Women in Business: Julie Gralla

Tell us how and when you began your career in the profession you are in: When I graduated from college, I pursued a career in advertising. After working at one of the top four global advertising agencies, I found that I did not feel fulfilled; I was often sick as the result of working long hours and despite this finance-like atmosphere, I was not making a finance salary. It was then that my mother, Joni Sweetwood, convinced me to shadow her. I had grown up visiting Kislak, where my mother has been the Executive Vice President and one of the top performers year-after-year. Having grown up in the industry, listening to my mom deal with countless hurdles in the business, I was skeptical at first. However, a short time later I went for my real estate license and 9 years later, I’m still here, outperforming myself year after year! 
What is your current position? Promoted to vice president this year.
Why did you choose the field/profession you are in today? I fell into it, but with the flexible hours that allow me to work with many different interesting people outside of an office setting, it sure does beat advertising!
