My Financial Rehab



I begin what I call "The Story" when I started my business life, the moment I became self-employed. I started my journey into self-employment in the mortgage industry, you know finding clients, doing loans, etc. etc. After a few years I felt like I had a greater responsibility to my clients than just offering a "good deal" I got bored with the day to day grind, make calls, network, and hand out business cards. It felt like me and everyone around me were doing the same thing. Nobody was looking for anything more, they were happy with the status quo. This is when I ventured out and started to look for higher education in business and the mortgage industry. I found ways to connect with some of the most successful people in my industry. I studied, shared and grew with them for the next few years. At the same time I was creating a deeper relationship with my clients and business partners. The Mortgage Crisis… Like many in the Real Estate & Mortgage industry at the time, the mortgage crisis affected me financially. I was running a branch at the time and had to end up making the very difficult decision to close down. This decision was made more difficult by the fact that after many years in the business, I was doing very well, felt comfortable in my own skin and had established myself as an expert in my niche in my area (South Florida). The Aftermath… I took this opportunity to take a step back and really get in touch with what I wanted out of life. I took a good long look around and saw many aspects of my life that I wanted to improve and/or change. Could the mortgage meltdown really be the opportunity that I was looking for? Talking about silver lining! I now concentrate on helping people get back on their feet financially. The economy has taken its toll on many people's lives and I am doing my part in putting all the pieces back together.
