Two years ago I packed up my life (including Namo), left a six year real estate career, cashed my last commission check and moved from Denver to the Larkspur ranch.
Well-intentioned friends, family and colleagues advised me to keep my real estate license “just in case” and “as a backup”.
But my intuition said something different. It told me to cut off the golden handcuffs and go for it. After three and a half years of working in real estate and building Beyond the Arena simultaneously, it was time to make the leap.
So I did. I was bound and determined to never have the phrases “Outstanding curb appeal” and “Light and bright kitchen” come out of my mouth again.
And I’m happy to report they have not. Not even “Brand new stamped concrete patio, perfect for entertaining.”
After years of trying to be who I thought I should be, I began living my life in alignment with who I really am…a woman who is much happier helping people find their personal worth vs. the worth of their home.
Being true to yourself is about going for what you want, not what you think you “should” want based on the expectations of your friends, your spouse, your kids, your relatives, or your colleagues.
Following your dreams requires risk, uncertainty and courage. It is the road less traveled, and if you’re reading this far I know you’ve got a calling…even if you’re not living it yet.
It may not happen overnight but it will happen over time if you never give up, believe in yourself, get support, take risks, find mentors, and give it everything you’ve got.
BELIEVE IN YOURSELF AND TRUST YOUR INTUITION. It will guide you, one step (and leap), at a time.
