OUT TO LUNCH Business over lunch. Each week Christiaan invites guests from Acadiana's business community to join him. Beyond the foundations of the Acadiana economy - oil, cuisine, music - there is a vast network of entrepreneurs, small businesses, and even some of the country's largest companies who call Acadiana home. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the wider Acadiana business community. You can also hear the show on KRVS 88.7FM.

In Acadiana, business is a tradition and tradition is a business - often the family business. There’s a long heritage of musical families around here, dynasties of fiddlers and accordion players handing down the tools and tricks of the family trade to generation after generation. It’s one of our greatest exports. Lafayette practically pumps out ran…
 
There can be a lot of pressure to take on the family business, especially when the family name becomes synonymous with the industry they work in. Imagine what it must be like to be a Hilton or a Disney or a Manning. Everybody copes with it differently. Some embrace it. Some make their own mark on it. Some leave it all behind and do something else e…
 
We've always been told that there are only two certainties in life: death and taxes. In 21st Century America you can add one certainty: the ever changing face of healthcare. Apparently, back in the dim distant past, people used to get sick, go to a doctor, get cured, and go home. We’d pay the doctor for his or her services, and everybody would walk…
 
One of the things we’re proudest of in Acadiana is our culture. And our family. We even talk about the family relationships between our cultures as being first cousins: Cajun and Zydeco. There are similarities and notable differences between Cajun music and dance, and Zydeco music and dance. Leaving aside for the moment the intertwined Acadian and …
 
If you're like most people, you found out very early on, probably in pre-school, that things go a lot better when people like you. Nothing has much has changed since you were 4. From the factory floor, to the boardroom, to the halls of regulatory government, to million dollar marketing campaigns, being successful in commerce is very often nothing m…
 
How many thousand times have you heard someone talk about working remotely, saying, "The great thing about the internet is you can work anywhere." Well, working in the oil field brings a whole new meaning to working "remotely." It's remote alright, and it's still tech, but it's of necessity, tech Acadiana style. If you started out in the oil field …
 
If you had a dollar for every time someone on radio or TV said, “Here in Acadiana we’re known for our food,” you probably would have made about a hundred dollars this month already. You wouldn’t be as wealthy, though, if you were collecting a dollar on the sentence, “Here in Acadiana there is a sizeable segment of the population open to a medically…
 
History is a messy business. It’s full of mixed and conflicting perspectives. It’s subject to revision — for the right or wrong reasons And while it’s tempting to think of it as a collection of facts, history is really a collection of perspectives. This holds especially true for histories of people. Think about it: there are competing biographies, …
 
Oil is still big business in Acadiana, even if it’s not quite as big it used to be. The IT business is quietly growing here too, specially in Lafayette. What's interesting about both the natural resource industry and the broadband-based-business is the way they're growing beyond our borders. We're now looking at Acadiana-based oil, gas, and IT from…
 
How often is it that we aim for one career and land in another? You go to college to be a painter and you end up a graphic designer, or you study philosophy and end up a lawyer. For most of us, we're lucky if we can do work we love on nights and weekends. Finding meaning in your work and the opportunity to express yourself - and get paid - is the c…
 
Everybody likes a pretty picture, and a good cheese. Well, maybe not everybody likes cheese, but when you team it up with grapes, chocolate, and other goodies it becomes something altogether different - an edible work of art. Running a startup in any industry is building a plane in midair. You might think you know how fly, but then you hit turbulen…
 
If you don't have hours to spare in a doctor's waiting room, or you live in a remote spot of Acadiana, you're going to love the advent of Tele-Health: You can get first-class healthcare anywhere in Acadiana. Now. We’re getting a lot of what we need from the internet these days. You can pick up your iPhone, unlock it with your face, and get a month’…
 
Your grocery and drug store purchase cards allow the stores to predict when you're going to need laundry detergent and Advil, and when you don't buy it in time they send you a coupon to get you to come back in. Then there's an even more advanced (some might call it "insidious") form of Artificial Iintelligence (A.I), like Frankie Russo's. Frankie's…
 
When you’re starting a new business, every consultant will tell you, rule number one is - make sure your business solves a problem that people want solved. That last part of the sentence is considered to be vital. If you don’t have a product that people are looking for, you’ll never sell it and your business will never work. Then, of course, there’…
 
Until a few years ago, if you wanted to know what's going on in the world or in your backyard, you had to buy a newspaper. Today we primarily get our news online. In this information society we expect information to be free. That trend has led to the well-documented demise of the daily paper. Except, not here. Here in Acadiana we are in the atypica…
 
