Voice of the Agent: Give Back!

I learned early on in my business that in order to truly be able to reach as many people as possible, you must be focused on being a resource in the community.  Being a resource is just part of the profession by being willing to give back.  There's no "payment" to receive from it other than knowing you're helping people get more info and learn about new things.  Mindy and I agreed to find ways to enrich our community and we've seen them be a real blessing in our lives and to those around us!

Three ways we're giving back right now involve other blogs and Facebook pages.  When we find great info, we don't just keep it, we pass it on!

For You and the Crew
FYC is a blog and Facebook page used to pass on any family and kid-friendly info we find about events and venues going on in the area.  Mindy runs this page/blog and features monthly events calendars, community highlights, and lists on the blog for birthday party venues, outdoor photography locations, VBS venues, kids eat free, and community coupons.  She also features vendor giveaways for free passes, meals, and coupons to area businesses.  Wanting to find out about events around Indy?  Join the FYC family!

Fit Gal Club
Mindy has lost 92 pounds after the birth of our 4th child, and she is passionate about living a balanced life of diet and fitness.  She started the Fit Gal Club midway through her journey and it's since grown to help other women and men everywhere keep on keeping on.  She has a blog and Facebook page for this, too, and uses it for daily motivation and accountability of anyone needing it!  Other features on the blog include: a list of her favorites in fitness, a 12-week challenge, recipes, and fitness celebrations of others on their journey.

Community Awareness
We each use our own Facebook pages and the DM Irish Facebook Page and blog to highlight anything house and home and anything about the community that others might want to know.  If it's a school info meeting, a product, a restaurant, an app, or just a fun place we find for the family, we'll tell you about it!

In order to stay connected with us, please make sure to join one or all of our Facebook pages above.  We have lots to share and we desire for you to receive what we have to give!  Then the key is to pass it on to others in your circle, it forward!
