"People can choose between the sweet lie or
the bitter truth. I say the bitter truth, but many
don't want to hear it." ---Avigdor Lieberman
ARE YOUR UNDERPANTS BIG ENOUGH?
It takes courage to wear big panties and step outside of the norm to do something BIG! BOLD! BODATIOUS! This is a shout out to the people who started ActiveRain, to the members who joined and remained members of ActiveRain, and to the big, bold, and bodatious stories posted on the vast selctions of blog posts held together, united on ActiveRain.
Before joining AR, there wasn't anything like this platform. I'm sure I'm not the only one who was trained and learned from my Broker and local entities that taught mandatory and continuing education. It wasn't until I joined AR in the fall of 2010, that I began to realize the broader scope of the niches of real estate, the possibilities of learning something new and different, and to stick my neck out to learn about what was going on in other areas of the United States from people, like myself, who are in this profession.
UNITED WE STAND
Thanks, ActiveRain! Thanks, Members of ActiveRain! When you think about it, we have put together a collection of viable stories and reported the news in our market places with growing frequency. Through the ups and downs of what it's like in our personal market place we have stayed in place, sheltered behind our own computer devices, and on the run, reporting the news and sharing stories that are unique. Many have bared their souls in sorrowful life events, personal to them. United, we wept. Others have shared their joyful events both in business and personal stories. We celebrated success, milestones, birth, graduations, promotions, awards, adoptions, and other life events that brought tears of joy and happiness.
Our collection of personal stories read like a memoir, a history of the people within our communities and the stories about our industry. We reported the news, great ideas, tips, the processes of how things get done during both slow times and multiple offers. There were questions, answers, opinions and lots of pondering. Throughout it all, there has been stories of inspiration, education, meditation, hope, humor, and the determination about how to succeed or tolerate and get through problematic or unusual circumstances.
Never, in our history has the alarm gone off about the importance of how to survive and stay connected because of COVID-19. It has reached every corner of the world. We need ActiveRain. We need to continue to share the fabric of our souls and share what's going on in our areas where we live. ActiveRain has no borders. We can exercise free speech as long as we follow ethics and truth.
