I recently posted on social media an available position here at Johnson Home and Land. I knew I needed to tap into my creative side in order to adequately describe the position. I also wanted to attract people who would be the right fit for this position. Writing this announcement was more difficult than I thought it would be. After 20 years in real estate you would think I could describe quickly and effortlessly what I am looking for but I struggled with putting the words to paper. I came across this article by Christy Wright and it greatly helped me write the following advertisement.

Describing the position reawakened me to what I love about this business! This is a “full time, lifestyle business.” I have allowed my career to crowd my life and have had to self- correct several times in the past 20 years. I have lived in the tension of balancing family, career and self-care. It has been a learning process. I love the expression, “remember why you started,” and that is what I did while writing this description.
