Rodney Woodland happens to be one of the most promising businessmen that the past couple years has to offer. Despite the obstacles. Rodney has established Ballin Detroit, after many closed doors, a challenging journey, and a resilient entrepreneurial spirit.

CEO Rodney Woodland

Unique in a multitude of ways, Ballin Detroit is more than a clothing brand, which is evident through their familiar apparel. There is an ecosystem involving community service, financial literacy, and the growth has no limits. Founded in 2016, with headquarters at his personal apartment, Ballin Detroit started small, but with a big vision. Inspired by the late Nipsey Hussle, Rodney strives to do business directly to the consumer. By eliminating the middlemen, Ballin Detroit is able to provide a personal relationship, friendlier rates, and an overall better experience.

Although the target market includes everyone between the age of 18 to 60 years old, the first supporter was the CEO himself. There is no greater feeling than wearing your own brand company. Their signature apparel get great reactions from audiences, and the distinct styles and stylish logo make the look a must-have. Side note: collaborations are a huge request at the moment!

What’s new for Ballin Detroit? Sources say that the first capsule will release June-July, it is rumored. We can expect nothing but stellar quality, exactly what the CEO aims for and has been providing since 2016.

“I’m really excited about the future and really just how far I came,” says Rodney. “this all just really started from a thought and a lot of ambition.”

Source: LA Weekly

A Los Angeles Empire

Disrupt Magazine is one of the most popular media outlets to shed light on emerging entrepreneurs. With great pride, the Jibawi brothers of a successful family business were able to tell their story. Bluemoon is a high end brand that has branched out into several avenues. Some of their most high-end clients, 6lack, Blueface, NLE Choppa, Lil Moset, CJ, and many others, are familiar with the five star Bluemoon brand the Jibawi brothers have built.

Bluemoon is multi-faceted and has branched out to multiple avenues: a luxe hookah lounge, kitchen apparel, successful five star jeweler, and more. It is a brand proving the family’s entrepreneurial skills, ideas, and combined efforts. The men behind the success are Anas, Omar, Wisam, Mohammed, and Malik Jibawi—all determined to leave a legacy. According to other sources, Omar was able to give the public insight on the Bluemoon mission and accolades. Get ready Los Angeles, because Bluemoon will become a household name.

Omar, one of the six brothers, gave public statements highlighting a glimpse of the rise of Bluemoon.

Let’s start from the beginning. What was the inspiration behind Bluemoon?

The hookah lounge was created based on our heritage. Smoking hookah was and is a tradition in our culture, and we wanted to open our own and bring out our friends. 

The jewelry business came from pawn shops. When I was 19, I ran 13 pawn shops around the Los Angeles area. Most of my brothers ran a pawn shop by themselves and the other shops were being run by various friends and other family members. When the shops started to slow down, I used the money I had to open a jewelry company where we can custom make every piece. At first it was hard, but now 100% of the parts that make up our jewelry pieces are made in house.

Anwar’s Kitchen was opened on the heels of his successful YouTube Career. Anwar first started with Vine and eventually rose to have millions of followers. Once the Vine era ended, he transitioned to YouTube and Instagram. Fast forward to today and he has more than 30 million followers across all platforms.”

That’s incredible. Highlight the main goal of Bluemoon, we’d love to know.

 “The goals of all our businesses is to expand and for them to become household names. Not just in Los Angeles, but the world.”

A support system is key to entrepreneurs. Is there anyone you’d like to credit?

“Our mother. She raised us all by herself in Los Angeles. We’ve all been in trouble more times than we can count and she kept us on our toes. We don’t know how we could ever repay her.”

What’s next for Bluemoon?

Their empire is just getting started, and it is their blend of culture, ideas, and dedication that has given power to the Bluemoon name.

