Atlanta has one of the highest eviction rates in the country. According to Apartment List, the city ranks third in the nation — with a nearly 6% rise in evictions between 2015 and 2017. 

Earlier this month, On Second Thought spoke with Brooke Gladstone about a reporting series NPR's On The Media created with the Eviction Lab at Princeton. Our conversationon the series called, "The Scarlet E: Unmasking America's Eviction Crisis" garnered a lot of feedback from listeners so we decided to do a follow up, while getting a landlord's perspective.  

 


We invited Marjy Stagmeire, president of of T.I. Asset Management, to discuss the difficulties landlord's experience. 

The idiom, "jack of all trades, master of none," has been a long standing driver of specialization. Success coaches have long preached the idea that specialization is the key to a prosperous career. Zigzaggers and late bloomers should take note that the numbers suggest otherwise.
