Spotlight for January 2019

   The start of the New Year has people setting alot of goals and having ambitions to make their businesses bigger and prosperous. I had the pleasure of meeting a gentleman months ago when I started my journey into entrepreneurship with online sales as my Marketing Consultant.  We have been friends for a very short time but he made me realize where my niche was and I am forever grateful for his help and wanted to share his story and business with you.
My Spotlight for January is Devion Ayers.

Me: “What is your name?”
Devion: “My name is Devion Ayers, Sr.  I now have to make that distinction because my firstborn, junior, is 26 years of age.

Devion: “I was born and raised in Trenton, NJ, where I currently reside.”
Me: “What is the name of your business, and how did you get started?”
Devion: “The business I am currently building is Practical Marketing Solutions.  However, it is currently marketed and branded as”
Me: ” In 2018, what was the most difficult lesson you learned about working for yourself versus working for a company?”
Devion: “The most difficult lesson I learned in 2018 about being self-employed versus working for a company as an employee was in order to take time off and still maintain your income, there must be automation for processes to continue to service existing clients, and to continue to connect with new customers.”
Me: “Tell us about your new Facebook network group and what are your plans for it in 2019?”
Devion: “In 2019, I intend for this community to provide a place for business owners to connect, collaborate, and support each other without concern for people engaging in deceptive business practices.
  Although this task may become difficult as the community grows, this will be the community’s primary focus, and should shape this group to be the “go to” place on the Facebook platform for business owners to successfully increase their sales.

Me: “Share an end of the year success story in your business?”
Devion: “It was my goal to assist members of my community with their online marketing. I assisted 15 individuals in the last quarter of 2018 get a better understanding of how to properly market their products and services online for under $100.”
Me: “What do you plan to accomplish by the end of 2019 with your business?”
Devion: “My goal for 2019 is to educate 200 business owners on how to effectively market their products and services online and increase their sales through online training and courses.”
Me: “In your network group, you are known for marketing through live videos and offering support to business owners, do you plan on expanding on that by doing any speaking engagements or seminars?”
Devion: “As the Black Business Networking Community grows, it may make sense to implement live events in markets where there are a large number of members.”
