I plan to spend some time on the Camaro this evening...unless Nancy has amended my plan for me. We'll see.

I hope y'all have a great day!

Glad the boss's visit was uneventful!!! Have fun working on the camaro!!

Thanks, I will!! And thanks for asking about my career.

It is tough right now, not what I expected. School did not prepare me for the reality of being an independent contractor, in fact it teaches nothing about $. We learn about the reality of the business from our Brokers. I had no idea it called for aggressive sales tactics, my understanding was that it was a service type of sales, and that I would get more leads through my company. Therefore, we are struggling financially, and are having a tough time spending extra money on marketing my business, when there's nothing coming in. Add that to the fact that I haven't worked for 9 months.. there are monthly & annual fees that are very high.
I based my love for real estate on my experiences buying & selling, and didn't know the other side of things. I researched it, but there are laws about not discussing $, so I could only find out so much. I don't know that we can afford the fees while building my business. After I went to work for my broker, I was told that many agents are in the -$ for many years. It doesn't help that I don't know a lot of people here, much of the business is based on referrals. I am looking for supplemental income of my own right now.

Prayers would be appreciated!! =]

Thanks again for thinking of me! I'm trying to stay positive!!

Good morning, MMC!!

It's going to be another hot & humid day here in beautiful Eau Claire, WI. I'm praying for some rain to cool things down!!

What are your plans? What about your Labor Day weekend plans?

Time to take Harlowe on a walk, do some work on the computer, and go grocery shopping.

Hope you have a blessed day!!

xx

I just noticed the Christmas Top 100 is open for voting! I've already cast my vote. Can we cast more than one?

I voted for my all time favorite song (not just Christmas song, but song, period!) "All I Want for Christmas Is You" by Vince Vance and the Valiants. I've had that song stuck in my head. Can't wait to start listening to Christmas music. I start in October at some point, gradually adding it in and I just realized we are only a month out from that month!
