I Can Always Count on ActiveRain for Inspiritation- Day 24 of 31 Day Challenge!

It's nice to know I can always count on AR for a little inspiration. After a very tough day in the mortgage business I was completely spent. Today in the business it "seems" like every scenario is a "square peg for a round hole".


Anyway, I logged into AR and on my home page I had moved up on the leader board in my area from #8 to #7, thanks to participating in the "31 Day Challenge". The challenge has been a journey with days of interesting to not so interesting posts. I know it's not about the points, but thanks AR for the inspiration to blog another day!

Do you have a scenario that is outside the box or "square peg for a round hole? Call 703-497-3936 or email "Your Woodbridge FHA and VA Expert" to see if we can make it work.

Contact Markita Aldridge-Woods at (703) 929-2274 or via email for custom tailored mortgage solutions.

Good for you. This challenge is all about consistency. Keep it up and the cash will start rolling in.....a side effect of blogging.

I agree, I am creeping along and some days have to really push it.  My google juice has improved too!

@Ellie thanks for the encouragement...I am waiting on that cash any day now :)

@Christine lets keep it going. I have not checked on Google juice but I would think it is much "sweeter"!

We are almost there! I have found that when I commit to a challenge, not much can stand in the way.  Best of luck to you.

Markita, yes, I agree, the contests gives us the incentive to blog daily and now you see the point behind the points.  ACTION = RESULTS. Consistent blogging will keep you moving up. Great job.
