After a morning meeting at the Board of Realtors here in Columbus, Ohio, I met another great Realtor, Stephanie. We shared our stories on how trying to network with friends and family is sometimes the hardest..the disappointments many. You would think these people in your "sphere of influence" would support you the most...some have, others are afraid to get involved with someone they know so well. Any advice for overcoming that objection?? Do these people realize this is my own bread and butter?? I was glad to hear Steph's stories on this subject, I am not the only one feeling this frustration. It seems that the best referrals come from the complete strangers you work with!
Tomorrow I may want to blog about being a young mom in this business.......there is a need for a support group there, also!! I still love my job!!
