15,000 Points and Climbing OR “If Only…”

Services for Real Estate Pros with Agent Assistant Network

Back on 09/21/08 (over a year ago) I posted a lengthy blog post called 10,000 Points and the Company You Keep.  As I said in that post,

"I don't ‘blog for points' per se, but I do use points as a measurement to see if I'm doing everything I can to grow my business and stay within my budget.  Blogging and networking on AR is one of the most fun and low cost ways I've found to grow my VA business."

At the time, I made that post "Members Only".  I have no idea why.  It's a great post and gives a shout out to lots of great people.  That post is now public.  The most likely reason, I was simply in a different place at that time, and was probably a little self-conscious.

As you know from Me and My Life - One Year Later, a lot has changed for me in the past year or so.  I'm trying not to be so self-conscious about things, especially myself, and I want to do a better job of giving shout outs (including to myself every now and then).

So last night I finally hit 15,000 points.  And for a moment I started to get down on myself, thinking about where I could be ‘if only, if only...blah, blah, blah'  Thankfully, I stopped myself pretty quickly.  I don't know anything about "if only", all I know is now and that I want to go forward.  Chin up!

So I'm proud of my 15,000 points.  And I'm going to give myself a little credit. YAY me!

Thanks to AR and to all the AR family out there.  The tools and the community are a great way to grow, learn and share, for my business and myself.

Good job sticking with it. There was a time when I was fixated on points, now it is the goal rather than the means! Success!
