Good Reads for the Week
I don’t know why, but for some reason this week just seemed to fly by. Anyone else feel that way? In any case, it was another great week for reading material. I’ve put together of a list of great stuff to keep you busy over the weekend. It will certainly give you something to do while you’re not watching football. Yep, this is the first weekend since the beginning of September that there is NO football: college, pro, nothing. If you couldn’t tell, I’m not too happy about that. I guess we have the Super Bowl to look forward to next weekend, but with the Patriots out of it, who cares?
Anyway, I digress. As I was saying, we’ve got another fantastic compilation of stuff to read so get comfy and get to it. Before we get to the list, be sure to check out these posts you may have missed during the week.

Now for the list. I’m going to start with a new blog from Zach Moore. Zach recently completed an internship with Mike Robertson and Bill Hartman and is now working with them at IFAST. I don’t want to give away too many details from his story because he does a great job of it in the blog posts below, but suffice it to say that Zach is one impressive dude. Seriously impressive. I do not know Zach personally, but I took particular interest in his story because we both did internships at the same time so we have that commonality. Trust me, you want to read the two posts below. I look forward to following his blog in the future.
