From Attorney To A Real Estate Agent Is Not A Bad Idea
[00:00:00] My wife is a real estate agent. How can I use my JD/MBA to help assist her? Or, what else can I be thinking about doing outside of the law firm?
I think you could actually become a real estate agent. I think real estate agents that are attorneys do very well.
Most of them are much happier than they were practicing law. And, they're often very thorough. They think through things. You certainly could be a real estate agent yourself. There's nothing wrong with that. Real estate agents can do exceptionally well, especially in a market like this.
You have a JD and MBA, I bet that's great. All that shows me is you have a lot of motivation and in many times applying that motivation to other things, you'll get better results than you would practicing law.
I It's amazing, so many attorneys, by the way, get into the legal field and just don't like it, or they, don't get a lot of very warm reception. One of my neighbors went to a fourth year law school. That's no longer in business. I guess you call it a business, and he started this giant company that I think he sold for a couple of hundred million dollars. There's just, so many opportunities for people that are attorneys with your skills. If you're unhappy or you're just [00:01:00] not getting a warm reception or you feel like, you're capable of more, then, you can certainly do other things. And, I recommend doing it.
Most attorneys who aren't happy practicing law, and then they find something else are happier doing something else.
