ince our inception, businesses have been attracted to Big Media USA because of the assistance we provide in helping them hone their message. The production of a podcast is a key part of what we do, by helping a business, individual, or non-profit focus their message; who is the best person to deliver it and where to place the message is the magic. The good news is that the internet has made it easy for people to shop for products and services. The bad news is that it has also made it harder for businesses and sole practitioners to differentiate themselves from their competitors. How do you stack up against your competitors? If a potential client/customer looks at my online presence vs. my competitors, do I win? Everyone has a website; no matter how nice it is in today’s fast-moving world, a website alone simply isn’t enough. Big Media USA’s Digital Marketing Package is designed to improve your online image and more. Third-party content is valuable and adds credibility to you and your image. The First Pillar of our program is a podcast that is housed on the Big Media USA Platform and pushed out to all the other major online partner platforms. Why is the Podcast interview important? You are the best one to tell your story, things like how you got into the business put in your own words; will show your passion and knowledge. People can make a decision that they want to work with you because of important factors, your sincerity, approachability, compassion, and desire to provide a great product or service. Why do I need an article in INformed People Magazine? The 2nd Pillar An article can dive deeper into who you are and what you do. You prepare it so it can highlight your philosophy, family or associates, and company. The article can be geared to sell products or services and is linked to your podcast. Why do I need to be “In the News”? The 3rd Pillar Remember the potential client/customer is looking at your side by side with your competitor and trying to decide whom to choose. Just imagine how impressive all the professionally produced media can be to your client/customer in a well-thought-out and prepared format. Why Do I Need It? Bonus: : by producing quality content you help your Search Engine Optimization and this makes it easier to be found!

"Our Life's Journey"

S P O T L I G H T

By: Samantha Campbell

The challenges we have had to overcome along the way to obtain success is a work in progress. Our challenges contributed to our title of our book as well as the creation of part of the book story line. Based on the challenges we have been through individually and collectively; we used the struggles of life to change the narrative of how we deal with them in a positive perspective. We used our struggles to bring hope to others who might be struggling. In addition, our faith, and the bible has been our source of encouragement throughout life.

Our best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life is to know yourself first. One must understand their own values and worth. Always strive to learn how to identify, affirm, and express how you feel. Sometimes one must have a clear vision of where they are going for there to be some form of motivation to press on. Furthermore, one must also find their own unique ways to push towards success. We have observed that our life is not our own, and we do not live only for ourselves but our lives impact others

POWER COUPLE

When Donavon and Samantha Campbell heard the phrase "from nightmare to sweet dreams" while listening to their youth pastor, Michelle Clarke, preach her first sermon, they were motivated and empowered to make this book a reality. It will remind the readers there is hope and a bright future ahead, despite struggles and disappointments. They were further inspired by a co-worker's statement that if anyone wants to experience growth or success, he or she must "do uncomfortable things to achieve goals in life." Our Life's Journey identifies challenging topics, such as understanding love, dealing with life's transitions, overcoming health and environmental struggles, discovering how to keep a positive mindset despite the negatives, and learning to fully depend on God's help in life. The authors hope that every reader of this inspired book will be motivated to accomplish their heart's desires and expand on their talents . . . let's GO!

We are looking forward to our first book launch in August 2021. It is also a strong possibility for another book soon in the future and we hope to collaborate on charity events that benefit people based on the specific needs and skills we can offer.

Nina's Blues

BY CORNELIUS EADY

Cornelius Eady, "Nina's Blues," from Hardheaded Weather: New and Selected Poems, published by Putnam. Copyright 2008 by Cornelius Eady. Reprinted by permission of the author. Source: Hardheaded Weather: New and Selected Poems (Putnam, 2008)

Your body, hard vowels In a soft dress, is still. What you can't know is that after you died All the black poets In New York City Took a deep breath, And breathed you out; Dark corners of small clubs, The silence you left twitching On the floors of the gigs You turned your back on, The balled-up fists of notes Flung, angry from a keyboard. You won't be able to hear us Try to etch what rose Off your eyes, from your throat. Out you bleed, not as sweet, or sweaty, Through our dark fingertips. We drum rest We drum thank you We drum stay.

Caged Bird

BY MAYA ANGELOU

Maya Angelou, “Caged Bird” from Shaker, Why Don't You Sing? Copyright © 1983 by Maya Angelou. Used by permission of Random House, an imprint and division of Penguin Random House LLC. All rights reserved. Source: The Complete Collected Poems of Maya Angelou (Random House Inc., 1994)

A free bird leaps on the back of the wind and floats downstream till the current ends and dips his wing in the orange sun rays and dares to claim the sky. But a bird that stalks down his narrow cage can seldom see through his bars of rage his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom.

The free bird thinks of another breeze and the trade winds soft through the sighing trees and the fat worms waiting on a dawn bright lawn and he names the sky his own But a caged bird stands on the grave of dreams his shadow shouts on a nightmare scream his wings are clipped and his feet are tied so he opens his throat to sing. The caged bird sings with a fearful trill of things unknown but longed for still and his tune is heard on the distant hill for the caged bird sings of freedom. -

from the earth. We are all born with a gift; some may have more than one, but we all have a gift that is unique to us and to us only. All have gifts and many persons may never seek to know their gift nor are they aware that they even have one. Most people will spend their whole life never knowing their worth (value,) they will only operate from their skills and not their gifts. As long as you are working from your skills others will determine what your worth is. Your skills are what you have been trained to do, for instance, your education level, your choice of study, or on-the-job training technical skills. Yes, in some cases your skill can also be your gift however your skill is your job, where your gift is your work. For your gift, you go to bed thinking about it, wake up thinking about it, and excited to do it. Your gift is your worth. It will bring you peace, fulfillment, and wealth while at the same time helping others. Your gift will always be involved in helping others. When you operate from your skills there is a limit on your value and others can tell you what you are worth because they can always train others to do your skill. No one else will ever be able to train for your gift as it is GOD-given and only for you. Others can try to imitate it, but they cannot have it, it will only be a counterfeit. You have the original. Your gift is priceless no one can be trained for it. Now is the time to get to know your purpose, know your strength. Don’t chase success or money. Know your gift and money will chase you; be unique this is what makes you valuable. Always do more than what is required of you. When you find or determine what your worth is, stand boldly not arrogantly, be unmovable.
