The Power of Business Networking 11

By Treva Gordon There are many ways to network your businesses throughout the community and even the world. Networking is “WORK”, but is most essential and can be very beneficial and a creative fun way of getting your name out there to the business community. Here are some great tips about Networking that you apply. 1. !Start with a plan:! Think about the many places you can network. Through networking you can triple and quadruple your business. You can go from 0-60 in a matter of time. What is networking anyway? It is a way to meet people. Do your research to find out what kinds of networking groups are available in your community. You may be surprised how many. There are networking groups for just about everything. Go for it. 2. Begin Building a list of Prospects: Think about all of the people that you know and begin first with that list; from family members, to friends, to people that you do business or go to school with. Start small with 10 and keep building it. Then ask people on your list for people they know. It is the power of referrals as well. 3. Get your Name out there: Yes, you have got to get out there. For starters, you can network by attending business luncheons, meetings and mixers, community/chamber events, meet and greets, as well as the power of social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, etc. When it comes down to social media, use wisely, but use it for the power they are worth. By going to different network meetings, you get to sample great food, shop ideas around, and make lasting contacts; not to mention the referrals that eventually can turn into dollars. On the cover, we proudly feature several business professionals networking together. In the month of October, we all came together for a great photo shoot thanks to Kelvin Braxton of Braxton Photography.

Mayor Karl Dean Runs To Promote Community Involvement by Lori Brenae Perkins

Since the holidays are approaching, now may be a good time to put on your boxing gloves and fight the temptation of overindulgence. Those who practice good eating habits may be game, but for those who aren’t quite there yet, perhaps an idea of participating in the third annual Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run will help you reach for your sneakers instead, and take the first step to a healthier lifestyle! In 2011, to help keep Nashville and other local communities physically fit, Mayor Karl Dean launched the 5K. The challenge drew more than 5,000 participants – some were first time runners and walkers. “Every year, we have seen people who have never walked or run in a 5K before. That’s why it is important to me that we help them prepare through a training program that costs them nothing and is available at locations throughout Davidson County,” Mayor Dean explained about a free eightweek training program that was originated in mid-Sept. to help participants prepare for the run.

Nashville Mayor Karl Dean participates in a Sept. 5 training session to prepare for the Mayor’s Challenge 5K Walk/Run, which will be held in downtown Nashville on Sunday, Nov. 17. The free event also will include a kids’ fun run. Registration is at For the past two years, the Mayor’s 5K has drawn more than 5,000 participants to celebrate active, healthy living. Metro Parks’ community centers will host free training sessions from Sept. 15 to Nov. 9. Photo Credit: Metropolitan Government of Nashville/Photographic Services

The program is exceptional to Mayor Dean because it gives participants access to a free 5K run, which raises the communities’ involvement to celebrate healthy living. “There are lots of 5K races that take place in Nashville every weekend, but this one is special because it is totally free and is appealing to first-time 5K participants,” Mayor Dean said. The 5K event, which is open to all ages and fitness levels, will begin Nov. 17 at 2:15 p.m., and will start and finish at the Public Square in front of the Historic Metro Courthouse in downtown Nashville—on-site registration will be available. Activities will start at noon and will include Kids’ Fun Run for children 12 and under; team photos with Mayor Dean; and other family activities. On Nov. 17-19, the Mayor’s Challenge 5K will also kick off the Seventh Annual Southern Obesity Summit, the largest regional obesity prevention conference in the U.S., at the new Omni Hotel in downtown Nashville. SOS draws hundreds of participants from 16 Southern states, according to Mayor Dean’s press release. For more information about the 5K Challenge, visit

Amid the disappointing economic crisis, will Christmas find you with an unshaken, thankful heart, yet a desire to spend more than you should? Or perhaps the government shutdown put a damper in your customary spending for expensive gifts, eye-catching decorations, or even the traditional food ingredients for fried turkey , chicken and dressing, candied yams, macaroni and cheese, green beans and caramel cake.

