    Dr. JJ Spinner with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    Dr. JJ Spinner is an individual whose purpose on earth is to serve his community (locally and globally) and positively impact the lives of every individual that he encounters. His personal mission statement for his life is:  “I was placed on earth not to serve myself but to serve others with my life, ensuring that the work that I do while on earth outlives me because of the effect reflected by the lives that I impacted.” His vision statement is to serve others by encouraging others to think big beyond their life’s obstacles; by standing in the gap for those that have been rejected or ostracized; and by representing hope to those that have given up and have no hope for a better tomorrow. At a height of 6’11’’, he figuratively and literally understands the “tall” assignment bestowed upon him.  In 1994, he founded Big Spin Enterprises, which has been recognized for its community service and activism, especially its youth program. As the C.E.O of Big Spin Enterprises as well as a former professional athlete, a minister, an educator, a writer, an actor, and a community activist, he has established effective programing that the youth can relate, learn and be impacted by because of the plethora of experience and connections that bring much needed support and resources to those that need it the most.  Whether it is his anti-bullying or his personal development programs for the youth, Dr. JJ Spinner along with Big Spin Enterprises seeks to end all types of anti-bulling, domestic violence and self-abuse by building character, redirecting challenging and negative behavior and motivating them to be positive role models in the community.

    Minister Michael Barrett with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    Because of my choices, I  made a bed for myself that I was forced to lie in at a young age. When it came time for me to reap from all the wrong I had sowed, I had no idea, that I would have to spend 18 years of my life in Federal prison. Finally, the false reality I had been chasing after for so long, had revealed its true identity. And yes; "It was just what my mother tried to warn me about.From the streets, to the fed's, to the pulpit, is my life's journey, through the material possessions, women, money, temporary happiness, prison, trials and tribulations. In no way is this story meant to glorify the life I once lived. However, it's purpose is to glorify the GOD, that brought me through it all, in spite of who I use to be."Sometimes in life, we have to lose what we think is everything, in order to know what everything truly is. Life is all about CHOICES!"

Talent agents, Christopher Young and Tay Smith are noticeably the hardest working, African American TV/film agents in the entire southeast area.

    Actor Clay Chappell with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    Atlanta - Actor Clay Chappell is no newcomer to the big screen. As a working actor, he has landed some prime bit parts in several major films. He played a councilman alongside Dennis Quaid in the remake of "Footloose" and did a scene with Robert Duvall in the Billy Bob Thorton directed "Jayne Mansfield's Car." But his brief appearance in the cinematic drama, "Selma," a historical period piece distributed by Paramount Pictures, has been heralded as the showstopper which may just define his career. In "Selma," Chappell plays a southern registrar opposite Oprah Winfrey as Annie Lee Cooper, a Black women seeking to vote in 1965 when racial discrimination made voting very difficult. The scene, only a minute in length, sets the tone for the entire film, and is Oprah's only speaking role in the movie.According to film critic, Derrick Bang ( the-march-resonates-anew )   "the scene with Oprah is a "landmark cinematic moment: a scene destined to be memorialized, and oft resurrected, for decades to come." Chappell's performance has been highlighted on talk shows across the country, including "Ellen," "The Tonight Starring Jimmy Fallon," "Barbara Walters," and "The Today Show." Not bad for an actor who has been working since 1996 to secure more than five lines in a film!Chappell originally auditioned for the role of one of the klansmen in the film, but was asked by casting director Cynthia Stillwell to come back and read for the role of the registrar for the film's director, Ava DuVernay. After doing so, Chappell was asked back but couldn't make the third audition and thought maybe he had lost further consideration. When his agent at J Pervis Talent called him a week later, requesting a table read, he remained hopeful. DuVernay offered him the part after the read,

    Actor, Drew Stephenson with Boyd and Lucinda

    in Lifestyle

    Atlanta, GA - Music, modeling and acting are among the top three career goals for many in the entertainment field, but it is a well known fact that only a small percentage actually make any real headway in all three pursuits. Up and comer Drew Stephenson will not tell you that he is different, but he will show you with his persistence, determination and dedication. So much so that the young actor just stepped off the USA Network's newest television drama, "Complications," and is now celebrating landing a recurring role on one of television's top suspense series, "Vampire Diaries," on The CW. Stephenson will play Collin, an integral character to the show's plot, on two consecutive shows, starting January 22, 2015.  A second generation Jamaican, Stephenson was born in Brooklyn and currently resides in Atlanta. The handsome young looker initially got his start in the business eight years ago as a fashion model, booking gigs like the Sean John anniversary fashion show and print ads for Ashley Furniture, Belk, and Wingate.

    Soul Retrieval and Past Life Regression ~ Travis Sanders

    in Spirituality

    What is Soul Retrieval? Soul Retrieval is a shamanic-based approach to remedy the condition of "soul fragmentation." Soul Loss or Fragmentation"  is an extreme/spiritual disassociation  that often occurs when one experiences trauma. In this trauma a part of the soul/consciousness/spirit detaches from the "self" (disassociation is a natural coping mechanism) and the soul fragment doesn't return without assistance. There are many mental, emotional and physical issues that may be a result of soul loss or soul fragmentation.

    Past Life Regressions are a hypnotherapeutic technique used for accessing past life memories. Why is the helpful? Often times our present day issues, especially those of a chronic or repetitive nature have roots in past life experiences (such as relationship patterns, phobias, night terrors, allergies, or chronic physical symptoms). By exploring and understanding past life issues we may be able to get to the origin of current issues that interfere with our lives, and alleviate them in the present, clearing the residue of the past, and leaving us with a clean slate to move forward with and empower ourselves to create a more peaceful desirable life experience.

    Travis James Sanders' is a young but accomplished Psychic Medium, who has appeared on national television regarding his work with Spirit, featured on A&E's Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, Entertainment Tonight's, The Insider, and could be seen on Nancy Grace. He’s appeared on a variety of radio programs, including CBS Radio. He is a certified Reiki Teacher, Quantum Life Coach, Angel Therapy Practitioner, and Past life Healer.
