Eating 8020 to Premiere tonight

Eating 8020 to Premiere tonight!

So with the move to the new house finished thanks to the help and support of great friends and family this past weekend it is time to break the bottle off the bow of my new project for 2013.

Eating 8020 with Dan Fontaine will air every other Tuesday evening at 9:00PM EST. It will feature recipes and dishes that represent the 80/20 nutritional lifestyle I have been living since June. In short, I eat Vegetarian 80% of the time and allow myself 20% time for things that are not Vegetarian for situations that crop up where vegetarian food is not available.

Eating 8020 will be live from my kitchen and will be shot with 2 web cams and 2 Macbooks and will be hosted on Google+ Hangouts On Air.

I have to thank Larry Fournillier for asking me to make my Vegan Burgers on his show, Learn to Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier back in late 2012 and subsequently encouraging and supporting me launch my own show.

Tonight I will be making two dishes with Tempeh. Be sure to tune to to watch!

New Year with New Challenges

So 2013 kicked off with a bang! We finally closed on our new home!!! Now we are in full fledged pack and fix up mode. My awesome wife is running point on the packing front while my awesome Dad is running point on a fair share of the fix up front.

So it is a New Year with new challenges both personally and professionally. Towards the end of 2012 I planned on posting my 2013 Goals post but things were so hectic I did not get around to it. Shame on me. This is not the post to flesh those out but I will soon.

Some challenges for 2013 on the personal front will be to successfully launch my online cooking show Eating 8020 with Dan Fontaine. My first show was postponed due to the limbo state we are in with the move. That said, my first show will be Tuesday, January 22nd at 9:00PM EST and can be seen here or over at

Eating 8020 will be an excellent outlet for me to tap into both my inner foodie and entertainer. We are partially renovating the kitchen in the new house and I can’t wait to have my new ” set ” completed.

To start the year that will be a one my primary challenges. hosting and putting on a quality program and build an audience.

Secondary challenge will be to help grow Truepro.Org which is a vendor free automotive community where candid discussion occur between automotive peers of all varieties. From Service, Sales, Internet, Office and everything in between, Truepro is the place to get real talk advice from other industry people when it comes to products, process and more.

Professionally, there too many challenges to be listed out here. I believe in the onward and upward approach and we need to keep ahead of our competition in the digital e-commerce space. Mobile SEM, Training, CRM 2.0, LBS, Social will certainly head up the challenges I will be faced with. I welcome challenge with open arms. It will keep me on my toes.

I look at this young 2013 and welcome these and the many more challenges I will face. I am thankful for the support and love of my family, the respect of my peers and connections I have made in the last 2 years via Google + and other Social mediums.
