National Association of Black Journalists Invites Dr. Kela Henry to Author Showcase at Miami Convention and Career Fair

#NABJ features NIA & THE NUMBERS GAME, A Teenager's Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex by Dr. Kela Henry at this year's premier gathering from August 7-11

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 25, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Press Announcement from KeyMedia Public Relations
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dr. Kela Henry (aka Dr. Kela) and her debut book “Nia & The Numbers Game: A Teenagers Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex” are going to the NABJ19 Authors Showcase. This year the panel had dozens of entries of outstanding books to pick from, and “Nia & The Numbers Game” was among them. The books were judged by a team of experienced NABJ members on compelling subject matter, writing style, relevance and uniqueness. This year’s theme is Fight The Power: Press Forward with Passion and Purpose.

Released on BTH Creations LLC, a new imprint started by Dr. Kela, “Nia & The Numbers Game: A Teenagers Guide to Education, Relationships & Sex” is part novel, part self-help guide, and aims to teach teenage girls about decision-making. Growing up is a confusing, and often lonely experience. Shining a much-needed light into this darkness is Nia (Swahili for purpose), whose journey to adulthood is fraught with all the struggles of adolescence. Readers follow Nia, a typical African American girl, on her life’s journey. Nia’s troubles with her divorced and rule-oriented parents, her entrance into puberty, her relationships with both friends and boyfriends, and her academic ambitions are a lens through which readers can understand their own personal development. From changes in her body, to the joy of first love, to the pressures to have sex and on top of all that, applying to college, the book explains to readers how everyday choices directly impacts one’s future. Although Nia makes mistakes along the way, Dr. Henry stresses the importance in how Nia considers and thinks about her actions rather than acting impulsively.

The 2019 NABJ Annual Convention & Career Fair is the premier venue for journalism education, career development and networking opportunity that draws leaders in journalism, media, technology, business, arts and entertainment. Over 3,000 of the nation’s top journalists, media executives, public relations professionals and students will gather in Miami, beginning August 7-11.

Big Idea Launchpad Helps Women Entrepreneurs Unleash their Business Potential

Denise Mortimer

My clients get to reap the benefits of my own trial-and-error and accumulation of best practices from the past three years to improve their income and catapult growth”

— Denise Mortimer

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Women entrepreneurs in the services-related field now have access to a tool that can help them start or jumpstart their business by helping them identify their competitive advantage. The Big Idea Launchpad provides step-by-step guidance to start-ups and those that have been in operation two years or less via group or one-to-one sessions. It provides a framework for business growth and is a result of three years of intensive research that was then applied to the founder’s own business as a case study.

Denise Mortimer is the brains behind the program. Nearly three years ago, at age 50, she founded Fearless Enterprises after stepping away from her corporate job to pursue her entrepreneurial dreams. The company is an online business and professional development coaching organization that caters to women who want to start or have recently launched a business.

Mortimer says that her clients are often those who have marketable talents but have spent most of their lives doing for others and put themselves last. She helps them break out of limiting thinking while teaching business development skills to support their success.

“Women – especially those of us of a certain age – are needed in the entrepreneurial work space. In the UK, only one third of new businesses are started by women and that needs to change,” said Mortimer during recent interviews on Business Innovators radio and in Small Business Trendsetters magazine.

Mortimer is a walking example of how well her strategy works. In the short time since she started Fearless Enterprises, she has developed a reputation as an industry innovator with an enviable record of accomplishments. She is a noted NLP master coach, positive psychologist, speaker and author with a trail of satisfied clients to her credit.

“With the new Big Idea Launchpad program in particular, my clients get to reap the benefits of my own trial-and-error and accumulation of best practices from the past three years to improve their income and catapult growth,” Mortimer explained. “I have a skill for helping them identify what truly sets them apart from the competition then I teach them how to market that to attract customers.”

“I spent 23 years in the public sector because I was so unsure of how to run a business. When I finally took the leap, there was no stopping me! My biggest goal is to help women turn from dreamers to doers and to know that there is no right time to take the risk, you just have to put one foot in front of the other,” she added. “The monetary rewards are wonderful but it’s the personal satisfaction that is priceless.”