Amid the disappointing economic crisis, will Christmas find you with an unshaken, thankful heart, yet a desire to spend more than you should? Or perhaps the government shutdown put a damper in your customary spending for expensive gifts, eye-catching decorations, or even the traditional food ingredients for fried turkey, chicken and dressing, candied yams, macaroni and cheese, green beans and caramel cake. Whichever predicament you’re in or mouth-watering menu you choose, don’t entertain a “Bah Humbug” attitude. Instead, rejoice and let your heart sing louder than the carolers; and your giving shine as brightly as an overthe-top, decorated home. You can show love during the celebration of Christ without causing financial damage to your household. The following are a few suggestions: •

If you must, shop at dollar stores for decorations this year, and then shop for next year’s decorations, at costlier stores, when the prices are reduced at least 50 percent

Do weekly shopping for food ingredients and gifts instead of buying them all at once

Consider another family’s need and do something thoughtful for them

Bake homemade sweets and wrap them in colorful Saran Wrap

It’s common for some kid’s to receive a $10 bill; show them something different, hand them a roll of quarters instead and challenge them to save more than they spend

Use your arts and craft skills to make pillows and other crafty items

Create new memories, which includes playing board games or other activities your family enjoy

Call someone you haven’t spoken to in a while

Restore a friendship or relationship. If you’ve offended someone, or even if someone’s offended you, (maturely) make amends (without ruining the holiday)

You’d be surprised how the smallest gift can be the biggest blessing to someone. The following are inexpensive gift ideas: A cooked meal, scented candles, emergency kit, key chain pepper spray (for protection), a flashlight, jar of peppermints/ candy, potted plant, hair products, a mix CD or iTunes card, box of chocolate truffles, $10 restaurant gift card for a lunch treat, motivational books , lip balm and skin care products, a cookbook,cooking utensils, a hat, scarf and glove set, car detailing products/accessories For many, Christmas is family and friend time, but it can also be a day to embrace life lessons learned throughout the year. So share them! The popular adage “Jesus is the reason for the season,” and the Bible scripture, “It is better to give than to receive” should be permeated in the hearts of every Believer. Hopefully, whatever you decide to do, you will do it in the spirit of love and giving – but also, without creating debt.

Follow His Voice By Bishop Calvin Lockett

1",2$+%". 6$0% !! %.6$% --% *%

John 10:14:! "My sheep hear my voice..."

I'm blessed because my parents have always loved me, affirmed me, and spoken into my life. My mother taught me how to pray and she instructed me on the importance of God's Word. Dad drilled me on the importance of integrity by saying things like, "your word is your bond." They took me to church instead of sending me by someone else. But as great as they are, I've suffered many things because I disregarded their advice. One of my greatest regrets in life is the seasons when I had to learn life lessons "the hard way" instead of simply heeding the voice(s) of my parents.

How many times has The Holy Spirit convicted us to do something and we disobeyed? Because God's Spirit indwells us, believers are able to recognize our Master's Voice. Though there are times when we miss the mark (Romans 3:23, Isaiah 53:6), walking in disobedience to God should not be a repetitive practice in our lives. We must strive to get to the place where we trust The Voice of God unconditionally. Let's Pray: "Father, help us to obey Your Voice with full assurance and confidence, in Jesus' Name, amen."

Bishop Calvin Lockett is the Senior Pastor of Christ the Healer Church, 1295 Paradise Hill Road in Clarksville, Tennessee. He also serves as the Full Gospel Baptist Church Fellowship Tennessee State Bishop and oversees 23 churches throughout the state of Tennessee.

Hair Talk With Ms. Payne

Summer is over and the fall weather is upon us. Many women look for change in letting their hair rest during the cold season. Wigs and other kinds of hair pieces are becoming a popular trend. I can remember my mother who was a stylist as well having a wig for every occasion and like mother like daughter I too enjoy going wig shopping. I can find a wide variety of different styles, colors, textures, as well as lengths to choose from. It is always best to make sure you know what the quality of hair you are buying. Remember you get what you pay for and if all else fails consider having a wig customized just for you. Wigs give you variety in the ability to change your look without drastic change to your natural hair and variety is the spice of life. So have lots of fun and buy a wig soon. Thanks baby sis for your suggestion Denise Williams.

