Spending many years with two different companies, he decided to set
out on his own. In 2003 he created Juice Marketing, Inc., he served as

Tomette Herring founder of the Face Book Group entitled “Transform 2 Transcend, Transforming People to Transform the World”. This is one of a few trademarks that Tomette has developed to capture and communicate a belief and methodology for becoming the best of who we are in order to transcend the “average” thereby leaving a dynamic legacy that our children’s children can be proud of.
After all, what are we here to deliver anyway?
In my discussions, I realized that many of us have critical information that would prove very beneficial to those struggling to transform. We can help each other. So, why not share that. It might help someone stay in their home, obtain a job, get critical counseling for a loved one before devastation arrests them in a state of depression.
So, here’s the question. How do you SURVIVE until you THRIVE? I don’t have all the answers, but if you ask the community, you might be surprised.

The mission of Pan Africa Children Advocacy Watch (PACAW), Inc. is to nurture and develop a different generation of African leaders through the vehicle of ACCESS to a NEW EDUCATION CULTURE AT THE BASIC LEVEL. A type of education that will focus on turning the gaze of the children away from avarice, extortion, selfishness, the vain, and obsession with accumulation of material wealth, and prepare them for leadership that embraces living for a higher purpose.
PACAW will empower these children and young men and women, through education, to subjugate their personal and tribal interests to the interest and well - being of their nations. PACAW is focusing in particular on the education of students in the primary and secondary schools in the neglected and underserved communities in Sub-Sahara Africa. The parents and the local community, including the Parent Teacher Association (PTA), play a central role in charting the course of the future of the children in accordance with their aspirations, and also in the implementation of the objectives of PACAW, Inc. There is strict monitoring and accountability by the PTA, school officials and PACAW, Inc.
The goal is to have a critical mass of a new and different generation of African leaders who will champion de facto development of Africa by Africans. Our hope is that these " NEW " African nations will become productive contributors to the well-being of the human family of nations, and partners with the other developed nations rather than dependents drowning in a culture of chronic beggarliness. PACAW, Inc. believes that intelligence, capability, courage and good character are spread handsomely by OUR CREATOR across all segments of the human race. Thus, with the right type of education, and persistent help from altruistic and visionary mentors, the new leadership in Africa would be able to overcome the Continent's monumental problems.

GODISHEUS is a powerhouse Funk Rock band wildly popular in the D.C. indie music scene. Formed by veteran D.C. hip-hop icon Head-Roc and an all-star lineup of some of the heaviest hitters on the go-go scene— Dwayne ‘Super Bad III’ Lee on guitar (Fayces U Know, Heaven Sent, MVP, Familiar Faces, 3LG), Byron “BJ” Jackson (Rare Essence, MeShell Ndegeocello), and Kenny “Kwick” Gross on drums (Chuck Brown, Lissen Band, Marcus Johnson Project), GODISHEUS is hard at work to define a new live sound rooted in the Funk and Rock.
Head-Roc, who has taken on the stage name Om V for this project, is no stranger to working with a live band. During the mid ’90s, he and Super Bad III (lead guitar) were part of Three Levels of Genius (3LG), a live hip-hop band that proved influential in the region. Om V is quick to point out that GODISHEUS is not
a typical hip-hop band, but rather “the 21st century return of substantive Funk music for the people.”
As we all know, Funk beget Go-Go and Hip-Hop in ways dear to the District. Don’t get it twisted: GODISHEUS is no cover band doing their best Parliament rendition; they are a rare and raw D.C. Funk Rock sound with a message of empowerment for the people delivered by one of D.C.’s MC champions. Over tight arrangements that are equal parts funk, rock and soul, Om V brings the lyrical heat, speaking truth to power with every line, something that has earned him the respect of hip-hop heads, punk rockers, indie rockers, and progressive audiences all over. Powered by Kwick’s impeccable drumming, Super Bad III’s six-string magic, and the low end work of BJ on bass, the GODISHEUS International Funk Train is set to dazzle audiences worldwide!
