Equalizing Inequality on #WorkingWomenWednesday Featuring Jena Abernathy, Dr. Chris Pittman, Jessica Rivelli, Kim Nauman and Shannon Carlton

Christmas in July is right around the corner. This is the 6th Annual event being held by the Tampa Bay Business Owners and is July 21st from 5 to 8:30pm at the TPepin Center located at 4121 N 50th St Tampa. This business social event will have 500+ in attendance and will feature Tequila drinks from Mr. Margarita and lots of food vendors along with vendor booths. Tickets are $29 and $19 for TBBO members and you can purchase tickets or learn about sponsorship opportunities at www.tbbo.org/cij

Today I welcomed Jena Abernathy to the program. Jena is an speaker and Author of the newly released book, “The Inequality Equalizer” which teaches people how to maximize your career success. Originally designed with the working woman in mind, the book has lessons, techniques and stories that cross both genders and is a great read for any professional looking for guidance in ascending the ladder of success. We open with a discussion on being mindful that we are all “junkyard dogs” that need guidance on how to become a pedigree in the workforce. We move into the power of branding and the importance of keeping our online profiles intact. Social media is forever so be careful of the image you are portraying online. Jena is also a nationally recognized leader in human capital management, performance excellence, and organizational development. A sought-after speaker, she is a passionate advocate for women in executive and governing board roles. She has written for and been featured in a wide variety of media, including CNN, the Financial Times, CBS Money Watch, FOX Business, and the Miami Herald. Jena shares with us 5 ways to improve your resume which include: 1) Get rid of the career objective statement 2) Eliminate generic phrasing 3) Avoid bland work history 4) Delete the irrelevant and 5) Banishing the over-designed resume. If you missed the #MorningDiscussion, catch the recap as she elaborates on this and more over on www.tampabayradio.com or the video stream at youtube.com/jamiemeloni Jena is also a resource for hiring CEOs for businesses with a specialty in healthcare and you can learn more about her and her services at www.jenaabernathy.com (be sure to only use 1 n in Jena!)

At 7:30, we were joined by Expert Contributor Dr. Chris Pittman, Medical Director and CEO of Vein911. Dr. Pittman is triple board certified and one of only a few hundred physicians Board-Certified in Venous and Lymphatic Medicine.  Known for their minimally invasive non-surgical technique for the treatment of varicose veins, Dr. Pittman and Vein 911 is revolutionizing vein care.  Their mission is to help you look and feel your best and they have offices in Tampa and St. Petersburg and can easily be reached by calling 855-VEIN-911. Dr. Pittman is a trained radiologist and spoke in the opening segment about varicose veins and their pain free outpatient procedure for their treatment.  Many doctors practicing vein treatment still utilize a surgical procedure for this treatment and Dr. Pittman is adamant that is no longer necessary.  His techniques using Ultrasound-Guided Sclerotherapy can have your legs looking as good as new in just a few procedures and without the pain of other procedures.  He routinely sees patients treated by other procedures and has near 100% patient satisfaction in this group.  Dr. Pittman also elaborates on some of the other conditions of the legs that may be related to undiagnosed vein disorders such as restless leg syndrome and night cramps as well as ankle swelling.  Using the same technique to treat varicose veins, many patients report significant improvement in these conditions when treated by Dr. Pittman.  If you are experiencing these issues and have not had success with traditional techniques, get in touch with Vein911 today by calling 855-VEIN-911 (855-834-6911).   We spent the entire first hour with the Doctor and we touched on many other topics such as some of the secrets of the Vein Care industry that Doctors would not want you to know. Dr. Pittman has over 25 years local, state, and national medical political leadership experience: President, Florida Medical Association Political Action Committee (FMA PAC); Member, FMA Board of Governors; Past Chair, FMA Advisory Committee on Health Care Information Technology (HIT) and current FMA subject matter expert on HIT; Past Vice-Chair and current member, FMA Council on Medical Economics and Health Care Delivery Innovation.  He is a sought after speaker in his field in addition to the patients that seek out his care.  Learn more at www.vein911.com or give them a call 855-VEIN-911.

At 8am, we kicked off #WorkingWomenWednesday on #ThatBusinessShow. Jessica Rivelli, Founder of the networking group, filled us in on the guests and their relationships with the networking group. We also touched on the Working Women Conference being held September 8th and 9th at the Straz Center.

Joining us first was Kim Nauman, Owner of the Empress Tea Room in Carrollwood. With a strong background in marketing and advertising coming from the corporate world with Shells Restaurant, Kim took the entrepreneurial dive first into the catering business by opening Divine Menus. Then in 2008 after seeing an ad during the Super Bowl, Kim and her husband bought and became the third owners of The Empress Tea Room. Specializing in events and gift sales, this niche restaurant is also one of only two locations that serve tea in the manner of the English. You can stop by for high tea at noon or any other hour of the day and experience the true “tea experience” at The Empress Tea Room. Kim and her husband now have two business lines to their day, catering and the Tea Room. Consider the Empress Tea Room for your next event (very popular for bridal showers per Kim) and learn more at www.divinemenusevents.com!

