I've been there, too...
I understand how you feel because I’m a working mom with two young children, juggling to find life’s perfect balance of being the best mom and wife, and succeeding in my career, without sacrificing time with my family or having mom guilt.
It was the Summer that my daughter was turning 2 years old when we enrolled her in her first dance class. A mommy and me class, that was scheduled once a week on Saturday mornings.
It was during that time that I had taken on a listing with a seller who strongly suggested I hold an open house the next Saturday - because she believed that the home would sell that day.
In the past, before my daughter was born, I was happy to hold open houses for sellers. As a way to market their home and meet new prospective buyers.
But as the weekends started filling up with family fun events, it was getting tougher to pull me away from family to go work.
I held the open house.
But I missed my daughter’s dance class that Saturday morning - the one that I was supposed to be at with her because it’s a mommy and me class.
Talk about mom guilt! I felt like a terrible mother for missing her class.
I constantly felt the pressure of being pulled in too many directions at one time.
Being a new mom brought a ton of new responsibilities to my life that I never knew existed.
I quickly learned that time was no longer unlimited, with children in the picture. I was exhausted trying to work during the pockets of my day, just so I could have more quality time with my family, and then ended up working during family time anyway when a customer called.
It was at that moment, I had decided I no longer wanted to trade my family hours for dollars.
I wanted to be included in making those special memories with my family.
After all, isn’t this what life is all about?
But, how was I going to do that when I was taught to find new customers through open houses, cold calling, and door knocking, which was better to do outside of the Monday through Friday 9 to 5 business hours?
How was I going to compete with all the other agents who were available on the weekends and evenings?
I had a baby at home that I wanted to care for and provide for and I was constantly worried about how to find my next customer, where my next paycheck was coming from, and how I was going to make it all happen, with very limited time (and sleep!).
I knew there had to be a better way to be a successful real estate agent AND mom, without feeling burned out on both ends.
So, I started searching the internet for answers on how to generate real estate leads online.
I spent countless hours learning and investing thousands of dollars into my business.
I invested in coaching to sharpen my skills and scripts.
I developed well-thought-out plays to generate new leads online, without holding open houses, cold calling or door knocking, and a plan to cultivate a strong foundation of loyal customers, with templates, checklists, and calendars to keep everything moving forward.
And then, I started putting the plans into action and I began to see results, instantly.
My text messages and DM’s were ringing, and my inbox was filling up with offers.
Through trial and error, coaching guidance, and a ton of hard work with a positive attitude to keep going and figure this out, I was finally able to develop a game plan that worked.
I only wish that someone had given me this blueprint to follow years ago before I googled until my fingernails broke!
I was no longer feeling stressed about where my next sale and paycheck would come from, because with a clear path in place I knew where to turn to get new leads, and what to say to engage them into becoming lifelong customers.
The best part? I didn’t have to sacrifice my family time to do it.
In other words, I could now breathe a sigh of relief.
