You. Are. Not. Stuck.
One of the most frustrating things I come across working with you guys is the Agent who believes that they are not able to make moves.
The fear of not finding another job.
The fear of landing in an Agency even WORSE than the one they're in.
The fear of having to tell the family that you're changing jobs or seeking something new.
And while I would never invalidate anyone's feelings or opinion on anything because a feeling is personal, the actual fear is misplaced.
We are in one of, if not the MOST, fluid industries out there.
30-50% of all Agents in your area are hiring at all times.
They may not be advertising it. You may not find it on Monster.com, Indeed.com, or another job site, but if you walked in with a positive attitude, your resume, a brag book showcasing your numbers, and with contagious enthusiasm, most Agents will think long and hard about giving you a chance.
Look around your office. There is a good chance you are either by yourself and you need to grow. Or maybe you are there with a few people and at least ONE of them REALLY SUCKS at closing sales (and your Agent knows it). Or maybe there is someone toxic that is just being dealt with because they produce. And this is happening in EVERY OFFICE.
As Agents, we are taught to always be looking out for our next great team member. Some captives push their Agents to have one more person employed than they feel they need because they are always on the verge of potentially losing talent and it's better to be a little overstaffed and pushing than it is to be constantly hiring and behind.
Point is this. You are not stuck.
You may feel stuck.
You may think you are stuck.
But you are not stuck.
If you need a change of scenery do not be afraid of exploring it.
Right now, more than ever, we have Agents all around the country facilitating a remote opportunity, building large teams, flexible with remote learning, or are open to helping you deal with whatever issues you feel hold you back in your career right now, even if its just a good old change of scenery.
I wanted to plant this seed in all of your heads.
If you are unhappy we are in one of the most fluid industries in the world and there is no one and nothing keeping you there but you.
Find happiness in your career.
Don't allow yourself to stay stuck.
