Jon Dimetros

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Jon Dimetros, one of Chicago’s first-rate brokers, clever marketer & handsome renaissance man.

By: Joshua Conner

Jon Dimetros is: the co-owner at Dunning Real Estate, Broker at Main Street Real Estate Group, LLC & marketing for Mammoth Distilling, LLC from Chicago, Illinois. Dimetros inspires me professionally & personally. Professionally, Dimetros was named top producer for Main Street Real Estate Group in 2017 & 2018. Personally, I really admire Dimetros style, chic excursions & his appreciation for James Bond. I also enjoy the eclecticism of his Instagram, that is a brilliant highlight reel of his: professional accomplishments, style, Ted hijinks, friendship hangouts & James Bond throwbacks.

What is a day in the life of Dimetros like?

“A day in my life could vary greatly, depending on what I have going on. Most of the time, I’ll get up, get out of bed, check some emails and get on my phone to return calls. Then I’ll go to the office, I’m in Main Street and Lawrence Dunning and I have a group called Dunning Real Estate Group, so we’re often on the phone with each other talking about whatever residential or investment properties we have. Whatever conversation there is with these properties, that we currently have active to talk about.

Then I’ll try to get a workout in, usually sometime in the afternoon. I really like hanging out with friends. I’m one of those guys who likes to go out on weekdays, either to dinner or just go hang with friends whenever I can. If I don’t have an event on a certain night, I’ll probably go grab a bite with a buddy or my girlfriend and just hang out. I would say, that I would think one of my favorite things to do in life, is to go and have a meal with somebody. It could be one person or it could be 20 people, I just think that it’s really great to sit down & break bread with somebody & enjoy a really nice conversation,” said Dimetros.

What was Dimetros most memorable year?

“My most memorable year was probably when I turned 30. I’m 36 now, I remember I was dreading turning 30. You know, you’re conditioned in your 20’s once you get 30, it’s like, my life is over I’m old. I was really scared, I thought it was going to be this transition. I was suddenly going to become some guy, that was over the hill.

I wouldn’t be able to go out any more and it was almost this cut off. You couldn’t do certain things once you hit 30. It ended up being a great year. There is a famous quote, that I really like, “All that I know I learned after I was thirty,” said George Clemenceau, he’s a french politician. I remember reading it right before 30. It really kind of helped me realize that aging can be a good thing.

30 was a good year for me, it was a transition for me. When I realized that I was coming out of  my 20s, I started shedding some of my juvenile tendencies & I was growing into what I considered to be transitioning into a man. In your 20’s your still in kind of an transition period. I think once you hit 30, you feel all grown up. You feel more secure, and you look back and you just gain confidence.

I think continuing to grow more confidence, and knowing who you are as a person, and who you identify with and what you identify with is a very liberating thing,” said Dimetros.

What does Dimetros prefer boxers, briefs or boxer briefs and what is his favorite brand?

“Let’s go for briefs, my favorite brand is Calvin Klein and then for boxer briefs my favorite brand is a Swedish brand called Bjorn Bjorg, there made by a famous tennis player. I found them in Sweden a few years ago. They’re super cool, really colorful & a lot of fun. The boxer briefs are super thin and comfortable.

The nice thing about them, is that there tight, but not uncomfortable & don’t ride up on your legs. So it almost feels like your not wearing anything, but you’re wearing boxer briefs,” said Dimetros.

What would be the title of Dimetros life story & who would play him in a movie?

“I would love for the title of my life story to be American Bond. Let’s see who would, I want to play me, I would say, who’s the dude from Fifty Shades of GreyJamie Dornan. He’s a great actor, and I would like him to play me,” said Dimetros.

Who is Dimetros favorite James Bond actor?

“Favorite James Bond, is without a doubt Daniel Craig. He is true to what Ian Fleming, the author of the James Bond novels, had in mind when he wrote James Bond. James Bond was kind of a rough & tough guy and still had some sex appeal, and you know appealed to men & women equally. I think that a lot of the Bonds, you know Sean Connery, was kind of a really good-looking guy, women loved him, he was suave, but he didn’t have that kind of killer instinct, that I think Craig portrayed.

