OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. Each week Peter invites guests from the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

Wherever you are right now, take a look around. There’s a fair chance that someone near you is staring at their phone. They’re not talking into it, they’re writing on it. People love writing so much they’re even texting while driving at highway speed. You’d have to really be in love with writing to risk your life for “OMG.”
Peter's guests on this edition of Out to Lunch are very connected with the current business of writing.
Geoff Parker is the author of Platform Revolution, a bestselling biz book that explains how new-economy companies like Uber and Facebook succeed. And how you can run your business using the secrets they’ve discovered.
In her blog, The Distillery, Summer Suleiman chronicles true and sometimes less than pretty stories about the not-so-glamorous world of starting your own business.
Peter, Summer, and Geoff talk about how you can build a successful business, and how you can possibly ruin your life in the process. And a couple of useful tips on how to avoid that.
