Feeling a little lost

Have you ever struggled to figure out who you are at any given moment?

If you’re seeing this, you know my husband, and family and I just moved from Mississippi all the way back home to Wisconsin. Moving there and starting over was the biggest blessing. We both grew in so many ways. We matured, we grew, we built a family and we even built businesses together. We learned and experienced so much, and even though it was SO HARD, I am so grateful for it. So, when we chose to move back, I knew it would be just like starting over again. I was both excited and nervous, but we knew it was the right choice. Plus, we had done it before. We would do it again.

What I wasn’t expecting, is the loss of who I am that I’ve experienced as of late. I am a KICKASS real estate agent, and I OWN that, because of my success in marketing. Combining and choosing which direction to go in though, that has been difficult for me. I love real estate. I’m good at real estate, but I am not sure where that fits me here. I know I want to help other agents achieve the success I had, and even more, but I’m not sure if I am ready to sell homes. Would I kill it? Sure would, but something just has me in a spot I don’t know what to do.

I tested, passed, and even sent in to get my license here. I found an office and everything. Even went to a few meetings. Somehow, I missed a signature on my application here (it’s almost funny if you think of it.) and it made me think, is this what I want to do. Don’t get me wrong. I KNOW I want to be in marketing. It is the reason I was a great car saleswoman. It’s the reason I built and sold a successful Property management company. It’s the reason I built a successful real estate brokerage and career. I just don’t know where real estate fits here, and it’s a truly weird place to be for me.

So, as my team and I are looking to get a great base for some new branding/branding tweaks for myself, I thought to share these feelings. Not because anyone needs to know, but because I’ll bet I’m not the only one who has been confused with what they’re doing or where they are. I know I’m on the right path, but how does one mentally prepare to start over again? How does one prepare to move cross country? You can’t really. But we will get through it!

*Shout out to all my military families, particularly the spouses who have to uproot and change, maybe leave a career or friends. It is hard, but it makes us stronger.
