Thank You for coming in and reading my story.
Who I am and who I have been:
Mom and artist, creative.

My name is Lynn Spencer-Nelson.
I am a creative, friendly and compassionate person.
I have also worked as an artist, a fitness/hoop dance coach and community leader, a retail associate, a personal and virtual assistant, an Uber Partner and the list goes on. I tried all these ventures and was able to stay at home with my children when they were young.
A gig income takes a lot of time, work and organization. I learned a lot but in the end it was never sustainable. My upbringing did not afford an education beyond high school.  As I grow older, the activities that I could physically do for money are changing. I began looking for a way out of the gig income about a year ago. The employers that have reached back to me in this job search can not offer a livable income. I'm scared to be honest and have been searching for what I could do make it through this last half of my life and be able to help my kids enter into thier own space as adults. 

My Choice: Real Estate

I have chosen Real Estate for its income potential and the opportunities that I will be able to pass on to my children. I choose real estate because it is a self governed career and I feel that it will fit well into life as it is. I am used to this type of work and I can also see how my personal and creative skills will be an asset to growing my business. I choose real estate because I need to feel that the rest of my life and this ongoing life with the kids is safe and secure.

What Your Support is Supporting:
Education, testing, license

I have already began the process. I am working with FCTucker for my education. FCTucker is the largest Real Estate company in Indiana. The course by itself is $600. There are two Tests at $120 each. (usually takes a few time to pass, I am told) Then on to Licensing which is over a $1000 with then fees and such. My FCTucker mentor estimates the end cost at over $2200.00. In my introduction booklet, it suggests that you have a few months of expenses saved so that you can jump in full time and get the business going as soon as possible.

Required Time Frame: A Year ... or less.

I am taking part of this years tax check to begin the online course. I am really excited to get started!
After I complete the course, I have one year to pass both of the tests. I want to take it and pass them as soon as possible. After I pass these tests, application for license must be received within one year of passing both parts of the examination.

Your Support Will Mean So Much To Me and To My Family. I Cannot Imagine coming close to expressing the gratitude that I will feel when the milestones to this career move come to pass.

The support you choose to offer to this campaign will place me onto a path that will financially support this family for the rest of my life. The extension of your support will help my children step into their own lives with more stability and more opportunities. Your support will help to finance the continuation of my art. Your support will help me get to a financially stable position, a place where I can afford to also pay it forward and help others.

Thank You for Visiting.

I started what feels like a very important move in my life. I'm excited, but I need help getting there. I am willing to take your support as a loan, but I wont be able to pay you back for some time. This could take a year or two, maybe more. If you would like to be paid back, please say so when you make a donation. When I begin to receive commission from this new career, I am willing to pay people back for their generosity. I appreciate any help you offer. I am so grateful any support that I receive. I thank you and my family thanks you.
