What does your dream life look like? Are you currently living your dream or still working on it?
My dream life for me is to have financial freedom, be stress-free and have time to focus on myself and my family. No, I’m not currently living my dream life but I will be there soon.
This year, I had to reevaluate why I started my business and decided that I was going to go back to my Why. I started my business to have a flexible schedule so I could focus more on my family. I lost myself in the Busyness of my business.
Tell me about the work you do and who you help.
I am a licensed Real Estate Broker Owner. I empower people to gain financial freedom through Real Estate. I created a group called The Homebuyers Clubhouse to give back to the community and teach people about the home-buying process. We also discuss ways to change your mindset, saving, investing and financial freedom.
What inspired you to get started?
My family! I worked in retail for almost 13 years. I worked 10+ hours a day. In 2014, I found out that I had cancer. I knew then that life was short and I couldn’t spend every minute of it at work. I got my license in 2015 and never looked back!
What’s a challenge you’ve faced along your entrepreneurial journey?
Whewwwww!!! As I mentioned earlier, I lost focus and I forgot my Why. I wanted to do a business inside my business, inside my business, inside my business! Instead of focusing on one big thing. I’m a little shy and I didn’t want to network and I didn’t want to meet new people outside of my clients.
In 2020, I created my Home Buyers group which helped my business take off just by helping people. Last year, I decided to put my big girl panties on and network more, have events so I could meet people outside of them seeing me LIVE on Facebook.
I realized that people really appreciated me and my voice. I’m always a little hesitant and a little shy but my business has benefited from it.
Earlier this year, my business started off slow because again I was focusing on writing a book and having events last year and I forgot about running my business. Doing many things here and there I lost sight of “Real Estate.”
I had a very slow year Jan-March but once I focused on my Why, creating a schedule, and sticking to it, I managed to close over $2M in two months with over $3M total sales/pending for the year.
Has being an introvert affected your business?
Yes, I think that I could be more successful if I would have stepped outside of my comfort zone much earlier. My heart is in the right place and people love to hear my ideas. I’m a work in progress.
I pray that I come out of this shell very soon. I’m in the “people business.” I like people–it’s just hard for me to go out and meet them.
What methods do you use to bring in new customers?
Facebook Groups & Ads
Is attending networking events a part of your marketing strategy?
No, but it should be. I’m working on doing it more.
How do you define success for yourself and your business?
Financial freedom, family, and healthy. If I have those things in order we are good!
My goal is to invest and let my business work for me. Once I do that, my next step is to create affordable housing.
What advice would you give to other introverted women just starting their own businesses?
Network! You have to do it! Stop trying to recreate the wheel. Focus on growing that one thing for at least 6 months. Create systems and follow up. You have to stay top of mind.