Why do people choose to do bad things? Is there really an evil entity constantly trying to get us to do wrong? And if so, what is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? So many great questions, and we are ready to talk about them. Like a rose that has sprung up from the concrete, rap artist DIMI D has overcome many odds in his own life and has fought his way through the trials and temptations that have tried to take him out. Sometimes things happen in our lives that are out of our control, and the only thing we can do is try our best to move past them. Sadly, in many cases, the hardships that people face in this life have a hardening effect on the way they view the world and those living in it. We often times spiral in a downward direction due to the hardships in our life because hardships often leave a negative impact on the way we think and the way we feel. DIMI D has encountered many experiences throughout his life that could have killed him in the blink of an eye. He understands the mindset of living life on a path to self destruction. The pain in DIMI D’s life caused him to become a rebel who wanted nothing more to live life on his own terms without any rules or regulations from those in a position of higher authority. Sadly, being a rebel has a way of disconnecting us from both God and the people God has sent to be helpful to us in our lives. 

DIMI D is a name we have seen in headlines a lot in the past year. His gift in music and passion for God continues to make room for him in the music world. And just like DIMI D, we all have questions pertaining to our existence. What is life? Why I am I here? Is there life after death? Why do bad things happen to good people? Does God really exist? These are some of the most prominent questions being talked about in our world today, and if we’re not careful, we might find ourselves listening to the wrong people telling us the wrong answers. The truth is, people all over the world are in great distress and they are looking for answers that can help ease their troubled minds. 

The Project “Rebel Turned Angel” is based on the true story of how DIMI D went from being a very lost and troubled youth to becoming a much more productive individual whose mind and heart began to heal as he shifted his focus to follow God instead of the ways of this world. The record is filled with relatable stories and life lessons that are geared towards helping others understand that they are not alone. DIMI D wanted to unveil his personal hardships in lyrical format so that someone might be able to hear his story and find hope for their own life situations.

“Rebel Turned Angel” has a Boom Bap east coast style that is smothered with a West Coast vibe. As you listen to the project through your headphones, you will quickly see that everything DIMI D had to go through was a stepping stone to increase his faith and to draw him closer to the God who called him out of darkness into His marvelous Light. DIMI D credits every good thing in his life to the God who bled and died for his sins and for ours. Just like everyone else, the rapper had choices he had to make along his journey. It was up to him to decide whether or not he was going to allow the bad things that happened dictate the direction he was going to travel throughout the rest of his life. Unfortunately, DIMI D chose the wrong path for many years and ended up paying a hard price for his decisions. However, when he finally came to himself and realized that he needed to give his life and all the issues in it over to God, he was finally able to begin picking up the pieces and allowing God to heal the pain he endured as a young boy growing up on the streets of California.  

What is life? “Life is a God given gift that each of us have been blessed to experience.” Why are we here? “We are here to learn the truth, and by learning that truth we can be set free and forgiven of our wrong doings. Then, we can allow God to use our lives so that He can reach others with the same truth that has the power to save them as forgive their wrong doings as well.” Is there life after death? “Yes! Absolutely. There is life after death, and God refers to it as eternity, a life that is without end. However, the issue is that there are only two destinations we can go to after we die. We can either put our faith and trust in the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ which gives us the right to be forgiven of all of our sins, or we can choose to forfeit our opportunity to be saved and spend eternity in the Lake of Fire with the Devil and his angels. It is completely up to us and we have the power to make our and utterly our choice to choose which end we want to inherit.” Why do bad things happen to good people? “Simple. We live in a broken world that is full of sin and people that are disobedient to God’s will. Since sin is a destructive demonic nature, there isn’t really a way to find eternal hope, peace, or protection outside of the covering of God Almighty.” Why do people choose to do bad things? “Well, the reason people choose to do bad things is because sin lives in the members of their body. This causes people to lean towards disobedience to God, which ultimately causes consequences that can cause us to experience extreme hardships and various types of physical and emotional pain. This is why God wants us to trust and obey Him, so that we can avoid many hardships and learn to thrive in both this life and throughout eternity.” Is there really an evil entity that is constantly trying to get us to do wrong? “Yes, the Bible calls that entity Satan. God says that Satan roams around like a roaring Lion seeking whom he may devour. Satan cannot devour us unless we choose to let him. The problem is people are constantly making decisions, that by default, give Satan legal grounds to harass them and wreak havoc in their lives.” What is the entity that is trying to convince us to do what’s right? “God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son, and the Holy Spirit of the living God. The Holy Trinity. These 3 persons who exist as the Godhead that make up the fulness of who God actually is. When we feel the nudge or we feel the thoughts to do what is right, that’s God’s voice speaking to us. The more we choose to trust and obey God’s word, the more His favor and grace will shine in and through our lives for the whole world to see. This heavenly light inside of us will produce good deeds that are done on the outside through out behaviors and choices, which then cause people to see those good deeds and give thanks to the one true God for His goodness and mercy. Amen!”

