We had the good fortune of connecting with Laurel Mintz and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Laurel, can you tell us about a book that has had a meaningful impact on you?
The law of attraction by Esther and Jerry Hicks has had a major impact on me. Its basic premise is that the things we put energy into are the things that we manifest, good, bad or ugly. It’s really helped me to recognize a thought that doesn’t serve me and pivot to something more useful and positive. It’s so important to be an optimist when you’re an entrepreneur.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I’m not a really touristy person except when it comes to food. My entire experience would revolve around where and when we’re eating. There’s an amazing tour called Club Tengo Hambre that is a taco tour of all of Los Angeles. I’d probably start there but other stops on my tour would be: 1. The Apple Pan, 2. Pizzeria Mozza, 3. Sugarfish, 4. Baco Mercat, 5. Grand Central Market, 6. Sushi Note, 7. Brent’s Deli, 8. Here’s Looking at You, 9. Night + Market, 10. Nomad Hotel (for drinks) 11. Pilot, 12. Avra, 13. Bavel, 14. Bon Temps, 15. Baroo Canteen…..mmmm I’m getting hungry just looking at this list!

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to dedicate this shoutout to all the women run small businesses out there. We are all in this together and we will get through it by supporting each other. This one’s for you!
