Well…here we go!

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!

Remember Kindness! -Tommy
