Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-February 21 to February 27, 2021


Every day there is something new to learn here 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!


February 21: Grant Schneider Virtual Teams Will Dominate Soon

Whatever your opinion, be ready to adapt and anticipate where we are headed. A good friend who works for a big tech company has been working from home since the Pandemic and his company will probably continue to do so.


February 22: Rocky Dickerson Undervalued and Overwhelmed

Need some motivation or to motivate someone? Very inspirational post.


February 23: Lise Howe Treat Your Appliances with TLC and Save Money in the Long Run

What helpful tips Lise has shared with us. It could save you money and help keep them out of our landfills.


dick bettsFebruary 24:  Dick Betts     Remember the Corner Grocery Store?

This one brought back memories and food for thought for those who might be worried about how they’re going to compete going forward. 


Beth Atalay Does Face Yoga Really Work?

I'm trying the egg membranes! Informative and reminds us that whether our health, personal lives or work consistency helps.


Wanda Kubat-Nerdin Being Market Smarter than Clients

Great advice for new or seasoned agents!!!


February 26: Barbara Todaro Cut Corners with Coupons Not with Marketing

If you want to learn how to market and increase your brand presence, read this post and others Barbara has written.


Denise Lones Motivating Home Sellers-Opportunity Sellers vs Life-Change Sellers

Denise points out why it's a good idea to understand why your seller is selling.


February 27: Will Hamm What is your job in Real Estate?

It's a short post but makes a lot of sense. And while you're at it, wish Will a belated Happy Birthday.

Hello Kathy - in some ways, your weekly post is kind of like filling-in-the-blanks.  There are weeks when I have read and commented on each.  There are times when "hit and miss" describes my activity.  And I am thankful for those occasions when a post or a member catches me by surprise.
