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 / — 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.

"I have worked and consulted for some of the best luxury salons and spas across the US and I know what it means to be a professional nail technician."

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 intention of the show is to help people who need some guidance in navigating the world of finance and marketing with it comes to building a nail salon business.

"I have successfully rescued more than 200 nail techs and counting," said Williams. "When you meet a Footnanny Tech you will see a variety of the best nail and foot care products available."

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." All Footnanny products are made in the USA and are cruelty-free as well as Leaping Bunny approved.

Steve Bellin-Oka is the Poet Resident for 2019 for the National Parks Arts Foundation and Poetry Foundation

My own work deals with cultural memory and how traumatic national events such as the Civil War are remembered, misremembered, reimagined, and reinterpreted by Americans in later historical periods”

— Steve Bellin-Oka, Poets in Parks Resident

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, US, June 20, 2019 / — The National Park Arts Foundation (NPAF), the Poetry Foundation, the National Parks Service, and the Gettysburg Foundation announce Steve Bellin-Oka as the 2019 Poets in Parks artist-in-residence. Poets in Parks is a unique partnership expressly designed and curated to raise the profile of poetry as a vibrant and modern public art. Bellin-Oka is the second Poets in Parks resident, and will spend one month in residency at Gettysburg National Military Park with a $1,000 stipend.

“The beauty and variety of United States national parks provide fertile ground for growing dialogue around poetry, shared history, and art as a public service,” said Stephen Young, program director at the Poetry Foundation. “We’re excited to have Mr. Bellin-Oka continue these conversations as the new Poets in Parks resident. The relationship between the past in present in his work is well-suited to Gettysburg, where history is both commemorated and alive.”

Gettysburg and Beyond

The National Park Service’s cultural mandate to recognize and foster a democratic and participatory dialogue through the arts has never been more important. The current national debate about the representation and memorial of Civil War history provides an opportunity for education and discussion.

Bellin-Oka’s poems written during the residency will expand those conversations. He will begin his month-long residency at Gettysburg National Military Park in September, writing, leading workshops, and sharing his poetry in a public reading on October 11, 2019. After his residency, he will travel to Washington, D.C. and to the Poetry Foundation in Chicago in May, 2020 on a poetry tour with the first Poets in Parks resident, Xochitl-Julisa Bermejo.

A Poet Connected to the Past

A native of Baltimore, Maryland, Bellin-Oka grew up surrounded by Civil War battlefields; he takes the not-so-ghostly presences of history seriously, and intends to explore them during his time at Gettysburg.

“My own work deals with cultural memory and how traumatic national events such as the Civil War are remembered, misremembered, reimagined, and reinterpreted by Americans living in later historical periods,” said Bellin-Oka. “As William Faulkner puts it in his novel Absalom, Absalom, ‘maybe nothing ever happens once and is finished.’ In other words, the past is never just the past—it co-exists with the present and shapes it, like double exposure on a piece of film.”

He plans to write poems that imagine Abraham Lincoln preparing to give The Gettysburg Address, the experiences of soldiers on both sides, and new works in response to Civil War poems of the battlefield.

Bellin-Oka earned his MFA from the University of Virginia and his PhD from the University of Southern Mississippi’s Center for Writers. He currently lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he is a 2019 Tulsa Artists Fellow, awarded by the George Kaiser Family Foundation. His debut collection, Instructions for Seeing a Ghost, won the 2019 Vassar Miller Prize in Poetry, and will be published by the University of North Texas Press in 2020.

Mother's Child – The Nightmare Discovery of Mitochondrial Disease

A fictional retelling, of the factual events, of what it means for a family accused of child abuse.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED_STATES, June 19, 2019 / — Mother’s Child, by author and publisher Michael Conant, explores the challenges of a family with a child with an undiagnosed disease.

After serving as the president of CureMito, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting research and awareness of mitochondrial disease, Mr. Conant planned to write a scene for one of the board member’s daughters who attended an arts high school in Pomona, CA. Further discussion turned that project idea into a one-act play. After life got in the way, and the daughter graduated from high school, the project morphed into a book. Flash forward to after four years of procrastination, a year of thinking about it, and 18 months of writing, editing, and re-writing, and Mother’s Child finally came to fruition, launching in March of this year.

