with an array of experience, coupled with a solid feel for news and marketing judgment, Delaney, to his credit, had proven long before the inception of his company that he boasts the intelligence and perseverance to accommodate companies, large or small.

“I create the exact quality of visual marketing to help business owners seek funding, clients, or bring awareness to their brand, at a price conducive to a start-up or small business owners’ budget,” Delaney explained.

“What I like most about my business is the gratification I receive from the excitement on an up-and-coming business owner’s face when their vision is brought to life through production and, in that moment, they realize they are living their dream.”

 A TRUE PRO AT THIS --- A video production/producing career that spans nearly two decades --- 18 years to be exact --- Delaney emphasized that this company is available to various age groups, especially business owners who are seeking to bring awareness to their brand, thus devising ways to blend video production to market their business.

All of which, to his delight, makes what he does worth the tireless time and effort.

So get ready, Texas.

The entrepreneurship’s version of the Mile High Miracle is destined to have a Texas-sized impact.

Much sooner than later.

cxzz“There is nothing like being a part of helping someone live their dream,” Delaney said.

Interestingly enough, the assortment of vital services that Delaney’s company offers does not cater to a specific range of age groups, he said.

A video production/producing career that spans nearly two decades — 18 years to be exact — Delaney emphasized that this company is available to various age groups, especially business owners who are seeking to bring awareness to their brand, thus devising ways to blend video production to market their business.

“I have created production for the National Brother Hood Skiers (or NBS) to small mom and pop shops in the inner city,” Delaney explained. “I have worked with and created production for (an array of) celebrities, as well as production for non-profits wishing to seek sponsorship. This business has taken me to the furthermost edge of the Florida keys to the shores of Jamaica… the city lights of Las Vegas to the Hills of Puerto Rico.”

Make no mistake, Delaney isn’t bragging, in large part because, well, he’s a mastermind behind his business and this ever-so-competitive video production/producing industry.

“My personal mission is to give the small businesses just as much leverage to play equally with those major corporations who don’t do business with half of the passion these small business owners do,” Delaney said. “(I want to) give entrepreneurs one more tool to achieve their dreams. My struggle of trying to get support with previous business ventures is what inspired me to do this in this manner.”

fderToday, by all accounts, Delaney undoubtedly has found his niche with God, his Helper, leading the way.

Get ready Dallas/Fort Worth, where Delaney is destined to do things big in Texas.

Jason Stanford defies toughest of odds during imprisonment by writing six books, starting a booming DFW-area business

erDALLAS — In case you don’t know him, Jason Stanford would like to introduce himself.

A native of Columbus, Ohio, Stanford boasts a compelling past sports resume that is comprised largely of him having starred in football, basketball, and track and field at Bryan Adams High School. The former prep mulit-sports athlete subsequently walked on to play football at Texas Tech before a freak knee reduced his effectiveness.

Consequently, Stanford walked on to play football at Ohio State only to witness his collegiate stint cut short due to a separated shoulder injury, coupled with a heated dispute with then-Buckeye coach John Cooper in what Stanford described as his “paranoia about my father wanting to return to coaching and possibly interviewing for his job.”

The son of Rudy Hubbard, Stanford’s father is the former head football coach of Florida A&M University and is the only African-American head coach ever to win an NCAA Division I national championship.

lYears removed from what undoubtedly was a notable, well-publicized athletic career, Stanford was birthed with the gifts and talents of that of an aspiring author, a flourishing, dazzling craft that came full circle within the walls of a jail cell.

“My grandmother and great grandmother taught me how to read and write when I was a little boy in California,” Stanford told longtime journalist Andre Johnson earlier this week during an exclusive interview. “The first books they gave me (were entitled), ‘The Little Red Hen, The Five Chinese Brothers and The Velvetine Rabbit.’”

bhhAll things considered, Stanford never seemed to have disconnected from what appeared to be his newfound passion for writing.

How else to explain why even while being incarcerated for a lengthy period of time, his immense talents as an author only heighten in such a way that Stanford went to great lengths to ensure that his stories would be told and thrust upon the global platform.

While incarcerated unjustifiably for burglary — allegations that he attempted to illegally gain custody of his son — Stanford authored six novels while housed in solitary confinement.

Interesting enough, Stanford continued to deny an assortment of the odds of unjust legal system when he was charged with Gift to a Public Servant by the State of Texas as retaliation for what he summed up as his “whistle blower” efforts to report improprieties and violations of HIPAA at the Texas Department of Health and Human Services.

Consequently, the State of Texas was forced to drop the case, citing,among other things, that they had no evidence and later settled Stanford’s civil litigation of Malicious Prosecution.

“And the state finally dropped the case with prejudice because they stated that they didn’t have enough evidence to make the case,” Stanford explained.

csaqwweerrAccording to Stanford, who current resides in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, he was indicted by the State of Missouri for burglary in what officials deemed as illegal entry upon land to perform a parental kidnapping and assaults because of an assault upon grandfather, whom Stanford said had stabbed him.

JASON THE BUSINESSMAN: www.crystalclearwindowsdfw.com.

