Questions I ask: What did you want to become when you were a young boy? What sparked your interest and passion for making videos? Why isn’t entertaining suited for everyone?

Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett: The Masterminds Behind Warwick, Aventine, Beso, and Les Deux in Los Angeles

Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett: The Masterminds Behind Warwick, Aventine, Beso, and Les Deux in Los Angeles

Just a few months ago, I had the opportunity of sitting down with two of the greatest minds in the nightlife business. Sylvain Bitton and David Jarrett are a part of a nightlife and hospitality group that currently own two restaurants (Aventine and Beso) and one of the most popular night lounges in LA, Warwick. I don’t believe I’ve ever met someone like Sylvain, who radiates energy. Building long-lasting relationships is so second-nature to him. In the hour that we were sitting at Aventine, several people came up to Sylvain, just to say hi! David Jarrett is the powerhouse on the business side. He handles a majority of the business operations for their group. His experience extends to working for the top restaurants in the world. He turned a concept of a sushi place called Geisha House, into a worldwide phenomenon. Overall, I believe this interview will provide a lot of insight into the business of building relationships, but also give you a new perspective. Questions I ask: What were your responsibilities as an intern at Dolce? When you were in college, did you know you wanted to be in the hospitality business? How do you find investors and how do you get them behind your idea, as a young college student? What’s the most valuable lesson that you’ve learned? If tomorrow, you lost everything you had, where would you go and what would you do? Why do you think the customers are coming in, staying, and keep coming back? Have you had a memorable encounter with someone that you had worked with or met at one of your venues?...

Celebrity Social Media Specialist: 17 Year Old Nik Sharma Works with Jay Sean, Pitbull, and Priyanka Chopra

Meet Nik Sharma I was introduced to Nik Sharma from a family friend during my stay in San Diego. Ever since, it has been a pleasure to get to know him! At such a young age, he understands the market and how to build relationships. If nothing else, he is an inspiration to high school students worldwide. Managing celebrity social media is all Nik Sharma is about. He launched his company Clique Management this year and is going to be ready to hire individuals by summer. Read on to see the progression of his success to working with A-list celebrities! Background Info: Where you live? How old are you? Favorite activities? My name is Nik Sharma and I am 17 years old, living in Encinitas, California. Currently, I am senior in high school. Working is probably my most favorite thing to do because I get to work with such cool people. I used to play a lot of tennis, but got busy with the college admission process. Also, I’m a really big social media junkie. What is an average day like for you? During the weekdays, it’s simply: get up, and go to school. However, I go to school only 3 days a week. Because I go to a private school, they make their schedule around you. I might have a class in the morning and another class after school. It works out great because I can always schedule meetings in between classes. For example, I would have a class in the morning. Then right after, I would have a lunch meeting, which would be followed by a class...
