What I Learned This Week at ActiveRain-March 22 to March 28, 2020

 

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! 

 

gary thomasMarch 22: Gary Thomas All Quiet on the Key West Waterfront

Gary IS the local expert for Key West. Just look at his listings and "shoebox" photos. But also read his wonderful stories. This is one of them.

 

sharon taraMarch 23:  Sharon Tara     The Best Defense Against Anxiety is Action

 

I’ve known Sharon for years and she wasn’t kidding when she says she knows about anxiety. So she knows what she’s talking about. If you are anxious now, read her post. 

 

 

mike cooperMarch 24: Mike Cooper The Hidden Blessings in this Crisis

No one wants this but it is what it is. Mike shows us the lemonade he makes out of the lemons we've been handed.

 

 

katerina gassetMarch 25: Katerina Gasset How to Secure Your Business During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Katerina gives us a thorough list of what to do to protect your business!!!

 

 

wayne and jean marie zuhlMarch 26: Wayne and Jean Marie Zuhl Virtual Vacations- Spring Break during COVID-19

This is so much fun! If you're looking to "get out of town" or want a virtual vacation, this post is it!!!

 

kat palmiottiKat Palmiotti What is truly essential?

We're all learning what essential is now, aren't we? We rely so much on outside sources these days.

 

mike mccannMarch 27: Mike McCann Coffee...Why I Need it Now More Than Ever! Or Do I?

Mike shares wonderful stories with us and this is one of them. Grab a cup of coffee and relax while you read his post.

 

margaret romeMargaret Rome Calming Information About COVID-19

Margaret was a nurse in her previous life so she knows more than I would know about this. Take the time to watch her video. BTW- I see that her post was featured, however, if you missed it, please read her post.

 

debe maxwellDebe Maxwell Calming Information About COVID-19

OK, I realize the fact that some of you may not choose to watch all of the video that Margaret shared and so did Debe. So,in her reblog of Margaret's post she has shared her Cliff Notes version of the video.

 

nick vandekarMarch 28: Nick Vandekar We just held our first Virtual Open House

There's a way to get things done if you need to. I thought Nick's workaround was interesting.

 

thomas j nelsonThomas J Nelson Pause, Plan, Pivot, Proceed

Excellent advice from Thomas. And we could use these 4 P's whenever we face adversity.

 

 







Don’t forget to check out Carol Williams Second Chance Saturday posts as well!!! I always find several posts that I’ve missed.
