This is a bonus episode, something new I’m trying out. Don’t worry, your regular scheduled interviews will continue uninterrupted.

This episode is just me getting behind the mic without an interview, talking to you and sharing whats on my heart and mind. I’m going to do these bonus episodes about once every month and I’m hopping this will be another way for me to connect with you all who listen to my show.

If you like this, let me know. If you don’t like it, let me know. Let me throw this spaghetti against the wall to see if it sticks! 🙂

 

Here’s what I ramble about in this bonus episode:

• I introduce myself and tell a little about who I am. I know, I should have done this a looong time ago.

• Why am I doing this show? What are my hopes?

• My restaurant gigs and an interesting experience I had at a table a few weeks ago.

• My word for the year: Value.

• Some shoutouts.

• How can you help support the show? My Amazon Affiliate Link

 

Thanks for listening. I really appreciate each and every one of you. Please let me know how I can serve you. 🙂
