On the above title, it can describe lots of things in life. Probably money matters, your ‘screwed-up’ business, Friendship that was forgotten, oh your Love life… well, for me, I’m going through the tough times for my career.
For those who are following me on my social media accounts; Facebook, Twitter, IG- I oftentimes posted about my new work as a Corporate Area Specialist in Avida, an Ayala Land Company. In Filipino layman’s term it’s ‘Ahente ng Bahay’.
To give you an idea, we are licensed ‘seller’ or ‘Real Estate Salesperson’ that undergoes accreditation from Professional Regulatory Commission or PRC and as well as HLURB or Housing and Land Use Regulatory Board. In Avida, they are giving their sellers 3 months for their allowance ( 24k including the 1k for Insurance).
Yes, you heard it right! Avida has the addition ‘Bucks’ for their sellers. Being a Real State Agent can turn you to a millionaire once you sold many units (I.e. Condominium, House and Lot, Lot, also Office Spaces). We have 1% commission plus incentives and quarterly deals.
I encountered success stories of a Seller in the company. One of that, is my childhood friend Jane who referred me to try Avida. At first, I liked what I am doing since I have my own time. You can manage your own time, not the usual 9am to 5pm office.
But things changed as I’m not expecting. Since Jane is my team mate, I’m feeling that being a Real Estate is not my forte. Although, it’s too early to say. The pressures, worries for clients (doing follow-ups and stuff) and most especially STRESSED are the factors for me to not continue on my second month to feel that I would like to quit and go back to BPO. More importantly, my special someone from U.S arrived, my Brother’s wedding, Dad’s birthday and other events in the family added for the days I took off from work, although, my manager told me she understand these kind of events in the family.
I’m just writing this feeling that I’m going through. I salute all the people working in Real Estate and never doubt their capabilities. It’s Okay to Start again in other fields of work (as writing this, I would Like to try overseas jobs.) It’s your life not theirs, as long as you are HAPPY be it!
