LAKITA D. LONG
Author | Empowerment Leader
Inspirational speakers and spiritual empowerment leaders with a heart that desires to mentor all that are willing. Her body of work spans over two decades to include 7 published books, 8 CDs, music, radio and on hundreds of live performances.
Like other Women in our history, Lakita uses an informational, empowerment, and inspiring way of engaging her audience. She tends to have an approach, deal and confront mindset in her speaking coupled with a softness that steals your heart. Her teaching style is true to her first love of "teaching" but remains true to her objective: helping people to "think outloud" through recognizing their strengths, and building from that platform. Lakita is gracious, yet outspoken, inspiring, raw, transparent, compassionate, energetic and an advocate, which are just a few of the common adjectives used when describing Lakita Long.
Her latest book, Starting Over and Loving It, chronicles snippets of the uneducated decision she made, that literally almost costed her everything; including her life. It explores the push that it took to continue her own personal journey, and the will to help others have the courage to leave anything that threatens their life giving them permission to start over again, anytime. Although the world has not had the opportunity to fully watch her display her God given talents, her community has, and knows first hand the extraordinary gift that she is, and will be in the years to come.
Today, Lakita is the mother of two wonderful children, the host of The Lakita Long Radio Talk show, Brand Builder for Women Entrepreneurs, writer and contributor to many different social media blogs and pages, an author, inspirational speaker, life consultant and a living example to the power of trusting in God, and sowing into other people's lives until you see fruit! Lakita has always been known to dig deep when others remain on the surface. For years, she has had the ability to tap into the minds, hearts, and spirits of individuals and create riveting conversations where she applies psychological concepts and biblical trues to bring forth inner healing and life style wellness.
