My opening guest today was Jay Rosenberg, Owner and Founder of Designs by Jay Rosenberg.  Jay’s company specializes in interior design, staging, as well as remodeling and he found his passion for interior design at a young age through trips to homes with his mother.  His talents for design shown through at the empty and lacking homes and quickly people were asking him for assistance in design and paying for his services.  Today, he works with a number of home builders on staging homes as well as Real Estate investors looking to flip their purchases.  Jay is also very involved in the community and talks about his involvement with the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, Hands Across the Bay as well as Dean Headstrom’s Foundation for Melanoma Awareness on this opening segment.

Jay was also a Season 4 American Idol finalist and tells the story of his pathway to Hollywood on the show.  He was not familiar with the show prior to attending an audition and went to the audition to support a friend and had not intended on auditioning.  After hearing the people in line practicing their crafts, Jay knew he had a much better chance at advancing than what he was hearing and made it all the way to the Top 32, his friend he was supporting did not make it through the first audition ironically.  Jay is a frequent singer at sporting events, belting out the National Anthem for the Rays and other events in the area and even gives us a quick taste of his singing talent at the close of the 2nd segment.  Jay is available for singing engagements as well as Design projects via phone at 727-409-6920 or email at  Be sure to visit and like his Facebook page as well located at

On the 2nd half of the show, I welcomed to studio, Steve and Suzie Santorsola, Founders of Rapport 24/7.  This is a Tampa based tech company that specializes in business to business software development with a focus on video.  They were joined in studio by Eric Lamar Smith, a Preferred Provider of theirs and Owner of My Hangout Academy, where he uses Google Hangouts to enhance business owners through the use of Google Hangouts and video and Matt Nelson, an Advertising specialist.  Steve opens the segment with a discussion of their video application that allows for ease of use, on-location video taking through the use of a smart phone or tablet device.  Through their subscription based platform, users can then easily transfer this video to their platform where it can then be disseminated to their social media platforms, resulting in consistent, fresh video information, of which the search engines love.  Users can use the software for video testimonials in the field for instance and this also gives them the ability to capture positive video reviews by handling them on the spot, rather than asking for people to give them at their leisure.
