I’m Thankful for ActiveRain – We The People – Day 1
Debbie Reynolds is sponsoring a 10-day Thanksgiving Post Challenge from today through Thanksgiving Day and all about why we are thankful and for what!
We are all blessed in many different ways and this is an inspiring way to share those blessing with everyone here in the Rain...oh, and get a few points while we’re at it.
No doubt many who participate in this challenge will talk about being thankful for Activerain, and I’m certainly no different. I could talk on and on about all the reasons but my focus is on how thankful I am for the people, and our community.
It is from the people that all our learning comes – the answers to questions, solutions for problems in our transactions, marketing ideas, ways to grow our business, ideas for business plans, how to improve our photos, and so much more.
That ActiveRain is a powerful, and emotional, community of people embroiled in the real estate industry is stating the obvious.
Anyone who has been here for any length of time and participates, but even more so those who have been Rainers for some time, know the power, the emotion, the empathy, and the caring spirit of this network of people.
It’s been that way ever since I joined more than 9 years ago, and while things have changed and we have grown in size, the people remain the foundation of all that makes AR the wondrous place it is.
I’m thankful for the many people I can call close friends, those I can call or email for help, an ear, or just to talk, and those who have reached out to me.
I’m thankful for the opportunity to have met so many wonderful people in person from around the country over the years (at last tally I was around 200), at meet-ups (the photo is from our AR meetup in Orlando a little over a week ago), conventions, and just because I was there, and for their inspiration, their caring, and their humanity.
I’m thankful for what I have learned about myself personally, from being part of the ActiveRain community.
And I'm thankful for the opporunities that lie ahead for meeting new people and making more friends!
