Thank you!

I have been procrastinating on going for my real estate license for several years. With the help and push of a seasoned agent, I finally started attending classes a couple weeks ago. My style is to give 100% to anything I put my mind to endeavor (hence the delay), but I am ready now.

In preparing for the “all in” mindset, I tend to immerse myself in the research & education aspect. On my immersion journey, I found your podcast. It has been such a blessing to say the very least! Thank you so much for your candor, transparency and relatable delivery. Please keep doing what you do how YOU do it, it is MUCH needed and appreciated.

P.s. Yours is the first podcast that I was moved to write a review for.

Rosemary, I’ve been following your journey for the last two years. I can’t remember how I found you, all I know is, it was in God’s plan for me to. Since the beginning, you have been a warm and inviting person with a angelic soul. I’ve been scared to do it, but just like your work ethic, I’m thankful that you’ve remained resilient and tenacious in sharing your knowledge and encouraging words. I love your podcast and I look forward to hearing more of your episodes.
They’ve encouraged me to “Do It Scared”!!
