As I sat through my most recent prelicense education course, I couldn’t help but look around at all the different people taking the class. I believe I had a preconceived notion that most of the people taking this course would be in their 30s and 40s, dressed in business attire and carrying leather portfolios or briefcases. I couldn’t have been more wrong.
Maybe some of you are going through this now, and maybe some of you have already experienced it. I am making a significant career change: I am becoming a real estate agent. My wife and I have owned restaurants for the past 18 years and been very fortunate. However, the long hours combined with the headaches of young employees have pushed us to a point of a necessary career change.
