Second Chance Saturday: Week 182

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.   

This week's Second Chance Saturday is going to be a little different in that it is one-themed. It's going to be a bit of an ActiveRain Thanksgiving week lovefest.  Other than Lou's featured post, every other post will be from the Thankful portion of Jeff Dowler's November 2020 Thankful Challenge.

Hi Dorie Dillard CRS GRI ABR 
Thank YOU for the post. Sometimes disruption is a good thing to stir things up a bit. It's easy to get caught up in doing things the same old way.

Hi Brian England 
I tricked you with two posts yesterday.  I had to get the first of my gratitude posts done for the Challenge so I could finish by the end of the month.  LOL

Thx for the mention on my zoom call. It would be great if you could correct the topic.  I will not be discussing SEO or branding.  I will be discussing how to monetize your blog for extra income and/or for an eventual exit strategy. I will share how I earn over $20,000 a month from my blog.
