Marcello Pedalino, Executive Director of MMP Entertainment and author of the motivational book, Celebrate Life:  A New Book on How to Live it Up, Discover Fulfillment, and Experience the Joy You Deserve, joins Host Deirdre Breakenridge on Women Worldwide. A three-time national DJ Entertainer of the Year, Marcello and his company have helped clients have the time of their lives at their Weddings, Bar/Bat Mitzvahs, and countless other milestone occasions.

On the show, Marcello discusses the inspiration behind his book, Celebrate Life which is taking care of yourself, being surrounded by the right people and seeing the bigger picture and all of the incredible possibilities. Marcello outlines the difference between the Very Inspiring People (VIPs) in his life and how you need to avoid the Very Draining People (VDPs). He also shares candid advice on how to get “unstuck” in your life especially when you’re going through the “darkest hours.” There may be times when you’re lied to or betrayed, personally and/or professionally.  His five tips to move forward include (1) exercise, (2) talk it out with your VIPs, (3) get organized, (4) learn portion control, and (5) find a new project.
