Today we’d like to introduce you to Kori Fraction.
Hi Kori, so excited to have you with us today. What can you tell us about your story?
I began college on a different career path. Like most kids beginning college, I honed in on a creative major that would hopefully make me money one day. During this time, I had a child and decided to change career paths to make a living for my family. Being in the service industry, I quickly learned to step out of my comfort zone to develop different marketing techniques and interpersonal skill sets. I also gained a new perspective on entrepreneurship, but I still wasn’t fulfilled. I decided to go back to school full time, with hopes of landing into a class that would shed light on what was missing. That class was Real Estate Appraisal. Enthralled with the depths of real estate, more specifically residential real estate, post-graduation I passionately threw myself into the world of all things interior design, decor, and architecture. I created @Kori_Interiors as a means to showcase inspirational and creative designs as well as document my journey with owning my first new construction home with my Husband. This platform aims to deliver quality and tailored content that illustrates my passion for decorating and design.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
During my journey of finding my passions and purpose in life, which isn’t completely figured out yet. I struggled with knowing if my efforts to hone in on what I wanted out of life professionally was the “right” thing. Going through school, being a mom and a wife, all while trying to find myself and passions was a huge struggle, and some days still is. As time pass and I learn during the journey, the vision becomes clearer and that keeps me going.
Alright, so let’s switch gears a bit and talk business. What should we know about your work?
I am a full-time Program Manager for CBRE on the Microsoft account. I manage and support Microsoft’s initiative to integrate smart solutions to their Global campuses. I am most proud of being connected with the Microsoft’s team and to collaborate on Global projects.
Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
Risk-taking is all I know to do, growing up the only child and often home alone. I have gained an appreciation in taking a leap of faith and trying new things, going to new places. I think taking risks is the only way to really grow and taking advantage of the full life we have
