If you follow me on Twitter, you saw this awesome photo of Snoop and I from Monday morning. We were at the New York Stock Exchange, ringing the bell.
As much as I'd like to tell you I regularly hang out with Snoop Dogg at the NYSE, there's actually an interesting story behind why we were both there. The two of us were participating in the second annual Mentoring Madness event along with Stephen Hanson, Founder and President of BR Guest Restaurants, and Barry Sternlicht, Chariman and CEO of Starwood Capital Group. We got to share our perspective on business and entrepreneurship to young people who will be the next generation of leaders. mtvU got involved with their Movers & Changers competition too, which you can learn more about on their website.
Also got a chance to catch up with John Whitledge, a good buddy of mine and founder of Trovata, for the Vogue CFDA Awards. Don't we look like a couple of brothers who should be at the Family Reunion we hosted a few months ago for Vogue's Fashion Night Out?
