LaTisha Patterson is a Woman Making it Happen

Welcome to our new weekly edition of Women Making it Happen (#WomenMakingItHappen). Each Wednesday on the blog we’ll feature a woman entrepreneur who’s making it happen in the world of entrepreneurship!   She's gonna share with us how she keeps it moving for her business venture(s).


Today’s featured woman is a wonderful woman whom we’ve had the pleasure of working with on several design projects. We designed projects for her spa business Charming Chicas LLC, and most recently her 5013c Corporation Ambition.

We asked her to share a bit about what keeps her pushing and striving to #MakeItHappen in business!!!


  1. First, we’d like to thank you so much for being a featured guest on our blog.Tell us a little bit about your business ventures. I have a non profit organization called Ambition. My mission is to educate, motivate,and inspire girls and boys ages 8 to 20 years old to live out their dreams. I want to encourage them to explore all of their options. I want to assist them with entrepreneurship, financial stability, and educational goals. College may not be for every one so I want to give them suitable options such as career development for different trades or occupations that may not require a traditional college education.
  2. What propelled you to venture off into entrepreneurship? Since I was a child I always wanted to be a boss. I love being able to be create and think of new things. Helping others and making a different is my passion and this is why I chose the non profit route.
  3. What are three important lessons you’ve learned since starting out in your business(es)? I have learned that I can't do it all by myself and I need to let go of some of the reigns and delegate responsibility.
    It is not as easy as it looks. There is a lot of hours and hard work that goes into starting a business and there is not any financial compensation. The main goal can not be about money when starting a business. You need to genuinely be passionate about what you are doing because outside of business hours you are still working.
    A woman making it happen in business is the driving force of small businesses everywhere
  4. Have you faced any particular struggles being a woman owned business owner? I don't think I have faced struggles because I am a woman.I believe most of my struggles have to do with lack of preparation and focusing on too many things at one time.
  5. Tell us a little bit about your support circle; who do you rely upon for support and guidance? I rely on my family and board members for support. My boyfriend is great when it comes to him listening to my new ideas or even giving me constructive feedback and suggestions. I try out different workshops on my kids and they let me know if this is something that would work with their age group. Without my friends and other business owners encouraging me when I want to give up or just sharing my post helps a lot.
  6. What advice would you give other women seeking to delve into entrepreneurship? I would say go for it. I think there is never a perfect time so the best thing to do is step out on faith and start now. You can start small but just start.
  7. Supporting other women in business is part of our mantra so tell us how can we support your business ventures? Just featuring me is enough. I am very honored to be a part of your Women who makes it work blog series. Being able to have a platform to share my organization mission and vision is great.

  2. Awesome Latisha, I wish something like this was available to me at 7 when I knew a lifetime of "going to school" was not what I was cut out for. That's a very rewarding venture. I am looking forward to see the big things that will happen on your end!!