“I had the book in my head for four years. It bothered me that this promise had gone unfulfilled for so long and, after launching my publishing company and working with many talented editors and authors, I found I had run out of excuses for putting it off. Finally, I found the discipline to make it happen.” Said Mr. Conant.

The novel evolves around the fictional Gallagher family and is told through the voice of June Gallagher, the mother of Ernie, a child sick with many unidentified ailments. The story opens as June becomes a reluctant hero, saving a child from a burning car that is involved in a horrific accident. That opening scene proves poignant as much of the remainder of the book focuses on June, along with the rest of her family, husband Tim and daughter Elsie, as she tries desperately to save her son Ernie from an unknown disease.

As the novel continues, we share the family’s struggles with the disease, as well as with overly ambitious family services, interfering hospital staff, and a doctor who’s ignorance of mitochondrial disease leads to unfounded accusations of child abuse. As Mr. Conant notes, “The characters may be fictional, but the story accurately represents what too many families go through when their child is diagnosed with mitochondrial disease.”
Mr. Conant adds, “I wanted the novel to be a story about a family; about a woman finding her inner strength and voice, about developing friendship from unexpected places, and about the humor of life that goes on within the struggles of having a sick child. I wanted to write a story that anyone could identify with and that would stick to their hearts – not just a book about mitochondrial disease, but about life.”

Mother’s Child is available on Amazon, B&N, Indie Bound, and most book retailers.

Michael introduced New York audiences to the American premier of Hal Shaper’s musical adaptation of Jane Eyre, which featured Michael as Rochester along with a very young Alyssa Milano as his ward, Adelle.

Shortly after moving to Pasadena, CA, Mr. Conant was introduced to Cure Mito, an organization of “Mito Moms” dedicated to funding Mitochondrial Disease research in support of Dr. Richard Boles at Los Angeles Children's Hospital. Michael helped the group secure non-profit status and was elected as the organization’s first president.

Those feelings of fear, doubt, resentment, abandonment, isolation, distrust, spilled over into my teenage years and later into adulthood. I wasn’t sure of who I was called to be. These are generational patterns and habits and behaviors.

“When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, eventually you'll find a way to a different result,” says Tschanna. “That's the purpose of this book, to show people that your past doesn’t have to continue to follow you, to haunt you. And if you change your mindset of how you look at these things, your mess can truly become a masterpiece.”

Ageless Authors Writing Contest Honors Dozen Top Texas Senior Writers

Texas prize winners 2019

Dallas-area senior writers Rosanne Gordon and Tank Gunner were among a dozen Texans honored for their outstanding work in the 2019 Ageless Authors Writing Contest.

Team leader Ann Howells

Dallas poet Ann Howells led the poetry team for Ageless Authors.

Team leader Jane Giddan

Carrollton author Jane Giddan oversaw judges from around the world.

Cash prizes announced for international competition in five different writing categories

The quality of this year’s submissions is off the chart.”

— Executive Director Larry Upshaw

DALLAS, TX-TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 19, 2019 / — “Estate Sale,” a humorous short story by Rosanne Gordon of Dallas, won a cash prize in the 2019 Ageless Authors International Writing Contest exclusively for senior writers age 65 and older. This short story is one of a dozen entries from Texas writers and poets honored by the group.

The 2019 contest awarded first, second and third cash prizes in five different categories for a total of 15 cash prize winners. With the judging finished, 75 outstanding writers from around the world are being honored at the group’s website,

Ageless Authors is a Dallas, Texas-based organization dedicated exclusively to encouraging and promoting the work of senior writers. The group’s third contest, which ended in April, includes writing in Memoir, Humor, Adventure, Romance and Poetry. Participants include top professional writers as well as those who have never sold any of their writing.