The rest of the Bond’s like between: Roger Moore, Sean Connery, and Timothy Dalton, there was a lot of humor mixed with those Bonds, and I don’t think the real James Bond was supposed to be a nice guy. James Bond was supposed to be an alcoholic womanizer that did bad things to bad people,” said Dimetros.

Dimetros favorite Bond movie is also Casino Royale starring Daniel Craig.

Dimetros favorite Bond Woman is Ursula Andress.

“She was Honey Ryder in Dr. No, and she starred as Vesper Lynd in the old Casino Royale. She was a Swiss sex symbol. She had a famous coming out of the water, in a swimsuit in Dr. No and I liked her,” said Dimetros.

If Dimetros could have a drink with any three people died or alive, who would they be and what drink would he serve them?

“If I could have a drink with any three people died or alive, that’s a very good question. I would have to say: Daniel Craig, just because, let’s put Winston Churchill and Gandhi. I think it’s a.pretty weird mix, but I would put those guys on there. I would probably serve them an old fashioned made with Mammoth Bourbon,” said Dimetros.

If Dimetros mantra were a hashtag it would be a famous naval motto, #dontgiveuptheship.

“I believe at least for me, it means to never give up, don’t ever stop and even when things look bleak, or when things look like their not going to turn out favorable for you, you always got fight left in you. That little bit of fight can make the difference between succeeding or failing,” said Dimetros.

Marty Riva

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Marty Riva, Chicago’s charming realtor & hunky model.

By: Joshua Conner

Marty Riva, Chicago Real Estate Broker with @Properties & model for DAS Model Management Miami, inspires me both personally & professionally. I really found him relatable because we were both born in Illinois & our mothers played a pivotal role in our lives. I am so inspired by how Riva, has diversified his real estate & modeling brands both tangibly & through social media. I really admire his composure, work ethic & style.

What is a day in the life of Riva like?

“I’ll usually wake up, and I’ll check my emails. If I have any showings to do for real estate,  I’ll do some real estate showings. Other than that, I’ll typically work out, late morning or early afternoon. I’ll usually work out 2 to 3 hours, depending on if I play basketball or not. I really love playing basketball, so I try to play it as much as I can for the cardio. Then at night, I’m either: doing a second job, where I work at D.S. Tequila Company, doing serving, or I will be spending some time with my girlfriend, watching a movie, or having some dinner,” said Riva.

What would be the title of Riva’s life story & who would play him in a movie?

“Oh, so I get told that I look like Jon Hamm a lot, so I imagine Jon Hamm would play me in a movie. The title would be The Calm Life of Marty Riva,” said Riva.

If Riva’s mantra were hashtag, what would it be?

“#Staycalm, just because that really embodies the person I am.  I don’t really get nervous or scared, at least I don’t show it. Everyone just kind of looks at me, like I am cool, calm & collected twenty-four seven, even though on the inside, I may not be,” says Riva.

What is Riva’s underwear preference and what is his favorite brand?

“So, this is interesting because I recently made a change. I was only wearing boxers for as long as I can remember. After I got into modeling I learned that boxer briefs were a lot easier to change in & out of for photo shoots. So, I made a switch to boxer briefs & my favorite brand is definitely Calvin Klein,” said Riva.

Riva has also modeled Richard Dayhoff underwear.  

“Modeling Richard Dayhoff underwear, was really nice. They were really comfortable, honestly no complaints about it. Having that name and being able to be on his Instagram, I really felt honored to be presented in that way,” said Riva.

Riva says he would like to be a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings if he were drafted into any National Football League team.

How would Riva describe his real estate business?

“I would say that I am dedicated to the people I am working for. I would do anything to get them the place they want and at the price they want. I am pretty much there go to person, whenever they have a question about anything real estate related. If I don’t have an answer, I’ll do my best to find that answer for them or direct them to the person, that can give them that answer. I always try to be honest with the people I with, I believe that’s the best policy. I treat them the way I want to be treated, kind of like the golden rule. That kind of goes along with how I live my life,” said Riva.

