We had the good fortune of connecting with Sydney Vitale and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sydney, what role has risk played in your life or career?
What should our readers know about your business?
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?
There are definitely some great local spots for food and fun in Tucson. The Desert Museum is always a great place. It is kid friendly and a great opportunity to learn about the unique and diverse plant and wildlife we have here. Tucson has lots of great hiking trails too, and something for hikers of all skill levels. Sabino Canyon & Catalina State Park are always great options, especially when there is water running. If someone is looking for some unique shopping, Fourth Avenue is another fun location. I always love grabbing a sandwich and soup combo from Bison Witches and perusing the vintage clothing shops for a one of a kind fashion. Tucson has great local fare. Seis Kitchen at Mercado San Augustin is a charming little spot to enjoy a breakfast burrito in the open air courtyard. I like to support the local shops, grab an espresso from Presta Coffee Roasters and bring home some yummy treats from La Estrella Bakery. For a night out, enjoy a casual evening in downtown Tucson with dinner at The Hub and some live jazz music in the Club Congress Plaza. With a little planning, one of my very favorite places for food and fun is The Gaslight Theater. Great food and great entertainment!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Besides my mom being my risk taking mentor, I could never have achieved so much without the support of Joe, my husband of twenty years. Even when he may have been a little fearful of my endeavors, he swallowed his fear and supported me. My kids have always cheered me on and kept me grounded and focused on what is most important in my life. My siblings have supported me, encouraged me, and come to my aid with whatever was needed. I also have a wonderful and extensive group of friends who have supported me through my journey in many different ways, everything from being clients on my table, providing me with words of encouragement at breaking point moments, to celebrating successes with me. Nothing I have ever done can be attributed to my sole effort but is a collection of those around me.
