00:12:13 ada chen: I can’t tell who sent this ^^ because it looks like there’s multiple people signed in as Belma?
00:12:37 ada chen: If your name is showing up as Belma’s, you can change it by clicking the “…” on the top right corner of your video screen and clicking “rename”

00:32:31 Anne C-M: Lauren, I recently read a book called “When to Jump” about planning to move toward your “perfect” job.
00:33:50 ada chen: It’s terrifying and exhausting ❤️
00:34:09 Anne C-M: the author is Mark Lewis.
00:36:01 Anne C-M: Ambiguity is so hard! Failure is part of learning
00:36:29 Wendy Avenius: Can be paralyzing to make the move and can relate. Fail often so you can succeed sooner.
00:37:22 Judy Levin: i’m experiencing a similar feeling. you’re not alone.
00:37:42 Kate Barney: Definitely not alone! A lot of this is resonating with me, too!
00:42:00 ada chen: Sending you massive kudos, Lauren. Verbalizing any option is scary, I had a similar experience with coming to terms with my next steps.
00:45:46 Judy Levin: you’re smart. you won’t fail. you just have to be prepared that there’s a ramp up period.
00:46:46 ada chen: ^this! Also, are there smaller (and possibly free) ways to see if this is what you want to do? I almost sat for the NJ real estate exam (long story), and there were plenty of free practice exams out there – I would hope CA is similar!
00:47:30 Sheridan Ex: Great suggestion ^^ Also, not sure how easy this would be but maybe shadowing someone for a day to see the realities of the day to day life.
00:47:34 Geena Wakeley: I have a friend who transition to being a real estate agent after working in marketing – would be happy to connect you!
00:48:41 Kate Barney: I have a couple friends who recently transitioned from very different backgrounds. Both are realtors in VA, but happy to connect you, too!
00:49:04 Belma McCaffrey: Thank you everyone
00:49:06 Anne C-M: in Connecticut, some of the bigger firms will support your training. Little bit of a safety net
00:49:58 Jenn Wozniak: ^same in MA
00:50:25 Belma McCaffrey: Please share any connections with me at firstname.lastname@example.org
00:50:53 Anne C-M: Lauren, thank you for being sooo courageous! We are are alll here to support you.
00:56:36 Anne C-M: no shared experience?
00:58:00 Sheridan Ex: Is your LinkedIn set up to be “recruiter-friendly”? I can help you take a look and make sure your experience is set up in a way that recruiters can easily find you.
01:02:52 Anne C-M: I also feel irrelevant in my work—and I have been successful for many years. Scary
01:04:33 Geena Wakeley: I have to hop off but thank you so much for sharing today ladies!