Speaker, Author and Coach Samantha Ruth to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Samantha M Ruth is an inspiring professional. She has Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in Psychology, which she obtained while living in Michigan. She is a licensed Psychologist in both Michigan and Colorado, where she currently lives. She practices in a way that is beyond therapy—it’s unique and revolutionary, and focused on concepts like overcoming adversity and being your true self (not what family or society expects of you).

Samantha sees people as whole and beautiful, not sick or damaged, and supports them like an ally and coach. She guides clients with more than 20 years of professional experience, along with the experiences of her own life (which often brought challenges and change.) Samantha weaves in the philosophies of famed success coach Jack Canfield, and has had numerous training and speaking sessions with him. Her practices evolved in a way that is so holistic, transformational and distinct, that the only label that could be applied is: The Ruthology Method.

“I think of my mission like the Japanese art of Kintsukuroi,” Samantha says, “It’s a technique that repairs objects like vases with a special gold lacquer, so that the result is even more breathtaking. Samantha actually does that as she coaches people toward meeting new goals, and living with greater stability, happiness and success.

Samantha continues to apprentice with Jack Canfield and co-authored a book with Kate Butler from his inner circle. Part five of the series Women Who Illuminate will be out in August, and Samantha has two books of her own slated for 2020 release. She very much loves to write and use journals, both with clients and for her own self-healing.

Samantha sure is ambitious. She just launched a new online support group, in which a small group of people will deal with their anxiety and related issues. And she created a non-profit foundation, Whole Lotta Love, to honor her husband James Lincoln Ruth. We applaud Samantha for achieving all this and more, and we look forward to talking about it together.

CUTV News Radio will feature Samantha Ruth in interviews with Jim Masters on Wednesdays on June 26th, July 10th and July 17th at 2:00pm EDT

Best-Selling Documentary – The Long Goodbye: The Kara Tippetts Story – Launches on Netflix

Kara Tippetts and The Long Goodbye

The Long Goodbye shares the heartfelt, hope-filled story of a young woman thrust into the national spotlight after a terminal cancer diagnosis

I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.”

— Ann Voskamp

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, June 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — THE LONG GOODBYE: The Kara Tippetts Story, a heartfelt story a woman thrust into the national spotlight through a terminal cancer diagnosis, is available now on Netflix. The film spent time at the #1 spot on the Amazon Documentaries chart and remained in the Top 10 for over 6 weeks after it’s release.

Kara Tippetts was a pastor’s wife, mother of four young children, and creator of a popular mommy-blog focused on parenting with kindness. Kara already had a loyal following when, at just 38 years old, she began facing and processing a cancer diagnosis on the site. Her blog and subsequent best-selling books became hallowed ground as people around the world were touched by her faith, honesty, and candor.

With this incredibly raw documentary, Kara allowed the world to walk with her as she chronicled first what it meant to be a young wife and mother battling a disease, and then ultimately what it meant to live and die with love and dignity.

Shot in real-time and featuring Kara’s own vlogs and cell phone videos, this film offers an intimate, vulnerable look into a dying woman’s last days. The film also features Kara’s friends-including Ann Voskamp, Joanna Gaines, Ellie Holcomb, President of Focus on the Family Jim Daly, Dianne Derby from KKTV, and bonus features with Joni Eareckson Tada.

During her journey with cancer, Kara wrote and published three books, including Just Show Up: The Dance of Walking Through Suffering Together; And It was Beautiful: Celebrating Life in the Midst of the Long Good-Bye; and The Hardest Peace: Expecting Grace in the Midst of Life’s Hard, which won the 2015 ECPA Inspirational Book of the Year award.

Additionally, Kara was thrust into the spotlight when a letter she penned to Brittany Maynard went viral. In the letter, Kara asked Brittany to reconsider her choice to move to Oregon to participate in an assisted suicide. Kara’s was a gentle, hope-filled message that could only be shared between two young women whose lives would end too soon.

Kara’s vulnerability had an incredible impact on tens of thousands of people and grew that community of support in surprising ways. Faith influencers from around the globe began to find ways to assist Kara by sharing her posts, sending personal messages, serving the family’s needs, as well as just becoming her friend.

When asked about Kara’s impact, influencers featured in the film stated:

“The impact of her life was huge. I’m blessed to know her.” – Joanna Gaines

“I want more of what Kara Tippetts had.” – Ann Voskamp,

“Sharing this time with her family was nothing short of a holy experience.” – Sofia Lyons, filmmaker.

