Hi guys, After some research and thinking, I am in a stage in my life where I'd like to have a change in career. I'm currently in business in hospitality. Although it does have its perks like decent cashflow, I have realised money isn't everything and I'm finding myself increasingly unhappy due to several factors out my control like poor partnership choice and ridiculous 6am starts and 10pm finishes. I have a family and it's really getting to a point where I'm not seeing them much. To the point, having a passion for property and all things related, I was thinking a change to Mortgage Broking might be an option for me. I know this thread should be on the Small Business threads but haven't seen many MB posts so I thought I'd put it here where most MBs frequent. I currently have Mondays and Tuesdays off. I know that a career in MB takes some time to start seeing any money. So is there any chance I could continue with my current work to support myself and family and try work to start off in MB part time on Monday/Tuesday? Or is this an unresonable idea? Another question. I know the minimum qualification is Cert 4 and after Dip. In MBM. Which I know I'll have to study for. But the part that I'm having a hard time understanding is how mentorship works for people without experience. I have heard some real nice stories by some brokers who found a real gem of a mentor who sincerely helped them in their journey. But how does one find such a mentor. I've seen some mentorship programmes with 100 people in a huge conference room being 'mentored' for a huge fee. Is that what mentoring is? Surely can't be that indirect. I mean how does the day to day stuff work if you need help from your mentor? Anyway, just some thoughts I'm having. Please feel free to give any advice or opinion if you were once where I am or started off in a similar way. Other info: I have a bachelor degree in business and some public practice experience in Taxation. Also from Sydney. I'm 32. Thanks for reading and for your comments.