“The judge in my trial — Michael Manners — refused to allow defensive converse jury instructions that stated if the jury believed that I was there lawfully attempting to do what I was doing, then I should be acquitted,” Stanford explained.

uuuTo no avail, Stanford served the fullest extent of the five-year term, or roughly 40 months.

He was later paroled to Nashville, where he spent the next six months after being released from prison.

“The same orders and warrants that the other folks claimed were forged and no good were used to get custody of the child as they should have originally done,” Stanford acknowledged.  “Missouri does not have expungement laws or Conviction Integrity Units to redress wrongful convictions.”

Nevertheless, while being incarcerated, Stanford essentially made favorable use of his time, having composed the following books:

A Wedding Planned By Men

At All Costs

Man of the House, Inc.

Detours In Destiny

A Fool & His Money and,

His Fondest Dream

CALLED BY GOD --- “My grandmother and great grandmother taught me how to read and write when I was a little boy in California,” Stanford told longtime journalist earlier this week during an exclusive interview. “The first books they gave me (were entitled), ‘The Little Red Hen, The Five Chinese Brothers and The Velvetine Rabbit.’” All things considered, Stanford never seemed to have disconnected from what appeared to be his newfound passion for writing.

How else to explain why even while being incarcerated for a lengthy period of time, his immense talents as an author only heighten in such a way that Stanford went to great lengths to ensure that his stories would be told and thrust upon the global platform.

As Stanford explained, he was forced to smuggle his handwritten manuscripts out in letters “little by little,” all while compiling them back until he was officially released from prison.

Aside from having emerged as a professional, accomplished author, Stanford established Crystal Clear Windows DFW, or what he described as the “best window cleaning service in 10-county area of DFW.”

In addition, this former multi-sport athlete is responsible for having written several other books, most notably:

Assembly Required

Baby Daddy Privileges

More Than One Way

Meet Me In The Rain

Sweeping Up Hair

A Full-time Job

Imbalanced and,

Darwin in the Club.

“I write under two names of J. Stanford and Beauxoup,” Stanford said. “Novels written under Beauxoup penname have a more erotic foundation.

img_0824“I also wanted to incorporate and link why work in trying to advocate for a Conviction Integrity Unit to be established in Jackson County, Missouri prosecutor’s office,” Stanford continued. “I was able to petition to have both Daniel Franco and Roderick Williams disbarred from practice of law in Missouri.”

Aside from overcoming a slew of legal issues, Stanford has attracted solid support from http://www.innocenceproject. org,”.  Stanford has been a steady supporter and contributor to the efforts of the Exonerated Brothers of Texas. Since his return to Dallas, Stanford has sought to assist programs and organizations to help rebuild the lives of felons.  Stanford is a contributor to the efforts of MASS Inc., Mothers(Fathers) for the Advancement of Social Systems during which he worked diligently with Joyce Ann Brown — who wrongly served nine years in prison for a crime that she didn’t commit, later became an advocate for the wrongly convicted — her death at the age of 68 in June 2015.  Stanford is a drum major in the petition for the implementation of the Conviction Integrity Unit in Jackson County, Missouri  to join and sign the petition please click on this linkhttps://www.change.org/p/jean- peters-baker-to-implement-a- conviction-integrity-unit-and- a-innocence-commission-within- the-jackson-county-mo- prosecutors-office.

 

 

SUMMARY OF CONVICTION (As submitted by Jason Stanford)

When the court real Judge, Gail S. Tusan of the Superior Court of Fulton County heard the case, 2000CV18568 she immediately vacated all of the illegal orders of Linwood Slayton and proceded to hear the custody issue.  Judge Tusan assumed jurisdiction and awarded sole physical custody of the child to me and issued warrants and orders to attempt to force the state of Missouri law enforcement to assist in the recovery of the child.  The child’s mother appealed the Georgia orders and lost but illegally withheld custody of the child.  The state of Georgia issued warrants and orders requesting the arrest and extradiction of the mother for Illegal Interstate Interference with Custody.  Instead of doing what they are required by law, the lead detective of the juvenile unit of the Kansas City Missouri Police Department Lynda T. Hacker, Attorney Gabriel Domjan, Attorney Daniel Franco, Jackson County Assistant Prosecutor Terri Cipolla and Associate Circuit Court Judge Christine Sill-Rogers(lower authority than Lisa White-Hardwick) attempted to extort money from me by trying to illegally re-litigate the custody issue.

