Second Chance Saturday: Week 146

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.

Are You A Good Juggler? 
By: Jeff Dowler, CRS 
"While dropping a ball as a juggler is pretty uneventful, other than being an embarrassment, in our business dropping the ball, or choosing not to deal with an issue, could put our clients’ transaction at risk, may let someone down, or create a problem." 

2020 Housing Market - What the Experts Think and What I Think  
By: Margaret Goss 
"While there may be broad and sweeping thoughts on real estate, usually these articles are national in scope. We all know real estate is local, right?
(Carol here: This would be an excellent exercise for all agents to do for their local market).

Five Changes For A Better 2020

"Have a bad 2019? Put it behind you. It is over. It's done." 

Finding Your Bearing(s) 
"One component of my training as a Combat Engineer Our was extensive “Orienteering” (Finding our way to various checkpoints across rough country with the aid of a map and compass)."

If It Works Do More Of It 
By: Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland 
"That old saying 'if it's not broke, don't fix it' means continuing the tried and true."
