    2020 Outlook: The Changes to Come in the Year and Decade Ahead

    At January's luncheon, Ben Breslau, Chief Research Officer, Americas of JLL spoke about big themes impacting the commercial real estate industry in the next decade.  

    Some pearls of wisdom from Ben: 1.) Organizational agility will be a critical factor to getting ahead of the competition. 2.) Investors are increasingly concerned with the environmental and societal impact of their investing. 3.) Elements that maximize human performance and engagement (lighting, acoustics, air quality, etc.) are becoming a differentiating factor in attracting the next tenant or employee.

    Managing Wellness & Stress in the New Year

    Have you had your Vinegar Tonic or Golden Milk today? Done your walking or metta meditation? In January, the CREW Boston Entrepreneur Exchange had a really fun and interesting conversation on our own wellness tips and tricks. Unfortunately, it seems some things may only be made easier by young children growing more self-sufficient, but I certainly left with some new strategies. From meditation apps to yoga retreats, dog-walking to aerial yoga, we covered a lot of ground, recipes, and products. New Year, New You, New Shopping List?
