A Candid Conversation With BET Networks Screenwriter Dr. Missy Johnson

Dr. Missy Johnson, BET screenwriter, speaker, coach, and 3x Amazon bestselling author was a rising star in one of America’s Fortune 100 companies, and everything looked perfect from the outside. Suddenly her life changed, and she lost everything she ever believed in or achieved. With a 3% chance of living after a 60 MPH car accident, 47 days in a coma, falling twelve feet, marriage falling apart, and later being diagnosed with Stage 3 Breast Cancer; she asked God for one more chance. With that one more chance, Dr. Missy turned her tragedies into triumphs to create transformation for herself and others worldwide. She is the CEO of Fearless Women Rock LLC, a platform created for women to share their courageous stories through books and brands.


Being a screenwriter, entrepreneur and author can come with a lot of pressure. How do you wear your many hats well?


It is the mindset. Working in corporate amerce as a logistics planner, there was a multiplicity of things I was responsible for, and being a manager, it was my job to make sure deadlines were met within the scope of the business. I use those transferable skills in business and that is how I am able to wear the hats well along with managing my team. You have to get a team.


When did you know you were walking in your divine purpose and began to pursue your career path?


It started after being in sixty miles per hour car accident on the freeway and nobody believe I lived. Not even me. I was like ok God, what’s up. The awakening happened after another incident of being in a medicated coma for forty-seven days that I did not know I. That was the pivot to purpose in my life. The career path I chose versus God’s plan was different and I surrender to God’s plan.


In what ways do you use your platform to make a difference in the world?


Fearless Women Rock is a platform to share your story. What I learned is that women need motivation and support to speak their truth, this platform helps them build confidence in a way they never imagine. The support and sisterhood are real.


What are some must-have items you need while writing a book or script?


You must know the audience you are targeting. Create a budget for the project and develop a marketing plan.

Fearless Women Rock Volume Four Book launching in November 2021, Fearless Women Rock Speaking Tour 2022, and my feature film. hello@askdrmissy.com


What inspirational lesson has the pandemic taught you?
