Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain July 10 to July 16, 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!


Dan DeeJuly 11:  Dan Dee McGinnis   The Postage Stamp Sticks to One Thing Until Its Job is Done

An interesting analogy from Dan. You have to find what works for you.


EndreEndre Barath, Jr. Do people read your blog posts? they comment...

Do you ever wonder if people are reading your blog??? They may not comment but someone was reading Endre's.

Bob "RealMan"July 14: Bob "RealMan" Timm Taking It Too Far

Excellent post by Buzz that needs to be read!!!

Excellent points by Jan. Are you serving your clients or doing a disservice to them as well as the profession?

Hi Grant Schneider I'd heard about AirTags but don't have any. Larry could probably use some because he's always misplacing his wallet or keys. 

Hi Brian England We are!  Thank you!!! Golf, baseball and NASCAR...pretty good.