Community Spotlight

Angela Roberts Jones Pastor, preacher, teacher, mother, CEO, musician, singer, friend and mentor, are words that many might use to describe Pastor Angela. Through her ministry of prophetic teaching and preaching, many have received healing, deliverance, and illumination into the Word, Wisdom, and Will of God. However, she can now add to her many hats, the title of AUTHOR. Her book, the African American History Month Daily Devotionals 2014 will be released on December 1, 2013. You may preorder through the publisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website - Abingdon Press or (1.800.672.1789). The focus of this devotional is on the legacy of faith, vision, perseverance, and purpose as handed down through those who have gone before us. Its spiritual principals cross all cultural boundaries, however it is a combination of Black History facts, biblical scripture and inspiring words which will encourage, empower, enlighten and bring healing to the soul. Pastor Angela says that one of her greatest inspirations for writing this devotional was her experience of traveling with the world renowned Fisk University Jubilee Singers. Their awesome legacy of being former slaves and introducing the musical genre of the Negro Spiritual to the world greatly influenced her faith and attitude about life. She believes that if our ancestors had the persevering faith to overcome their trials, then we should understand that our faith can move mountains. She also shares briefly in this devotional how God healed her through one of the most painful trials in her life. But her testimony is that God is able to do exceedingly above all that we could ever ask or think, according to the power that works in us all, through Jesus Christ!

Being blessed in the New Year through worship by Lori Brenae Perkins

As we embark on a New Year, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consider the word worship. Some may see or hear worship and picture themselves (or somebody else) with their head and arms lifted during a song of praise; while others may believe it to be personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lifestyle. An online source suggests the Hebrew word â&#x20AC;&#x153;Shachahâ&#x20AC;? means to bow or sink down, or to prostrate oneself before anyone out of honor. The Bible is full of context showing that God expects us to worship Him: For example, Matthew 4 shows Jesus fasting forty days and nights in the wilderness when Satan approached and offered Him things that opposed the mission of Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kingdom. And Jesus replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Get out of here, Satan. For the scriptures say, you must worship the Lord your God; serve only Him.â&#x20AC;? Notice how Jesus spoke a scripture to Satan and he had to leave him alone, and how Jesus told Satan that he had to worship the Lord as well? If Satan has to worship and serve, surely Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s children should be doing so as well. The Children of Israel learned directly the importance of worshiping. During their time of suffering they complained and harshly spoke against Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prophet Moses, because things werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going as they expected. But God, because He is faithful, still provided for them. During a time of economic crisis, as Christians, let us not focus on resolutions, instead, examine our hearts and worship the Lord in Spirit and in Truth, John 4:24. Whatever trial youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re currently going through, be encouraged. Instead of wondering the outcome of the New Year, speak the Word, worship God with your life, and with a full understanding that He sees, hears, and knows your every need.

pt. 2

by Don Brock


few years back I came across a scripture that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard many times. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s found in Philippians 2:7-8, and it says: â&#x20AC;&#x153;â&#x20AC;Śhe made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to deathâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; even death on a cross!â&#x20AC;? After reading this I was blown away by the truth I just encountered. The scripture here is clear stating that Jesus became a servant who lived as a man and died as the savior.


We sell a variety of new and used items. Movies, Games, CDâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, Clothes, Shoes, Kitchen Items, Furniture, New & Used Mattresses, etc.

he book of Philippians also reveals a characteristic of humanity that is often overlooked. A great quality and amazing trait that is rarely recognized or brought to light, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s called servant-hood. The likeness of all human nature is service!! We canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but serve something or someone everyday of our lives. We as humans normally serve to profit, to pity or for philanthropy. Christ, the biggest philanthropist of all, was not only giving of his time, energy and substance but he gave his very own life. Christ died not for a certain person or people that had been treated unfairly, no, but he died for all nations who are enslaved to sin to be freed by him. This is the type of service we should be rendering to our fellow man, Selfless love and boundless mercy. We were all crated to serve one another, letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s make our creator proud. AMEN!

If someone told you that attending an event could change your view on history or assure that your life would significantly improve you would at least want to know what it was. From August 2013, that was the question that engulfed the minds of 15 young people at Family of Faith Worship Center who were sponsored to attend. It was an opportunity in which they were "chosen" to be a part of Clarksville Montgomery County's National Association for the Advancement of Colored People history. The closer the day came so did anticipation, excitement and a surreal reality check. Breona Vestle, age 20 said , "Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned or heard about the NAACP many times, but to be given the opportunity to attend the 5582 banquet, is the coolest thing ever. I am officially in NAACP member!"
