AWARD-WINNING MARKETING EXPERT VELMA TRAYHAM LAUNCHES FREE MASTERMIND PROGRAM TO HELP ENTREPRENEURS OVERCOME ADVERSITY AND PROPEL THEM TO SUCCESS
Velma Trayham, founder of Thinkzilla PR Consulting Group
Award-winning business and marketing expert Velma Trayham of groundbreaking faith-based marketing and public relations company ThinkZILLA PR & Consulting Group, recently launched a free program helping entrepreneurs to overcome business adversity and propel them to success. Though she doesn’t like to harp on her own achievements too much, she is a sought-after marketing expert, chief executive of a highly successful PR and business growth firm which has helped both nonprofit and for-profit enterprises reach astronomical success levels.
While many business leaders make mistakes, the consequences of poor leadership on a small business can be disastrous. The harsh reality is that 8 out of 10 businesses fail. First-time business owners are prone to make errors that experience and knowledge would have helped them avoid - this is where Velma's first-class business understanding can help.
The platform provides many of the urgent questions that business leaders commonly have and help those seeking to transition from a comfortable corporate background to the thrilling world of entrepreneurship.
Velma's desire to nurture business leaders and build communities in the Atlanta area and around the United States is partly down to her strong faith, which teaches her to use her talents for the benefit of others. Unlike many other platforms of a similar theme, the Millionaire Mastermind costs nothing but offers a great deal. Hoping that her expert knowledge and insider experience will help inspire great careers for others, Velma implores business leaders to reach out and achieve their goals.
"Not only have I been blessed to be able to live out the purpose in my life," said Velma, "but have had the tremendous opportunity to help others do the same."
For Velma, talents are God-given and we should aim to use them to the best of our abilities. Through growth in business and overcoming obstacles, leaders can move towards their personal destinies to overcome fear, doubt, and disbelief. The economic prosperity of an individual can help an entire community to thrive, providing jobs and opportunity.

Protestors at a recent Black Lives Matter march in Oklahoma City, OK
On Saturday, April 14, 2018, the Oklahoma Black Business Expo will take place at the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. This anticipated event is intended to bring attention to African American entrepreneurs and business owners, and the resources that assist them in being successful. The expo's purpose is to highlight the 13,905 Black-owned businesses (U.S Census Bureau 2012 Survey) in Oklahoma, as well as to inspire the next generation.
The Tulsa Race Riots of 1921 is what comes to mind when the rest of the United States thinks about what it means to be Black in the state of Oklahoma. This moment in our nation’s history is when the Black community that made up the Greenwood district of Tulsa, Oklahoma saw close to 300 humans murdered and countless thriving businesses destroyed forever. The reason for the massacre was based on the accusation of 19-year old Dick Roland assaulting a white woman in an elevator. "We pay homage to our wounds and take responsibility for our healing," says expo creator Asa Leveaux of Leveaux Group, Inc.
The Oklahoma Black Business Expo is an effective platform in ultimate exposure for African-American and multi-ethnic businesses, academic institutions, and various community resources that have made a positive impact in the lives of their community members. With the Black population of Oklahoma being well over 260,000 the need for a statewide event is needed and necessary. Due to the need, there will be a time set aside for children to compete for business funding as well as Empowerment Sessions throughout the event.
The expo is currently sponsored by Leveaux Group, Inc., The Journal Record, BlackPR.com, Oklahoma Army National Guard, Oklahoma State University’s Office of Diversity & Inclusion, Langston University and will present such excellence as the Emmy award winning Jabee Williams.
