Inspired by Breast Cancer and Domestic Violence Awareness Month, the show created the ‘GET SMART’ initiative, a ‘total wellness’ month-long movement designed to empower women to make #smarter decisions in every aspect of their lives. Each week the show features experts on relationships, health, finance, community service and entrepreneurship, as well as guest celebrity advisors who also participate in “post #smarter” twitter parties that have generated more than 45.7 million impressions to date.

The nationally syndicated radio show best known as ‘radio from a woman’s perspective’ also has been tapped by Hyundai to participate in the launch of its Smarter Living 2015 Sonata campaign that celebrates the lives and accomplishments of everyday women who are living life on their own terms and achieving success by making smart choices.

"We applaud Hyundai for seeing the value of women as astute decision-makers and for being committed to take on issues of importance to all women,” says Sheila Eldridge, CEO of Miles Ahead Broadcasting and creator/executive producer of Café Mocha Radio.

The two campaigns have been integrated across all Café Mocha platforms, which include the radio show’s Mocha Mavens blogger network. Visit and #SmarterLiving for more information.
