Equalizing Inequality in #TampaBay


At 8am, we kicked off #WorkingWomenWednesday on #ThatBusinessShow. Jessica Rivelli, Founder of the networking group, filled us in on the guests and their relationships with the networking group. We also touched on the Working Women Conference being held September 8th and 9th at the Straz Center. Tickets and more information is available at and learn more about their frequent events and how to get involved at!

Joining us first was Kim Nauman, Owner of the Empress Tea Room in Carrollwood. With a strong background in marketing and advertising coming from the corporate world with Shells Restaurant, Kim took the entrepreneurial dive first into the catering business by opening Divine Menus. Then in 2008 after seeing an ad during the Super Bowl, Kim and her husband bought and became the third owners of The Empress Tea Room. Specializing in events and gift sales, this niche restaurant is also one of only two locations that serve tea in the manner of the English. You can stop by for high tea at noon or any other hour of the day and experience the true “tea experience” at The Empress Tea Room. Kim and her husband now have two business lines to their day, catering and the Tea Room. Consider the Empress Tea Room for your next event (very popular for bridal showers per Kim) and learn more at!

At 8:30, we were joined by Shannon Carlton, Owner and Founder of Intentional Growth Strategies, LLC. Shannon Carlton worked for a small publication in the Brandon area for 10 years before she made a huge leap of faith and quit her job to start her own business. Her personal mission statement is to use the voice God gave her to foster relationships that encourage, inspire and change the world! Shannon transforms the way small business owners do business! This is accomplished by helping clients identify and clarify their real estate objectives and then working with them to accomplish those objectives. Additionally, she can help the small entrepreneur by providing them with an affordable workspace solution and educational opportunities for their entrepreneurial endeavors. Shannon is working to “build community” and shares with us her vision and mission and how she balances work and life as a mother of two teenage daughters.
