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 (!)

Who Am I
What makes Megan Cyrulewski's story so special? One word: Unbelievable. So much has happened to her in the last three years of my life, that people told me her she needed to write a book.

That book Who Am I? How My Daughter Taught Me to Let Go and Live Again is about her journey into post-partum depression, anxiety disorder, panic attacks, stays in the psych ward, divorce, domestic violence, law school, how she managed to graduate from law school and a beautiful little girl who emerged from all of this chaos.

The Power of Adversity
At the age of 18,Tiffany Mason was sexually molested and exploited by my coach's husband. After this traumatic situation, she was at a crossroad; she had the option of either allowing this man to negativity affect the rest of her life or to learn and grow from this experience. At the age of 19, she made the mental decision to learn and grow from every experience I encounter.

For the next five years, she researched and studied the topics of personal development and what it takes to have a healthy and loving marriage. Now, at the age of 24, she is the founder and owner of Mason Coaching and Consulting. She inspires and empowers women to unleash their feminine essence from the inside out so that their life and marriage are both meaningful and joyful.

How to Bounce Back in Life So You Can Do More, Have More, and Be More
Jimmy Burgess has ridden the roller coaster of life. He was a millionaire at 35, and lost everything financially. He bounced back from bankruptcy quickly by starting a new company in an industry that he had no experience in. He had revenues in excess of $1 million dollars within the first year out of bankruptcy.

But, the biggest benefit of bouncing back wasn't that he bounced back financially. It took him losing everything money could buy in order to appreciate and have all the things that money couldn't buy. This experience led him to write the book What Just Happened? How to Bounce Back in Life So You Can Do More, Have More, and Be More. This has ironically turned his mess into his message.
