Kavita takes us to Great Sage restaurant in Clarksville, Maryland just minutes from where she grew up in Maryland. The perfectly seasoned Spinach curry is a reminder of who she is and where she came from.

Jim McIngvale, Philanthropist, Gallery Furniture

When Jim started his mattress business in Houston, Texas he had just $5,000 and a pickup truck. Now, he has amassed a furniture empire through his "wacky ads" and gregarious personality.

We go with Jim to his favorite Mexican restaurant, Lopez Family restaurant, to eat fajitas and hear the story of how any local businessman can make a tremendous social impact.
