Agent of the month – Julie Haggiyannes

How do you balance work/life?

I believe balancing work life is key to your success. You must know when to be able to switch off. We work in a pressured environment and at fast pace. Things continually are changing and opportunities knock on our door daily it is easy to become addicted. But it is necessary to enjoy ones family and friends as well as relaxing and enjoying the other pleasurable activities you do to just chill out.
