What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-September 30 to October 6, 2018.


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 or the other professions that I never knew, about a place, or about a person. Or, it could be a post that made me sit up and take notice!


john henrySeptember 30: John Henry Who may legally design (and build) a house in 50 states? Just the facts!

I had no clue about this, did you? However, just like we're always telling people not to sell or buy a house without the help of a trained professional, the same could be true here.


lisa von domekOctober 1:  Lisa Von Domek    Counting My Blessings Sunday, September 30!

If you haven’t read Lisa’s Counting my Blessings posts, they are a wonderful way to begin the week.


randal jenkinsRandal Jenkins What to Eat.

I really hope that you'll read this post. It's simple in design but the story his father tells is spot on.


jon kolskyOctober 2: Jon Kolsky It Shouldn't Take a Near Death Experience

The older we get, the more we realize that time spent on needless worry and things that don't matter is time wasted. Wonderfully motivating post.



chuck willmanOctober 3: Chuck Willman A traveler's guide to finding "home."

Oh my gosh, I love Chuck's story!! Cheers to his mother! And, be sure to read the last line. It is so true!!!


elizabeth weintraubOctober 4: Elizabeth Weintraub A System for Home Buyers to Rate Houses

If you work with buyers, here's another way to help them decide. It's pretty simple too!


robert sicilianoRobert Siciliano Check Your Free Credit Report Now.

Thank goodness for Robert's advice when it comes to our security. If you haven't checked your credit now is the time to do so.


dave martinOctober 5: Dave Martin Do Something Nice Today-It Will Make YOUR DAY!

This is a really uplifting post! But, be sure to see the great advice Dave's mother gave him!!!


scott godzykOctober 6: Scott Godzyk Is This War or a Battle? Does Anyone Win?

You wouldn't think that buying or selling a home is war, but if not handled well it very well could be.


sheri sperrySheri Sperry Something You May Not Know About My Previous Profile Pic.

If you're on the fence about changing your profile pic and want to use one you have, here's a helpful tip from Sheri. Well... we have to credit her husband Rick.


Don’t forget to check out Carol Williams  Second Chance Saturday posts as well.  I always find a post or two that I missed.

It shouldn't take a near death experience was my top post of the previous week.  It is always important to treat each day positively, since you know there will be a day where everything is no longer great.
