Get ready for blockbuster movie sensation “ALL CREATURES HERE BELOW,” written by and starring my talented brother, David and produced by my amazing guest today, Nacho Arenas! Nacho, a master of filmmaking artistry and one of my dearest friends, shares his life long passion and tremendous journey revealing “the how” behind bringing us stories of hope and inspiration.
From the humblest of beginnings, Nacho was born in Paris and was raised by a doting mother and a strict, extremely disciplined father. “Sometimes what is a virtue is a flaw.” Nacho’s unstable upbringing merely fueled his fascination with film. At age 17, he discounted his father’s disparaging words and worked vigilantly as a bell boy at the Ritz Hotel to save enough money to attend college in America at Jacksonville University, Florida.
But it was at the Ritz Hotel where Nacho truly connected with his inner humility, his grace, his generosity toward others. “If you can help someone without taking away from your family, help them!” Nacho’s candor and kindness toward those of common means was of equal character to his encounters with celebrities including Woody Allen, Sylvester Stallone, Henry Kissinger, Malcolm Forbes, Versace and Keith Herring. Listen in as Nacho describes how he became Madonna’s VIP and through his innate generosity, did not think twice about sharing his experience with a special couple!
Showcasing his talents in his latest work of art, Nacho’s filmmaking genius unravels in “All Creatures Here Below”, Opening May 17th, starring my brother David Dastmalchian. Catch the trailer now on Itunes!

Jennifer Fisher, National Managing Director for Well-being at Deloitte, empowers Deloitte’s people to prioritize their well-being so they can be at their best in both their professional and personal lives. Jen also leads Deloitte’s Inclusion Center of Excellence.
Prior to becoming the National Managing Director of Well-being at Deloitte, Jen had always been a driven professional often overlooked the boundaries needed in her life… “We live in this go, go, go world and we are starting to see the negative impact of not disconnecting.” As she was moving toward her own burnout, Jen reveals the one person who gave her permission to pause and change her career path.
In spearheading this new environment of how well-being would look at Deloitte, Jen found that, “My definition of ‘well-being’ was narrow.” Find out the life altering news Jen received and how this experience transformed the definition of her career and her life, forever.

My incredible guest today is a conversation 30 years in the making! Florida real estate powerhouse Anne Torline not only shares the twist of fate that made her find her true passion in life, but we also discuss how our friendship impacted the rest of my life in a profound, life-altering way.
At a time when the term “hospitality industry” was not a field of study, Anne and I both discovered a way to delve into a career where our initial passions in life drove us. I found Anne, or rather she found me, as an intern on the beautiful island of St John where Anne became one of the most prominent executives at the exclusive Jupiter Island Club Resort. It was there where my relationship with Anne was more than just as my boss, she helped me let go and soar at a very tumultuous time in my life.
While Anne guided me personally and professionally, her own leap of faith was about to transpire. “Everyone has a cross they are bearing, some are just bigger than others.” Listen in a as Anne describes a very painful time in her life that left her no choice but to change her career. Anne CHOSE to not live in woe is me but wow is me!
I am grateful to celebrate Anne and our continued relationship together after all these years! Who has made a difference in your life? Do not miss an opportunity to share with that special someone TODAY the impact they have made in your world!
