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 (!)

Small Change, Big Difference
About 8 years ago, Michael McManus and his wife and were flat broke with twin newborns. They struggled badly but had what little help his wife’s parents could give. They’ve since built a successful business and overcame those hardships. Now they want to do this for others.

This is why Michael started a non profit called Gethrr. Gethrr is a community dedicated to serving the needs of others through a monthly membership program. We take all the donations for a given month and use it to help someone in need. Michael believes its not about how much you give but simply that you do give. The beauty of Gethrr is that donors give a just small amount. There are no million dollar donors, just ordinary people with big hearts. We all matter and we all make a difference, together.

Keith Kay was well on his way to becoming a hopeless alcoholic. He got sober in the traditional, Twelve-Step way. Over the course of his recovery, his life's journey brought him outside the mainstream of the conventional way people get sober. He became first a registered nurse, then studied alternative and energy healing, and then moved on to the psychology, science and spirituality of personal transformation.

He realized that his sobriety was effortless, while observing the majority continue to struggle for months, years and decades into recovery. He dedicated himself to understanding how this amazing transformation happened. He came to understand that his way of being is sustainable; he has a sustainable recovery.