 

[Summary of why its so illegal]   Constitutionally and as Federal law  28 U.S.C.A. section 1738 clearly states that once one state assumes jurisdiction, no other states can.  And once the issue is finalized in one state, no other state can come back and do anything else while the original state retains jurisdiction.  Missouri adaptation of the law Section 452.0795 “Full Faith and Credit: A court of this state shall accord full faith and credit to an order made consistently with sections 452.700 to 452.930 which enforces a child custody determination by a court of another state unless the order has been vacated, stayed, or modified by a court authorized to do so under sections 452.740 to 452.845. There is a process called domestication where if you have an order from one state but need it enforced in another state, you must file authenticated copies of the order with that court and then they become just as valid in that state as they were in the state that issued them.  I did that and attached all the legal process from the Georgia court to case No. 00FC200903 in the Jackson County Circuit Court, with all my warrants and orders and the court and aforementioned people knew it and tried to ignore that whole process. Detective Hacker notified all uniform officers “not” to help me if I showed up and requested police assistance in gaining custody of my child with the Georgia orders.  So one day when my private investigators located the child and his mother I waited outside and called police.  They didn’t show up because they had a department wide memo not to go.  My son’s grandfather came outside his house and tried to kill me stabbing me with a filet knife.   I was not able to get the child.  The state of Missouri filed an indictment on me for burglary. Special Prosecutor lied to the arraignment judge stating that the case of custody was being litigated in the Missouri Court.  Detective Hacker gave multiple perjured statements at Stanford’s trial and she knew that the State’s allegations were false and legally improper.  What they said was it was illegal entry upon land to perform a parental kidnapping and assaults because I maced his grandfather while stabbing me.  The federal and state law expressly state that it is an automatic affirmative defense of parental kidnapping if the person has custody of the child.  At trial the state asked for a Motion In Limine that requested that none of the child custody information be discussed. The special prosecutor Patrick Miller lied in court and told the judge that the issue of custody was being litigated and decided in the Missouri court which is why it shouldn’t be mentioned because it is still being contested.  They made their case on lies and innuendo about me trying to illegally gain custody of a child.  The Missouri court was bound by state and federal law to give ‘full faith and credit’ to the Georgia orders.  They stated in open court that no orders existed.  The judge in my trial Michael Manners refused to allow defensive converse jury instructions that stated if the jury believed that I was there lawfully attempting to do what I was doing, then I should be acquitted.  I served the fullest extent of the five-year term.  40 months.  I paroled to Nashville, TN and six months after being released from prison, the same orders and warrants that Detective Hacker and other folks claimed were forged and no good were used to get custody of the child as they should have originally done. The improper case filed in attempts to re-litigate the issue of custody and thwart the Georgia orders, case 00FC209319 has been stricken from the Missouri casenet records yet I still retain the original copies of filings and docket sheets as evidence of the malfeasance   — Jason Stanford

Entrepreneur Dimitri Kennedy’s Houston-based ‘A Taste of Love, Romance Concierge’ helping couples spice up their love life

aDALLAS — The final quarter of any calendar year can be downright exhausting, stressful, and overwhelming for many individuals, most notably married couples.

No one, it seems, is aware of that more than Dimitri Le’Shan Kennedy.

“My competitive drive (through sports) didn’t propel me to start my business,” Kennedy, a former high-recruited track and field and basketball standout, told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during a recent interview. “It was my passion for romance and helping couples get through the rough seasons that propelled me to start my business.”

nnnnThe business venture about which Kennedy is alluding is A Taste of Love: Romance Concierge which, as she explains rather vividly, is a romantic-oriented event planning and romance concierge company.

As Kennedy, 44, tells it, her intriguing, provocative business is geared in large part toward planning and implementing romantic experiences, most notably from “cozy and intimate affairs” to a large production, depending on her clients’ taste.

Oh my!

TEAM KENNEDY --- Having garnered a plethora awards and honors and stellar prep dual sport athlete, Kennedy, who runs her newly-erected business with the solid support of her husband, Roderick Kennedy, was recruited by two junior colleges to play basketball. A native of Lufkin, Texas but was raised in nearby Livingston under the care of her grandmother in the Livingston Housing Authority with the help of the community, today, Kennedy is successfully carrying out her long-awaited passion of helping couples to…you know…score big in the bedroom.

“We customize romantic packages to accommodate all budgets,” Kennedy said. “We seek to create, develop, and rekindle the love, intimacy, and romance in the relationship.”

Now that the Fall season is officially upon us, what better time for hard-working, occasionally-stressed and overwhelmingly fatigue couples to spark and revitalize their love life than by consulting Kennedy whom, given the immense strides she’s made since starting her business in August, has undoubtedly proven to be the go-to person, of sorts, particularly as it pertains to romance and ways to spice of one’s love life.

Oh my!

“I love seeing and hearing about the couples positive experiences and how following steps or a plan that I mapped out rekindled that spark or ignited the flame that was already lit,” said Kennedy, who has been aiding couples by way of this unique, unorthodox form of romance for the past decade or so.

Like most entrepreneurs, there is a mission about which Kennedy has adopted with regards to persuading consumers to buy into and embrace the business for which God has divinely purposed her to execute.

v“My personal mission is to put passion, desire, intimacy, and communication back where it belongs in a loving relationship,” said Kennedy, adding that her newly-established ventures caters mostly to people ranging from ages 24-and-up.

DYNAMIC DETHA --- “My competitive drive (through sports) didn't propel me to start my business,” Kennedy, a former high-recruited track and field and basketball standout, told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during a recent interview. “It was my passion for romance and helping couples get through the rough seasons that propelled me to start my business.” The business venture about which Kennedy is alluding is A Taste of Love: Romance Concierge which, as she explains rather vividly, is a romantic-oriented event planning and romance concierge company.

