NO...wait for it....

But I LOVE being a Salesman and an Entrepreneur!!! The most noble profession in the world is sales. NOTHING happens without sales; no economy, no income, no wealth. So...oh wait.... yes, I guess I DO enjoy being an NAR, CAR, SDAR (wheew) Realtor because it's my license to SELL!

Are you asking if I like being a Realtor or in the real estate profession, Ginger. I do like being in the profession although there are days when I question my sanity for not retiring. As for being a Realtor, personally I feel that this is a form of forced unionization and I disagree with many of the things the NAR stands for.
