How do entrepreneurs get to where they are? Did they magically just arrive there? Do they have a different mind set than so many others?

This week we get a rare opportunity to ask those, and many other questions, to Phil Busardo. From early days to now, we're going to take a look at his path that has brought him to traveling the world for the products he and Dimitris Agrafiotis created.

In the world of radio dj's, this is one man who has seen it all. A career spanninng more time than might be polite to say, in cities from tiny specks to huge metropolitan, his wealth of the industry is rivaled by few.

How often have we been driving down the road, tapping our foot to the music, when the DJ comes on the radio and tells us about the news or new place to hang out? Yet, how often did we ever stop to think what the gu...

What has 110 to 150 beats per minute, played in sets by various DJ's, where the music is non stop for hours at a time? If you said electronic music, you're right. Trance, House, Jungle, Deep House, Ambient, Hardcore, Industrial... and this is only mentioning a few of the genre’s that are known collectively as electronic music.

Yet the evolution of the genre (like many things time has changed) has lost some of it's roots,...

Many people have the aspiration of climbing the corporate ladder. Director, Vice President and then the top, CEO.

That’s where the buck stops, the position of ultimate authority within any company or organization.

Yet many may not be ready for the pitfalls that are attached to that very same position. Fewer still would come to the conclusion that being a CEO is much more than a career move. Like most jobs, you either seem to have a k...

They can be some of the ugliest words in the english language: anxiety, depression and PTSD.
We all know someone who is currently trying their best to deal with depression. They put a glad face on it when we see them, but in their own home, they feel trapped, unable to go on.
We also know someone who is having issues with anxiety, not knowing what is happening next. They live their lives with a suffering we just don't see.

Back in the heyday of the 80's and 90's when big tobacco companies could run print adds, there was Joe the Camel, the Marlboro Man and this guy, the Winston Man, David Goerlitz.

From being the face of Winston cigarettes to today, his life has taken several radical changes. Speaking out against the large tobacco company left him demonized and publicly shamed, he has taken his fight to even greater lengths.

You see them on TV, you see them in the movies, in commercials, they're everywhere!
What are they? Actors, and actresses.

People often think it might be an easy job, or a cushy job, or a job with fame and fortune. Often, we do not take time to think of the entire cast you see on the screen. The people there, just in the background. The job they have? Multi-faceted, demanding, long hours and so much more.
