I’m happy to be back in Austin after 5 days of real estate redevelopment learning in Houston. The second class I took was a repeat of my favorite, the rehabbing class. I’ll talk more about that later. Today I want to rave about the best thing about joining a group to learn new skills: networking.
Now, Lee and I are both introverts. We came by the “Hermits” label honestly. Being in large crowds tends to be very draining for us. Nonetheless, we had a great time last week, as I pointed out in my first post about our Houston classes. It turns out to be a lot easier to just gab with random strangers if you know you have something in common. Everyone at this event works in some area of home renovation, so we all had something to talk about immediately.
