An ActiveRain June Contest- A Lesson Learned

Real Estate Agent with Platinum Properties TN Broker: 208698

A Lesson I Wish I'd Learned Earlier in My Career

Lesson learnedHi Rainers...It's time for a contest that is loaded with points. This is one where we can share and learn from one another. It isn't going to be difficult unless you consider it hard to pick just one big lesson from all the lessons you have learned during your career.


The challenge is to write a post and share a lesson that you learned along the way. It may have cost you a lot of money to learn it or cost you a client or friend or you invested lots of hard work that didn't pay off. Share the details and how you could have done it differently. If you are new to real estate share a lesson you have learned in life or in another career. 


All those that write a contest post during the month of June and submit a link to their post in the comment thread below will receive 1000 bonus contest points in the month of July. The contest starts June 1 and you must post the link to your post in this blog post comment section no later than 11:59PM Pacific Daylight Time on June 30, 2016.  See how easy that is going to be?


Now to make it more interesting and to encourage quality posts, Bob is going to reward any of these contest posts that are selected as FEATURED POSTS with an additional 300 points. If you have never been featured this could be your debut. Bob Stewart is going to be on high alert ready to select some of your great posts to feature. He might even like them so much that they may be included in the Daily Drop or Tweeted, too. Anything is possible in ActiveRain. 


So put on your thinking caps and select your best lesson to share with the community. As a way for the community to see more of these posts try placing them in the ActiveRain Contest Group, too. Remember all contest points will be added to your points total in July.


Have fun and start sharing about a A Lesson I Wish I'd Learned Earlier in My Career.

We should have chosen "Don't leave things to the last minute" as our lesson we learned early on, but apparently we didn't learn it yet. Here's our (last minute) entry!
