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

Hi Antoinette, what are you inspired by?
I’m inspired by passion. When I interview people and hear/feel their passion about their craft it motives me to be more passionate and driven about mine.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My approach and interview style sets me apart from other podcasters. Another aspect that sets me apart and what I’m most proud this season is being a live podcast. Having a live show is nerve racking because anything can happen but exciting for the same reason.

It hasn’t always been easy and I wouldn’t be here today without the grace of God, faith, dedication, and perseverance. I had plenty of challenges with the biggest being my own self doubt. I can be my own biggest fan yet my biggest critic. Deciding on a logo was a serious struggle. I revised my logo about five times before I finally had the one. Now my main challenge is booking. Working around everyone’s busy schedule including my own can be tricky. When it comes to overcoming these challenges I step out my comfort zone and make necessary adjustments.

A crucial lesson I’ve learned is support matters the most in this industry. Support is the difference between a podcast failing or succeeding. Another lesson is staying out of your own head/way. At times, we allow all the negative thoughts to cloud our judgment but if we focus on the positive and work toward achieving a positive outcome the possibilities are endless.

I run an interview-style podcast known for being funny yet raw and honest. The thing I want the world to know about me is my podcasts has allowed me a chance to interview some talented, unique, intelligent, and driven individuals. No Frontin The Podcast gives my life purpose and gives other a stage to let their light shine.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
If I had a friend visiting Dallas I would first take them to the Sushi Yamazaki Bar & Grill because they have sushi rolls named after cities in the metroplex. Later that evening we would check out Dallas Poetry Slam or Deep Ellum for live music and drinks. The next day we would Sunday Funday starting off with brunch at Ida Claire. After brunch we would enjoy hookah and patio at Turkey D.A.M. Last stop of the day would be Bitter End for some good music, drinks, and people.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this segment to my family and friends who support and love means the world to me. My mom and my mentor Candi KLynn (LaKatheryn Shaw) have been the most influential people during my journey. My mom is my biggest fan and listens to every episode. While, CaniKLynn invited  me to be a guest on her podcast and the idea for No Frontin the Podcast was born.  I started No Frontin The Podcast in 2019 with the guidance of CandiKlynn and support the of my mother. Now I’m on my third season and the co-host of another podcast, Situationship Talk.
