This is great!  There is so much I need to learn/re-learn/remember and making sure I have this time set aside will be a great help! It may just be the kick in pants I need! Had a great meetup today and am looking forward to RainCamp!

Hi Kerrie - This is a great new service offered by ActiveRain.  Many coaches and real estate offices offer bootcamps.

Posted by FN LN about 8 years ago

OK Kerrie.  I'll get myself signed up.  Educatio can never hurt!  I may not be able to attend all the sessions, but I'm confident that they will be offered again.

Kerrie, you had me at "Boot" Camp - after all I live in the Pacific Northwest, or as you in sunny Seattle probably know it - the "Wet" Coast of BC!  Gotta get in on this - even after a blessed year on AR, there is so much more to learn and I love the idea of 'fast-tracking' the learning thru a boot camp forum!

Had a great MeetUp in Baltimore today!

Good luck with the Boot Camp.  It should be outstanding.

Posted by Roy Kelley (Realty Group Referrals) about 8 years ago

This is a wonderful idea, Kerrie! Best of luck to all those Rainmakers that attend!!!!

Hope yesterday's RainCamp goes to tutorial mode since I had to be with clients and missed it.

How long are each of these Thursday sessions?

Posted by Robert Bob Gilbert, Your Katy TX ( West of Houston) Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties) about 8 years ago

Bob - Anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.  We'll  have them recorded so you can catch up on anything you've missed along the way too.

Kerrie~ I signed up, but haven't had any further contact.  Thought I would get a confirmation.  What time is tomorrow's session?

Posted by Donna Foerster, Metro Denver Real Estate Assistant (HomeSmart Realty Group) about 8 years ago

Donna and everyone, Boot Camp has been pushed back one week and will begin May 3rd.  We've had an overwhelming response and want to accommodate everyone.  I hope this works for everyone!!!
