So, last weekend I decided to go out because I originally plan on attending a training in relation to Real Estate. Sadly, the traffic was bad and I missed it. But I wouldn’t want to waste the long travel for nothing. I had to make my day worthy. I decided to just go to Driven Marketing’s office and was secretly hoping to see familiar faces that could turn my day brighter.
For some reason, I opened the door and it felt home. There were a lot of people (newbies, I might say), but there were few familiar faces and it was enough for me to breathe normally. We shook hands, hugged, said our hellos and I sat down.
Even if I joined the group years ago, I felt new. Most probably because, those who joined the same year I did, are now earning millions. I am not exaggerating OK? And that was like what – 4 years ago?! I thought to myself, “If I haven’t stopped, I think I would see my portrait in that ‘self- made- millionaires- wall’ in the office.” But there’s no time to think about the past, all I need to think about is the future. Isn’t that right?
I was lucky I was able to sit beside Ed Federico. He is a fellow broker who left his corporate job and pursued Real Estate. Man oh Man, he is doing great and I was inspired by his stories. His perseverance, determination and good heart is the perfect formula for making it big – and I am more than willing to follow his footsteps.
Meanwhile, my mother in Driven was there too. She’s Ms. Maricar and currently holds the record for selling a HEFTY multi – million property. I couldn’t give you the figures but let’s just say, the commission is more than enough for me to buy my own unit. So yes, that big! Ms. Maricar is very accommodating and her hug reassured me that I am still welcome in the group. Indeed, I am with family.
I don’t want to make this post long so I’d go directly to my point.
I know I have been bragging about my online job and how internet makes my life easier. But you know what – meeting your friends and mentors in person is far better than virtual hugs and text messages. The facial expressions that go with their stories are more meaningful and it will move you even more.
Yes, I suggest that you go out!
