Interview with Raul Villacis – The Edge
We had the pleasure of interviewing Raul Villacis from The Edge. Raul has started a global wave of male re-empowerment. As an entrepreneur and a man who believes in the power of family, Raul knows the difficulties men face as they try to find balance in being business leaders, family men and role models. He knows what it’s like to pursue balance while trying to find strategies to boost life to the next level. His determination and drive are fueled by an overwhelming desire to bring about tangible change. After years of research and personal experience, Raul has developed a unique and powerful approach to help individuals create balance, find purpose and infuse creativity into their lives. His highly successful professional development brand, “The Next Level Experience” focuses on helping entrepreneurs, CEOs and celebrities devise a system to regain the balance in their lives and create success in any economy. Raul is a highly successful entrepreneur with over fourteen years of business experience. As the CEO of minority-owned and operated, ARG Advisors, a real estate firm based in Connecticut and New York, he led the company to consistently market and sell over $100 million per year in distressed real estate. His acumen working with top financial institutions caused the Wall Street Journal to dub ARG as “One of the Nation’s Top Real Estate Firms”. Raul can relate to business owners and companies because of his own success keeping ARG strong and profitable through the financial meltdown. Raul has also co-authored books with Steve Forbes and Brian Tracy. He believes The EDGE stems from having the capacity to execute while others sit on the sidelines and wait.

Interview with Todd Denkin from DigiPath
We recently had the opportunity to talk to Todd Denkin the CEO and Founder of DigiPath. Since joining Digipath, Inc., in 2014 Todd Denkin has transformed the company from a pure digital pathology solution provider into a leader in the medical and recreational cannabis testing market. Digipath Labs’ Las Vegas cannabis testing facility is the number-one testing lab in Nevada, seeing a steady increase in clients and revenues since opening in May of 2015. While maintaining the highest standard for cannabis testing, Todd also focuses on expanding the business through licensing agreements and partnerships that will bring the reliability, experience, and customer service Digipath Labs is known for to cannabis markets across the country. While doing all of that, Todd also co-founded TNMNews Corp. where he serves as it’s president and on-air host.
Denkin’s career has been defined by foresight––the ability to spot and take advantage of emerging market trends and navigate new companies into lucrative markets. In 2009, Todd identified a trend in grow-your-own hydroponic systems and co-founded the self-contained hydroponic system leader Phototron Holdings, helping take the company public and serving as its president. At the time it was one of the very first publicly traded cannabis companies.
He also founded 10 Mile Farms, a hydroponic vegetable growing company dedicated to sprouting locally grown vertical indoor organic produce farms in communities across the country.
Starting in the television and film production business since attending the University of Florida, Denkin became a 25-year show business veteran making TV shows, commercials, infomercials music videos and films. It was another natural fit for Denkin to shift to the Internet in 2000 with a streaming video dot com startup in Las Vegas, NV. He helped take that company public in 2003 and was instrumental in building it to a $300 million market cap.
