There is so much love and positiveness in this post. It sums up how so many sharing and caring people help so many others.
Debe Maxwell, CRS is that shining star among the ActiveRainbows.
Love how Debe incorporated the colors and highlighted so many members in her blog and in the comments.
Somewhere Over the ActiveRainbow, there is a Pot of Gold (and a few guidelines)!
I've never been a rule-breaker - always taking the high road and always following the law to a 't.' Rules, guidelines & laws are set in place for a reason and I believe that if everyone stuck to them, the world would be a better place!
Here on ActiveRain, the guidelines are few but, they are clear, concise and meant to be taken seriously. In fact, following them takes really no thought - read them and heed them, pure & simply! What do you get when you follow the community guidelines? An amazing experience in the Rain!
If ever in doubt of whether it's the right thing or the wrong thing to do, re-read the guidelines and then, read Liz and Bill Spear's (among others) Ask an Ambassador posts. Bill & others regularly shares tips to adhere to the very simple to follow community guidelines - plus you'll glean some pretty awesome tips about niche marketing from Bill too.
The beauty of this fabulous real estate venue, ActiveRain, is that it is not just a place to market our business (on our own blog - not others, of course!) - ActiveRain a plethora of opportunities. We have the opportunity to learn so much from so many wonderful members who are so giving of themselves. Margaret Rome, for example, sets the bar for her write-ups featuring her fabulous, unique listings. She takes the time to give us many "how-to" ideas and she reaches out to members with a quick phone call to congratulate them for a job well-done or to offer assistance to those in need.
We are so blessed to have so many members who give so generously in the Rain on a daily basis; now, maybe not all of the members are participating to their fullest potential but, it's here for the taking and the giving! Like many of you, I would never have known the value of ActiveRain had I not jumped in with all I had. I would never have learned to market the way that I do (many thanks to Barbara Todaro), write market reports (thanks, Michael Jacobs) to run my business the way that I do (Anna Banana Kruchten CRS,CRB & Jeff Dowler), to photograph (Dick Greenberg), stage (Kathy Streib & Sharon Tara) or network (Sally K. & David L. Hanson) the way that I do. Had it not been for ActiveRain and the wonderful members, I would have far fewer relationships with like-minded professionals from all across the nation!
This is just the tip of the iceberg - or the beginning of the Rainbow! There are SO many amazing members here who offer so much guidance and all will gladly help answer any questions you may have. What a wonderful group of fantastic professionals!
I've always been a believer in following ones dreams; there may not be an actual 'pot of gold' at the end of the ActiveRainbow' but, there certainly are rewards for giving of yourself to help others. The ActiveRainbow extends far beyond the written word that is shared here on our blogs. Taking heed to those words, following through on the multitude of suggestions offered and working diligently to improve upon our businesses IS the pot of gold that awaits us.
And I believe the more we give, the more overflowing the pot of gold at the end of the ActiveRainow will be. Follow the rules (community guidelines) in the Rain, dive in and you'll discover that pot of gold!
