Who is JGN?
JustGOODNews.BIZ was created as an antidote to the national media’s often negative coverage of business news during the 2008-2009 recession.
Dick Rush and his wife, Kris, worked for the State Chamber of Oklahoma. As they gave speeches to local business groups and service clubs, they were struck by the difference in what national news media reported about business at the time and what they saw with their own eyes.
“We watched so many Oklahoma business leaders navigate the treacherous waters, revamp their businesses processes and collaborate with other companies in new ways,” Kris Rush said. “They worked hard to hold on to their workers while still investing in their communities, volunteering and contributing with little fanfare or recognition.
“Their stories almost never made the news. Bernie Madoff, big corporate layoffs and other disheartening stories stole the spotlight.”
As a result, Kris and Dick started JustGOODNews.BIZ, a national online news service highlighting positive business stories and opportunities, state-by-state, sector-by-sector, free-of charge.
Launched in 2013 as a part-time content creation venture, JGN became a full-time news company Jan. 1, 2015. A comprehensive news site gives companies and communities of every size a national platform to share accomplishments and success.
