Carla M. Goodman

GoodYnuff  LLC.

 After working 25 years in community service work, where I was known as Goody, I retired and followed my dream of one day having my own wine label and wine accessories. The GoodYnuff LLC. brand name stems from my story growing up always being told I was too tall, too dark, too fat or just not good enough. As I got older and learned to love and appreciate my beauty, these are the words I tell myself continuously, I Am GoodYnuff…..

Justice Akenia

Flourish Body Bar

Body contouring or body sculpting is a collection of non-surgical cosmetic treatments used to reveal a firm and toned body hidden underneath layers of fat or loose skin. Everyone has a sculpted physique waiting to be revealed, and sometimes diet and exercise are not enough to reach our aesthetic goals. These treatments target those stubborn fat deposits found in the abdomen, thighs, or “love handles” that won’t budge no matter what you do.

Janice Jones
The Arts Center of Montross

The Stafford Arts Festival

Like so many people of my generation, I was told that I could not make a living as an artist and that I had to be a nurse or teacher.  Neither of these professions was appealing to me.   So, I took as many elective art classes as I could but none of them involved learning to paint which was really what I wanted to do. I opened an arts center in Montross, I teach art classes and I am the founder and organizer of the Stafford Arts Festival.
