FUN in the Sun While the Business Still Runs--- CONTEST WINNERS!!!!!!!

By
Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Liberty Homes RS-#62825

In more ways than just the MIRACLE OF MY LIFE ---my Grandson Brayden also got us off this island to take a vacation. I also had to have a plan in place so I could go on vacation for 11 days and not have to worry about my pending transactions.  They say that every time one plans a vacation business rolls in…and boy did it!   

 

FUN IN THE SUN WHILE THE BUSINESS STILL RUNS!

DO YOU HAVE A PLAN IN PLACE?

 

The POSITIVE ATTITUDE for the Weary Soul group offered all members a chance to share their own story of Fun in the Sun While the Business Still Runs and to support the ActiveRain community with their vacation stories (what they did while on vacation) and their business plans (how their business still ran while on vacation). These two components and of course following ALL the rules of the contest were the deciding factors for the top winners.

 

 Jeff Dowler was the Head Judge for this PAWS group contest and the other Judges were Andrea Sweidler, Charita Cadenhead and Richard Weisser. They worked hard and diligently to read every entry and deserve a big applause!!!

Though I believe every single entry is a winner the Judges HAD to pick their top picks. So without further hesitation….the following entries were the winners for this year’s FIRST SUMMER PAWS contest and a special thank you to Kerrie Greenhalgh(ActiveRain Community Manager) for allowing us to have this contest and approving the points!!!

 

 

ALL OTHER ENTRIES ARE WINNERS TOO!

Each receives an ADDITIONAL 400 points for one entry!

 

A BIG congratulations to all!

Congratulations to all, and to the winners, Dorie, Karen & Sylvia. It was indeed a tough call, and reading about all those vacations made me think I need to get away, LOL.

This was a great contest, getting caught up in working so much and feeling we don't have time to take a break can be a common pitfall, but through reading many blogs it's easy to see how it can accomplished.

This was an inventive, adn fun, contest, and clearly the participants had fun talking about their vacations, and how to keep their business running while enjoying those trips. Sure made me want to go somehwere REAL soon. And there were lots of good tips for everyone to keep in mind to they, too, can take trips aways and keep business running.

There were so many good posts and it was a challenge to sort through, and there were several rounds of juding to finally come up with the winners. A tough job indeed.

Congratulations to everyone who took part, and in particular to the winners.

Sally, congratilations to winner, thanks to you for innovative contest and special thanks to all judges for their contribution.

I wish I could enter the contest...but was so busy, so busy, so busy..and no one to take care of my business....and had no time to do what I like the most - blogging on ActiveRain (just kidding...though the last part related to blogging is true.)
