Being in the Rhi-Know – #ThatBusinessShow with PopKorn Apps – Featuring Brian Kornfeld, Carole Sanek, Shaun Ajani, and Eli Gonzalez

Good morning and thank you for catching this morning’s show! Welcome back to another great morning discussion with Jamie Meloni of #ThatBusinessShow! Remember, the show airs at 7AM to 9AM on #1250WHNZ and http://www.tampabayradio.com, every weekday! At the show, we are proud to support the Tampa Bay Community. We are proud to invite every business owner to check out the Tampa Bay Business Owners, partners in hand of #ThatBusinessShow. Together, the show and the community provides exposure, education, and a sense of belonging that’s unmatched here in the bay area. If you’re wondering how you can be a part of this, head over to http://www.tbbo.org to find out more about the community. Join us for the 2nd Annual That Business Show Awards Dinner, where we will highlight many different business owners that appeared on the show throughout 2016 and hand out awards. Nominees will be announced on Friday January 6th.  Be sure to save the date!  This event sold out in 3 days last year.  This year will be at least twice as large as last year and will be held at the Brand New Bryan Glazer Family JCC! Find out more at: https://goo.gl/kQN7qj! On the #MorningAir today, Jamie and Kelly welcomed Brian Kornfeld of PopKorn Apps, Carole Sanek, Shaun Ajani, and Eli Gonzalez to the show!

In the 7am hour today, we welcomed Regular Contributor Brian Kornfeld to the program.  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!

We also welcomed Carole Sanek at 7AM! Carole Sanek is the CEO of Butterfly Boom Productions and the creator of two podcast shows; The Crazy Marketing Ladies Show and The Nearness of You, a history show based on her father’s love letters home from WWII.  She has worn many hats in her career choices over the years and moved here with the intent to work in real estate but that quickly changed when she learned to blog.  From there just kept learning as much as she could about social media.  One day a friend told her she should open a business and it has been non-stop ever since.  Carole is a freelance writer, content creator and has written three award winning blogs. Her successful venture into podcasting has brought her many public speaking engagements about creating successful branding and getting eyeballs on whom you are and of course podcasting. What’s next? Find out on this morning’s discussion!

Eli Gonzalez is a Best-Selling Ghostwriter and the President of The Ghost Publishing. Before starting his own company, Eli was the Senior Ghostwriter for Xulon Press, the largest Christian publishing company in the country. There, he wrote for nationally recognized ministry leaders and on widely successful book projects. He also taught newly hired writers the nuances of ghostwriting. To date, he has worked on over 70 books! The Ghost Publishing writes books in just about every genre but they specialize in building credibility for business owners who want to become business leaders by writing intelligent, effective, and engaging books for them.

The Aga Khan Foundation Walk is an event that is held every year in Florida, and most major cities around the country to highlight the works of the Aga Khan Foundation. This year, it is on Sunday, November 20th, around 10am, at the beautiful Water Works Park in downtown Tampa.

Shaun is the Regional Communications & Media volunteer for the Aga Khan Foundation from Miami.

Full House Liquidation and Wealth Management on #ThatBusinessShow – Featuring Matt DiGennaro and Danny Triplett

Full House Liquidation and Wealth Management on #ThatBusinessShow – Featuring Matt DiGennaro and Danny Triplett

Welcome to the #MorningDiscussion with your hosts, Jamie Meloni and Kelly Wilson! We are very happy to bring our listeners news and happenings from where it matters, our community. 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: 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. If you wanted to join the discussion and showcase your business and how it affects the Tampa Bay community, head over to: www.tbsinterview.com! Today on the #MorningAir, Jamie Meloni and Kelly Wilson discussed the recent Presidential Election and how they both feel on that topic. At the 8AM Hour, Jamie and Kelly brought on Danny Triplett and Matt DiGennaro to the show! If you missed out, you can head to: http://www.tampabayradio.com now to get filled in! And also, remember to check out Jamie’s YouTube Page for all the episodes of #ThatBusinessShow at www.youtube.com/jamiemeloni!

For the 7AM Hour, Jamie Meloni and Kelly discussed their thoughts and feelings about the presidential elections and how they felt about the subject. If you didnt catch that segment and wanted to hear their thoughts, then head over to: www.tampabayradio.com to tune in!

At 8AM, Jamie Meloni and Kelly Wilson invited Danny Triplett to the discussion! Danny Triplett has served as the president of Full House Liquidation since he founded the Tampa-based company in 2010. The family-owned business, referred to in short as FHL, is a local Bay area estate-sale company, specializing in entire household liquidations. Triplett is also a certified personal property appraiser with the Certified Appraiser’s Guild of America (CAGA) out of St Louis. Just last summer, he sent one of his client’s original Norman Rockwell pencil etchings off to Sotheby’s in New York City, and saw it sell for $10,000. Over the past seven years, Triplett has seen his company grow, not so much in size, as it has in quality. In the local Bay area estate sale realm, his company is known for conducting high quality estate liquidations. Full House Liquidation has appeared on TV, 5 times over the last 3 years. Everything from their large-scale auction of the entire contents of The Historic Don Vicente Hotel in Ybor city last summer, to their recent liquidation of the multi-million dollar family home of the late world famous opera singer, Maria Callas, in Odessa. Triplett’s company, Full House Liquidation, services four counties throughout the Bay area, including Hillsborough, Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando. The phone calls and emails that continue to come in each week, are no doubt a result of TV shows like American Pickers and Antiques Roadshow. These shows have definitely created an intriguing sensation, which continues to draw national attention to the niche industry of estate-sales. In the U.S. alone, estate sales have become a billion dollar per year industry nationwide. What was once an unknown and untapped market, has now become an intriguing and quickly growing industry that sees people everywhere, scrambling to find their next… “hidden treasure”!

On our last segment we featured Matt DiGennaro, Founder and CEO of Seabridge Wealth Management. Matt and Jamie discussed his background, with over 25 years on Wall Street in the securities and asset management business. He was in the global market, and has expertise learned from being the Managing Director and Head of Bank of America’s $38 billion asset management division for Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia and Latin America. Conducting business in over 45 countries, he is quite the experienced and professional asset manager. Matt and Jamie touched on what makes Seabridge Wealth Management different, working for the client instead of the commission, being a “fee only” asset management company, meaning in a nutshell that they don’t have any hidden agendas to work for the commission like other brokers. Working for the best of the client, Seabridge Wealth Management has experts that work to diversify their client’s portfolio, rather than to predict which market is going to be the “hottest” this quarter. He had discussed a great set of tips and information on the show, and that’s insight that only listeners of #ThatBusinessShow will hear! Catch the show every morning at 7AM to 9AM on #1250whnz or head to http://www.tampabayradio.com!

If you’ve got these down, then you’re on the right path. Next question, why is happiness so important to business and society? For this one, you’re going to have to #TuneIN to the show!
