What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-February 3 to February 9, 2019


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!


myrl jeffcoatFebruary 3: Myrl Jeffcoat Working With the Difficult Ones

We all have had them no matter what type of work we're in. Myrl offers some excellent workarounds (for you Michael Jacobs )


beth atalayFebruary 4: Beth Atalay Natural Remedies for Coughs

Write these down because you know you're going to have a cough this season!!! I'm opting for the one that doesn't involve onions!



ron and Alexandra seigelFebruary 5: Ron and Alexandra Seigel     Our Daily Mission is: Being the Rainbow in Someone’s Cloud

Not only do I love the quote but Ron and Alexandra are excellent examples of making a daily habit of being thoughtful and giving to those around them.

Seriously, folks, you can't make this stuff up!!!



joyce marshFebruary 6: Joyce Marsh The Solicitor Said "Take It As a Compliment."

You have to hand it to this phone solicitor! I might have signed up just because of his line!!!


margaret romeFebruary 7: Margaret Rome Blogging One Day at a Time

We all started somewhere. Some of us lurked and others jumped right in. How was your start?

kevin j mayFebruary 8: Kevin J May I'm Just a Kid Don't Make Me Feel Like a Man-Realty Life

If you've worked in a family owned business, I'll bet you can relate to this!


joe pryorFebruary 9: Joe Pryor A Real Estate Sale I Loved That I Didn't Make

We're all human and sometimes our caring for the well -being of someone else can cause us to say or do something that we ordinarily wouldn't. Read Joe's post...it's a story we can all relate to.

This says it all about the generosity of someone who is always sharing how to market like you mean it.

Hi Wayne Martin probably where I was...running around madly. 

Donald Urschalitz not quite but getting there. We asked ourselves what we were doing here after the cold weather this week. 

Gabe Sanders it was tempting to take a week off but I couldn't do it.

Sally K. & David L. Hanson tell Dini that the posts will have a Texas twang to them. 

Joe Pryor loved your story. Glad to be back in the south and middle part of the country. We're also like the central time zone.
