Tyree Elaine

Tyree Elaine became popular to many through social media with her video “Women Over 40 Be Like,” which was a joke. She and a friend have mothers who are around the same age and they were making fun of the things their moms often said.
She actually came on the scene prior to that particular video becoming popular. Tyree was in the field of education and found herself going to a job that she did not enjoy but it was difficult to let go of a steady income and familiarity. “It’s kind of weird to say that all you know how to do is get up and be miserable for eight hours and come home,” said Tyree. She has been separated from her job for two years now.

Donna Clayton

Donna may be doing her dream now at TBN as her studies were in the field of broadcast journalism during undergrad. She spent years applying for internships and jobs but no one accepted her. She gave her due diligence with emails, letters, etc and every door closed. She became discouraged wondering why God gave her a desire to do something only to leave doors closed. Little did she know God had a plan.
She was an undergraduate student and heard about an internship with TBN’s youth network and although unpaid, she went for it and did everything unto the lord. After she graduated from college she worked in the prayer department and became a prayer supervisor. After 5 years of being in that department she had a moment that changed her life.

Aly Jae

Aly developed a love for makeup at a young age, five years old. She began working for Clinique as a counter manager in 2008 and learned the basics of applying makeup and skin care. It wasn’t until she was coaching students for competitive speaking that she thought about becoming a beauty influencer. The students encouraged her to share her tips through YouTube.
She didn’t jump right in after her students suggested this grand idea, she prayed. She wanted to pursue a career in education (teaching) but was blessed to follow her passion of beauty after much prayer and thought. She has learned that self-employment can be challenging, discouraging at times.

Melissa Fredericks

Melissa set out to write her book in February. She expressed the idea to Kevin during their date night and between dinner and a movie he took her to the store and purchased a computer for her to use to write the book. Hard work paid off because this past August she released her book titled, Journey to Self-Love.

Melissa considers herself an introvert, but if she has to pick something it would be public speaking. During the process of writing the book she found it to be stressful and intimidating. Her husband encouraged her to write as if she were actually speaking to women and the words began to flow. She wanted to share her story on personal experiences and struggles for universal issues with the readers. “I thought I could humpty dumpty myself to be this woman that I thought was beautiful and perfect and everything that I thought that I wasn’t,” said Melissa. As she reflected for writing purposes on her emotions while dealing with low self-esteem she found it to be therapeutic for her and even realized some areas where she was still struggling. She wants women to feel empowered after reading her book and understand that the way God created them is great. She has read books about many subjects that have brought about a range of emotions but she wants the women who read her book to feel empowered to change. The person in the mirror should be someone you like and love and anyone who struggles with that, as she did, should begin their journey to love themselves as is, no exceptions.

You might think that Melissa, a.k.a. MrsKevOnStage, was anticipating sales of hundreds of books. Well, surprisingly one exciting weekend Melissa’s husband, Kevin, took to social media to promote pre-sales of her book. Melissa recalls thinking she would order no more than 50 books and thought from that amount she would only sale a few from online orders and try to sale more at the Love Yourself Gabfest, which was recently held in Atlanta, GA. Well, thanks to her husband promoting her book she went from 50 books to over 200 in the first few days from online orders and needed to order more for the Gabfest.

When asked how she is handling the spotlight as an author she stated, “at the end of the day I still feel like we’re in the thick of the grind, we haven’t arrived. It’s still an adjustment.” Melissa has dreams and aspirations to accomplish and having this book published is just one of them.
