June Challenge: Rising Above the Pandemic

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.


"Great minds rise above misfortune.


Anna Banana Kruchten Arizona's Top Banana! and I are co-hosting  a fun challenge for June.

If you're anything like us, you're sick and tired of all the COVID this and COVID that.  It's time to look ahead and create a positive spin on where this can take us. 

You can use this giant opportunity to take your life and business to new and improved places. We must find ways to take advantage of our changing times. If we don't, it could work against us.   Make it work for you.


What Anna and I are challenging you to do this month is look into YOUR future and how you can use this time in history to improve your business and/or your personal life.  What positive changes do you see that you can make in the way you do business and/or live your life going forward?

For those of us who are retired, it will be more about our personal life. For those of you who are still actively working, it could be both or you can focus on one or the other.

Let's have some fun and be creative with the possibilities. It is up to us to turn the challenge into triumph... and have fun doing it.

How will you rise above the pandemic and come out on top?


1500 Points will be awarded if you follow the rules...

RULES:
1. Have fun with your predictions and forecasts.
2. Your post needs to be at least 300 words.
3. Include at least 1 photo or graphic or video
4. The Challenge ends on June 30th at 11:59 PM PDT
5. Post a working link to your original post in the comment section below

Hi Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty 
Thanks for the entry into the Challenge.  Technology has played a huge role in allowing business to go on and for us to stay connected to each other, hasn't it?  I still love Zoom calls. Honestly, I'd much rather do that than talk on the phone.   Stay well!

Hi Chris Ivy 
Congratulations on entering your first Challenge. I think we're all winners in navigating the last few months.  We have a new Challenge nearly every month, so watch for that on the first of each month.

Hi Jeffrey Richman very interesting business model.  You are kicking it! Way to cruize through the pandemic stuff with a clear goal in mind.  And, I hear you on the brick wall....what is the point. Always seems like a waste of time to me as well.

 

Great entry into the June Contest - thanks!  You had plenty of time to spare too!

One of the other things I learned this year was to keep trying to find work-arounds until your post finally 'takes' on ActiveRain. LOL Thanks so much for hosting this Contest.
