Success in the Rain

Is everyone still stuffed from Thanksgiving?!?  Maybe having some leftovers tonight?  I hope you all had a great holiday and took time to reflect on that which we are thankful for.

Success is brewing in the 'Rain and it won't stop!  The crew will be travelling to Philly for RainCamp and I can't be more excited to meet more of the AR family.  I'm having RainCamp withdrawls! 

Check out the superstars below and I hope you all have a wonderful week!

"I'd like to thank my colleagues in our Active Rain community for their insightful tips and useful suggestions. I had never door- knocked before I read 2 compelling stories on Active Rain about 2 agents who achieved much success and had fun at it using specific scripts and tactics. I incorporated these scripts and tactics in my marketing plan and I am also enjoying similar success with my farm. Thank you for always willing to share strategies that work!"