Trevor Michael Opalewski

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Trevor Michael Opalewski, Michigan’s astute personal trainer & handsome model.

By: Joshua Conner

One of my main motivations for featuring Trevor Michael Opalewski, is because: we both were successfully raised in single mother households, both are Aries and we are both fans of fitness legend Greg Plitt. His passion, work ethics, motivational social media presence, and dedication to health and wellness inspires me personally & professionally. Opalewski is a: personal trainer/sports performance/injury prevention at Built by Trev, certified personal trainer/strength coach at Jax Fitness, ambassador at Proteinfactory.com and model for DAS Model Management Miami. With every post Opalewski produces, he inspires the masses with his mantras & incredible physique.

What is a day in the life of Opalewski like?

“A day in the life, first & foremost, you know being a personal trainer, I am always looking to help my clients and my people. I usually start personal training from about 5 am in the morning to about 10 am. I usually have some down time after that, probably about from 10 am to 2 pm. I either get done with some chores, do some research, run errands, and slowly implemented another step into my online training business, that I am working on,” said Opalewski.

“Then, I’ll get a workout in myself, if I am feeling pretty adequate. After 2 pm, usually I go to personal training at about 3 to about 7 or 8. Then after that time, if I haven’t worked out, then I would get it done. Otherwise, I’ll probably prep dinner. Then I’ll have something to eat, do some reading, some research and maybe watch football if it’s on. Other than that, I really don’t try to watch television, or movies too much, because it just sucks the life out of you. Then, I’ll go on social media for a little bit, and usually end up falling asleep anywhere from 11 pm or 1 am,” said Opalewski.

What would be the title of Opalewski life story and who would play him in a movie?

“The title of my life story would be: the fight from within. Who would play me, oh, I mean of course I would love to have Morgan Freeman do the voiceover, haha. He’s pretty notorious for that, but who would play me, jeez, that’s a tough one. I am going to have to go with one of my favorites and that Jean-Claude Van Damme,” said Opalewski.

What is Opalewski underwear preference?

“You know, growing up, I was always a boxer kid, just because of the freedom haha. Now, getting into working out and everything, boxers probably wasn’t the best route to go. But, once I noticed boxer briefs, was kind of like a weird thing growing up, hey things kind of stay close-knit in here, you know while you’re working out. So these are a bit nicer, when you just lounge around with nothing to do,” said Opalewski.

“If it wasn’t for the modeling industry, I would have to say boxers,  but I don’t have a favorite brand. Since, opening up into the modeling industry, I would have to go with the briefs. Just outside of that bro, honestly on a regular basis, I like some sort of spandex, but day-to-day, I have to say neither,” said Opalewski.

Opalewski has also modeling Richard Dayhoff underwear.

“Oh, Richard Dayhoff, his product was honestly really nice. If I were to wear briefs or something, that would be it. Like I said, the whole modeling thing, kind of opened me, back up to that realm thankfully. It was nice, comfortable material, it was very form-fitting, which is kinda hard for me, since I have a small waist and bigger lower half, but they fit very well. I definitely recommend them,” said Opalewski.

Opalewski has a great body of work, would he ever consider posing for Bodybuilding.com Bodies of Work similar to Greg Plitt?

“Bodybuilding.com Bodies of work or bodies of art, kind of like the whole ESPN series. Honestly, that’s like one of my goals that I have for myself. I would definitely like to do one of those editorials or shoots with myself, I think it would be really cool. Obviously, out of all the athletes, the one that inspired me the most was Greg Plitt. Just seeing the guy, it’s just phenomenal, what he is able to obtain and do with himself,” said Opalewski.

If Opalewski mantra were a hashtag what would it be?

“I am going to have go with my life’s work #builtbytrev. I think it’s all about the dream, I have made ever since my buddy,  brought me into the fitness world when I was about 15 or 16. Learning from him, he was an avid Arnold Schwarzenegger fan, as I was too, but he was like a fanatic. I mean the guy, literally built a basement when he was 16 years old, his dad was a carpenter, so he was a great craftsman. He built a basement shrine, with: every single movie poster, magazine he was on the cover of, vhs tape, and a couple of action figures, he literally had it all,” said Opalewski.

