My "other" job {Tuesday’s Toddler Tales linky}

Being a mom is a full time job…regardless of how anybody else views it.  But, many of you may not know, I have another job, one that actually pays me money {sometimes}.  I have had a few different jobs over the years.  My first job was as a cashier for Kmart.  I was a supervisor and also worked in the cash office.  I love counting money!  Then, I few different teaching jobs with all ages from infant up through 5th grade.  I left teaching for a year to be a mail carrier.  Then, I quit and went back to teaching at the church I had been at before.  I love teaching, I love kids, and it comes naturally to me.

However, that isn’t my “other” job.  I am a real estate agent.  I don’t do tons of business and mostly work with people I know, or people who have been recommended to me.  I enjoy this job, especially because my kids can come with me to work.  I use to really market to find new clients, but after I had Maggie, I was working with a few different clients who wanted to see a ton of houses which I toted Maggie along to, and when all was said and done, they just plain decided not to buy.  Now, don’t get me wrong, I will show a million houses to find somebody that perfect house, but I got tired of clients just bailing for no reason.  I assume that if you are having me show you houses, then you fully intend to buy one unless something happens.  So now, I only do referrals for the most part, there are a few exceptions.

So, that’s my “other” job.  Selling real estate with two kids in tow.  It’s fun, and exciting to share in that experience with other people.  Plus, I have a couple of realtor in trainings!
