Some have asked me when will you know he is clear and well. Well technically, he is already cancer free, and well. The key is now the milestones. The longer he stays clear, the higher chance the cancer will not return. So we will celebrate each milestone. 6 months, 1 year, 2 years, 5 years, and 10 years. By ten years, his odds of relapse will be as like any healthy person.
On my end, I've been working as a Real Estate Negotiator/ Property Agent since November. I've set up my own website at www.realpropfolio.com, and I also market on our popular Malaysian property sites. It's almost two months in now. There's been numerous viewings, many new places, and I've met so many new people! It's definitely a very interesting venture, albeit one that requires much patience.
Many have asked me why real estate, I mean... graphic designer to real estate negotiator? I'll say why not? The decision was to start from scratch picking up clients and projects as a freelance graphic designer, or to venture into something new. Though that being said, a graphic designer's skill set is never wasted, it really can be used in essentially any industry. For me, it has been an important arsenal for marketing and advertising properties.
In addition, I'm ok meeting new people, I already like viewing houses, I don't mind travelling, I am relatively patient, I don't give up easily, plus the flexible hours still allows me to take care of my 2 plus year old daughter. I just have to work out an arrangement for someone to take care of her when I have appointments. Almost two months in, no regrets. I'll take each day as it comes, and see how it goes from here. Wish me all the best people! : )