Gordon won third prize in the Humor category. Texans receiving honorable mentions are Tank Gunner of Duncanville and Claire Hart-Palumbo of Houston (Romance); Brenda Guyton of Dallas (Humor) and Scooter Smith of Dallas (Humor and Memoir); and Stephen Dunn of Dallas (Poetry).

The prolific Gunner submitted entries in several categories and was “recognized” for an entry along with Michelle Ferrer of Plano and Leah Rae Lake of Austin (Romance); Glenn Thaxton of Dallas (Humor); Zandra Mink-Fuller of Burleson and Nick Sweet of Shepherd (Poetry).

“The quality of this year’s submissions is off the chart,” says Larry Upshaw, Executive Director of Ageless Authors. “It is only fitting that we honor a greater number of elderly writers who created these wonderful stories and poems.”

Local author Jane Giddan and poet Ann Howells led Ageless Authors’ international panel of writers, editors and publishers, numbering more than 40 judges this year, who read and evaluated each entry. The best work will be published later this year in the third collection of Ageless Authors Anthology. The first book is available now at and The second anthology will be released this summer.

In addition, all entrants will receive the comments of the judges who reviewed their submissions.

Ageless Authors offers writing contests and anthology publishing as well as ghostwriting and publishing services to older writers. “Many of our members have used other services and felt they were not treated fairly,” says Upshaw, who has more than 50 years of experience as a journalist, author and marketing executive. “We are growing a community of seasoned senior writers who help each other become successful.”

The best overall entry will be awarded the second annual Bivona Prize, named for the late co-founder of Ageless Authors, novelist and poet Ginnie Siena Bivona. The cash award for winning this prize is $250.

The next Ageless Authors writing contest will open for submissions in the fall. The writing categories for the next contest will be different from the just-completed contest. To view the rules and guidelines for that next contest, go to later this year.

“Because we feature only older writers, we are a showcase for their writing,” says Upshaw. “No one else exclusively promotes senior writers and they enjoy competing against each other. We are also becoming a place that publishers go to find outstanding senior writing for magazines and writing collections.”

What Does a Copyright Mean, and What Are the Different Types?

Trademark & IP Attorneys

Intellectual Property Attorneys

A copyright gives exclusive rights to persons who create original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, and other intellectual works.

Copyright law does not apply to facts and ideas. Instead, it protects the representation of facts and ideas.”

— Alex Sluzas, Esq.


What is a Copyright?

A copyright ascertains exclusive rights to persons who create original works of authorship, including literary, dramatic, musical, artistic and certain other intellectual works. Being a form of intellectual property law, it applies to both published and unpublished works.

Copyright law does not apply to facts and ideas. Instead, it protects the representation of facts and ideas. Works that are still intangible and not rendered onto a physical medium are just ideas and therefore not entitled to copyright protection.

Unlawful usage of works protected by the copyright law is known as copyright infringement. In case of infringement, you can seek the help of a copyright attorney. Copyright lawyers help clients apply for copyrights and represent them in disputes over copyrighted material.

Copyright offers the owner exclusive right to:

-Reproduce the work in copies
-Prepare imitative works based upon the original work.
-Distribute copies of the work to the public by sale or other transfer of ownership or by rental, lease, or lending
-Perform the work publicly if it is a literary, musical, dramatic, or choreographic work
-Display the work publicly if it is a pictorial, graphic, audio-visual or sculptural work. This right also applies to the still images of a motion picture or other audiovisual creations.
-Broadcast the work publicly using a digital audio transmission if the work is a sound recording

Copyright law applies to the following:
-Literary works
-Musical works
-Dramatic works
-Choreographic works
-Artistic works
-Motion pictures and other audiovisual works
-Sound recordings
-Architectural works
-Literary Works

Section 101 of the Copyright Act defines “literary works” as “works, other than audiovisual works, expressed in words, numbers, or other verbal or numerical symbols or indicia, regardless of the nature of the material objects, such as books, periodicals, manuscripts, phonorecords, film, tapes, disks, or cards, in which they are embodied.”
Works termed as “literature,” such as novels, poems, stories, essays, etc.

