I want to share with you how I found success in real estate during a time when agents were leaving the industry in droves.

When my life got turned upside-down after that phone call in 2010, I made an important decision. I decided that the situation I was in was not going to define my life, or the path my family was on. Hardship and adversity were not going to have the final say. I told my kids that we were going to pick ourselves up and show the world that through God, hard work and determination anyone can succeed, not matter how difficult their situation.

The truth is, life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it.

With that in mind, I wanted to share the practical principles I applied to rise above my situation and become the top sales agent at Meybohm Real Estate, and develop a reputation as Augusta’s premier and top producing realtor.

1. Focus on Your “Why”

My “why” was providing for my 6 children (ages 1-15) and for them not to live as victims; What is your why? When you’re facing difficulty, it’s easy to give up or become a victim. Focusing on the thing that drives you will keep you from allowing that to happen.
