  • Tinesha & Kelley welcome Timika Massey for fun and educational talk about financial freedom and understanding the power of credit.

    More from Timika:

    In 2006, after moving from my hometown Jersey City, I pursued home ownership in West Orange NJ.

    Due to my poor credit profile it took me over a year to become eligible for a mortgage loan. After nearly being ripped off of thousands by one person and an extended exaggerated process with another company, I decided to begin the arduous task of repairing my own credit.
    It was time consuming, overwhelming, painstaking and needless to say a very lengthy process. But I did it! I raised my score significantly allowing me to become a homeowner.
    I completed my 23 year career track in education as an Education Administrator serving as Director of Education. I embraced many staff members and parents who also aspired to increase their credit score in order to live a more abundant life. New homes, better apartments, new car, a credit card with more than $300 limit, or just a new zip code is what many of them desired. All of us had experienced the term "denied" and never wanted to be turned down again.

    Confirming that we all experienced similar pitfalls in our lives due to lack of education, I partnered with Financial Education Services (FES) and started a credit and financial education business.

    My company offers, a multiproduct program called the "Protection Plan". This service includes 11 unique financial products specializing in credit restoration. It's affordable, efficient, educationally sound and proven success with an A+ rating with the BBB.

    Today your credit score is like your vital sign. It let's creditors know how alive and "kicking" you are. No one should forever be crippled by the mistakes made in the past. I pride myself in not only increasing credit profiles but helping families and communities across the country become well informed about credit and live the life they deserve.

    Free consultation for individuals, families, groups and organizations can be arranged at www.fesconnect.net/TMassey

  • Tinesha & Kelley Welcome Davita Galloway of Dupp & Swat for a talk about self care, vulnerability and Crohn's Disease.

    Davita Galloway attended UNCC, where she received an MSPH, and Parsons The New School for Design in New York. Having created dupp&swat — a creative studio named ‘1 of 100 Things to Do in Charlotte’ — with her brother, Dion, a product of A&T, they are involved in all forms and facets of creative expression ranging from fashion show production to poetry events, from wardrobe styling to photo shoots with a celebrity clientele and much more. Their studio is a ‘safe place’ for creatives and serves as a platform for expression as the venue is often used for small, intimate events/workshops, etc. Recently listed as one of the Top 10 Players in Charlotte via Charlotte Agenda and as one of the three features in Posh Partners via SouthPark Magazine, the sibling duo plays a significant role in Charlotte’s cultural scene.

    As a team, the duo continues to produce. In Autumn 2014, they launched a quarterly production entitled SPREAD—which is another ode to expression. This lifestyle magazine embodies their young, vibrant spirit and is chock-full of quirky columns, graphic visuals and needed nostalgia. In short, in the magazine realm, it’s a breath of fresh air and can be found in various markets. The brother-sister team can also be found ‘arting the city’ with their latest venture and nonprofit, CrownKeepers. With the mission to provide hands-on training, as well as art and trade-based education to those lacking creative and entrepreneurial opportunities, CrownKeepers pledges to create platforms and tangible goods through a holistic experience for the benefit of the public.

    More, Davita, having served as Lead Stylist for Africa Fashion Week New York for several years, and as the resident costumer for On Q Productions, believes that wardrobe is paramount in the self-expression arena. She was also recently featured on Black Wednesday’s blog as one of thirteen influencers in the fashion community.

    Davita is also one-half of Nita&Vita, a YouTube series dedicated to delivering the ‘raw and real’ and is bountiful in #GirlPower. Using the nomenclature, SincerelySwat, Davita is aggressively pursuing her passions and is genuinely happy in doing so.
