Azi Hendi and her husband, Dr. Ali Hendi, now in their fourth year of operations, are the founders of Luminora, a stylish clothing line designed to protect women from the sun’s harmful rays.
When they were featured on Monday Morning Radio in August 2018, they were still feeling their way as entrepreneurs, aware of the great potential but also struggling with the realities of being small business owners.
Monday Morning Radio host Dean Rotbart forecast they would be a success, and by all outward appearances, he was correct.
Luminora’s offerings now include resort wear, fashionable activewear, and even matching facemasks.
It’s been bone-chilling cold over the past couple of weeks in most of the country. So Dean thought a reminder that bathing-suit weather and summer are only 119 days away would be in order. Listen in as Azi and Ali shine some light on both their accomplishments and their frustrations as first-time entrepreneurs.

Which of the following sentences do you think conveys costly, erroneous “business think”?
The correct answer is “E” – all of the above.
As business consultant Jack Quarles first explained to host and award-winning journalist Dean Rotbart in March 2017, American companies pay a massive penalty for buying into outdated thinking. Jack’s book, “Expensive Sentences,” is an international bestseller and will make you think twice about bogus business aphorisms.

Sarah Cooper has become a TikTok superstar. Her hilarious video lip-syncs to the voice of former President Donald Trump made her a national celebrity, even serving as a substitute host for Jimmy Kimmel on his late-night ABC talk show.
Host Dean Rotbart knew Sarah was special when he interviewed her four years ago about her half-serious, half-humorous book, “100 Tricks to Appear Smart in Meetings.” Sarah was inspired to write the book after sitting through boring meetings at her previous employers, Yahoo! and Google.
This week on a Best of Monday Morning Radio episode, Dean reprises his 2017 conversation with Sarah, and “objectively speaking” – as you’ll hear [Trick #19], he’s still the best podcast host on the planet.
