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. 

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.

Hi Alexandra,
I hope to get a few travel posts written this week but I also need to work on completing the Thankful Challenge.  I got a late start due to my trip, so running out of time to meet the Thanksgiving day deadline.
