Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain July 3 to July 9, 2022


Every day there is something 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!


Sylvia "Elsie"July 3: Sylvia "Elsie" Foster Bird's Eye View

As they say...never a dull moment!!! Can you imagine this happening on one of your listings?


DougJuly 4: Doug Dawes Courage to Pursue Freedom

I hope that you'll read Doug's post. The signers of the Declaration did much more than just put their signature on a piece of paper.



MimiJuly 5:  Mimi Foster    Pikes Peak Cog Railway

I loved the information that Mimi provided on the Cog Railway. It’s also an excellent local post sharing Mimi’s personal tips for making it a fun visit.


GrantGrant Schneider I Hope Won't Have to Change

Well, you may have to unless you want to be left behind.

What can I informed, especially if you're working with clients who are interested in solar panels.


JimJim Paulson 2023 ActiveRain Point Store Beta- You Too Can Buy a Clue!

Love the creativity in Jim's post!!!! Like I told Jim, I'd give away all of my points if it meant fixing stupid!
