Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-March 28 to April 3, 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!


March 28: Dana Hollish Hill What I've learned about growing my business.

Very inspirational post from Dana. She was so lucky to have the mentors she did.


March 29: Brigita McKelvie Good Words Go A Long Way

If it works with horses, why not us!!!! Love this.


March 30: Kat Palmiotti Women's Clothing is a Pain in the ----

This will have you shaking your head in agreement and laughing out loud!


John Moran Let's Get Ready to Rumble...Not

I Love John's post...motivational and the mention of The Hunger Games.


March 31: Ed Silva     Zoom Tuesday Turned Into a Meet Up

I had not thought about it but Ed’s absolutely right. I learned a lot just listening to the discussion about appraisals and another discussion from Dorie about creative financing in Austin. 


Chris Ann Cleland Surreal Moments Brought Back to Mind

What an interesting story from Chris Ann and a lesson for all.



April 2: Erika Rae Albert The Subtle Shift in the Austin Real Estate Market

Wishing you a Happy, Happy Easter. I'm experiencing a lot of fatigue after my second Covid vaccine and will be off to bed soon. Not complaining, I'm grateful to have it.  I wanted to take a moment and wish my AR peeps a wonderful day.

Hi Debb- I did have a wonderful Easter with a small family gathering. I'm sorry to hear that you're fatigued after your second shot. I'll bet you'll be up and running soon. Happy Easter to you and Bernie, your sister and her husband, and to my football watching friend.
