Kitchen Nightmares, Restaurant Impossible, Mystery Diners, Shark Tank, Restaurant Stakeout, The Profit, Restaurant Startup, and the latest, Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hrs to Hell and Back; I think I’ve watched every episode. The insights have been fantastic for further expanding my food service knowledge.
Podcasts help me stay on top of the ever changing world of marketing. My favorite shows are This Week In Google, Social Media Examiner, and MarketingProfs. Non-marketing podcasts, TEDTalks, TED Radio Hour, and Stuff You Should Know.
As for recharge time, I enjoy traveling, camping and boating, and beaches. Family and friends are high on my list as well and fortunate to have many of both.
