Posts Just For You- This Week at ActiveRain-April 24 to April 30, 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!


SharonApril 24: Sharon Tara What Does ActiveRain Mean to Me? More Thank I Can Say.

Sharon's post reminded me of two much I've missed the old "Be the Star in Your Own Movie Challenge" and how great she is at putting our heads on other bodies.


Fred Griffin Florida Real Estate, Licensed Florida Real Estate Broker (Fred Griffin Real Estate)April 25: Fred Griffin New Laptop Computer (Question in the Q&A)

There's a lot of information in this Q&A if you are thinking of a new laptop or want to add software.


GrantApril 26:  Grant Schneider    Networking is a Strategy

This is how it’s done!!!  If you want to grow your sphere of influence this is a good starting point.


JoanJoan Cox Wish I Knew...Those Early Years

I think we can all learn from our early years. And I'm with Joan and wasn't sure what to think when people began putting their photos on business cards.


NickNick Vandekar Thinking Big, Thinking Small

We all know the big and the small thinkers! I'll bet you're working with some right now.



HannahApril 27: Hannah Williams What Is ActiveRain That Is the Question

This month's challenge has been so much fun because we're given the opportunity to see this platform through another member's eyes.


RockyRocky Dickerson Color Me Curious

What's your opinion? I'm curious too.



Margaret RomeMargaret Rome You've Got Mail Hopefully

This is something I've done in all of our moves. It's also a service you could provide for your sellers.
