Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain November 13 to November 19, 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!


KatNovember 15: Kat Palmiotti Thanksgiving Gratitude: Opportunity

What an inspiring post from Kat. Opportunity knocked and the rest is history...and still going.


GrantGrant Schneider Gratitude Post-My Communities

I've had the pleasure of meeting Grant so I could not imagine him not fitting in any community. Be sure to read the story he shared.


BrianNovember 16: Brian England Grateful For God

I love Brian's faith and devotion. It is something we need so much of.


KhashKhash Saghafi How I Lowered My Cholesterol

Welcome back, Khash. Two things...I am not a huge lover of videos unless they're short, but I watched the whole video! Second...Khash's enthusiasm for this subject reaches right through the screen.



GeorgeNovember 17: George Souto    My Gratitude for My Parents and the Sacrifices They Made

What a wonderful post by George. This is what parents do for their families. 


MarteMarte Cliff How not to receive honest feedback...

We all know how frustrating it is to want to provide true feedback but there is no avenue! Good reminder, Marte.

My sentiments exactly. I can remember even as a little girl thinking how lucky I was to have been born here.


JoanNovember 19: Joan Cox A Florida ActiveRain Meetup

Proof that there's more to this community than blogging. Relationships that lead to referrals and new friends.