Written work like catalogs, reference books and databases are also applicable for copyright protection. On the Internet, this definition of literary work includes emails, blog posts, online forums posts, and even computer programs.

Musical Works

“Musical works" include the instrumental component of the work as well as any accompanying words. According to Section 115 of the Copyright Act, musical works should have “compulsory licensing” once they have been released to the public. These compulsory licenses allow any musician to perform or record their own version of a song without getting permission from the original songwriter.

Dramatic Works

Any work of action, with or without words or music that can be performed before an audience falls under the category of “Dramatic works.” Dramatic works include plays, screenplays, scripts, choreographic notation, choreographic shows and scenarios for a film (but not the film itself). Any work that is intended to be performed dramatically and has been recorded in some form is qualified for copyright protection. Copyright owners of dramatic works possess the right to reproduce, publish, publicly perform, communicate or adapt their works.

Artistic Works

Artistic work commonly includes pictorial, graphic and sculptural works. Artistic works are protected by various statutory rights pursuant to section 32 of the Copyright Act 1968. Some examples provided by this section include paintings and drawings, sculptures, crafts, architectural plans and buildings; and photographs; and maps and plans. Digital illustrations also fall under this category.

Motion Pictures and Other Audiovisual Works

"Audiovisual work," involves anything which combines both images (visual) and recorded sound (audio). The category of "audio-visual works" includes not just movies. Everything from movies to slideshows to video podcasts—anything that is meant to be visually presented (be it on a projector, TV or computer screen) that consists of recorded sound and images.

Sound Recordings

Sound recordings are defined by the Copyright Act as "works that result from the fixation of a series of musical, spoken, or other sounds, but not including the sounds accompanying a motion picture or other audio-visual work.”

Unlike musical works copyright, which protects the musical notes that make up a song, the actual recording of that performed notation is protected as a sound recording. That is, an actual recording of the song onto a physical medium (the CD, tape, mp3 file, etc.) is considered a sound recording. Sounds can also include speeches, sound effects, and audio books.

Architectural Works

The architectural work category protects the design of a building in architectural blueprints, architectural drawings, and even buildings themselves. In the case of architectural works, copyright can protect the work’s general form as well as the arrangement and composition of spaces and elements in the design. Buildings meet the general requirements for copyright protection if they are not just basically functional but have adequately original design.

The Dad Bod is back in the news. You know that area of the stomach once called beer belly, is now tagged the Dad Bod. Fact, its unhealthy, visceral fat.

The Dad Bod! The fact is its unhealthy, visceral fat. Which studies show, visceral fat can lead to all sorts of health problems including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.”

— Rob Fletcher Author of America's Next Great Trainer Transforma Your LIfe

COLUMBUS, OHIO, UNITED STATES, June 18, 2019 / — The infamous Dad Bod, many media sources are saying more women are finding the Dad bod more appealing than ever before. Studies show visceral fat can lead to all sorts of health problems including heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. That should be enough information to say no to the Dad Bod. Try the 60 Day Bod Challenge.

Nutritionist Danielle Pashko and I were enlisted by the NY Post to do a Dad Bod Challenge to accepting volunteers. In only a few weeks time we had awesome results – blood pressure improved, inches off the waistline, increase in lean muscle mass, body fat loss. In addition, more energy, less stress, more productive. happier, and healthier.

Take your own 60 Day Bod Challenge with benefits you will see and feel; lose body fat, inches off your waistline, gain lean muscle, increase strength and conditioning. Sculpt, tone, and define your body. Best of all, transform yourself. Feel Great! Look Great! Take control, be accountable. Slow, gradual, positive changes in daily habits and behaviors will set you up for long term success.

General advice and tips to get you started.

1. Consume high-quality proteins – beef, fish, chicken, eggs.

2. Avoid processed foods. Reduce, or cut out whites: pasta, bread, potatoes, rice, cheese, bread, dairy,

3. Avoid candy, soda and fruit juices.

4. Get in the habit of reading labels “nutritional facts” and “ingredients”

5. Drink plenty of water throughout the day. Throw in a lemon or lime. Lemon assists in the process of digestion and elimination. The popular formula is 8 glasses of water a day.

