Weltanschauung is a weird word! I honestly had no idea of what it actually meant when I joined ActiveRain or that the document even existed! I'm guessing a lot of others didn't either - or maybe still don't! You've probably worked with many groups that had a Weltanschauung but they just didn't use that word. So here we go....let's dig in and explore what this weird word is all about!
Weltanschauung: the guiding principles and philosophy
of a community, an organization; a world view
The founders of ActiveRain were wise indeed to create the Weltanschauung Guiding Principles for the ActiveRain Community. There are 10 principles in all and each one speaks to who ActiveRain truly strives to be as a community. If you haven't read the principles yet, I highly recommend that you do so today! Today I'm going to focus on the 10th principle as it speaks to a life-long passion of mine - education.
10. ActiveRain believes that it is in the best interests of real estate professionals to build a community that is focused on educating one another. ActiveRain believes its future depends on members of all experience levels openly sharing their experiences and best practices with others in the field. This communal dialog offers a unique opportunity for professional growth and is the way to share in the dynamism and excitement that constitutes the modern real estate business.
From my very first day on ActiveRain I began a new journey - an education far beyond what I ever expected from an online community. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that other members were more than willing to share their expertise and experience with others and this has continued to this day. I just emailed a fellow member the other day and asked a few questions and he was so helpful to me!
I had no idea of what blogging meant nor did I have any idea of how to blog. Zero! But I sure learned how to blog and get ranked. Who taught me? Other ActiveRainers and ARU (ActiveRain University). There is always something new to learn! And my first place to go for real estate info, online marketing tips, SEO tips or whatever subject is on the table is - you got it - ActiveRain. We've got some of the brightest, smartest Real Estate Professionals on the planet on ActiveRain. And guess what? They're here to share their expertise and experience with you!
If you're just starting out on ActiveRain we're all here to give you a hand up!
All you need to do is ask!
Weltanschauung! Do you know what it means?
