Is Life a Highway or a Long and Winding Road?

By
Real Estate Agent with Westcott Group Real Estate Company

 

1991, Tom Cochrane sang “Life is a highway…I want to ride it all night long.”  Life in general may be a highway, but for those in sales, life tends to be more of a “long and winding road,” full of twists and turns.  The life of a salesperson can be exciting one moment, and harrowing the next.  When things are good, living on commission can be exhilarating.  When things are slow, the thought of a regular paycheck suddenly becomes very appealing.   Unfortunately, we can’t have the best of both worlds.

I'm in for the long ride! And, as you said, when it's good, living on a commission is wonderful. When times are tough, a regular paycheck seems very appealing.

By the way, I know that's not the LIE or the Northern or Southern State Parkways, not only because of the mountains in the background, but also because there's no traffic! Oh how I miss my days living on the Island!

From the desk of David Dee,

Adam, good to see you around. I've been mia and recently came back myself. I also believe in multiple stream of income. It is the best way towards achieving health, wealth, and happyness. That's a nice take on the "Pursuit of Happyness". :D It is a long winding road and what you put into it will determine the length of the journey. It is more than just a destination.

Adam.... love this song, the notations... I know it has it's ups and downs and I love that I can get up and go too! We are lucky, but if we keep the exposure out there we can keep it steady ;) Some people just stop all together... Too bad for them!

Good Luck and be you! Don't know what happened(from a blog I read), but stay TRUE to you! I posted on my FB recently, "let the negative people go, they only bring negative and delete them off your FB too! I have 591 other friends ;)" and I know you do too :)
