Mid-Life Career Change
I decided after 21 years as a business owner to close it last October. I had started the business with my parents four months before my wedding. The funny thing is, I had started real estate school and then decided to work with my parents. As it turns out it was a good decision. A year and two days after my wedding I was blessed with the birth of a beautiful daughter. Then three years later blessed with the birth of another beautiful daughter. I was able to take them to work with me and their Honey and Pop, (grandparents), were able to enjoy each day with them. My dad died and four years later my mom died, so I decided I needed to go back to my dream of real estate. The scariest part of this dream was going back to school and having to pass a test. This delayed the process for about a year and a half. I worried, can I make a living doing this? Will I be able to learn everything there is to this business? Most of all I wondered if was I to old too old to start over. How dumb is that? Once I passed the test I was so ready to get to work. I love what I do each and everyday. I meet and work with great people from every walk of life and backgrounds. I work with couples who are just starting out and buying their first home, some are starting families and need a larger home and some who are ready to retire and want to down-size. There are also those relocating here for their jobs and those who are retiring to Charleston for the great life style Charleston, South Carolina affords them. I will never second guess my decision to make a career change this late in life. I finally feel as though I make a difference in other peoples lives. It is a huge decision to buy a home and I love helping my clients feel comfortable with their decisions. What it boils down to is things happen for a reason and had I gone into real estate when my girls were little I may have missed out on softball games, practices, swim meets and field trips. Those years you can not get back. I hope if a mid-life job change is in your future you research and go for it today! Good Luck!

Next, the magazine ran a one page story on the artsy side of Daufuskie Island across from Harbor Town on Hilton Head. It showed how the ocean has inspired the works of island craftspeople.

Southern Living pays tribute to the top five fragrances of the south
Southern Living also paid tribute to the top five fragrances of the south: Gardenia, Magnolia, Oriental Lily, Four O’Clocks and Ginger Lily. You can’t beat that list. The one pest that threatens the sanity of southern gardeners is moles. So many people are complaining that their tip of the month suggested one teaspoon of chili powder in each hole.
