Time, Family and Balance "Do I need Assistance"

Services for Real Estate Pros with Pic Properties

I read your blogs.......

I read your comments.......

I just wonder how some of you find the time to do all that you do.  My normal day is up at 6:30 and to the office at 8am.  On a good day I will be home around 7pm.  I usually get home and change my clothes and open up the laptop.  There I sit the rest of the evening in front of the computer.  I am either working on the website, creating new letters, and now BLOGGING.  I sometimes fit dinner in there somewhere or my husband has a fit.  Then I still need to clean the house, do some laundry (o.k. this is one thing Paul is great at), don't forget my hobbies, the step kids, my daughter, my granddaughter.  When I write it all down I PANIC.  I have to tell myself to take a breath.  Don't get me wrong, I thrive on the challenge. 

I wonder to myself what type of assistance you all have to help keep your life in order.  Do you hire  out the lawn care?  Do you have a housekeeper?  I look forward to hearing from all of you!

HELP..... I NEED HELP.....

Pick out the things that you hate the most and take the most time.  There never seems to be enough time in the day

Oh, Charlotte you are very funny.  I like that idea because that is probably what I do.  Of course it is the housework that goes undone.  Paul lets the yard go.  What is it that you let go?

I know everyone will say time management, but you might want to see if you could partner up with another realtor to share the workload. I have 2 other partners and it seems like we have accomplished so much in such a small amount of time - we are actually having fun doing this stuff!!!

A good housekeeper and a good personal assistant is something that every great Realtor has...

Time management is all I can say...I work all kinds of hours so when I have down time I'll blog or even early morning or late night.

Oh, you see I am not the Realtor, my husband is.  I have a full time demanding management job of my own.  I am his good assistant.  That is part of the problem.  I have been supporting him in getting started in this business.  That is why I work all day at my real job and then all night being his "assistant".  I know I have good time management otherwise I wouldn't be able to get through what I get through to be fully functional and on the top of my game at work and then come home and do all the things my husband needs done.  My problem is stomaching the guilt of not being able to take care of the house like I think I should.
