Every so often we have to put our big boy/girl pants on, step up to the plate and get things done in order to make major changes to our business. Consequently making major changes to our business can impact our personal lives as well, wouldn’t you agree? On this episode of the podcast, I am honored to introduce my very dear friend, Scott Griffin who, in just 4 years is on track to increase his personal, yes I said personal, income by nearly $1.3M! Isn’t that incredible?  

Scott has a truly remarkable story that I can’t wait for you to hear. He was gracious enough to be completely transparent and share his story. On this episode you’ll hear about:

  • The paradigm shift that occurred in order for such rapid growth.
  • The single most influential activity that allowed him to increase his production rapidly.
  • His personal income amount each year since 2015.

You might be amazed by the amount of growth shared during this podcast and I am so proud of my brother, Scott. If you want to know how you can get on track to see similar results, set up a Free Strategy Call with one of our coaches at LoanOfficerFreedom.com/StrategyCallRequest.

Do you ever notice that little guy or gal on your shoulder putting negative thoughts into your head and keeping you from taking the action you know you should take in order to achieve your goals, be it in your professional or personal life? 

In today’s episode, I get to speak with the ultra-lovely Ms. Irene Dufford, who is a great inspiration to me and has helped me in more ways than one! In this episode, we talk about why we have negative thoughts and what we can do to get rid of them. Now, I was a little embarrassed to admit that I’ve done some of the activities to help me overcome some of my thoughts and doubts, but ultimately it’s helped me grow into becoming a better father, husband, businessman, just overall a better person. Both Irene and I…along with many in our Freedom Club program have been able to see tremendous results when putting these activities into practice. 

Remember, “your emotions determine how you feel, how you feel turn into your actions, and your actions determine your results. So, if you want good results, be intentional about the thoughts you put into your head.”

As Loan Officers or Branch Managers, it’s commonplace to know you “need” to be available 24/7 to answer calls, send out pre-approval letters, attend open houses, etc. But is that really how we need to be operating our business?

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the #1 podcast for Loan Officers, I sit down with my dear friend Jen Du Plessis, a follow Mortgage Industry leader, as we discuss why being available 24/7 isn’t the way you should operate your mortgage business and how we’ve been able to turn our professions into what I like to call a lifestyle business. A business model that allows us to run a successful mortgage business with epic results without having to work nights and weekends.

Online & Offline Lead Generation – Episode 59

stitcher-button iheartradio

One of the biggest mistakes we find a lot of loan officers doing is leaving opportunity on the table. Some loan officers believe offline lead generation is the best way to get in front of the customer and is the only way you should be marketing. While others believe the modern, convenient, and easiest way to get in front of the customer is by using online marketing tactics. My response every time to these statements is…do both! Combine your efforts so there is no opportunity left on the table.

On this episode of Loan Officer Freedom, the #1 podcast for Loan Officers, I’m talking to my good friend and business partner, Chris Johnstone, who is a master of online marketing. What he and I have done is combined our expertise from both an online and offline marketing perspective to get the best of both worlds. We use both online and offline marketing strategies to get in front of our customers by:

  • Marketing to our past clients.
  • Marketing to potential referral partners.
  • Marketing directly to the consumer.

In this episode, you’ll learn

  • Which 3 campaigns you can use on Facebook today.
  • How quickly you can expect to get leads & how quickly those leads turn into closings.
  • How to use Facebook & traditional offline marketing tactics together.
