“If your dreams don’t scare you then they aren’t big enough.” Laticia (Tish) Thompson, born and raised in Joliet, IL, embodies this sentiment. For much of her life she has taken deliberate steps to challenge the status quo, test her limits, and step into fear vs. run away from it. Attending high school graduation four months pregnant motivated Tish to defy the stereotypes that are associated with being a teenage mom. She made it her mission to build a comfortable life for her family and knew that a college education was the key. In addition to her business degree, she holds a Master of Science degree in Management and Organizational Behavior with concentrations in Human Resources and Organizational Development. Tish is currently pursuing her doctorate degree in Business Psychology.
Stepping outside of her comfort zone, Tish founded a management consulting firm called Legacy Blueprint, LLC. The firm was birthed to help organizations and individuals maximize their fullest potential. Legacy Blueprint, LLC partners with organizations to provide the blueprint for strategy cultivation and execution, staff and leadership development, executive coaching and employee engagement support. Because of the success of her firm she was faced with having to make one of the toughest decisions in her career: play it safe and remain in her steady, well-paying job, or step out on faith and pursue her dream of growing her business. She stepped out on faith and hasn’t looked back.
Tish is described by many as a dedicated mom of four, a trailblazer, an infectious motivational speaker and facilitator, a passionate entrepreneur, and a five time marathon finisher. Tish is passionate about giving back to the community and will soon be launching a not-for-profit organization for pregnant teens. Are her dreams big enough? Absolutely!! She will tell you she’s terrified… in a good way!
