- Says that the years spent in school, and the years afterwards, you focus should just be on trying different things and learning.
- He went to law school and got his law degree, but he wasn't really sure what being a lawyer would be like.
- When he joined a law firm after school, he realized that he'd made a mistake; he hated his work.
- Around that time, he started baking on the side as a hobby.
- Took a trip in 1999 and brought a cake with him; he didn't have a case for it, so he took it through the airport on a plate covered in plastic wrap.
- At each stage of his trip, people around him would react to the cake; he realized there was something special about baking, something he needed to explore.
- This time, he did his research; he made absolutely sure that he wanted to open a bakery before he took that step.
- In 2000, he officially left the law practice to open his bakery, CakeLove; today, he's written three cookbooks and hosts a show on Food Network.
