This Woman is Helping 50,000 Sisters Travel Solo, Affordably

“As women, we need to give ourselves some time. We need to recoup. We must learn who we are, and traveling solo can help us do that,” says Coleitha Banks, the founder of Sisters Traveling Solo. This purpose-driven woman created a 7,000-member Facebook Group community and turned it into 50,000 members in a year.  Sisters Traveling Solo is a company created to help women of color travel solo.

By offering unique payment plans, travel planning services for your entire trip, and amazing vacations to places like Peru, Bali, Paris, and more, Sisters Traveling Solo is creating a strong support system that allows women to experience the world in a cost-effective way.

Six years ago, Banks needed a break. She yearned for mental clarity and felt that taking her first solo vacation could help provide the peace of mind she wanted. Banks was determined to take her first solo trip to the 2012 Olympics, and she refused to let the lack of money stop her. With this passion in her heart, she developed a financial plan, took her first solo trip, and had a life-changing experience. Now, even with a corporate job, 90% of all of her trips have been solo, and she has traveled to over 21 different countries.

Currently, Sisters Traveling Solo offers nine trips around the world. “We help make women financially prioritize their travel, and we create an entire experience that is life-changing,“ says Banks. Traveling solo can be inexpensive and the Sisters Traveling Solo Facebook Group helps remove that concern. Here are five ways Banks helps her group members find mental peace through travel in the most cost-effective way:

Sacrifice Going Out.

Sometimes it is tempting to go out and spend money, especially, if it’s available. However, that disposable income can be used for your vacation. Take the money that you would use during happy hour and set it aside for your vacation. Instead of going out three times a week, save the cash you would have spent, and put it toward your next trip. Sacrifice temporarily, to help ensure that you are living the life of your dreams.

Travel on Deals.

There is no need to spend full price on trips when there are websites like The Flight Deal and Secret Flying. On a daily basis, search for their flight deals, and select the destination of your choice.

Make a Down Payment on Your Lodging.  Never Pay the Full Price Upfront.

If money is a concern for you when planning your travel, make sure that you use websites like Booking.com so that you do not have to pay for your hotel in full, up front. Booking.com does not require all the money at once, but instead a deposit. This will allow you more time to save for your vacation, and still have the dates secured.

Set a Personal Goal, and Make Your Vacation a Priority.

None of this will work if you are not serious. No more complaining. No more getting frustrated. Make a decision and eliminate all other options. Open a separate online savings account with Goldman Sachs, Capital One 360, or Ally Bank, and start setting aside money each month. Stick with it, and make this trip a priority in your life.

Be Flexible.

Be open to departing from other cities outside of your own. By flying from different destinations your flight can be a lot cheaper.

Twinkie Clark Shares ‘Hallelujah’ The Stage Play On The Clark Sisters

Wendy Williams didn’t know what she nests she knocked on when she came for the Clark Sisters on her show. Fans were not pleased and handled it quickly. Twinkie Clark of the gospel group says Williams is welcomed to come to her stage play Hallelujah.

“It would be nice if she came out,” explained Twinkie. “It would certainly clear the air.” There’s a new stage play called Hallelujah that chronicles the life and career of the Clark Sisters.

“They call us the legendary Clark Sisters and I think that all that comes from the years that we’ve got into the music,” explained Twinkie. “How we started out with our father being the pastor of the church and my mother the director of the choir and the Lord had opened many doors to where we are now.”

Larry Clark, Twinkie’s nephew wrote the play and likens it to a Broadway show.

“It’s 7 decades and 2 hours long. From 1957 to 2018,” expressed Larry. “It’s a lot to cover…it’s sort of like Broadway, we move really quickly.”

If you’re in Detroit, check out the show on May 12-13.

Sisters Launch Way For Women to Buy Car Tires and Auto Services Without Getting Ripped Off

Pink Rubber Tires creators - the Pruitte Sisters - with Steve Harvey on Steve Harvey's Funderdome

Marcia Pruitte-Coleman and Marla Pruitte are the co-founders of Pink Rubber Tires, a service that sells used automobile tires and tire services—and is targeted to women.

The twin sisters recently pitched their product on Steve Harvey’s Funderdome. Brandon Andrews of Values Partnerships sat down with both for an exclusive interview about their business and appearance on the show.

 

STEVE HARVEY’S FUNDERDOME - "Episode 105" - The seed-funding competition reality series "Steve Harvey's FUNDERDOME" featuring two aspiring inventors going head-to-head to win over a live studio audience to fund their ideas, products or companies airs SUNDAY, AUGUST 13 (9:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Lisa Rose) MARCIA PRUITTE-COLEMAN, MARLA PRUITTE (PINK RUBBER TIRES), STEVE HARVEY (Marcia Pruitte-Coleman and Marla Pruitte with Steve Harvey on Funderdome. Image: The ABC Television Network. (ABC/Lisa Rose))

 

 

Brandon Andrews: Pink Rubber Tires will provide automotive services in a space crafted for female customers. Why are you passionate about delivering these services for women?

