What I learned in school today

Real Estate Agent with Realty One Group # S.0190863

Today, I missed our weekly Active Rain chat. Instead, I went on a road trip. I drove to Kingman, Arizona (about an hour and 40 minutes from my home) and spoke with some wonderful folks at the KGVAR offices. Basically, I was covering how to make your own videos and use the tools. We covered much of what we discussed on our Active Rain talk about 6 or 8 weeks ago. Dos and don'ts, tools to use, how to have the greatest impact - and we even shot some live video segments.


However, I feel I may have learned more than I "taught". What great agents, what great minds. Many of the agents were new to the business and yet they were highly intelligent and enthusiastic. Hopefully many of them will end up joining us here in the Rain.  And a special thanks to Leanne Smith for the invitation to join these folks today. Sometime just hanging out with wonderful folks like these just energizes us and brings a heightened enthusiasm.

Hi Rocky - I loved Leanne Smith 's presentation.  Makes me want to go.  When I was at a conference in Vegas I drove to Arizona, Grand Canyon.

Well Grant Schneider Rocky Dickerson's presentation was far better than mine.  The four hours flew by.

Good morning Rocky. Sometimes you learn more by teaching. Funny how that works. Enjoy your day.

So true about learning more by teaching because all participants are different and bring unique experiences into the conversation. Rocky Dickerson was outstanding in answering all questions.

It sounds like you were doing some recruiting for the Rain?  I hope that some of them will join and will interact with us.

Hello Rocky - teaching, demonstrating or mentoring can be very educational.  It's often one of the best lessons the person providing that service will ever learn.

Hi Rocky,
I wish I could have been at your presentation but, as it was, I also missed the Zoom meeting yesterday. I was at our season-end team golf event.