“So coming from him, and all the bodybuilding magazines, I was involved and kind of engulfing myself in the industry. You know I always wanted to be involved in fitness in some way. You know I always, just tried to find the best ways possible of obtaining the physique I wanted. You know the athletic & performance driven physique that I wanted,” said Opalewski.

“You know it’s the constant giving back to the chalkboard, taking notes on everything, I was doing, trying & relearning. Even when I thought I had it right, my body would tell me, hey you don’t have it all figured out bud, you gotta go back to the drawing board. I think especially over the last 5 or 6 years, I have really I don’t want to say mastered my craft, it’s been always kind of learning and progressing, but I think I definitely got a better handle on it now, then back then,” said Opalewski.

Michael Carey

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Michael Carey, New York’ s introspective sensei & hunky actor.

By: Joshua Conner

Michael Carey is a New York based SAG-AFTRA actor, stuntman & martial artist. Whether it’s a thoughtful quote on his social media, his martial arts discipline or acting endeavors, Carey inspires me to always follow your dreams.

What is a day in the life of Carey like?

“I wake up in the morning & I meditate for about an hour, usually while listening to affirmations. Then I go to the gym: weights & cardio, then back home. I prep my meals for the day, I eat and then I’ll handle whatever errands, I’ll have for the day, if I’m not on set. Then, I go to martial arts class or stunt training. After that, I come back home, and I hit the gym again. Then, I am winding down for the night, I’m either reading a book or listening to an audiobook. Then, I meditate about 30 minutes before I go to bed,” said Carey.

What is Carey’s favorite quote?

“What you think about, you bring about,” by Bob Proctor,” he says.

What is the greatest lessons martial arts and karate have taught Carey?

“The greatest lessons martial arts and karate have taught me are: discipline, persistence & consistency. With those three qualities, you can really overcome anything. You’ll teach your mind to find a solution, for any problem. You’ve got to be willing to adapt to any situation,” said Carey.  

Carey’s most memorable year would be 2015, because he was able to fulfill two of his parent’s promises.

“I would say my most memorable year, was 2015. That’s when I had been in stunts for about a year and a half and I was able to take my mother to a movie, in which I co-starred opposite of Eric Roberts. I was able to walk the red carpet with my mom, keeping a childhood promise, I made to her & my father. So I would say 2015. I was able to keep a promise that I made to my parents when I was sick years old,” said Carey.

“I told my father, I would be like Bruce Lee in the movies & I told my mother that my very first movie that I co-starred in or starred in, whether there was a red carpet or not, she would be my date. So on that night, I was able to fulfill both of those promises, unfortunately my father died when I was 17. I was still able to keep my word to him, because the movie, not only did I have to perform my own stunts, I had a fight a guy who was a martial arts grandmaster in his style. I didn’t get to go at him like, Bruce Lee would have, but I did get to choreograph my fight scene & I got to act opposite of Eric Roberts who my mom kind of had a little crush on. It was cool to be able to keep my promise to her,” said Carey.

What would be the title of Carey’s life story?

“Be Your Own Hero: Live Your Dream,” said Carey.

Zachary Koran

I recently had an opportunity to speak with entrepreneur, coach & family man Zachary Koran.

By: Joshua Conner

Zachary Koran, is the lead broker & founder of Zach Koran Real Estate/The Zach Koran Group, entrepreneur, coach, father and Illinois Realtor at Compass based in Chicago. I am really inspired by how Koran utilizes various mediums including social media to give clients the best service.

What is a day in the life of Koran like?

“Well, I typically get up, have some coffee and take my vitamins, then I pray, mediate & do a couple of spiritual readings. Then I take a shower, get dressed and walk the dog. I have my son part-time, so sometimes, I’ll take him to school, like I did this morning. Then sometimes, I head to the office, where I make phone calls, do the prospecting part of my real estate business. In the afternoon,  I show properties, and 3 or 4 days a week, I hit the gym in the morning, before I start the day as well. At night-time, I either hang out with friends, or I show property listings or I have my son,” said Koran.

