Dr. Robi Ludwig on The Key to Mid-Life Happiness

Dr. Robi Ludwig, Psychotherapist and author, sat down with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss how people in mid-life need to find a purpose to be fulfilled.

The “Your Best Age is Now” author tells Adubato that finding a life after retirement is healthy, as opposed settling in and doing nothing.

“People at midlife and beyond really need to find their purpose,” Ludwig says. She goes on to say that such people need to do something that they feel is meaningful in order to feel fulfilled, happy, and healthy.

She says that if someone wants to retire and travel the world, that is great. “But, the economic truth is that most of us are not going to be able to do that.”

Sakinah Hoyte on New Jersey’s homeless

Sakinah Hoyte, Director of Project Connect at Bridges Outreach, sat down with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the surprising new face of New Jersey’s homeless.

Hoyte says that the homeless demographic is changing drastically. “Years ago, the focus was on single men. Now, we’re seeing women with children, adolescent youth,” she says. “The people that are falling into homelessness are people like you and I.”

Can homelessness be one check away? “There are individuals that lose their jobs, and they don’t have enough savings to get them to their next paycheck,” Hoyte explains.” “That’s what catapults them into homelessness.”

Mike “Bad Boy” Marino On His Start In The Business

New Jersey comedian Mike “Bad Boy” Marino sat down with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss his start in the business and how his New Jersey accent got him some of his first roles.

“I didn’t ever really set out to be a comedian,” the Jersey City native said. “All my life, I wanted to be an actor. I grew up doing plays in school.” He recalls imitating television commercials.

When he was around sixteen or seventeen, he started going to New York and doing television commercials. “I never really wanted to be funny. I thought I was going to be the next Robert De Niro.”

Then, when he was around twenty-five, he moved to California where he was told that his Jersey accent was funny. So, he started doing stand-up at clubs which led to acting jobs. “There’s no greater high than a live performance,” the comedian says.
