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.
Me: “Where are you from?”
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 DevionAyers.com.”
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.”

Me: “What social links and business pages can our readers learn more about your company?”
Devion: “Interested individuals may learn more about how to make their first $100 online at DevionAyers.com. You may also request membership on Facebook at the “Black Business Networking Community.“ There is no discrimination here. Just looking for individuals that either own or support black owned businesses.bbnc

Me:             “What started you on the path of becoming an entrepreneur?”
Latasha:    “Initially, I wanted to develop a business that my family and I could do and have fun at the same time, but as time went on I learned that my family did not support the vision.  As time went on the Lord blessed me to accept the things I could not change and go at it on my own.”
Me:             “What kind of business(s) do you own and what is your mission?”
Latasha:    “I own Many Skirts Life Coaching, it is an agency with a mission to help women entrepreneurs and leaders relate to their body, their soul, and spirit by providing them solutions they need to meet their beauty, emotional, financial, health and relationship goals.  We have been managing projects in the Kansas City area for over 7 years but fully launch in April 2019.”

Latasha:      “My goal in life to be proof that God can move mountains. I want women to know that they can build empires if they keep going no matter what they see in front of them.  It doesn’t matter where they are from, if they want it, go for it.  Don’t let themselves or others count them out.”
                        “I see myself very busy in five years…..

Me:                  “What is something you would tell your followers about becoming an entrepreneur?”
Latasha:        “Brand is important and don’t be afraid to make mistakes, just keep going.”
     I want to thank Latasha for doing this interview with me.  I am always inspired from those who work from the bottom up and see themselves achieving everything they set out to do no matter what seems impossible to others.
