Okay, so if you managed to get through Friday’s super long and wordy post, this introduction is going to add onto that.
So I mentioned that all sorts of weird, almost serendipitous, events have been happening to me. (These would be all the “clicks” on that first climb on the roller coaster.)
Having speakers come into classrooms is, in my opinion, the best source of learning. The other week, Blair Brandt spoke to my leadership class. He started a company called The Next Step Realty.
It’s a brilliant concept, and one that I think a lot of us (especially seniors) would LOVE to use. Basically, if you’re graduating and moving to a new city to start a job (that’s the plan… right?), you sign up to get in contact with a broker who can help find you the perfect housing.
For example, if I move to…. um…. New York City, I can use the service to find an apartment!
It’s in a bunch of cities where a lot of new graduates will most likely end up.
New York City, Chicago, Miami, Philadelphia, Boston, Atlanta, Dallas, and even international cities.
So if you know you’re going to be moving to a new city and are freaking out about housing (seriously, I am already and I don’t even have a job!), then definitely check out the website.
I went up to Blair to talk to him about another sort of project I’m working on and we got to talking. Then we realized that we had another connection:
Blair’s in the middle…. but look who’s next to him! Kiel James Patrick!
The world is really small.
