AboutI opened my own brokerage at 24 years old after just two and a half years in the business. Some thought it was too soon, too much risk, or a mistake to take on the burden. I knew my heart and that it was something I had to go for to continue to work towards the next level. It has been the most liberating and rewarding decision I have made, and I would do it again 100 times over. Believing in yourself and taking calculated risks is what it takes to separate yourself from the pack. I think it’s important to always be a little bit outside of your comfort zone when it comes to goals and taking action. It’s easy to dream and plan, but taking action is the hard and uncomfortable part. I like to live by the motto, “Everything you want is on the other side of fear.” Mistakes might be made, money might be lost, but the reward can be so much more valuable than anything that might go wrong.
