After departing from the United States Marine Corps, I entered into my voyage of a beauty industry professional. I learned a lot of technical & theoretical information, but i realize now that I was never really taught the "business" side of things. Of course we scratched the surface, but i was not aware of the "dog eat dog" world that I was to encounter. In my journey, I have not found an institution that does. This is the purpose of this website. To coach others on the things that I have learned the hard way. I want to elevate the awareness of the need for personal development. I am seeking out anyone looking to improve themselves from the inside out. I do have a passion for cosmetologist barbers & independent contractors of all types, but this information will be useful for virtually anyone. I am launching this site because I wish I would have known years ago what I know now. So, I will be regularly posting information so that I will be able to address the needs of those ready to take their careers to the next level. At 4PeoplesChoice Solutions, we believe that if we create solutions for the issues of the mind body & soul, then we will make the choices that will elevate us to levels unknown!

Tearing Down The Setup Facade

One of the major things that we want to focus on here at 4Peoples Choice Solutions is the expansion of the real history of the world, and not just the “whitewashed” versions that have been so prevalent within our nation. As I remember history class, none of the real facts were given in totality.  This is the facade that has been so widely spread to set up a mentality and a mindset of supremacy that perpetuates the furthering of a pseudo-cast system of others that do not fit into the appearance or etiquette guidelines set by the majority group.  The thing is, that the secrets are starting to be revealed, and the arc of history is starting to bend away from many of the myths and legends of “his-story!”  When we really begin to look at thing from a wholistic point of view, then we begin to see where and why so many minorities, or especially black people have found themselves at a disadvantaged position in life.  Then we see how others feel as if we should be able to pull ourselves up by our “bootstraps.” Then when history is viewed factually, then we see that we were never given the opportunity to get our boots or our straps.  Once we understand that things were separate, but they definitely were not equal, then we can start to squash some of the illusive racial tensions that so often pervade our country as a whole. When things like denial of the GI Bill to black veterans after the war, redlining on real estate, Jim Crow laws, etc. then we can begin to unravel this tangled web which the government has so tightly woven.  When we look at the mass incarceration and so-called war on drugs, then the mask is starting to be revealed.  When we take a look at the nations prison industrial complex, and what is trying to be achieved in the nations exploits, then and only then can really begin to see the long trail of lies and deceit that have been orchestrated and manipulated to keep certain agendas on track. This is on of the areas that we want to address, “History vs His-story.”  When young ladies and gentlemen can truly understand the system that has been utilized for decades, and some centuries, to promote mindsets and stigmas, then we can have a generation that can truly make the needed changes truly make America great.  This knowledge must be met with action though. We can no longer sweep things under the rug of “patriotism.”  We cannot continue to cover the nation’s real issue up with debates about the flag.  It is time build.  Build our knowledge, build our wisdom, build our skillsets.  Not only that, it is time to build our self-esteem, build our rapport with one another, and build our unity.  Then from there we can build our communities, build our cities, and build our self-love!  This is the end-game goal for 4Peoples Choice Solutions.  This is a multi-faceted problem, that must be attacked from a myriad of different fronts.  We want to stand and face them head on, but we need others to join us in this war.  Will you be one?

Barbershop Check-In


A guy sticks his head into a barbershop and asks “Hey, Buddy! how long before I can get a haircut?”

The barber looks around the shop and says “about 2 hours,” and the guy leaves.

A few days later the same guy sticks his head in the door and asks…”how long before I can get a haircut?”

Again, the barber looks around at a shop full of customers and says “about 2 hours.” The guy leaves.

A week later the same guy sticks his head in the shop and asks “how long before I can get a haircut?” The barber looks around the shop and says “about an hour and a half”. The guy leaves.

Insight does not squelch creativity.

The barber  looks over at a friend in the shop and says “Hey, Joey, I’ll give you a free cut if you follow that guy and see where he goes. Joey stays gone for a little while, and he came back in grinning. The barber says, this must be good, where did he go?

Joey just shook his head & said, “Your House!”

Getting Healthy & Wealthy

As we address the issues of the mind body and soul, it will allow for people to make choices that will elevate them to heights unknown. In an effort to do so, we have come across an awesome alkaline water company based out of Houston, TX. Teshuater is a black owned company that seems to be on the cusp of stardom. Not only do they market quality alkaline water directly from their own aquifers, but they are also offering a crypto currency call Teshucoins backed by the business to tap into the ever-growing block chain technology of exchanging currency. This company really caught our eye, and we look forward to seeing the future of Teshuater.

An article on the Doctor’s Health Press gave us some great benefits of alkaline water.

”Water is incredibly essential for the human body. In fact, the average adult body is made up of 50% to 65% water. Water is used in the organs, tissues, and cells of the body to help regulate temperature and maintain necessary body functions, such as eliminating waste and transporting nutrients.

