Pick Me Up Off the Floor- My Husband Quoted Activerain

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Beal, Inc College Station, Texas

My husband is not a realtor.  He is a retired football coach and teacher.

He does NOT get blogging.  He will come by when I am on my computer, "What are you doing

blogging?"   " Is that going to make you any money?"  Yada, Yada,  you get the drift.

I will tell him about interesting things I have learned on Activerain.  He has not been enthusiastic.

I am trying to get him to help me in real estate.  (He has taken one class and he wasn't enthusiastic

about that either).  The only thing I want him to do is prospect because he can talk to a fence post.

But I digress.  Today he told me, " Remember what you read on Activerain about credit card companies

arbitrarily raising interest rates unless you opt out.  Well, I got one today and I am opting out.  They are

not raising my interest rates to as they put it,  BE IN LINE WITH THE INDUSTRY."

There might be hope for the boy yet.

A great story Brenda, often truth is funnier than fiction.  Sign him up right now for the second class, everyone can use a good Firestarter, Rainmaker.  Tell him you have just the job for him, all he has to do is prospect prospect and prospect.  Have a great weekend.

We can only hope.


I am trying.  I think prospecting is the niche for him.


You are right.  It did save us money.

Brenda:  At least he's paying attention to the news you bring to him from Active Rain.  That credit card stuff is a mess.

LOL  Thats funny Brenda.  We all go through the 'spouse denial' I think (if they are not in the Real Estate Industry).  Glad to hear he is using some quotes.  Perhaps you are right... there may be hope for him.

I agree about credit cards and anytime a husband listens it is a red letter day.


It is easy I think when the spouse is in the same profession.
