What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-September 1 to September 7, 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! 



robert vegas bob swetzAugust 31:  Robert Vegas Bob Swetz   Vegas Bob’s Shorts Fall Down at SF Airport.

This post was suggested to me by my friend James Dray . It was posted too late for me to include it in last week’s Sunday post but hey...it’s my post and I’ll share it with you today!!!   You’ll get a good laugh out of this one.

 

joseph dominoSeptember 1: Joseph Domino Does It Have Good Internet?

Raise your hand if you remember making sure each room had a phone jack?

 

barbara todaroSeptember 2: Barbara Todaro Is Semi-Retirement The Missing Piece that Leaves Money on the Table?

At some point, you have to think about your next act. Might as well start now if you haven't already.

 

nadine larderSeptember 3: Nadine Larder Is This Mistake Hurting Your Business?

There have been many new agents I've met who place all of their branding on their Broker. Great if you'll be staying there forever or if that Broker is there forever.

 

margaret romeMargaret Rome Is This a Good Time to Try Real Estate?

We can count on Margaret to offer sage advice!!!

 

 

 

ron and alexandra seigelSeptember 4: Ron and Alexandra Seigel First Rule of Marketing: Know Your Market Inside Out!

If you don't, it's like spaghetti on the wall to see what sticks. What works for someone else, may not work for your market!

 

cate griffingSeptember 5: Cate Griffing My Favorite Paint Color Strip

Welcome Cate to ActiveRain!!! She highlighted two of my favorite greys!!! Love them.

 

kevin j mayKevin J. May Think Thin Thursday~Change the Culture, Invest in Yogurt.

If you're following Kevin's blog, especially his Think Thin Thursday series, you're missing out. There's yogurt and then there's good yogurt you should be eating.

 

marti steeleSeptember 6: Marti Steele Put Your Website Bio to Work!

Great Ah-ha moment by Marti that she shares with us. Think about how we find professionals we're looking for.

 

kelly johnstonSeptember 7: Kelly Johnston Sharpen the Axe!

Please welcome a fairly new member to ActiveRain. His post reminds me of one of my favorite stories.

 

 




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

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I would love to watch a game with your mother. Please tell her that yesterday was not a good football game for us...Texas, A&M, and KU lost. Also, Serena lost. Thankfully, my Houston Cougars and the Astros won.

Hi Kathy: I have so missed reading your column the past few months when I was not on Activerain. But now I'm back and can catch up each week with what I've been missing.

Hey Doll! Yes, busy, busy but, you know I like it that way! I just hate that I can't get back to everyone as I would like to do here in the Rain. 

And, yes, 3 points but, Cam was S L O W to start playing today. Had he started playing the first half, I think we could have won! LOL

And, I just read Carol's comment - I don't feel so badly missing these if she did too! 🤣

I apologize for not acknowledging this esteemed recognition sooner. Actually I did not understand the symbol on your 2nd comment and only saw the "Thank You."  Wandering blindly through the maze Kristin Johnston - REALTOR® gave me the direction I needed. I'm honored to be added here, thank you again Kathy!