“I think Kara and I both understand that deep suffering stretches the capacity of the soul.” – Joni Eareckson Tada

This included filmmakers Jay and Sofia Lyons, who discovered Kara’s story through a Facebook note from a friend. The couple simply felt led to do something for her. Sofia states how God led them down a path to create the film by a series of ‘breadcrumbs’, “First, we just wanted to do something special for Kara and her family. This evolved into creating a 7-minute video about her life, which ultimately opened up a conversation about fully documenting her last few months on earth.”

THE LONG GOODBYE also showcases footage from a house concert performed by Ellie Holcomb, a new arrangement of one of Kara’s favorite hymns by Selah, and an original song by Travis Cottrell. Additionally, one of the filmmakers, Sofia J., contributes 2 original songs written for the film including “I’ll See You Again.”

Fallon Ward Releases, Happy Harry Gets His First Haircut

Happy Harry Gets His First Haircut by Fallon Ward

Happy Harry Gets His First Haircut by Fallon Ward

Book set to take its place in barbershops, nationwide

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 23, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Fallon Ward is set to make the barbershop experience for children a more enjoyable one, her publicist announced today. The South Carolina author recently released her new book. “Happy Harry Gets His First Haircut,” is available now at Amazon and selective book stores.

Ward says the children’s book is based on the true story of her son’s first haircut. She wrote it in hopes that it would offer a therapeutic moment of comfort prior to, or during a child’s first trip to a barbershop.

When asked what her inspiration was for writing this book, the author stated that “I've never seen a book for African American boys that addresses their first haircut. It's a significant part of their lives,” explained Fallon Ward.

Ward says that the main character, “Harry” was used to give homage to the memories of her close childhood friend, Harry Phelps. The book includes many vivid illustrations of Harry, the barber, and Harry’s parents, that show Harry exemplifying bravery while going through the process of getting his first haircut.

The artwork adds to a vibrant and captivating reading experience. The author hopes to lighten the mood of a sometimes-daunting experience. She says the first haircut is a transition from baby boy to big boy.

Ward believes that barbershop owners will see the value of this book. She aims to get the “Happy Hairy Gets His First Haircut” into barbershops across the country in the near future.

She added that the book can serve as a liaison for children and their first experience, saying, “It’s a comforting mechanism for boys who may be anxious before getting their first haircut.”

“This picturesque book is what every barbershop will need whether they know it or not. “Happy Hairy Gets His First Haircut” will ensure that children are provided a comfortable experience while taking a huge step in growing up” said Jordan F. Briggs, Publicist to Fallon Ward.

For additional information about the book, call Fallon Ward, (864) 344-5060. For bookings and sponsorship opportunities, contact Jordan F. Briggs. emailjournalistjordanbriggs@gmail.com

Monday Morning Radio Podcast Features Joanne Lipman, Author & Editor

Joanne Lipman

Author & Editor Joanne Lipman

Leveling the professional playing field for those who face bias due to race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or physical handicap – is good for the bottom line.

Many of the male executives who are guilty of fostering – or merely allowing – a gender-biased workplace aren’t even aware of it.

— Joanne Lipman

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, June 21, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — This week’s Monday Morning Radio podcast features Joanne Lipman, former editor-in-chief of USA Today and author of the bestselling book, “That’s What She Said.”

The podcast is available to stream or download for free from: https://tinyurl.com/MMR061719

Lipman’s book fosters a frank conversation between male and female co-workers.

In her view, too many men in the workplace have no idea of the subtle and not-so-subtle biases that their female colleagues encounter daily.

“That’s What She Said” aims to remove the blinders – especially from male owners and managers – and prevent the awkwardness and the fear that many men have when it comes to discussing gender issues with their female co-workers.

As Lipman tells Monday Morning Radio Host Dean Rotbart, leveling the professional playing field for women – as well as those employees who face discrimination due to race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, or physical handicap – is not merely a matter of serving political correctness.

“Every piece of research shows you that when you have a gender-balanced workgroup and gender-balanced leadership that you are more financially successful,” she explains.

