Why did you make the switch from human resources to real estate?
“I found myself looking at my own future and where I would go. I didn’t think I could go anywhere in human resources and I didn’t love any of the other job opportunities. I knew I wanted to do sales, I just didn’t know what that was. I think what I was yearning for was being my own boss. I really just wanted to work for myself… and I needed that very drastic change from where I was.”
What is your next career goal?
“My next goal in terms of my career is I want to be in some way shape or form an inspirational or motivational speaker. My favorite part of my old job was when I was on campus with 50 or 60 students, helping them make the next step in their career. My career goal is in hopefully five to 10 years is experience enough things and reach my own goals so that I can inspire other people to do that as well.”
