What I Learned This Week At ActiveRain  August 6- August 12, 2017.


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, something about Real Estate, about a place or person!  Or it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!


mike cooperAugust 6: Mike Cooper   Things I’ve Learned Along the Way

I was shaking my head yes with each one of Mike’s things he’s learned. What about you?


beth atalayAugust 7: Beth Atalay Being a REALTOR is Not Always About Making Money, but Always About Helping People.

The title says it all. I love Beth's posts and you always see her professionalism and compassion in them.

Very interesting topic and I'll be looking at Steve Buscemi in a different light.

Sharon is so creative and she also puts together great tutorials. I've used this one many times!!!

Has it been 10 years? It almost seems like a lifetime ago. Love Colleen's retrospective.

Well, we all knew that but John can speak to it from personal experience.



dianne goodeDianne Goode Slogans Are Good-Here's Why

First of all, good for Dianne for tackling this new craft, but she shows us how helpful those catchy slogans or branding names can come in handy when our minds play games with us.

What an interesting idea!!! And, I want one in our area!

Often my ah-ha moments come from what I learn about the person, and I love Myrl's post.

Sally and David take customer service to new heights. Read how they help their relocating buyers get a jump on any work that needs to be done.

lou ludwigLou Ludwig Why Not Is An Interesting Question.

All of Lou's post make us think or motivate us, and this one in particular. We're always asking Why? But what can we learn from asking Why not?



Thank you for letting me do what I love to do each day... learn something new!

Hi Kathy-Another great rounup of great reads. My fav was Myrl's. I will be doing more of that in the coming months and years. Also enjoyed Mike's and the one about not saying everything that comes to mind was my fav. Sharon gave a wonderful tutorial. Colleen's struck a chord but in a different way. I looked back on the last 10 yrs of my life. Big changes for sure but none more than the last year,
