I missed this event - RE8EXPO - and hope to attend the one next year, if there are no scheduling conflicts for sure.
Here's something 'cool' about Ben Kinney from Sally K. & David L. Hanson in this re-blog.
It was our very great pleasure to attend Re8expo in Orland Park, Illinois yesterday. Whether you were a seasoned agent and felt like you were born in this business R newer to the real estate profession....there was something to learn. Ben Kinney's boyish good looks ....easy, conversational delivery and insightful program made the entire day program seem like a few hours. The sold out class was definetly ...."worth the price of admission !"
We spoke briefly and we know that the "Best of Active Rain" is yet to come....the electric enthusiasm with which Ben embraces our community we know will translate to a "better blogosphere" for all of the Active Rain community. He is comitted to making it the very best it can be and we in turn as many of you , are also ready, willing and able to do whatever we can to make this the best platform it can be.
Ben's program went far beyond the nuts and bolts of real estate and building your business....we got to the see the very generous and personal side of him as well. It goes along the lines of "teaching a man how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime." Ben teaches people how to give,,,,by more than just his great real life example. All of the course fees are donated to Charity....our class fees to the food bank in his home town. He gives a new meaning to "giving back." His stories meant few dry eyes in filled room....his teaching concluded with a well deserved standing ovation. You have my deepest professional respect Ben Kinney.....and more than a little piece of my heart.
Active Rain Community...you don't know how lucky you are yet....to be a part of the ever growing Kinney Company Family. WORLD...you have expereinced and continue to...the many ways Ben Kinney gives back to the world community...and we are honored to have been touched...and just beginning to learn from such a truly fine human being . Amen and Women.
