Temporary New Management

Agents, lawyers, students, general public…I have an announcement to make. I will be absent from these parts of town for the next 11 days. Tomorrow morning I will be taking a flight to New York City, where I will remain until Sunday morning. At that time I will embark to Israel on a 10 day Birthright trip. I will be coming back to the United States around May 24th.

In my absence, the extremely bright and handsome contributors of I Want to be a Sports Agent will be running the show around here. Make sure to continue to come by in order to get a read of some of the great posts that they intend to provide. Also, if you have not subscribed to the blog, I am not sure what you are waiting for. It is an easy way to get automatic updates when a new post is made. Just click on RSS on the top menu or scroll to the very bottom of the page and click on the button that displays the number of current subscribers.

I hope that I come back with some great stories!
