Thursday is probably one of my favorite days of the week.  Why? Well, two reasons:

  1. It’s 50-cent wings night at a good number of bars/restaurants in Chicago.
  2. Crain’s Real Estate Reporter Dennis Rodkin joins us on the Wintrust Business Lunch!

If you can’t make it to wings, that’s okay. Dennis smooths it over by bringing us the latest and greatest real estate stories.  As you’ll hear on this episode, it’s a great time to flip your house if you reside in the Chicagoland area.  Trust us folks, you can’t find this kind of expertise on HGTV.

Then, Bill Geiger of Geiger Wealth Management joins the show with some tips on how you can plan your retirement.

Later, Ilyce Glink takes a look at location-based marketing. You know when you check-in to a location on Facebook? Well, that helps advertisers target your favorite hotspots. Ilyce talks about why geography plays a huge role in your marketing strategy. You can get more great advice from Ilyce on Monday Morning Marketing. It’s your one-stop shop for everything marketing, and you can find it on WGN Plus.

Barbara Provost, the founder of Purse Strings, wraps this one up with a discussion about how she helps women gain financial confidence. Barbara created Purse Strings after hearing stories from women who felt discriminated by the financial services industry.

We’ll have all that and more on this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!
