Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-November 28 to December 4, 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!

JanNovember 28: Jan Green Don't Think Why But Why Not!
Love this post by Jan. It applies to life and to business!!!

SamNovember 29: Sam Thomas Only Your Clothes, Shoes & $20

I bet every parent here can relate to this!!! An eye-opener.


WandaNovember 30: Wanda Kubat-Nerdin    Nerdin Gardens: They Arose to the Occasion
Wanda has given us another beautifully illustrated analogy to real estate!!!

Ron and AlexandraRon and Alexandra Seigel Time for the Beach: The Luxury of Slowing Down
Imagine how much we miss in the life going on around us when we are doing the iPhone prayer.

GaryDecember 2: Gary Thomas Key West Real Estate Throwback Thursday No. 36

Gary has a treasure chest of memories of Key West and this story is worth reading. Having lived in FL, I can relate to many the egret and other creatures.

MikeDecember 3: Mike McCann There's Tons of Business on the Backroads. Have You Been There Lately?

Carol Williams wow you are early!!!! I've been decorating (and watching football) so got on late today. 

Grant Schneider you have to, especially in Florida. The iguanas were bad when we were there. When we were on the water, there was one on our dock that was at least 2 or 3 feet long.
