Nearly two years since a post. Shame on me.
Truthfully, I am neither a writer nor a blogger. This blog become a bitch fest about the break up of relationship and was cheaper than therapy. I also delved a bit into self discovery.
A lot has happened and not much has happened. I think that I mentioned to Pennsylvania. First, I moved to the Lehigh Valley, then down to PA Dutch Country. I met a new guy and after awhile we bought a house together. That about explains the last two years in a nutshell.
I was recently laid off and that sent me on another journey of self discovery. I am approaching 40. What do I want to do with my life? I have gone about as far as I could go in my last career path (Administrative), not to mention I was bored as hell with it.
I did some soul searching and one of the things that I have always wanted to do was get into real estate. So, I emailed the realtor we used to buy our house and that opened up a dialog. We emailed back and forth and she set up an appointment to meet with “The Broker of Records” at her firm. She and I had a nice chat and she offered me a position on the spot. Now, all I have to do is get licensed to be a realtor. I start my classes in less than two weeks.
I have already started (trying) to network and get my “brand” out there. I just have to create a brand. I was told that I need a “niche” in order to stand out. I think I have mine. Or at least one of them. While looking for a house here in PA Dutch Country, we couldn’t find a gay realtor. In fact, our first realtor was quite ignorant, inappropriate, unprofessional and so we fired her. Then we met our second realtor who couldn’t care less that we were gay. Point is, googled as much as I could, and couldn’t find a LGBT friendly realtor in the entire area.
So, at least in the beginning, that will be my niche.
I have started another blog about Real Estate, a Facebook page and a Twitter. Currently, all are blank. I am more interested in getting names and such registered.
So, that pretty much is what I have been up to for the past two years.
