Today we’d like to introduce you to Inna Ogbeide.
Alright, so thank you so much for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us a bit about how you got started?
My father was a huge influence on my interest in real estate. He was a proud immigrant and entrepreneur from Nigeria.
After completing my undergraduate degree from The University of Texas at Arlington, I found work in corporate America to gain stability for myself because I had always believed that was what you were supposed to do.
It wasn’t until I was nearing my first year with the company that I realized how important and valuable my work meant to the company.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Easy? Not at all. I worked full time and drove across town to take my real estate courses at night. I received my license in May of 2017 and sadly in October of 2017 my father passed away. By December 2017, I had been laid off from the corporate job and that’s when I decided to go full time in Real Estate. You can imagine the amount of stress & grief I was dealing with during that time. From that pain, I found strength. I began to write down all my accomplishments big and small. Losing my father made me realize life is short. It changed the way I looked at everything. I began to write out my life goals. It brought out the hustle in me, even more.
By January of 2018, I had closed on my very first real estate deal and become a Top Producer within my brokerage, less than three months in the industry. I knew it was no coincidence; but God. I knew if I could do numbers like that for a Fortune 500 company, I could do the same for myself.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
