  • Moneyball: The Analysis of a Real Estate Agent

    January 16, 2018
    It's hard not to be romantic about baseball. The big names. The stories. Past accomplishments.

  • Keep Your Business Resolutions with brokerWOLF

    December 27, 2017
    When I think about business planning I get a similar feeling to that of making New Year’s resolutions...Just humor me for a moment.

    November 30, 2017
    I remember watching A Christmas Carol as a child and thinking, ‘How could anyone be that selfish?’ As the years go by, come Christmas time, I find myself getting lost in things that I’ve convinced myself are important. Getting out the Christmas decorations. Jamming Christmas parties into my schedule. Stressing about deciding on what junk I should…
