Today is the day! My Real Estate 101 course is available for purchase (scroll down for an awesome discount code!) I've thought about this day for well over a year. At the end of my first year in real estate I had to pinch myself, wondering if what I thought had just happened, had happened. It was a crazy end to a crazy year.
I was hugely pregnant and not sure if we'd have insurance when it came time for Luke's c-section. Scot's company had been acquired 9 months previously and during that time, we literally had no idea when they'd decide to close the Arizona operations. The good news was that they wanted to keep him, the bad news was they'd need us to move to San Antonio, Texas.
I wasn't wholly opposed to moving, but, for the life of me, I couldn't get the numbers on this move to make sense. While Scot's career had the potential to grow with the move, it would utterly tank mine. Suddenly, my real estate career was a viable reason NOT to move, even if Scot couldn't secure another job.
Never before had we charted these territories.
Through the process of deciding, I realized I did not want to put my fate in the hands of another company, in a different city, with a new baby on the way. Never has a company taken care of my family. Never have I been able to control what decisions they make in the board room. Never have they put us ahead of themselves. They never have and they never will and I get it. This isn't to bash the company he was with, they were always very good to him, but business is business.
What I did know was that even if Scot wanted to take a year off, I could support our family.
He didn't love that idea, and I agreed it was our 'worst case scenario' but can you imagine the freedom that brings to the table? Suddenly our backs weren't against the wall. We didn't HAVE to accept the move. We didn't HAVE to depend on this company. We didn't even HAVE to have Scot working.
Holy heck. I'd been in real estate one year, and suddenly these were my options?!? Imagine if I had decided to sit on the sidelines one more year?!?
So we chose to stay. We gritted our teeth, and turned down the move, without another job on the table. Marching forward, we prepared for the worst, and hoped for the best. Thankfully, after that decision a new job appeared on the horizon and just like we bought this house & accepted a new job on the same day, this time we had a baby & accepted a new job in the same month. Go big or go home I suppose.
All of our circumstances are different, but I think we can we all agree that our circumstances can change on a dime. Real estate is my way of being prepared. I don't ever have to rely on a company again and that feels so good. It's my way of taking care of myself and my family. It's my 'back-up' plan that can also be my main plan if I need it to be.
And now, I want to help you open up your options. I want you to experience what I've experienced. I can assure you it will make you feel uncomfortable. I can assure you it will keep you up some nights and I can assure you it will be the best thing you ever did.
I cannot think of another industry where you have the opportunity to grow as fast as you can in real estate. So come join me as we grow together.
My first Real Estate 101 course will be on Thursday January 17th from 7pm - 9pm and guys, I'm hosting it at MY HOUSE. I debated a couple different options, but I just want you in my home. It's where I feel the most comfortable and where I think we'll be able to get to know each other the best. We'll have a soda bar & appetizers and then we'll get to learning.
Tickets will include the live 2-hour course, along with course workbook...& there might be a special surprise in here as well, if the stars align! On top of that, we'll be creating a private Facebook Group -- which will be such a HUGE source of strength. This is the place where I'll be popping in once a month throughout the year with monthly goals and motivation. This is the place you'll come when you have a hiccup in a deal & you're not sure what to do. This is the place you'll come when you hit your 10th closing for the year & we'll celebrate with you!
I know SO many were hoping for a digital ticket to the event & I just can't quite guarantee that that will turn out like I want, so I'm not going to offer that up this go around. What I am considering, is offering access to our Private Facebook Group -- would this be of interest?!? Please leave a comment below, DM me, email me, something so I'm aware you want it and I'll get that worked out.

Hi, I'm Amy. When I'm not scouring the valley for the perfect new house, you can usually find me in the kitchen with a gaggle of kids. Chips, salsa and a Diet Coke are usually in hand.
