Second Chance Saturday: Week 89

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. 

Giving deserving posts more exposure is what Second Chance Saturday is all about.  Be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post and watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday. 

After today, there will be a two-week intermission from SCS but keep those recommendations coming while I'm away.  I'll catch up when I return.
