52 Businesses 


This year was very challenging, but it increased my faith and allowed me to operate in Hebrews 11:1 Now Faith. 


Here is the list, my goal was to develop a manual that goes with the list to share that whatever you purpose your mind to do, God will help bring it through.


When my father passed away, 2003 one of my biggest regrets was that he did not live to see my visions come to life.This sadness propelled me to compose the book “The Strength of her Words” published 2004.  (Old and New Edition Can be found on Amazon) Gratefully, I finished this book prior to my grandmother passing 2004.   


Also, my mother was able to share in many of these and some were even dedicated to her before her passing (Vivian Moore Jeffries Scholarship Fund).


As with 2020, this year my vision is to further this vision as God gave it to me and desire your prayers as this goes forth.


Beginning 2020, New Vision, New You; I shared with my Pastor that by the end of 2020, I would have 52 businesses.  This book will share some of my journey towards business focus and how other can utilize the information provided in order to have the freedom to choose from several careers leading to a greater sense of freedom. 

This journey started many years ago, when I decided to replicate the idea of oatmeal cookies 5 for a quarter from the elementary school.  I decided to find a way to make cookies and sold them in the neighborhood.  I did not know then, but the amount of products that it took to make was dramatically more than the twenty-five cents that I was charging.  My mother was not too upset, but I later learned that I had used a lot of products, including oatmeal, sugar, flour and time spent preparing the recipe, cooking and packaging it for distribution.  I learned then that I needed to consult with someone prior to deciding to produce a product. 

As I grew older, I began realizing that there were few opportunities for women and women were being steered into careers that involved home economics and other women-oriented careers.   When I arrived at college, I had decided that I would be the epitome of the appropriate female oriented positions as a teacher; but this did last very long as I decided to dis-enroll myself from the middle grades education program and declared undecided until I could figure it out.


While in college, I obtained began focusing on psychology, but still had no idea of what I wanted to do with the degree of psychology, minor in sociology.  I continued my education afterwards, attending community college with human services specialization in chemical dependency.  I had managed to gain employment as a third shift employee of a detoxification facility.  This required staying up all night and I would be assigned the front desk where a nap was not permitted.  So, I started typing the class notes and would sell them to other students.


I moved out of the dorms into some apartments with a roommates, but due to a misunderstanding, I ended up alone trying to pay rent and started thinking of other ways to make extra money.  I would go clean stadiums, but the work was nasty and required long hours that interfered with my full time employment. 


I started making floral arrangements and began selling these to co-workers for their homes and for events.  I had started attending small business classes to learn more about the operation of business and learned that there were rules that had to be followed in order to have a small business.  I began collecting this information and started my business, naming it M.E. Creations as an ode to the various items that I would make during times when I wasn’t working, bored and trying to change negative behaviors. 


This would be the start of my pursuit to operate a business rather than continuing to be an employee.  However, I was unsure of how I could grow my business to replace my employment, my benefits and my retirement package.  I continued making floral arrangements, but graduated to jewelry, stained wood and photography.
