Debbie~ What a great question. When I have a REALLY bad day I start to question, "am I actually any good at this". I do think about getting out of the business, but then it blows over and something good happens and I'm reminded that I'm where I'm supposed to be.

Nope! I try to figure out what I could have done better. Sometimes, I think about how I could have better prepared my clients (sellers or buyers) up front, or checked to make sure they understood about what to expect at each stage of the transaction. The better they are able to listen to recommendations and negotiations when they get to that stage. Sometimes, I realize I could have been better organized about something that would have made life easier for me. There's always room for improvement! :)

When the time is right, getting out of the business is not a bad idea. One of the industry issues is that many real estate agents can not afford to retire because they have failed to save enough for retirement.

I think the longer you're in it the easier it becomes because you hear about so many horror stories from so many other associates that even your worst days start looking better and better in comparison. No one ever said being self employed was an easy journey.

I have had a fleeting thought but when I thought about being chained to a desk and not being free to make my business grow as I wanted it to grow the 30 second thought quickly leaves.

Since I am starting my 35 year I will say yes a few times. But never more than a fleeting thought and no real plan behind it. I do think now about what it wil be like when I retire in a few years. I will not be one of those working full time in real estate at 75. We have lots of rental properties so much of the time will be spent managing them.
