That's a lot of swords

This the fourth swords drawn this week.  Wonder what is up with that? 

The company that I hold my license with is expanding and growing, so much so we are moving to a larger facility.  I work mostly at home so this does not effect me much.  We had a meeting and a tour of the new building yesterday and and about two-thirds of the agents with the company were there and about two-thirds those are brand new to the business.  So much wide-eyed enthusiasm, so much expectancy in their faces as they begin this new phase of their careers.  I used to tell people when I first began my real estate sales career that if I knew what I was getting into, I would never have gotten in the business. If they knew the failure rate I expect most would give it a pass.  Still we don't find ourselves by sitting on the sidelines.   I would like to rediscover that zeal for something new.  That passion to begin anew.
Maybe this Page can show me the way.  There is a New Moon Saturday that aupiciously marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year, which bases the year on Lunar phases.  So maybe that's the energy of all the swords this week.

  1. We had to go to the state capitol for our exam. There were four of us. One of the most exciting results was the mailbox full of offers of employment. Very ego soothing. It didn't take long to figure out their reasoning. Without much investment they brought in newbies that had at least one listing in them. Then they'd fade away. I think car salesmen are the worst for never being there when you go back for another car.

    1. An 80% failure rate. The old 80/20 rule. Then the 80/20 applies to the 20% that did survive. It is a challenging business.

  2. I hope you will find a new passion this year Carolyn. Or maybe find a new spark of life in what you already know or have

    1. It is. A pretty typical RWS spin off and yet the work art relays just a bit different take.

  4. This is a good post. The 80 20 rule is sensible. What would you like to do? Xx

    1. I think I would have been a fairly good book editor. I used to love to read, now not as much, still more than others. I have always been very good at customer relations and I am pretty good at sales but don't have much enthusiasm for all the tom foolery. Now at 60 I would like easy breezy days. I could write but I probably would not get the book done before something else caught my attention. Like others I am a bit resistant to change.
