If you are happy and fully actuated in your job, congratulations AND be extra careful. Prudently and logically evaluate your career while peeking through the curtain of your happiness. (Think airplane pilot. Even on the easiest flight, a good pilot is frequently checking his position, where he is headed, upcoming weather, condition of the aircraft, etc.)
For most career real estate sales professionals, happiness can be a trap. Of course you want to be happy. But just like the pilot who is always verifying that all’s well, you should always evaluate where you are in terms of what the other options are in the market. Sometimes you find that you are still in the best place possible for your career and can carry on with confidence. At the very least, you know what your options are. This is insurance against having to make a fast move due to some change in your office or company or some inability of your company to adapt to a change..
Comfort is not a reason to waive off career evaluation meetings. Be honest. How comfortable should you be in sales anyway?!
Talk with everyone who calls. Only meet with those who can handle the tough questions.
