Coincidence...I think not!
Biography
I have had a passion for restaurants, service and food since I was a child. I literally grew up in this business, beginning with potato peeling in my aunt's catering kitchen. I spent 12 years working in the service industry. There are very few jobs in a restaurant that I have not undertaken; from washing dishes to tending bar. I have served some of New York's finest food and wine. Working in the restaurant industry afforded me the opportunity to pay my way through school and pursue another great love: art and photography. But the call of this industry drew me back into a chance to open my own place with friends. Needless to say...slap me hard if I ever try to do that again!!! That experience was a valuable lesson. Now I take that lesson and apply it to helping restaurant professionals and small business owners.
Advance Me, Inc is a company who has the entrepreneur and his spirit at the heart of their business. I can relate to that! So I spend my time informing restaurant owners that there is an alternative way to derive working capital for their businesses. I leverage a business' future credit card sales for a lump sum of cash today. Its a great program that was designed to fit this industry like a glove.
I absolutely love what I do. Who wouldn't love hanging around in restaurants with top owners, top chefs and top professionals?! I appreciate every opportunity I get to sit with an owner and consult how to inject a dose of cash into their operation, and its best application. I admire and respect all business owners who put in the hours on their feet and the mental energy it takes to build something from the ground up and continue to keep it growing.

The Little Entrepreneur That Could...I Think I Can, I Think I Can

Posted on April 3, 2008 at 6:30am 0 Comments

We all know the story of The Little Engine who faced an uphill climb. For every small business owner, some days it feels the same. In today's market place we are faced with staggering food and fuel costs, limitless competition and a consumer more finicky then ever before. Just like the mountain that lay before The Pony Engine, today's small business owner faces intense and similar obstacles. The moral of that story was to teach children the value of optimism. Let's face it, our businesses need… Continue

Jimi Hendrix music...a GREAT touch. I consult with some small growing restaurant companies in the US and Mexico. Can you help with all/part of the financing for an established Mexican restaurant concept planning to enter the US market?

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)

Pick up a book, magazine or screen, and more than likely you'll come across some typography designed by Matthew Carter. In this charming talk, the man behind typefaces such as Verdana, Georgia and Bell Centennial (designed just for phone books -- remember them?), takes us on a spin through a career focused on the very last pixel of each letter of a font.

TED: Jeremy Kasdin: The flower-shaped starshade that might help us detect Earth-like planets - Jeremy Kasdin (2014)

Astronomers believe that every star in the galaxy has a planet, one fifth of which might harbor life. Only we haven't seen any of them -- yet. Jeremy Kasdin and his team are looking to change that with the design and engineering of an extraordinary piece of equipment: a flower petal-shaped "starshade" that allows a telescope to photograph planets from 50,000 kilometers away. It is, he says, the "coolest possible science."

TED: Norman Spack: How I help transgender teens become who they want to be - Norman Spack (2013)

Puberty is an awkward time for just about everybody, but for transgender teens it can be a nightmare, as they grow overnight into bodies they aren't comfortable with. In a heartfelt talk, endocrinologist Norman Spack tells a personal story of how he became one of the few doctors in the US to treat minors with hormone replacement therapy. By staving off the effects of puberty, Spack gives trans teens the time they need. (Filmed at TEDxBeaconStreet.)

TED: Jennifer Senior: For parents, happiness is a very high bar - Jennifer Senior (2014)

The parenting section of the bookstore is overwhelming—it's "a giant, candy-colored monument to our collective panic," as writer Jennifer Senior puts it. Why is parenthood filled with so much anxiety? Because the goal of modern, middle-class parents—to raise happy children—is so elusive. In this honest talk, she offers some kinder and more achievable aims.
