Second Chance Saturday: Week 131

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.

Edit, Edit, Edit: Key To A More Productive Business And Enjoyable Life 
By: Denise Lones 
"Everybody has to live within the budget of time that they are given. Unlike being able to go out there and earn more money, you just can't go out and earn more time." 

What A New Millennial Survey Teaches Us 
By: Gene Mundt, IL/WI Mortgage Originator - FHA/VA/Conv/Jumbo/Portfolio/Refi 
"What is it that Millennials feel stand in the way of their home buying dreams?"

How To Change A Bad Habit: (Hint: It's Not Willpower) 
By: Victoria Craig 
"As it turns out, willpower is far from the positive panacea we often see it as. It doesn’t always work. And what’s more, we often run out of it sooner rather than later."    

Please Slow Down! 
By: Marte Cliff 
"This message could be for those folks who barrel down the middle of our little country road, endangering dogs, calves who escape their fences, and even oncoming cars. But… those people don’t visit Active Rain, so this is a different message."    

The Right Fit For You And A Real Estate Agent At Lake Sinclair 
By: Tammy Lankford, 
"Recently a past client of Lane Realty (a retired agent) listed their home with another firm."

Pondering Nothingness 
By: Michael Jacobs 
"But nothingness is not really about nothing after all.  It's about a lot more." 

Are You Willing To Be Happy? 
By: Chris Ann Cleland 
"That's a weird question, isn't it?  Who wouldn't want to be happy?"  

Ahhh... The Curves Have It!!!
By: John Henry 
"Build a round house to beat a hurricane..."     

Note: The above post was written by John Henry in July of last year. I thought it was a great companion for his recently Featured post: The Monster Blinked: A day-by-day account of Florida's 2019 Hurricane, Dorian.    


Double Feature:
I'm a Realtor. And, I Know Stuff 
By: Mike Cooper, GRI 
"And, here's the thing, there is always a solution to every problem. It might not seem like it at the time, but you or someone you know "knows stuff."
