Second Chance Saturday: Week 148

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.

Some great posts here Carol that have not been seen.  I confess, I start and stop here on the home page for AR and do not have the time to read every post by every writer!  You and Kathy are great editors and feed us 'the right stuff' just like music moguls did for years until the digital age and free stuff... but I digress.  ha!  Thanks again!

TED is one of the coolest forums in the world probably and the top 25 definitely shows it.

Hi Kathy Streib 
I hope you found some TED Talks that intriqued you. I always like Brene Brown and the one with the model intriqued me as well.  I haven't listened to them all yet.
