I took my daughter to get her haircut this weekend. I didn't think the wait would be very long since there were three stylist and only two people ahead of us... but I was wrong...
It was a long wait, and I also had Mr. Man in tow. As Mr. Man gets fussy, he likes to be swung in his carseat. That always causes conversation with people about how strong I am and don't my arms hurt, yadda yadda... I even had a client interview last week where I had to bring him, and Mrs Buyer kept trying to get Mr Buyer to swing Mr Man for me, but I kept telling him it was my work out for the day.
Anyway, I digress... as I'm swinging Mr Man, I start talking with this lady as I noticed she was wearing a Realtor jacket so I asked her who she worked with. I told her I was also a Realtor. She looked at me hard and said that I looked familiar but couldn't place me. She listed off a couple of places, but nope.
Then, I asked her if she ever used ActiveRain. She said she did... and she looked at me again, to which I smiled.
"You're at the top of the page!" I blushed...
She said she reads my posts and likes what I have to say. I thought that was nice. I didn't/don't recognize her even though her profile says she joined in January 2007. Why? She wrote 4 posts in all of 2007, none in 2008, 1 in 2009, and 10 in 2010. She hasn't been back since September 2010... Why do I mention this? She's had 4 years to make herself known and she hasn't utilized the tools available to her. She made a comment that her business was slow and all I can say is that I've had 7 buyer appointments in the past 10 days, and Landon loves showing houses!!
Thanks ActiveRain as this is just another example of how people recognize me around town!
