Second Chance Saturday: Week 53

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."

-Carol Williams 


Does getting Featured here in The Rain sometimes feel like a roll of the dice? Not anymore.  I'm always open to member suggestions on posts that should be Featured but somehow got missed.  That's what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  Tag me in any posts you read that you'd like to see Featured here each week. 

I had quite a few nominations this week, so I saved some carry over to get started for next week.
