We had the good fortune of connecting with Masha Berenboym and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Masha, how do you think about risk?
I’m a strong believer in the saying “there’s no reward in life without risk” and I have dedicated my life to enjoying constant change and doing what I believe is right, not what society makes people right for. Risk is my best friend because I know giving is my purpose and when you have good intentions mixed with a belief to want and to do, you know you’ll succeed.

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?
Let’s hope for a sunny week & if so, I would leave my area and grab breakfast at Bae’s Bae’s in Burbank then drive to Malibu and Hike at Escondido Canyon Park and then reserve 2 chairs at Paradise Cove to lay out for the day. Then before heading home we would stop at Broad Street Oyster Company for dinner and head home.
Next day I would do Venice and start with early lunch at Cha Cha Chicken, rent bikes down the boardwalk, and then go to Hotel Erwin for drinks. Grab dinner at Elephante in Santa Monica and drinks at the Bungalow.
Next day I would do a Beverly Hills/West Hollywood Day. Get facials at Joanna Vargas at Sunset Tower, get brunch at Ep&Lp, shop on Melrose, late lunch at Gracias Madre, go to Rodeo, and then Gay clubs for the night like the Abbey or Rocco’s.
Next day I would grab breakfast at the farmers market at the Groove, do LACMA if they had an exhibit and go to Hollywood for some lunch at mama shelter, then go to jumbos clown room into Birds for dinner.
Next day I would hike to the observatory, grab breakfast at Alcove in Los Feliz, walk the crystal shops, antique, and thrift shops towards Silverlake, grab late lunch at Genwa Korean BBQ and set up a concert at the Hollywood Bowl for night.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Chonique Sneed for seeing my light & getting me into her creating opportunities program from which I created my business.
My mom who is the CFO of my company and without whom I wouldn’t have a business.
Desiree Ponomarenko, my ex-business partner who showed me what operations is all about & who to this day is my best friend and spiritual soul sister guru.
