After months of tossing and turning over professional development ideas ranging from entrepreneurial pursuits to working with my mom to countless other pipe dreams, I kept coming back to the idea of real estate. I have always loved and admired home searches and sales, most notably enjoying the personal process that Hugo and I went through during our own sales and purchases. After a recent conversation with an elderly neighbor who has had her ranch property on the market without any interest, I chatted again with my close friend Meg about the ideas we have discussed in the past. Meg had previously offered to take me under her wing as a partner and to teach and mentor me if I chose to get my real estate license and work with her. While the idea is to pursue it part-time at first, it may possibly morph into a full-time job should things work out. So for now, I have signed up for my online coursework, met with representatives at Keller Williams to sign on with them, and arranged to hit the ground running with Meg once I am licensed and good to go!
I am excited to begin this new chapter, which comes on the heels of finishing my college degree and my promotion last year. I am also proud of continuing to push myself professionally and to learn another skill. Life is short and there isn’t any reason not to work as hard as possible for both personal success and the hope that one day, just maybe, I can buy Hugo that big, brand new fishing boat that he deserves ♥
