Remember that you can join the discussion every weekday morning at 7AM to 9AM on #1250WHNZ and on the web via our live audio and video streams at: http://www.tampabayradio.com! Tired of politics, weather, and sports? Just want to know what’s going on in your community? We’d agree with you. That’s why That Business Show with Jamie Meloni is on the air in the first place, because we feel that this community needs more exposure and support from those within the community. Tampa Bay has great entrepreneurial promise, and we see that through groups like the Tampa Bay Business Owners – which is why we believe the entrepreneurial spirit is alive and well.

At 7:30, we welcomed Barbara Brekke to the program. Barbara is also a member of Tampa Bay Business Owners (TBBO) and recently ventured into entrepreneurism leaving the corporate world of insurance. Barbara is the Founder and President of Go Beyond Your Dreams where she works with others on how to clarify their dreams and make them happen. She focuses on personal goals rather than business goals with her clients and with just over a year in business, she has already been through Toast Masters to improve her speaking, written a book, and is about to launch a podcast. All of these are differentiators in business and she got off on the right step in year one knocking these out. Her book entitled “Dream Weaver Goal Achieve” is available on her website at http://www.gobeyondyourdreams.com and also on Amazon and is a step by step process to discover what you really want in life and how to achieve it. She shares with us her personal story of coming from domestic violence and the importance of planning that she learned to develop as a result of this situation and today works with others to achieve their goals through proper planning. Barbara and Jamie share a great discussion on a snippet of the book which focuses on identifying the areas in your plan that you may not be thinking about and all of this again is available in her book. Find it online today at www.gobeyondyourdreams.com!
Our next guest was April Saland, Owner of A.L. Saland Insurance Solutions. April and her husband Les have worked in insurance for 13 years and offer all things insurance. From car and home to health and disability, Les and April know the marketplace. Coming from a strong background in health insurance sales, their model changed over the past year to include sales in all areas of insurance, adding the concept of a one-stop shop for their clients with regard to insurance. While insurance is not an exciting topic ever, April and Les bring levity to the topic through their witty and engaging personalities that are inviting to people of all personality types. We hear from them on how, as a married couple, they are able to separate work from business and Les touches on his involvement in baseball as an umpire, an area that Jamie himself has experience in as a volunteer umpire while in High School. We touch on open enrollment which begins on November 1st and Les fills us in on the current state of the health insurance marketplace as we close out. Consider them a resource for anything insurance – find them online at http://www.alsalandinsurance.com or give them a call at 813-995-0292 today!