It’s always nice to have good music you can vibe with. But it’s even better when you find great music you can vibe with! Wouldn’t you agree?

Introducing DIMI D, an upcoming CHH Artist based in the heart of Fontana, CA. Ever since DIMI D was a young boy, his heart was always filled with a love for music. Everywhere he went, he would always sing the lyrics to his favorite songs. Once the young rapper reached the age of middle school, he developed a passion for free styling. This was the chapter in his life when he realized music was the path he wanted to pursue.

Although DIMI D had a passion for music, he struggled with the thought of people looking down on him for being a Christian Rapper. He didn’t want people to think that his music was weak just because it reflected his faith in the God. Unfortunately, most Christian content over the years has caught a bad wrap. This is primarily do to the fact that Christians haven’t really had a strong budget to work with. However, a lot has changed over the years, and now Christians are investing thousands and even millions into entertainment projects. PSYCHO is simply one of those songs that proves you can still go hard as a Christian without using any profanity or forms of vulgar language.

We decided to reach out to DIMI D and asked him why he chose to do music? This was his response: “I do music for the people who feel like they don’t belong. I also do it for the people who love West Coast music and R&B. I want my music to relate to people who might have a similar story as me. If my music can relate to someone else’s life, than i’ve reached my goal. If it doesn’t, then I guess my songs will simply be normal tracks like everyone else.”

DIMI D was introduced to God when he was just a little boy. The concept of God and the truth of the Bible always seemed to just make sense to him. However, there were many times along the way when his adversary the Devil tried to attack him in hopes of destroying his life. But praise to be God the Devils plans never succeeded! DIMI D wants the world to know that he is grateful to God for saving his life and blessing him with a family that truly cares about his walk with the Lord. Music and Jesus mean so much to him. As a matter of fact, the rising rap artist emphatically credits his musical abilities to the Lord Jesus Christ. “Without God, I would not be able to make music that has a positive impact on people’s lives.”

So, what it the song PSYCHO actually about? The rapper told us that: “My song PSYCHO speaks to the idea that once I step into the booth and approach the mic, I spit the craziest lyrics and hottest bars I can come up with. So in that sense, you can kind of say that my music is somewhat Psychotic in that way. I really enjoyed producing the music to this song. It kinda has a scary vibe to it, but the other elements I mixed in really makes the track go hard.”

Most people who vibe with the CHH music genre know that it is very uncommon for Christian Rap Artists to land movie placements. And the artists who have landed movie placements, are most always signed to record deals with semi to well-known recording labels. But, every now and then the world gets to witness a few rare individuals who rise up from the ashes, miraculously beat the odds, and blaze a trail of eye capturing victory right in front of the people who hoped they wouldn’t succeed. Well, today we are beyond excited to talk about two extraordinary individuals that fall directly into that category.

Many of you may already know this particular powerhouse. It is no secret that his career has been a pretty inspiring phenomenon within the CHH industry for nearly a decade. Shockingly, even major secular music execs have complimented his work and praised his astounding achievements. Dominic Bonsignore, more commonly known as the rap artist “Harmini”, is a professional independent rap artist, songwriter, actor, model, and film producer. His humility, hard work, dedication, and faith have not only caused him to acquire top tier skills as an international recording artist, but have also made him an extremely high profile contact within the music business. Out of all the numbers in your phone that get deleted, if you are fortunate enough to have Harmini’s, guard it with your life!

