Today a slightly different Friday Edition of the business news headlines. Sure we've got the news but then two conversations. In the first you'll hear about some critical information dealing with small businesses and the Small Business Administration. My guest is Veronica Pugin the Senior Advisor to the Office of Capital Access...think money. Then, as is always the case, Jeff Pitts is in from Cityview with "Stuff to DO" in the Greater Des Moines Metro...but, first the news:
- The Biden Vaccine Mandate and...business;
- A new CDC vaccine study is out and it's important;
- Mississippi farm workers sue their employer and why;
- Pregnant and working at Amazon;
- You would think Wells Fargo would...learn;
- The Wall Street Report;
- Say it ain't so: Facebook and Ray-Ban.
Then click through for this important conversation for small business owners/managers. Two things to do: First, if you own or manage a small business you've got to listen to this short segment about National Small Business Week and a virtual presentation starting on the 13th. And, pay close attention to the new guidelines for gaining capitol for your small business. And, second, if you know a person who owns or manages a small business send this link to them. It could make a huge difference. My guest is Veronica Pugin who is the Senior Advisor in the Office of Capital Access for the Small Business Administration. Here too is your link to the COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program that we talk about. Know there are new guidelines and an easier way in which to apply for business capital. Two things: Listen and Share!
It's the one day of the week we get Hyper-Local. Welcome to the Friday Edition with Jeff Pitts the Managing Editor of Cityview Magazine where we chat it up about "Stuff to DO" in the Greater Des Moines Metro.
On tap today we're talking the opening of Cabaret at the Des Moines Playhouse the Grand Re-Opening of Noce...think some of the best live music in the city. Of course the Downtown Farmers Market gets a shout out. A little football talk, think Iowa vs. Iowa State and it is a big deal. Meanwhile in Ottumwa the Cracktastic Plastic Event...you like comics...this is your deal. Alan Jackson is in town. The Central Library Book Sale is a happening thing. Hoyt Sherman Place has the Robert Cray Band. Valley Junction and their farmers market is a happening thing. Wilco and Trampled by Turtles at the Water Works Park on Thursday. Did we mention the Knoxville Raceway? Yes we did! Now get out there and have some fun...you deserve it!
