Michelle Bernstein is an award-winning celebrity chef, restaurateur, author, and television personality, having been on numerous shows on Food Network and currently still hosts her own show on PBS.

Chef Bernstein is incredibly impressive - when she opened her first restaurant, Azul, it was dubbed "Best New Restaurant" in 2006 by Food & Wine Magazine and then two years later she was awarded the "Best Chef Southeast" from the James Beard Foundation.

We talk through Michelle's journey thus far - the ups and the downs and the lessons she's learned along the way - which of course is the advice she has for you today, including these three things:

  • What it was like to open her first restaurant and what chefs/want to be restaurateurs need to do before "taking the leap".
  • The most powerful way to market your business (and yourself) this day and age.
  • How Michelle, being such an incredibly busy and motivated person is able to balance work and life.

You can connect with Chef Michelle Bernstein on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram or stop by her website!
