OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

OUT OF MY COMFORT ZONE

“If you want to succeed you should strike out on new paths, rather than travel the worn paths of accepted success.” – John D. Rockefeller

I know I have not posted much lately and it is due partly to the new and exciting change in my life.  I’m not talking about a man…. it’s all about success!  I just left one of those big national, highly successful, firms to join a smaller firm.  Although moving 7 years of files and 7 years of stuff from my comfortable, cozy office was very stressful, I know I will be happy and successful at this new company.  Leads are coming in left and right, and yesterday I showed property to three different customers.  It felt like 6 years ago, before the market tanked.

Between the work I do for a specific bank on short sales and now all the leads I am receiving from this new firm,  between what I have learned and what I am now learning, I believe my life is going to change dramatically for the better.  Watch out Gainesville, here I come!

About Mme Jocelyne

Hi, I'm a transplanted northerner–(born and raised in New York to French immigrants–Oui je parle Francais)-living in Florida for 20 years. In the 70's I worked as a realtor in the Bronx – City Island to be exact. Then I started a family and didn't keep up my license. I aspired to a career in architecture, so I went to New York Institute of Technology for three years, moved to Florida and finished my degree at the University of Florida in Gainesville. After 10 years of working in my dream career I sustained an injury to my shoulder. This injury never healed because I was constantly on the computer doing cad design. I finally decided to make a career change – something where I could use my training as an architect. Needless to say, I was worried – where will the money come from? How will I be able to afford my career change? But, I put my faith in God and went for it. It’s the best move I ever made, other than my husband, children and dogs.

    • Is selling stove pipe your new occupation that put you out of your comfort zone? If you went from one sales position to another, I think you’ll be fine, just give it about 1 month. That’s what it took for me.
