Embracing My God Given Talent

My name is Yevonda "Squeaky" London, I am a native of Silas, AL. In a community called Shady Grove.  I am a licensed cosmetologist and the owner of MzTrackmaster's Hair Studio in Gilbertown, AL. I can't say that as a child, I dream of being a hairstylist, to be honest I didn't know what I wanted to be when I grew up.  As a young girl I was always combing in my hair and got good at it started doing my sisters hair and others as well, but it still wasn't something I desired to do as a career. I became a mother at a very young age, and the only thing I wanted to do was get an education to work and make money. After having so many dead end jobs, I decided this is not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I enrolled in medical school to pursue a career in the medical field as a medical assistant and phlebotomy. I graduated and started working at a hospital for a few years, but I still felt in my heart this wasn't for me. I yearned for more. 

Once again, I enrolled in college, but this time, it was for cosmetology, and after three months, I dropped out.  I felt like I wouldn't succeed at it, because there were already stylists established in the area. After that I enrolled  back in college to pursue a career in X-Ray, I graduated, but the yearning for hair kept surfacing. I told myself "okay, I'm going to try this hair thing, one more time". I fell in love. I stuck it out and I begin to become great at it.  I built up my clientele at school, and after graduating. After graduation my clients followed me to my salon.  I knew in my heart this is what God wanted me to do. It makes me so happy to groom ladies, and make them feel beautiful. What I have is a God given talent. It wasn't taught, and I grateful to God everyday.  Becoming a hairstylist changed my life for the better and there's no place I'd rather be. I never thought in a million years, that I would be successful in the hair industry. I know that God is still not done with me.  I give all the praises to Him, because none of this would be possible!  When everyone else doubted me, God kept me, and I never gave up. He stayed by my side through it all and is still here. I can go on and on about how amazing God is because when you look at me, you're looking at a miracle. When you look at my success you're looking at the work of God and He gets all the credit.

To my clients: I love you guys with all my heart and without God, and you guys there would be no "MzTrackmaster". Thank you all...!!!!

To the young ladies that are considering becoming an hairstylist: "Go for it" Just remember to keep God first and always remain humble, and you will succeed. GOD BLESS!

Featuring Tea Town in Montgomery, AL

Written By: Felecia Causey Tea Town is a family-owned restaurant located in Montgomery, AL.  It’s in a great location right off Vaughn Road, close to the AMC movie theater. The first thing that caught my attention was how clean it was.  I enjoyed how peaceful it seemed.  Oh, my goodness, my readers and followers know how important good customer service is to me.  The entire family that was there was so welcoming. I was impressed when they asked if I had any food allergies.  That was very courteous of them.    I wanted to get a little more background of this family.  Just by talking to Buu and Brandi I knew they were aiming to build relationships with their customers. Watching the interactions between them and each person that came through the door, told me that they would treat their customers like family.  It will definitely set them apart from many other restaurants in my book. Phat Trieu and Cam Thai came from Vietnam along with their kids.   They have been cooking for years and

Featuring Interview with Cake Designer Nicole of OKC Cake Lady

I started working at a grocery store whenever I was 18 years old. I have always been a car Enthusiast and I had a mini truck that I was fixing up as a hobby. The grocery store manager asked if I wanted to work in the bakery to get more hours. Well, more hours equaled more money for my truck, and I kindly took them up on their offer. From there, I started in the bakery, and I absolutely loved it. I could not get enough of getting to create and putting smiles on customers faces. Me: What made you take a leap into starting your own business? I have always loved business. When I walk into other people's stores, I always look for ways to try to improve their store in my head. So, after working in the bakery for years I just knew that I could do this on my own and I would be a lot happier. I knew that being in my own environm
