Thinking Outside the Bawks

Thinking Outside the Bawks

 

Henny Penn dreamt of becoming the most successful co-op sales professional in her area. Excitedly signing up and paying for class tuition, she set out to diligently earn official, licensed status at a local, accredited school. 

 

After chores, into the evening hours, Henny happily sat among her peeps, as seasoned instructors enhanced their knowledge time and again. They often recalled past real estate sales experiences that were quite entertaining.

 

From humorous stories to happy endings to less than savory events that left them empty handed despite their valiant efforts to make it work. Henny scratched out copious amounts of notes while intently listening to every word.

 

Finally, she finished the 8-week program and began studying every free moment during the day and late into each evening. Henny was becoming ultra-obsessed with knowing every bit of relevant, industry information.

 

The day finally came to take the test. She went through the study guide once again, took a deep breath, quietly entering the room to begin the examination. Sitting down. gazing into the screen, her mind went completely blank.

 

Everything was forgotten! Try as she may, nothing was recalled, her hopes were dashed and eventually she left the building, never to return. Finally, the realization hit hard, Henny was incapable of thinking outside the bawks!

 

 Oh flock, guess she'll go into egg-o-nomics instead!

Being prepared prevents those disastrous moments, Doug Dawes. Speaking in front of a crowd is daunting already!

This story goes to show that not every chick is meant to shake their tail feathers in real estate, BB. Henny went on to the chopping block at her next career! 👀 LOL

Henny went into politics, got involved with the wrong folks and did not kill herself!

Wanda Kubat-Nerdin - Wanda Can! I normally over prepare, but every time I am supposed to give a speech or take a test, I am always concerned my mind will go BLANK.

The tests are also a bit tricky at times and certainly make a person feel like they know nothing about what was learned, haha.

Hi Wanda,
Henny must have been chicken to take the test again.  I know several agents who took the test as many as five times before passing. 😗

Did the buyer balk or walk, Endre Barath, Jr.? A fair offer is just that and the seller pulling the price up like that is unusual.

Testing is difficult for some, Brian England, while others breeze right through the information. The trick questions are ridiculous!

She thought it was fowl and then bawked about it for some time before coming to terms with the results, Carol Williams. Some are simply not meant to be in this industry!
