In this episode you will meet Lisa Dawn Miller. She is talented, beautiful, an amazing singer, and a powerful business woman.
For a few years we were business partners. We had fun, we disagreed, and then learned from our differences.
She showed me the value of learning how to code, and taught me, by demonstrating it, that saying no to what you don’t want is a good thing.
Lisa is an artist that understands, embraces, and celebrates the art of business. She thinks outside the paradigm. She is not afraid to put out into the world what she wants to accomplish, and then she goes after it with a plan and by listening to her heart.
She loves synergy and collaboration, and the outcome is beautiful. Even if you can’t sing and song, she will inspire you to sing your dream, which all of us can, and must do.
Come with me and spend some time with this powerful woman as we shift the story … together…

Lisa Dawn Miller spent the first part of her life as a stockbroker, working her way up to First Vice President of Investments at Morgan Stanley. With over two decades of experience in business, Miller decided to turn her interest back to her first love – the arts. Now, as a producer, director (live theatrical and video), writer, performer, songwriter and president of the Hackett Miller Company, Inc., she has been able to combine her creative and business sides to deliver high level entertainment which has been enjoyed by audiences worldwide.

Lisa is the producer for Hackett Miller’s flagship show, “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show,” which tours successfully throughout the U.S., to great critical acclaim and sold-out audiences, Broadway World writes, “Best Show of the Year” for its recent Broadway run at the prestigious Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts. New York Cabaret Scenes writes, “Lisa Dawn Miller’s show at The Metropolitan Room was one of the best shows we have ever seen. Very rarely do you get to see a singer cast a magic spell on stage and have the audience in the palm of her hand.”
Lisa has produced numerous videos including, the behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of “Sandy Hackett’s Rat Pack Show,” and several music videos, including for her son, 14 year-old singing sensation and actor, Oliver Richman – who has already shared the stage with Stevie Wonder and her 9 year old daughter, dancer/singer/actor, Ashleigh Hackett. Miller is currently producing and directing a documentary about her father and a live musical production entitled, “For Once In My Life – The Great American Ron Miller Songbook.”
Jeff Rossen, Chicago Editor/Recordings Reviewer, Cabaret Scenes Magazine said of Miller’s “Fly Away” CD debut, “Take a collection of songs of exceptional quality and breadth, set them in striking arrangements and then turn the lyrics and melodies over to a singer whose voice can cut straight through the heart, and you’ve got one heck of a dazzling debut.”
Miller is currently working on her new, highly anticipated CD, which includes original songs, written and produced by Miller and her writing partner, Mark Matson. The CD will also include several newly discovered songs from the Ron Miller catalogue. She can be heard in the recent film, “When Comedy Went To School” in which she produced and performed the film’s opening and closing theme songs.
