Coming on first to share his story with our listeners was Vincent Lanci, the Owner of Strive to Lead. Vincent began Strive to Lead just months ago, after enduring a tragic accident. In 2013, an intoxicated driver struck him, just days before what should’ve been his last Undergraduate semester. Being left for dead on the street, he was very near death. After awaking from a coma with several injuries like a broken tibia and fibula, and sadly significant brain injuries as well. An estimated full year recovery, sleepless nights, and countless therapy sessions, taught Vincent that he could either sit and sulk, or thrive in his “second life”. Therefore, he founded Strive to Lead, in order to inspire and educate people and business leaders. By using his incredible story to inspire others to have a “never give up” attitude, Vincent #HelpsOurCity! So check out or email Vincent at!

Andrew S. Samuel became President, Chief Executive Officer and Director of the Sunshine Bank in 2014, and now he’s come on the #MorningAir with Jamie Meloni! With extensive financial experience and knowledge, Andrew is quite the expert! Andrew has grown banks and business that would sell for billions! Speaking about his start and his success, and also about the workings of Sunshine Bank – Andrew #HelpsOurCity too! So head to, and if you missed the show, head to now to listen to Andrew S. Samuel on the #MorningAir!
