Refreshing conversations with inspiring people.

Welcome to the Begin the Begin Podcast. I'm Jeff Hilimire, a husband, father, entrepreneur, and author. I created this podcast to talk to people that inspire me, either because they've accomplished great things or done a lot of good in the world - or more likely, a combination of both. My goal is to learn people's origin stories, really dig into what makes them tick, and understand their secrets to success.

    How accurate is The Bear? (with Fred Castellucci)

    I'm obsessed with the TV show The Bear. Like, obsessed. So, I decided to have Fred Castellucci (Atlanta restaurateur legend) on the podcast to help me understand just how accurate their depiction of running a restaurant is. (Spoiler: pretty darn accurate.)
