Without hyperbole, I’m better than LeBron James. #GraceAndHumility


LeBron James has four National Basketball Association Most Valuable Player Awards. And, until yesterday, Bron-Bron and I were tied.

    Congratulations Eric! I do learn so much from you. I often forward your posts to friends and colleagues, even though they are not employment law nerds or HR pros because your work is so readable, AND as Brooke Kozak said, entertaining. One thing about this post particularly, PROPS on the gif. Excellent job. AND, your blog does educate me. I’m pretty hip myself 😉 and I learned a new word – steez. Word.
