Carlo has worked with some of the most recognized names in the business, from Franco Cristaldi to Oliver Stone. We talk about his style, his process to composing music, and the film that brought him to America, where he now lives by the ocean.

Deborah Kobylt LIVE: Judy Wilkins Smith

Judy Wilkins-Smith wrote a book that I’d call a must-read: “Decoding Your Emotional Blueprint,” a guide to transformation by detangling multi-generational patterns.

Ever repeat patterns over and over again that aren’t serving you? There’s a reason for that, and Judy’s book leads us on a journey to figure it out so we can lead our best lives moving forward. She shows us how to dig deeper into the hidden language that runs our lives, and how to take control of that.

There’s a lot to cover, and we go through the important nuggets from her book, starting with, “what is an emotional blueprint?”

Join us on all video and audio platforms of #DeborahKobyltLIVE, this is an important discussion on healing those emotions from within. We look forward to having you join us, and please invite your friends, too.

Christina has dedicated her work to discussing Italian cuisine, ingredients, preparation, and even desserts, like the rhubarb bread pudding with orange custard currently you featured on her website. OMG! Today, we speak to her about the Pomodoro San Marzano dell’Agro Sarnese-Nocerino DOP tomatoes. In other words, the king of all tomatoes, a staple in any authentic Italian restaurant and kitchen.

A little background. The San Marzano dell’Agro Sarnese-Nocerino DOP has been growing for over 300 years in the Provence of Salerno. The tomato was a gift from the Viceroy of Peru to the Bourbon King of Naples back in the 1770’s, and it’s considered the best of the best because it grows in a Mediterranean rich volcanic soil saturated in potassium and phosphorus. It’s to die for.

Anyone interested in protecting their business, listen up. We welcome to our show, #MarianaNoli, former president of the Italian American Lawyers Association Los Angeles, founder of NOLI IP & Women’s IP Today. Mariana is a brilliant attorney and provides counsel to individuals and corporations about trademarks, licensing, and all facets of intellectual property law both in the U.S. and abroad.

Mariana founded her own practice, and her interest remains protecting one’s own property and creation. This is particularly important for women, and we discuss how women need to protect not just the money they earn, but the intellectual property and what they have created in business.

We also discuss Mariana’s diverse background and Italian heritage, in addition to her leading the IALA, a group of committed lawyers of Italian descent. The group was created because she said back in the day, Italians didn’t always have the same opportunities as others in the community, so IALA was founded.
