At 8:00 a.m. I'm walking. And, being a Type E, I can't do just one thing at a time, so I've been thinking about how to combine the walking with something I love to do – talking to other real estate professionals, especially mentoring new agents. Then I thought, is there any way I could combine the walking and talking with some giving back to the Active Rain community?
The Lovely Wife made a good point about comments and reciprocity. When we look to AR for support and comments on our posts, we should be looking at ourselves to see if we're giving that support that we want from the community. What if I talk with Rainers while I'm walking? I might be able to share some good information with new agents, and then they would have a ready made topic for their own blog.
One thing, though, is there are not too many people you can call at 8:00 in the morning without worrying about waking them up. It was bad enough that I called Laurie Manny a few months ago and woke her early on a Sunday morning. I don't want to do that to others.
On my walks I've called a few folks who I knew were up because they had already commented or posted on AR when I checked, but maybe there's a better way.
Send me an email if you want to talk at 8:00 a.m. (eastern) on a Monday, Wednesday, or Friday morning, and I'll call you.
With 17 years of experience in this business, I have lots of information and tips I love to share. And you'll help me keep walking. Now I just have to figure out if I'm talking the walk, or walking the talk?
