Bye Bye Brands
Each year Wall Street 24/7 lists out what brands they expect to disappear in the coming year. We'll roll through each and give you the background story in the first segment. Is your favorite brand among them?
But Wait a Minute
We posted something about Volvo being only a memory by 2014 and our friend Josh Dreyer from Willis Auto Campus of Des Moines said, "Not so fast!". We've invited Josh into the studio to tell us why Volvo will remain a US nameplate. Join the discussion at 9:00AM.
In Des Moines, Iowa there is a rule regarding who may and who may not operate a taxi business. Many would be surprised that most of the taxi business in the city is a monopoly and quirky laws prevent outside companies from providing this service. Two weeks ago a member of our group needed a ride to the airport and at random called Cab Trans. He came up on an amazing story and we'll share it today. Our guest is Christopher A Brueggeman owner of Cab Trans. It's a great story about a start-up, what he does that is different and how his business is growing...fast.
Those stories and more coming to you LIVE at 8:45 this morning at Webcast One Live or back here later in the day.
