Welcome to another episode of #ThatBusinessShow where we work to bring you positive programming each morning on 1250WHNZ about Tampa Bay’s entrepreneurs and community leaders. We pride ourselves on being a show for the community, rather than another show full of political arguments and dramatizations. Please help support the show, ways to do this are memberships in Tampa Bay Business Owners – apply at http://www.tbbo.org/join-us, and you can also support the show by picking up a ticket to our Business Symposium on October 28th, tickets available at www.tbbo.org/symposium. Thank you to all of our listeners, viewers, as well as readers and staff that make the show possible each morning. Remember to catch the show, airing every weekday at 7AM to 9AM on #1250WHNZ, with our archive of live streams available on www.tampabayradio.com! Our guests from today were Lindsay Grinstead and Sheryl Hunter at the 7AM Hour, and Kim Malatesta and Nicholas Paras on the 8AM Hour for our #TechThursday special!