Lipman has had a storied journalism career, serving as the first woman to become a deputy managing editor at The Wall Street Journal; founding editor-in-chief of Condé Nast’s Portfolio magazine; and most recently as editor-in-chief of USA Today and Chief Content Officer of Gannett, which employs 3,000 journalists at 110 newspapers.

Yet, as Lipman notes on this week’s podcast, throughout her 35-plus-year career, she never felt that the professional playing field between her and her male colleagues was level.

During the three years that she worked on That’s What She Said – recently updated with new tips and cheat sheets – Lipman discovered that she is far from unique: millions of women in the American workforce share her on-the-job frustrations.

Lipman’s goal for That’s What She Said is anything but to shame men. She writes that many of the male executives who are guilty of fostering – or merely allowing – a gender-biased workplace aren’t even aware of it.

“All that will change once men read her book,” predicts host Rotbart.

Monday Morning Radio, now in its 8th year of production, features business owners and experts, including distinguished authors such as Ken Blanchard, Charles Duhigg, Jen Sincero, Skip Prichard, Henry Mintzberg, Carl Schramm, Daniel Burrus, Steve Strauss, Dudley R. Slater, Jack Quarles, and Lindsay Pedersen.

Footnanny Founder Gloria L. Williams, Inspired by the Funding, Empowered 100 Nail Technicians at the Premier Orlando Beauty Show with Products via PediCredit

The funding motivated me to provide an in-house financial platform for entrepreneurs that was not available to me. I developed a proven process to empower anyone interested in the nail tech business.”

— Gloria L. Williams, Founder and CEO of Footnannny, Inc.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, June 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Raising capital is a challenge,especially for minority and female entrepreneurs. Just ask Gloria L. Williams, the founder and CEO of Footnanny, Inc., which is a business of luxurious products that focus on foot care. "Since I launched the Footnanny Brand 5 years ago, I have had unprecedented success through several platforms but most importantly from the tweet about my product line by Ms.Oprah Winfrey," said Williams. "In spite of that extreme blessings and overwhelming demand for my products,securing funding was not easy.” Just recently MBE Capital Partners, LLC (MBECP) was introduced to Williams and other Minority/Woman-owned Businesses (MBE) at a business forum entitled, “The Workshop At Macy's,” which was held in New York. MBECP approved Williams' company Footnanny for $10 million future growth capital funding from the MBE Capital Partners’ Minority Vendor Access to Capital Program.

"The funding motivated me to give back to the beauty community and provide an in-house financial platform that was not available to me," she said. "I developed a multi-level process to empower anyone who is interested in entering the nail salon industry." Williams gifted her first book, “How To Open A Nail Salon With $1000” Volume 1 to a class of 100 beauty professionals at the Premier Orlando Beauty Show in Orlando, Florida. "I took a step further and surprised the entire class of nail technicians, estheticians, hairstylists, and barbers with a $300 PediCredit investment of Footnanny products for their current and future business," said Williams. "You could hear the screams of joy beyond the classroom door!" The 100 attendees are now authorized Footnanny Salon Retailers.

Williams doesn't stop there with a blueprint to owning a nail salon, she offers Pedicredit, an instant line of credit for Footnanny products, to make it easy for the new entrepreneurs to obtain supplies. "I established Pedicredit because I know how hard it is to get the seed money to buy quality products for the clients," she said. "I wouldn't be in this position today if it were not for the many women who have inspired me, believed in me or given me the hand up to be able to give back."

Her third process to the multi-level empowerment plan for nail technicians was the launch of her Facebook Live show, "Footnanny to the Rescue."

The Footnanny story began with her grandmother and mother whose philosophy was to heal through the power of touch. "My mother was from the South, specifically, Montgomery, Alabama, and and when a person didn't feel good we watched Mamma give them a good old fashioned "Rub Down!" explains Williams. "My wise mother believed that certain foods, oils, and teas played a crucial roll in the overall recovery of a person's ailments. Mamma would mix luxurious creams, ointments and oils, which we would then use to do the "Old Fashioned Rub Down" on those in need of a loving touch.

Williams' mantra is "Wellness Beyond a Pedicure." "I pride myself of my mother's legacy of wellness and now provide that for diverse customers around the world," she said. "Staying true to my mother's traditions and keeping her recipes in mind, I developed Footnanny, my signature line of aromatherapy foot products."
