From Family Life To Showbiz, Meet The Real Ortega Family

Who says that a family can not build an empire together from ground up? Well, in Atlanta, one family has done just that! Keylun J. Cruz is the mother of The Ortega Kids: Karlian Cruz Ortega, Karsi Cruz Ortega, and Kloee Sky Ortega. This family has not only inspired many within their community but has opened doors to so many talent in Atlanta.

Keylun Johnson Cruz, born in Atlanta, GA, raised by her Grandmother, Annie Woodward. She grew up always having a passion for the performing arts. The acting bug bit Keylun at the age of 13 when she received her 1st audition for the soap opera, General Hospital. Mentored by Tony award-winning Kenny Leon at her High School, she began to write improv scenes and later, the scenes grew into various stage plays. The late Public Figure/Actress/Activist (daughter of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr) Yolanda King recognized her gifts and continued to mentor Keylun J. Cruz throughout her teen years, casting her in the theater troupe, The Youth Dream Team. Keylun went on in her career cast in several commercials, films, and voice-over national projects.

Obtaining a degree in theater, Keylun also studied in both Atlanta and New York City later winning several playwright awards and recognized by the NAACP. In 2013, Keylun and her son, Karlian Cruz Ortega created and wrote the project, The Ortega Show, which is loosely based on their actual life, with The Ortega Kids being the 1st American-born kids of an immigrant parent. Known from the hit popular Show, Secret Lives of Women, many craved to see more of this eccentric family. So Keylun and Karlian also created a musical part of The Ortega Show, The Ortega Family Musical. This multicultural show opened first in 2017 at the historic Earl Strand Theater in Marietta, GA. With great reviews, Keylun J. Cruz and Karlian Cruz Ortega (mother and son) brought The Ortega Family Musical back to Atlanta in September 2019. At the age of 15, Karlian is the Co-Creator of this project. The reason for creating multi-cultural content is because being bi-racial, The Ortega Kids needed a platform to design, re-create, and open the doors to many actors of multicultural backgrounds, changing the face of television and film through telling their stories as kids of an immigrant parent. In Atlanta, they were rarely cast for roles so they decided to build their own platform.
Even the youngest of The Ortega Kids, Kloee Sky, is the 1st kid to ever launch a scented fragrance earring line. As a young 8 year old entrepreneur, her youth business is flourishing.

Their new, popular theater production, The Ortega Family Musical in 2019, proudly sponsored by Hardy Family Automotive of Paulding County in Dallas GA, Sparkles Family Fun Center of Hiram GA, Raymona Thompson, Krystals of Hiram, GA, Michaels of Hiram GA, Kupkake Blue, Senior Life Services, Ibummerang as Corporate sponsors, the Paulding County community in Georgia is a strong supporter of this talented family.

With a background in acting, taking on multiple tasks were no problem for Keylun J. Cruz. As the Writer, Creator and Producer, Keylun also played the lead role of Layla Ortega alongside her children, Karsi, Karlian, and Kloee in the 2019 show. As this family has cast upcoming/rising actors in both Atlanta and Los Angeles, they aim to also open doors to actors even with disabilities. With that being said, after opening the doors to their new, family-owned production company inside of the historic Dallas Theater of their community named Kapture 7 Entertainment, 10-year-old Karsi Cruz Ortega is the youngest Executive Producer coming out of Atlanta to attach to a documentary film project. The health, faith-based documentary film, Inside of My Mysterious, another one of Keylun J. Cruz’s’ films, was directed by her 15-year-old son, Karlian Cruz Ortega. Inside of My Mysterious Life deals with exposing the causes and effects of people suffering from the disability, Lymphedema featuring medical physician, Dr. Crystal Champion. Inside of My Mysterious Life is officially Academy Qualified for the Oscars 2020. This is such great news for this rising, talented family who have built at rock bottom to ground up, captivating the hearts of many through story-telling. The greatest of all…they are giving other talent opportunities who have been rejected for years. This family believes that all good talent deserves a chance to live their dreams, even if they are the “underdog”.

