Interesting question and illustrations. Along with the financial reward and helping others, I think that the ability to make my own schedule and work as hard as I want to or as little is a great motivator for me.

I've been service oriented since I was a child. for me serving my clients is central to my life as a real estate agent. And I find that very satisfying, sometimes challenging but always satisfying.

I like the infographic.... and full time to me meant that I could retire before I was 60.... and now I continue to make money and have not been in a home for over 12 years..... and I can continue to do marketing from anywhere and on MY time, until I can't remember how to turn the computer on!!!!

Interesting 'Survey and Statistics' - great Blog Inna Ivchenko!!  Ask me that question in a few years, as I haven't been a realtor for '1' year yet.  I'm sure it will mean something different to me then, as right now it's not like any job I've ever worked - even On Call jobs that were potentially 7 days a week!

In order to succeed you have to love what you do, if not, it may be time for a new job. That leads to the way i look at my 30 years in real estate. Never do i look at it like a job, but an adventure.

I love seeing statistics.  For me, I love not knowing what will come my way each day.  I have systems in place and compartmentalize my day in order to com plete certain tasks and maintain my sytems.  When it comes to clients it can be a 24 hour business.  I do have boundaries but also make myself available to them by phone or email until I go to bed.

I recently read some stats and they say that the average age of a Realtor is 56 y.o. and only 3% are below 30 y.o. 

What is the most interesting: 10% of Realtors control 90% of all listings. 50% of agents do not do any sales. 

Those who get a RE license should always remember that RE is direct sales that means you have to find your customers.

Inna,

I love Brenda Mayette 's response.  She is no doubt referring to a theory in mathematics

Chaos theory is the field of study in mathematics that studies the behavior and condition of dynamical systems that are highly sensitive to initial conditions—a response popularly referred to as the butterfly effect.  There are things impossible to predict, but they do have an order to them.  A
