Adam is a fellow podcaster. His show, The Direct message, is awesome and on the top of my podcast subscription list. Needless to say, Adam and I had plenty to talk about. We hit it off and had a great conversation, hopefully not the last, enjoy…
Connections make the world go ‘round. Direct Message (The DM) borrows its name from reaching out to strangers across the web, whether it be for friendship, advice, a job, or whatever – it’s about making the world a bit smaller for one’s self by striking up a conversation. You never know you might meet and what you might learn. Adam Ornelas brings listeners into his “DMs” with connections he’s made with movers, shakers, and taste makers across food, business, and fun. Candid conversations about where they’ve been, what they’re doing, and where they want to go.
