Second Second Chance Saturday: Week 251

By
Education & Training with Although I'm retired, I love sharing my knowledge and learning from other real estate industry professionals.

"Sometimes you deserve a second chance, not because you weren't fabulous the first time but because the timing and circumstances weren't quite right. You just got overlooked."
-Carol Williams  

I'm on another road trip, so not sure about the fate of Second Chance Saturday for the next few weeks. Let me just say, my intentions are honorable at this point, so we'll see if I can keep up.

I am currently in Henderson, Nevada, a Las Vegas suburb. I'm excited to meet Rocky Dickerson and Ray and Debe Maxwell, CRS for dinner Saturday night. If you've been following my travels, you know I've already been to Boise, Salt Lake City, and the infamous Nerdin Gardens.

Sunday I will be heading for a few days in Phoenix, but I will make a stop in Kingman, Arizona to meet up with Leanne Smith

Hi Aura Alex 
Yes, thanks for offering. I am always looking for posts that are worthy of a Second Chance to get Featured. If you see any posts you feel are Feature worthy (but didn't get featured) please send me a link and I'll queue it up for the next edition. That was always the intent when I started this series... for other members to offer recommendations for me to share. Unfortunately, not many people do so thanks for keeping your eyes open for them.

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat 
Thanks, as always for checking in on last week's selections. It's been a whirlwind since I left home on the 8th. I'm in Phoenix now and we plan to keep it low-key and flexible.

Hi Ed Silva 
I don't really know yet. This trip was planned as far as Phoenix. Now I'm flying by the seat of my pants. I just know I need to be home by mid-July. 😎