 

Marcia and Marla:  We are always passionate about meeting a need, especially for women. They say necessity is the mother of invention, so our goal is not to simply open a tire shop, but to enter into a male-dominated industry serving a market that has been historically under-represented, tear down barriers for women and shatter the concept of the glass ceiling. We plan to show the world that we have what it takes as much as any man. Being women and mothers, we know the importance of helping others make it. This is about empowering other women; it is a movement!

 

How much money can someone save by buying used tires versus new tires?    

That is a great question. They could save upwards of $ 100 per tire depending on the type, size, etc. Our tires come wholesale from a distributor that takes the time to inspect every tire. Some are virtually new and most will have great tread left that will extend the life of the tires.

How did you feel pitching your business in the Funderdome?

It was an amazing experience. Of course, we were a little nervous in the beginning, but once we were on stage we knew we only had one shot. We were prepared and went for it BIG.

You won $ 10,000 for your business! What did you learn from your experience on the show?  

We learned that our idea is not only viable, but based on the serious response, there are many who are interested in making history in the automotive industry with us. The number of people that bought into our business concept, both men and women, and are interested in franchising is overwhelming and exciting. We learned that the world is ready for us and this is substantiated by research in the market regarding women and tire purchases. Women are truly an underserved market. We are committed to providing a top-notch product.

 

Give us a post-show update. How do you plan to grow your business in 2017?    

Since the show, we have had to update our business plan and investor pitch as we currently have several serious investors interested. We are projecting a first-quarter opening and want to set a precedent for future franchises. The idea that we will be creating more women entrepreneurs empowers us and pushes us to make this a reality sooner rather than later. This is bigger than just the Pruitte twins.

Eva Longoria Opens Up About Her Special Needs Sister’s Breast Cancer: ‘She Had a Hard Enough Life as It Is’

On Friday, Eva Longoria opened up about her special needs sister Liza’s frightening breast cancer diagnosis.

“It was a couple years ago,” Longoria told PEOPLE at the Kiss This 4MBC launch event in New York City.  “I never said anything because it was a private thing. It was my special needs sister too so she had a hard enough life as it is.”

“She got it early, stage 1, mammogram. We were lucky,” Longoria continued. “But one in three women who get breast cancer get metastatic , where it spreads throughout the body.”

When asked why she had decided to start talking about her sister’s history with cancer now, Longoria replied, “I haven’t spoken about my sister on purpose and then when this campaign came up I felt like, you know what, I’m literate on the breast cancer subject and I didn’t even know about metastatic breast cancer.”

“So I thought, how many people don’t know about this? And if I have a platform that can help women learn about this, if I have a platform that can help raise funds to find a cure for it, that’s even better,” Longoria added.

RELATED VIDEO: Eva Longoria Shares Her Top Three Tips to Pulling Off a Dramatic ‘Telenovela’

“It’s definitely important because it’s the least fielded, terminal cancer,” Longoria continued. “We’ve had so many advances in preventative and early stage and that’s great because there’s nothing better than stage zero. But these women are stage four and they usually have a 2 year life expectancy. And there is no cure so these are the women in most need.”

When asked about what advice she had for women who wanted more info about metastatic breast cancer, Longoria said to put themselves first for once.

“Women are horrible at putting themselves first,” Longoria said. “And the thing that suffers is your health.”

“So I would encourage every woman that comes here to be their own advocate,” she added. “because you gotta insist on that test or insist on that sonogram — insist on that extra step. And don’t take no for an answer when it comes to your own health. That’s a general life thing, not just health. It’s the airplane thing, put your own mask on before helping others.”

Longoria has previously called her sister Liza “her hero.”

“She was my hero growing up,” Longoria told Parade in 2007. “It was a blessing to watch her overcome every obstacle – tying her shoes, putting on a shirt, getting out the front door. And yet she still had a job and would come home on the bus by herself and help with dinner. You could only imagine the hurdles she encountered every minute of the day.”

She even said her sister helped her career in some ways. “Liza was a role model to get me ready for life in Hollywood,” Longoria continued. “You don’t take health for granted. You don’t take life for granted. It seems so insignificant to go, ‘Darn it, I didn’t get that movie role,’ or, ‘Darn it, so-and-so is wearing the same dress as me to the Emmys.’ ”

Eva Longoria has teamed up with Novartis and the Kiss This 4MBC campaign. For every boomerang and selfie posted with #kissthis4mbc Novartis will donate $ 10 to metastatic breast cancer research. More information can be found at kissthis4mbc.com.