In other words, water is a carrier—it distributes vitamins, minerals, and glucose to nourish your cells. It also helps remove toxins from the body through the urine and feces.

I make it a priority to drink a lot of water every day. The general recommended daily intake of water is eight to 10, eight-ounce glasses of water per day. That’s around 64 to 80 ounces a day. However, the Institute of Medicine recommends men consume an average of 125 ounces of water daily, and women drink approximately 91 ounces each day. Don’t forget that you can also consume water through food, such as vegetables and fruit.

There is often debate about what type of water is best for your health. Is filtered water the best for you? How about reverse osmosis filtered water? What about water straight from the spring? Can you simply drink tap water? Whatever water you drink, many believe your water should be alkaline-filtered.

What Is Alkaline Water?
Alkalinity and acidity are both measurements on the pH scale of 1 to 14. Neutral is considered 7.0, and anything below that point is considered acidic. Alkaline water typically has a pH between 7.0 and 10.0 on the scale.

Another common name for alkaline water is ionized water. It is thought that natural spring water is the best source of alkaline water, with a pH around 8.0 to 9.0. Alkaline water also has a higher pH level than tap water. Regular tap water usually has a pH level of 6.0 to 7.0.

Natural alkaline water occurs when water travels over rocks. For instance, spring water will obtain minerals and increase in alkalinity during this process.

Health Benefits of Alkaline Water
Alkaline water helps alkalize an acidic body. This is especially important for people who consume diets that are rich in acidic foods, such as processed foods, dairy, sugar, and red meat. Some research suggests you can live longer drinking alkaline water. One study called the Okinawa Centenarian Project found that people from Okinawa, Japan, regularly live to 100 years old—they drink alkaline water with a pH of 10.0!

Evidence also suggests a handful of other alkaline water benefits:

1. Helpful for Detoxification
Detoxification is important for removing the accumulation of harmful toxins in the body. Toxic overload can lead to chronic fatigue, low energy, bloating, mental confusion, inflammation, and food sensitivities. Drinking alkaline water can help detox the body of heavy metals, such as mercury. In a 2003 study published in the journal Ambio, researchers found that alkaline water had a protective effect against mercury in 43 women who lived in an alkaline-rich area in Sweden.

2. Alkaline Water Weight Loss Plan
It may be beneficial to try an alkaline water weight loss plan. In a 2011 preliminary study published in the journal Original Internist, researchers found that obese individuals who drank two liters of alkaline water daily lost an average of 12 pounds over two months. In a 52-week study published in the International Journal of Experimental Pathology in 2001, rats that drank water with the highest pH level lost the most weight.

3. Reduces Acid Reflux
Acid reflux will typically create a burning feeling in the lower chest, typically after a person has eaten. It is a condition where stomach acid flows into the esophagus. It is also commonly known as acid indigestion and heartburn. People are often diagnosed with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), where acid reflux is experienced at least twice a week.

Research shows that alkaline water can be a beneficial therapeutic treatment for patients with acid reflux disease. In a 2012 laboratory study published in the journal The Annals of Otology, Rhinology, and Laryngology, researchers discovered that drinking alkaline water with a pH of 8.8 results in beneficial acid-buffering activity. Alkaline water also inactivates pepsin, an enzyme that plays a role in acid reflux.

4. Helps Improve Bone Health
Alkaline water could also improve bone health. A 2014 observational study published in the journal BMJ associated a high milk intake with a higher risk of fractures amongst women. It is thought that alkaline water is a safer dietary source of calcium than milk or dairy. In a 2009 study published in the journal Bone, researchers discovered that alkaline water significantly reduced two markers associated with bone loss—PTH and S-CTX—in 30 female dieticians.

5. Provides Antioxidant Benefits
Alkaline water is a natural antioxidant that can neutralize harmful radicals in the body. Laboratory studies have also tested the antioxidant potential of alkaline water. In a 2006 study published in the journal Applied Biochemistry and Biotechnology, alkaline water showed potent antioxidant activity when mixed with vitamin C.

6. Essential for Heart Health
Drinking alkaline water can reduce certain risk factors associated with heart disease. In a study published in the Shanghai Journal of Preventative Medicine, researchers found that alkaline water consumption for three to six months could significantly reduce blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol.

It was concluded that alkaline ionized water could improve the symptoms associated with diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Heart disease and hypertension are risk factors for diabetes. In a 2004 study published in the journal BMC Public Health, researchers suggested that alkalized mineral water could lower blood pressure in people with low calcium and magnesium levels.  



Drinking alkaline water may also help hydrate your body, improve mental clarity, and boost your overall immune system.”