What would be the title of Koran’s life story and who would play him in a movie?

“Title of my life story, good question, it would be humility drives success. Who would play me in a movie, how about, I’m going through my mental Rolodex of actors, I don’t know Hugh Jackman,” said Koran.

If Koran could leave his son one quality it would be loyalty and honesty.

“Leave my son one quality, what would it be & why, that’s a good one, I was actually thinking about this the other day. You know probably, that’s tough, I would say loyalty and honesty. I know that’s two, but loyalty and honesty go together for me,” said Koran.

What was it like for Koran modeling for the Men of Chicago Real Estate calendar?

“It was great, I know a lot of those guys, that were on the calendar, because we’re all in the real estate business. I know probably half of them. We had a lot of fun doing it, I’m not really a model by trade. Doing that was fun for me, it’s always fun getting your picture taken. So, I got to meet some new people, which was great, and get a chance to be part of a fundraiser. The money raised from the calendar sales, went to a non-profit,” said Koran.

How did Koran get his first tattoo?

My first tattoo, I got it at Lake Geneva, when I was 18 years old. I got my first one on my shoulder, it was my initials in Old English writings. It is now covered up, by other art, that I wanted to bring to life, you know, kind of cover it up, but that was my first one 23 years ago,” said Koran.

What are Koran’s favorite brand of boxer briefs?

“ I probably go with Calvin Klein,” he says.

What is one sentence, would Koran like people to use when describing his business Zach Koran Real Estate?

“That’s a great question, I would like people to say, he goes extremely beyond the limits to provide good service,” said Koran.

Billy Smith

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Billy Smith, Kentucky’s humble & handsome Renaissance man.

By: Joshua Conner

I really became a fan of Billy Smith: actor, model & former professional fighter, from Brooks, Kentucky, from how his Instagram not only illustrates how he can rock a three-piece suit, but how it has a golden age of Hollywood aesthetic. Smith’s personal & professional reinvention, is as charming as his accent.

What is a day in the life of Smith like?

“A day in the life of me, well at different times in my life, it has been a lot different. I use to be a professional fighter, so that was a different lifestyle. Then I was mainly a model, now I’m an actor, so my life has changed a lot over the years. It’s hard to say what a day in the life of me would be like, I guess it would depend on the decade, I guess. The decade, I’m in now, a day in the life of me is answering emails, scheduling work and it’s always something new. I mean honestly, a day in the life of me is always something new. It’s never a repeat process, I guess you would say,” said Smith.

How did Smith get his first tattoo?

“Oh, my first tattoo, actually it was a tribal dragon. I have some Cherokee Indian in me & I’ve always been a huge fan of Mixed Martial Arts. I wanted a tattoo, to kind of combine them both,” said Smith.

Smith didn’t get his first tattoo, until he was 21. Smith would always associate dragons with Mixed Martial Arts. 

What is the greatest lesson that fighting has taught Smith?

“What professionally fighting has taught me, if I could sum up to one thing is that: a person is capable of a lot more than they understand, until they actually try to achieve it. Boxing and Mixed Martial arts taught me that your physical body and your mind, work together. If one of them isn’t in the game, you don’t compete as well. Your body needs to be trained, it’s a machine, it needs to be well oiled, you know it needs to be ready. Your mind does too, because if your mind isn’t ready, your body isn’t here. So one thing, I learned is that your mind is powerful itself. Just believing in yourself,  believing in the things you want to achieve, can make anything happen for you physically also. If you believe you can’t do it, it can keep you from physically competing, you know winning a fight. You can beat yourself so to speak. I just learned that you need to have both working together, your mind & your body,” said Smith.

If Smith could leave his child one quality it would be respect & empathy.

“Well, I try to instill in them respect. Hopefully they just be really understanding of people. I would want them to be empathetic for people, hopefully they are not judgmental,” said Smith.

What is Smith’s underwear preference & favorite brand?

