Second Chance Saturday: Week 168

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. 

Join us for the AR Zoom Meeting
Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. Eastern

This Is Why We Hoard Toilet Paper   
By: Robert Siciliano

Will My Property Taxes Go Up If I Refinance? 
By: Rob Spinosa

The Power of a High Functioning Website 
By: Rich Gaasenbeek 
92% of homebuyers use the Internet as part of their home search, and you only get one chance at a digital first impression. So if your website is representing you around the clock – are you making it count?"

I Don't Know What To Do...    
By: Michelle Spalding 
"It’s not the technical part that holds us back; there are plenty of part-time virtual geeks to help with something techie. It’s not that we’re not passionate about something or feel that our work is what we’re meant to be doing. It’s not even that we’re unsure of our skills."

I got caught by the under heavy load yesterday too many times. This morning, I'm finally in again. Now, I have your weekly collection of posts and Kathy's. That's good as it's a rainy morning - again, and I'm ready to hunker down and catch up on some reading.  Imagine your weather has been quite a bit better than ours of late. Can't wait for the sunshine to return. D
