Don't Box Me In
Lana Reid

Los Angeles based award-winning author and public speaker Lana Reid is the host of the uniquely inspirational/motivational talk show DON'T BOX ME IN.

Known for her passion in taking on a wide scope of topics that interest her (book titles range from “Survival Tips My Cat Taught Me” to “My Love Notes to a Black Man” - !), Lana 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 will inspire 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 will be 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 (!)

Lana is open to talking to regular folks about anything… Those interested in joining Ms. Reid as a guest on the show should contact her via email at
