I am a fan of Gould so you may be correct. I learn more from outside the industry than inside mainly because I consider myself a REALTOR® third after being an entrepreneur and a business person.

I am happy to take courses that don't give CE credit and even pay for some of them so long as I feel they will add to my knowledge base. In one hundred years you won't get me interested in finding out what puntuated equilibirum is... who cares?
