The Business Club holds a monthly breakfast meeting on third Thursdays starting. hosting speakers that discuss their professional and personal success.
Fried will talk about experiential retail. After a corporate advertising career, he wanted to live and work in Laguna Beach so he started his own boutique agency, Spasmodic.

Over the course of nearly 20 years, his eco-friendly business has grown to now offer stand-up paddling, surfing, hiking, electric bike tours, and a number of corporate team-building activities. Fried is a frequent guest columnist for the Independent and hosts the radio show “Laguna Talks” on KXFM.
