TGIF!  We’re giving you permission to kick off the weekend a little earlier with this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch! (Although you should probably check with your supervisor first).  Andrea Hanis of Blue Sky Innovation kicks off the show by taking a look at treadmill desks – a new way to keep your posture and stay fit in the workplace  –  if you don’t mind looking just a bit ridiculous in front of your co-workers.

Then, MarketWatch reporter Jillian Berman joins Steve to talk about why employers and policymakers are taking huge steps to help college students manage their loans.

Later, social media expert Scott Kleinberg joins Steve with the latest updates on the Consumer Electronics Show.  Scott also takes a look at Facebook’s Messenger app – which surpassed 800 million users yesterday.  That makes Facebook Messenger the quickest growing app of 2015.  Well folks, here’s our take on Facebook Messenger this week;  turn it off for the next two days,  go outside, get some fresh air, and truly enjoy your weekend.

Tom Gimbel, the Founder and CEO of LaSalle Network, wraps up the show by talking about why there’s a right way and a wrong way to apply your goals.  We’ll have all that and more on this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!
