Over the past several months, I had the privilege of becoming exposed to the #ChefJoaquinPaolo brand and of witnessing Chino’s amazing ability to create meaningful relationships with his clients by reaching out personally. As he approached me with a pitch, I was struck by his charisma and genuine interest in giving back to those who have helped him in the journey of establishing his name. Chino is a passionate entrepreneur whose talent is well apparent through the content published on his personal website – http://www.chefjoaquinpaolo.com/ – as well as through his strong networking abilities. His professionalism is evident from his style of blog writing, his e-mail content, and his continuous investment in the relationships he creates with the people involved in his creative business endeavour. Chino is a storyteller – the anecdotes under the CJP Stories tag on his website struck me as a touching addition to the rest of his work. He has a profound ability to connect and to evoke emotion through his stories, both written and those told through images. Chino is an entrepreneur with a vision and the dedication required to execute and develop a very strong brand. He is a businessman and a friend. I am fortunate enough to have heard about Chino’s personal and professional goals and am looking forward to seeing where this exciting journey takes him.
