QUOTE #5  “A lot of agents are not consistent. When you work on a big deal for months and it falls apart, you can see people who go into a downward spiral, and struggle to get out of it, and if you are in a rabbit hole, you won’t be able to see the light of day at the same time.  People need to remember that every experience is a teachable moment, and you need to brush yourself off and start again. If you have disappointments, feel bad for yourself for a day or two, then get yourself back in the game.” Dottie Herman
