I opened my own real estate company in July of 2015 (The Key Group, Fayetteville, NC). It was a total leap of faith, and as a family, we put everything on the line. While visiting my parents in Charleston, South Carolina for a day, we found The Giving Keys, and the word, Courage stood out to me. I needed the courage to move forward and give my business my all, rather than have the fear of failure. In keeping my courage, my company is succeeding, growing, and nearing its second year in business.
Flash forward to early 2017 – I'm interviewing a potential agent for my company. She has an inexplicable fear of leaving her current company, though they refuse to allow her to grow, and she is unhappy there. It dawned on me I no longer need courage, she does. Today, as a surprise when I see her, I am going to give her my key to courage, in hopes she chooses the path that will lead to her happiness and financial success; whether that means joining my company or not. I want her to have the courage to choose to work towards the life she deserves, not the life she feels obligated to honor.