At 8:30, we were joined by Shannon Carlton, Owner and Founder of Intentional Growth Strategies, LLC.  Shannon Carlton worked for a small publication in the Brandon area for 10 years before she made a huge leap of faith and quit her job to start her own business. Her personal mission statement is to use the voice God gave her to foster relationships that encourage, inspire and change the world!  Shannon transforms the way small business owners do business! This is accomplished by helping clients identify and clarify their real estate objectives and then working with them to accomplish those objectives. Additionally, she can help the small entrepreneur by providing them with an affordable workspace solution and educational opportunities for their entrepreneurial endeavors.   Shannon is working to “build community” and shares with us her vision and mission and how she balances work and life as a mother of two teenage daughters.

Business Brokerage and Buying HUD Homes for $100 Down – Featuring Michael Garrison, Denis Burke, Chris Krimitsos and Lindsay Grinstead

#TBBOTuesday was the focus of #ThatBusinessShow today on 1250WHNZ. TBBO, or Tampa Bay Business Owners, is an 8 year old business owner only organization founded to help connect Tampa Bay business owners through education and collaboration. Monthly events and workshops work to guide entry to mid-level business owners and today, the membership is nearly 300 and going strong. Take a moment to learn about TBBO at www.tbbo.org and we invite you out to our next Main Event, free of charge, if you mention this blog and email jamie@tampabayradio.com. We will add you to the guest list to check out the organization and we know you will see the value in membership after attending an event. The next Main Event is July 6th from 5 to 7:30pm at the Centre Club and will focus on Healthcare for Your Business by Dr. Eric J. Crall. Expected attendance is 100 to 150 so it’s an excellent networking opportunity as well.

Opening up the program today was one of our newest TBBO members, Michael Garrison. Michael is a Business Broker with Business Broker World and has worked in Real Estate and Business sales since 2010. Michael is a Veteran of our Military and transitioned to business brokerage and Real Estate after leaving the Military. We learn some of the basics of the business in this segment such as business valuation which per Michael ranges on average from 2 to 3 times net income. This varies with business but is the industry average in Tampa Bay. We discussed some of the challenges that an individual service provider has in selling their business and learn that business brokering is not as competitive as other areas of brokerage such as commercial and residential real estate sales. With approximately 2000 business brokers in Florida, Michael is able to keep a steady supply of inventory in his pocket for sale. We discussed the business marketplace and learn that demand and supply is in good order and that many businesses are being financed via seller financing, as the availability of business and SBA loans is limited and difficult to get for the typical buyer. Learn more about their services at www.businessbrokerworld.com or give Michael a call today at 813-966-6956.

At 7:30, I welcomed Denis Burke, CEO and President of Business Broker World. Denis is an Irish immigrant and shares his story of entrepreneurism that began at age 11 selling vegetables in Ireland and led to roles in restaurants and grocery stores before he landing in the US in 1986. Today Denis is an active member of Toastmaster International, The International Franchise Professional Group and the International Business Brokers Association and has been selling businesses for the past 2 years. We discussed the bar and restaurant business, an area that Jamie hopes to explore in the future, and discuss some of the regulations, taxes and industry surprises that many new owners encounter when opening up a bar or restaurant. We touched on business valuation again and go deeper into how an individual service provider can create a sellable brand independent of themselves. Learn more at www.businessbrokerworld.com or contact him today to sell a business at 941-224-3893!

At 8am, Chris Krimitsos joined the program. Coming off a very successful event at the iHeart Radio station last night, Chris shares with the audience more about crowdfunding and his documentary “The Messengers” which were the focus of the event yesterday evening. We learn that September 1st is the goal for the completion of the film and then February for the launch of the film. They will begin to send it out to film festivals and hopefully will be picked up by a Film Festival. He is looking to raise $19,900 through crowdfunding and will have the site up on Indigogo by July 1st for those who are willing and able to assist, no matter how small the donation. Check out the documentary online – www.themessengersdoc.com and please help out with whatever donation you can when the crowd funding site is opened!

Lindsay Grinstead joined the discussion shortly thereafter and is the Founder of Tonic Consulting Group. After graduating from the University of Florida with a BS in Public Relations and Psychology (guess which one she uses most today!), Lindsay moved to San Francisco for fame and fortune in the PR industry.  Instead, she discovered the amazing world of experiential marketing and joined Jack Morton Worldwide, starting as low man on the totem pole and growing into an SVP, Sr. Account Director, consistently growing and managing the largest book of business on the West Coast.  Clients included eBay, VMware, Charles Schwab, Samsung & T-Mobile. Upon moving back to Tampa last fall, Lindsay decided to take her learnings in the agency world and started a consulting practice – Tonic Consulting Group. Tonic helps marketing agencies grow their top and bottom lines by enhancing both their sales & marketing efforts and improving their operations. Tonic believes that maximum success for any organization is only possible if both the external effort (sales & marketing) and the internal processes (operations) are working at their optimum capability.  Lindsay is an expert in LinkedIn marketing too and we touched on that and ways Tonic can help get exposure for your business in the marketplace. Check her out online at www.tonicconsultinggroup.com or give her a call today at 415-513-3205!

