Everyone loves a fresh start right? It’s a chance to leave the past behind and move forward in the right direction. You aim for bigger and better things. Nothing can stop you because you are living the dream! Yeah that’s not me. I am not a huge fan of starting anew. I take comfort in knowing what is going to happen everyday and staying in routine. Oh monotony how I love you! Recently I stepped out of my comfort zone and left my job as an educational assistant with the local school board to become a real estate agent. Scary? Oh yes, for a variety of reasons. The first being that there will be no more reliable pay cheques every two weeks. I really looked forward to those. The second is that I have to talk to people. Like people I have never met. I bet you are thinking “so you got into a sales position and are now just realizing you have to talk to strangers?” Yes that is exactly what is happening. For those that have met me you know that I am pretty shy so this is a big step for me! So as scary as it has been I have to say that I LOVE it! I am having so much fun learning the ins and outs of the business, helping people find their dream homes and yes meeting new people and developing new relationships. Turns out monotony isn’t my thing after all. This is a brand new adventure that will allow me to spend more time with my kids, be my own boss and most important to my husband…I will have more time to bake his favourite goodies. So you see taking a leap is good for all!
