I am writing from a place where I can say, I have been there.  Right where you are and I am here today to tell you it is going to be okay. But for you to get your answers, for your "luck" to change, you are going to have to open your mind to a new way of doing things and you are going to have to shift your mindset to possibilities.

There really is something behind this mindfulness movement you are hearing more about.  There truly is a value in investing time in reading and practicing habits that help you get a better understanding of who you really are as a person and what makes you tick.

I have been in property management for nearly 20 years and I have changed as a person.  Looking back I am blown away at all of the changes I went through as I advanced from leasing apartments to eventually overseeing multiple apartment communities with multiple clients to work with, to an inevitable "fall from grace" three years back that left me unemployed, and frankly unmotivated to work for nearly 5 months.

Get this.  I am only 37 years old.  I have a lot of time left in the game, and in moments where I was I at my lowest, most frustrated, I had no idea that having those experiences would benefit me in my journey to know myself better.  Bad days, bad bosses, dishonest employees, quick hires that turn in to HR nightmares...all feel like failures.  We can either learn from them or let them bring us down.

I saw a video on Facebook last night that inspired me to write this post today.  If you haven't  seen Will Smith's 3 Ways To Fail Youtube video, check it out.  This video is a 90 second lesson in life and a great kick start for you to open your mind to investing time in you.

If you are considering a future in property management, get ready for a challenge!  A career in property management can prove to be both financially rewarding and it can help you put your strengths to work!

As a 19 year veteran in the multi family housing industry, I have had a lot of challenges and even more wins to look back.  I often get inquiries from friends and family asking about job opportunities in apartment maintenance and management.

The first thing I suggest is to go out and "shop" apartment communities to get an idea what the day in the life of a leasing agent, apartment manager, maintenance staff or housekeeper is really like. 

If you live at an apartment community or know someone in leasing, reach out to those people and ask them what it's really like.  As for the good, the bad, and the ugly.

In an age of endless, free information, there are so many opportunities to test drive future careers, before taking the leap to pursue the next chapter in your professional life.

If you are a multi-tasker and like to wear a lot of different hats... Property Management could be for you!

If you are a people person, and value working with people and making a difference in your customers' days...even lives!  then Property Management could be for you!

If you love fixing things, building things and have an eye for detail... Property Management and maintenance could be a great fit for you!

Property management experience and great references can equate to job security and financial growth if you invest time in your personal development and love crushing business goals.

Have questions about getting your foot in the door with property management?  Just ask!