At 8:30, Jamie took control of the program with a discussion on HUD homes. Jamie is a listing broker for HUD, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and has sold over 400 HUD homes in the past 5 years alone. HUD homes are defaulted FHA mortgages and can be found for sale online at www.hudhomestore.com. HUD insures lenders so if a buyer defaults on a loan, HUD pays back the lender, acquires the home, then resells the home to recoup some of their loss. FHA loans make it possible for buyers to get into homes with little money down, now just 3.5%.   Jamie shares with us some of the programs that HUD has available on its “owned” inventory such as $100 down which allows buyers to replace the 3.5% down payment on a home with just $100 (applies to FHA buyers only) and also the Good Neighbor Next Door Program which allows teachers, firefighters and emergency responders to buy HUD homes at 50% off of the appraised value with the condition that you live in it for 3 years. There is a lot to know about HUD homes and Jamie regularly teaches area Realtors on the ins and outs of HUD homes. It’s important as a buyer in the marketplace to work with experienced and trained professional on HUD homes so for any questions, get in touch with Jamie today, jamie@tampabayradio.com or online at www.tampabayradio.com!

Opening up the show today was Ashley Drummonds and her father Ron Drummonds. Ashley is the creator of ABS Protein Pancakes and was featured on this season’s Shark Tank for the product. Her pitch and product were enough to get a deal with Daymond John too. The pancakes, which are loaded with protein, are a healthy, gluten free option for breakfast. They come in a bag that has 10 servings and are comparable to protein shakes and powders but they look, feel and prepare like pancakes. Ashley created the recipe herself from scratch and was her own personal creation for years until she began to imagine the possibility of marketing the product to the marketplace. This led to her spot on Shark Tank and now the product has taken off due to her exposure on Shark Tank, as well as many other media outlets and the product itself which has strong demand from the marketplace. Ashley goes on to explain that the pancakes are just an extension of her overall brand which focuses on health, wellness and fitness for the everyday women. Through coaching and consulting, Ashley works with women on a variety of areas to help them realize that they are beautiful no matter their physical appearance. She assists women with health, relationships and fitness through her YouTube channel which can be found here https://www.youtube.com/user/AshleyDrummondsTV as well as private consulting. You can find the pancakes available for sale online at http://abspancakes.com/ and more about Ashley at www.ashleydrummonds.com

IN the 7:30 spot, Ashley’s father, Ron, joined the discussion. Ron is an entrepreneur that turned a career in the meat cutting business into a career building homes and even entire developments. He is a self-made Millionaire and has seen several Real Estate market cycles, of which he discusses some in this segment. He and Ashley share with us her experience in the construction business before moving on to health and fitness and how she has helped her father with social media in business and how he helped her define her business goals through proper planning. After many successful flips and developments in the Tampa Bay area, Ron now practices Real Estates with Coldwell Banker in Lake County. This hour is a great story of family and entrepreneurism and can be found online at www.tampabayradio.com or on our YouTube Channel at www.youtube.com/jamiemeloni – learn more about Ron and his business at www.rkdconstruction.net!

At 8am, Aakash Patel, Founder of Elevate, Inc. was in studio. Aakash is the quintessential Where’s Waldo of Tampa Bay. He is frequently seen at events all over Tampa Bay and was named one of the most connected people in Tampa. From politicians to entrepreneurs, if you need some key connections in Tampa, you need a relationship with Aakash Patel and Elevate, Inc. Aakash shares with us how he used his role in public relations with a Hotel to network with people throughout Tampa Bay. He logged and followed up on those connections and it paid off. His business centers on making key connections for others in the area. AS he notes, one introduction can lead to millions of dollars in business/investment. Elevate works now with 20 clients and has a goal to reach 30 this year. The services also include key introductions at events, social media management and consulting. Aakash also shares with us the recent firestorm that was set off by a photo he posted with Donald Trump and elaborates on the power that social media has these days. Learn more about his services at www.elevate-inc.com!

Rounding out the 8am hour was Rachid Zahidi, CEO of Sentinel Background Checks. Rachid brings a wealth of expert experience spanning across multiple industries including risk management, background checks, International Business and Anti-Money laundering investigations. He is also the Author of the ground breaking book “The Business Immunity System: The Pitfalls & Side Effects of Data Handling, Privacy Issues, & Background Checks. Rachid and Jamie discuss the background check process for business owners and touch on the vast network of different sources and databases that house all of this critical information. Rachid touches on the importance of conducting proper background checks as well as how a proper check is done. We also learn about the various types of background checks and the advantages and weaknesses of them. Obviously privacy is a key area of concern in this business and we touch on that too and Rachid shares with the audience some general tips on how to hire the right people to fit your organization. Rachid and Sentinel Background Checks works with companies on tenant screening and consulting for HR in addition to general background checks and more can be learned about them at www.sbchecks.com!

Look for this under “my account” and “find your phone”. We continued the discussion with a talk on the generational gap that exists between the older and younger workforces and how the two can work together to complement each other. While age groups under 35 are typically more tech savvy, older professionals are typically more business savvy. This trend will eventually merge but for now leaders need to recognize and embrace this trend in their businesses.
