Before you start "googling" my name to see if I am the Rock Star I claim to be…let me explain.
For 20 years (mol), my passion was to advocate for, educate, and counsel children. My student loan balance will tell you that we will most likely be "friends" for a long time. And, although, I am proud of my academic achievements, they only account for a percentage of what made me feel like a "Rock Star."
As a classroom teacher, untold hours go into preparing for "performances" (a.k.a. lessons). If performances inspire - you are on your way to Fame! After becoming a school counselor, my fan base grew. To make a long story short - I was confident in my abilities to inspire students, faculty, and parents. Yes, I felt like a "Rock Star!"
There was only one problem... being a Rock Star with quotation marks has limits.
It became necessary for me to have flexibility and potential income. Oklahoma Real Estate was a seed that was planted about 5 years ago - when my mother retired from the Oklahoma Real Estate Commission (as the Executive Director) and began www.baahs.com (online real estate school). Since I was the second "A" in the name "BAAHS" I felt compelled to learn more about the business.
**Update: baahs.com has changed it's name to Oklahoma Real Estate Education School check out the mobile friendly website
During my first year in real estate, there were doubts and challenges - so many more than expected – yet my desire to help others kept me going. I found that my passion to educate did not stay in the classroom. This meant additional hours committed towards proficiency, because a lack of information is not an option for Mrs. Wilson.
I would not trade my “Rock Star” days in the classroom for anything. And I look forward to increasing my “fan” base in this next gig.
