We had the good fortune of connecting with Tisha Raye and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Tisha, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process behind starting my own business was just thinking about how I needed to LIVE my LIFE and do what makes me happy for once! I knew what I wanted to do and went for what I wanted…BOOM!!!

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
A little bit about what I do as far as work is that I am another podcast host/owner BUT I do things differently. My podcast is more of a hands on…visual podcast and it’s a traveling podcast so yes we go from city to city and state to state! My podcast is called “BOOMin On The Block With TishaRaye” and when I tell you the “BOOMs” be oh so loud babeeeee…just ask anyone that has been apart of the show they will tell you!!!

What sets me apart from other podcasts is that it’s ME and it’s MINE..now what I mean by that is…I don’t have a clone or a twin and I thought of this podcast myself so that’s one thing that set me apart and also everything is original no scripts allowed! Now that I have a manager and a cameraman I make sure they are also involved in planning for the shows as well…we are a TEAM and there is no I in TEAM!!!

One thing I am most proud about is that I STEPPED OUT on FAITH…like literally stepped out of my comfort zone and went for what I wanted! I am proud because I used to be the one that stood behind everything and everyone…the one who was afraid to raise her hand in class because she may say the wrong thing and the one who was told “you can’t” or “you won’t” and slide to the back yep that WAS me…BUT GOD!!! I am proud to say that I am PROUD and EXCITED because I made the step and because I know more is coming for me in a positive way!

I am where I am today because I worked hard and still working hard!!! What I had to do for ME/MYSELF & I was put me first for once, I had to go to school to learn some things in what I have always wanted to do and that’s being in broadcasting/production, then I interned in 2014 at a well known radio station (102JAMZ…Greensboro NC) for 2 1/2 years as an on air personality then I started working WORKING at the same radio station until covid hit and took me out the door in March 2020. As soon as I was no longer working as an on air personality that’s when I really put what I used to write down on paper to work and that’s when BOTB w/ TishaRaye was created.

One good thing about having your own is that it’s YOURS and YOU are the OWNER…now is it easy uhmmm for some maybe but for me it can be a little challenging. Different strokes for different folks but for ME…I have had my good days and I have had my crazy days. Owning your own is a GOAL like you really have to work your behind off and make sure YOU have your business, yourself and your staff in order and on the same level. When I have my crazy days I think about my past good days and how far I have come in my journey then I continue to work…harder! GOD has BLESSED ME with a spirit that refuses to give up…I may be hungry and I may doze off but I will NOT GIVE UP!!! The fact that I work for self is a Blessing and if it’s in you to succeed you will succeed. I make sure I speak positive about my business and I mind my business that’s how I overcome a lot of things as well.

I have definitely learned some lessons along the way and to keep it real I am still learning lessons. It’s okay to learn new things every day and it’s okay to learn lessons along the way. I have learned to work and do my best at whatever I am doing. I learned to be CONSISTENT and to stay both booked and busy. I also learned to just be MYSELF and live MY life. Lastly I learned to be fearless…BOOM!!!

I want the world to know that TishaRaye is cool young lady who loves life and believes life loves her back! My brand is speaking for itself… we love what we do and want the world to know…that’s why it’s a PODCAST!!! We want to share all types of things and be one big happy family in a world full of love! We support while being supported…we love while being loved and it’s greatly appreciated!


Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Well if my best friend was coming to visit me and for a week they better be ready cause we are going out in these streets with no plans at all!!! Road trip…eat, drink dance…doing what we want and having fun while doing it…BOOM!!!

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would like to first thank God for the direction and for continuing to lead, guide and direct my journey! My manager Sheressa (BOOMinRee) for having my back and handling our business in such a professional way and thanks to my cameraman/videographer/director O. Taylor of Taylor’dMadeProductions for playing a huge role with my podcast. Also SHOUT OUT to all my BOOMers for being so dope and showing so much love & support!!!
