Conversations with Yolando Mitchell Brown

Today we’d like to introduce you to Yolando Mitchell Brown.

Hi Yolando, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My story is like so many of us who travel West in search of a dream. At the time, I was convinced that I wanted to be in front of the camera. I soon found out that I loved being behind the camera more than in front.

In 2003, I began thinking about producing a talk show for everyday women. It was the beginning of my entrepreneurial journey. In 2004, I became the Showrunner for Every Way Woman. My two-bedroom apartment was my studio. For the next six years, I was creating content from my home, local studios, and sidewalks.

In 2010, I began taping episodes of Every Way Woman at a studio in Pasadena, CA. By 2014, the talk show was airing on sixteen local television stations across the country. It was around this time that I started to think about owning a studio. I wanted creatives like myself to have financial freedom when it came to renting a space.

In 2015, with the help of my husband, I open InaviZion Media, an OTT studio for creatives. In 2017, I began laying the groundwork for my next project. I created each segment of Every Way Woman to be a stand-alone show. I knew that I wanted to launch a network dedicated to talk shows as far back as 2004.

In March of 2018, I taped segments for Talk Show Land. By August of 2018, I knew it was time to relocate InaviZion Media to Burbank. On January 1, 2019, I open My Creative Space in Burbank, CA. My Creative Space is an all-inclusive space for creative entrepreneurs.

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
When it comes to owning a business, there will always be a struggle. The year 2020 was supposed to be the best year ever. I was excited about the new opportunities. I knew my clients. I understood their needs.

I was booking dates months in advance. When the pandemic hit, I decided to do whatever it took to stay “open.”

Let’s just say I am one of those businesses that received zero help from the government.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I talk! It’s what I do. I’m also a really good listener. It’s probably why I love producing talk shows.

Most people know me from either my talk show Every Way Woman or my business My Creative Space. I’m proud of the content I have created over the years and the lives I have touched.

I am not afraid to tackle unpopular topics. I asked the questions that most are thinking about but are too afraid to do so.

Can you tell us more about what you were like growing up?
As a kid, I loved the unknown. I was a curious little girl. I love to be outside. I also love to read. I was into magazines. It was always exciting went the bookmobile came to town.
