Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-December 20 to December 26, 2020

 

Just as everything in life changes, I’ve decided to make some changes to my weekly post. 

While I hope to continue to highlight posts that give me that lightbulb moment during the week, I’m not going to commit myself to one post per day. 

 

I learn something new every day at ActiveRain! With this series, I try to highlight posts 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! 

 

December 20: Ryne Lambert Lessons Learned From Buying My First Home

Welcome our new ActiveRain member and read his story of buying his first home.

 

December 21:  Ron and Alexandra Seigel     Monday Musings: The Power of Free Choice

I have never been a fan of people saying “I didn’t have a choice” because we always have a choice. Love this post. 

 

Corinne Borio After 3 years in Real Estate, what I wish I knew then.

Words of advice and not just for those new to Real Estate.

 

December 22:  Mike McCann  I Saw the Christmas Star...And a Tear Ran Down My Cheek. 

I hope you all were fortunate to see the Christmas Star this week.
