June 2016 I was sitting in a meeting when someone mentioned a real estate blogging forum called 'Active Rain.' I remember questioning if I had even heard the name correctly. Seriously, what does 'Active Rain' mean, and how does it relate to real estate?
Fast forward to January 2019 - and yes, it's still called Active Rain.
Although to some of us, we affectionately simply refer to it as - 'the Rain.'
To those of us that have ever pushed a seed into the ground and awaited a sprout, we understand that a seed needs a few things before erupting through the soil. According to easyscienceforkids.com, since I prefer not to over-complicate things, "there are many things needed for growth of a plant such as water, air, nutrient, light, temperature, time and space."
Being a real estate agent requires similar ingredients for growth, but for the purpose of this post, I will simply refer to the need for water.
There is a profound benefit to continually hydrating ourselves with powerful teaching, thought provoking content and new ideas and concepts
that awaken and shake up our monotonous thinking patterns.
Active Rain is like a water cooler - and each member is a 'water provider' that is a source of hydration to the others as well as the public that is standing by in the shadows.
So, let the Rain fall upon us... Drink deeply of the knowledge, wisdom and experience that lingers here. There are some agents offering water that have been in the real estate industry for decades, and the 'water' that they offer is sure to help those tender seeds spring forth!
