Janelle Brown Helps Women Find Their Purpose

Never underestimate the power of a wide open door beckoning you to enter. Sometimes when we embrace an excellent opportunity, we’re given more than we thought we would ever receive. Last year a woman in our community asked Janelle Brown to consider going to the We3 Women’s Conference. She accepted though she was unsure of what would await her. At the conference, a woman felt compelled to tell Janelle that she saw her having some speaking engagements in the future. Now, may I present to you, the keynote speaker of this year’s We3 Women’s Conference, Janelle Brown.

Local Mobile Thrift Store Seeks To Clothe Refugees in Dignity

Imagine feeling like a stranger in a foreign place full of people who don’t look like you and speak another language. You may want to isolate yourself because of the fear of what it might be like if you stepped out into that unfamiliar world.

Hunting for Bargains – Are They Really Out There? by Deon Cannon

It’s in our nature to search high and low for a good deal, especially in real estate and the stock market.  We’ve all heard the comment, “Buy low, and sell high.” Of course, that’s just common sense. In real estate, whether it is a place to call home, investment property or a business location, everyone wants a good deal when it’s time to buy.  Conversely, property sellers are looking for the best margins too, unless perhaps they are overly extended and cash flow is shrinking. That’s the time many sellers who are holding multiple properties may be more inclined to accept a lower purchase price.
