ShopTalk is live on Google Hangouts this morning

Join me this morning at 9 a.m. for my interview with Cathy Hackl, host of #ScopeNews and director of Periscope Community Summit, as we discuss today’s ShopTalk story about Charlotte-area small-business owners experimenting with the live-streaming app and using it in ways to promote their businesses.
