50 Tips for Single Women to be Happy … With or Without a Man

With more women single than married now in America, Happiness No Man Required written by Dwayna Litz is a much needed read with 50 Tips teaching women how to feel complete and whole with or without a man’s affirmation. Statistics show that many women in the United States are currently staying single not because they do not want to be married but because they cannot find the right man for marriage, all too often left heartbroken by yet another Romeo only looking for a hookup.
Happiness No Man Required is not a man-basher but an honest portrait of what women face in today’s dating scene, compassionately encouraging women to realize that being single or married does not have to be a distortion of their dreams coming true. Happiness No Man Required praises good men, instructing women how to know the difference between the good and the bad and love and love addiction. Litz cheers single women on living in a postmodern age where the label of being called an old maid has become antiquated.

See Dwayna on the Main Stage and visit her throughout the show for your copy of  Happiness No Man Required.

Claire Hollingsworth, Food Network's Youngest Chopped Challenge Jr. Champion

Claire started stirring it up in the kitchen at the age of 3 at home with her dad as a means of productive entertainment.  Her earliest memory was making a chocolate cake and licking a large spoon clean!  Cracking eggs since age 4, wielding a knife since age 6 and cooking healthy, tasty meals for her family and friends for years – Claire is an aspiring and inspiring role model for our nation.  Claire’s cooking and STEM experience, kind and helpful nature, wit, sense of humor and ease in front of large groups made her the perfect contender for Food Network’s first season of Chopped Jr.  See episode here
At the young age of 9, Claire impressed the judges and won the hearts of viewers with her personality coupled with her cooking creativity, presentation and taste as she seized the title of Youngest Chopped Champion and the coveted $10,000 prize with Chopped Champion Chef Coat. While keeping this secret for months, until the air date in January 2016, Claire worked on inventions and her brand.  Her new inventions are products designed to take the fear out of cooking and bring fun and color to the kitchen!  Claire started Claire’s Cooking Lab and her brand showcases her love of science, experimenting, and natural foods with lots of family fun and love!  Claire created her Supernova Seasoning and Rocket Rub, which she used on Chopped Jr. in her entrée. Claire also worked with a local craftsman to make her small hands knife.  Recently released are the No Fear Oven Sleeves + Flavor Booster Trio.  These inventions are now for sale on her website.  (Note -New Branded website and Season of Seasonings Launch – November 1, 2017)
Since Chopped Jr. aired January 2016, Claire has been a role model to kids for cooking and pursuing STEM related activities.  She is actively sought out in the Richmond community for public appearances, cooking engagements and continues to receive recognition for her achievements, graciousness and generosity.  In June 2017 she was asked to come back to Food Network to compete on the Chopped Jr. Champions Tournament, where she competed well and became an overnight sensation in the foodie, girl power and entrepreneur circles.
