PlanNet Marketing is pleased to welcome LaToya Thompson to the 20/20 Club! Latoya is from Bassfield, Mississippi – born, raised, and currently residing. She says, “Bassfield is a place where we are small in number but big in everything else that we set out to do. My interests include reading, spending time with family and friends, hosting small intimate social events, mentoring youth females in my community, and traveling.
“For as long as I can remember, I have loved everything about travel. I remember traveling at a young age. One of my most memorable experiences would be having an opportunity to study abroad while an undergrad student at Tougaloo College. I was able to live in Costa Rica for a little over two months during this time. It was eye-opening and an all around great experience. Another awesome experience would be going to Jamaica to celebrate my birthday shortly after coming into this business. I followed that trip up with Paris and Mexico not even a year later. I thoroughly enjoy everything about travel.
“As far as my success in the company, I would have to first give honor to God because without him none of this would be possible. Secondly, my grandmother, Claudia Thompson, is a driving force behind my success. She supports me so much and to make her proud is really my beginning and end goal. Another factor for my success would be my support system – my sponsor, LaTashia Alexander, and a few other leaders like LaTeshia Campbell and Shanice Lloyd. Being a part of our unit within the company has helped me a great deal. I am so grateful for the support, and the knowledge base is more than amazing. I wouldn’t be successful if it weren’t for my personal team. They literally push me to work harder and motivate me to become a better leader. We hold each other accountable and we are there for each other.
“Tips that I would pass along – stay consistent. Don’t ever stop working for your why and always push harder. Remember that someone is always watching you and you never know what impact you might make on an individual.
“One fun fact about me would be I’m always down for an adventure and regardless if I’m terrified I’ll probably try anything once.”
