Laticia Nicole Beatty often says, “I am just a girl from Detroit, MI who had dreams of success.” In 1992, she moved to North Carolina with $15, four outfits and a dream. The thought of being what others said she would become gave her the perseverance to gain admittance to Livingstone College in Salisbury, NC. Her passion for helping people led her to transfer to Winston Salem State University where she graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing with honors.
Laticia Nicole furthered her education by receiving a Master of Business Administration from the University of Phoenix in Phoenix, Arizona. The two combined degrees allowed her to become an Executive Director in the long-term care industry thus accentuating her desire and passion for helping others. She credits her success to God, her mother, grandmother and a loving family who instilled strong morals, values and work ethics.
The term “entrepreneur” doesn’t begin to describe who she is. She is a giver. Her strong desire to empower, promote self-awareness and self-esteem throughout the community lead her to create the nonprofit organization Professional Divas, Inc. To exemplify her passion for giving, the vision God gave her to feed 1,000 people during the 2013 Thanksgiving season was exceeded above and beyond when 2,500 people were fed nationwide.
Her public speaking platform, Laticia Nicole #SpeakLife, has allowed her to motivate others by simply speaking life into the dead areas that cause people to feel broken and angry. Laticia Nicole says, “My foundation is based on the word of God; and, it has been my strength to move forward in continuing to #SpeakLife to as many people that will listen.”
In December 2017, Laticia Nicole was named Marketing Director at Surge365, a brand new direct sales company with US and international operations. They offer a unique, exclusive membership that will allow its members to travel at rock bottom prices and offer a 110% price match guarantee on all online bookings. In January 2018, her efforts with Surge365 as the second sales leader in the U.S. led to her receiving a Dodge Charger from the company, all expenses paid.
Laticia Nicole is a child of God, wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend, mentor, philanthropist, sought-after motivational speaker, author and always a work in progress.

Laticia Nicole discusses what motivates her and makes her a successful leader.
Spectacular Magazine (SM): Describe what makes you a successful leader in the area for which you were honored?
Laticia Nicole Beatty (LNB): What makes me a successful leader is that I truly love people and want to see their needs met. Also, what makes me a successful leader is like God has no respecter person. I don’t have a respecter person, we are all created equal. Just like Philippians 4:12 says I know what it is to be in need and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. But I also know that what I make happen for God’s people He will make happen for me.
SM: Can you name a person who has had a tremendous impact on you as a leader? Maybe someone who has been a mentor to you?
LNB: Pastor Rose Thomas of Unfailing Love Christian Church has made an impact in my life. Not only is she a wonderful pastor, teacher and a mentor, she also is an amazing spiritual mother. Her love is always unfailing and she leads with it. I love my pastor; she’s always there for me, she always listens to me and gives me great advice. I couldn’t ask for better pastor, teacher and Spiritual mother.
SM: What problem or condition in your respective field do you want to solve or improve?
LNB: I am an author, speaker, and a personal development coach that helps women conquer fears to help maximize their potential business and create positive personal relationships. I am also the Founder of PD Inc., which is a nonprofit organization that helps underserved issues within the community.
SM: What legacy would you like to leave behind?
LNB: The legacy that I would like to leave behind is motivating everyday people to help one another. by supporting the people by feeding, clothing and treating each other with respect and love.
SM: What is at the top of your bucket list for 2017?
LNB: I would like to take my family to Dubai to experience another country and how they live.
