The invitation to join ELITE in 2015 almost resulted in the biggest mistake of my career. Although I was absolutely flattered by the acknowledgment and invitation, I had already made up my mind to decline the offer. I thought I already knew enough about our industry to make a monthly call and a few extra meetings per year relatively insignificant. I also remember that the commitment of time and to travel factored heavily as well. Fortunately, I did bounce the idea off of my mentor before announcing my decision and as he has told me before, “If it is worth anything, it is worth that. You can’t afford not to.” Thankfully I followed his advice and my personal income doubled within 24 months. Given there are pretty high standard required for entry, this was HUGE!!! Join us if you get the chance! Like my mentor told me, YOU CAN’T AFFORD NOT TO!!!

“In 2014, I funded $110 Million in volume and thought that I had this business figured out. When I was invited to join the Inaugural Elite group in 2015, I didn’t think it was necessary to spend the time or money since I was already doing well. However, the one thing that I realized was that I wasn’t really being pushed to be better and I was starting to plateau. Some of the best books I have read from the best business minds in the world (Jim Rohn, Darren Hardy, Napoleon Hill, Tony Robbins, Etc), all said that the best thing you can do for your business is to invest in yourself and have a mentor/coach. I had never heard of coaching in the mortgage business and had never invested in myself up to this point. So I thought it would be a good idea to see what it was all about and I was sure I would learn some things….. Fast forward to four years later and I can unequivocally say that our business would be nowhere near where it is today, I wouldn’t be half of the leader or business person that I am today and I wouldn’t be nearly as good of a husband, father, son or friend to the important people in my life. You learn so much more than just how to be better at doing loans that it’s hard to put into words. The content is invaluable and the relationships made with other top performers in the business is unmatched. If you want to do something for your team, your family and your business, then join Elite… for yourself!

Becoming a Top Producing Originator is no easy feat. It’s easy to find yourself alone on an island with no one to challenge your thinking. Being a member of Elite gives me the opportunity to be amongst those who can challenge me to become a better version of myself. It allows me to hold counsel with those who understand what it means to reach higher and higher levels of excellence. I believe we are the average of those we surround ourselves with. Being a member of this group gives me what I need to raise the bar in my business and life! By being in this group, I have been able to achieve my goal of helping 400 families a year. Powerful!
