Do You Have Big Shoes to Fill?

Do you ever feel like you have big shoes to fill?  Perhaps a parent, grandparent, teacher, or mentor?

For me, I have several sets of shoes that I feel I should be filling. 

Big Shoes to Fill

My sister, my little sister no less, has been selling hundreds of houses out in Texas, being rookie of the year and doing an amazing job for her clients right out of the gate.

My mother was a single mom raising 3 or 4 kids, depending on the year while running her mortgage company.

My grandmother used her “pin” money which she earned as a part-time substitute teacher to play the stock market and then use those proceeds to make down payments on several properties in Southern California.

I feel I’ve done pretty well, a couple of bachelors degrees from Berkeley, a law degree from Pepperdine, two great kids, a real estate brokerage and a law firm, but the women in my family have given me a lot for which to strive.

So, (you knew it was coming didn’t you?) whose shoes do you strive to fill?
