Cops onthullen een conciërge met geheim dubbelleven dat je zal storen!

Wonen in de stad is moeilijk.

Voor Darren Livingston en zijn drie broers waren ze klaar om grote dingen te doen ondanks hun komst vanuit een klein stadje.

Als de oudste was het de verantwoordelijkheid van Darren om de weg te bewandelen.

Helaas kon hij geen betere banenmogelijkheden vinden omdat hij de middelbare school niet eens had afgemaakt.

“Ik was jarenlang conciërge omdat ik geen vaardigheden of certificaten had, ik ben slecht in communicatie en ik ben vaak bang voor menigten”, zei Darren, terwijl hij de beste makelaar in onroerend goed werd genoemd.

Darren zegt dat hij zijn vriend James voor altijd dankbaar is, omdat hij hem heeft voorgesteld in de wereld van onroerend goed.

“(Onroerend goed) was nooit mijn droom, maar ik hou ervan om mijn leven te leren en te verbeteren,” zei hij toen James hem vroeg hem in Toronto te vergezellen.

Darren werd onmiddellijk uit zijn comfortzone gehaald. Hij erkende dat de vroege stadia van het worden van een makelaar in onroerend goed moeilijk was vanwege zijn onvermogen om effectief met zijn klanten te communiceren.

Maar er waren meer uitdagingen behalve dat.

“Soms had ik niet eens geld voor gas, het was moeilijk om mijn klanten te ontmoeten”, lacht Darren.

Maar hij bleef aandringen. Hij volgde avondcursussen in het openbaar en wist zijn netwerkvaardigheden te verbeteren. Darren slaagde er uiteindelijk in om met vastberadenheid succesvol te zijn.

“De reis was en is moeilijk, maar ik moest het overwinnen om te slagen.”

Hij vergeleek zijn reis om een ​​top makelaar in zijn bedrijf te worden voor het fietsen.

“Je kunt niet stoppen, anders val je zeker, dus je moet blijven rijden.”

Voor degenen die net zijn begonnen op de vastgoedmarkt, adviseert Darren; “Geef niet op, ken je zwakke punten en versterk ze, werk hard en je zult ook je dromen bereiken!”

20 Bizarre Facts About Money You’ve Definitely Never Heard Of

Money. It makes the world go round.

Passengers’ Morning Commute Is Disrupted As They Hear Chilling Rendition Of “Unchained Melody”

It’s important to take a minute and smell the roses – or listen to beautiful music put on by street and subway performers! It’s a reminder to see the beauty in all things, even if you are in a rush to the next stop. Mike Yung has been performing in New York Subways for 37 years, so it’s not a surprise that when this man sings, people stop and listen. His heart and soul is projected through his voice, and with a slow, stirring classic song like The Righteous Brothers’ “Unchained Melody,” this is a performance you want to stop for.

At first, there’s no crowd, but once Mike breaks into song and drums up his soulful voice along with his two friends on percussion and guitar, they are full swing into a mini-performance. Mike gives the thumbs up to one man. Some folks stop and listen. Others who pay and carry on, and one guy who forgoes his train to stick around and listen while waiting for the next one. Even as the subway goes by, Mike doesn’t crack, delivering a world-class performance in the underbelly of New York that’s enough to make anyone, even me, become a little more engaged!

Veteran Picks Up 2 Items At Supermarket, Until Stranger Insists On Filling His Cart To The Top

The video opens to Dave in the grocery store approaching people just before they pay and check out. He starts to chat them up, get a little background then surprise them by covering the cost of their grocery bill. Then Dave meets Stephanie, a disabled veteran in a wheelchair who had barely enough money to feed herself or dogs – she was down to her last $50. Dave happily covered the cost of her bill, before meeting Larry who was with Stephanie, and is close friends with Stephanie’s husband, a truck driver always on the road.

Larry is another veteran struggling to make ends meet, who tells Dave about a charity he started which donates highly sought after blankets to homeless veterans. He started this charity after some of his brothers froze to death. Low on cash too, and only picking up two items, dish soap, and candy, Dave steps in and makes Larry’s day. “You served us, now it’s time to serve you,” he says.
