Richie - I am fortunate, like Bob Crane, and have a spouse in another profession. That certainly helps the ebb and flow of the real estate industry.

I had another business when I started Richie, it takes awhile to make it in the profession. Some quit out of frustration.

Yes. I learned early on to budget, save and plan. I truthfully can say I never felt panic over a paycheck not coming fast enough. I learned to do without until the money was there.

Richie Alan Naggar author of books on Life-Love-Intimacy-Purpose - it's still challenging for many. However, if they follow good business practice (pay every month to themselves and keep rest aside), it should work!

Richie Alan Naggar author of books on Life-Love-Intimacy-Purpose The key is to always keep prospecting. Many stop when they have a transaction going. When the transaction closes, they are often looking for the next deal. Keep your pipeline full and you won't have this problem.

I have found if you prospect every day and keep the pipeline full there is no roller coaster affect.
