​Happy 2018! This is the first authentic audio pod episode of the New Year and it features a conversation with entrepreneur Tony Madalone. Tony is the owner of Fresh Brewed Tees & Tready Shoes. He was on the podcast back in 2017 for a conversation during his run for mayor of the Cleveland. Now, in 2018 after an unsuccessful but memorable bid for public office, Tony and I sat down for a vibrant conversation at his Fresh Brewed Tees headquarters in Cleveland.

In this episode we talk many things, including:
Cuba Gooding Jr. and his karaoke skills.
Tony’s return to the private sector, his new projects & growing his brand.
Strategies and motivation for starting your own business and living your dream.
What it’s like to run for mayor (the good, bad and ugly).
The genius of Lavar Ball.
NBA Basketball, the Cleveland Cavaliers, and who the best player in world is.