Man Pleads to Felony Murders of Maryland Sisters Who Vanished During Mall Trip in 1975: ‘It’s Been a Long Time’

On Tuesday morning a 60-year-old sex offender admitted to the felony murder of two young Maryland sisters who vanished during a trip to the mall in 1975, PEOPLE confirms.

Lloyd Lee Michael Welch Jr. pleaded guilty to two counts of first-degree felony murder when he appeared in court in Bedford County, Virginia, the Washington Post reports — partially resolving a decades-old case with a long grip on the community.

Despite Welch’s plea, key questions about what happened and by whom remain unanswered. Prosecutors have said that Katherine Lyon, 10, and 12-year-old Sheila Lyon were abducted in Maryland in March 1975 and then killed, after which their remains were disposed of — but never found.

Welch was prosecuted in Bedford because it is believed the remains of at least one of his victims was buried there, according to the Post.

According to the Associated Press, Welch denies being responsible for the girls’ deaths or sexually assaulting them, but he admitted to being a party to their abduction, during which they were killed. Under Virginia law, that allowed him to be charged with felony murder.

On the day they vanished, the Lyon girls went to the Wheaton Plaza mall in Montgomery County, Maryland, to shop for Easter decorations and grab a bite to eat. They were never seen or heard from again.

Welch was sentenced to 48 years in prison as part of a plea agreement with prosecutors. However, his sentence won’t start until after the completion of a sentence he is serving Delaware for molesting a 10-year-old girl

As part of his deal with prosecutors, Welch agreed to plead guilty to two unrelated child sex abuse cases, according to the Post, with sentencing concurrent with his term for the felony murders. Montgomery County prosecutors further declined to pursue charges of their own as a result of Welch’s plea, the newspaper reports.

Bedford County prosecutors did not immediately return a call. Welch’s defense team was not immediately available to comment.

His admission so many years after the girls were killed — and despite a lack of physical evidence, including bodies — was heralded by some this week as an accomplishment by law enforcement.

“I think what they did was unprecedented,” Robert Lowery, a vice president at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, told the Post.

Welch was only developed as a suspect in recent years, after he was already incarcerated in an unrelated sexual assault case. However, he eventually gave multiple incriminating statements about his role in the Lyons case to law enforcement, only some of which were suppressed ahead of trial.

Welch’s plea meant “we can all be assured that will never be free to victimize another child or destroy another family,” said Montgomery County Police Chief Tom Manger, according to the Post.

Authorities have reportedly said they believe Welch did not act alone in abducting and killing the Lyons, but other participants are either dead or their roles could not be proven.

Katherine and Sheila’s parents and siblings were reportedly at the hearing on Tuesday. Afterward their dad, John, addressed the media.

“We just want to say thank you,” he said outside the courtroom. “It’s been a long time. We’re tired and we just want to go home.”

Study of sisters helps explain dad’s influence on risky sexual behavior

Researchers have shown links between father involvement and daughters’ sexual behavior, with the standard explanation attributing that influence to shared genes that impact both a father’s behavior and relationships and his child’s problem behavior, including engaging in risky sex and affiliating with delinquent peers. But a study suggests that even though genes likely play a part, they may not be the whole story.

Teen Sisters Write Book Urging Young Girls of Color to Celebrate Their Hair

Like most teens, sisters Zakia (15) and Alanna (14) Tookes, wanted part-time jobs to earn extra cash while on summer break. Their father, a real estate investor, entrepreneur, and published author, challenged them to find a more enriching work opportunity outside of working at their neighborhood fast food restaurant. Tookes wanted them to learn how to turn their pain points and passion for hair into an experience that could make them money and also teach them basic entrepreneurial and professional skills.

Zakia and Alanna accepted the challenge and co-authored their first book, Do I Like What I See? a book that helps women and young girls of color embrace their natural hair by following the hair journeys of more than 30 women/young women of color.

(Image: Courtesy of Zakia and Alanna)

What Inspired Zakia and Alanna

 

Their inspiration for the book stems from their love of hair, their own personal challenges with their hair, and from their desire to help other women and young ladies who struggle with caring for, loving, and accepting their natural crowns. “Our book will help women connect with their hair. There aren’t any hair journey books like ours; it holds history, facts, quotes, our opinions, and solutions,” boasts Zakia.

Although writing a book is not an easy task, in less than two months the teen sisters managed to interview over 30 women and young girls, including civil rights leader and broadcasting executive Xernona Clayton. During Clayton’s interview, the sisters asked her what her most memorable hair experience was. Clayton responded, “When a boyfriend said that he would prefer that I had short hair. Short hair was very popular at the time. He wanted me to look like most women. Of course, he didn’t last long. I’m not going to have a man tell me what to do.”

