Yes, I am the girl that's always leading the pack especially in tech. I've given up trying to bring people over to the dark side (new side). 

3 years later someone else talks about it & it's like a rainbow from heaven with this new idea!

Yes but that is when I know I'm on to something. Everyone made fun and laughed at me when I started a blogging 10 years ago. I would tell agent friends about my agent friends all over the nation on activerain. They laughed that I had online friends. One Realtor friend referred to my AR buddies as my "pen pals."

I don't really know I guess.  I'm too busy selling real estate to care what my peers think about my ideas.

I wouldn't say that but I have been told I am a very creative thinker. Once a friend said, "Sybil, you don't think outside the box, you don't even know there is a box".

No, it's not that, it's more like people find it easier to pull people back instead of moving themselves forward.

You should not expected any support, love, respect. You make them happen by surrounding yourself with people who genially believe in you.

Yes, in many different areas of life, especially when new to a group; sometimes only to see those same ideas presented by an "insider" and be accepted enthusiastically (or in Investment Bankin, by a man!).
