To know me is to know that I love, love, love sisterhood. Not only has my career afforded me the opportunity to teach, mentor, coach and speak to women around the globe, my life is saturated with amazing women who adore me as much as I adore them. And as often as possible I like to find myself in their presence, being warmed by their bright light and refreshing energy. To this end, I am over the moon about my "Women Who Lift Us Higher" series premiering March 4th on KBLA TALK 1580. Join me each Saturday in the month of March as I engage in joy-filled, soul-stirring conversations with 7 brilliant and influential women. Click on my guests' picture to learn more about them and their impressive body of work.

Mischa with Tavis Smiley at the start of their conversation on January 15, 2022 at KBLA.

Only when God and the universe conspire together on your behalf do you receive an opportunity that aligns so strategically with your life's calling that you are left completely mesmerized.

After being assigned the cover story for the Fall 2021 issue of Suite Life SoCal Magazine, I had the honor of interviewing the legendary broadcast journalist Tavis Smiley on August 9, 2021 about his new radio station. Six weeks later, I received a call from Mr. Smiley saying in part, "I'd like to offer you your own show where you interview writers about writing." My initial thought as I reflected on my long standing love affair with words and books and stories: Are you serious, God? My next thought: Okay. Though intimidating, this makes so much sense.

After coming to myself, there was no question in my mind that all I had done over the last 17 years in the writing, interviewing space was responsible for God placing this blessing in my hand. Having been faithful over small platforms, it was easy to see how God could believe I was ready to step onto this larger platform.

My inaugural show on KBLA TALK 1580 was October 2, 2021. In October 2022, my show was renewed for a second year. I must say I am having the most amazing time meeting and being in conversation with some of the most beautiful people. READ MORE

I can't even begin to explain the joy that fills my soul from curating meaningful conversations with beautiful people. Listening, probing, exploring perspectives, asking questions that walk us through the hallways of one's back story is beyond gratifying.
