If you haven’t joined or even visited the group yet, here is the description that I wrote there to give you some idea of what we are all about:
First question: Is this a fan club for the 80’s sitcom? No. I just wanted to think of something memorable for this group. This is meant to be a fun place to escape the daily drama of the real estate industry. Please feel free to post any family stories or lessons here. We envision this as a great place to share funny stories about kids, marriage, siblings, parenting, or anything family-related. Posts may relate business to family life, or they may be about striking a healthy balance between career and life. Welcome to Family Ties!
So come on over and check it out! We’re like one big happy family in this great group! If you aren’t visiting this group, I can assure you are missing out on some terrific writing. I look forward to seeing you there. Let me know if you have any questions. Thanks!
