Denis Nurmela and Sandra Dee Robinson rehearse on the set of their new Saturday morning cable television show.
When Denis Nurmela wants to get away from the computer and relax, he spends time attending to the fruit trees on his 5-acre ranch in west Menifee.

"The thing I like most is coming out here, digging holes and planting trees," he said, walking a visitor through his desert orchard, which requires a fair amount of maintenance in this climate. "I talk to all my trees and tell them what my expectations are."

When he's on the job, Nurmela does much the same in helping others realize their expectations in business. His "Saturday Morning CEO & Economan" radio talk show, broadcast from the Eagle Radio Network & EagleVision studios on the Mt. San Jacinto College campus, has become a popular resource for those interested in building their own business. But now, he's taking it a step further.

This Saturday, Nurmela and his partner Sandra Dee Robinson will debut a new venture -- a cable television talk show focusing on the secrets of success in business, relationships and life in general.

The show can be seen at 9:30 a.m. every Saturday morning via channel 45 on Verizon FIOS and channels 0 and 126 on Time Warner Cable, as well as streamed live on The audio of the show is also simulcast on radio. This Saturday’s first show will feature Maurice DiMino, an expert speaker trainer. He will discuss how to find one's million dollar message and how to use it to help you become successful.

Robinson has 13 years experience acting in more than 30 television programs, including CSI, Another World, General Hospital and many others. She operates Charisma on Camera as an expert on-camera coach. Nurmela has more than 30 years experience building corporations. He coaches other business owners, is an author, speaker and business college professor. Together, they share the secrets of their own successes with those of the guests they bring on the show.

Nurmela loves sharing what he has learned over the years with others. His book, speaking engagements and college classes are all opportunities, he feels, to help and serve others. His business goals align with his personal goals. Nurmela says he is simply trying to do his part before he devotes full-time service to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints as a senior missionary with his wife at some point
