Hey, Hey, Hey! Happy Monday. You Guys’s I”m so super excited to share with you! On Monday’s I will be sharing with you a boss lady who is following her passion, pursing her goals and just rocking it out in her career. This is something that I have been wanting to do for a long time and here it is finally!! Whoo hooo!
One of my passions is to help women feel empowered to purse and follow their dreams. I also want to help provide them with resources and tools to help them rock it out and feel empowered. I always love learning or hearing other women’s success stories and it always helps to connect and learn from others in their journey. I know there have been times where I felt really lost or just didn’t know where to start in growing and understanding what my purpose was. I can go on about this topic and maybe I”ll share a post about this in the future. If you would like to be featured on my Monday’s are For Boss Lady Love reply in the comments and I’ll send you some deets!

Tell us a little about yourself.
I am LaTia Reed, affectionately known to some as Coach Tee. The SHE.E.O of my own life and business. I am soulful being and lover of human nature. I am a women with an obsession for three things; my family, my peace and my personal development. I am a woman of many facets and lots of personality. My personality is one that I describe as colorful. When I am not ubering for my family or clowning around, I am pouring into the beautiful, smart and talented girls that are in my mentoring program or coaching amazing women that have a desire to live from a place of abundance. I am one that works very hard at pursuing my pretty by pushing in my purpose. It is what eat, sleep and breathe. I am from Detroit, Michigan.
What is your favorite color?
My favorite color has always been purple until a little over a year ago. As I have come more into my own I find that the color that is more authentic to me at the moment is Gold
How did you end up in the career path you are currently in?
I have always understood that I was blessed with the gift of help or service if you will. My desire has been to assist girls and women in becoming a higher version of themselves and to do it unapologetically and from a place of authenticity. I have worked in the Human Service field for most of my adult life but found that there were so many restrictions when it came to what I could do, say or teach. I am one that do not live within limitations so these restrictions only made my wheels turn even more trying to figure out what I could do to push past my gifts being limited. That’s what a rebel does right? We are purpose pushers. We don;t necessarily break the rules but we go against the grain of what others think and kind of make our own rules. It is a long story as to the specifics of arriving in the space of a life hacking Personal Development coach but trust me, when my life was turned upside down by hearing the words “you may not make it through the night” and I made it, I realized that so many people leave this world unfulfilled and I didn’t want to be amongst that number. My prayer was that if I my life was spared, I would live in purpose and assist others in going the same.
What’s your favorite type of music?
I don’t have a favorite genre. My favorite music is anything soulful.
Are you a morning person or night owl?
I am both. Im even equally a left and right brain thinker. Maybe it’s a Gemini thing.
What inspires you or share a favorite quote?
I absolutely love this question! I pull inspiration literally from EVERYTHING! I’m inspired by the good, bad and the indifferent.
What advice would you leave for woman pursuing their purpose?
When pursuing your life purpose, move at a pace and in a way that feels good to your soul. Do not spend one more waking moment living a life pleasing to everyone else but yourself. You have to come first and you have to live on purpose for purpose. It isn’t called YOUR PURPOSE for no reason. Remember that you are the one that is responsible for your happiness. There is no time like the present to unleash your confidence so that you live from a place of authenticity and abundance. As I tell my clients, there is greatness in you and it is required today.
