Long time ago set boundaries in BUSINESS & PERSONAL for my sake and the sake of others. Without boundaries, more of the animal nature comes out

It goes on and on and they are boundaries that accumulated naturally from lessons learned, trial and error. I love the way I run my business actually, it protects me, my family and truly serves my kind of clients. 😊

Give them the best of you, not what's left of you!

Didn't you ask this before? Work NEVER interferes with family or faith. I could be offered a zillion dollar deal on a Sunday and I'd tell them to take a hike.

ALWAYS. My time is valuable and I have hours I do and do not work.

That encompasses everything, really.

Boundaries were set from Day 1 in Real Estate.  It was one of the first things taught in Real Estate School and the instructor even taught a class focused on marriage and partnerships remaining healthy.  It was very much appreciated by all and we all learned that real estate is not a 24/7 business if you want to be successful in life.

My "boundaries" adjust to what's going on, what interests me, etc.  I was never much for being rigid in my life, I would have missed out on a lot of adventures.
