Know that annoying feeling when you have trouble remembering something? Well, Nelson Dellis doesn’t ever have that problem. Nelson is a 4x USA Memory Champion and one of the leading memory experts in the world. He regularly travels to compete as a Memory Athlete, Memory Consultant, and a keynote speaker. He also is an avid mountaineer and climber, and preaches a healthy lifestyle that combines both physical and mental fitness.
Deciding to make healthier habits and life changes is easy. Actually following through on them though? Not so much. Greatist knows this fact well, which is why it’s their mission to help people find out how they can make healthy choices that they love – because it’s easier to stick with things if you love them. We love their “healthy-ish” attitude because it comes across as attainable, positive, and encouraging.

Email overload is particularly painful in real estate. Being able to filter out hundreds of newsletters while not missing a new client’s email is always an issue. We interviewed some of the industry’s top leaders to find out their solutions.
LinkedIn is the most filtered email source according to our engineers at SaneBox with Twitter and Facebook following closely behind. It may seem surprising at first, but completely understandable when you remember just how many of those emails come through.
