I remember like YESTERDAY what I felt.
To BOTCH my first interview.
To lack CONFIDENCE.
To feel like I would never be SEEN or HEARD.
Or the unsettling thought that I would die with my story INSIDE of ME.
Odds are if you are considering this mastermind.
You have known for some time.
You were CALLED TO be a S.A.P. too.
(Someone’s Answered Prayer)!
And get this…
I've Got The Street Cred You Need
As someone with over 25 years of experience in Hollywood, an award-winning TV Editor, my own resume is peppered with notable names such as ABC, NBC, MTV, OWN, Bravo, Dreamworks Studios, The Walt Disney Company, Universal Studios, Warner Brothers, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Access Hollywood, The Bachelor, Swamp People, Clean House, My Cat from Hell, LA Hair, and Bar Rescue to name just a few. Publicity and DVD features for gigantic box office hits such as Shrek, Chronicles of Narnia, The Incredibles, Cars, Princess Diaries, Cinderella are also in my arsenal, plus much more.
Tough conversations with myself
I remember my devastating interview SO clearly…
I looked good but boy did I get it wrong.
When I had to go back to the drawing board, make strong and steady efforts, to fix it.
And boy did I FIX IT.
I got in touch with my authentic self.
I stopped caring about what the infamous “they” thought.
I became a shame crusher.
And I fixed all of the mistakes I made in my first interview.
But Babyyyyyy I Figured It Out
By the time my second book, So You Want To Be On A Reality Show?: Insider Tips To Make The Cut hit the market, I had gotten some “get-right,” booked myself across Top 10 media outlets around the country, and began to crush my interviews.
The noise I made ultimately led to…
★ Asked to do my own segment on ESPN Radio in New Orleans! (The crazy thing is that I’m not into sports at all, unless you count spreading yumminess a sport! In which case I should get a gold medal)
★ Invited to speak at an event held at the United Nations! (Me!! Wanda Mercer’s baby girl got an invite to speak at an event at a U.N. EVENT!)
★ Offered to do a new show for Centric TV, BET’s sister network! My taping went so well that instead of being the third episode, they bumped me up to the Week premiere episode!
Authors, Experts, Speakers, Coaches and Entrepreneurs
You have a story inside of you that is waiting
▶︎ To be told ◀︎
▶︎ To be seen ◀︎
▶︎ To be heard ◀︎
And the honest truth is
You can’t wait on a Publicist to sign you
With NO GUARANTEES
Your story will be told…
And that comes at a whopping $10,000 price tag!
You’re enough now
Your story is significant now
The world needs to hear from you NOW!
I created a DIY publicity program and now run the Media Mavericks Academy where I help all types of people from all walks of life become "Somebody’s Answered Prayer." Applying my 7-step Maverick Method, my Media Mavericks learn to leverage the media to put their messages and their missions on display in a powerful way!
I created this system for someone like YOU,
so that you set yourself apart by focusing on the RIGHT goals at the RIGHT time and as you do it, watch your story go from GOOD to GREAT---GUARANTEED!
I am going to move you from FRUSTRATION to ELATION.
That is your media
STILL NOT SURE YOU WANNA COME PLAY WITH ME?
I know how SCARY it can be to put your WHOLE and VULNERABLE self out there and if you think getting a spot in the media is impossible … think again. I did it and have the experience to show you exactly how to go from little-known expert to nationally recognized guru.
You see, along with correcting the mistakes I made in my first botched interview, I learned a ton of insider secrets about pitching great television segments during my 20-year career as a TV editor.
Not to toot my own horn, but I earned the reputation as one of Hollywood’s most highly sought-after editors with work featured in everything from celebrity news stories and DVD bonus features for The Walt Disney Company, to Reality TV shows.
People want to know they can trust someone who has traveled the road they want to pave and I get it.
That’s why you can see my magic sprinkled all over hit shows like:
The Tonight Show Starring Jay Leno
The Bachelor (ABC)
Bar Rescue (SpikeTV)
Swamp People (History Channel)
Clean House (Style)
LA Hair (WeTV)
My Cat from Hell (Animal Planet)
Redneck Divas (TLC)
Joan & Melissa Knows Best (WeTV)
Black Gold (Tru TV)
A&E’s Top Ten (A&E)
It’s Me or the Dog (Animal Planet)
And many more...
Not to mention, my team and I won an Emmy for Home Made Simple on OWN TV
I was the Behind-The-Scenes Producer for the #1 comedy of 2018 - "Night School" with Kevin Hart & Tiffany Haddish. And 2019's update to the classic "Shaft" starring Samuel L. Jackson, Richard Roundtree & Jessie T. Usher.

VIRTUAL HUGS FOR TEEJ & MEDIA MAVERICKS
STUFF YOU SHOULD ASK
Will I be a more confident interviewee after taking this course? Yes. Media confidence is a fundamental basis of this program. In Maverick Masters, I give you the edge and preparation you need to increase your esteem.
How do I get booked in the Media? Once you have enrolled in the program I teach you not only how to get booked in the media but where to get booked as well AND I show you how to crush the interview.
Am I guaranteed to get booked? Every brand is not a fit for TV, but I have not had one Maverick who has done the work and applied the training, who has not booked themselves on some media outlet in the country.
What if I don’t want to be on TV? It’s OK. I have several Mavericks who joined my program not wanting to be on TV but who are killing it in the radio and print sectors.
Once I complete the course for Massive Media Exposure how can I stay in contact with you? We have monthly Q&As on the THIRD Thursday of every month. The deets will be in your welcome pack.
I want to work with you one on one and am interested in the Media Mavericks Elite program, who do I contact?
For more information about the Media Mavericks Masters program contact Hithere@MediaMavericks.tv
Will I have other support when TeeJ isn’t available?
Yes. Media Mavericks Masters is a community of NOISEMAKERS, new and seasoned who you can lean on for support in addition to TeeJ.
What if I am still afraid to get booked after the course? That is OK we will hold your hand (virtually) and support you until you gain the confidence it takes to make some N.O.I.S.E in TV, Radio, or Print.
Does TeeJ offer any one-on-one coaching? Yes! You can book sessions with TeeJ to work on your soundbites, your storytelling or anything else that's in her wheelhouse to help you.
After you complete assignments up to week four (the 2nd pitching module) and you determine that Maverick Masters is not for you, I will give you a full refund.
