So, you want to be an artist?
When you’re an artist, you starve. Your belly is full of flies.
Instead, be a REALTOR®.
REALTORS® don’t need to worry about where their next meal will come from. They never sit there hoping for a house to sell or spend time on lead capture (which, if you’re a REALTOR® and an artist, maybe you should learn how to capture leads? Or not...), or web design, or social media campaigns or...
A REALTOR® is free. A REALTOR® is transcendent. Their commission comes without effort. And they will always be willing to work for free if it means exposure and a major audience.
They don’t need a website. They will JUST BE FOUND. Clients flock to their office like thirsty antelope. IN FACT, they can magically summon clients whenever they need money. It’s fantastic being a REALTOR®.
So, why be an artist when a REALTOR® is what the world expects. Your friends and family will say, “My so-and-so is a REALTOR®” and they will imagine someone who rests on their laurels with a mimosa in their hand and a calculator in their lap.
Put down your brush and take up the For Sale Sign. Your life will be “respectable” and your pocketbook magically full.
