Insight On Business the News Hour

The Business News Headlines 26 September 2018

It was a wild day for not only business but the news cycle. Aren't you glad we don't do politics? Today we're taking a look at several big news stories from cars to the Fed. Here you go:

  • Good News is Bad News? Don't worry, we'll explain;
  • Ford to cut costs but will that cost jobs?
  • In more car news GM says goodbye to the Big Apple and hellow to Motown;
  • The Fed bumped interest rates again but what might that mean to you?
  • Wanna buy Papa John's? We know of somebody looking for partners;
  • Oh yeah...then there was Wall Street.

Those stories and today we took a trip to the Central Iowa Business Conference. Couldn't go? Not to worry we've got a taste for you here today. First up is Les McKeown who spoke about Predictable Success. How to follow a very clear road map to your ultimate goal...which is success.

Also speaking today was Curt Steinhorst the author of Can I Have Your Attention. Look we are so very time starved and so full of distraction that we've got to find systems to get away from all the noise. Here Curt gives us that formula and more. Enjoy.

Thanks for coming by!
