Second Chance Saturday: Week 147

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.

Hi Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD 
We got some snow yesterday and it's a beautiful sunny day now. So pretty with the white hills.  The temperatures are supposed to plummet on Monday.  Stay warm and safe.

Hi Jeff Dowler, CRS 
I started SCS series on the first Saturday in 2017 (yep 3 years ago) but have missed publishing a few weeks due to vacations or illness, so the math doesn't quite work out. 

Thanks for checking in. I always appreciate it!
