"Mentoring new agents and aspiring entrepreneurs is already a part of my work that I absolutely love! Helping people really is at the heart of who I am. What I tell my new agents is that they have got to be willing to promote themselves and to not be embarrassed or afraid. That for me has been a huge personal growth that I've made for my own business, and it has been hard and scary at times. However, I've had to remind myself that my "why" is bigger than my fear and that no one is going to promote me if I don't do it myself first. So many want to run their own business, but then they're afraid to tell the world that they're doing it. I think that's an initial fear that many have, but it's a hurdle that has to be jumped if they want to find success." –Jessica Martini
