Win with a Mortgage Loan Officer Mindset Coach

By Stefanie Sample |   May 15, 2018

You’re a highly driven mortgage loan officer looking to grow your sales immensely. You’ve attended the seminars, the workshops, the luncheons. You know all about managerial techniques, and you know exactly how to be a better loan officer. In fact, you’ve probably been coached as much as a Major League team.

 

So when you hear mindset coach, you may be thinking you’ve heard it all before.  But a mindset coach, by definition, will help you think differently so that you can act differently.

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 29, 2018

It is the beginning of 2018. Still seems odd to think or type that.

My Loan Pipeline Is Empty, Again.

By Steve Scanlon |   Jan 29, 2018

“My Pipeline is looking scarce again”

 

This is something I’ve heard from countless

mortgage professionals that have been in the industry for a few years. And while it’s not a good place to be, the first step to resolving the problem of an empty loan pipeline is recognizing that you have one. 

Things I Learned from Listening to My Procrastination

By Steve Scanlon |   Oct 26, 2017

Last night before falling asleep, I had a brief and final thought about going for a good run in the morning. But the next morning, lo and behold, I wake, do some meditation, get to some work, and then realize that I have a headache. I almost felt queasy. I don’t really know why, but at about 8:00 the little man inside of me began to create reasons not to go for that run I had whole-heartedly committed to just hours before.  You know that little person, right?  He or she is the one inside of all of us crafting all manners of excuses for us not to do something.

How Definitions Shape the Trajectory of our Work

By Steve Longan |   Feb 03, 2017

I don’t think you have to be a “bad kid” to get in trouble a lot. You just have to be someone who doesn’t know when to shut up and stop arguing. Or how to tell the difference between the practical joke that just gives everyone a laugh and the practical joke that gets you suspended.

What Will Be the Markers in Your Life?

By Jason Abell |   Dec 27, 2016

This summer, my son JJ and I hiked the 40-mile section of the Appalachian Trail (AT) that stretches from the northern border of Maryland at the Pennsylvania line to a southern Maryland border at Virginia’s Harpers Ferry. While this trip created many memories for me and JJ, there is something that still sticks out in my mind from the hike: the white blazes.

5 Things I Learned at The Rewire Retreat in San Diego

By Jason Abell |   Sep 29, 2016

Last week saw us engaging with our clients in San Diego for the 3rd annual Rewire Retreat. The Retreat is a time when we do just that: retreat. We get away for 3 days from the daily cycle of phones, emails, typical work and family responsibilities, etc. and engage with other people in a way that we could not otherwise. Make no mistake, we had fun (think ocean kayaking, laughing, bonfires, more laughing, making friends, and jumping out of airplanes). But we also got away to engage ourselves in deep thought about our professional and personal lives, meditate, and plan out new success habits along with specific ways to ensure those habits stick with us for the long-term. It was a transformational time: both for the people who came and for me and the Rewire Team as we ran the event. Today, I wanted to share a few things I learned from my time in San Diego that may be helpful to you.

The Law of Morning Habits Helping You Win

By Jason Abell |   Jun 22, 2016

When a topic surfaces repeatedly during a short period of time within coaching sessions and workshops, I start to pay attention. Recently, that’s been happening with the topic of “how we spend the first hours of our day.” One dynamic I started to notice was that our clients who displayed intentionality with their mornings were getting more out of their life and work than those who were less "morning intentional.” That led me to start researching what kind of studies there might be to support what I was hearing from my clients. And for the last few months I have become a student of morning rituals, lack thereof, and possible connections between how we spend our mornings and our effectiveness at work and life.

Running Out of Time to Exercise and Rest

By Steve Scanlon |   Jun 15, 2016

A wise man once told me that the best time to plant an oak tree is 25 years ago. The second best time is today. I love this simple aphorism because it points to the idea that, even if it will take time to reap the rewards of our efforts, the best time to start something new is now.

How a 25-Year-Old Bicycle Can Help You Start Now

By Jason Abell |   May 02, 2016

In the fall of 1992, an enthusiastic, bright student bought a raffle ticket at a college fundraiser for a mission trip to Mexico that she would be involved with that December. She had never won a raffle before and didn’t think of herself as especially lucky, but this was for a good cause, “So why not buy a ticket?” she thought.
