Confessions of a REALTOR...

 

- Get your license.
- Hang it at a brokerage that promises you everything.
- Assume people will just “find you” and give you money.
- Make a fancy website.
- Borrow 5k to pay for it.
- Beg your friends for referrals.
- Borrow another 5k cause you’re not getting enough closings to pay the bills.
- Read a million blog posts that don’t really tell you anything.
- Contemplate getting a day job cause this ain’t working.
- Tell yourself you’ll never give up.
- Work 12 hours a day doing pointless crap everyone else tells you to do.
- Ugly cry cause it ain't workin’
- Hire a marketing company for $1,000 / month.
- Lose $1,000 on that marketing company b/c they have no idea what they’re doing.
- Hire another marketing company b/c "this time it’ll be different." 
- Fire them after 2 months.
- Resort to paying Zillow for leads in your zip code.
- Feel like it’s working and you finally got it.
- Realize their leads aren't great either and they aren't leading to more closings.
- Tell everyone you’re more successful than you are.
- Tell your friends everything is fine and nothing is wrong at all.
- Your appointment book is basically empty.
- Contemplate quitting again, this time for real though… you can’t take it anymore.
- See everyone else being successful because they’re using REAL systems to grow their business.
- Try one more time to make it work because, well, “If they can do it you can do it.”
- 6 months later you’re still stuck.
- Get drunk.
- That’s it, it’s over…
- Have to get a real job.
- Life sucks.
- Get drunk every Friday cause...
- Ruin your future.
- Spouse, Grammy, Gramps, Mom and Dad are all disappointed.
