Welcome to the 118th episode of the Inc. Uncensored podcast, hosted by Inc. editor Jim Ledbetter.

This week, senior editor Maria Aspan talks about how business owners are dealing with the massive uncertainty coming out of Washington as President Trump's campaign promises to slash business and financial regulations collides with the reality of politics. Business owners are trying to get a head of Trump's plan to cut mandatory overtime pay and financial regulations but as his plans hit obstacles business owners need to stay compliant with the current laws. Aspan explains the difficulty entrepreneurs are facing as they try to navigate the unstable and uncertain future.

Staff writer Will Yakowicz talks about how Duluth-based aircraft manufacturer Cirrus has finally released its single-engine luxury jet, the Vision Jet SF50. The Vision has been in development for 10 years and Cirrus has sunk hundreds of millions of dollars into the new aircraft. At $2 million, Cirrus hopes it can corner the "personal jet" market as the industry rebounds from post-recession lows.

Lastly, the crew interviews Brock Weatherup about how he co-found and sold PetCoach to Petco. Weatherup launched the company to create a way for pet owners to speak with licensed veterinarians online.
