Trish Tonaj on the Power of the #Rebrand #LivingFearlessly #ThriveGlobal

It is always an immense honour, and a whole-hearted pleasure, to be afforded the privilege of continuously sharing the wealth with the collective – particularly when it comes to stellar messaging imparted by quality-rich; human beings!

Each week as you would now know, I go LIVE on Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald – my international reaching radio/podcast show, (heard in 145 countries with daily incoming metrics) to bring to the loyal listeners and podcast subscribers around the globe; the most inspiring and lit-up of guests you could possibly imagine! These phenomenal gems – ALWAYS bring their A-GAME, and never disappoint!

When listeners tell you time and time again, they felt as though they were tuning in to a conversation between two old friends chatting over a coffee in their living room; I know that my guest and myself; delivered! When a guest themselves echoes this exact same sentiment; it reaffirms and underscores that my purpose of “Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More,” remains in genuine alignment with who I know I am, and what I know I am called to do. So thank you, friends! I appreciate you!

I have gone on record many a time in saying that it is my humble opinion, that the guest ultimately makes or breaks the interview; irrespective of the onus for navigating the interview as the show host; lying with me. Fortunately, I have experienced an impeccable track record of interviewees, who enthusiastically, intelligently, and passionately…BRING IT!

Trish Tonaj, my Living Fearlessly with Lisa McDonald radio guest of last Friday, most certainly unpacked her awesomeness from start to finish! Trish was exuberant in our initial interview of last year, and accelerated our momentous conversation into high-gear yet again! Of course, this came as no surprise to me. Trish is forever present in her exchanges and interactions with others, and only ever knows how to show up as such as an authentic servant leader!


Given that I showcase guests who live in all four corners of the world, I unfortunately, do not often have the luxury of meeting up with each of them in person, however, this was not true of Trish and myself. We have since met in the flesh; over a lovely meal and a glass of wine with one another. Trish is equally invigorating in person as she is on the airwaves! It was like being infused with rocket fuel to hear her talk so proudly of her coaching clients, her ongoing endeavours, and her projected 2020 goals! It is with no wonder that this ball of burning brightness, has had twenty-six successful years under her belt as a regularly sought out entrepreneur – especially in an over saturated industry for what she does in the space of personal growth and professional development! Trish’s longevity with her ever increasing client roster, is a true testament to her high-calibre service delivery, and governing principles. 

I love and respect those (particularly fellow women entrepreneurs) who build themselves from the ground up – who essentially start with nothing other than a fundamental core belief in self, and who beholden the vision of forecasted greatness – those who turn nothing into sheer magnificence. It is evident that Trish has remained steadfast to the journey of self-mastery, self-awareness, as she executes so beautifully in her daily delivery of paying-it-forward in her ongoing pursuit of being of genuine service to others. WAY TO GO, TRISH!!!

On behalf of both Trish and myself, we wish to thank YOU the Thrive Global Reader, for kindly taking time out of your hectic schedule to graciously read this Feature Article, as well as for listening to the enclosed podcast link of our high-vibing radio interview together, and for any additional contact you may wish to initiate with either or both of us! It is always an honour and a privilege to serve in whatever capacity you may deem Trish and myself to be a synergistic fit for you! Thank you!

Uplifting You To Fear Less And To Live More! 

Be your own Hero. Be your own Shero. 
Be your own Leader. Be your own Best Friend! 
Love & Gratitude ~ Lisa