This especially rings true amongst church folk, or those spiritual beings who sense that romance is not of God or has no place in the Body of Christ.

Of course it, as we are specifically reminded according to the Book of Songs of Solomon — and through Kennedy’s A Taste of Love: Romance Concierge.

“Everyone deserves to be loved and to show love through good and bad times,” Kennedy said. “Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can mean the world to a person. A kind gesture, an ‘I love you,’ a ‘You make my heart pound,’ a ‘When I look at you, I fall in love with you all over again.’”

How clever for an ex-track and field and hoops star who was heavily recruited to run track by a slew of major colleges, most notably the University of Houston, Rice University, the University of Virginia, Florida A&M, Prairie View A&M, LSU, University of Texas-Pan America, among others.

Memphis businesswoman Teka Doggett’s Teka’s Cookies sending the social media world into a massive sweet tooth frenzy

wThere’s no other way to put it.

Teka Doggett’s reputation is such that she is a self-proclaimed risk taker.

To her credit, she doesn’t seem to care who don’t like it.

rr“Being in an extracurricular activity helps with taking a risk in doing your best and being judged afterwards,” Doggett told longtime journalist Andre Johnson earlier this week during an exclusive interview. “Which reminds me of (my past) competition or being in jamboree.”

dDoggett is alluding in large part to her encounter as a junior high and high school majorette. It is, in fact, because of her competitive drive during regular jamboree competitions that has greatly fueled her lofty aspirations of delving off into entrepreneurship.

Given the immense strides she’s made in recent years, it’s safe to assume that Doggett is well on her way to evolving as a fixture amongst black businesses in the historic Memphis metropolitan and the surrounding areas.

A 35-year native Memphian and Hamilton High graduate, Doggett is owner of Teka’s Cookies, an up-and-coming venture that, earlier this week, sent her fellow social media account holders into a frenzy upon discovering her assortment of tasty, mouth-watering treats.

“Them cookies were so good…OMG….Yep, I’m placing another order soon,” wrote Memphis customer Demetric LaVette on Doggett’s Facebook timeline in the aftermath of savoring her baking products.

ew“Eating a cookie. Teka’s Cookies were gone within five minutes,” wrote Nykia White on Doggett’s page.

“Girl, I need some of these,” wrote Daisy Monroe in a post on Doggett’s timeline.

iuyAnd just like, the hoopla and rave reviews surrounding Teka’s Cookies continued to blanket Doggett’s timeline, thus gave way to a plethora of prospective customers craving for refreshments they sensed would complement their sweet tooth temperament.

544“My personal mission…I really don’t have one,” Doggett, who’s also a Mid-South-area licensed cosmetologist, said of having established her cookie business. “But I do, however, have God’s mission to fulfill, because that’s where my inspiration came from.”

All things considering, Doggett hinted at the notion that her vision for birthing Teka’s Cookies started with a dream, of sorts.

Well, kind of.

p“I  literally dreamed this idea,” Doggett explained. “I woke up and said out loud, ‘God you have jokes. How am I going to come up with all those flavors?’”

Fortunately for her, her Creator gave her the answer she diligently sought, thus provided her with detailed instructions as well as a slew of baking recipes.

Well, kind of.

“Needless to say, I got my answer even though I had to use family and friends as my guinea pigs while I perfect my recipes,” Doggett said with smile. “Sorry guys.”

And the rest, as they say, was history.

uA little more than 10 months removed from having made her baking repertoire public, Teka’s Cookies seem to have not only caught the social media by world by storm, but earlier this week, a prospective customer in Texas discovered her products on her Facebook page, then inquired about placing Christmas orders.

Make no mistake. Like her or not.

But homegirl, it seems, is about to blow up, in large part because her baking products can be shipped anywhere throughout the United States.

“I’ve been baking since I was a kid,” said Doggett, who very much appears as if she’s in her early 20s. “(Since my) Easy Baker oven days (LOL). I introduced my cookies to the public in December 2015 on my birthday.”

To her credit, she’s been nothing short of impression — this after God showed her that He wasn’t merely joking.

Well, kind of.

“Actually, this is imperative to me, because I like to show others when you obey God, the results are unimaginable,” Doggett said.

And there’s no other way to put it.

Dallas/Fort Worth-area business owner Don Scott becoming a true pro in the custom satellite and television installation industry

img_1409DALLAS — No one has to tell or pump Don R. Scott up to count his blessings.

Given all about which he’s gone through over the years, given how he’s managed to persevere and cling to unwavering faith when critics and naysayers had written him off, given how he’s steadfastly defied all odds, thus cleared those seemingly insurmountable hurdles throughout the years, one would become thoroughly enlightened as to why Scott deems it necessary to pay homage to his Creator.

