Brad Andersohn is "one great trainer"!

By
Real Estate Broker/Owner with Carousel Realty of Dyer County Tn 248435000

Brad Andersohn asked each of us to do this post while sitting in this training class!

I want to especially mention Jan Evett who came from Panama City,Florida for this training! I also want to recognize Vickie McCartney who drove in from Owensboro,Kentucky. Also in attendance and driving quite a distance was Larry Brewer from Nashville,Tn. In addition to several of my agents in attendance, others included David Saks from Memphis,Tn. , Pat Cummings and Janice Reed from Brownsville,Tn and Gretchen Whitlow from McKenzie,Tn.

We covered lots of material and many took notes. We talked about profiles,posts,hyperlinks, and spent a lot of time learning how to post. We discussed how to up load pictures.

Brad discussed the "groups" and how to find the groups and mentioned how to join a group and also how to start a new group. We also spent quite a bit of time discussing how important your profile is. One thing that he recommended is putting links to all your previous posts right there on the profile.

Right at 12 noon we stopped for lunch and the catered in meal was wonderful. We really lost track of time as we were talking and sharing stories. Finally, at 12:30 I told the group we only have about an hour left with Brad.

So we scooted back to the conference room for the final hour that lasted almost 2 hours. Brad shared with us the importance of Google and the "free" pictures, and all the free tools available from Google. He also stressed the importance of posting to localism and how "Google" is really our friend! He showed us how to search on Activerain by "tags" and encouraged us to search for Activerain "success stories".

In the final 15 minutes we quickly went over video including Mixpo. Brad showed us a video he did of his wife singing a song she wrote which he put the music to. This was done with a "flip video" and it was really impressive to say the least!

I want to personally thank everyone for coming and for Activerain letting Brad come to Tennessee for this event. Right now as I type, I believe Brad and David Saks are touring Graceland

.

Here are the two "short flip videos" that I shot at the event!

Marchel,

He was absolutely great!

Matt,

Brad came to Tennessee at my invitation. Originally, this was mainly for my office but I had a few seats open so I opened it up to any Activerainer who wanted to come. My plans are to make this annual event!

Jan, Still cannot believe you came up from Florida to attend this event. I guess Brad has that kind of"pull"!

Gretchen, It was great to meet you as it was great to meet Jan. We had a "great learning experience"!

Mike - what a great day it was!  Did you have to video us eating? hahaha!! 

It was truly a pleasure spending the day together with you and the others.  I have to say, your hospitality and generosity was just awesome!  You made me feel at home and like a V.I.P the entire time. 

I calculated that I had traveled close to 5000 miles, and spent 25 hours in route, just for a few hours of time together...and I'd do it all again in a heartbeat. 

Thanks again for everything, and to ALL the members who joined us yesterday.  Ya all have a special place in my heart today!  

Uh Oh, I did it, I said Ya All, we knew this was going to happen  LOL!~   :-))

Brad, Actually I videoed your plate to show your wife you did not over indulge! Also, I suspect this may have opened the flood gates for others wanting your services!

Mike, what a great group you had at your training! Brad is wonderful and I'm sure you learned a lot. I'm just curious..the girl at the table in the background...did she do something wrong and got banished from the group? LOL

Linda, Thank-you for commenting. The girl alone at the table is my personal assistant who came for the lunch only. We couldn't squeeze her in at the row of tables but my trainer(Jackie Keeling) ended up sitting there with her.
