Women Helping Women Live Phenomenally

About LLR

LISA ROBINSON
PRESIDENT & FOUNDER

Lisa’s Living Room was formed after President & Founder Lisa Robinson received a generous outpouring of support after being laid off. This support particularly from female friends and female colleagues caused Lisa to ask herself what would happen if these Phenomenal Women whom she met in various stages of her life were to meet and get together in one room. Hence, Lisa’s Living Room, a safe space for women to be their authentic selves by sharing their personal and professional experiences. Our virtual events are open to everyone. We just ask you have an open heart and an open mind.

Our mission is to provide a platform where WOC can educate and empower each other, address issues that matter to us and our community and encourage each other to live our best life and live phenomenally.

In Lisa’s Living Room, YOU GOT THIS & WE GOT YOU!

About President and Founder Lisa Robinson

I founded Lisa’s Living Room as a thank you to the Sister-Friends in my life. I wanted to let them know that their support and friendship has helped me to be the person I have become and am becoming. Raised by no nonsense, intelligent parents who taught my siblings and I to not only get a seat at the table, but own the table, friends have always been my chosen family. Sometimes I choose wrong but as I get older, I have gotten better.

In addition to Lisa’s Living Room, I am a proud member of Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc., Advisory Board Member of Scholarship Plus, member of the Scholarship Committee at Music Biz and active supporter of the Alzheimer’s Association. I have also appeared on a number of music industry panels. My cup runneth over but I make time for the causes and people that are important to me. That of course begins with my family – my husband, 2 children including an HBCU student and our beloved 120 lb American Bulldog, Titan.

The quote I live by is from my favorite author and my esteemed Triumphant Soror Zora Neale Hurston. “Those that don’t got it, can’t show it. Those that got it, can’t hide it.”

Words to Live By from Other Phenomenal Women

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.

Maya Angelou

“Those that don’t got it, can’t show it. Those that got it, can’t hide it.”

Zora Neale Hurston

I admit it I am louder than the average human being and have no fear of speaking my mind. These traits don’t come from the color of my skin but from an unwavering belief in my own intelligence.

Michelle Obama

Why is a starfish in the logo and not a sofa?

The Starfish Story

A young girl was walking along a beach upon which thousands of starfish had been washed up during a terrible storm. When she came to each starfish, she would pick it up, and throw it back into the ocean. People watched her with amusement.

She had been doing this for some time when a man approached her and said, “Little girl, why are you doing this? Look at this beach! You can’t save all these starfish. You can’t begin to make a difference!”

The girl seemed crushed, suddenly deflated. But after a few moments, she bent down, picked up another starfish, and hurled it as far as she could into the ocean. Then she looked up at the man and replied, “Well, I made a difference to that one!”

If you got it or think you don’t and need some support, consider becoming a Sister of Lisa’s Living Room,
