Get to the breaking point FIRST. It will save you a lot of money and reveal whether the fabric exists to make a success of this decision.

So, what do I mean breaking ?
pointRun towards what you fear. Slay that dragon and you'll know. At that point visionary agents will line up to show how to finesse your  and skills to their most profitable advantage.resources

The typical path is to advise you to chase unicorns then $12,000 later you'll think it was your fault you must return to a past endeavor. 90% of newbies never see their 2nd year anniversary but the almost caught a unicorn. Most unicorns wear a suit that looks like train'n. You don't learn or earn warming a stool in a conference room. You earn and learn by DOING. That is scary for many.

You have a license, you need experience. Easy does it until you get your sea legs. Getting your foundation during a tough market will serve you well with hard earned lessons. Work, time management, creative spirit and savings or someone with a real job is needed until you develop your career skills unique to your special real estate market. Get away from the water cooler, flee the office, circulate and make lists of what you are going to accomplish today but be prepared to have to put much on hold when a seller for a listing, a buyer taps you on the shoulder and is qualified so let's go.. let's go NOW!
