Welcome to Palm Harbor Local! I'm your host, Florida native and Real Estate Ninja, Donnie Hathaway. I am excited to introduce you to your favorite local businesses and maybe even inspire you to achieve your dreams. I'm a big believer supporting small business owners because they have created some awesome products or businesses and let's be honest, they are really great people too. My mission to help the small business owners get the love they deserve and for you to get the chance to meet them. Learn about their dreams, struggles, and what they enjoy doing when they are not running the business. I think you will begin to see that they are just like everyone else and the only difference is they decided to feel the fear of starting a business and do it anyway.

Cameron Capri – Q Southern BBQQ Southern is a family friendly BBQ restaurant located in Dunedin, FL. Cameron is committed to serving the best barbeque in Tampa Bay and has spent the last 10+ years studying, learning, and mastering his craft. In this episode we talk about how the popularity of barbeque has increased in recent years. Instead of only being able to get some good barbeque on the side of the road on the weekends, you now have restaurants like Q Southern BBQ where you can get your barbeque fix any day of the week. What amazes me is the amount of time the Cameron has put into his craft and lot of it is trial and error until you find something that works. That same persistence is a big part of what helped get Cameron through his first year in business while having to shut down because of the pandemic.
