We had the good fortune of connecting with Latannia Locks and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Latannia, what do you attribute your success to?
The energy that my family gives me. That is a driving force in everything I do, and the key behind my success. I would also have to say being authentic and creating an emotional connection with a client and customers is an effective way to ensure a lasting impression. Engaging with customers allows me to put myself in a position to brand my business, put myself out there whether it’s to stand up for what I believe in or to own up to an honest mistake in a humble way that resonates with customers and gain their respect.


The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Of course! I would like to give a shout out to my tribe. That tribe consist of everyone from everywhere that have supported me, pushed me, encouraged me and loved me through my faults. I’ve been mentor from close friends of mine, through tv (Oprah) and books. My favorite book when it comes to finding your place in this world as a woman and doing business in this world as a woman is Successful Women Think Differently by Valorie Burton. She’s definitely been a huge inspiration for me and a distant mentor. My greatest shout out would go to God. I can tell you that if it wasn’t for having something to believe in, especially where my roots derive from, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Period! My husband for pushing me and inspiring me with his never give up attitude. It’s all about attitude. My kids for always reminding me to have fun (haha)! My family is everything to me!!
