Real Estate Career: Living A Balanced Life
Introduction
Entrepreneur/Strategic Thinker/Realtor - Vancouver, Fraser Valley & Chilliwack.

Living a meaningful life is about having the right perspective by thinking first about the life you want to live and then about the job and career which fits into that life and can support it financially. If you are strategic about your decisions, you can put your life before your job and career.

Happiness has less to do with money than we might imagine, and more to do with the people around us, how we live our lives, the way we spend our time, and how we perceive ourselves and understand our life experiences.
