Todd Carpenter sent an update out today about REBarCamps. It made me think about how many I've been to... and how few BICs Ive seen at them! Mortgage Leaders and Real Estate Leaders who are NOT connected and don't get it are going to be left further and further behind in 2011. That's my Prediction!

Best Profiles on Activerain? What Are Your Favorites? - 12/26/10 11:44 AM
I am trying to show some examples of BEST Practices in 2011... and I've ALWAYS thought that having a well written Profile (resume in some places) is the KEY to your online presence. I can't tell you HOW MANY PEOPLE I've pointed to Jeff Dowler's Profile. When you read it... you know exactly what his next 30 or 40 blog posts need to be about. You know he's going to write about his area, about what that "life style" is like, and you know WHY all of those designations are important! I love his profile (like the way he writes too).

THIS is one challenge I can do! Yippee! See you guys on February 11th! Via Bob Stewart - ActiveRain (ActiveRain): Whether they choose to acknowledge it or not, most agents are doing a form of blogging every day. It's called email. When a client sends them a question via email, they take 10 or 15 minutes (or sometimes much longer) to respond to that person, giving them (1 comments)
4/1/2011 Loan Officer Compensation Changes - Consumer Protection Gone Wrong - 12/21/10 12:09 PM
As a long time Independant Mortgage Banker / Mortgage Broker - April Fool's Day 2011 has the potential to ROCK my world! I've survived the last few years with changes that came SPEEDING by at 2 or 3 a day, and I'm sure I'll survive the Dodd Frank Bill Changes too... but what about the Consumer? I'm an Ecnomics Junkie - and as such it is NORMAL for me to be listening to CNBC, reading Calculated Risk and following @NYTimesKrugman #inman and @AQ_MND at the same time! While I'm splintered between all of this (and because I'm in the mortgage / (10 comments)
Old School Advice on Getting The Attention You Deserve - 12/03/10 01:35 PM
This is really good for people who are just kinda' starting out and want to get more people to notice their hard work! I really like the Bad Example and the Good Example of "Friends Don't Let Friends Pay 6%" Via Joshua Harley (Fathom Realty - A Hybrid Real Estate Brokerage): Many of us have “Old School” advice drilled into us from Real Estate Agents of “yesterday” who “ALWAYS” did something besides blogging and tweeting and updating to get business. Personally, it’s easy for my eyes to glaze over when that conversation starts. BUT, there’s some WISDOM in those “Old School” suggestions when (1 comments)
