What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain- September 22 to September 28, 2013.
I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series I try to highlight one post per day that gave me that “lightbulb” moment. It could be something techie, about Real Estate, about a place or person!

September 26: Gary Waters If We Forge the “who” then the “What” May Not Matter.

If you really want to learn something today about one of our greatest authors, please read her post.
