Editor’s Note – Hello Everyone, Happy New Year to you and I’m so happy to have you read my blogs coming up in 2019!!
I’ve taken a few days of rest over Xmas to set my goals for 2019. I’ve written down my business goals since 1987.
It’s funny that when I go back during the year to read my notes, a lot of goals I’ve written down have actually been accomplished.
I think that actually writing down my goals is half way to reaching them. I’ve always been very goal orientated since I was a little 10 year old girl who wanted to study music in Italy.
So what I did in order to reach my goal financially, I started to sing in the church for weddings and funerals.
I joined Junior Achievment and sold black boards in the winter time in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada.
This is funny, I won the award for the best salesperson ( I was the only girl to win the award). I remember that I won 2 silver dollars. I thought that was the best thing in the world!!
I then took a secreterial course, after graduating from high school, so that I could learn short hand, bookeeping and typing in order to find a good job. I got a job at the University of Manitoba and started saving my money to go to Europe.
At the age of 21, I went with my family to Rome, Italy and after my singing audition, I was accepted by the Conservatorio of Music of Santa Cecilia.
I was the only Canadian to get accepted to the Conservatory of Music for the 9 years I studied in Italy.
So, yes, I’ve always been very goal oriented and I have many goals I want to achieve in 2019 for the Real Estate Media News Network.
Join me as I press forward with the Real Estate Investors, Landlords and Landowners in “having a voice” in the media!!
