Take less than two minutes to watch so you can be in tune with local and national trends. Your brain size will increase, and you’ll also become a more potent resource for your clients.

    One seasoned investor said to me at lunch the other day… I wonder what those new jobs consist of? Are they career-type jobs, or ones that people are taking out of desperation? Ryan, have you heard of any tools that measure this or sift out this kind of data?

      I’ve heard similar talk and I think there’s something to that. However, at the same time we do need both types of jobs. EDD posts stats from various industries. I would love to see some deeper analysis. Thanks Keith. Great blog post today too.
