The end of summer means the beginning of a new school year. For students (and parents) that means new routines, new schedules, new friends and new challenges. I’ve always loved the fresh start aspect of that. Small businesses need the same sometimes. Your business may need a personnel change or a re-do on a marketing campaign. You may also need a fresh start on your commercial real estate financing.

Jim Thome played major league baseball for 22 years for six teams. He hit 612 home runs during his professional career and was inducted into the Hall of Fame this past Sunday. More important to me, “Jimmy” was my childhood friend in Central Illinois where we umpired Little League together and turned plenty of double plays. When I lived outside DC and Baltimore after grad school, he used to invite me to Camden Yards for games and to meet the players. I watched him take batting practice again and again and again. Much like in this touching article, I’ve always … Read More
