My old amiga Anna Laveria-May, President Elect of Women's Council of REALTORS, invited me to kick off the year with my appearance at their chapter's first meeting of 2011. Anna May & I met many moons ago during our modeling days. When she introduced me, she busted out with an old tearsheet from a photo shoot we did at an airport! So embarrassing!
My speech was about my favorite topic. It's a 4 letter word and starts with an "F".....FEAR. It runs rampant in the real estate community: Fear of getting started, fear of competition, fear of success. But, it all boils down to the fear of being yourself. We resist embracing ourselves so much in this stiff business. You can't be successful as a realtor unless you are true to yourself. Believe in yourself & nothing can touch you! Take my word for it!
After MC-ing the White Elephant auction, I raffled off a Kodak Easy Share M580 Digital Camera! Great for shooting listings!
