Second Chance Saturday: Week 133

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.

Double Feature:
YouTube Thursdays - Custom Embed Code Generators   
By Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
"This week, we received an email from a member in Active Rain. The embed code was missing from her YouTube channel. A quick check of our channel confirmed that we too were missing the embed code."


New Feature - New Feature - New Feature:
I'm thinking of adding an outside article (not AR) that caught my attention each week. What do you think? As with all Second Chance Saturday posts, if you have recommendations, I'm open to that!

The YouTube Revolution In Knowledge Transfer 
By: Samo Burjo (via Medium)
Who among us hasn't turned to YouTube to figure out how to do something or just for adding to our general knowledge? It truly is the go-to platform for knowledge on just about any subject...A-Z.

Thanks Carol Williams I do understand that manufactured housing has not always been at the forefront on the AR platform or model. However, having been a member for over a decade and meeting so many wonderful folks over the years I hardly hold getting featured or not as a motivator for my participation as you can plainly see.

This is a great group with answers for any question anyone askes and I'll aways do my best to contribute information and knowledge that I feel will benefit folks interested in my industry. Have a happy weekend.
