Becoming a top Braider in the Beauty industry has lead me to teaching others how to braid in my Braid Like A Boss Academy classes where I share my talents in a hands-on workshop to primarily women to encourage them to be independent and become their own boss. I have been having these classes for about four years now and every session I meet ambitious women wanting to change their lives. Read more>>

Rodney Williams

In 2017, the diagnosis hit me like a “ton of bricks” as I immediately felt I failed my son…thinking to myself why did I not act sooner. I reflected on the overlooked periods of frustration, as he attempted to communicate what he “needed” or “wanted” and my asking, “What did you say?” or “Please repeat that again”. It was a gut-wrenching moment; yet, the speech-language pathologist (SLP) conveyed the areas of concern were correctable. Read more>>

Really Jesus paid it all and all to him I owe for where I am today. Elevating Voices started as just an idea one year ago. As a black gay man, I was tired of seeing the same stereotypical gay characters in media, TV, radio and online. Everyone was either a stylist, cosmetologist, or just a flamboyant side character. None of those characters looked or acted like me so I developed elevating voices. Read more>>

Willie Smith

It started when my shoe size became bigger than my fathers and he then stated that he would no longer be purchasing any of my shoes because of my shoe size. I was in the 8th grade. He told me he’s already given me all the tools needed to make some money on my own, I just had to use them. So I started cutting yards, cleaning gutters around the neighborhood. Read more>>

I have always believed that if you chase money, you will never find fulfillment. But if you chase your passion, you will always be fulfilled. So I did that.

I love everything about what I do. Read more>>

Gregg Mazza

One of the most life-altering moments of my life was fully experiencing both of my grandparents as their life was winding down to the final moments while at a hospice house. I remember how grounding the experience was and it opened up my eyes to one keyword “finality” and the truth that we would all experience that on this physical earth at some point. Read more>>

Chaunta Flucas

I spent the next 15 years of my life trying to find something else to do. I gained a lot of experience along the way; however, I struggled to find a career that was fulfilling. One detail (dissecting human body parts) changed everything for me, and I figured I was not the only person who has had this experience. That realization turned into the creation of the Get to Work!TM Program. Read more>>

Damon Sumner

It all started from a question. One day, fellow comedian David Perdue, and I were joking around after church and someone asked us, “man, have y’all ever thought about standup?” To be honest, I never had. I didn’t grow up like many comics with my dad playing Richard Pryor records or staying up late to watch great comedians do their first, late-night sets. Read more>>
