Life here in Northern Ontario has quickly taken a turn for the worse. The economy went from super good to super bad in less than a year. To give you a quick run down of what I did in the good times was change company and opened my own office with 2 great guys from the area. The issue now, is that alot of mines are closing. Mining is our life here in the Sudbury area, okay, it's not as much our lives as it used to be, but the mines still affect most industries in the area, including mine, Real Estate. So now, i'm sitting here trying to decide what to do, to make sure we get by the hard times and stay afloat. Real Estate has slowed to a crawl as people don't want to commit to a house when they don't know if they will have a job in the morning. I'm thinking I might go for a part time job for now just to have something to fall back on. Because if I don't sell houses we are in big trouble, no houses, no money, no money, no fun.... I'm totally okay with having to get a job to fall back on but what i'm wondering now is do I keep my office or do I let it go. It's costing a LARGE amount to maintain in business on a monthly basis. An amount that most of you would not believe, alot of people think Real Estate Agents make all this money but they really don't realize all we pay on a monthly basis just to keep our license going. So my big question at this point is what to do? what to do? I know i'll figure it out but i'm asking you all a small favor tonight, if you could please find time to send some positive energy my way I know that it will help us make this hard decision. Sorry this post is not about adoption, it's just about what i'm feeling at the moment. I want to make the right decision to be able to provide for my son once he is home.