Every single chance he gets.

img_1419“It is my passion to leave a trail blazing (legacy behind) so hot that all who are graced to (experience it), they will be immediately be impacted by it because it will reveal to  you the power of God in all of His glory,” Scott told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during a recent interview.

img_1420By and large, to grasp a deeper, in-depth understanding of why Scott thinks it essential to honor God in all he does, look no further than the assortment of trials and hardships and adversities he’s managed to overcome, most notably over the past decade-and-a-half.

img_1415For starters, Scott’s reputation is such that he’s one who’s destined to exercise his faith in such a way that those with whom he crosses paths will subsequently know that he’s had a personal encounter with Almighty God. Most importantly, in speaking with him, in witnessing and hearing how eloquently he alludes to being a devoted father and newly-wed husband, one would essentially be hard-pressed to realize that Scott once served 16 years in prison, considering he customarily exemplifies love compassion the way God’s law admonishes us to.

FOLLOW DON VIA SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.facebook.com/don.scott.1481.

All things considered, Scott has managed to defy and conquer the greatest of odds and, to his credit, many of his peers are starting to notice and embrace and celebrate his relentless pursuit of happiness.

Today, unlike never before, Scott — whom recently celebrated two years of marriage to his wife, Rosekisha G. Scott — is living and basking and dwelling in God’s glory as a booming, progressive Dallas/Fort Worth-area business owner, a much-anticipated milestone that essentially has provided him with a new lease on life.

Don Scott is owner and chief operating officer of Don’s Custom Satellite And Television Installation, an up-and-coming company that was founded on the basis of providing a favorable affordable customer service experience to clients across the massive Metroplex and throughout the heartland region of the country.

“I believe that with the combination of technology and installation expertise, any custom television experience that a customer wishes can be achieved,” Scott explained.

img_1414In addition, Don’s Custom Satellite And Television Installation will perform installation maneuvers that most “big box “service technicians are prohibited from performing,” Scott said.

You name it. He got you. He can do it.

Or, at least he’ll try.

Scott, in fact, is one who can do it all — everything from installing from a roof, ceiling and entry points, he said.

“All work done by Don’s Custom Satellite And Television Installation is 100 percent guaranteed,” Scott said.

More than anything, Scott emphasized, happy clients are key and his company’s No. 1 priority.

ONE CLASS ACT --- Today, unlike never before, Dallas-area business owner Don Scott --- whom recently celebrated two years of marriage to his wife, Rosekisha G. Scott --- is living and basking and dwelling in God’s glory as a booming, progressive Dallas/Fort Worth-area business owner, a much-anticipated milestone that essentially has provided him with a new lease on life.

“If, by any chance, there is an issue on our installation, we will respond promptly and free of charge,” Scott said. “From scheduling to post installation education, Don’s Custom Satellite And Television Installation takes the hassle completely out of the experience.”

Having been in operations since June 2016, Scott’s business was established in nearby Irving, Texas, a venture that also provides DirecTV installation as well as custom satellite television mounting, wiring and setup.

Simply put, Scott undoubtedly knows his professional craft because, well, he’s a mastermind as it pertains to modern technology.

In addition to his new business, Scott is a trainer for MasTec Advanced Technologies, a Dallas-based industry that affords him with the golden opportunities to train other aspiring technicians in his chosen industry.

“It is my passion to leave a trail blazing (legacy behind) so hot that all who are graced to (experience it), they will be immediately be impacted by it because it will reveal to  you the power of God in all of His glory,” Scott said once again.

To his credit, he’s certainly seems on track to doing just that.

Philadelphia-based entrepreneur/author DaVita Garfield defying all odds, savoring success through new book and business

qqqDaVita Gayle Garfield once played competitive football.

Yep, you read that correctly.

Armed with an outrageously wealth of beauty, Garfield on Wednesday recalled how she was a member of the Philadelphia Sports And Social Club League in 2008, which afforded her to play co-ed recreational and competitive touch football for approximately six years until her health had begun to reduce her effectiveness.

 DEFYING THE ODDS -- Garfield is founder and chief executive officer of EmpowermentNow, LLC, an organization she established in March 2015 to provide coaching and consulting services to women, as well as assists them in identifying and devising a strategic plan to fulfill their life goals, particularly in areas of personal development and their respective career.

“When I started playing football, I discovered my extremely competitive nature very quickly,” Garfield told longtime journalist Andre Johnson. “I have an obsession for mastering anything I put my time to, so I spent a lot of time learning and understanding the game mentally and physically.”

ddd

To her credit, Garfield — beauty and all — had become a fixture while engaging in recreational sports for an extended period of time, having gone to great lengths to become a catalyst in the social club league until disaster struck and ultimately left her young life hanging in the balance.

Hampered by what doctors described as an “unexplained medical crisis” in 2012, Garfield literally was left fighting for her life as she battled through stress, depression, frustration and, according to her, periodic stretches of anger.

How could this possibly happen?

What exactly did this dynamically beautiful mother of one do that gave way to her suddenly witnessing her young life take a tear-jerking, disheartening twist?

Nothing, actually.

A WALKING MIRACLE: To her credit, Philadelphia native DaVita Garfield --- beauty and all --- had become a fixture while engaging in recreational sports for an extended period of time, having gone to great lengths to become a catalyst in the social club league until disaster struck and ultimately left her young life hanging in the balance.

