Helping Senior Citizens in the Tampa Bay Community Feel More Included – #ThatBusinessShow – Featuring Nicholas Paras and Theresa Turner

Helping Senior Citizens in the Tampa Bay Community Feel More Included – #ThatBusinessShow – Featuring Nicholas Paras and Theresa Turner

#ThatBusinessShow aired today with Jamie Meloni alone in the studio with our producer Gary Gilkey who produces the live video stream, available on tampabayradio.com.  Our guest for the hour, Deborah Cox Roush, was called up to Washington to work on the transition team with Donald Trump as she was his Campaign Director for the Republican Party in Florida and is very involved in the campaign.  We will invite her back in the future and she has been on the program before and can be viewed here.  Kelly Wilson was out sick and Jamie used the opportunity to discuss his favorite topic with Gary, Professional Wrestling.  Well, maybe not his favorite topic, but one he definitely enjoys talking about.

Gary Gilkey, who recently came on the show as the new producer for the streamcast, is very connected to the Tampa area wrestling environment.  He works with shows on announcing and helps with promotions with the local up and coming wrestlers at the schools.  With his background as an assistant to Bubba the Love Sponge, he came across many of the industry greats including Hulk Hogan and Macho Many Randy Savage.  Jamie and Gary share some good laughs on the Tampa based wrestlers which are many in the region.  Tampa is home to Hulk Hogan and the wrestling school which produces the NXT brand of wrestlers through the WWE.  Gary has also recently became inspired to launch his bar trivia business due to the inspiration he received listening to the guests and Jamie on the program.  His business today has 19 staff members and multiple bar locations across several states.

In the 2nd hour, the #MorningDiscussion turns to Real Estate, Jamie’s business and Gary uses the opportunity to interview Jamie on the ins and outs of buying a house.  Discussion points ranged from HOAs and COAs and their differences, Zillow and its valuation techniques, and how to best manage the home buying process when you yourself are not highly knowledgeable about buying a home.  Many listeners and even our guests have forgotten that Jamie is a top producing Real Estate agent in Tampa, specializing in the sale of bank owned homes, but he can help you buying or selling a home in Tampa Bay too.  Reach out to him at 813-760-8516 or email jamie@tampabayradio.com for more information!

This morning at 8AM it was #TechThursday, hosted by one of our great show partners, Nicholas Paras – CEO of Alpha Computing Solutions!

Our last guest this morning on #TechThursday was Theresa Turner, Founder and Owner of Tax Happens! This morning though, she came on to discuss her non-profit, Riverview Our Town, Inc.! Riverview Our Town’s purpose is to provide humanitarian aid to individuals within the community. Including but not limited to senior citizens with limited resources and home bound seniors. Expanding to other segments of the population as needs are identified. The most important purpose of the Riverview Our Town Inc is to continue Riverview’s Annual Holiday dinner for seniors.  The plan is to expand that event to provide for home bound seniors. Additionally the organization will work to meet humanitarian needs of other segments of the community as the needs are identified. The question for Theresa? What makes her so passionate about Senior Citizens? Mainly because she feels that Senior Citizens are an overlook part of our community.

First up on the 7AM hour, Jamie Meloni and Kelly Wilson invited Brian Kornfeld of PopKorn Apps onto the discussion! Brian is the Founder of PopKorn Apps where he works to design apps at a fraction of the cost of the typical app designer. Brian has a background in aerospace engineering and utilizes his extensive knowledge of systems and processes to design apps efficiently, thus reducing the time and cost to market versus his competitors. We touched on the RhiKnow App he developed last year that works as a social network to get recommendations from just your friend/peer network on places to eat, travel and more; think of it as Yelp with just recommendations from people you know and trust. This app can be found on iOS and Android operating systems free of charge too.  Brian also elaborates on some of his other creations including Cheap Buzz which is a great way for college students to hear about deals at local bars. CheepBuzz allows for bars to post any special and have the users sort through and see what they might like.  Users can even get better specials by using the “Chick-In” function, which will only work while they are at a given bar during the time of the deal. We also heard about Eazy Menu which is a new and innovative way to help you pick your best option to eat at a large number of restaurants. EazyMenu takes your dietary preferences and restrictions to help comb through large menus while helping you easily read in a dark restaurant, saving you time and stress.  There have been many app success stories in the news lately including PikMyKid which we highlighted last year just after launch and today is in discussion with Microsoft on a deal. With the move from desktop to mobile, apps are in high demand, you just need an idea to get started.  Brian invites you out for a discussion free of charge – give him a call at 727-415-6705 and visit him online at www.popkornapps.com!

Next up on the 7AM Hour was Tim Pickens, Owner of Wonderfall! Tim Pickens is a fourth generation Floridian, minster, inventor, and small business owner who has always been creative; he just didn’t know until about twenty years ago when he was helping his sister set up her Christmas village display.  He made his own snow for the display by rubbing two Styrofoam blocks together above the display. Both thought they should go buy a snow machine for a village display, thinking there would be one.there wasn’t.  Three months later, he sat up in bed provoked by a thought so clear it was almost an image before him:  make a box, create the right size holes in the box floor for the snow material, and slow agitation will evenly and gradually create a gentle snowfall effect. Ever since then, he has been making snow and confetti machines. The effects are as realistic as you want them to be and we make sure you have the best materials to choose from.  Wonderfall is his newest creation and Tim hopes that  you enjoy it; it’s wireless, which allows you to create your own custom falling effect with “snow” and party confetti, and you can easily mount it from a single point. To learn more, head over to: www.mywonderfall.com!

Carmen S. Bland, Esq. is a current member of the Florida Bar in good standing. She served the people of Tampa Bay as an Assistant Public Defender for over eight years.
