In It For The Money – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

There are a lot of great reasons to live in New Orleans, but “making money” is not typically at the top of the list. Even though the business climate is undeniably better here now than we’ve seen in decades, money is not what drives most of us.

But of course, we can’t live without it. So thankfully there are New Orleanians who devote themselves to looking after money, and two of them are Peter’s guests today on Out to Lunch.
