What's Shakin' in Charlotte, NC?


Thanks to Debe Maxwell for Incredible ActiveRain Meetup!

The stage was set...walk up to Savvy & Company's beautiful "savvy blue" historic home...fill your plate with an incredible Debe Maxwell hosts ActiveRain meetupMexican food from Salsarita's, fill your cup with a yummy frozen margarita, and settle down for an afternoon seminar with ActiveRain trainers helping us develop our Internet presence through blogging!

This is what we Charlotte ActiveRainers found when we arrived at our Charlotte meetup, hosted by our very own blogging guru and hostess-with-the-mostest, Debe Maxwell!  Despite having TWO closings that day and family medical issues, Debe and her colleagues at Savvy pulled off the perfect afternoon.  Ever the gracious host, Debe greeted all attendees and made sure that we all were introduced to each other.  Once again, I felt that weird sort of out-of-body experience meeting AR friends face-to-face for the first time.  I loved every minute of it!

I liked the prototype of the ActiveRain meetup - having sites all over the country hosting a meetup at the same time so that we could all participate in an ActiveRain rain camp at the same time, and without all the travel expenses.  I hope ActiveRain will do it again!

Thank you, thank you, thank you Debe!  We all LOVE you so much and appreciate all you do to help everyone grow their business through blogging.  You are a natural born teacher and giver, and we are all greatly in your debt!  I wanna be like you!!!!

OH, Melissa thank you so much!  You are TOO kind!  I had a great time and only wished it had lasted longer than the 6 hours it did!!  What a great day to re-connect with other local AR members and several who we hope to get onboard the ActiveRain train!

You'll always be very special to me and I appreciate your friendship more than you'll ever know!  Hope you have a wonderful weekend...

Sounds like you all had a great time, Melissa.  And I fully agree with you, that Debe is an example that all of us can emulate.

Melissa, you nailed it, Debe does do so much for others!  What a kind tribute and thank you shout out...  I'd say you are a lot like her already :)

Thanks so much for doing this, Melissa! You have captured Thursday well; both in photos and words. Debe has just been wonderful to me and I have learned a ton from her. She graciously shares much that she learned the hard way through trial and error over time. I know we all have a lot of love and respect for her. This meet-up and webinar was such fun! The opportunity to ask questions and share knowledge really made this event worth every minute! I do appreciate Debe and the rest of Savy hosting us. I can't imagine it done better anywhere else. They may want to consider another business on the side, in addition to real estate!

Thank you all SO much but, Lexie and Shonn are the stars here--without them, this event would never have happened!  I had so much going on (personal and business) and they enlisted the staff and took care of EVERYTHING!  All I had to do was show up an hour ahead of time (with Tequila and Triple Sec in-hand!!) and help finish setting up.  How blessed I am to work with such fabulous partners, employees and agents--it's one big, amazing family, for sure!

And, Mary, I'm working on some 'new stuff' right now and the trials will be complete in the next few weeks so, I may have a few tips to share when I'm through!  After all of the additional work, I'm beginning to think that Ben's idea of utilizing overseas help is not such a bad one some days!  LOL

Hope you all have a fantastic week!
