Next Week’s Show…

Next week I have celebrity Chef Robert Irvine on the show.  Yes, you know who he is… Star of the Food Network including his hit show, Restaurant Impossible: Back to Business.  Airing on Thursday nights on Food Network this won’t be like any season you’ve ever seen before. Because of COVID-19, restaurants all across the country are struggling to stay afloat and Chef Irvine is there to help solve these new business hurdles.  One of the reasons I wanted to have him on the show is that we both have a common theme for wanting to truly help those businesses struggling out there to make sure they not only survive but thrive during difficult times.  I can’t wait to share this episode with you!
