2017 In Closing

Well, all in all 2017 was a pretty good year for us and simply wanted to update the world on where everyone was in three categories that actually matter….

Family. Friends. Professions.

Family: All of us are doing great right now. Everyone that has kids, they’re still alive. All of us that are married, are still married. All of us that have been single, are still single and living it up.

Friends: I would say all of us definitely made some new friends this year by means of our working professions. As a privately held company we try to stick with working with clients that we actually can relate to and build a relationship with. We are a very long term company, not just a “one-pump-chump” take your money and go kind of firm, so we thrive on those relationships and most of our clients actually become our good friends.

Professions: A year like no other for just about anyone i would say. This year was booming on Wall Street as well as in the private sectors which had been a tremendously encouraging thing to see given the current state of the Government. Not, please don’t start with left wing/right wing bullshit. Simply stating the facts here, and it’s refreshing to see. There has been a sudden boom in all markets across the Country with newly acquired capital and it has turned into jobs for many individuals and i love to see that.

In closing, 2017 wasn’t a total piece of shit. But it could have been better. Very thankful for the fruits of the year, but still we could have moved bigger mountains.

Wishing everyone a safe New Years and a prosperous 2018!

Friends With Benefits

It’s pretty funny how people can perceive you personally as well as in business.

During my career I have met many individuals who simply were friendly under the notion of what they could get out of me or my firm professionally. After months and sometimes years of friendship certain things happen and you start to see the true colors of these people.

It becomes very clear when the pressure is turned up as to who is your friend, and who was simply occupying space with you to see what they could get out of you.

Personally, I prefer to work only with friends. We are a privately held firm and we need to align our cultures and beliefs with others, in order to develop that strong professional relationship.

It’s interesting how people crumble in the pressure cooker of life, and their true colors come out allowing you to see their true motivation.

To those of you that can’t handle the pressure cooker. Fuck you.
