A Radio Show and A Snip The Rome Way

There is a contest, sponsored by ActiveRain, asking us to share 2 tools or systems we really love. We cannot choose our smart phones and are asked to dig deeper and pick an app, tech tool, system or program that enhances the way we do business.

I have chosen to write about a very simple tech tool that I use daily and to tell you more about my live radio show which I have been doing for three years, how I started and how much it has helped me enjoy the business and share this wonderful life of real estate.  

They both make me more efficient and have made me love real estate even more.

For me, each day is a new day to look forward to...who will I meet, who will I talk to, what will I learn and how can I make this industry better.

My first one is just call 'snipping tool'. So simple and so easy to use!

 

Started using  SNIPPING TOOL last year...it is a free tool right on my PC.

I use it all the time and keep finding new ways  that are helpful in my daily real estate practice and for making graphics for my blogging habit.

 

Snipping Tool 

 

 

Here is a  "snip" of my weekly ad.

I can easily "snip"  one item or one property or even my radio show.. like these snips, below, taken from above.

 

3 snips 

Writing a blog every day, I enjoy creating my own collages, photos and graphics.  Needing these images and visuals ...this tool, for me, is perfect. So many uses for this very simple program... I continue to find new ideas every day.

My second choice for the contest is obviously my live radio show. I have been hosting every Sunday for the past three years. 

When I first started in real estate, over 25 years ago, I was fascinated by listening to ALL ABOUT REAL ESTATE, a live weekly  show.

I would call in to talk about the real estate topic. Before long I was an occasional  guest on the show.  Then I made the host, Terry Stafford,  aware that if she ever wanted a Sunday off, for a special occasion or a holiday, I  would make my myself available to be 'on call' for any Sunday at noon.

That's how I became a back up host. When Terry decided, after 20 years, to give up the show...she thought of me. 

AND...

 

This is what I love doing every week.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, Broker, Tacoma Washington No experience other than talking on the phone. And it shows by the "ums" and the "you knows"

Maybe it is time for me to go get some experience.

Just found out about the Snipping Tool from this contest. I now have it on my desktop, but haven't had the time to play. Sharon Tara I think was the one that mentioned it, but gosh, I'm not sure! When I hear of two people in AR that recommend something, I am all over it! 

Gotta play with it when the time comes. May need to tap your brain about it. And of COURSE, the radio show--a no-brainer!

I recently learned about the snipping tool from a post written for the same challenge. It was Belinda Spillman who first told me about it. I LOVE it! How did I not know about this before now?????

This snip tool could become a daily tool for my business.  Right now I'm taking screenshots and cropping or using different app to make graphics.  Much more work :-(    Thanks for sharing.

Love those daily snips! What a time saver, better than screen shots, in my opinion, because you can immediately paste the snip into your notes or a doc. Thanks for sharing, Margaret.
