LOML’S Head Chef, Mysty Frazier, also known as “Chef Flava”, got her name, not only for her ability to enhance basic flavors and make them extraordinary, but also for her creative and innovative styles of cooking. After looking at the world we live in and noticing that toxic food is way too cheap and convenient, Mysty decided to change that by making quality, healthy fast food that is just as accessible.

Martina Young is the entrepreneur’s trainer for business and marketing development. Many of her clients have referred to her as a walking business dictionary. She has been training in business since the age of 14 years old when she began working in her dad’s business. Understanding people, defining their needs, and helping ignite the passion within has allowed her to multiply her business each year.
Her story is much like that of many entrepreneurs. She knows the hustle, the faith-walk, the setbacks, and the focus needed to build a business from the ground up. In 2008, she had enough of working as a Corporate Trainer and Executive Administrator and left Corporate America. She co-founded We Are B.O.S.S. (Business Owners Striving for Success) LLC and served as the Managing Partner for ten years. In June 2018, she established MY Enterprises, LLC to which she provides training in entrepreneurship, compliance, professional, scientific, and technical services.
Martina Young is a dream activist and pursuer of what others deem to be impossible. She is an expert in her field of business development, marketing planning, strategic marketing, integrated marketing communications, competitive analyses, and financial projections. Martina is an accomplished trainer and public speaker and a published author of “The Entrepreneur’s Guide to Becoming a B.O.S.S.: Business Owner Striving for Success”.
Martina Young believes that every community can be changed by supporting a LOCAL business owner each week.
Wm. Dexter Jones, CEO and Founder of Vendaetta Systems, is a native, and longtime resident of Dekalb County and the State of Georgia having attended Snapfinger Elementary School, Lithonia High School, and Morehouse College. Mr. Jones has a passion for community service exhibited by 25+ years as a volunteer youth baseball coach/trainer in several cities including Dallas, TX; Houston, TX; Union City, GA; College Park, GA; Atlanta, GA; and Decatur, GA. Mr. Jones describes himself as “both an educator and lifelong learner.” He regularly participates in Career Day activities and has a Code Academy in which he introduces technology to Primary School students.
Mr. Jones’ 20+ year professional career demonstrates proven technology, business development, and leadership skills across several verticals including, but not limited to, digital marketing, telecom, automotive, insurance, hospitality, and state/federal government. Some of his accomplishments include: the “Best in Show” award at TexMed, “Technology Innovation of the Year” from NAPA, a Dentsu (Japan) Grand Prix “Innovative Use of Search” award, a “System and Method for Attributing Engagement Score of a Channel” (patent pending), and the lead architect for automating the property tax/appeals process for Harris County, TX. He is also an annual guest lecturer for the J. Mack Robinson College of Business/IAE de Paris MBA program.
Mr. Jones is a father to four children, three of which currently attend post-secondary schools; he says his greatest accomplishment will be to graduate all four. To close, I will quote what Mr. Jones calls the turning point of life: “Each one of my children represent a sudden, and distinct change in my life. Each one has a different personality, different interests, and spirit. It is through them that I learned ‘service as a lifestyle’ and hopefully, as a family, we will pay forward all that life has to offer.”