There are two ways of launching a successful business these days. One is to come up with an idea. Write a business plan. Create a pitch. Hire a pitch coach to sharpen your message. Go through a business incubator, followed by a business accelerator program. Go to friends and family for financing. Then raise investment capital, and finally become pr…
 
As humans, we have two ways to communicate. Sight and sound. We started out beating on wooden logs and scratching figures onto the walls of caves. We ve evolved to where we are today talking to a hand held device and telling it to play music or movies. The biggest part of those millions of years of artistic and technological revolution has occurred…
 
The decision to go in to business for yourself is a big one. On the one hand, you can do exactly what you want at any hour of the day without having to ask for anyone's permission. On the other hand, you're not getting paid. Aileen Bennett's two lunch guests on this edition of out to Lunch Acaiana made the decision to go into business for themselve…
 
At the end of the day, business is all about sales. You might have a revolutionary idea for a business or a product. You might even be a genius. But if you can't sell, you might as well just leave all your brilliant ideas in your desk drawer. The art of sales is a particular skill. And it doesn't come naturally to everyone. That's why Reece Theriot…
 
No matter who you are, what you do, or where you live, there's no doubt that you're looking for same thing out of life as every other human being in the world: Happiness. Happiness is the stated goal of almost every societal organization in recorded history - from ancient Hindu writings to the United States Declaration of Independence. Here in Acad…
 
Acadiana is changing. Yes, we still jealously guard our traditions and our culture, but we also embrace change. We re happy to have the fastest internet in the country. We re happy to be home to some very cool tech businesses. And we re happy to be able to go downtown to a coffee shop like Reve, which is as hip as any place in any major American Ci…
 
If you re young you might find this hard to believe, but it s only been within the last generation that we have made the link between our health and our diet. It started with the realization that inhaling cigarette smoke can cause the formation of cancerous cells in our lungs. It took quite some time for us to believe that. And, as obvious as it se…
 
There s a lot of talk these days about Artificial Intelligence. Economists and pundits are betting on who s still going to have a job in 20 years and who s going to be replaced by a robot or an algorithm. Some say the jobs most likely to disappear are taxi drivers, Uber, and truck drivers. Others say it s tax preparers and loan officers. As an illu…
 
Here's a question for you. What is Art? There are various possible answers. From the personal and pragmatic, "I know it when I see it," to the wide-ranging and ideological, "Anything that holds up a mirror to society." When we talk about art on a show that is about business, I can tell you one thing that art is not. It's not something you go into t…
 
If you'd lived in the United States in the early 1900's, you would have been part of a fierce debate about alcohol. For many years there were people in Washington DC, and all across the country, who believed that alcohol was a drug that was so bad for us, that for our own good it should be totally banned. Eventually, that argument won out. In Janua…
 
If everything worked out the way you thought it was going to, 10 or 20 years ago, what kind of a life would you be leading today? It's fascinating to ponder how different the world might be if Jeff Bezos didn't quit his job and start Amazon. Or if William Shakespeare had been content to make a living as an actor and hadn't started writing. We all c…
 
We all know about the enormous economic challenges that newspapers are facing. With access to information that's posted online almost the minute it happens, it's become more difficult to convince people that reading the news next day in print has any value. The fact is that a good journalist can frame an issue, give it context, and deliver informat…
 
You're probably familiar with the term "Art versus commerce." It's one of the concepts that we take for granted are opposites. "Good versus evil." "Communism versus capitalism." "Left versus right." The problem with lumping art versus commerce into this list is that if you are an artist, you're required to find a place where art and commerce meet, …
 
Any conversation about the global economy today is bound to include a discussion of China. Economists and pundits frequently refer to China as "the world's fastest growing economy." Or "the world's second biggest economy." The unspoken intimation in this choice of language is that we in the United States better look out - China is catching up to us…
 
You probably know the line from the 1989 movie, Field of Dreams, "If you build it they will come." Decades after the movie came out this line continues to resonate with us, because it's about faith. Faith in ourselves. In our own courage to follow our dreams. And faith in our fellow humans - that others will recognize our courage and affirm it by b…
 
Have you ever bought something on impulse? You see something you really like. You can't afford it. You know it's crazy, but you buy it anyway. Maybe you've done that with a piece of clothing. A pair of shoes. Even a car. How about a business? That's what happened to Camille Carloss. Camille's husband, Dylan, took Camille on a date to Alexander Book…
 
On this edition of Out to Lunch, Aileen Bennett sorts out the complex web of economic development organizations in Acadiana. Well, more or less. Aileen says there are so many of these business-boosting organizations that, "If I just read out a list of all the economic development and business support organizations in Acadiana and gave you a one-sen…
 
