Where do the real locals go? As someone who's lived in LA for 10 years, I've become adept at finding the most unique places. I'll help you have a memorable experience that's more than just eating at a corporate chain restaurant and sitting in a Starbucks!

Focus on ways to share your expertise - public speaking, podcasts, online tutorials, workshops, coaching or selling/licensing your ideas to companies.
A fast way is IG Live or FB video. People want to interact with you and ask questions in an informal way.
It depends. Video is very different from audio. What is clear visually on-screen might not be understandable to people listening to audio. If you listen to podcasts, the host and guests make sure to verbally paint a picture for listeners (what something looks like, what something felt like, smelled like, etc). It’s more about storytelling vs. just reacting to things without context.
Had a great converstion with Melissa, very knowledgeable and encouraging.
