Second Chance Saturday: Week 117

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.  As you read blog posts during the week, be sure to tag me in the comment section of any post you wish to nominate as Feature-worthy.  Then watch for it in the next edition of Second Chance Saturday.

Hey Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886 
Happy Saturday! No homework, just lots of food for thought.   

Next week will be a busy golf week. I have a tournament Monday & Tuesday and Team play Thursday. Right now I'm nursing a tweaked knee, so been taking it easy this week.  I hope to be 100% by Monday.
