|I read a news story this morning about an 86 year old gal named Bette who has been working as a stewardess for American Airlines for the past 65 years. And she has no plan on retiring.
She loves her work and the people she serves love her right back. Some people might think she’s crazy for wanting to work into her 80s. But I’ve gotta tell ya – I give her major respect. When work doesn’t feel like work, I call that living life to the fullest. And best of all, she gets to impact people’s lives in a positive way. Some people slave away their entire lives so they can sit around and do nothing. Not me. Life is too good to sit idle doing nothing.
Bette reminds me of some of my Probate Fox students. I’ve worked with a lot of people who are in their “Golden Years” and still want to take a deep dive into the probate niche. I’m starting to think that being in your golden years means you somehow become a golden goose turning leads into cash better than the young bucks who are a third their age.
Lately, I’ve had a lot of students come to me who are over the age of 65. Most of them have finished their “regular” careers and are ready to retire into real estate. What I am amazed at is the fast success they find. Maybe it’s their work ethic or their ability to have down to earth conversations with people. Whatever it is they usually beat out all of the youngster real estate wannabes.
Take for example the 82 year young gal who just joined our Probate Fox family. Honestly, she’s sharper and brighter than some of the 22 year olds I work with. Life experience trumps youthful energy just about every time. I am so excited for what she has coming her way in success in the probate real estate space. She’s already a real estate broker and an investor who has found success flipping various properties year after year. Now she’s ready to accelerate her business with probate.
To your success,