A WALKING MIRACLE: To her credit, Philadelphia native DaVita Garfield — beauty and all — had become a fixture while engaging in recreational sports for an extended period of time, having gone to great lengths to become a catalyst in the social club league until disaster struck and ultimately left her young life hanging in the balance.
Hampered by what doctors described as an “unexplained medical crisis” in 2012, Garfield literally was left fighting for her life as she battled through stress, depression, frustration and, according to her, periodic stretches of anger.

Like many of her peers, Garfield was one who was steadfastly savoring and embracing life, as precious and as fragile as it is.

But what she would soon discover was that God was strategically positioning and equipping her for her divine purpose, a purpose about which she would fulfill by way of clearing arguably the greatest hurdle of her life.

In a rather dauntless effort to “renew her life,” Garfield’s reputation is such that she is one who’s accustomed to defying odds and fending off satan’s customary attacks.

With her young life all but hanging in the balance some two years ago, there she was, fighting the good fight of faith.

Once again.

mmmmmHaving undergone hours of surgery for her sudden, life-changing diagnosis of a rare and life-threatening disease known as Cushing’s Disease, doctors discovered a tumor on Garfield’s pituitary gland, an occurrence that eventually prompted her to become more enlightened about her illness.

CHECK OUT THIS FOOTAGE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LjjmwqqNcBg.

As Garfield tells it, her faith and determination to become healthy, thus recapture a peace of mind, had become even stronger in the process.

vvvAhhhh…the dreaded process. As gruesome and emotional and scary as it seemed upon her diagnosis, Garfield — even while enduring arguably the fight of her life — pressed and navigated her way through the process like the big-hearted, resilient champion she is.

Vowing to never give up on life, she still admittedly wanted answers for what all had transpired in a life that was filled with much promise.

Consequently, in 2014, the tumor was successfully removed and, to this very day, Garfield remains in remission, favorable health, high spirits, all of which have greatly enabled her to shift her focus where it belongs — on living her best life on purpose, she says, all while displaying her customary beautiful smile.

Today, unlike never before, Garfield has appropriately embraced her new lease on life by way of emerging as a thriving author, motivational speaker, and progressive entrepreneur.

tttGarfield is founder and chief executive officer of EmpowermentNow, LLC, an organization she established in March 2015 to provide coaching and consulting services to women, as well as assists them in identifying and devising a strategic plan to fulfill their life goals, particularly in areas of personal development and their respective career.

“I believe that I was purposed with allowing my testimony to be used to help inspire others so I have to share it no matter what,” Garfield explained. “I believe that our experiences were not designed just for us to keep our triumphs and successes to ourselves.”

In addition to erecting what is shaping up to become a flourishing business venture, Garfield has been afforded to savor her newest endeavor with the much-anticipated publishing and release of her first book entitled, “Tell the Whole Story: Embrace Your Journey to Become Amazing on Purpose.”

“My journey to become unstuck and finally embrace my own story has allowed me to walk into the greatness God has planned for my life,” Garfield said of making her authorship debut. “This experience has purposed me to encourage others to embrace their own journey.”

In addition, “Tell the Whole Story,” Garfield said, is an informative guide that will start her readers on the path to:

♦ Acknowledge your experiences

♦ Accept the role such experiences have played in shaping who you are today

♦ Release the guilt, shame or pain.

♦ Embrace the journey as a whole and,

♦ Appreciate your greatness today and your greatness yet to come.

zzzz“In Tell the Whole Story, I am very transparent about my personal experiences as it relates to each area of embracing my journey,” said Garfield, adding that her primary role is being a mother to her amazing 12-year-old daughter, Aniah Rose. “I share my failures, my bad decisions, my tragedies, as well as my fight to overcome many odds and obstacles from childhood molestation, feeling of abandonment as a child, my battle with adult depression, diagnosis of a rare life-threatening disease, and ultimately a brain tumor. Learning how to embrace every one of my experiences and share my testimony is how I learned to be successful on purpose and encourage others to do the same.”

In the meantime, Garfield emphasized that she is currently promoting and speaking about her new book on various platforms and working on the launching of a live workshop called, “Embrace The Journey, Heal the Pain.”

“It is centered on the commitment to do the work…to heal from the pain of our experiences and truly do the work to embrace our journey to be the best version of ourselves,” Garfield said.

ORDAINED BY GOD --- “In Tell the Whole Story, I am very transparent about my personal experiences as it relates to each area of embracing my journey,” said Garfield, adding that her primary role is being a mother to her amazing 12-year-old daughter, Aniah Rose. “I share my failures, my bad decisions, my tragedies, as well as my fight to overcome many odds and obstacles from childhood molestation, feeling of abandonment as a child, my battle with adult depression, diagnosis of a rare life-threatening disease, and ultimately a brain tumor.

