The LORD answered me: Write down this vision; clearly inscribe it on tablets so one may easily read it. (Habakkuk 2:2 CSB)


ATL’S GAME CHANGER 

DESTINY STEPS — Fortunately for Latasha Kirby, a native Memphian who resides in Atlanta, she’s been afforded the golden opportunity to function mightily in her element as a social entrepreneur, most notably through the ever-so-competitive industry that centers largely on credit restoration.

For the record, Latasha Kirby has done exactly was she was supposed to do with her God-assigned vision.

She’s written it down and run with it, meaning she’s steadfastly devising ways to enhance it.
And not just enhancing it, but to her credit, she’s seeking ways to share it before the world for such a pivotal time as now.
During a recent interview with Making Headline News, in fact, Kirby, 43, appropriately introduced to the masses her immeasurable gift as social entrepreneur.
What is a social entrepreneur?” Kirby said.
She’s glad you’ve asked.
“A person who establishes an enterprise with the aim of solving social problems or effecting social change,” Kirby explained.

Fortunately for Kirby, a native Memphian who resides in Atlanta, she’s been afforded the golden opportunity to function mightily in her element as a social entrepreneur, most notably through the ever-so-competitive industry that centers largely on credit restoration.

“I am a social entrepreneur, teaching people about credit and the power of credit,” said Kirby, whose endeavor has expanded in large part because of her having partnered just last year with Myecon, a 15-year-old, debt free technology company that teaches financial literacy. “I am able to live and teach financial literacy strategies. Credit being one of them. I enjoy helping people and sharing knowledge that allows individuals to make informed and effective money decisions.”


THE VISIONARY 

“They teach sound minded, biblical principles that will stand the test of time,” said Kirby, adding that her periodic meetings with Myecon officials are nothing short of impressive. “This company gives the blue print to wealth management.” Pictured is Myecon founder Alvin Curry.

Ever since she has joined forces with Myecon,  — which is widely regarded as a technology driven company — Kirby has enjoyed a variety of perks, which includes frequent traveling nationwide, particularly to Memphis, Metro Atlanta, Tampa, Miami, and Charlotte, among others, during which she establish solid a working rapport with company executives.

“They teach sound minded, biblical principles that will stand the test of time,” said Kirby, adding that her periodic meetings with Myecon officials are nothing short of impressive. “This company gives the blue print to wealth management.”

And for the pivotal reason, Kirby has become greatly inspired to absorb the pertinent knowledge that’s been shared with her and, in turn, pass it along to others.

Her beloved son tops the list of beneficiaries.


“Ever heard this: Cash is King, But Credit Runs The Kingdom? I attract millennials, as well as baby boomers,” Kirby said. “It is a great idea to teach credit as young as 13 years of age. I have already planted the seed in my eight-year-old about money and credit. He has his own debit card by Chime.”


For Kirby, favorable credit has become a constant passion on her part amid one of the most discouraging experiences of her life.

Kirby once owned a Memphis-area restaurant that eventually had to cease operations.

“After opening my first restaurant in the city of Memphis and failing, (shortly) thereafter I filed (Chapter 13) bankruptcy,” Kirby told MHN during a December 2017 interview.

KNOWLEDGE IS POWER — A graduate of the University of Memphis with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration, Kirby also holds an MBA in Management of Information Systems. Her professional stint includes having worked in the information technology arena for seven-plus years during which she was a fixture for a 100-year-old company that helped her to enhance her skills and mechanics as an IT professional.

“People must understand how to use credit,” Kirby continued. “Credit is not an invitation to spend uselessly or unnecessarily. It’s a testament to your money habits and an opportunity to avoid deposits, high interest rates, high insurance rates, while taking advantage of increase negotiating power, asset levering in investing and bragging rights.”

For what it’s worth, such a turbulent, life-altering development has essentially catapulted this thriving, progressive business professional to her much-anticipated purpose.


“After helping hundreds of people restore their own credit,” I transitioned into real estate investing, mutual funds and other limited liabilities companies,” Kirby said. “So now I’m on this mission to help educate one million people on the power of credit so they can do the same for their own legacy.”


What’s even more intriguing is that Kirby possesses the credentials, which have enabled her to thrive and flourish in her selected line of work.

Now having found her niche for a globally-acclaimed copy, Kirby emphasized her mission statement is centered largely on helping people to become credit conscious, all the while achieving their financial goals in the process.

“It’s my passion,” Kirby said of her booming career that has given way to array of sustained success. “If we’re talking credit, I’m all in the conversation.”
