If you think starting a business is scary - you're absolutely right. Similar to the Hunger Games, the odds are against entrepreneurs everywhere and the numbers don't lie:
 
Bloomberg reports that  8 out of 10 entrepreneurs who start businesses fail within the first 18 months, The SBA paints a revolving door picture of business with over 627,000 new businesses opening each year and about 595,000 businesses closing each year.

About this Episode:

Ahhh, love is always in the air this time of year! Couples celebrate having it, while singletons deepen their commitment to finding it. In fact, the fear of being single is real, as a new study finds more than half of respondents admitted to staying in unhappy relationships because they’re afraid of being alone.

 

If you’re single and tired of mingling or looking for a new love, eHarmony has a Valentine’s Day gift for you!

 

Grant Langston, eHarmony’s newly appointed and charismatic CEO, isn’t wasting any time taking love “made in cyber heaven,” to the next level. At the helm of Langston’s new leadership, eHarmony is bringing humor to the forefront of online dating, for the first time in history.

 

After years of scientific research, eHarmony has identified nine core dimensions of humor at the root of millions of successful first dates “and” happily ever afters. On this episode, we discuss:

 

  • How humor plays a major roles in “finding the one” and the nine types of humor from “wit and word-play” to “self-deprecating”
  • Men vs. Women “By the numbers:” new data looking at how the two groups stack up in their views on Valentine's Day, love and money.

About Grant:

Grant Langston has been with eHarmony since its inception in August, 2000. He has influenced almost every aspect of the brand – from his early days as a writer to later years managing marketing, customer care, content, social media, and the trust and safety departments. A passionate advocate of eHarmony’s mission, Grant never misses an opportunity to speak about compatibility and its importance in a successful, long-term relationship.

Prior to life at eHarmony, Grant enjoyed his time as a writer in the TV and radio advertising arena, and as an operations manager for a music industry marketing firm. He has a B.A. in Political Science from Auburn University.

About this Episode:

We make ‘em and we break ‘em all the time – those goals to eat better and get in shape. 

 

Now, we’re several weeks into the New Year and the cravings hit. You resisted those salty and sweet treats, biscuits at breakfast, and creamy fettuccini alfredo. But now they are calling your name. How do you resist?

 

Liz Josefsberg is a health, wellness and weight loss expert who has helped celebrities like Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Simpson on their weight loss journey. She joins us on the Business, Life, and Coffee podcast with some crave-busting ideas to help us make better choices and stay on, and in some cases, get back on, the right path.

About Liz Josefsberg:

It’s made even sweeter by an intimate understanding of the challenges in achieving such a goal, especially when it includes weight loss. Liz Josefsberg’s own weight loss story is a classic tale. She spent the majority of her life battling her weight. She was first enrolled in a diet program at just 12 years old, and valiantly fought to lose extra weight into her early thirties. Liz spent years yo-yo dieting because she thought she liked the idea of extreme diets and punishing workout routines to atone for bad behavior. In time, she finally learned she could eat real food and lose weight. Liz also found the support that had certainly gone missing in her previous weight loss attempts and she educated herself about livable activity levels and learned she needed to change certain behaviors around food in order to achieve long-term results.

 

Currently, Liz Josefsberg is a health, wellness and weight loss expert with over 15 years in the industry. Liz worked for several years as the Director of Brand Advocacy and a Leader for Weight Watchers, until she started her own consulting firm as a wellness expert.

 

Liz is likely best known for her hands-on involvement helping Oscar-winning actress and musician, Jennifer Hudson lose weight and transform her life. She also helped Jessica Simpson shed over 50 pounds of baby weight (twice!). Other celebrity clients include Charles Barkley, Katie Couric, Suze Orman and Amber Riley. Liz counsels both high-profile talent and everyday clients in all areas of weight loss, balance and nutrition.  She is also the author of the revolutionary “Success Handbook” (2013, Weight Watchers) and “Find Your Fingerprint”, sold Nationally in all Weight Watchers locations.

 

 

She consults in the wearable technology sector, creates weight loss programs for forward-thinking entities and is deeply involved in helping technology enabled weight loss and health devices come to market.

 

Liz’s perspective is derived from her own weight loss success and insatiable quest for the newest information, technology and education available to help men and women achieve their goals with more ease in the everyday world.

 

Liz has consulted for companies across the country, including for one of the largest fitness chains in the U.S, Life Time Fitness, Misfit Wearables, LEVL , LifeReimagined, Stash and more. Her insights on behavior modification, consumer behavior, customer service and the health market have made her a sought after expert in the field.

 

An N.A.S.M. Certified Personal Trainer and Nutrition Exercise Specialist, Liz’s deep knowledge of the role of exercise in the weight loss process is attributed to her personal journey as well as working daily in the field with hundreds of people to help them achieve their lifestyle goals.

 

Additionally, Liz was recently and important team member at Turner Broadcast as they began creating their newest Health and Wellness digital television network Upwave. Liz looks forward to a collaboration, as Executive Producer and talent alongside Charles Barkley, on an AOL digital show created with her husband on health and wellness. In 2016 she will also complete her first solo book outside of her collaborations with Weight Watchers on weight loss and surviving the difficult environment of today.

Liz has served as an ambassador and national spokeswoman with appearances on television shows including Good Morning America, QVC, The Dr. Oz Show, The Oprah Winfrey Show, Katie! and The Doctors. Her background in theatre and production made her well-suited to develop and guest host a new segment for NBC’s LXTV called Weight Loss Wednesdays.  In both 2011 and 2012, Liz co-hosted and appeared on episodes with Dr. Oz promoting and supporting the first-ever Dr. Oz’s Transformation Nation: Million Dollar You program as not only an expert but a celebrity judge.

Liz’s Awesome Baked Chicken Wings

The magic component of these wings is to marinate them for a couple of hours in the fridge in Bolthouse Farms Yogurt based Ranch dressing! It adds an extra layer of flavor and makes them crisp up on the outside while super tender on the inside!! My family can not get enough!

 

Makes 30 wings

Buffalo Sauce:

  • 1-2 tablespoon salted butter, melted
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  1. Place wings in a large bowl or Ziplock bag covered in Bolthouse Farms Ranch Dressing. Let sit for an hour or more.

 

  1. When ready Preheat oven to 400°F.
