XayeFaith and Devann Edwards

Total Freedom Network is founded by XayeFaith and Devann, global business consultants who help entrepreneurs optimize their businesses through accountability.

They created Profit Plans to support productivity, efficiency, and profitability in companies, aiming to empower entrepreneurs and businesses to achieve their potential and create a life of total freedom.

Aeoliana Elliott

Hi there! I'm Aeoliana (pronounced a-o-lee-ana), the founder of Top Shelf Virtual Services and a passionate podcast strategist. Originally from Puerto Rico, I've called the Tampa area home for over 30 years. Alongside being a dedicated wife to my awesome hubby Danny and a proud hockey mom to my amazing son, Devdan, I bring two decades of experience as a family and criminal paralegal.

As a podcast strategist, I specialize in helping female podcasters launch and manage their shows. My heart-centered strategies empower my clients to grow and monetize their podcasts while authentically serving their audience. I understand the challenges faced by podcasters and entrepreneurs and I'm here to offer the guidance and support needed to overcome those challenges.

Beyond my work, I have a passion for all things hockey, indulging in true crime stories, and continuously expanding my knowledge through podcasts. When I'm not immersed in the podcasting world, you'll likely find me cheering on my son at his hockey games or enjoying the calming sound of a rainy day.
