This year has gone by so fast! It’s hard to believe that today is December 29th already, (which is also my mother’s birthday) when it seems like just yesterday that we were celebrating the holidays.
I may not be posting for a while. I’ve always wanted to work in real estate, but not as an agent, and am now learning about real estate investing. I’m starting my own business, hoping to make some extra money to pay for my surgery and any additional health care procedures or costs that may occur in 2015.
One of the reasons I’m doing this (I’m the one learning and working with a mentor), is so that my husband will day be able to retire and work on both our manuscripts and our real estate business.
One blessing I’m grateful for is the practice I have from writing in both my fictional manuscripts and my blog posts for the last five years. While I was interviewing for this mentor’s program, they asked to me write down in an email what my goals were for the next year, and why I wanted to learn real estate and start a new business, in 20 – 30 minutes, so they could read my answer before our last phone call.
It suddenly seemed like I was a contestant on a reality T.V. show, and I was so nervous. But not because of the writing part. That seemed easy; I was nervous because of this new opportunity in a completely different field.
I’ve been studying, (and would be now if their website wasn’t down), and learning such clever and creative ideas on how to invest in real estate without using any of my money. My mind is able to grasp this new knowledge and seems to be sharpening my memory. I miss writing in my fictional world, and hope that my husband and I will one day work together. Side by side on the couch with our own lap tops, each writing our part of the story. I’ll try to write when I can, and post here as I settle into this new business.