Family’s Financial Future

Most of the time families struggle through life. You work endless hours and if both people are working you watch one of the wages disappear to pay for child care, health care, and taxes. Then the other wage gets eaten up with your rent or mortgage, utilities, car insurance, and food. Sometimes it seems that the only reason you exist is to make money so other people can take it away. It’s time to change all of that. You need to do things in a new way and forge your own path in life. Think of yourself as a pioneer charting a course to financial independence and success. Take the bold steps necessary to walk your own path in life. By doing so, you’ll help take care of your family’s financial future and help create a beautiful life for you and your loved ones.

Get the Entrepreneurial Training You Need

So often in life, we follow the path of least resistance and simply do what society has programmed us to do. The result is years wasted away in a mind-numbing job with bad bosses and little enjoyment or hope for the future. As an entrepreneur, you can change all of that. By being your own boss and doing exciting work you can bring passion and meaning back into your work life. Before you launch your new business venture, it’s important to get all the executive-level business training you need. If you enroll in a top tier MBA program, you’ll receive the education you need to successfully run an entrepreneurial venture. You can take out graduate school student loans to pay for your education and then easily pay the loans off over time. These courses will help jumpstart you on the road to success.

Leverage Your MBA Connections and Ideas to Create Your Startup Venture

In recent years, many MBA programs have shed the staid business school image and become leaders in the field of entrepreneurial education. You’ll often find that your fellow students have incredible business backgrounds and are looking to create their own successful startups. Basically, high-end MBA training has become the new entrepreneurial business incubator. By tapping into this area, you can leverage your training and connections and emerge from the program with a brilliant plan to create your own venture. You’ll be able to brainstorm ideas with fellow students and professors and tap into the network of local business advisers, angel investors, and venture capitalists who can provide incredible advice and funding for your idea.

Move into an Innovative, Smaller Footprint Home

If you are ready to take another bold step toward assuring your family’s financial future, consider moving from your current residence to an innovative, smaller footprint home. There are a lot of fascinating advancements in a tiny home or small home living that can allow you to downsize and dramatically reduce your monthly living expenses. These solutions also benefit the environment. By moving to a smaller dwelling, you can potentially save thousands each month. Some tiny houses sell for around $50,000 so your mortgage payment would be a fraction of your past expenditure. Additionally, you could easily pay off your home within five years and live the next 25 years mortgage-free when compared to a standard home. By freeing up your monthly cash, you’ll be assured your family’s financial future and giving yourself tremendous financial independence too.

6 reasons why every woman should practice self defense

A woman should practice self-defense

I was at a time in my life when I needed to start doing something different, so I thought about going back to doing sports again. As a child, I had played other sports, but for a long time I stopped doing it.” This is how Olga Domingo, 4th DAN in Self Defense began to tell us.

I’m sure this situation will ring a bell. Almost all of us have gone through something similar and if not, at the same time. Sometimes we find ourselves at a time in our lives when we need changes. We need to start something and we don’t know exactly what. Perhaps because of excess free time or, perhaps, on the contrary, precisely because we are so busy that we need to clear ourselves. It is not contradictory. It is more than necessary. Sport. That is the answer. “It is an escape valve; when you are very stressed, there is nothing better than hanging out with your colleagues for a while. You look like new,” Olga laughs.

The options we have to opt for are almost endless. On this occasion, our bet is directed at a martial art whose beginnings could be related to ancient times: self-defense, which is nothing more than a discipline that includes a great set of techniques to deal with situations of physical violence. However, as we will see later, the benefits they bring extend much further.

No one is exempt from being physically and verbally assaulted. However, it should not be ignored that we are the women who, unfortunately, have the best chance of this happening. The number of women who suffer from gender violence in our country rises every year to scandal rates.

