When you know you’re the solution to someone’s problem or the answer to someone’s prayer, you have a responsibility to FIND YOUR VOICE and MAKE SOME NOISE!
And TeeJ Mercer’s genius can help you do just that.
As the Chief NoiseMaker of the Media Mavericks Academy, TeeJ uses her insider expertise as a 20+ year Hollywood veteran to coach her Mavericks how to unapologetically rock their own genius on networks like ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, CW and on shows like The Steve Harvey Show, The Doctors, and Dr. Oz. TeeJ’s Mavericks have also displayed their authority in The Huffington Post, Psychology Today, Inventors Digest, The Breakfast Club, and too many radio shows and podcasts to count.
A four-time author who is nicknamed The Walking Exclamation Point and The Beast in Media Streets, TeeJ has spent over two decades influencing the lives of millions through her storytelling for both behind and in front of the camera.
As an award-winning TV Editor, her resume is peppered with notable names such as VH1, MTV, Animal Planet, SpikeTV, OWN, Bravo, Dreamworks Studios, The Walt Disney Company, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Access Hollywood, The Bachelor, Swamp People, Clean House, My Cat from Hell, LA Hair, and Bar Rescue to name just a few. Publicity and DVD features for gigantic box office hits such as Shrek, Chronicles of Narnia, The Incredibles, Cars, Princess Diaries, Cinderella are also in her arsenal, plus much more.
She also was the Behind-The-Scenes Producer for comedic giants Kevin Hart and Tiffany Haddish’s $100-million comedy of 2018, Night School as well as Summer 2019’s hit Shaft with the billion-dollar icon Samuel L. Jackson, and legendary Richard Roundtree, plus Jessie T. Usher.
As a loquacious child who loved to tell stories, TeeJ’s mother often begged and tried to bribe her with the promise of coins for her piggy bank if she would just give her mom five minutes of no talking. Let’s just say that TeeJ’s piggy bank was never in danger of overflowing. But the tables eventually turned. TeeJ got the last laugh as she regularly reminds her mom that people now pay her to run her mouth as an international speaker. Plus, her listeners seem to enjoy her shenanigan-filled stories via her podcast, Random Ramblings & Rhetoric with TeeJ Mercer.
In fact, she was one of the featured speakers in the premiere episode of The Round, on BET’s sister network, CentricTV, now called “BETHer.”
With her episode ranked as the series’ highest rated episode, TeeJ delivered a powerful talk called, Resilience Is My Reality, where she shared one of her greatest secrets. At the height of her stellar Hollywood career, she was also a battered wife who determined that surviving was not good enough for her. She resolved that THRIVING was her non-negotiable standard, and thrive she did after she left.
Today, with a mission to make God smile and be Somebody’s Answered Prayer, TeeJ wakes up everyday committed to love on God’s kids by living up to her moniker as The World’s Greatest Hugger.
