Why Real Estate Question

What are the BEST and WORST answers that you've come across?

Networking Dilemma

I've been networking my ass off recently and fortunately have been getting a good response rate. The unfortunate part is that many times the other person gives me a time at which it's not possible for me to have a call with him/her.

Too many goals in life

Hello, forum of Type-A's. I'm falling into that horrible rut of having too many goals in life (as I'm sure many of you have experienced one time or another).

Advice from a seasoned equity analyst

So, I used this website years ago when I was getting into equity research. 7 years on and now considering the buyside, I thought it would helpful to share my experience and advice as this website at the time was very useful in the early years of my career.

Go get somebody pregnant

I was listening to a previous episode of the Content Warfare Podcast when Ryan Hanley mentioned that he's about to have a kid and how that milestone was changing his approach to business.

A banking primer

Value investors come in two types, the ones who will look at financials, and the ones who won't. If banking is your forte I would encourage you to read the paragraph on my approach then come back for my next post.

Monday Therapy

My boss is worse than a jealous girlfriend.
