Today’s guest on the show is DJ CherishTheLuv also known as Cynthia. I met Cynthia back in the Spring and within a few minutes, I knew I wanted to invite her to be a guest on the show. Fast forward to a few days ago, our schedules aligned and we finally had a chance to meet in the East Village. I don’t want to give it away but here is some of what we talked about, growing up in the East Village, creating attractive design, the growth mentality, listening to your intuition, public speaking, talking to her phoenix, getting her doctorate in survival, meeting Oprah and declarations under good circumstances.

Today’s guest is my friend Natty Boom. I saw that Nat was in town from Paris and I invited her to be on the show. Turns out she wasn’t visiting, she was here to start a new chapter. So we met up in Union Square and just kicked it. In this episode we talk about growing up in the DMV, her thoughts on LA, learning new languages, siesta, fashion week, moving to Paris and much much more.

That’s enough intro for one show, please enjoy.
