I guess you have to look at all your options - but somebody told me many years ago- when it's busy, you work hard. When it's slow- you work harder. If you truly want to have Real Estate as your career, you need to put all your effort into that, and it will pay off. Partner up with successful Realtors in your company or mentor with a successful agent and use techniques that you feel comfortable with to ignite your business.
Just my opinion, but having seen the ebbs and flows of this business for almost 30 yrs, the ones that stayed in the game, always were successful.
(I did network marketing in the past, and it actually ended up costing me more than I made....)
All the Best to YOU!
