Today we’d like to introduce you to Myeesa White.
Hi Myeesa, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
Growing up, I always knew that I wanted to do something that was not going to have to go the traditional route. All throughout high school, it is always embedded in students’ heads to go to college and get their degree, which I followed because I felt that I had to. Once I got to college, I just knew it was not for me. I had switched my major maybe 4-5 times and I just couldn’t find anything that really resonated with me. I realized then that I wanted to get into real estate but I felt bad to just leave school after my parents helped pay for my schooling to go dive into real estate. So I continued with college on and off and working full time.
Well life happened and I ended up meeting my husband and we got pregnant with twins. I was considered a high-risk pregnancy because a few years prior, I had my first set of twins, which I ended up losing at five months. So with me being high risk during that time, I was working full time as an Admissions Advisor for higher education (the irony lol). So I knew that time would not have been good for me to start my real estate classes just yet, I knew I had to wait. Throughout my pregnancy, I continued to work hard up until I was about 34 weeks. That is when I had a mild stroke and caused by a blood clot and doctors discovered that I had a PFO (which is a hole in the heart). Most times these holes close when you are a baby but mine never did. When these things happened, I was put on bed rest and it was at that moment that I had an urge and a desire to do something that I love and that I had a passion for. I would always ask God to show me what my purpose is. I did like my job at the school but I was unfulfilled.
After I had my twins (we made it to 38 weeks) I knew I would need time to take care of them but I also knew this was the time to really go after what I wanted, no more delays! OR so I thought.. about six weeks after I had the twin boys, I was pregnant again with my third boy. We always make plans and God laughs at them. I definitely was in shock but I was ready to do this pregnancy and I knew once I had completed this pregnancy I will pursue my dreams, but first I needed to focus on my babies. This is what I did, I needed to wait and be patient and I knew that something big was going to happen for me.
After I had my 3rd child, I finally started real estate school and completed it. I passed my test on the first try and was so excited! I was so shocked because I have always been horrible with tests (which is why I never liked school, lol) I was finally ready to start my career in real estate. I had an idea of what it would be like but boy was I wrong!
This was all new to me, stepping into entrepreneurship and not working the typical job where you are guaranteed a paycheck. I actually quit my cushion job and jumped straight into real estate! Something I wouldn’t normally advise to do lol looking back that was crazy of me, but I’m so happy I took the leap of faith.
I was blessed to have a husband and family that supported me at the time and was able to help if I ever needed it. I was also blessed to have a mentor in real estate who was also my sister-in-law. Shawnna showed me all the ropes and was also a part of my success in my first year of real estate.
It was hard but so rewarding and I am so grateful that I was able to go through the trials that I did and overcome them because now I feel like I have found my purpose in life, I know what I am here for and I am walking in it every day. I love to help people and do anything I can to make sure I am making a difference in someone’s life.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Finances were a big part of the struggles because we went from a two paycheck home and once I quit my steady job, we were down to 1 paycheck. Keep in mind we had just had three babies who needed everything you can think of. So that was a stressful period. I made it the mission that I had two months after getting my license to close on a home so that I can start bringing money back into my household. I was able to do that, It was difficult but I was able to make it happen.
Also, just learning the ropes of real estate and feeling like people would doubt me.
Another obstacle is having my kids home with me every day and still trying to work. My husband was at work but I was working from home so at times, it was difficult because I would need to find sitters sometimes to keep the kids so that I can run and showings for my clients. That is why I am so thankful for my tribe because they had my back, they wanted me to be successful.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
I am a Realtor and I am licensed in MO and KS. I specialize in relocation services and first-time home buyers. I am always making a way for my clients to get the home that is meant for them and their families. I also help my clients sell their homes and get top dollar for them. I always do my best to make sure I am making my client’s life easier by providing great service and a smooth stress-free process throughout the sale or purchase of their homes.
I most proud that I am able to give back in my business and help others in need and also give back to the community.
Do you have recommendations for books, apps, blogs, etc?