As fate would have it, living on the other side of the United States of America another dynamic gem piece in the music industry was discovered. His talent was often overlooked and discredited by the people around him, especially to the well known artists within the CHH music genre. That is, until he met Harmini. We would like to introduce to you a rising voice in the CHH music community who goes by the name “P.O.G. The MC For Christ”. At the time Harmini connected with this humble, gifted, God loving Buffalo, NY rapper, P.O.G. was weary and struggling to keep hope alive. Which is understandable when your constantly overlooked by the same people who yell “Lets unify! We support you! Lets unify! We support you!” at their shows, but then completely neglect you as soon as they walk off stage. Sadly, most of the prominent names you know in CHH are just that – a two-faced show. But Harmini took the time to both encourage and call out the gifts inside of “P.O.G. The MC For Christ”. And when the opportunity came up for Harmini to write another movie track, he teamed up with the Buffalo artist and they co-wrote an amazing single titled “BAD FOLKS.

So, what is the synopsis of this feature film titled “BAD FOLKS”? And how does the song “BAD FOLKS” tie into the movie? Well, the film is a murder mystery by MGI films and the story takes place inside of a city bar room. There are a total of eight people in this bar. All of which are considered to be “Bad Folk”. One of the individuals at the bar managed to commit a murder without being seen. Now, none of them are able to leave until the real killer is uncovered and the murder mystery is solved. Everyone inside the bar is a suspect, and none of them want to fess up to the killing. The song “BAD FOLKS” ties in very well, and quite honestly in our opinion, is really genius. The song has an intriguing intro that sets up the mood for the record. Harmini starts off the song by saying: “8 Bad Folk. 1 bar. 1 murder. Everyone’s a suspect”. Then the chorus drops addressing the topic of prayer, as a form of direction and encouragement to the innocent who are being interrogated as suspects. The song is also clearly addressing all people everywhere all around the world who have fallen on hard times.

Chorus lyrics: “PRAY! When you feel alone and nobody understands what you’re going through PRAY! When the walls close in and you got nowhere to go, boy you know you better PRAY! When the world starts trippin and nobody seems to listen that’s when you gotta PRAY! You gotta PRAY! You gotta PRAY!”. This was actually a very clever approach, especially since the song doesn’t feel “preachy” at all, even though in a lot of ways – it’s PREACHING! The song highlights the life of godless people in society, classifying them within the category of being “Bad Folk”. These are the people in society who choose to live in a way that both violates (and breaks) the law, puts the lives of innocent people in harms way, and causes drama and discord within our communities. The entire song, although wrapped in the story of a murder mystery, is clearly teaching people to “seek God” and “Pray” when life gets hard. And it also highlights the fact that living life as a rebel isn’t the way to go, even though the culture continues to teach society that it is. So yeah, like we said, pure Genius! Harmini and P.O.G The MC for Christ definitely “murdered” that track!

The song was well received by the public, and has went on to encourage tens of thousands of people who absolutely love the dynamics of the newly released single and the positive message that it delivers. The ONLY negative review we could find searching the web, came from one group of individuals on the Guerilla Cross “SPEAK LIFE” Radio Show. Which is ironic, because their very name suggests that they would be first in line to “Speak Life” over the record. Go figure. Nevertheless, their opinion crashed and burned as the “BAD FOLKS” movie track was praised by the masses and went on to produce over 80,000 streams in the first nine months of it’s release. WOW!!

Introducing Moesha Buckholtz, who is better known by her fans as “MO_OX5″. Moesha is an upcoming inspirational female Christian rap artist currently residing in Deerfield Beach, Florida. The upcoming star is by no means ashamed to tell people about her faith, or about her music. The truth of the matter is, Jesus saved her life! And now she wants the whole world to know about it, so that others experience the same glorious transformation she did. Moesha enjoys a lot of things, but there is nothing she loves more than writing music and spreading the good news about her Lord and Savior – Jesus Christ.