Once a thriving Corporate America success, Kindria Hawkins-Simpson emerges as a flourishing, well-known DFW entrepreneur

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

 

DALLAS — For Kindria R. Hawkins-Simpson, arguably her life’s grandest, God-mandated encounter had suddenly taken on a rather unanticipated detour earlier this year.

aa“I had a dream and woke up with an unexplained joy,” Hawkins-Simpson told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during an exclusive interview Tuesday afternoon. “Go back and reinstate my cosmetology license.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

Once a veteran Corporate America professional who, during her illustrious, notable career, had evolved mightily as one of the most respected and beloved personalities in her industry, Hawkins-Simpson subsequently deemed it essential to reconnect with one of her greatest, most sought-after passions, one whereby she would greatly enhance and help revitalize the overall appearance of people from various walks of life.

Today, unlike never before, this 41-year-old Tulsa, Oklahoma native has witnessed her long-awaited dream come full circle by way of the much-anticipated birthing of a new chapter, one that has appropriately landed her in the world of entrepreneurship.

An accomplished Certified Hair Health and Hair Loss Practitioner, Hawkins-Simpson is owner and chief executive officer of Rekindle Hair Restoration Solutions.

WHAT ABOUT KINDRIA: https://www.styleseat.com/m/book/v/kindriahawkins.

Located at 305 River Fern Avenue, Suite 1124 in nearby Garland, Texas, Hair Restoration Solutions offer a variety of innovative hair care solutions, most notably the overall health of hair, scalp disorders, and hair loss, among other entities.

“As a Hair Loss Practitioner, I am a specialist in the health of hair, scalp disorders and hair loss,” Hawkins-Simpson said. “I’ve trained in the health of the hair and to look for and identify hair loss problems in a holistic way i.e. genetics, scalp disorder, chemical damage and styling habits, just to name a few. After an extensive consultation, I will be able to offer a customized all-natural individual treatment plan, give nutritional advice and recommend lifestyle changes to improve the health and appearance of the hair.”

“If you’ve fallen out of love with your hair for any reason, come see me,” Hawkins-Simpson emphasizes at http://www.salonsatbellasuites.com/. “I work miracles with all types of hair. My skills range from hard-to-manage hair to color corrections. I look forward to restoring your hair to the soft, shiny condition you once loved.”

In addition, consumers from various parts of the country have thoroughly embraced Hawkins-Simpson’s hands-on approach as a booming, thriving Hair Loss Practitioner.

ooooSaid one client in a July 2016 review at https://www.styleseat.com/m/book/v/kindriahawkins: “Kindria is the most professional stylist that I’ve ever let cut my hair. In addition, you can tell she really appreciates and cares for her clients. From the initial consultation to the new client kit that I received after my first visit, I could tell she was different from what I’ve been used too. Just this past weekend, Kindria had a “Client Appreciation Party.” Really!!!! Now how do you think that makes me feel…. APPRECIATED!!!!”

And then there’s another client: “OMG! I was so happy to finally have someone seriously listen to ME, exam my hair and scalp, then DISCUSS WITH ME about its condition and how we were going to treat it. I loved that she actually showed me on her computer my scalp and hair follicles, and explained to me all possible reasons for my condition and how to restore it back to health. She was patient and thorough, and let me ask all the questions I wanted, which I really and truly appreciated. She was so friendly, down to earth, made me feel at ease throughout the entire process. I was extremely impressed with her knowledge of hair and that she had created her own hair products that are tailored to the customer – WOW! Not to mention how wonderful it felt on my scalp and smelled in my hair long after my treatment. Also!!! she didn’t take offense when I told her how I didn’t like my hair styled, nor did she try to convince me to go with what she wanted to do!! I can manage my own hair and style it to where I feel comfortable; and I’ve gotten allot of compliments. Kindria is great and you will truly and completely like her. I can’t wait to go back and then show my sisters!”

And there’s this one: “I just left my consultation and OMG!!! My dermatologist didn’t do half of what Mrs. Kindria did today!!!!! Thank you and see you again soon!”

Yes, there’s another gratified client: “If you want someone that’s a cut above the rest, go see Kindria. You won’t be disappointed….”

By and large, Hawkins-Simpson said amongst the biggest reasons she was inspired to return to what she describes as the “beauty industry” is that she, along with others with whom she has crossed paths had endured various forms of hair loss.

Given her immense knowledge and passion in this ever-so-evolving industry, she sensed the time had finally come that she put her remarkable skills on display.

Backed up by that life-changing dream, of course.

“Since coming back to the beauty industry, the one consistent thing I noticed is a significant number of people, including myself, suffering from various forms of hair loss,” Hawkins-Simpson explained. “Concerned with my own hair loss as well as my clients, I began educating myself on hair loss and regrowth solutions.”

To her credit, that ultimately gave way to Hawkins-Simpson having obtained a full fledge certification as a Hair Loss Specialist Certification (HLSC) and Hair Loss Practitioner Certification (HLPC), as well as having garnered national accreditation from the American Medical Certification Association (AMCA).

Talk about a massive, favorable career change for a former Corporate America professional whom, since bolting her rewarding job, has been nothing short of impressive since the night of that career-inspiring, tear-jerking dream.

