This is our truth; the reason we get up in the morning. I love everything about real estate and Jeanne loves everything about marketing. We both love everything about business and we have a passion for helping others, especially women.
We know for a fact that being self employed has endless benefits. You control your time, expenses and income, just to name a few. We would not trade it for anything. Yes, it has its challenges too. You don’t have someone else telling you what to do or when to do it and that can be scary. You have to learn to set boundaries and manage your time better than ever before. You will make hard decisions about when and where to spend your money. You will learn so many new things, there will be days when you feel like your head is going to explode! Before long you are addicted to learning, growing and finding ways to better serve your clients. You will see yourself with new eyes and for us that makes it all worth while.
Everything in life has risk, driving a car, having a job or being self employed. Nothing is guaranteed to anyone. Does this make life fair or unfair? Who knows.
I love the old saying ‘an entrepreneur will work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours for someone else.’ The reason? Freedom! No glass ceiling, equal pay. Need I say more?
Between the two of us we have been self employed more that 35 years. We have had our ups and our downs, our challenges and our rewards. It’s not just about money, it’s being able to plan your work around your kids or taking care of a sick parent. It’s about helping your clients and having them refer their friends and family to you. It’s the relationships you build with others and with yourself.
The women we know who work for themselves seem to have a strong sense of self. They know they are not perfect but they also know they are enough. They believe in themselves, are open and not afraid to ask for help. This in and of itself is a form of freedom.
We are looking forward to helping you grow and helping you grow your business. We will share tips and how to’s on all kinds of things from why do you need a business face book page to how to keep your expenses organized. We are looking forward to helping you make 2017 your best year ever!
