Relocate to Wisconsin

The First Olive Out of the Jar....

 Working with people on a new program I was reminded of what we like to call our "Momisms"  ....she had so many great expressions that always seemed to fit the situation and we hear ourselves echoing them and the stream of memories returning that she has left us for a lifetime.

    When you think about a different way to do lead are a newbie to the in real estate or lending...or any allied field...there are soooo many "first times" that you list a house...that you write a Olivescontract....that you approach a potential client.  Any first time experience can be a little daunting. 

     Mom said: "The first olive out of the jar is always the hardest." It IS !   Until you get past the first is difficult...there is some lack of confidence....a little fear mixed in with a lot of "what if's"......and one you get that first olive and the have that taste of success.....the rest will follow. Mom you were right Jar of Olives(again)'s true !  Stick with it, ask for advice, back your career with education....coaching if you wish....however you choose to learn...Knowledge is power...Power is confidence....and makes those olives start to tumble....and your goal of a "first" becomes many, many successes to follow.
   This is a professional positive post brought to you courtesy of Sally K. & David L. Hanson, Broker Associates with Keller Williams Realty honored to be serving southeastern Wisconsin and "Mom" Vera L. Repa who wish you all great success in every new endeavor.
