Alex Tsakanikas voluntarily didn’t speak English for almost an entire academic year in elementary school until his father sat in his class to find out why he was failing.

019. Jaime Perez – “The Perez 5” (IT’S MY BIRTHDAY EPISODE!)
In an alternate universe, Jaime Perez and I are brothers that make blockbuster movies after both being inspired by Robert Rodriguez’s “Rebel without a Crew”. Fortunately for him, we aren’t related and he is still a success story as one of 5 brothers who grew up in Rockford, Illinois. Jaime tells me all about how break dancing kept people away from gang banging, dealing with court drama, becoming the oldest sibling, making the documentary film “ROC ILL” (scheduled to release on June 20, 2020) and watching his family become closer than ever. We definitely GEEK OUT about being “disciples” of Robert Rodriguez at the beginning, but then we get down to business. This episode was cranked out in the 3×5 studio in Chicago!

Dr. Dave Aron is a Professor of Marketing, Director of Graduate Programs and Executive Education at Dominican University. He’s graduated with his BA from Northwestern University, his MBA from The Ohio State University and got his PhD from the University of Michigan.

I got a chance to sit down with my former professor to hear about his life growing up in a warm household while collecting comic books and failing to become a master thief.

014. Soli Santos – “We can’t all die at the same time.”
Today, March 4th, is my big sister Sofia’s Birthday!!! So, I decided to have one of my favorite people on the show. Soli Santos is a stand up comedian, personal trainer, works in social services, can fix almost anything in her home and has studied mixed martial arts. She’ll tell you she’s been able to do all that because of hard work and dedication. I think it comes from avoiding getting jumped by her three brothers on a daily basis while growing up in Chicago. Today, she’ll tell us how she survived that childhood while building a relationship that has taken them all to heights most people never experience. Literally! Also, I have a fit about someone parking in my parking spot. Happy Birthday, Sof!!! This episode was cranked out in the 3×5 Studio in Chicago! IG:SoliComedy / www.SoliSantosComedy.com
