Hope everyone is staying warm out there – but if it’s a bit cold where you’re at, come in from the cold for a second and tune in to this packed episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!

Matt O’Brien of The Washington Post  joins Steve to kick this one off.  They discuss the ramifications of the recent drop in the market and sinking oil prices.  Does that mean we’re headed for another recession?  Matt takes a look.

Then, BIll Geiger brings you some great advice when it comes to retirement planning.

Later, Dale Eisenberg and Charles Lynn Lowder talk about their unique veteran-to-entrepreneur program.  It’s called 1 Vet at a Time and turns our nation’s warfighters into future captains of industry.  Dale is a well-known restaurant owner in Illinois.  Charles Lowder is currently the CEO and COO of multiple successful businesses and, he’s a retired Force Reconnaissance Marine (Google that – those guys are tough!) who’s a Purple Heart and Silver Star recipient.  If you’re a veteran, or even if you just know a veteran, then you have got to catch this one.

Ilyce Glink wraps this one up with some great advice about how you should manage your personal finances when you’re considering a career transition.  As you’ll hear on this episode, managing your personal finances is a lot more complex than just setting a budget and tracking how much you spend.  Well, Ilyce breaks it all down for you with some simple and effective solutions.  All that and more on this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!
