High Hopes

Two Lessons from Bruce for Young Brokers

Bruce Springsteen has been been in the press the last few weeks, promoting his new album, High Hopes.  He has been interviewed by Rolling StoneNPR, and appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" as both the couch and musical guest.  He even played a third song that Fallon released as an online exclusive and did a Born To Run parody that's gone viral. After the public appearances died down, and before his upcoming shows in South Africa, Bruce stopped by the Light of Day benefit concert in Asbury Park last weekend.  It wasn't completely unexpected. Bruce has played this benefit many times in the past with his friend, Joe Grushecky.

High Hopes

Many of you may have looked at the title and assumed this is a review of Bruce Springsteen's album of the same name.  For this week, I will leave the reviews to others.  Rather, this blog post will focus on my goals for 2014, a year for which I have many high hopes. 1. Move the Needle - We exclusively represent almost 2.5m square feet of Class A & B office space in the New Jersey market.  My goal for 2014 is to significantly move the occupancy needle within our portfolio.  How will I accomplish this?  See numbers 2 & 3.
