Happy Friday folks!  We’ve got a great episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch that’s going ease you right into the weekend.  John Carpenter of Blue Sky Innovation kicks off the show with a look at Groupon – whose stock price hit an all-time low this week.  Also, is business hugging good for your employees?  John takes a look. Next, Tom Gimbel – the Founder and CEO of LaSalle Network talks about why competition in the office can actually make your business better.  Whether you’re an employer or employee, this is one segment that you can’t afford to miss!