The practice of this discipline is recommended for any woman not only because of the techniques learned in her training, but “because of the self-esteem that it brings you and the social relationship that training in a group entails, and more if you have suffered rejection in any way,” says Juan Ángel Orejón, National Personal Defense Master Trainer and 5th DAN and 7th Judo.

What you learn on the mat is applicable to day-to-day life, “it helps me evaluate and face my problems in a different way,” says Olga. These are just a few notes on the benefits of self-defense. Below you will read many others that will make you wonder if you are thinking of starting something or, simply, they will convince you for how wonderful they are.

1. Promote personal autonomy

And it does so both physically and mentally, in methods of self-defense and evasion through adequate information and training.

2. You will gain confidence and security

Not only for the physical skills that you will learn in each training but for the improvement that is obtained from day today. Seeing an improvement will make you feel more confident and able to continue to outdo yourself. And this is applicable to all areas of life.

3. It will increase your self-esteem

All of the above leads to precisely this very thing. It is important to feel good about ourselves, to recognize our worth and our capabilities (which are certainly not few).

4. You will change the way you see things

As previously indicated, this discipline is perfectly recommended for every woman. But it is true that those who have suffered abuse are surely much more vulnerable. Although there are also women who are because of their personality. All this will change with the practice of this sport. It will open your mind in an unimaginable way.

5. It will make you a more disciplined person

Any sport has the capacity to achieve it. When you start something that you like and that motivates you, you never want to stop doing it. You will seek to balance your times where training takes its place. The organization will be essential to achieve it.

6. Respect is the basis of this discipline

Self-defense, like Judo, are disciplines where values such as respect, humility, companionship prevail … Obviously, one should never attack unless it is by force majeure to defend oneself. This is taught from minute 0.

Tri-State Area Christian Relationship Coach Stephen L Robinson’s New Book Is the Number 1 New Release

Stephen L Robinson

According to Amazon, The Tri-State area’s top Christian Relationship Coach Stephen L Robinson just released his first book for the first time, which was the new No. 1 edition. This book is designed to help couples revolutionize their relationship in order to better use Bible principles. Stephen saw many people fail in relationships. “Most people fail in relationships because they are trying to do things their way and not the way of God,” Stephen said. His book T.R.U.S.T.I.N.G Love 8 Letters That Will Revolutionize Your Relationship is a unique book that is rooted in biblical truth but gives you practical advice on how to live that out in your relationship on a daily basis. Each chapter is designed to break down each letter that makes up the acronym trusting.

Stephen’s book begins with a brief overview of each letter. Before getting into meat and potatoes in the book, the introduction prompts you to take a closer look at yourself and your relationship to see if you display these features that God directs or do you think you are mere. However, don’t be fooled, this book is not just for couples. In fact, if you want to have a technique, a lot of the information in this book can be used for your everyday Platonic relations.

This book is inspired by God, from Stephen’s own story. Stephen was in long-term relationships as he was not making relationships with God’s way. He was selfish. He did just what he wanted and didn’t take the time to put his partner’s interest above his interests. Because of this, his partner felt rejected and alone, so she sought after the men who would pay her attention. To her astonishment, Stephen tricked him with 13 different men talking about Hasret. After a few projects, Stephen entered into a second relationship where he still fails to establish relationships in the way of God. He was still selfish but thought that because he did not lie or cheat, he was an excellent partner. Later, I realize that a good partner requires more than just not lying and cheating. However, when he realized it was too late, I left it to another man. This is why the “investing” chapter in the book is really special because it was something important that he lacked in his relationships.

After these two-hearted hearts, God gave Stephen the vision and invited his life to revolutionize relationships in order to better use the principles of the Bible. So I became a relationship coach. After recording a video, he recorded “Is Your Relationship T.R.U.S.T.I.N.G” had a great response. Hear God’s voice saying I want you to expand on the things that I mentioned in the video. This is how the book was born and actually made its first release on Amazon.
