…ADHD molded me into my life and what I learned both to do and not to do. I don’t drink anymore because I only have two speeds — off and all the way on. I’ve learned to set up certain life rules for myself which work to keep me on track. Getting up early, always exercising first thing in the morning no matter how tired I am. (and I’m usually doing it at 4am) eating as healthy as possible with occasional slip ups, etc.

Cooking fatigue is real for us all, but getting out of a recipe rut doesn’t have to mean spending a crazy amount of money or time to make something delicious for you and your family. By approaching everyday ingredients in inventive, new ways, you can transform classic recipes into extraordinary dishes. Every recipe in my cookbook might make you think twice about the creative flavor combinations, but I promise that an open mind will lead you down a culinary path that delivers big on flavor time and time again.

Things always seem to work out, and if you have a positive attitude, good work ethic, and good integrity, you’ll always win in the end.

I had the distinct pleasure of interviewing The Potash Twins.

Labeled by NPR as the “Twin Horns of Joy“, Adeev and Ezra Potash are musicians, entertainers and the hosts of Food Network’s show “The Takeout Twins” (from Executive Producer Andrew Zimmern).

The biggest piece of advice I can give at this time on my journey as an entrepreneur is that you were given this idea, this concept, this talent, this ability, these gifts for a reason. These ideas and gifts were not meant to be kept to ourselves, they were meant to be shared with the world.

Leadership is often defined by leading by example, however I have a slightly different outlook now. I call it leading with strength and empathy. The world would be so much better with a combination of the two. Strength is that ideology of leading with example, but understanding everyone’s differences in their make up and background ultimately is a game changer in leadership. The nuances of everyone’s story and make-up allows a leader to reach so many more people. …


A smile to a passing stranger can also be a very small act of kindness that creates a rippling effect on the world around you.

After his girlfriend at the time broke up with him for another man that ‘could actually please her in bed’ he decided to put down the porn for good and commit to mastering his sexual energy…


Know what the point of your show is (educational, spiritual, to make people laugh, etc.). We are first and foremost comedians so while we’re open to more serious discussions, the ultimate point of our show is to make our audience laugh. But we’re also educational in the sense in that people can just look at us and learn to be hot.

I had the pleasure of interviewing Andrew Michaan and Cole Hersch, the hosts of Podcast But Outside.

Andrew Michaan is the only comedian / actor / writer in Los Angeles. He has performed at dozens of esteemed comedy festivals…


Hire people who are better and more talented than you. I can’t keep up with all the trends, but the creative staff working together brings them to light.

You don’t have all the answers and you need to be willing to admit that you don’t have the answers, because that creates room for growth.

For my series on strong female leaders, I had the pleasure of interviewing Marian Letner.

Marian spent her post-Hopkins years working to make the world a better place. She’d always had what she calls “a side hustle.” She went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in international studies at Hopkins, sharpening her business development chops by taking part in university entrepreneurship competitions.