6. Consume your meals according to your post-meal activities. Also known as, nutrient timing.

7. Smaller more frequent meals through the course of the day. Keeps the appetite satisfied.

8. Healthy Snacks: natural foods, fruits, nuts, and vegetables.

9 Choose cardio or short interval workout first thing in the morning. Your body will use stored fat for fuel, as there is no muscle glycogen to use.

10. Hit the Gym. Get that workout in.

In regard to exercise, strength, and conditioning always check with your doctor prior to starting any exercise program. Nutrition, exercise and strength building work together for optimal results. Start a daily workout program. If you cannot do it alone, make an investment in yourself. Seek advice and guidance from a professional credible trainer and/or nutritionist to get you started. They will do a true evaluation and assessment. Together you set goals, make a plan and make it happen.

Very valuable things for you to know: Your RHR(Resting Heart Rate), MHR(Maximum Heart Rate) – 220 – your age = MHR. Your THR (Target Heart Rate)
In order to get your THR take your MHR x 0.75 = THR, MHR x 0.85 = THR. An excellent resource

Do your own personal assessment for before and after comparison. On day one and your final day 60 record the following: weight, bodyfat, waist, chest, biceps, quads (mid-thigh):

1. Find your RHR =

2. Step Test: step on and off a box for 1 minute as fast as you can (box approximately 12 inches high) – Heart Rate =

3. Squats: as many as you can in 1 minute – Total Repetitions =

4. Push Ups: as many as you can in 1 minute – Total Repetitions =

5. Burpees: as many as you can in 1 minute =

6. Plank: hold as long as you can. Time =

Take the Dad Bod Challenge. The journey to a healthier, happier you. If you have any questions I am always available by email I will try my best to answer any in a timely manner.

Live positive, healthy, fit, confident and strong.

Cover Art – A Spoonful of Courage

Dr. Charles Page

Written by Surgeon and Author Dr. Charles Page, New Book Shares True Stories of Ordinary People Transforming Their Greatest Challenges into Blessings

These patients had a depth of character, determination of spirit, and passion for life that defies human explanation.”

— Dr. Charles Page

NACOGDOCHES, TEXAS , UNITED STATES, June 18, 2019 / — Often a medical diagnosis can be life-changing. The unknown can become overwhelming and all-consuming. Fear can take over our thinking and rob us of our joy. However, the new book, A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE FOR THE SICK AND SUFFERING: Transforming your Greatest Challenges Into Your Biggest Blessings, challenges these concepts by sharing true stories of patients who chose to not be defined by their diagnosis. Written by Dr. Charles Page, A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE will be available July 16, published by Morgan James Faith.

Known as “the best guy to know on the worst day of your life,” Dr. Page is a Texas-based surgeon, author, and storyteller. For the past twenty years, he has served as a healer for thousands of patients and a confidant for their loved ones. With A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE, Dr. Page has compiled some of the most inspiring stories of his career. As he walked with each extraordinary patient through their medical journey, Dr. Page experienced firsthand the life lessons that made them better, not bitter. Their lives are filled with joy, peace, and fulfillment during life’s most difficult seasons.

A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE was written to help those who are in the throes of health issues to know that they are not alone, to respond with faith, to focus on helping others, to experience freedom from worry, and to find courage by hearing the stories of others.

“I wanted to write a book that would encourage those who may be facing the biggest challenge of their lives,” explains Dr. Page. “Often people feel alone in their health struggles, so by sharing these true stories of some of my patients over the years, I hope that readers can re-frame their mindset. These patients had a depth of character, determination of spirit, and passion for life that defies human explanation. Their lives can help others realize that their challenges can become their biggest blessings.”

A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE FOR THE SICK AND SUFFERING: Transforming your Greatest Challenges Into Your Biggest Blessings by Dr. Charles Page, available now in e-book format, and July 16, 2019, in print format. A SPOONFUL OF COURAGE is published by Morgan James Faith.