Come October 30, Hawkins-Simpson and her staff will hold an event called “Sip and Rekindle” at the Meridian Business Center located at 6060 North Central Expressway, Suite 500 in Dallas.

During this event, she will provide attendees with private A scalp scope and hair analysis, a vitamin deficiency Scan A customized solution for their hair, scalp, and body, as well as all-natural customized products available for purchase.

FOLLOW KINDRIA VIA SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.facebook.com/rekindlehairrrestoration/?fref=ts.

In addition, there will be door prizes and raffle gifts that will include 25 percent off Rekindles’ Hair Health Services, a Laser Hair Growth Comb, Rekindle all-natural customized products and much, much more.

The price for this session is $35.

A current resident of the Dallas/Fort Worth area, Hawkins-Simpson earned a Bachelor’s in Business Administration and began a successful career as Regional Human Resources Director.

GOD'S VERY OWN -- “I had a dream and woke up with an unexplained joy,” Hawkins-Simpson told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during an exclusive interview Tuesday afternoon. “Go back and reinstate my cosmetology license.” The rest, as they say, was history. Once a veteran Corporate America professional who, during her illustrious stint, had evolved mightily as one of the most respected and beloved personalities in her industry, Hawkins-Simpson subsequently deemed it essential to reconnect with one of greatest, most sought-after passions, one whereby she would greatly enhance and help revitalize the overall appearance of people from various walks of life.

Consequently, she sensed a career change was in order.

“After 17 years in Corporate America, I hit a crossroad and started questioning my destiny,” Hawkins-Simpson said. “I had a dream and woke up with an unexplained joy. I have come full circle and back to doing what I love.”

The rest, as they say, was history.

Roslyn Boyd’s Dallas-based BasketsAsGifts and event planning ventures becoming fixtures in Texas and other 49 states

ppppDALLAS — It’s nothing for Roslyn Renee Boyd to strike up a captivating conversation about her husband, Devon Terrance Boyd.

In fact, when doing so, you can just about witness her put on display her customary smile.

Described as her “high school sweetheart,” Boyd said it was because of her husband’s inspiring input and guidance that greatly enabled her to delve off into entrepreneurship a couple of years ago.

She has since been nothing short of impressive.

rrrtttA Newark, New Jersey native who has been a resident of the Dallas/Fort Worth area for the past 11 years, Boyd is owner and chief operating officer of BasketsAsGifts/Party In A Box All Around Event Planner, an up-and-coming venture by which she’s appropriately adopted the catchphrase, “Don’t Be Late Trying To Decorate…BasketsAsGifts Can Set Your Party Straight.”

uuuuiii“My inspiration was from my high school sweetheart and loving husband when he was a football player and coach,” Boyd told longtime journalist Andre Johnson during a recent interview. “He always strived for excellence on the field. He let nothing stop him from making that touchdown and encouraging others that followed him to do the same.”

As Boyd tells it, her business has been scoring figurative touchdowns, of sorts, since its inception, in large part because although it mirrors others similar to it, it has assumed its own unorthodox twisted.

CHECK OUT ROSLYN’S BUSINESS VIA SOCIAL MEDIA: https://www.facebook.com/baskets.asgifts?fref=ts.

Come Sunday, October 16, her business’ official grand opening will take place from 2-4 p.m. at the West Irving Improvement Association located at 3901 Jackson Street.

“My business is unique and unlike no other,” Boyd said.

ooooFor starters, BasketsAsGifts was established in nearby Irving, Texas in 2007 as what Boyd described as a “passion,” particularly as it relates to providing others with gifts that ultimately gave way to smiles, all while she did not expect anything in return, she said.

“I did this ongoing for four years until God spoke vividly, ‘Your passion is your financial blessing,’” Boyd said.

It wasn’t long thereafter that Boyd and her biggest supporters sensed the time had come that she reap the benefits of her labor, sensed the time had finally come that she enjoys the fruits of her labor through the gifts by which God has blessed her.

She has since been nothing short of impressive.

yyyAmongst the reasons is that BasketsAsGifts creates what Boyd labels as original, one-of-a-kind baskets and chocolates for an assortment of occasions — from birthdays, to holidays, vote of thanks and well wishes, as well as other special occasions.

As for the events planning portion of her business, Boyd emphasized that Party In A Box routinely makes personal appearances in which she will hosts parties from what she deems “straight from a box.”

There, consumers would be allowed to choose from an a variety of party packages, most notably basic, silver, gold, and platinum.

Described as her “high school sweetheart,” Boyd said it was because of her husband’s inspiring input and guidance that greatly enabled her to delve off into entrepreneurship a couple of years ago.

“My inspiration and praise are first to God for giving me the ability to create and use my talents for His will and His purpose,” Boyd said. “Then my husband…he’s had a lot of setbacks and disappointments, but never gave up and kept pushing. My mom was a single parent, raising two girls alone, but she never gave up on making nothing out of something.”

That, after all, explains why Boyd realizes unlike never before where her inspiration comes from.

Fortunately for her, she has since been nothing short of impressive.

Thanks in large part to her high school sweetheart.
