Business Talk for Entrepreneurs

In 2013, Jamie started a radio show called The Jamie Meloni Real Estate show which aired Mondays at Noon on Tampa Bay's 1250 WHNZ. Then on February 2nd, 2015, he launched the 5 day a week live program, That Business Show which aired for two years from 7am to 9am each morning on 1250 WHNZ. In March of 2017, the program moved to an online web based television show and new episodes aired each morning (pre-recorded) at www.ThatBusinessNetwork.Com with Thursdays being The Real Estate Edition of the program. The program was ended in October 2017 but past episodes remain online to listen to. Jamie has interviewed over 1100 different business professionals and has a vast network of contacts across Tampa Bay and the Country as a result of the radio show / podcast and his extensive success in Real Estate sales.

Advising Businesses in the Bay


At 8am, I welcomed the team of Aimee and Shelton Radebaugh and Renan Debarros. Aimee and Shelton own Lloyd’s of Shelton Auto Glass and Renan is the Vice President of Marketing. Renan shares with us the story of how he sold his auto glass company to Shelton and Aimee and was impressed with their business and stayed on as Vice President in charge of Marketing. Their business provides mobile auto glass service at your home or office and their certified technicians regularly perform services on all types of cars including domestic and foreign models as well as luxury vehicles. Lloyd’s of Shelton Auto Glass is a reliable vendor for commercial fleet vehicles, too. For companies that use heavy equipment, such as front end loaders and excavators, they can handle your glass needs as well. For people that have been around Tampa Bay for awhile, you will recall an old auto glass company that gave out free steaks when you used their service, that was Shelton’s fathers company and he explains on this segment that they had to discontinue that ad because of FDA regulations they were not expecting. As a Florida car owner with comprehensive insurance, windshield replacement is covered 100% by the insurer so if you have a knick, crack or other damage to a windshield, there is no reason not to replace it. Learn more at or give them a call today at 855-458-8490 and they come to you too for replacement!

Closing out the show today was Len Russek and Mike Ertel, business brokers now working with the Mergers and Acquisitions division here in Tampa Bay with Transworld M&A Advisors. Transworld Business Advisors LLC specializes in the sale of businesses and helps thousands of clients in buying and selling their companies with an award-winning sales force of more than 80 professionals in Florida including Broward, Duval, Hillsborough, Lee, Miami-Dade, Orange, and St. Lucie counties. The company has 110 offices worldwide with international headquarters in South Florida. According to Mike Ertel, it is estimated that the average business owner has 70 percent to 90 percent of their personal net worth tied up in or pledged to personal guarantees that support the business. Often, the quality of the business owner’s lifestyle in retirement, their capacity for charitable giving, and the size of the legacy to ultimately pass onto heirs, will be impacted for better or worse by their success in selling and transitioning the business. While most successful business owners are experts at running their own businesses, they are relative novices when it comes to selling their business, and recognize that they will likely realize a much better result if they engage a professional mergers and acquisitions advisor to assist them in this process. That’s where Mike and Len come in! They provide sellers and buyers of mid-sized, privately held businesses with the high-quality resources and sophisticated services traditionally reserved for firms valued over $100 million and will specialize in transactions among companies and business organizations or their operating units that are transferred or combined.
