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.

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.Read More
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. In Clarkston, Ga, 1,500 refugees a year are welcomed into the city, relearning how to live in a completely different culture. Some even seclude themselves in their houses out of fear and still, a longing for relationship remains.Read More

Martin Luther King Jr. once said he had a dream “…that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” Brotherhood is another name for community and it is a need at the core of every human being. That is precisely what the team at The Mayor’s House in Stone Mountain Village is fighting for. Stone Mountain is a city unfortunately known for its racial divide, but that will all change soon as this powerful group of young leaders takes on a city to transform it into one of brotherhood.Read More

But right here in the United States, women still face barriers to their financial progress. If you’re a woman, you need to recognize these challenges – and respond to them.Read More
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.
