The Business News Headlines 10 August 2021

Leading off the business news headlines today is a story about COVID and...Disney. And, later, for the interview, you'll meet franchise attorney Rush Nigut and his non-legal business of baseball equipment. It's a great story but first the news:

  • The COVID concerns for Disney;
  • The USPS to announce holiday rate increases;
  • Hey, it really IS "Infrastructure Week";
  • So, what is in the bill? We'll share the numbers;
  • The Wall Street Report;
  • COVID cases rising in Texas & Florida.

Then a conversation with Rush Nigut about franchise law but then we quickly pivot to baseball and how that sport is channeled into his DNA...it's a family thing. His love of the game led him to Victory Mounds a business that ships baseball equipment all across the nation.  It's a good story and you can get there by clicking here.
