Tuesday 10 – Doug Brown


This week’s Tuesday 10 respondent has been a friend for almost 20 years, one of the first people I met when I moved to South Florida.

We have gotten into mischief together, we have laughed, cried, fought and laughed some more.

Doug Brown is one of those people I feel fortunate to know.  He works hard, plays hard and lives life well.  As co-owner of Ovations Catering he brings a class and sophistication to everything he does.

Thanks Douglas for participating and thanks for your friendship!

To starve myself during the day so that I can eat ice cream and cookies at night

5)     What is the best professional advice you ever received?

It’s a tie, Michael Roman told me that if you just straight forward ask for business often people say yes quicker.
