Necole Tinsley - Licensed Therapist and Owner of House of Still, Incorporated

As I sit here and reflect I am so grateful for everything everyone has done, from supporting my first book, to sharing and helping to promote, sending kind words, to prayers and showing support. I have always said it and I'll say it again, I am truly blessed beyond measure. The devil has been working over time in my life, but God has kept me! To him I owe all the glory and honor to and to you all I owe all the thanks to. Special thanks to Traci Baker Jackson who has recreated my website and is rebranding me into the woman God has created me to be! She gets my "burning the midnight oil" personality.

Book me for Book Signings, order a sign copy of my book, book me for your next speaking engagement, or for your next workshop! I'm ready to help heal your tribe!
Check it out today!
Thank you to Nikki Woods and the Nikki Woods Media Team for all they have done and to Cheryl Polote-Williamson who introduced me to the project and has been the best "unofficial" and now "official" business coach on this side of glory! Spirit filled spirit lead!
To my son, friends, and family, I live this moment because of what you poured into me yesterday! I never would of made it without such a great, positive, and motivating tribe!

If you are called to be a leader you must leave the comfort of the crowd. It may be more comfortable to blend in, but the conviction of your calling demands that you STAND OUT!

Congratulations Reva Hudson

When faced with challenging circumstances, Reva Hudson dug deep.  On her side was a combination of a strong will, a made up mind, faith, a supportive and loving family, her University Hospital Medical and Rehabilitation specialists, and God's blessings.  Reva's medical challenge and the response to that challenge reminded some and revealed to others a creative talent that aided in her recovery, inspired others, and has the potential of benefiting her in ways not yet imagined.

Certainly no one wanted the challenge Reva faced, but through that experience, she has demonstrated that sometimes when "life hands you lemons," you have the ability to "make lemonade."  Hopefully Reva's story will help someone who is facing challenging circumstances.  We are all praying for her continued good health and all God's blessings.

Hidden Figures Movie - Well Worth Seeing


It was like a Flashback to my early days in Corporate America

There are a LOT of reasons to see this movie, and let me not try to explain the ways.  I will attempt to do that in the next (March-April) issue of VISIONS Newsletter, but meanwhile, I urge you to check out the movie, and if possible take a young person (or anyone).  If you are a young person, please take someone, anyone.  

Chances are that you or someone you know has "been there, done that."

More "Hidden Figures" - A Look Back and a Leap Forward


Sometimes a look back can result in a leap forward.  While promoting the movie and book "Hidden Figures", I came across information about other African American Females at NASA.  The six standouts in the article included Brenda Ellis (back  row on the far right, and below).  I had lost track of Brenda sometime after the photo above was taken.  I was excited to see Dr. Brenda Ellis featured in the article.  It is inspiring, informative, and potentially of great value in one's professional development, regardless of their chosen career. Please read this compelling article entitled Today's Hidden Figures: Meet the Black Women Working at NASA by CLICKING HERE

If a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted, or Beethoven composed music, or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.
