La Quinta California Real Estate

The financial ironies of the real estate business

I have been selling real estate for almost 15 years. I have learned over the years that it is very ironic that when we have alot of business, we have no time or energy to spend money on ourselves like travel, massages, nails, hair, clothes, home remodel, new car, etc.When we are not busy, we have the time, but it is hard to spend money when you do not see any flowing in. Through the years, I have learned that it does all work out. I keep prospecting each and everyday and then livemy life. I do travel, get massages, nails, hair, new car, etc. on a regular basis. I am conservative, but enjoy the fruits of my labor.
