A very deep and different kind of conversation with inspirational truth-teller Regina Louise on her new book, Permission Granted: Kick-Ass Strategies to Bootstrap Your Way to Unconditional Self-Love, and so much more.

Regina Louise’s bestselling memoirs Somebody’s Someone and Someone Has Led This Child to Believe were made into the award-winning Lifetime movie I Am Somebody’s Child: The Regina Louise Story, which was nominated for a 2020 NAACP Award for Best Director. A summa cum laude graduate of the California Institute of Integral Studies with a Master’s of Fine Arts degree, Regina is a Hoffman Process teacher, workshop facilitator, and motivational speaker who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Her story has been featured in media outlets like NPR’s All Things Considered, Good Morning America, The CBS Early Show, The Tavis Smiley Show, and many more.

With verve and heart, Permission Granted illustrates proven paths from “you couldn’t possibly” to “just watch me!” You’ll begin to deeply understand who you are and what you have been through, moving toward self-compassion and learning to give yourself the care and support you may have lacked.

Author Regina Louise took herself from a childhood in solitary confinement in a residential treatment center to college and the creation of several successful businesses. She now works to show others how to dream and do no matter what. Her book is undeniably inspirational for anyone striving to get out from under limiting beliefs — their own as well as others.
