Q&A With LaTonya Branham

What Impresses You Most, About Someone?
"The ability to listen, then share. A global mentality."

Interviewed by Hugh Gaddy 04/17/10

What book have you read that changed your life?
"There are two books by Michelle McKinney Hammond that were instrumental in my career transition and personal transformation. Get Over It and On with It, and The Diva Principle revealed to me that "if you want something different, you have to do something different!" I have adopted this statement as my personal motto, and life has never been the same."
