P.A.W.S. CONTEST: Life BEFORE ActiveRain...and NOW

By
Real Estate Agent with Liberty Homes RS-#62825

During the Fall Season we think of changing colors and the beauty surrounding us. The fall season is significant of those changes and it's a cooling off period from a hot summer. Just like anything else in life, I made changes in order to succeed.....and that includes being a Member and Ambassador of ActiveRain.

Do you remember what you were doing before you joined ActiveRain? What kind of marketing were you doing? Were you socializing elsewhere regarding real estate? If you've been actively blogging and commenting on ActiveRain then you KNOW how this Real Estate Network has had an impact on your whole life.

I wrote What was MY LIFE like before ActiveRain?   My prior posts about ActiveRain over the last few years were all about the business and personal successes. How I made a lot of friends and how I had closed transactions.   The successes are a given but what did I do before all this to get me to the point and time of NOW?

The theme of this contest is What Was My Life Like Before ActiveRain and Now?

***Changes occured after you started blogging here on ActiveRain. Tell us your story about what your life and business was life before ActiveRain and when summing up your entry tell us how ActiveRain has made an impact (or what you're hoping you will achieve) on your life, your business and personal relationships.

The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul was founded by me in June of 2007 to give a ‘safe haven' to those who needed a place to go when the soul got weary.

The following CONTEST RULES are simple rules for this "Life Before ActiveRain and Now" entry and you MUST FOLLOW ALL THE RULES:

  • Contest starts NOW and ends October 21, 2009, midnight ActiveRain time
  • Theme: Tell your story of what life was like before ActiveRain and sum up what it's like now. (or what you hope to achieve on this network)
  • You may submit only ONE entry and it has to be YOUR OWN CONTENT.
  • Your post must have at least ...either a picture or video for visual appearance and YOUR OWN. (if you didn't buy it, take it or have permission to use it then don't put it up)
  • Your title has to include the words Before ActiveRain and Now
  • Your tag line has to include the words  Before ActiveRain and Now Contest (look at my tags and title) 
  • Join the group Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul group and Post your entry into the   Positive Attitude for the Weary Soul group
