The 2021 GenBlue Experience: A RESI Recap
October 4-7, we were attendees for the annual GenBlue Experience and had the opportunity to be on the learning side of things (although we will always learn more from our agents than we could ever teach them).
The quality of the learning sessions and the line up of speakers was one for the ages!
From GMA's Robin Roberts, to the #1 most watched TED Talk speaker, Angela Duckworth. From BILLION (with a "B") Producers, to the most inspirational stories from REALTORS just like you! We were serenated by the likes of the Harlem Gospel Choir, the most incredible survivor and former St. Jude Patient, Addie Pratt and the amazing Bebe Rexha!
The week was jam packed and we have brought it all to you in less than 45 minutes with our favorite moments and take aways!
