The ActiveRain Stuff You Won't Find Anywhere Else on the Web

RainCamp in Atlantic City - The Treasure Map To Success

This will be my first trip to Atlantic City and I'm really excited to be part of the new 2-Day extravaganza.  I've never been to Philly or New Jersey so this will be another great adventure.  After hearing there's going to be some special guests and some great stuff happening this year, I volunteered to come participate and contribute as well. 

The theme is Reputation Architecture.  I'm honored to be able to share some of what I have learned of this topic over the years. I also cannot wait to come see many of my old friends and AR family.  Some of the greatest memories and relationships I have were created at RainCamps.

Just before writing this, I was looking at the RainCamp Squidoo Lens that was built way back when RainCamps first started. It brought back some wonderful memories. Many of you were there.  Reading the comments, watching the videos and reviewing members posts reminded me why we started these, and it also put into perspective how far we've come.

One of the most valuable take-aways folks can expect from RainCamp is the ability to implement what you learn into your business immediately.  I've seen people do this before RainCamp is even over. (Mobile Technology rules!)  Some of my personal and favorite take-aways happen at lunch time, and in the hallways, and talking with others at the breaks and at the after-party.

The synergy, ideas, and creative tips that get shared are worth every effort it takes for me to be at these events.

"Relationship seeds get planted and created here on ActiveRain, but at RainCamp, they blossom into harvests."  

If you're going to make it to RainCamp in Atlantic City, I'll have a special gift for you.  Just come up to the booth at the break or anytime during the day and say "RainCamp - The Treasure Map" and my gift will be yours.  Have a piece of paper and a pencil ready so you can copy your "personalized" treasure map.  Every "map" will be different and unique, and I guaranty that YOUR map will help lead you to a buried treasure and to your success.

Need a little more motivation to go?  This certainly got me excited...

See you in Atlantic City next week and if you're flying into Philly on Sunday night, let me know.  You can catch a ride to Caesar's with me if you're going that way.  Looking forward to seeing you all there.

Brad, I bet it has been hard not attending all the Raincamps when you use to be at all of them…

I have been pretty busy Paul, and the couple I did miss... I regretted for sure.

I will be heading down to Atlantic City for my Second Rain Camp next week, last year was my first Rain Camp when it was in Manhattan.  I love visiting Atlantic City, I go there every December for the Realtor Triple Play!

Wish the timing was not so awful for me, I'd love to be there but am having trouble freeing up the two days.  Gonna miss it (and yo of coarse!).

Hi Brad~  I am from Philly!  You will love it.  New Jersey is great too.  Margate is my favorite place to go in NJ.  It is just minutes from Atlantic City.  I am going to be in PA the following week with my husbnd on a business trip.  Too bad it isn't a week sooner!  Have fun!

@Brad - Are you going to be here for the Dallas RAIN CAMP? We are going to that. Hope to see you.

Posted by Mike Yeo (3:16 team REALTY) about 9 years ago

I do plan on being at EVERY RainCamp going forward.  You just don't know what you missed until you miss one!!  lol~

Hi Brad,

Thanks for the great detailed post about the RainCamp.  Have a great time.  Let us know how your trip went.  Have a great week!

Cheers from Lake Tahoe,

Brad -- I absolutely hate that I have to miss this.  I cannot be away Mon night thru Tuesday due to a longtime prior commitment. IF it was 2 hours closer, I might me able to swing it, but.....  Would love to hear you speak again.  You were awesome at the NYC Raincamp last year. Enjoy AC!  Hope you get some time to play in the casinos!

Sound the trumpets, Atlantic City has no idea what's about to happen in their city!!!!!!!!!

Bring your cameras, your note pads, and your open minds.... and a designated driver for after.....

This looks like so much fun. I will have to make it a goal to attend one of these raincamps.

ALWAYS strong and compelling!  Gotta love it.

I'm already hearing about some great AR gatherings that are taking place before, during, and after RainCamp. 

If you're putting something together, please be sure to let us all know what time, when, and where. 
(if they're not private of course)

I don't remember getting this excited about a RainCamp event before.  I attend and participate at many of these RE events but something is telling me that this particular RainCamp is going to be different that anything else or any other one I've attended. 

Maybe it's just the Jersey Shore?  It could just be that I'm really looking forward to seeing so many folks that I miss and have wanted to meet in person for so long....  yeah, that must be what it is!! 

It's Tuesday and I'm already packing for Sunday!!!  lol~  :-))))))

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 9 years ago

I do look forward to seeing you in Dallas all over again.

I attended the raincamp in New Orleans during the NAR conference.  Great info and well worth it.  Would you recommend going again so soon?

Let see. I can reinforce some of the concepts and things I heard last November.  I will most likely learn something new that I can implement right away into my business.  I can spa, play poker and party and I'm just a 2 hour drive away.


Posted by Edward Perez (Sothbey's International Realty) about 9 years ago


See you at Raincamp AC!  Now if I can only remember "Raincamp... The Treasure Map"!  Will you be at the Zillow booth?

Ps I'm staying at Caesar's and, if you hear of anyone, I could use a roommate!

Posted by Kathy Opatka, Serving Ocean City, MD, & The Delaware Beaches (RE/MAX CROSSROADS) about 9 years ago

Eddie - everything changes from one RC to the next.  I would highly recommend attending every one that you can.

Kathy - see you there.  I'll be at all the booths including zillow so just find me wherever.  I'm staying at Caesars too and will keep my ear out for a room mate for you? 

You should check the RSVP list to see who's going so you can be selective and not get someone who snores!!  lol~  just kidding...   :-)

Posted by Brad Andersohn, ActiveBrad - 707.646.1876 (Executive Director of Education at eXp Realty) about 9 years ago

Brad - Have a Great Camp.  Hope everyone comes by your booth!

With you getting into Philly at 8:00 p.m. on Sunday, I'm not counting you as a firm attendee but you know you're always welcome to swing by. Other might want to participate and are welcome too!
