Meet Chris Vaca

I found the courage to reinvent myself, now at age 62, I enjoy being An Entrepreneur, Public Speaker, Trainer and Author, as well as having a series of videos on YouTube called Over 50 And Broke and a web-site with the same name.

My latest book Hitting The Tri-Fecta Of Life, A Healthy Mind Body and Pocket has just hit Amazon. It is a light hearted look at achieving happiness. We all want true happiness, but many just do not know how to go about finding a path to happiness.

My book titled “Age Should Never Be An Excuse For Not Succeeding” Restoring Hope In Your life, has been a constant seller on Amazon.

“Many Guru’s say, if you want to grow your wealth for your old age you need to cut your standard of living and live below your means, for me that is not an option, I am looking to raise my standard of living so that I can enjoy life, and the world is full of opportunities.” Chris Vaca On Life.

HealthyChild,HealthyWorld

Healthy Child, Healthy World. That’s makes sense. Challenge is, the increase number of children who are sick is rising at a disturbing rate because they are living in an increasingly unhealthy world. These days, at birth, on average, babies have about 200 unwanted chemicals already flowing through their veins. No wonder cancer is a leading cause of death for children under 15. Facts such as these has motivated “Healthy Child, Healthy World” to empower parents to take action and protect children from harmful chemicals now found in the soil, food, housing materials, cleaning solutions and even the clothes children wear. Our guest, Alexandra Zissu, will explain how small changes can produce a healthy difference. As Editor Director for “Healthy Child, Healthy World”, author of books such as The Conscious Kitchen, food and health journalist writing articles for publications such as Women’s Wear Daily, Teen Vogue, New York Times and Huffington Post, Alexandra is on top of these issues. She will explain what we can do to reverse the toxicity of our world, starting in our homes. It’s not too late to demand corporate accountability, engage in collective action in your community, influence legislation,regulatory reform and vote for safer chemicals and products. It is time to look at the truth in the eye and participate in healthy change, for the health of our children!

Come into our Family Food Experts Kitchen with Alexandra and Co-Host Carolina as we discuss the simple steps each one of us can take to make a “Healthy Child, Healthy World!” Thursday, 1pm ET, on W4WN.com and W4CY.com.

The Connected Table Live October 22: Window on Kevin Zraly

Tune in October 22 for our featured guest and good friend, Kevin Zraly, internationally acclaimed wine educator and best-selling author of Kevin Zraly Windows on the World Complete Wine Course, with over 4 million copies sold.

kevinwine2Kevin Zraly has been described as a naturally gifted speaker who is both refreshingly humble and candid.  His passion for wine and his engaging teaching style helps demystify the ever-changing world of wine. He began his career at age 19 as a waiter and bartender in a New York Times four star rated restaurant in the Hudson Valley, New York.  In the years that followed, Kevin journeyed to vineyards in New York, California, and Europe learning his trade and developing his expertise as a sommelier.

After graduating college Kevin moved to New York City and a chance meeting with author Barbara Kafka and legendary restaurateur Joe Baum led to his hiring as the first cellar master and eventually wine director for the renowned Windows on the World restaurant atop One World Trade Center.  Windows soon became the country’s top grossing restaurant and, with Kevin at the helm of its highly acclaimed wine list, sold more wine than any restaurant in the world.  It was there that he established his Windows on the World Wine School now in its 39th year graduating more than 20,000 students ranging from wine novices and aficionados to top chefs and culinary professionals.  Kevin worked at the Windows on the World Restaurant from the day it opened in 1976 until September 11, 2001.

With his first book, Windows on the World Complete Wine Course published in 1985 (an updated annually), Kevin began translating his classes onto the pages of books where his quick wit and capacity to communicate takes the reader through his worldwide journeys from grape to glass. He is also author of the first book that covers wineries and vineyards in all 50 states, Kevin Zraly’s American Wine Guide and The Ultimate Wine Companion, a compilation of 40 world-renowned wine writers.

His numerous awards and accolades include both the 2011 James Beard Foundation Lifetime Achievement Award and 1993 Outstanding Wine & Spirits Professional of the Year; the 2006 Wine Literary Award, the 2009 Wine Professional of the Year from Santé, the Lifetime Achievement Award from the European Wine Council, and the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Society of Wine Educators.

He is has served as a member of the Culinary Institute of America’s Board of Trustees since 1990 and director of the Sherry-Lehmann/Kevin Zraly Master Wine Classes and the Sherry-Lehmann/Kevin Zraly Wine Club in New York City. He has been featured in The New York Times, People magazine, The Wall Street Journal, GQ magazine, Newsweek, and USA Today  and co-hosted the Food Network’s Wine A to Z.

We will dedicate the full 50 minutes to Kevin and will open our chat room to take your questions. To participate, log on to: www.w4cy.com
