Taking Risk

Real Estate Agent with J. Roberts & Company

Hi everyone. Let me start out by saying that if we never take risk, we will never get ahead. I read so much doom and gloom and how all of the opportunities are disappearing. I do not believe that. No matter what is going on, the situation is what we make it.

I just took a major leap and left a job of seven years. Ask me why and I will tell you it is because I am looking to broaden my horizons. The truth is, I want a better future for myself and my family. I was burnt out doing auto financing. It seems the right time to do it.

When I decided to make the jump a lot of my friends told me I was nuts. Real Estate, they said. Car business is bad but real estate? I didn't listen to the negative parts. I did my research, prayed, and listen to my mentors.

Yes, this is my first post and I am just starting out in this business. I have been doing alot of reading on ActiveRain and want to say thanks for all the great info. I am looking forward to being a part of this community and joining you all in this great career!


Make them calculated.

Stay positive.

Follow those who are successful.

Hi Billy,

I think it's great you took the leap. You've done your research, have mentors, resources (ActiveRain and Prayer), and you're positive. Not really such a leap; just the first steps toward a happier future for you and your family.
