Ace of Cakes’ Duff Goldman on COVID-19 and Voting

Where do we find optimism during the current crisis? Celebrity baker Duff Goldman (Ace of Cakes, Charm City Cakes) dials in to talk to Billy Shore about his winding path to success, the effects of the coronavirus on his business and employees, and his advice for overcoming the current crisis. “The absolute 100% biggest impact is everybody needs to register to vote and vote in November,” he admonishes. “We have this terrible virus going around that’s really shut everything down, and we are rudderless. There’s nobody at the helm.” Goldman talks about temporarily adjusting his business operations to get through these tough times. “I don’t want anyone to go on unemployment or - god forbid - try to rely on the government right now,” he explains. “One of the things about people in the restaurant industry: we are resilient. We’re going to need some help, but I really believe that most of the people that are shut down right now, they’re going to be back. I have to believe that,” he says. Join us for a discussion about determination, innovation and the optimism it will take to overcome the problems created by COVID-19.
