Episode 108 – Sleep Schedule, Cooking with Dino Part 2

This week we have part 2 of our talk with Dino about cooking! We talk salt, hot peppers, how to avoid the fear of screwing up, and the society rules around hospitality. Before that, though, Ursula (the Wombat Co-Host) and I talk about working on-call, making word count, and her current sleep schedule.

We end it all with two great offers from Dino.

Episode 73 – Gift Bags, Dino Sarma (part 1)

This is an episode I’ve been REALLY excited about for a while now. This week we have part one of the interview with one of my favorite people : Dino Sarma. Before we get to that, though, we discuss when and why to send gifts during the holidays for business purposes, as well as the need to pay your contractors and freelancers on time, and how that differs from making payments in a corporate environment.
