After working in fashion for six years, I finally decided to take a step back and do the unexpected: dive into real estate. I've been with my husband long enough to know how hard it is to be in this industry, and how greedy (and sometimes stupid) people can get especially when big money is involved. Many people do wonder why I left the job I've always dreamed of, considering that I get to earn a decent living writing about clothes and all that fun and fluff, versus selling and leasing out properties.
Well, two things: One, it's not all fun and fluff. Working in fashion is not a joke, it is hard work. And two, it's all because of LOVE.
