Great Idea – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

When it comes to having a great idea in business, the difference between success and failure is hard to pin down till you’re one or the other.

Lisa Lloyd 'n Liz Shephard

Lisa Lloyd doesn’t have the luxury of hindsight. Lisa is an inventor. She has invented products that have made millions. And she has had days that weren’t so good. On today’s Out to Lunch Peter Ricchiuti discusses the invention business with Lisa Lloyd from the Lloyd Marketing Group.

Liz Shepherd is the founder of a business called Life City. Life City also deals in turning good ideas into reality. They help companies change – from traditional ways of doing business to green and sustainable practices that are also profitable.
