I am sitting here on the couch, marinating in candlelight, a Real Housewives of Atlanta rerun and the fact that I just finished my third and final real estate course, as required by the California Department of Real Estate for salesperson licensing! Wow, that was a long sentence but boy it felt good to type out!
Now my upcoming plans entail submitting my application and required documentation for my state examination, which appears like it won’t happen until after our December trip to Costa Rica, due to a high volume of applications being submitted to the CalDRE (their words, not mine). Oh well, it will happen eventually. Really wish it would happen on the sooner side, so I could finally put all of this studying behind me and actually start learning about buying and selling properties but I know it will all come together in due time. Thankfully I am not relying on this new real estate pursuit as my sole income-producing career so I don’t have that kind of stress on me right now. While I wouldn’t mind leaving my day (and night) job right now, real estate will be essentially a supplement to my life at this point. If and when it turns into something more, I will reassess and make those vital decisions then.
Thankfully, I have the utmost support from those around, just as I do for every decision, crossroads or hiccup I have ever had in life. Not only do my parents always support and cheer me on through it all, but Hugo also pushes and encourages me, despite the current goal on my plate. I have said it before and I will continue to say it again – I am so thankful for the love and confidence they have in me. Without them, I would be nothing and I truly believe that.
