The show opened up today with a political discussion with myself and the always opinionated and boisterous #AmericanPlumber Charlie the Plumber. Charlie checks in each Thursday on behalf of Jim Yeager of Yeager & Company, a third generation flooring and remodeling company based in Odessa, FL and learn more about them at http://www.yeagerflooring.com. Charlie, a Marine, calls himself the Politically Incorrect Conservative, Christian, Capitalistic Plumber and chimed in today on the recent tragedy that saw the loss of 4 Marines in the shooting at Chattanooga. Charlie and I discuss how the media spun the event as well as hear his views on gun ownership and the political environment.
The 2nd segment featured my guest for the show, Carol Margolis. Carol is a business travel industry insider/expert and author of the best-selling book Business Travel Success . . . How to Reduce Stress, Be More Productive and Travel with Confidence. Carol, who has extensive business travel experience and had her fair share of travel nightmares, saw a need in the marketplace for guidance on this area and delved into it as an author and consultant. She has since left her prior position and now focuses solely on the industry as a speaker and consultant. She shares some great tips on the segment about business travel including some basic ones such as having the hotel’s phone number on you at all times and advice on credit card usage for business travel and we also touch on the taxi business with a discussion of how Uber and Lyft are impacting the business travel business. Carol offers a free copy of her e-book 70 Secrets to Safe Travel by visiting http://www.smartwomentravelers.com and inputting your name and email and you can also learn more about her and the business at http://www.businesstravelsuccess.com!
#AmericanPlumber and I wrapped up the show together on the last half of the show as we touch briefly on a few other hot topic issues including the confederate flag issue and border security and had to cut it short as we never have enough talk time when Charlie is on the show.
