What would that look like?

“I was watching a short video from Matt and it reminded me of a conversation that my father had with me when I was 27 years old:

What would happen if for one year you put your head down and gave everything your absolute all?

If for one year you gave your mortgage business and your relationships everything you had, what would that version of yourself look like?

Just how drastically would your life change if you donated one year to your future self, one year of uninterrupted focus?

I bet you’d be a completely different person. I bet you’d be completely unrecognizable. I bet you would look back and say to yourself, “I can’t believe I was living life that way.”

So, if the next year of your life is going to happen one way or another, if time is going to pass anyway, why not put your head down and give it everything you have?

Why not go all-in on yourself?

I think that you’re going to look back and say that that was the single best decision that you have ever made.”

When you are ready to map out what that looks like, when you give “it” your all, or if you were to say “Carl, give me a step by step plan of what activities I would actually do”,…

I can totally hook you up with that.

I’ve always thought, before we say “no” to something, wouldn’t it be a good idea to actually look at what we are saying “no” to?

Maybe in reality it’s an easy “yes”.

Let’s map out what the end result would look like in your dream mortgage life, and then let’s map out what that activity(s) would actually be, what would your perfect week look like, THEN make the decision whether or not to do it.

Kind of a weird tip, but helpful


This may seem a bit “out of left field”, but this can kind of be a big deal. Here’s a little nugget of wisdom about something we all struggle with: accepting compliments.

You know, those kind words that have the power to brighten our day, but we often brush them off or feel awkward about them. Well, no more!

I’m going to share some quick tips on how to accept compliments graciously, so you can enjoy that warm, fuzzy feeling without any awkwardness.

Recognize the value of a compliment:

When someone pays you a compliment, they’re taking a moment out of their day to acknowledge something great about you. That’s pretty special, right? So, let’s start by appreciating the value of a compliment.

Say “thank you”:

This one might seem obvious, but you’d be surprised how many people forget this simple courtesy. When someone pays you a compliment, just say “thank you.” It’s polite, it’s simple, and it shows that you appreciate their kind words.

Resist the urge to downplay it:

When we receive a compliment, our natural instinct might be to downplay it.  But when you do that, you’re essentially rejecting the compliment and making the other person feel like their opinion doesn’t matter.

Instead, take a deep breath and let the kind words sink in.

Don’t immediately return the compliment:

Sometimes, we feel like we need to “balance the scales” and give a compliment back immediately. But doing so can come across as insincere or obligatory.

It’s okay to accept a compliment without returning one.

When the opportunity arises to genuinely compliment the other person, go for it. But, don’t force it just because you feel like you owe them one.

Embrace the compliment as a gift:

Think of compliments as little gifts that people give you.

By accepting them graciously, you’re allowing yourself to enjoy the good feelings that come with them. Plus, you’re showing the giver that their words have made a positive impact on you. That’s a win-win!

Practice, practice, practice:

Just like any other skill, graciously accepting compliments takes practice. The more you do it, the more natural it will feel. So, the next time someone says something nice about you, remember to take it to heart and give them a genuine “thank you.”

Remember, compliments are gifts. So, let’s start treating them as such and accept them with the grace and gratitude they deserve.

Keep shining, my friend! And thanks so much for allowing me to be a part of your day.

The Power of Professional Guidance: Top Reasons Loan Officers Need Mortgage Coaching to Thrive

As a loan officer, you face a number of challenges in your business that can make it difficult to achieve the level of success you desire. From generating leads and building relationships with realtors, to time management and marketing, the list of things to do can seem overwhelming. But there is a solution that can help you overcome these obstacles and achieve your goals: mortgage coaching.

Mortgage coaching is a powerful tool that can help you develop the skills and strategies you need to succeed in your business. Whether you’re struggling with lead generation, time management, or any other aspect of your business, a mortgage coach can provide you with the guidance and support you need to overcome these challenges and achieve your goals.

One of the biggest challenges that loan officers face is generating leads for realtor referrals. Without a steady stream of referrals, it can be difficult to build a successful business. A mortgage coach can help you develop effective strategies for generating leads and building relationships with realtors, so that you can increase your referral business and grow your business over time.

Another common struggle for loan officers is time management. With so many tasks to juggle, it can be difficult to stay organized and stay on top of everything. A mortgage coach can help you create a time blocking system that works for you, so that you can better structure your activities and make the most of your time.

Building the right team with the right people is another challenge that many loan officers face. A mortgage coach can help you identify the right people to work with and develop effective strategies for building a strong, cohesive team that can help you achieve your goals.

Learning the best daily practices to bring in referrals and how to market to your past database can also be a challenge for loan officers. A mortgage coach can help you develop effective marketing strategies that will help you attract new business and keep your past clients engaged and interested in working with you again in the future.

Scripting to use when reaching out for meetings with real estate agents and building lasting relationships with realtors can also be challenging. A mortgage coach can help you develop effective scripts and communication strategies that will help you build strong relationships with realtors and increase your referral business over time.

Being part of a supportive community of like-minded loan officers is another key benefit of mortgage coaching. A mortgage coach can help you connect with other loan officers who are facing similar challenges and provide you with the support and accountability you need to stay on track and achieve your goals.

Finally, having structured processes for a smooth and flawless transaction is critical to the success of any loan officer. A mortgage coach can help you develop effective processes and systems that will help you streamline your business and ensure that every transaction is a success.

If you’re a loan officer looking to succeed in your business, Mortgage Marketing Animals and The Freedom Club mortgage coaching can be an incredibly valuable tool. With the guidance and support of a mortgage coach, you can overcome the challenges you face and achieve your goals.
