KCM Weekend Library Links

Good Saturday morning afternoon!

We apologize for not being as active on our Twitter and Facebook accounts the past few days.  During our tour of New England & Western NY, we were hurdling one obstacle after the other: from cancelled flights, to non-stop-middle-of-the-night-blizzard driving (it’s a word, look it up), to abominable snowmen– you name it, we faced it. But the show must go on, and the work must continue!

That is why we are bringing you all the articles we sent (and should have sent) from last week all in one blog post.  We hope this makes it easy for you to track down any articles you may have missed and gives you a little extra reading material with your morning coffee this weekend.  (We don’t expect you to read all 42 articles below. But feel free to skim down and read the ones that sound appealing to you.)

    Umm… yes! What a service to those of us that would love the knowledge but don’t have the time/assistants to do all the skimming! Will retweet and share, and give you lots and lots of kudos! ;) Thanks for all you do!

    No problem, Stacy! Thank you for all the comments and all the retweets. We’ll see what we can do about making the “Weekend Library Links” a permanent fixture of the KCM Blog.

    (And if you’re really looking for extra time/assistants, take a look at keepingcurrentmatters.com. We provide agents with a lot of the tools and insights needed to make their job easier. Don’t mean to plug, just think it could help.)

    Keep spreading good information!

    Okay, so three definite “YES”s make KCM Weekend Library Links a GO!

    (And next time we’ll see if we can put them into categories. Hopefully this will make the links easier to browse.)

    Thanks for the feedback, and keep sharing good information!
