Coach | Business Owner | Producer

Heyyyy!  Welcome to my page.  Here are a few milestones of my life and career.

Coaching Online

The Starting Blocks is who I am. Others have always sought me out for advice, help, coaching, or training.


I love the power of video, audio, and technology. I can produce in my sleep.


When I was a server, I treated my station as if it was a small business. I formed my first production company while in college.

Hi, I’m Yolando Mitchell Brown

Student of Life

I am a girl from East Saint Louis, Illinois, with a dream.

I always knew what I wanted to do in life. It just took me a little time to figure it all out. In 2000, I decided to go back to school. At that time, my husband and I had moved back to Southern California.

I was waiting tables at a trendy restaurant in Beverly Hills, attending L.A. Valley College, being a member of the ASU, and creating a talk show. As Commissioner of Environmental Affairs, I began mentoring and volunteering.

Two years later, I graduated from LAVC. I transferred to California State Dominquez Hills on a Presidential Scholarship. Around this time, I started to tape segments for my talk show, Every Way Woman, in my home. I was learning about a business on the spot.

One day while sitting in class, I listened to former students share their real-world experiences. They had formed a production company. I had an ah-ha moment.

For the next two years, I was a full-time wife, student, and producer while working as a server, picking up gigs, and interning.

After graduating, I enrolled in a Masters of Arts program at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona. By this time, I was producing the show at a studio in Pasadena. One day I was told by a staff member at the studio to get out. He said, “Yolando, this is not your studio.”

I opened Inavizion Media in 2015. Did I mention that this was around the same time two teenagers came to live with us? Three years later, I opened My Creative Space.

If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. James 1:5

I Wore Many Hats and I Loved It!

The rundown

I triple-checked every detail when it came to the rundown.





In 2004, I was a married student juggling projects and internships while working a full-time job as a server. I decided to create a talk show for everyday women.
