EP#27 Steve Distante – Driving Teslas. Living Electric

Steve DIstante is an Entrepreneur and car aficionado from Long Island, New York. He started his first business when he was only 5 years old. He is the CEO of Vanderbilt Securities LLC, member of Long Island Exotics Club and an incoming president of Entrepreneurs Organization(EO)

I was fascinated by his love and enthusiasm for electric vehicles(EV). He owns the model S, P90D with Ludacris mode, The Roadster 2010 and other non-teslas. The first part, We talked about his experience with the cars among other things. One of his car’s number plate is “USA FAN, THE EMPIRE STATE, ZERO EMISSIONS”

This Podcast is relevant on so many levels, its appeals to car geeks, electric car geeks and electric car doubters. I asked Steve the questions that the above groups might ask and his answers are definitely valid because he plays with these toys. It was a fascinating talk really.

I did a part 2 with Steve where we talked about Entrepreneurship, his advice and philosophies are quite unconventional and profound. I recommend that you check it out and subscribe.

EP#26 ANNIKA FRIESEN- GIRL BOSS, TRAVEL, FERNWEH SOCIETY

“If you’re a man and super organised, you are a such a good worker. If you’re a woman and organised, they say you’re “bitch”-Annika Friesen, my favorite take away from this Podcast.

Annika Friesen is a business person, blogger, traveler, accountant and consultant. She is the creator of Fernwehsociety.com, a blog about lifestyle, travel, and entrepreneurship.

She was bitten by the travel bug while she was only 10 months old and she never look back. She has traveled alot and lived many places while doing all sorts of odd jobs just to stay on the road. That just reminds me of how travel or new places forces you to go out of your comfort zone and try new things that you wouldn’t do in your home town.

-Her story
-Her transition from 9-5 to doing what she love.
-How living in a foreign country affects your life

EP#25 EVERYONE IS SELLING YOU SOMETHING

Everyone is trying to sell you something. From social media, dates and everything else.

The question is “Are you the seller or the buyer?”, “How many of the things you own/buy are really based on your decisions, preferences as opposed to persuasion through different mediums of advertising?”, “What are the things you’re really passionate about as opposed to interests based on unfiltered desire?”. I also talked about how Mark Zuckerberg’s Jarvis app motivated myself.

This is my very first solo episode and I talk about all that.
