Looking back a bit #1

Real Estate Agent with Wayne M Martin

A short time ago Kathy Streib challenged us to look back at some of our previous posts. Although I had been a member for some time before my first posts, I began posting in January of 2011. Seems a long time ago.

One of the first posts was the following affirmation: "Sell yourself...You are the only thing your competition cannot copy!" 

True then true today! Just pondering!

Stop by my regular posts and see how good you are with trivia. Enjoy your day.

Wayne, everyone always says we are salespeople, but the only thing we sell, is ourselves.  So agree!

Hi Wayne- I love this!   And how true is this when so often society wants us to mimick others. WE are the only ones like us and we should celebrate that.

Hello Wayne - this was an interesting tour through the Wayne Wayback Machine.  I wonder if we found your first trivia challenge post what we might discover?

Good stuff Wayne. The competition can't duplicate your sphere either, so be sure to network it and stay in touch and serve it well when you get a referral from it.

Hi, Wayne Martin 

I certainly enjoy your daily trivia post. I learn stuff every day since I rarely know the answers.
