Do you work? Or are you getting a degree etc?

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

I feel like i need to do something with my life. I had worked as a housekeeper when i was very young and then as a assistant manager at a clothing store for a few years. Now i am a sahm and worried about my future. I mean i don't have anything to fall back on and my husband and i could really use more money, we arent broke but we don't have much. I can't think of anything i would want to do, i want to have a real career but have no interest in anything really. So what do you all do? Do you work? Where? Going to college?

Both. I am a licensed real estate agent and have been for the last 6ish years ( had to go to school for my classes ). I am still a real estate agent plus I manage an office and I do all the graphics. I am also currently working towards my BA in business plus a minor in geology and graphic design

I work,I'm a lawyer...so according to a lot of women here,I'm letting my mother raise my child because she babysits him while my husband and I work *eye roll*

My husband and I are talkin about me becoming a SAHM though,since we're expecting another baby in July and our boys will only be twenty months apart. It's a lot to leave on my mother and we could live comfortably on my husband's salaray alone..

Right now Im a sahm, I do make up but without a license I am only free lance and legally can only do make up application and hair styling, no cut or coloring. I plan on going to cosmetology school but not for a few more years. Once I am licensed the plan is to work part time in a salon then open a small at home salon once I have a clientele built up. For right now the few clients I get a month is plenty.

I have thought aboout doing real estate and was all set to do it when the housing market got bad so i laid off that. Do you like selling real estate? Do you make okay money, and how do you get a job after you complete your classes?

I became a realtor just a few months before the housing market crashed. It is so much better now where I live and if u wasnt also getting a salary as the office manager ( became that a few months before I became licensed ) I wouldn't have stuck with it. I believe it is like 70-85% ( cant remeber the exact % ) of newly licensed agents go back to what they were previously doing within a year unless being a realtor is a second income. Once you get established it can be a very good career It is all a out marketing and the ppl you know
