I remember my first time like it was yesterday. Filled with excitement and unaware of the wonders this new adventure would bring, I dove right in throwing caution to the wind.

Welcome to The Wise Guise (@TheWiseGuise).
For our first post, we wanted to lay out the premise for the blog and then each share a little blurb about where we think this venture is going to go, which inevitably will differ quite a bit both from each other and from where the venture will ultimately go.

We don’t want to create another website full of people who think they have all the answers about everything from comprehensive tax reform and college football to TV quality and Kardashian cup sizes (the latter two not always being mutually exclusive). We’re not the Huffington Post. The Wise Guise is merely a place for us to post some opinions and observations, while collecting your questionable feedback. Read more
