I Love Sales More and More Each Day! Do You?

When I realized I wanted to get into real estate as a career I did not realize how freeing it would be. I say this from experience, I am the kind of person who likes freedom. I am not talking about being able to work 10 hours a week and spend the rest of the time in the Bahamas drinking Pina Coladas by the ocean. I am talking about financial freedom. Sales has taught me how to be 100% dependent on myself. I know that if I am a little light one month on cash, it is 100% my fault. I also find it relieving that I do not have to clock in, show up for 8 hours with a 1 hour lunch, and get a minimal paycheck every two weeks. For some reason giving up my potential for a large income to have a false sense of corporate security never appealed to me. And while I was a mere 11 years old in 2008, I saw what the corporate world did to those who had been at companies for 30+ years and that scared me to no end!

Sales relies on your ability to close and the better I get at closing the more money I make. I LOVE the feeling on not having a limited income and while I am no where close to where I want to be as an agent, it is the chase that keeps me going. I did not write this to brag I just want to know if others feel the same. Why choose a sales job over a paycheck? Are we really that crazy? Or do we just love the idea of self-accountability? I for one am a sucker for the chase and the thrill of a sale! Let me know what you think.

Dear Kaleb,

Yup! You can always catch up with your work at midnight, if you had something better to do earlier. Of course not with clients, but the rest of what goes with it.

Kaleb, it is a career choice that has no limits, but hours are definitely not 8 to 5 five days a week.  Congratulations on your choice, and welcome to ActiveRain.
