Being in Real Estate has it's pros and cons. For me a con has always been life balance. It's really difficult to get away without the risk of losing clients.
Especially in a market like we are today where things are moving very quickly. It
requires you to act fast otherwise the person you are trying to help could
lose an opportunity.
Since I've been in Real Estate this has kept me from taking any real vacations, until now. I just took my son on a bucket list vacation to Sedona and the Grand Canyon. By the way if you have not been, go. Sedona is a beautiful place and the Grand Canyon is an amazing sight.
While on vacation my family suffered a major loss. This hit me pretty hard and made me realize the little time we have in this life. We can get so caught up in work, responsibilities and chasing something that has no end, that we forget to slow down and take time to just enjoy life and make memories.
If there is a trip, get away or even an activity that brings you joy that you have been putting off because you feel you lack the time, just do it. What you lack is the amount of time you have left.
