Finding a place to operate the business
As a commercial realtor, this should be easy right? Finding the space wasn’t an issue, but my limited budget was. As a single mom in 2010, with one child and a big house to pay for, it was easy to imagine the vacant bedrooms as offices. Since I didn’t want to look like a business operating out of my house, I rented a Post Office Box out of the United Parcel office, which provided a real address. Rather than state that I was using a PO Box, we called it a suite, and no one caught on. Today, this is much easier, as there are many places that will lease you a single office, where you can put as many people as you want in a room.
