How would you describe your swagher?
I would describe my swagher with one word- CONFIDENCE, it allows me to adapt to any environment and appear to belong. I think it is very important not to limit yourself to the situations and people you are comfortable with, but to challenge yourself to be able to operate in any circumstance and still be able to stand out.
What makes Latima, Latima?
My Mama and my Daddy! No, but seriously my parents instilled in me the importance of self-love, giving back, integrity and a thirst for learning. My father used to always ask “what do you call a man who thinks he knows everything?” The answer is “a fool”.
What inspired the storyline of your book, When You Love Somebody?
Real life, part my life and part the lives of the people around me. I’m sure we all know or come from a family that has dealt with the situations in my book.
Will there be a sequel that includes the same characters?
The next book will definitely be a sequel. My readers are demanding to know what happens with the characters. I guess that’s a good thing right? So be on the lookout for When You Love Somebody-A Woman Scorned.
Do you still host your radio show?
No, I don’t. I am transitioning into TV. My goal is to host a talk show with a radio style format.
What motivated you to go back to school for your Master’s Degree?
One of my passions is motivational speaking. I want to be able to touch as many women as I possibly can to help them live their best lives. An MA in Communications will help me learn the tools I need to accomplish that.
What is one obstacle you overcame with your business?
MONEY! It’s very difficult to raise capital for your business on your own, but you have to invest in yourself. If you don’t, no one else will.
What words of inspiration would you give to our readers?
Don’t let anyone dissuade you from pursuing your dreams. Find a purpose for your passion, because that’s the sweet spot of life.
Do you have any upcoming events or projects you would like to inform us about?
I am planning a book tour for the 3rd quarter of 2016. When You Love Somebody will be coming to a big screen soon. I have a children’s book that I co-wrote with my 6 year old niece that is going to print soon, and last but not least, I am writing a screenplay for a web-series called MARS A True Hip Hop Story.
