Video, Business, Tero International and Kyle Plummer

If you've been with the Business News Hour for the past dozen years you know we love to put up some video. We believe it adds to the engagement level and it's good for business. That's the feeling of the people behind Tero International an organization that, according to our guest Kyle Plummer, provides their clients with "confidence". Here Kyle talks about video, video production and their brand new video production studio. It's really amazing and yes...we have video. Should your company get into video?  We think it's a great idea...even if you start small which is what Tero did originally...

Just How Do Successful Entrepreneurs Think with Jason Feifer

Early this morning I got to welcome Jason Feifer the Editor in Chief of Entrepreneur Magazine to Iowa. He was in the Des Moines Metro to headline a breakfast meeting with the Greater Des Moines Partnership and then off for CI-Week with our friend Tony Paustian of DMACC-West. His topic this morning was "How Do Successful Entrepreneurs Think". Before he took the mic he sat down behind our mic and talked about change.
