What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-August 11 to August 17, 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! 


allan rolnickAugust 11: Allan Rolnick Now We Know Why They Call It "Joy" Stick

The future is now! My nephew, from what I hear, is an "accomplished" Fortnite player and was familiar with the tournament Allan refers to. This is an interesting post on what is going on in gaming these days.

peter den boerAugust 12:  Peter den Boer    Airtable App

I love apps and this one looks like it can help keep you organized. 



margaret romeAugust 13: Margaret Rome Do You Agree?

What do you think? Do you agree???



richard zaretskyRichard Zaretsky Is Your Title Agency Really Reviewing Title? Assumptions Mean Trouble.

Definite food for thought in Richard's post.



sheri sperryAugust 14: Sheri Sperry Sellers-Are You Creating Buyer Attraction for Summer Outdoor Living?

Sheri shows us not just with her words but with her pictures!!! And you know what they say about one picture!


leanne smithAugust 15: Leanne Smith Please Help Me Win the "Musical Key" Game.

Cute and true post from Leanne. You can't tell me that you haven't played the musical key game!!


sally and david hansonAugust 16: Sally and David Hanson Limiting Beliefs ...Limit You

A wonderful reminder of a post to keep our minds open to ideas that are different from ours.


scott godzykAugust 17: Scott Godzyk Mrs. Buyer Broker is BACK and you won't believe what she is doing.

Arrogance and audacity came to mind when I read Scott's post! Have you run into anyone like this?


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


You can find previous What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain posts here.

Lottie Kendall I didn't either until I moved back to Houston. My great-nephew had his Fortnite privileges taken away from him by his parents for a few weeks because he was on it too much. He's supposed to be very good at it too!

Scott Godzyk my pleasure!
