(13:26) And I remember going in locking the door and I literally kind of fell to the ground and just started bawling my eyes out. I had a real breakdown in that house to the point where I was just like, ‘Why am I doing this?’
(13:51) I’ve told everybody that I’m going to be successful in this and be this real estate agent when everybody’s telling me not to do it because the market was bad. And here I am.
(14:32) Moving forward, anything that I did, I would never, never, never allow it to get to that position again.
(14:46) I’m still picking myself up today, but we are soaring in and it’s totally different now.
(17:45) I didn’t go looking for a shortcut.
(20:38) At that point I was living it through the lens. I was letting people in. I was letting people see and I was being transparent about it, which I’ve always been nowadays,
(23:14) I’m not really worried about being the biggest. I know that I’m not the smallest, but I’m just me.
(25:06) I just assumed that my family was always going to refer people to me and my friends
(32:22) I’m building a business. Of course, I’m building an organization. I’m building an office and I’m also building a legacy and that’s something that I wasn’t doing before.
(35:44) Just follow the process, follow what’s already laid out and it will work out,
