What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-May 5 to May 11, 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!


barbara todaroMay 5: Barbara Todaro Be Visible to be Remembered|Online and Most Importantly Offline

This reminds me of the saying Out of sight, out of mind. And it's so true.


grant greeneMay 6: Grant Greene Keep It Basic

Looking at a way to grow and maintain your business. As they say, go back to the basics.


robert sicilianoMay 7: Robert Siciliano The Surveillance Seller: The Latest Concern for RE Buyers and Agents.

More and more homes have some kind of surveillance cameras. And, it's not just the cameras we need to watch out for.


paul s hendersonMay 8: Paul S Henderson Never Tell Me the Sky...

Ah-ha moments can be of varying lengths. Need a motivational boost?



ron and alexandra seigelMay 9:  Ron and Alexandra Seigel   Real Estate Marketing: Advertising As Theater-Are You Buying Tickets?

This is interesting and timely. What do you think???


beth atalayBeth Atalay If Only...Stop the Clock...Turn Off the Noise

This is an example of what often happens here at ActiveRain...a post begets another post! And Beth has given us so much to ponder (there Michael Jacobs !)


john henryMay 10: John Henry Flip Flop Friday: The Digital Truth is Out There

John continues to share his thoughts on subjects and in turn, they cause us to think as well.


marte cliffMay 11: Marte Cliff I didn't do it! Really, it wasn't me.

Another reminder to watch what you say when you answer the phone. I don't know who we handle this one!

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

Thank you for letting me do what I love doing...learn something new and interesting every day!
