Pervaiz Shallwani, Host of Feed Me TV

From covering the police beat in New York City beat to reporting on the best wines across Long Island’s vineyards, our guest today is a journalist who, like so many children of immigrants who don’t go onto become doctors and lawyers, had a hard time convincing his parents that he was on the right track. (I can relate.)

Pervaiz Shallwani is a friend and he is our guest today. He is a food writer and dining critic at Newsday, a daily newspaper and media company that mainly services communities on Long Island, New York. Also big news: He has a new online show called Feed Me TV, which serves up a behind the scenes look at the Long Island food scene.

Pervaiz has mastered the art of doing what you want and doing it well, even if it means changing course more than once in your career. He’s brave. He’s bold. We talk pivots, hard-to-please parents, getting paid to eat on camera and of course, the vivid money experiences that have shaped his relationship with money today and even allowed him to buy a home in New York.