Moesha Buckholtz “MO_OX5″ came into this world on June 14, 1998. But, little did she know that a deathly sickness was going to consume her body, causing her to nearly die before she ever had the chance to live. The sickness she encountered was caused by the improper care of her birth mother. However, when God has a plan for your life, not even death itself can hold its grip on you! Moesha not only recovered from her deathly illness, she bounced back stronger than anyone ever expected. And she continues to give God all the glory for saving her!

As the years began to pass by, MO_OX5 began to recognize that God had something special in store for her future. It was no coincidence that her life was preserved as an infant. God had a purpose for saving her. Moesha became filled with the Holy Spirit, and when that happened she began to walk out God’s plan for her life. During the course of her journey, she developed a strong passion for music, not knowing that it was actually going to be a life raft that would save her through some of the darkest times of her life. But where on earth did this musical passion come from? Well, the truth is it derived from her other family members. Growing up, Moesha witnessed her mom constantly singing around their home. And her other siblings also had various musical gifts and abilities. Such as playing the keyboard and jamming on the drums. Through this melodically permeated atmosphere, Moesha developed a sincere love for music. Over the years, she also learned how to play the drums. And now she plays them every week at New beginnings Worship Center. Which is the same church she’s been going to since she was a toddler.

One of the newest songs written by the singer/songwriter “MO_OX5” is titled “TESTIMONY”. The title of the song seemed to be a statement regarding her faith. But, we wanted to be sure before we started writing a story about it. So, we reached out to Moesha hoping to obtain some personal perspective regarding her new single. Once we were able to contact her, we quickly gained some insight as to what the song was about. She told us that: “The song “TESTIMONY” is the story surrounding the events of my early life as a new born baby. The lyrics speak to the reality that I could have died before I even had the chance to really live. I also credit my survival to the God I love and serve, because I know that if it hadn’t been for Him, I would not be here right now. God always knows what is best for us, therefore it is vital that we choose to trust Him and obey Him. The more that we set apart our lives apart for the Lord, the easier it is to hear Him speak to us. Which then allows us to walk in His purpose, and to understand what we are supposed to do next in our personal journey of faith”.

“Star Dust” by Rising Author J.M. Pozon is a Must Read

Who is the woman behind the book “Star Dust”; one of this year’s most prolific reads? You may have seen her? If you haven’t, well then, you’ve been living under a rock, because lately, she has been all over the press.  As seen on Fox, NBC and CBS.   And, featured in multiple magazines, media and newspaper outlets. From the covers of Black Women Rising magazine, Writer’s Life Magazine to the LA Tribune.

Well, who is she?

Jovahna Marie, better known by her pen name is a four-time published, award winning author, who has taken the literary world by storm. She first garnered acclaim with her fiery romance novel “Setting Fire to the Darkness.” And her gritty and soulful, poetry book “Whiskey for the wounded.” Which received five stars and was regarded by the “Urban Reader” as a spiritual catharsis in written words. Striking again, Author J .M Pozon Released two more poetry books this year. Her highly acclaimed book “Star Dust,” which has been deemed as a hymn to spirituality and women empowerment.  And of course, the Steamy, hot, erotic poetry book, “Passion Fruit”; that has everyone talking. Both books can be found on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.

Still, want to know more? Well, lucky for you, we caught up with Author J. M Pozon and we asked her a few questions. You can check out her answers below.

Q. Please tell us about your latest book, “Star Dust: From Heaven to Earth, We Fall.” What made you write it, and what is it about?

A. Well, I wanted to use my words, poems, and quotes to take women on a journey of spiritual Awakening and self-enlightenment. As far as what it is about, Star Dust is a call to action, prompting women to remember and operate in their truest forms. The poems and quotes contained within the book serve to remind women of their worth, encouraging them to see themselves as more than flesh and bones. We are soul, spirit and energy, limited only by our earthly bodies. It teaches us to acknowledge ourselves as spiritual beings, accepting the fact that within our fleshly domains, an entire universe resides. And once we understand the power, we hold within us, we can draw it out, use it to manifest all our hearts wants and desires.