For hundreds of years, philosophers puzzled over the mind-body connection: the relationship between our physical body and the feelings, emotions, and mental abilities that define us as human beings. Eventually, philosopher Rene Descartes summed up the mind-body connection as, "I think therefore I am," which seemed like the final word on the subject…
 
Many of us aspire to a life in the arts. For evidence of that, you only have to look at the massive popularity of long-running shows like American Idol and The Voice. Apparently, competitive sketching does not make compelling viewing, so we don't see TV shows about visual artists. But there are many people who have dreams of being able to make a li…
 
The tension between town and country has been around since the Industrial Revolution. It exists in every developed nation where there are cities. The fact is, cities depend on surrounding rural regions to produce food. And rural regions depend on cities to produce manufactured goods, even as basic to their survival as tractors and shovels. But beca…
 
One of the knocks we frequently hear about being an entertainer in Acadiana, is that if you don't play Cajun or Zydeco music, you're not going to work. If it's true that the exception proves the rule, you're not going to find a bigger exception to that rule than Flip Orley. Flip doesn't play an accordion or fiddle. But he could make you play one. F…
 
In 1994, a guy called Jeff Bezos was working in banking when he decided to start up his own business, selling books online. Most people thought that was a stupid idea, for two reasons. One, nobody would want to give a total stranger their credit card number. And, two, if you wanted to buy a book, why wouldn't you just go down to the bookstore? In t…
 
You're probably familiar with the saying, "Nothing personal, it's just business." People use it as a justification for doing something that's going to advantage them, to the detriment of someone else. The underlying assumption is that wise-business-decisions and personal feelings are opposites. There's nothing more personal than taste. So, how wise…
 
The difference between men and women is a subject that s been examined from perhaps the beginning of time. Whether you believe the conversation starts with Adam and Eve, or a couple of organisms crawling out of the primordial soup, commentary about what sets genders apart is the province of everyone from archaeologists to comedians. You d be forgiv…
 
When we talk about a successful business, we usually talk about the idea behind it. We tend to do that because a single moment of inspiration is more exciting to talk about than the years of hard work it takes to build a business. But there s also another quality that s vital in making the leap from inspiration to action courage. You can have the b…
 
You re probably familiar with the saying, "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery." At the same time that saying was coined in England, here in the United States, the sentiment was quite different. In 1790 the Federal Government passed the first Copyright Act, which made imitation illegal. We re still in the process of working out exactly what…
 
You might remember a guy called Zach Barker. Zach used to be the director of the startup business incubator, Opportunity Machine. Zach had a basic business philosophy which he summed up in three words, "Get stuff done." It sounds simple. But in reality, in business, the difference between success and something less is the ability to execute. Ideas …
 
In Acadiana there are a lot of things that differentiate us from the rest of the country. The biggest of all of them is music. You can live in Kansas and learn to make a gumbo. You can live in California and row a pirogue. But there's no way in the wide world that you can convincingly play Jolie Blond on the accordion or Bosco Stomp on the fiddle, …
 
When we talk about business, we all understand that the basic objective of what we re doing is trying to make money. Implicit in this understanding is an assumption that we re trying to make money for ourselves. Or our company. But there are people who dedicate themselves, and their careers, to making money for others. Other people. Other companies…
 
Some things about life in Acadiana are unique to this part of the world. And some things we share with the rest of the world. One of those common issues, in business, is making the link between the online world and the real world. These days, over 80 of all retail purchases begin with an online search. And, you know from your own experience, almost…
 
You ve probably heard the saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade." It s meant to be motivational encouraging us to take something bad that s happened to us, and turn it into something good. Aaron Beam is the poster boy for making lemons out of lemonade. Aaron was one of the founders of a company called Health South. Health South was a h…
 
If you re in school or think back to when you were in school there are days when you wonder why you re wasting your time getting an education. On those days, when you re thinking of dropping out, some encouraging, older, person invariably tells you, "It s worth hanging in and graduating cause you never know what you might end up doing with your deg…
 
If you live in Lafayette, or you spend any time in Lafayette, you ve almost certainly been to the Saturday morning Farmer s Market. There are a few staples there people and products you know are going to be there every week. Among them is Abby Perkins. I can almost guarantee you re thinking, "Abby Perkins.... No, don t know who that is." Well, how …
 
America loves maple syrup. You can find it anywhere in the country from supermarket shelves to fast food restaurants. What America doesn t seem to know is that maple syrup has a cousin. That is better looking, richer, and better tasting. It s called cane syrup. Here in Acadiana, we know about cane syrup because we grow the sugarcane that makes it. …
