As some of you may know I have transitioned to being a full time real estate agent which means I transitioned to a steady weekly paycheck that kept me and my family very comfortable to a…..ugh when is my next payday?!?!
I’m starting this blog to talk about just that. I found myself in a situation much like many others I would assume. I was faced with a decision…continue to travel and be vacant from my families lives or “bite the bullet” and attempt to make a living solely based on commission. WOW!
When you think about the fact that you ONLY get paid when you sell something (a house, a car, or any commission based employment) it can be VERY scary! Especially when you have 3 beautiful (and spoiled) kiddos at home.
After the rollercoaster of emotions have passed over the last few weeks I came out the other side with one resolution. DETERMINATION! I will make this work! I will be successful and I will continue to provide for my family. Now every family is different OF COURSE, but ours is a bit unique. I am not going to get into the details about how my husband and I have adopted and made a beautiful life for our kids, but it doesn’t come without its own unique challenges.
I want this blog to be a place of inspiration for others. My hopes are that someone out there struggling with making the decision to be a full time commission based employee where you can have time with your family will find some solitude. In the past year I think the one thing we can all agree on is TIME is precious and something of no value!
Well there it is! My introduction! I hope you will come back and read more as I update you on my journey in this new chapter of my life!
