When I first started real estate school, I still had my 2 On-Call jobs, though did give up my volunteer work.  Once I graduated and took my State & National Exams, then I went full-time.  Months later, I became part of 'Team Angeloni', so I was constantly with Roger all day, every day.  There was alot to learn just by observing, and seeing what is said and what is asked in conversations and at meetings.  I am still full-time Mary Yonkers
