Giving Up and Giving All

In February 2012, I gave up a career that I loved as a New Home Consultant. At this point, I was blessed with four awesome (and crazy-making) children, with the youngest being 6 months old. And as much as I was passionate about helping families make their new home dreams come true, I made a tough decision. I could either continue making a six-figure income, doing what I loved (and hated too–every weekend and holiday) or be a full-time stay-at-home mom. No one better than their mama, right? (I hope?)

One thing’s for sure: I had faith that one day I’d find a job in the same industry or a new career that I will hopefully love as much as I did the one I was saying good-bye to. I gave up a career making up to $200,000 a year so trust me when I say that money is not everything to me but doing the right thing is.

As new homes were being built, I had the privilege of building strong relationships and friendships with my clients. It was a 6 to 9 month process from the time we moved dirt to the time I delivered their keys. It truly was an emotionally fulfilling career, and I was honored to be a part of this special time in their lives, living out the American Dream: owning land and a brand new home. Even then, as special as this high-paying career was, I had to give it up to give my all to my kids.

“In it to win it” together as one.
