Real Estate and Motherhood
Battling the mental cost of entrepreneurship has been the biggest fight of my life. Not only did I grow from a hustler of a 9 to 5 to an entrepreneur and convert my inner self to adjust to all Corporate America was bringing to the table; but I also became a first-time mother. I was pregnant, motivated, and determined to give the new life I was bringing into this world the best life I could. I was excited about having purpose and vision again. I was ready to take on the world by offering the great person I was through services to others. Little did I know, motivation and determination were the least of what it took to maintain a stable mindset. The reality of building a prosperous business that would continue to excel through the years to come was about to face me in the blink of an eye.