“I’m a boxer briefs guy, and a brand I use most commonly and I like personally is called Lucky brand,” said Smith.

What is Smith’s mantra?

“You know, honestly I would say stay learning. Don’t ever stop learning and don’t ever feel like you know it all. You know always feel like, it’s something else you need to know and learn. I think learning is the best thing for all of us. It keeps our mind working and we don’t become settled. So long as you are learning, everything is limitless. There are no limits to anything, so long as you continue to learn daily, you know something. I would say continue learning no matter what,” said Smith.

Ben Fritz

I recently had an opportunity to speak with Ben Fritz, whose work ethic is as inspiring as his doughnuts.

By: Joshua Conner

One of my main motivations for featuring Ben Fritz is because he is the best of both worlds. His work ethics, motivational social media presence & entrepreneurial spirit, inspires me personally & professionally. While the company he co-founded Beacon Doughnuts provides not only scrumptious doughnuts, but is also a brand that positively impacts people. Fritz is a personal growth coach and co-founder of Beacon Doughnuts, based in Chicago, Illinois.

What is a day in the life of Fritz like?

“I usually get up at, let’s say 6 am. I get up, journal. So what journaling looks like for me, is basically freewrite, I have like a big notebook so, I just freewrite, one of those large pages, until I’m done. So it’s like stream of consciousness, I don’t have a specific topic or anything.  Then after that I’ll write a gratitude list of 5 things that I am thankful for. I do a 10 minute meditation using the calm app, and then at that point, I’m ready to eat some breakfast. I get my breakfast, and then I head to the gym, and train a few sessions. Then I come back somewhere along lunch time. I come back, I make some lunch, then I’ll relax for an hour or so.

Usually for the middle part of the afternoon, from 1:30 to 4:30, I’ll do administrative type of stuff, and I’ll write anything that I need to get done. If I have errands to do, I’ll take care of that in that part of the day. Then I will go back to the gym for a couple of sessions at night or I’ll do some of my life coaching calls with clients. Then usually around 7:30 or so, I’ll call it quits for the night. I just try to eat my last bite of food, hanging out with my fiancé and my dog, do a little reading, watch some Netflix, and just some random relaxing time, and try to be in bed around 10:00,” said Fritz.

Fritz often posts insightful quotes on his Instagram, but which one is his favorite?

“Oh man, that’s a really good one, let’s see. That’s a hard one to narrow down, I have so many good ones. Oh, I’ve got a good one, I actually have it saved to use as a post on social media at some point, but the quote is:

“May your choices reflect your hopes, not your fears,” said Nelson Mandela.

I know that it’s short, but so insightful at the same time,” said Fritz.

Fritz says the title of his life story would be, “You never know,” and Bradley Cooper would play him in a movie.

What donut matches Fritz personality?

“You know, I’m actually going to go with an old-fashioned, because it is very simple, but incredible. To me, I think I have very simple rules that I live my life by and I think it’s a great way to do it,” said Fritz.

Fritz’s most memorable year is this year, although he aspires to make every year memorable.

“I would say this year, and I hope the trend continues. I think if each year of my life is not my most memorable, then I am doing something wrong. It’s been like a crazy year for me, most recently had some health issues, I’ve kind of been in the worst health I’ve been in. That was a big challenge and still parts of it continue to be a challenge. I am grateful, I think it’s been an opportunity to open my eyes, just to me personally and life in general.

I got engaged last year, so it doesn’t quite fall in, I was 15 days short of 2018, but still I’m going to count that. So wedding planning, and learning a lot about my relationship. Which I always love to be learning, especially with someone else, I think you can learn at an even faster rate about yourself and who you are in a relationship, that’s been great,” said Fritz.

Fritz also explained this year is his most memorable because he opened Beacon Doughnuts with his cousin and he started life/personal growth coaching.

“I think just in general this year, because this has been a good year for learning. I hope every year, I’m doing bigger and better things,  but also learning. With learning comes failure and success, and that’s what I want. So this year was great, but I hope to make next year more memorable,” said Fritz.
