Meet Precious Jones

Meet Precious Jones

By: Mixed Talk Media | November 5, 2021

Meet Precious Jones, owner of 11:11 Vibes By Precious. While perusing social media, I came across a post for what I thought was dessert! Yes, I thought I saw delicious jarred desserts. After a second glance, I realized the dessert was, in reality, a candle. That blew me away! Pun intended. Intrigued, I clicked onto her profile to see all the beautiful creations she had to offer. 

Tell us alittle about yourself.

I’m 31 years old and a mother of four children. I’m from Dallas, Texas. I am a serial entrepreneur. I began my business in 2012, but I didn’t start taking it seriously until 2020.

Who/What was the motivation behind starting your company?

As a kid, I always loved the smell of candles; my mom kept them around the house. My motivation behind starting candle-making was because of the aroma of a burning candle, the fire from the flames relaxing me, to the candles looking so realistic. Being able to create them the way I choose brings out my inner child and my creativity.

Do you make a variety of aromas?

I specialize in sweet scents, but I have aromatherapy scents as well.

What is the best part about working with your customers?

Connecting with candle lovers and leaving them with a product they just love and is uniquely different.

Please leave a short message of inspiration for entrepreneurs reading today.

No matter what business you wanna start, start that business without a business plan! The same God that gave you the vision will give you the clients. Just Start!

Love it! Sometimes we think we have to have it all figured out. Taking the next step is equal parts faith and choice. From there, we can build a plan that will support our future growth. I second that! Start today and see where tomorrow takes you.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mixed Talk Media

Happy Birthday Mixed Talk Media

By: Shunte Gamble | October 27, 2021

It’s been a year! What a year it has been. Have you ever had a feeling there was more to the story, the dream, the person? More you could do. That was me. 2020 brought many changes, some good and some least desirable. 

However, one thing it gifted me was time to think on pause. Time to receive instructions for my next step. Time to reflect on the transitions my businesses have undergone. 

All Twisted by Design, where I sold my handmade jewelry. Total Beauty Ladies Events, where I began to produce monthly events in support of Breast Cancer Awareness. Then BBU! Magazine (Beautifully Being U!) was launched as I began to meet so many inspiring community members and leaders. I wanted to spotlight entrepreneurs, causes, and events in Houston. 

Ahhh, Women Empowering Change INC burst forth. WEC is now a nonprofit organization purposed to support entrepreneurs, the community, and its leaders. 

After a trip down memory lane, I came to one pressing call; teach the world. HOW!?! I called my mom for support. She encouraged me to dig deeper. Shout out to my mom! I love you. I wrestled with the voice I heard so clearly until the how was clear. Start a radio station!

I was finally getting somewhere. Now I wondered, “How do I do that, what website would it go on, what about BBU! Magazine, and WEC”? 

I digress here for a sec. If frustration or a million questions are hitting you, take joy in this stage our your process. If you lean into what is frustrating you or the questions you cannot seem to answer, you will eventually arrive at your solutions. Many times our first response is to flee whatever troubles. Sometimes we can be hard on ourselves for not having the clarity we desire. When we pause, listen, reflect, seek support if needed, and lean in, we find the answers that have been waiting there all along. Keep going. You got this!

I did what I just shared. I paused, listened, reflected, sought support, and leaned in. Sure enough, there were all the answers I needed for that stage in my process. 

I took the first step; NAME. I wrote out names that were impressed upon me and then called my dad for help. Without missing a beat, he said, “Mixed TALK Radio.” Shout out to my Dad. I love you! 

BOOM! DONE! Now, where does Mixed Talk Media go? LOL! 

WEC housed BBU! Magazine at the time, but I knew that was not the place. I also knew that BBU! Magazine needed a makeover. 

Mixed Talk Media emerged as the new home for Mixed Talk Magazine, Mixed Talk Radio, and our media content. 

A year later, I am writing on our new digital media site to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY MTM! 

With time has come growth! Look how we have grown.

Meet The Popkorn Kid…. Kroy

Meet The Popkorn Kid…. Kroy

By: Mixed Talk Media | October 26, 2021

Meet Kroy an 8-year-old Atlanta Native who loves gourmet Popkorn. This love runs so deep; he created his own called KroyKorn.

Kroy, diagnosed with Autism in 2019, struggled like most children at the start of Covid-19. He quickly began to miss his regular activities, including Lunch Bunch, with his friends at school and movie nite with family. His life was changing with everything transitioning to virtual. It was tough because Kroy required consistency. He needed something to do.

One night he suggested a movie nite but was quickly remembered something was missing. It just wasn’t the same without his favorite Popkorn treat. The vendor was privately owned and had closed due to Covid.

Kroy had an idea and Kroy Korn was quickly born. He turned a problem into a satisfying solution. Kroy and his mom began creating different flavors of his Korn. The rest is history! He now offers fifteen different flavors and custom party-themed Kolor Korn.

KROY KORN launched his Karamel Korn on Amazon and was featured in Atlanta Parent Magazine, and Voyage Atl. He has supplied his Gourmet treats to Tyler Perry Studios (special Thanks to Collette Caters) and HBO’s Pause with Sam Jay (Special Thanks Yanise Monet).

His treats are quickly taking over Atlanta and causing people to wonder What’s Poppin?
