"I am proud to be a part of this initiative. I know friends with a good credit score that rent homes even though the rent is more than a house payment . They rent because they lack the funds for a down payment. Many of these people could buy their own home with the 3% contribution toward a down payment. Home ownership gives people more respect for themselves, their employers and the community that they live in. I was one of those people 15 years ago, I know too well the barriers that are out there."
"Luckily, my life is my biggest success. I have a wonderful wife and family. Our kids are incredible and I am very fortunate to earn a good living and enjoy the fruits of my labors and those that arrive all by themselves."
"Hire a virtual assistant to manage your Twitter so you get maximum benefits from the service.
Many business executives prefer to use social media themselves thinking they need to have full control of such channels so that they can control what’s being published out there. While it is true that it is important to control the kind of information posted from your company online,it is not always best for business executives to take full responsibility for tweeting or using other social media. This is because social media require an investment in time for them to be truly effective. Managing social media accounts may not be the best thing to prioritize for a CEO or a busy business owner.
It is important to use social media in business but you need to make sure that your company is able to invest enough time on them. If you cannot invest the time to make social media marketing work, then you may not gain full benefits from social media.
The smarter option is to hire a dedicated virtual assistant who can manage your Twitter and social media accounts for you. You need to brief your VA regarding your goals in tweeting and to inform them about what your company believes in and what your products and services are. In the beginning, you can have your VA wait for your approval before uploading anything in your social media accounts. Once your VA gets the hang of using Twitter to represent your company,you can give your VA more freedom to post information using your Twitter account just as long as the messages represent your company in a good light.
You may think that tweeting is such an easy activity you no longer need to outsource it. But it is not that easy to create 140-character messages that really communicate your business’ values to clients, especially if you have a very busy schedule. More than creating creative tweets, what’s more difficult is monitoring people’s responses and conversations online. With a dedicated person who is able to monitor responses and conversations online,your company can respond quickly and appropriately. A virtual assistant who is experienced in managing online inquiries, marketing and research can really help you get the most out of your Twitter, Facebook and other social media accounts.

"After a tour in the United States Navy as an Electronics Technician on Electro-Mechanical shipboard and land-based Satellite Equipment, plus almost 20 years in the Computer Graphics Design Industry, the extensive experience and tenacity for assessing details of both worlds gave way to the natural instinct of the Professional Inspector... This is my FULL-TIME career, not a dabble in a part-time hobby... because I love the job, and also helping people realize and address the information they need in making sound decisions concerning their investments. I had a really great inspector when I bought my home, and remembered it... I strive to provide that same sense of satisfaction to all of my clients, every day."
"My ActiveRain Success Story comes from the perspective of a Managing Real Estate Broker. I was tentative to get involved with this thing called "Social Networking"and WEB 2.0 but was encouraged to do so by my younger and tech savvy agents. It was suggested that I take a leadership role for my Office and promote this new activity to my agents. This I have done and have learned a host of new things. My office has taken a leadership role in Social Networking in the County and State. Our small community is being talked about, potential buyers and sellers are calling the office, agents are positive and those participating in Blog posts are becoming better writers and communicators and busier. This thing turned out OK!"
