LANA REID’s new inspirational talk show DON'T BOX ME IN breaks from convention. Hosted by popular, award-winning author and public speaker Lana Reid, this uniquely inspirational/motivational show covers a variety of “outside the box” topics from Lana's own DISTINCTIVE perspective.

LANA REID converses with her audience and guests in an upbeat way, learning a few things, and having fun becoming better people with better lives – culminating into a core message that inspires ordinary people facing life’s challenges.

Having overcome her own personal tragedy at the age of 32 when she lost her beloved husband of 12 years, and thrust into single motherhood, Lana believes that people facing struggles can not only survive, but they can also thrive.

“Nothing wrong with being just a regular person, as long as you do it in an amazing kind of way,” Lana says, and her weekly show is home to these types of extra-ordinary perspectives: * A felon's struggle to get a job after release * A comic's rise from homelessness to fame * An activist making sweeping changes in her community * Younger men who like older women (cougars) * Save the three legged frog in the Mississippi river (!)

In the Belly of the Elephant
Everybody needs to run away from home at least once. Susan Corbett told people she was out to save the world but really she was running–running from her home as much as to anywhere. Like many women, she was searching for meaning to her life and for a good man to share it with. In Africa, she hoped to find both.

Compelling and compassionate, In the Belly of the Elephant is Susan’s transformative story of what happens when you decide to try to achieve world peace while searching for a good man. More than a fish-out-of-water story, it’s a surprising and heart-rending account of her time in Africa as she battles heat, sandstorms, drought, riots, intestinal bugs, burn-out, love affairs and more than one meeting with death. Against a backdrop of vivid beauty and culture, in a narrative interwoven with a rich tapestry of African myths and fables, Susan learns the true simplicity of life and discovers people full of kindness, wisdom and resiliency, and shares with us lessons we, too, can learn from her experiences.
