18 Jun June 18, 2013 – Comedians Dan Nainen & Jim Melis
Will broadcast June 18th, 2013 on Liberty Express Radio
Former Intel Engineer turned Comedian
Dan Nainan started his stand-up career, oddly enough, during his time with Intel to overcome his fear of public speaking. It started out as a mere hobby, but it quickly grew. By his third show, he was presenting to 2,500 Intel sales reps from around the world, and he has now performed for President Obama! Dan has opened for some of the greats like Robert Schimmel and Russel Peters and has performed for the likes of Hilary Clinton, Michael Bloomberg, Steve Wozniak, CNN’s Dr. Sanjay Gupta, and Yoko Ono. Did we mention that his material is 100% safe for work/ kids? He comes on to tell us his story and how he has made his personal brand the focus of his entrepreneurial journey!
Jim Melis has served a a finance expert in New York for the past 20 years in some of the most hostile of industries like health care, education, banking, and hospitality. Everybody knows that if you can survive in New York, then you can survive anywhere on Earth. If you can survive in New York as a finance guy in heavily regulated industries, you might be able to survive in space as well. Not only did Jim Melis survive, he brought a New York college that was $12 million in debt to being one of the most financially stable colleges in the nation! During this impressive career, Jim went out to pursue improvisation comedy, a skill which he now incorporates into his business as a CFO consultant. Listen in to hear how he is helping the corporate world with humor! Also, make sure to check him out @ JimMelis.com.
