The Cure famously sang, “Sunday always comes too late.” It does seem that the wait for the week to end is endless. And, when Sunday finally comes, it ends too soon. So, if you want to maximize your Sunday, the only way to do it is by planning well in advance. There are people out there who think that working for five days a week and resting two days for the rest is simply not enough. However, lifestyle influencer Meeta Vengapally genuinely believes that “Making the most of what you get is what makes us human.”

Indian-born, Meeta is a native of California who heads Garnysh, a bespoke fitness and technology company that creates tailor-made diet plans that suits individuals’ fitness and nutrition needs. A serial entrepreneur and one of the most sought-after social media influencers with over 137,000 followers on Instagram, she actively connects with all her followers, sharing tips and tricks on looking fit, young, and fabulous.

“Apart from working out and eating right, it is extremely imperative to get enough rest as well. Sunday comes and goes in the blink of an eye. I wish it could be paused to get the most out of it,” she says.

Along with running her company, Meeta also manages her time between being a mother of two kids. She acknowledges, “One of the worst parts of running a business is never being able to shut my mind off it. Being off the Internet and work can be quite a challenge.”

However, people are noticing her hard work, and Meeta has been featured in numerous publications including Forbes, Chicago Tribune, MSN, and many more for her contributions in the fields of fitness and technology.

As for Sundays, they are for relaxation and rejuvenation for the coming week. Plus, everyone needs to give their body enough rest to stay safe from all sorts of illnesses. So, this Sunday, take a breather and give your mind, body, and soul the goodness they need.

If you have ever enjoyed a live concert or a male revue show, you undoubtedly love a good time with live entertainment, but what if you were to combine the two?  With catchy beats and hooks coupled with the looks and charisma of a charming male entertainer, Leon Budrow has done just that. Below is our interview with him.

BigTimeDaily Team – As a musician, how do you balance branding yourself as a male entertainer?

BUDROW – For me it is easy because it is just who I am, I am a male entertainer.  I work for a great male revue company called Hunk-O-Mania where I manage, host and perform at our Philadelphia location every weekend.  My music career has been heavily influenced by my experiences at the Hunk-O-Mania male revue.  My songs often reference the show and my experience as a host/MC has really influenced my stage presence as musician in a great way.

BTD – You have built quite a fan base for yourself, having toured the country with various Pop Stars such as O-Town and Aaron Carter.  How do you stay connected with all of your fans?

BUDROW – I have been very blessed to have met so many amazing people throughout the country.  I believe that fan interaction is incredibly important, especially to show thanks and love back to those that show love and support to you.  I take pictures with as many fans as I can and I try very hard to respond to everybody’s comments and tags on my social media posts.  I also do random free merch contest giveaways, and a segment on my Instagram Story every Thursday that I call “Q&A Thursday” where I can personally interact with them answering their questions.

BTD – Given your experience touring the country, are there any particular cities that you’d love to tour again?  Any new cities you’d like to visit that you have not yet experienced?

BUDROW – It’s hard to pick a particular city considering I’d love to tour them all again.  I had great experiences touring the Mid West and North East, performing in great cities such as Easton, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Louisville, Cleveland, Boston and many more.  I’d really love to visit them all again soon on my next tour.  As for new areas, I’d love to tour the West Coast and head down south a little more, maybe hit Tennessee, Maryland, Florida and Texas.

BTD – As a male dancer for Hunk-O-Mania, you mentioned you work at the Philadelphia location.  Are there any other Hunk-O-Mania locations you’d like to experience?

BUDROW – I have worked at a couple other Hunk-O-Mania shows filling in as a performer at our Atlantic City and Hamptons shows.  I believe we are currently in 19 different cities.  I’d like to work at any one of shows honestly, but I’d really like to experience our show in Nashville.  I love Nashville and it would be great to get to work at that show sometime.

BTD – You promote yourself as a Pop | Hip-Hop Artist, why is that?

BUDROW – I enjoy all types of music, from pop, rap, rock, country, etc.  If I listen to it all, why can’t I create it all?  My sound is unique in that I am versatile and like to record different genres based on how I am feeling.  Sometimes I sing, sometimes I rap, sometimes my instrumentals are very edm or pop sounding and others are heavier beats.  One day I’d even like to write and record a country song.  I enjoy variety and the creative process in general.

BTD – You’ve appeared in various film and tv projects such as the Television show “Younger” and an upcoming role in the Zach Snyder Netflix Film “Army of The Dead” , is acting something you’d to pursue more?

BUDROW – Yes, absolutely.  I love acting, I would really like to become deeper involved with it and build a name for myself in Hollywood one day.

BTD – You live a very fast paced life with work, music and dancing.  As a professional male dancer for Hunk-O-Mania, what do you do to stay in shape?

BUDROW – Fitness has been a big part of my life.  As a former wrestler, fitness competitor and current recreational hockey player, I have always been athlete and use sports as a great way to stay fit.  I play on three hockey teams which provides me great cardio.  In the gym I focus on intense weight training, incorporating techniques such as drop sets, super sets, and rest pause sets into my workouts with minimal rest.  I chase the burn, the hotter it burns the harder it dries!

BTD – More than just an entertainer, you also work a full time job during the day.  How do you stay focused on all of your projects?

BUDROW – I have a great job as a Regional Manager for the best GNC Franchise Operator in the company.  I love what I do and I am very fortunate to be surrounded by great people at all times.  To stay focused, I really just try to be active at all times and make the best of every moment.  One thing to the next, I don’t like to waste time.  Wasted time or unproductive time is worst than wasted money.

BTD – As a jack of all trades, what would you be doing if not for GNC, Hunk-O-Mania and your music career?

BUDROW – I don’t think I would be doing anything else.  I would continue chasing all of my goals until I achieve them.  Like I said above, this is just who I am.  To me everything connects.

BTD – You seem very positive and confident, how do you handle criticism and rejection?

BUDROW – I have faced an immense amount of criticism and rejection, just like everybody has.  The key is to take what you can from it in a productive, positive manner and not let it stop you.  I was told by many people I couldn’t be a dancer or a singer, but I stayed true to myself and worked to become what I wanted to be.  Don’t let others bring you down, just keep going.

BTD – Describe your personal style

BUDROW – If you’ve ever seen me before a show or in my down time, you’ll see me rocking nothing but grey sweatpants and some sort of long sleeve shirt.  Right before all shows I switch out of this to something flashier, like black skinny jeans and a black t shirt.  My style is definitely black on black everything, typically accessorized with some chains, a watch and hat.

BTD – What two accessories can’t you leave the house without?

BUDROW – My cell phone and my watch, or my crystals.  I always have to have a crystal of some sort with me in hand or in my pocket.

BTD – You often use the word “Dreamin” in your music branding, what is your message with that?

BUDROW – I really believe in doing what you love.  Even if you can’t do it as a career, at least pursue a hobby around whatever your passion is.  If you wanted to be a professional hockey player, sign up for a recreational league.  If you wanted to be a marine biologist, take up a scuba diving class.  I believe we should pursue whatever makes us happy in some form, no matter what people say or how busy we are.  Live your dreams and take action, that is the principle behind why I make use of the word Dreamin.

BTD – What is your life motto?

BUDROW – “A life filled with regret is just a life wasted away”

A great lyric from a humble man, inspiring others to always live life to their fullest.
