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

Here is a recent contest post that I want to share.


Original content by Celeste "SALLY" Cheeseman 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.