Q. What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?

A. Find your purpose, operate wholeheartedly within that purpose. Don’t dip your toes, instead dive in headfirst and give it everything you have. Have unwavering faith in your dreams, refrain from internalized judgment, skepticism and doubt. You have to truly believe in your dreams before anyone else will.

Q. Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?

For me, it is about using my God -given talent and gifts, using them to inspire others. I don’t measure success by how much money I have made but instead by how many lives I have touched.

Q. What’s next for you?

A. As of late, I’ve been doing much more screenwriting and acting. So, you can definitely expect to see some of my movie projects in the near future.

Finally, how can people connect with you if they want to learn more.

She became pregnant at the age of 15 without anybody else having knowledge of it and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl the same week he mom found out she was pregnant. With the help of her mom and community, everybody came together and made sure the baby was taken care of for at least 2 years with all of the essentials a baby requires.

This act of kindness led to the birth of a beautiful organization in 2017, A Girl Like Me Inc. Tyra had the intention of paying the help forward to other girls who may be in the same situation as her ever since she received that support. This is a testament to her amazing character. Her organization’s goal is to educate and encourage girls and young mothers to make healthy life choices through classes and mentorship provided through the organization.

By Mayes Marketing Agency

Meet Jay CEO

Jay CEO is one of the newest artists out of Detroit, MI. He possesses a unique sound that’s different from the traditional Detroit style, which he aims to bring major recognition to the city’s rap game in many ways. Outside of rapping, Jay is also the CEO/Founder of X-Clusive Shoots Photography and TwistedXclusives, a video media company. Through his amazing capability Jay has worked with some of Detroit’s top artists and has created an impressive resume with names such as Snap Dogg, Neisha Neshae, Pablo Skywalkin, and DJBJ. 

A Versatile Business Professional

With all the things Jay CEO is involved in, he still allocates time to help his community by also giving back to it. YESORG was founded in 2018 on the bases of mentorship for youth in the city of Detroit. We have to say we are highly impressed with YESORG and Jay CEO for taking that major initiative at such a young age; we hope many others follow in his footsteps.

Building his name as a popular videographer, Jay CEO has always had a passion for rapping, stemming from his writing/poetry background; this acted as a major inspiration for leaping into the music industry under the artist category. 

The filming for his single “525 Mins”


Jay CEO is currently in album mode with the anticipation of his debut album Powerful Beyond Measure (inspired by the film Coach Carter) set to release in the fall of 2020.

He looks to build off his 2 debut singles “Only Human” & “525 mins Ft. JV & Fetti Fuego”, which both have been fairly successful. “525 mins” landed Jay on iHeartRadio and was also featured heavily on the MNTC Radio show The Power Hour

Official video for “525 Mins”

Icon in the Making

Jay CEO is definitely here to stay! We look forward to seeing him add a new sound to Detroit’s identity and love that he now has two footprints in the industry: one behind the camera and one in front of it. It’s safe to say Jay CEO’s career is very promising and we look forward to hearing more about him as he gets closer to his album release date. Stay tuned.

Building Companies, Brands, and People.

At just 19, Luke Hyde started Drive Digital Advertising that guides companies, brands, and entrepreneurs through the world of digital ads and more. Currently, the internet has never been more useful.

Why not start an online business?

Everything is online now. Malls are going out of business. Stores are going bankrupt. Do not be surprised if a majority of businesses operate online-only in the future.

Luke’s services range from advertising to online marketing tools and strategies. The greatest value, however, is getting professional guidance from a successful online business that has already been through the process.

Drive Digital Advertising was founded in October of 2019. Through trial and error and skillful strategies, Drive Digital Advertising hit $10k in monthly revenue just recently. Luke’s motto?

Luke is a graduate of Lakeview High School.

I used to be a janitor and to pass the time I would listen to podcasts. Eventually, I found some about online marketing, and it really sparked my interest. After diving deep into it, I found out that there were individuals who were willing to pay for my services. I also found out that there were other young people doing similar things, so I thought, ‘Hey, if they can do it, I can too!’ Now that I have been successful, I want to inspire others with my story and show them how they can do it too.

