Thanksgiving Reflection on Activerain in Black & White

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Missy Caulk TEAM

There is so much to be thankful for this year, it is hard to know where to start. So grab a cup of coffee and watch this Smilebox I made for all my Activerain friends here.

Last year, I set a goal to meet 100 members of Activerain in person. Well, I far succeeded that goal. It was some of the highlights of the year for me to meet people at Inman Connect, Re-Bar Camp, KW Family Reunion and NAR in Orlando.

I wonder if Jon Washburn the founder of Activeran has any clue what he created here?

The relationships and friendships are fantastic.


When you meet people there is such a connection, it is as if they were old college friends you hadn't see in years. If I have ommitted one, I apologize as there was no way to include everyone, and some when the show were missing were not there, as I must have not brought them in.

Do your best to put back "conference money"in 2009. It will be so worth it to connect with computer friends face to face. Almost everyone included I have met face to face, or on the phone or connected in a meaningful way through in our blogs.

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

I LOVED looking at all the photos and would really like to meet many of the people on the show. There are so many that we feel as if we already know from the wonderful connections we have made over the past couple years.

I feel very honored to have been included in your group of friends. Maybe next year, I'll be able to attend an event to meet some of those folks.

Missy- Happy thanksgiving to you and yours....that was a beautiful show you made.  And having met some AR Members in person, it is really a wonderful place Jon and Matt made :)  I enjoyed watching this and remembering some of the posts on the various activities.  I also remember you being the person I always looked for on my earliest blogs....they never felt complete until after you visited them.......we've come such a long way :)  Happy Holidays to you.

Hi Missy,

I think your goal was to meet 100 Activerain members by the end of the year! By golly I bet you've met that many and more.  Great tribute to some of the regulars!
