What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-November 17 to November 23, 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!

The holidays are upon us so if you're looking for something that's tasty and guilt-free you might want to try this recipe. We're going to give it a try!!!

You don’t have to be a mother to read Amy’s post and relate to it, especially with the holidays right around the corner.

We all speak to a lot of people each day but how often do we have a true conversation with anyone?

debb janes and bernie steaNovember 21: Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD YouTube Thursdays- Live or Pre-Recorded Videos

As usual, Debb and Bernie share useful tips if you choose to utilize videos in your marketing efforts. They share this every Thursday so make sure you subscribe to their blog so you won't miss out. This particular one was interesting to me because I wasn't aware of the use of live videos.



mike mccannNovember 22: Mike McCann Coffee...A Story About How Coffee Changed My Life...Chapter Two.

I guarantee you will enjoy reading Mike's story and if you haven't read Chapter One, head there as well.


nick vandekarNovember 23: Nick Vandekar I know we are all busy, but...

Hey there, Kathy! Thank you, as always, for a stellar list! I missed a few of them and will get them read in the next day or two. Like, Kathleen Daniels, I did catch Barbara's Grain Free Pizza and have everything I need to give that a whirl this week when my son is in town from Chicago. 😃