Luke Hyde, founder of Drive Digital Advertising

Its founder, Brittani, has been candle making for years, but her entrepreneurial spirit inspired her to create a business out of her hobby.

Photos from website. Her products are placed in front of Downtown Detroit scenery.

She suffered from migraines, and aromatherapy candles were one of the few treatments to give her a sense of relief. However, the ingredients of the big boxed branded candles she was buying consisted of lots animal by-products & toxins. (Yuck!) From there, she began to research a cleaner, and more effective way to make to even better candles. She found her niche & has been unstoppable with her candle making.

After graduating from Renaissance, a “Blue Ribbon School” and one of the top high schools, she studied at Wayne State University. She eventually graduated from Davenport University with a major in Business Management. (How fitting!) Her college education played a major part in her business success, but it is the natural born leader in her that fueled the flame, no pun intended.

Fun fact: She is the Editor-in-Chief of The Detroit Entrepreneur!

They are handmade to order, from the best grades of soy wax available, paired with cotton wicks.

How ‘Moorestyle’ is Restoring Confidence One Strand at a Time – Interview With CEO Frederick Moore

The Mission Statement

Moorestyle is a local salon that specializes in areas very few are skilled at. Founded in 2018 by “the hair artist” Frederick Moore, the Paul Mitchell graduate uses his versatile skills for a better cause. The mission statement of Moorestyle is, “restoring confidence one strand at a time.” With his successful salon and years of honoring the mission statement, Moorestyle is known for restoring the confidence of many. So what’s his unique specialization? Wigs. In other words, custom units and installments.

Providing for both men and women, Moorestyle creates custom wigs to ensure clients look and feel their best. The best part is that the people that enter the salon walk out with the confidence they may have lost due to hair loss. Although female hair care services are common, the same type of care for men is not. This is what makes Moorestyle one of a kind.

Interview with the CEO: Frederick Moore

What made you start Moorestyle?


While attending school, I always sought out additional education opportunities. During this time, I took a non-surgical hair restoration class to learn how to install hair units for people experiencing hair lost due to cancer, alopecia, and numerous other conditions. After taking the class and learning all the new techniques, I was eager to put them to the test. However, since I was a student, I lacked the clientele to actually perform the service, so I began to practice on mannequins and post my work on social media.

I began to receive a lot of positive feedback and eventually I had many people contacting me from out of state inquiring about the work I was doing. That caused me to think outside the box and figure out a way to service these people. Through much trial and error, I took the techniques that I learned from the class and tweaked them so that I could start making wigs to send to clients.

Originally, when I started Moorestyle, it was a way for me to express my creativity through hair without just being a regular hairstylist. The number of messages that I receive from clients thanking me for giving them the confidence to live a normal live and be social without the shame of people staring at them or having to cover their heads to avoid stares truly keeps me going.

Now that I am a licensed cosmetologist in Michigan and Georgia, I have been able to teach classes to other professionals, so that they can also offer these services to their clients. I believe in using my blessings to be a blessing to others.

Any personal tips for emerging entrepreneurs?


My biggest tip for running a successful business and being an entrepreneur is to set goals, put things in writing, and set goal dates. This has been very beneficial to me in my business. This allows you to physically see the task you need to complete to reach your goal and to organize them instead of just having a million thoughts floating around in your head.

The Reading Revolutionary: Mrs. Candice Williams, Founder of Urby Education

During the Civil Rights Movement, The Black Panther Party sought social justice for African Americans and other oppressed communities through a combination of revolutionary theory, education, and community programs. (Au, 2001) Today, Candice Williams, alongside her sons, fight against illiteracy within the black community with her online reading program, Urby Education.

Urby Education was founded in 2018 after M-STEP reading scores in Detroit made headlines. Scores were so low, Detroit was nickamed “the illiterate city.”

Being a native Detroiter and an educator for 11 years, Williams decided it was the time to be a part of the solution. Going into business wasn’t just business as usual for her, it was personal because as an adolescent she too struggled with literacy.

