Today I am celebrating a milestone. I have earned over 100,000 points here on ActiveRain writing as a representative of my business and services through Chicago Bancorp ... and promoter of my industry and geographical area!
When I first started out here on the Rain, I thought those members with this number of points must be superhuman. I just couldn't imagine having that much to offer or say ... or posting and being rewarded with those types of numbers.
The possibility of other Rainmakers writing me back and being able to establish and grow the remarkable relationships I have to this date? Unimaginable!!
I now know though, that 100,000 (although a huge milestone for me) ... is just a beginning. In comparison to other Rainmakers here, I am still a novice ... and I still have much to learn. But, the excitement, anticipation, and success I feel is possible here on the Rain is endless. My participation has already helped me so much. What awaits me can only be better!
Although I am definitely celebrating my small success here today, there is much serious Rain business for me to still accomplish in the future. There are people I have to yet meet and grow relationships with through the benefits I enjoy on the Rain. Information and opinions to gather, share, and discuss with other great Rainmakers. And ... articles to read, write, and post on the Rain.
So put on your "Rain" hats and boots, slip into your waders and raincoats, and grab your umbrella! Join me and help me in my celebration today! Let's do a "Happy Dance" together!
100,000 Points in the Rain ... and growing! Later, I'll get back to work!!
Thank you all ... Gene
