Pinkston, a real estate agent & REALTOR® in Chicago, IL, shares how she shows Millennials - not just teaches them - how to make sound investments in real estate. She’s driven by her motivation to never let any of her clients deal with the negative experience she did when buying her first home and, as a result, is a powerful fiduciary for her clients and students. Listen in to hear why Shaun is #theoldestmillennialrealtor

  • 14:00 - They teach people because they’ve done it for the past 17 years; they help them with budgeting and offers based on experience

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
