nobody takes me seriously today! - Posted by Anne_ND

It has become increasingly clear, after a skinny summer (and unfortunately I mean my wallet was skinny, not me) that full time investing in real estate is going to work for me. Bills will continue to get paid, cats will not have to go without food (or, more importantly, kitty litter) and certain important financial milestones will be met.
This recent realization, and the purchase of 2 more mobile homes this weekend meant that this morning I was feeling all right.
It was going to be a good day… No vacancies, all the rent checks came in early, and a whole buncha folks calling about my new mobile homes.
After showing one very young couple a mobile home that I’m having resided, the guy turns to me and asks when he can speak to my husband about buying the home. This happens fairly often to me, so I just smiled and said “I’m an employee who is qualified to conduct all negotiations without a husband present”.
Later that day I was depositing a fairly sizable check at the bank, and decided to go through the drive-through rather than go in the bank. I headed for the commercial window, deposited my check and as I was leaving the young woman gave me a nice smile and said “by the way ma’am, this window is for commercial accounts only, next time go to the personal window”. I pointed out to her that I had just made a deposit to a commercial account and she got very flustered and apologized.
What is it about me that screams “person who does not make important decisions”?
Do you think it’s the fluorescent pink tie-dyed t-shirt?
I love being self-employed! Have a great day!
