People. People are what I love about my business and also what drives me bat-crap crazy. Good people doing the right thing ... attraction like a magnet. Not so good people doing the not so right thing ... deceiving and being dishonest ... it is not only hard ... I want nothing to do with them. Sometimes we have to deal with them.

The biggest challange for me is also the reason I live and work in a small town. Very tight knit community. Everyone knows everyone. Coming from another state, even though there are deep family roots  here, you are an outsider. Striving each day to prove that I am worthy of their business. But I am loving the workout!

Writing poetry.

Let me explain.

So much of what being a real estate agent is, is about what is done to us. Writing and reading poetry is the therapy that keeps us going with the right mind, heart and spirit. Some agents do not have the right heart, mind and spirit.

I would say figuring out what activities are most productive in gaining name recognition. One can easily throw all their dollars away on advertising and just as easily waste all their time on social media with out gaining the desired results. Figure out quick what works for you and save some time and money to live on.
