When Beyonce's "Lemonade" came out, Yvette Noel-Schure, her 20+ year publicist, admitted that she saw an opportunity on a global level for a generational healing to begin happening. In her first-sit-down conversation with the millennial (Elaine Welteroth, Editor in Chief of Teen Vogue) she paved the road for without even knowing it decades as Editor of Black Beat Magazine in 1986, Yvette shares intensely personal stories, while Elaine goes in-depth on her creative process, for Teen Vogue, and now her TV credits including Grown-Ish, the power of surrendering instead of hustling, and what this...

John is the CEO of the Ruhlin Promotional Group and works with fortune 500 companies, global non-profits, major sports teams and others to appreciate those most important in their personal or professional lives. His team researches, plots and plans the very best, most unexpected and most thoughtful gifts for those who deserve.

John and Jake are old friends.They talk western culture and its transactional relationships, great stories from the front lines of winning business and lifetime friendships through thoughtful gift giving and the personal side to the art of appreciation.

At the top of the show on the "slightly above average panel," Jake, Max, Vivienne and Topher talk about working with and dating your boy/girlfriend and the best way to avoid the pitfalls.
