hope to will interview the person who will always be my podcast angel, she does this daily, Alecia Lawrence.
Alecia Lawrence and I are two very different people. We have different backgrounds, we have lived unique experiences on our journey, and we each live a totally varied lifestyle. Yet, we have a similar calling in life. And what we have in common is that we are both answering that call.
I call it making connections. Being supportive. Friends helping friends.
She calls it a “strategic alliance.”
I call it an interview.
She calls it a conversation.
I may say “I hope this works.”
She would say, why hope? “Make it happen.”
I got an email out of the blue one day, I completely believe that email is how angels communicate with me…
It was from Alecia Lawrence.
I felt like I knew her all my life when I read this:
My customers struggles daily with low self
esteem emotions and feelings of unworthiness
They desperately want to win the inner battle
to create the life they desire.
This strategic alliance will help you
while providing a solution to [those]
who are fighting an inner battle with self
esteem and feelings of inferiority, anger,
guilt and sadness.
Thanks for your time. I urge you to reply
today if you are interested in speaking more
with me and joining our network.
Um, yes, I want to know more. Did I reply? Did I reach out? Did I join. No.
I waited. I hesitated. I put a star on the email and pinned it for “later.”
(Read between the lines; self-sabotage, resistance, inner voices doing their dirty work.)
One day, I was clearing my email and I replied. I said something like, “I would like to connect with you. Are you interested in talking with me?” I am sure I told Alecia a little bit more about myself in that email. I most likely included some links. Always marketing myself….
Congrats on self publishing your first book. I can onlyimagine what a successful achievement it has been.
I love your motto of live be do.I am always on the look out for great info to teach
and share with my audience so they too can live
their best life.I would love to have you as a guest on my
podcast The Alecia Lawrence Show to showcase
you and your message.It would be a 20 min or less conversation to share
your technique and help people shift their life.Looking forward to your response.Love Peace and Bliss.Alecia.
I can’t wait to hear from you

I wrote down these notes to “answer” these questions in preparation for my big interview. Of course, as resistance would have it, I could not locate them when I needed them and I was totally unprepared and couldn’t do the interview on our scheduled date and time. I didn’t have the right phone connection either. This was a bomb. Nothing was going right. Yet, Alecia was patient and understanding. She has been doing this awhile. She is a woman of her word. She waited for me to come around and make it right. I didn’t need my notes when the time came. I was at ease and energized. I answered her questions from the heart.
I am delighted with the interview. Mostly, I am enthusiastic about the inspiration and motivation that Alecia gave me in our conversations leading up to and since the interview. She challenged me to stand up for myself and do what I have been wanting to do for a long time. I will speak in positive terms. She called me out on my “iffy” vocabulary. I have been hesitant for awhile and put my aspirations on the back burner. Why wait? Life is too short. I have been playing around with ideas for video webinars and podcasts for years. After the experience with Alecia, I feel that I must act on it now. With the release of the live interview on Alecia’s show today, I want to announce my own show. The launch of my own talk show with the first episode airing on MizMeliz.com this Saturday, August 2nd. It will be a weekly interview with amazing people. Each week I will interview someone who inspires and intrigues me. Since I love Hollywood and I want to honor the rock stars and legends in my life, I decided to make this fun…
