Incredible Tiny Homes Founder Randy Jones is Today’s Honoree

Incredible Tiny Homes represents a dream to provide affordable and comfortable housing for everyone. Randy Jones founded Incredible Tiny Homes in Morristown, Tennessee in 2014 with a passion to pursue a professional standard of craftsmanship in the Tiny Home industry. Incredible Tiny Homes builds your home indoors at our not-so-tiny warehouse. We ensure the highest quality of craftsmanship, from beginning to end, as you work with us to customize and build your Incredible Tiny Home.

Given their tiny square footage, tiny homes are creating a huge impact on real estate markets. “Tiny home” and “tiny home living” is a new trend where homebuyers can build their own home at a significantly affordable cost than a conventional home. This movement which was originally a backlash towards consumerism, and started in the 80’s, has taken over the last few years and more and more people are not only choosing to live in a tiny home but to live in tiny home communities. Homeowners are freeing themselves from mortgages and the urge to keep up with the Joneses by building and purchasing a “tiny home.”

Randy Jones started his Incredible Tiny Home business using borrowed tools and has since built a business on helping people find a sense of pride in home ownership and minimalism. Randy has built over 100 homes and does so at a fraction of his competitor’s pricing.

Born Fanatic Author Michael McCormack is Today’s Honoree

About The Book:  The bond between a father and son can be just a special and unique as it is tumultuous and challenging. Add in a father whose attitude varies dependent upon the outcome of his pro-football career and the dynamic becomes all the more chaotic. This is the foundation for the story of Michael McCormack and his father in his April 2018 release, Born Fanatic: My Life in the Grip of the NFL.

From his first breath, McCormack’s life was football. As the oldest son of the world champion Cleveland Brown, former head coach to the Eagles and Seahawks, and NFL Hall of Famer with whom he shares the same name, McCormack has watched literally from the sidelines as his father’s career would make or break more than six hundred Sundays in his life. And these Sunday games just scratched the surface as McCormack began a lifelong journey as a ‘born fanatic’ in the cauldron of professional football.

No ordinary football memoir, in McCormack’s Born Fanatic, he offers a glimpse into his unique experience with football fanaticism, leaving fans and readers alike both nodding with understanding and surprised by his insights into one of America’s most beloved pastimes. Few individuals have learned about pro football from the classroom of life the way McCormack has and through his storytelling — woven with research and insights from his “insider perspective” — readers are given a deep look into what makes football fanatics tick and inspires them to meet the challenge of recovering the most important thing about pro football before it’s too late.

About The Author:  Oldest son and namesake of a world champion Cleveland Brown and NFL Hall of Famer, Michael McCormack is a lawyer, writer, speaker and, still to this day, pro football fanatic living outside of Seattle, WA. His wife, Melissa, and their blended family of five kids give him a hard time about his endless use of sports metaphors, but he gets the last laugh as the best fantasy footballer in the house. McCormack shares his lifelong journey in the grip of the NFL with his debut memoir, Born Fanatic.

Nigerian Singer/Songwriter MARENIKAE is Today’s Honoree

With a name as iconic as the culture she represents, MARENIKAE is the embodiment of West African pride and culture, fused with the glamour and sophistication of old Hollywood.The statuesque Nigerian singer/songwriter is beyond multi-talented with current projects ranging from music, to art to fashion. When asked how she manages to juggle multiple pursuits she suggests never being told she was limited.

MARENIKAE grew up in Nigeria and recalls writing songs and poetry as early as age fourteen. Her approach to songwriting stemmed from a fascination with spoken word and attending numerous poetry and writing workshops. MARENIKAE credits listening to great orators as the key to perfecting her songwriting skills. She discovered the melodic timing in spoken word resembled her natural writing style and translated to the melodies she discovered in song.

Growing up MARENIKAE was exposed to various types of music and cites a myriad of artists as influences; from Nigerian artists like 9ice, styl-plus, Dare Art-Alade,fela and plantashun boys all the way to the Backstreet Boys, Freddie Mercury, Daughtry, Dwele and Raheem Devaughn. Throughout her teen years she worked to create a signature sound relying heavily on neo-soul and afro-pop music..The end result is AFROMERGE a perfect blend of her beloved Nigerian Rhythms and neo soul with electronic and AC nuances throughout laced with a whole lot of attitude.

In an effort to distribute her own music and to assist other artists like herself, MARENIKAE founded “The Zuchia Nexus” an independent label geared towards becoming a meeting place for international producers, songwriters and artists to support each other while exchanging ideas and cross promoting.

As if being the flagship artist on her own label wasn’t enough, MARENIKAE also started a fashion line entitled, MAKAN GID’N. The urban line focuses on luxe
African wear with an urban twist. Much like its founder, MAKAN GID’N is a blend of West African culture meshed with urban streetwear. For MARENIKAE, MAKAN GID’N was her way of creating memorable costuming for her performances. The line represented her music perfectly and allowed her to create an atmosphere that would entertain and educate fans about her native homeland.

Today MARENIKAE is planning for the release of her debut album, titled AJEBUTTER (worthy of its own Afro-womanist socio-political conversation). She plans to return home to Nigeria for an additional press tour for the album.  She is looking to increase her fan base and find additional opportunities for “The Zuchia Nexus”. After debuting her MAKAN GID’N fall line in 2016 Ragtrade Atlanta, MARENIKAE is looking forward to introducing fashionistas across the country to a line that connects her heartland with the homeland.

Beauty Resides In My Image Founder Robin Barnes is Today’s Honoree

I would like to share with you the vision of how BRimi got started. Let me first start off by saying this vision came from God.

The story…

It all started when I was driving on 285, a highway in Atlanta, Georgia. I travel this highway five days a week. One day in 2006, I called my best friend and was talking with her on the phone about many things, but this day I brought up the subject about giving back. I said, “we go to work everyday for years, then one day it hits you, that you must give back.”

We’ve all been afforded a great life, with different journeys of change and challenges, but I felt like I had something to now offer, whether it was inspiring someone to be better, stronger, or kinder. I knew I had something. It was during that conversation, I realized I wanted to do something for girls. I’d noticed a change in how some girls were carrying themselves, as if their self-confidence was in jeopardy.

From that moment, my mind was thinking about what to do and how to do it. I initially thought about a name. With much thought, I started with different letters, but wanted “beauty” to be the focus of it, but ensuring that girls understood that the beauty I was speaking of referred to their OWN beauty (inside and out). After much thought and toiling, God sent me the name BRIMI (Beauty Resides In My Image). When this was given to me, I knew what it meant and that I needed to spread the word to girls and express to them that beauty does reside in their OWN image.

I told God that I could handle this mission, because I truly believed in the message and understood what he wanted me to do. He explained to me that my sole mission was to remind girls that they were made in the image that he created and not to second guess that.

To fast forward this story to 2013, I gathered a team together and thus BRimi was born. Although the vision was sent to me in 2006, I know now that I had more growing to do in preparation for this mission. I had to see the team I needed to work with revealed to me. I am clear that now is the time to share the BRIMI message with the world.

I want to “thank you” for taking the time to read this message and I hope you support BRimi too.
