Today we welcomed Cammie Griffin to the program first.  She is the co-Founder of Belleair Coffee Company in Belleair Bluffs, FL and is an active Real Estate agent too.  Located at 100 N Indian Rocks Rd, Cammie and her fiancé opened the business just over a month ago.  Citing her fiancé’s love of coffee and the lack of nearby coffee shops, she and her fiancé took the entrepreneurial journey and opened a coffee shop.  They offer pastries along with coffee and her vision is to establish a health food business along with the coffee.  They are open Monday through Friday from 7am to 4pm and weekends from 8am to 4pm.  You can find them online at www.belleaircoffeecompany.com!

At 7:30, Regular Contributor Kelly Hamm joined the #MorningDiscussion.  She is founder and Managing Principal Consultant at Billmeyer Hamm Consulting and brings over 25 years’ expertise as an HR Strategic Business Partner, HR Director, Executive Leadership Coach, Organizational Design Consultant, and Innovative Thought Leader focused on implementing Workforce Strategies, Culture & Change Management, Business Communications, and Talent Optimization solutions for her clients all across the country. Prior to forming her own consulting company, Kelly held a number of leadership positions at a highly recognized and respected Healthcare company. As a trusted leader, Kelly has successfully led numerous human capital initiatives that resulted in implementing robust, agile, engaged, and financially strong workforce organizations.  She shares with us an inspiring story today on the value of familial relationship discussing the “Billy Award” She was one of 7 brothers and sisters and their father gave out an award called the Billy Award (derived from her maiden name Billmeyer) which was given to the child that showed the best love, care and support for others in life and in business.  She relays those same family value principles to the corporate world where she works with managers to engage and interact with their staff and to improve their workforce culture.  She also discusses her proprietary “Hamm Method” that she applies to all businesses which guides leaders into focusing on 4 critical areas of their business for success.  They are 1) business goals, 2) financial responsibility, 3) transparent culture, 4) performance excellence.  The area where most leaders are consistently weak too is business goals per Kelly.  We ended the discussion with a focus on clarity and the importance thereof in business and she invites anyone who needs help improving their workforce culture to reach out to her for a free consultation at 941-201-4650.  She is also having an event on August 10th from 8:30 am to 10 am at the Manatee Community Foundation located at 2820 Manatee Ave W in Bradenton on the “5 Steps to Ignite Your Workforce Culture Proven to Increase Your Bottom Line” Register online at www.billmeyerhamm.com!

At 8AM, Jamie Meloni welcomed in Nicholas Paras of Alpha Computing Solutions, of which you can learn more at: http://www.alphacomputing.com/. Today is Thursday which means it was #TechThursday here on #ThatBusinessShow! On the more serious note, Nick brought up the troubles of the country when it comes to real tech solutions. The sad reality is that internet speeds and even connection can vary by zip code. Some Americans don’t even have internet service to begin with. He touched on the battle for net neutrality, and to prevent companies to create fast lanes only for paying customers, and many more monopolizing actions. ” On the grand scheme of things, you really don’t want that you really want kind of this open Internet where you can freely go where you wish.” Nicholas Paras on #ThatBusinessShow. Maybe you’re concerned with the current rising costs of your IT services, or maybe you are just running short on time because of your expanding business and need to hand over the reins of some services to someone else. Whatever your reason, Alpha Computing Solutions can help you with quality IT services today.Head over to their site to learn more.
