Episode #7 Season 2 Speaking of Dreams Guest: Paolo Presta – host of the web-series A Spoonful of Paolo Sponsor Alert! I am thrilled to announce Red Spade Environments as my sponsor for the lovespeaks series podcast! Red Spade is the premier residential landscape architecture and design build firm based in Winnetka and Chicago. I hope you will visit their site to see how Red Spade can bring your dream to life! On this podcast we are speaking dreams! I happened to have a front row seat to my guest’s big dream as it exploded on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and I have to say – it was a privilege. Now you can have a front row seat as you listen to Paolo Presta, host of A Spoonful of Paolo, tell you how his dream of becoming a talk show host, coming out and finding the husband of his dreams all happened. This listen will open up your heart in ways you won’t even expect.
