Friday Wrap-Up Headline

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-up (8/3/2018)

Professional football is back! It will be a while until we get anything worthwhile to watch on TV, but just the thought of the NFL returning and fantasy football drafts on the horizon is exciting. I’ll be heading out to Miami Dolphins practice on Saturday to see quite a few of my Heitner Legal clients. I wish I had the time/energy to travel around the country like many of my agent clients, but I just can’t do it, and I have no clue how some of these guys jump from town to town on a daily basis. Sad stuff this week with former UF head coach Urban Meyer, but it goes to show you that you can’t keep anything hidden in today’s day and age.

Thanks this week goes to write my essays.

This week on Forbes:
(1) This Multimillion-Dollar Men’s Athleisure Startup Is Coming After Lululemon’s Market Share;
(2) Boom In Mobile Trivia, Led By HQ Trivia, Leads To New Sports Offering;

And as always, the weekly wrap-up:
