Even a slow market like Regina provides agents the opportunity to become workaholics. In 2016, Shayla Ackerman was on the phone with a client the morning of her wedding day – while getting married in another country.
“Shortly after that was when I realized that I am allowed personal days,” Ackerman says. “One of the most important things I have learned is that you still need to take time for yourself.”
While working out her own version of a work–life balance, Ackerman continues to collect accolades for her success at Royal LePage. She placed in the company’s top 10 for Saskatchewan two years in a row and has received its Diamond Award multiple times. “But my proudest moments happen on a regular basis when a client tells me I helped them get where they are today,” she says. “That makes everything worth it.”
