That Business Show Recap 04-23-2015 Featuring Lauren Silva and Yeager and Company with Charlie the Plumber

8 years ago today, I was hired at Coldwell Banker South Tampa with one home sale to my credit and not a clue of what I was doing in Real Estate. 1400+ sales later and a radio show on top of that, I know I found my home in Real Estate and have to thank Debra McMillen for hiring me and my mentor Amanda Huggins for teaching me so much early in my career. To those struggling to find their paths in a career, ask yourself, who is your mentor? Who are you striving to impress and learn from each day? If you do not know, then find a mentor, a leader in your industry and learn from them.

My success in Real Estate led me to a show on the radio first starting with a weekly radio show on Real Estate to the now daily radio show focusing on business ownership and entrepreneurs and something I look forward to each and every morning.

On today’s show, I opened up with Lauren Silva, Financial Advisor with Ameriprise Financial.  Lauren is a 15 year veteran in the financial services industry and was on air to give us tips on proper retirement planning and discussing her holistic approach to financial planning. Lauren believes that reaching retirement is a major milestone in one’s life—it’s not an endpoint but a major financial transition. A shift away from an accumulation mindset to focus on establishing a sustainable and meaningful lifestyle based on savings that will endure a long, 25+ year retirement and uncertainty is a major reason for financial stress and failure, but it does not have to be. Financial stress can be eliminated. Financial confidence will facilitate greater well-being for one’s self and family.  Lauren acts as your financial coach and touches on the importance of health and wellness in her life and how she has had to fire in-effective coaches because they were too soft and did not give her the push and honest feedback she needed to succeed as a triathlete and she employs this same honest/realistic feedback to each of her clients.  Lauren is available to help you with proper financial planning and can be reached at 727-804-7947 or email at and online at and connect with her on twitter at @laurensilvanews

On the 2nd half of the show, I welcomed Charlie Paleveda in studio on behalf of Jim Yeager of Yeager and Company.  Thursday’s at 8:30 am is the Remodeler’s Corner and a weekly feature highlighting Yeager and Company, a 3rd generation flooring and remodeling company based in Odessa, Florida.  Charlie talks about Jim Yeager’s latest initiative, PI to PI.  PI-PI stands for Paris Island to Private Industry and Jim Yeager is looking for both employers and Marines to get involved.
