Second Chance Saturday: Week 141

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.   

This is going to be a Thanksgiving-themed edition of Second Chance Saturday. There were so many great entries in the November Gratitude Challenge and I just pulled out a few of the many awesome posts. I encourage you to go in and read the others.  We all have so many things to be thankful for, don't we?

For A Lifetime Of Learning 
By: Michael Jacobs 

It is not that you read a book,

pass an examination,

and finish with education. 

The whole of life,

from the moment you are born to the moment you die,

is a process of learning.

Hope you had a wonderful holiday!

Looks like some excellent reading, most of which I missed. Too busy this week with family visiting to do much online except when necessary.
