Whisk it with flAVA, LLC. is a family business which technically started November 2019, in Vancouver, British Columbia in Canada, and was moved to Scottsdale, Arizona in December 2019 when we moved to be closer to family. We aren't your average family by any means. We have moved to more cities than most (13 due to Dad's career) and love being involved with communities, and spending time with friends and family. But, at the end of the day, cool with chilling in front of television on a couch with popcorn in hand and cake for dessert.
My mom and I do the planning, prepping, creating and baking together. We are both learning how to bake and decorate together. My mom hates to bake and gets frustrated so I do all the baking. She likes to help decorate because it relaxes her but we have lots of drama in the kitchen. We clean up and do the dishes together, since we have a lot of dirty dishes. We watch a lot of How-To videos too to learn new techniques. When we bake a cake, we usually try 1-4 techniques we have never done before, which can be challenging and fail at times, but we always seem to make it work, even if tears fall, tantrums happen and arms get crossed. It's funny and very dramatic!
Mom also helps me with my scripts and directs "Let's Talk Flava with AVA." She does all our marketing, public relations, sales and operations. In addition to her event planning company, Celebrations By Samara, LLC., mom is our Chief Operating Officer, Producer, Director of Marketing and of course, Assistant to me.
In addition to his full-time job, my dad is our videographer, video editor, graphic designer, accountant and Chief Financial Officer. He works really hard to learn how to do video and graphic skills because he had never done it before we started my talk show. Dad and I build Legos together, watching cooking shows, make pasta, and he helps me with math and science.
My brother is our Professional Taste Tester. He takes his job very seriously. He also helps by vacuuming and mopping the kitchen after we make a huge mess. It's his payment for getting to eat our treats and scraps. He's cool with it. We also build Legos and play video games together when he will let me.
Together, we are Whisk it with flAVA!
