Spirit RYSing with Soul Coach, Latisha Robb
An Activist, Author & Self-Made Business Success
On Being A Woman of Many Titles – I’m a Realtor, Author, Speaker, Activist and “Soul Coach” but the job I love the most is Mother. I’m a pretty dynamic woman if I say so myself. I’ve never fit into one box, and I love it! As a ‘Soul Coach’, I help people get through the dogma of past pain and setbacks and chart a new path with a clear understanding of Who they really are.
God has provided me with this career which allows me to meet many people from all walks. When I am led, I speak to them, and it has been an incredible response. I see now how all my experiences help me with my overall purpose and can be so helpful to many, and that is purpose – to be a help to others.
On Calling Herself a “Rebel” – Having grown up in San Jose, California, I was raised in an atmosphere that challenged the status quo. It was the birthplace of the Black Panther Party. I used to try to be what other people wanted me to be, but that made me miserable. I’m a rebellious soul all about being a change agent for good! I call myself an Organic Phenomenon.
On Defining Success by her Own Terms – I define success as happiness – I mean like real joy. There isn’t any amount of money that can give you that. Happiness comes from within, so doing what you love and being with who you love, is success to me. Finding true joy has been a journey! My children are my legacy, and they are what drive me. Our future is nestled in my “carrot” that I refer to in my book “Turn On The Lights”. That “carrot” is the legacy I know I’m leaving behind when I’m finished with this chapter. It is my get up and go. I know I will be a great-grandmother, so I keep that in my mind every day, and I keep it moving – no matter what.
On Overcoming Adversity– Wow, there was so much adversary I had to overcome in my life. Many people say my story sounds like I’ve lived several lifetimes. One memorable moment in my life was when I was shot and having my life flash before my very eyes. I was married by the age of 20, to an undercover drug addict who didn’t care about the welfare of his family. I didn’t really have role models growing up. That situation almost took me out. But GOD!
On Being a Woman On-The-RYSE – Last year, I published my second book, What You Don’t Know About Your Soul. I intend to RYSE up as an International Ambassador, and an international Soul Coach. The beauty of Soul Coaching is that it is not limited to culture. We are one. This summer I was spreading my message in Puerto Rico and Spain, and now I’m a host mom to a foreign exchange student from Vitoria-Gasteiz, Spain. There is no doubt in my mind; I Am Black Girl Magic. I have made a way out of no way. I am a role model and example for minority women and children. I am a representative of God. I am just getting started so being a woman on the RYSE is a perfect fit.
