Hi, there, i don’t know how many of you have seen my posts or heard about my plans on shaving my head, but I finally did it!
If you want to know the reasons why, you can read my blog here. Also if you want to see the previous 2 videos when I was talking about shaving my head, you can click here
I actually have created a different youtube channel, because I wanted to get some feedback from people first, and let’s face it, i wasn’t exactly 100% secure about my choice yet, THEN.
Now I am and i’m extremely happy and feel great. The reason I am posting it on my real estate channel is because I want people to know how i look and not mislead them but my previous videos! It will definitely take some time before my hair grows back to the length it was before!.
Thanks again for watching and for all the support I’ve been getting!
Hi, this is a post not related to real estate directly, but at the same time it so is. At least to my relationships with my clients, my colleagues and my business in general.
On February 14th, 2012 I will shave my head.
I wanted to do it all my life and it is time for me to make it happen.
The reason I am writing about it in my real estate blog, is because I don’t want to shock people, or my clients next time they see me on the street or see a video of me on YouTube!
One thing everybody wants to know is WHY?. my friends, family and colleagues are asking me this question, and many more. So I want to answer most of them.
Do I have cancer or a relative who does? No.
Is my hair falling out? No.
Am I going crazy?. No. ( maybe, but not in that sense ).
AM I doing this for charity?. I wish, but no! I don’t think I have enough hair, plus it’s dyed so it won’t work!
And finally why NOW?.. My answer is why NOT?. If not NOW then WHEN?.. When are we going to do the things that we always wanted to do?.
And of course most importantly I am doing it to save $ on shampoo!
I am doing it for freedom. I am doing it for love. I am doing it for liberation. I am doing it because I believe in our ability to make our own choices. I am doing it because I don’t believe in standard of beauty. I am doing it because I want new energy. I don’t want to NOT do it because I am afraid of other people’s opinions, or judgements, or rejections.
Am I concerned about my career or if it would affect my business?. I have to say, yes I was in the beginning. And that was a reason I haven’t done it earlier. My business is a relationship business, I deal with clients and people I don’t know all the time. We all know how “important” the real estate agent’s look is! We see them on the benches together with the 30 year old airbrushed pictures on their websites and business cards all the time. But why?.. Why can’t we just be ourselves?. I am not saying you shouldn’t be professional. Being the best agent I can be was always and still is my priority. But I have to also honor myself and who I am and what I want. Me not having hair does not change my knowledge of inventory or punctuality, or customer service, or negotiation skills; it only changes just that – my hair. So if people don’t want to deal with me for just that one reason – then, oh well!..
And most importantly I am not saying by any means that everybody should follow, is is not a path for everybody. What I am saying is that YOU know what YOUR path is. Not me and not anybody can tell you what is the right thing to do. You have to follow YOUR heart.
I know that for other people shaving their head is not a path to enlightenment or better life or better feeling and that is perfectly OK. I just want to follow my path and inspire people to follow theirs…
