Do What You Love

Do What You Love

Do what you love. What does that mean to you? To me, it's making sure I am happy in anything and everything I do. In the big picture, to love everything I do in life. Real Estate is what I love. Now if you had asked me from the time I was a little girl to about 5 years ago if I could ever see myself as a Real Estate agent? I would have told you, you were the craziest person on the planet. I grew up in this industry, to be more specific I grew up in the New Home industry. Both of my parents worked for new home builders for as long as I could remember. My dad in sales and my mom in the design center. Having both parents working all the time made for a childhood with a lot of "take your child to work days"  and me spending a lot of time in model homes. I remember going to work my dad and to pass the time I would put fake contracts together for my fake clients, get in trouble with the accessible golf carts and some times display a real life affect to the prospects walking thru by swimming and playing in the model pool. Looking back now, I would say writing all of my fake contracts for my fake clients was a little foreshadowing into how my life would transform later. I went to college and majored in everything under the sun and nothing ever stuck with me, I felt like I just couldn't make my mind up and settle down with just one major and I didn't want to spend the money figuring that out. I eventually went and started working full time and landed a slew of different jobs ranging from retail, sales, and customer service but still, I was never fulfilled and felt like my life was going nowhere but a brick wall. I always pictured my life a certain way to have it that certain way I needed to have a good job, but none of the jobs I looked into was going to get me where I wanted to be. My dad thru the idea of me getting my real estate license years ago and I just kind of dismissed it. Growing up my parents worked, ALOT. My dad missed a lot of events because his schedule wasn't a normal one, as we know sales don't sleep. I also watched both parents lose their jobs when the market came crashing down and I never wanted to be in the position where that would happen to me. It all looked so crazy and a chaotic career to choose.
Which leads me to about 3 years ago when I found myself in a job where I was extremely unhappy and knew it wasn't going where I even wanted it to. I needed to break up and figure out what the heck I was doing with my life. The idea of going to Real Estate school seemed to be looking better and better, why not give it a shot? It's always good to have as a back up plan. So I signed up for school and started learning Real Estate. At first it was like, what did I get myself into, it seemed so foreign to me and it was so much information all at once. I got thru my classes and blood, sweat and tears were spilled into my school test, leading me to ace my state exam. Even having my license knowing  had endless opportunities at my fingertips scared the living out of me. It wasn't until my very first open house that I knew this was what I was meant to do. I fell in love during that afternoon in Maricopa selling my very first listing.
The career I chose isn't stable, its stressful, and you have to work damn hard at what you do to get where you want to be, but I know I made the right decision jumping into it with all feet. I know that with the continued work, I will reach the goals I had set for my life and reach an inner success I've strived for. All while, I get to help people go through one of the biggest steps of their lives, grow relationships with clients and make them in the end, happy, which exactly what I am. Happy. I love what I do.
Think about the things you love, are you living the happiest life you could? Do you love what you do? Life is too short to not enjoy every moment. So make that change. It will be worth it in the end, trust me.