“Illiteracy was a shot to my self-esteem, costly, created significant challenges in my education, and it creates a pipeline to poverty and prison, but education is the way out.”

Candice Williams
What We Don't Learn About the Black Panther Party — but Should ...

Believing that it takes a village to fight against illiteracy, she developed her own curriculum called Shaping Phonics, that uses a multi-sensory approach to learning by incorporating hands on material, like shapes, to bring learning to life.

They also provide support for parents through online courses and coaching services so they can be literacy coaches at home. Children too are supported through their reading intervention services, taught by certified instructors that Williams trains and Urby provides.

Fighting against illiteracy, especially in the black community, it’s especially important for Williams to be involved in every aspect of the business. For her it wasn’t just about our stories that aren’t being told and taught in schools, but it’s about having the autonomy to change the narrative, teach what she wants and how she wants. It’s about creating a solution that fights systemic racism that plagues urban school districts and overcoming the challenges that a lack of funding creates in providing an education to black students.

Wanting to ensure that her children didn’t fall victim to the same challenges that illiteracy caused her, Williams made it her mission to teach her sons to read all before Kindergarten. Building Urby, she used her children as proof that her system works.

The prodigy, Mr. J. Williams of Urby Education

Her son reading so fluently so young has caught the attention of many on social media. Soon he took interest in her videos and teaching so he was hired. He’s the youngest teacher hired today at only 3 years old; now over 1,300 parents from 90 different countries tune in to be taught by the prodigy himself.

In striving to provide students with an education, her sons were also learning the value of hard work behind entrepreneurship. They’ve been involved in the creative processes, learned about creating multiple streams of income, perseverance, resilience, and seen disappointments too but Williams positivity has remained a beacon of hope for them along the way.

Williams is now working on a myriad of projects to give people access to her programs. She’s working to have her online program implemented in school districts across the country and hosts a show called, Black Literacy on Trend, it infuses trending topics, culture, and of course literacy. The show airs live on Instagram Tuesdays at 6 pm, EST.

Follow Williams and her sons on their incredible journey to change the face of education for the black community. You can find them on Facebook, YouTube, and Instagram @urbyeducation. Check out their website and online store at .   

Zsa Zsa Hubbard – Yes, She Said It.

Biography Contributor: Zsa Zsa C. Hubbard


Zsa Zsa C. Hubbard is a different breed. Yes, I said it. As a female entrepreneur, she inspired me from the start. But I have not come across a woman that has accomplished and overcome the impossible. She is a podcast host, brand ambassador, wedding officiant, international keynote speaker, actress, founder, business consultant, mentor, and featured in Speakers Magazine. As a role model to her fans, Zsa Zsa has a lot to say.

In the form of a true self-made business woman, Zsa Zsa used her immense persona to meet a need and edify the community in her own way. As a born and raised Detroit native, her natural inclination to hustle has earned her the marque of an entrepreneur at-large, owning and operating as a CEO of multiple businesses. Zsa Zsa is currently using her voice and Specs Howard degree in broadcast media to engage and educate as a radio talk show host on an internet-radio platform. Zsa Zsa sparks candid conversations about all things Detroit every Thursday at 12:30pm EST on “Yeah, I Said It!”, a weekly internet radio show.

One of my favorite episodes. @YouKnowZsaZsaHubbard


Zsa Zsa has used her innate business savvy and connectivity to form The Hubbard Resource Group, a business hub that offers consulting and non-profit development resources. She then became deputized by the city of Detroit clerk as a wedding Officiant and opened a private wedding officiating and vow renewal service called United Vows.

due to unforeseen tragedy, she witnessed the lack of information and resources available for families of loved ones with incapacitating diseases and health challenges. Zsa Zsa started Kelly’s Kids Foundation, a resource, advocacy, and events program for families with debilitated loved ones, in honor of her late mother, Kelly Hubbard. The foundation hosts “Hustle for your Heart Hustle-Thon”, an annual fundraiser for low income families with disabled family members.
