I recently announced on my Facebook the birth of our new son. It was my first post on Facebook where I was not trying to sell something in 8-9 years. The photos got a ton of engagement and as I started using Facebook more over the next couple of days that everyone interacting with the post was 40+
Everyone I know, 35 and younger, is only on Instagram/Twitter/Snapchat. I’ve found myself drifting more and more towards Linkedin. I updated my Jonathan Yale Reardon linkedin profile recently and started following thought leaders in the sales world like Todd Caponi who recently wrote The Transparency Sale & Jeremy.
Its a much more positive platform, full of information and networking to advance your career, and generally not a time suck like Facebook used to be.
Is there a better feeling than Andy experienced after getting his boys a round of beers on the rooftop? If they bottled that feeling and sold it later, it would be a million dollars.

Now onto Zion…
I first heard of him on instagram where he was showing up on @HouseOfHightlights mixtapes but it looked like he was playing against 5″10 private school kids. I considered him a great athlete, but not a skilled player.
5 minutes into his freshman year at Duke I was in awe of his size, movements, jumping ability, and all around feel for the game. I completely had to rethink how we viewed him. Last year at Duke I thought he was a sure fire #1 overall pick but I also questioned how his height and shooting would translate to the NBA.
Then I watched his preseason game vs the Chicago Bulls. He is doing the exact same stuff he did in high school and college! I guess if you’re always the biggest, fastest, and super skilled it translate well to any level. I believe Zion will average 20+ ppg the second he starts his NBA career. Super excited to watch him this season.
Last week I had a blog about all things sports for October 2019, so I thought I’d continue with music, movies, tv, entertainment ect. To read the other blog on sports im linking it here. https://yalereardon.wordpress.com/yale-reardon-state-of-usa-sports-as-of-october-2019/
The big films of 2019 have been Avengers, lion King, Toy story 4, & Hollywood with Leo/Pitt. More recently and what I just saw today (10/6/19) was JOKER. That was intense wow.
Game of thrones ended in 2019 and had an awful ending. Stranger things season 3 was a fun watch. There are so many things on all the streaming apps it’s becoming next to impossible to keep up.
For the last decade the big names have been Beyoncé, Taylor swift, Eminem, Jay Z, Kanye, John Mayer, Usher, Timberlake, and a couple other names I’m forgetting. More recently Ed Sheeran, Chance the rapper, Niki Minaj, Shawn Mendes have come on the scene. I’d argue that nobody is killing it like Sheeran right now. Easily the top song of 2019 has been Horses in the Back. Right now the #1 song in the world (10/6/19) is Truth Hurts by Lizzo. I think she’s a one but wonder.
Yale Reardon blog
I wrote a comprehensive blog of everything I can recall of what sports look like in the USA as of October 1st 2019. The idea is I can share this one day with my son.
I plan on doing the same thing for music, movies, and politics in the next few days.
