On the 2nd half of the show, Charlie the Plumber took center stage as part of the Remodeler’s Corner, a weekly feature brought to us by Yeager and Company, a third generation flooring and remodeling company based in Odessa, Florida.  Learn more about them at  Charlie. Aakash and I discussed how to brand Charlie online and gave him the Hashtag campaign of #AmericanPlumber with the hope that in a year’s time Charlie will have a brand that will resonate across Tampa and be involved in some of the Military Events around the community as he is a Marine and very committed to the American way of life.  Charlie also touches on some stories from his days as a professional wrestler and does not offend too many people on this segment.  Be sure to tweet and tag #AmericanPlumber when following the show and also use #ThatBusinessShow to help grow and promote the show!