What’s Next for Zakia and Alanna

 

(Image: Courtesy of Zakia and Alanna)

 

Zakia and Alanna are spending the rest of the summer promoting Do I Like What I See? “I feel like people will want to buy our book because we are young teens who had a goal and accomplished it,” explains Alanna. “Although there are other books about hair, our book includes multiple experiences and perspectives and is very relatable,” says Zakia. They will be hosting a launch party and premier on July 9 to celebrate the journey African American women and young girls take with their hair and to promote the book.

Zakia and Alanna are using Do I Like What I See? to create a movement for mothers, daughters, sisters, and aunts to change their mindset, their hair story, and then their answer to ‘Yes, I like what I see!” To learn more about these teen entrepreneurs or to attend their book launch, follow them on social media @doilikewhatisee.

These Sisters Sang The Heck Out Of Their Disney-Inspired Wedding Toast

Leave it to a couple of Disney fanatics to pull off a magical, musical wedding toast. 

When Susie Kasteel married her husband Luke in Vancouver in July, her sisters Sarah and Naomi Carter performed a maid of honor speech set to the tune of a medley of Disney songs including “Be Our Guest” from “Beauty and the Beast,” “I’ll Make A Man Out Of You” from “Mulan,” “Can You Feel The Love Tonight” from “Lion King” and “A Whole New World” from “Aladdin.”

The bride’s response? “You crushed it!”

“Susie was smiling ear-to-ear during the performance, and we could tell she wanted to come up and join in,” Sarah told The Huffington Post. “You can hear her chiming in with background vocals during ‘Can You Feel The Love Tonight.’”

Singing chops run in the family. In fact, the girls’ mother was an opera singer. 

“We sing all the time,” Sarah told HuffPost. “Growing up, music was a big part of our household. As young girls we would sing along to all the Disney classics ― we know all the words! Naomi and I were also both very into musical theater.” 

The Disney theme was especially fitting for the toast given that the bride and her sister Sarah manage a company called Crowned Princess Entertainment, where they perform as princess characters for kids birthday parties and other events. 

Because Naomi lives across the pond in England, she and Sarah had to do most of the speech planning over email. When Naomi was in town a couple weeks before the wedding, they finalized the lyrics and started practicing.  

“It was tough to keep it a secret from our sister, so our practice time and locations were limited,” she told HuffPost. “We used the hour between driving from the ceremony and the reception location to practice. We were glad that the performance itself was the best one we had done!”

Watch the sisters’ enchanting (and entertaining!)  performance in the video above.

One of which, is the ‘reverse-curve’ handle system that curves the handle ‘inwards & upwards’ closer to the child, making it much more comfortable for the child – at a low height – to hold and navigate the case. The patent-pending design of this case also allows the wheels to ‘protrude’ out. This protrusion keeps the case elevated, so that even when being rolled at a very low height off the floor, the wheels will be the only point of contact and the case will continue to roll with ease. By weighing in at a mere 3.7 lbs, any child can wheel these fun cases around, as they also feature our inline skate wheels that make their rolling even better. It has a zipper closure system, that when opened reveals a beautifully lined interior, as well as a zippered divider for internal organization. Comes with 2 Year Limited Warranty. Carry-on Approved. 18x 11 x 9 ( 45.7 cm x 28cm x 23cm ) Worldwide PCT Patent Pending.

Mary Mackillops Sisters: A Life Unveiled

Mary Mackillops Sisters: A Life Unveiled


The incredible story of Sister Mary MacKillop, from nun to saint ‘It’s the nuns I remember. An oddity to outsiders; mainstream to any Catholic. Hardly a classroom was without one. They were young and in charge, and role models for the girls who looked up at them from the desks. They weren’t part of the clergy; they couldn’t take Holy Orders like priests. but they were leaders, career women, women in the church who had a role, an alternative authority, belonging to a community of convent life which, like their heavy clothing, separated them from everyday society. ‘ It was Mary MacKillop’s miracles of healing that led her to be canonised as Australia’s first saint, but perhaps her greatest and most important legacy to the world was the religious order she founded over a century ago. Mary MacKillop’s sisters – the sisters of Saint Joseph – have been teaching and setting up schools all over Australia and New Zealand since 1867, bringing education to those who could not afford it, regardless of their religion. In this fascinating collection of interviews, Anne Henderson reveals the inner lives of the sisters of Saint Joseph. Through their own words, the sisters reflect on their work, their vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and what these mean in the modern world. Providing a fascinating insight into the lives of these inspiring and deeply committed women, Mary MacKillop’s Sisters is an invaluable social history and a fascinating read.
