Hire character. Train skill.

Welcome back to the Wintrust Business Lunch! Let’s get right into it, shall we? Personal finance expert Terry Savage starts the show to take a look at what’s really behind the plunging markets and oil prices. It’s been a tough start for investors this year but Terry’s got some advice that will put the odds back in your favor.
Next, social media expert Scott Kleinberg joins Steve to discuss why Facebook and Nielsen are working together to determine the best television ratings through social media. Boy, I hope people are talking about Halt and Catch Fire – the first season is on Netflix, go see if if you haven’t already. Scott also talks about another big partnership; in case you haven’t heard, Spotify and Starbucks are getting together to help you identify the playlist at your local coffee cafe. If we’re talking about the Starbucks next to where I live then that means a whole lot of jazz music.
Matt McFarland, the Editor of Innovations at The Washington Post, wraps this one up by breaking down the future of rear-view mirrors. According to Matt, rear-view and side-view mirrors are likely to go digital in the coming years. It’s like having another computer in your car – you know, on top of your GPS , seat warmers, and everything else you can fit inside of an automobile. We’ll have all that and more on this episode of the Wintrust Business Lunch!
