Reach out, don't be afraid. I've had that same feeling before: You want to open the feeder lines of communication but you don't know exactly what to say; let me help you. Share an idea with me, shoot me a suggestion, tell me never to wear socks with sandals, or just tell me how improve; I welcome it all.

Sometimes I'll write about work, other times I'll write about you. Trust that I won't ever write about my time spent on the couch (reserved only for football Sundays).

The Passage of a Few People Through a Rather Brief Moment in Time

Eric Roseman

You know that exit off the highway that you would have no reason to get off or that part of the city that you only drive through on your way to your final destination? You know that corner retail lot that has the right mix of crappy fast food joints, dry cleaner, liquor store, UPS and that family business that's been around for way too long - you just can't comprehend how they're still in business? 9pm, on a nondescript Wednesday, what's happening over on that parcel?

The Russians Discover Bonobos

Eric Roseman

The next time you find yourself in Russia, don’t be shocked to see a guy in Moscow walking around in Bonobos chinos donning a pair of tefillin. In fact, an entire suitcase of North American goodies is food for feasting for some lucky guy somewhere in Moscow. While snow is par for the course in Moscow, a bomb cyclone is another type of beast. January 4th was the right wintery mix to throw everything into a whirlwind of a cyclone.

Note to My 22 Year Old Self

Eric Roseman

Preparing for your interviews your senior year at Penn State you ran through the rigor of mock interviews and scripted lines that sounded appealing to the business world. At 22, your mom handed you your 5 suits from Jos A Bank, you pick the bland one, straightened your tie that you had your fraternity brother teach you how to knot and you went to the career fair to interview as if you were on a lazy susan table. You were asked to regurgitate your back story, your school involvement and your career plan. “What’s your five year plan?” The question that we all prepared for, the question that we all have an answer for, the question that none of us truly know.

The Only Constant in Life is Change

Eric Roseman

A rowdy group of 80 Great Neck New Yorkers between the age of 21–30 getting kicked out of a Vermont hotel on New Years Eve. A bus driving through a blizzard en route to the Berkshires to find shelter. A countdown for the new year with everyone dressed in pajamas and partying in the dining room of a random hotel in North Adams, Massachussets. That’s how I spent my New Years, leading a private group on a Sourced Adventures trip. Two days later, at my primary job, our company, Floored, was acquired by the largest real estate firm in the world! How’d your 2017 start???

Ground Breakings, Hard Hat Tours, and Seeing the Sell Side

Eric Roseman

Sitting in New York dialing out to the west coast and sounding like the expert on their street names and development projects has always been a bit of a head scratcher. For the last three years I’ve run the west coast business for Floored. After getting acquired by CBRE, the largest commercial real estate firm in the world in January, the task at hand got even more complex with the gigantic network of local real estate experts out west. The new role requires a lot more broker interaction, market knowledge and a genuine hustle to get involved in the hand to hand combat of deals.  So when I asked my boss if I could do a temporary stay in Los Angeles and work from the shoreline, he was incredibly accommodating and understanding – He told me to go give it a shot!
