Hey, it’s me again. By now most of you know that I like to read. It’s my passion.

As you know there are lots of good quality commentary and insightful articles that are overlooked by most of us. But for every good blog post or news article there are many, many more that are not.

My hope is that you will allow me once a month to be your filter. I promise that the articles that I suggest will be worthy of your time and effort.

In keeping with my blog posts, they will generally be in the areas of interest that my readers have come to expect from me:

  • Commercial real estate
  • Business & banking
  • The economy
  • The stock market
  • Personal finance
  • Technology

This past month I’ve been searching the internet for the best articles to share with my readers and I believe I have five really good pieces for you to read that are both interesting and informative. Happy reading!
