Living the Dream: Why I Couldn’t Avoid Starting My Business

PRESENTED ON MAY 03, 2018

There are many reasons why starting a business is a horrible idea. You just had a child, your business model isn't sustainable, people don't want to pay for you to help them make better decisions with their finances. Screw rationality. Those are the reasons why Lucas Casarez thought he had no other choice. He discusses why Family, Values, and Love of Possibilities has propelled him to living a life that he loves.

Improv Madness: The Day I Followed My Boss Home

BY VANESSA TORTOLANO
@ VOL 17 ON APR 14, 2016

Improv Madness: Comedians from 2 local Improv Troops made 20x20 presentations for each other. The audience suggested the topic, in this case, "The Day I Followed My Boss Home." Hilarity ensued.

Vanessa Tortolano is the co-owner and founder of NessAlla Kombucha. When she’s not trying to take over the world with her home grown bacteria-yeast hybrids she affectionately refers to as her “booch” army, Vanessa is probably thinking about how to take over the world with her home grown bacteria-yeast hybrids affectionately referred to as her “booch” army. She joined Monkey Business Institute in 2010 as a means to find the perfect comedy WMD to arm her booch troops. She’ll readily admit that her world takeover plan needs a little more time to ferment. Aside from that she also sings and plays instruments. Drink kombucha.
