My new career has been a roller coaster ride so far. Which I am NOT used to! I have always "played it safe" with regards to jobs and/or careers. Something that real estate is certainly NOT.
Yet, with each frustration, I am blessed with gratitude. For without the dips, we could not appreciate the upswings. Today, a brand new client- I haven't even personally met them yet, referred me to his landlord for listing his rental property. My client also is referring me to his step-daughter, saying he will send everyone my way because I go "above and beyond". Needless to say, my day today was blessed and filled with gratitude. Now, I just need to not disappoint him!!! LOL
The past few months have been tough. Entering into an industry in which your "sphere of influence" is so important has been tough for me, as my SOI is all back up in Alaska! However, I have found, that even introverts can learn new tricks. I am getting better at talking to people I don't know. I have started (just today in fact!) recording short videos to send to new leads coming in from Face Book. The videos aren't that great (YET!), but I am determined that they will get better. Funny how something so uncomfortable can become addictive though... I have found that I am having more emails opened with the videos than I have had previously without. Time will tell how much difference they make.
My next challenge will be to obtain some listings. For some reason they intimidate me more than buyers. I haven't quite figured out why, but I am working on it. Maybe after I get the big FIRST ONE out of the way, it will be less intimidating. I hope so. Any advice here? I am all ears!
