Kerrie's Blog: October 2012

Great time had at the Exit Convention in Nashville

What a blast it is getting to talk with members face-to-face and also educating newbies on the power of ActiveRain.  There is a ton of fresh meat here in the 'Rain so please welcome them when you see them posting and commenting.

We stayed at Gaylord Opryland and let me tell you....each time I ventured from my room to the hall or the gym or the party I got lost.  Once I even ended up in this beautiful garden full of fountains and lights which I later found out was the Garden Conservatory.  A huge, beautiful bio dome that makes you feel like you're outside when you're not.  I didn't go outside for 3 days but wouldn't have known.  Such a cool spot for a convention indeed.

The #1 excuse I heard for not blogging was time.  I know life gets busy and sometimes it may feel as though there aren't enough hours in the day but come on...you have time to surf the net, watch the game and eat so BLOG!  It's the simplest tool you can use to build your business and market yourself where otherwise you would be without a presence.  My greatest joy was talking to a new agent or broker and trying to explain the benefits and then having a seasoned member come up and sing our praises.  You can't pay for that kind of advertising!!

There are quite a few that will be joining us for the next Boot Camp series kicking off November 8th.  I hope to be at more and more of these conventions because there is nothing better than hanging out with our members!
