05 Sep 5 Ways to Mastermind Your Way to Success
My summer kicked off with a bang as one of the keynote speakers at Steven Marshall’s Mastermind Summit in Las Vegas where I shared my 7 STEPS to 7 Figure Mortgage Success. Maybe you were in the audience that day?
More than 2,000 mortgage professionals came together to share best practices and learn and grow together, and the event was once again a huge success! As I connected with other mortgage professionals at the event, I began to hear many similar themes of the current challenges that mortgage originators are facing today. They didn’t have effective strategies to build new referral partnerships, they felt like they were losing loans to their competition, they didn’t feel they were executing consistently on their marketing plan, and they did not feel they had the proper support in place to allow them to originate at their optimal levels of success.
Have any of these questions or concerns come across your mind lately?
I think what happens to many of us is that we get stuck in ruts, and it’s really easy to stay in status quo. It’s sometimes difficult to create small shifts that can empower us to live our best life and drive our business to new and expanded levels of success.
The small shifts I made that took my own success to an entirely new level were fueled by surrounding myself with the best mentors, coaches, top originators and those that supported my growth fully. As the great Jim Rohn, author of Living an Inspired Life, once said, “Success is nothing more than a few simple disciplines practiced every day.”
That’s why I decided to start the Mortgage Mastermind Elite program.
We all know that knowledge is not enough. It’s taking action that creates success. And I absolutely KNOW FOR SURE that when we take action – doors begin to open that we didn’t even know existed. It can be scary – but for me, it’s become much scarier to not fully live the life we’ve been given. Change comes from taking deliberate risk for the sake of growth.
Not familiar with a mastermind group?
A mastermind group inspires the power of the collective. We all know that two heads are better than one when it comes to solving a problem or creating a more positive result. Imagine having a group of like-minded mortgage professionals who meet consistently for the purpose of problem solving, brainstorming, networking, and encouraging and motivating each other to take action.
Research supports that motivated professionals who surround themselves with like-minded people are able to grow their business faster and attain goals that they were previously unable to reach on their own.
Napoleon Hill, author of Think and Grow Rich, says that a mastermind group is “designed to help you navigate through challenges using the collective intelligence of others.”
Today, I want to share 5 reasons why you should be part of Mortgage Mastermind Elite and how you can join my new program, which will begin in October.
5 Reasons Why Mortgage Mastermind Elite is Right for You
#1: The Power of the Collective
I’ve been coaching mortgage loan originators for several years and have participated in several different mastermind groups throughout my career. As a matter of fact, I’m part of a mastermind group right now.
For me, the power of the collective is huge. Tapping into the vast experience of different business owners, entrepreneurs and sales professionals is unparalleled.
The amount of information you’ll learn is so incredibly powerful – from marketing strategies, to insights on how to build and grow your team, to expanding your business referral partners – you’ll learn tips and get ideas that you may not have thought of on your own.
#2: The Major Shift in Industry Regulations
The mortgage industry has always been a really challenging one, but more so since the regulatory environment shifted so drastically. The level of compliance, regulation, and documentation on files, plus the systems that have to be in place to process a loan, can be overwhelming. Everything is time sensitive. Everything has a sense of urgency. Loan originators are pressed to complete an extraordinary amount of paperwork and documentation on every single file in a very timely manner.
Today, most mortgage professionals like you are sitting behind a desk and drowning in paperwork or trying to create teams that are strong enough to support them, so they can get out and sell and go back to doing what they love.
Our mastermind group will support you in these efforts. We’ll make business fun again. Sometimes you just need some motivation, inspiration, and support. That’s what our group of like-minded people can do for you. And, I can guarantee that this is a support system that will extend past our six months together as a formal mastermind group. It’s happened with every mastermind group I’ve led and participated in, and I treasure these relationships.
#3: The Power to Let Go of Limiting Beliefs
Limiting beliefs can sometimes get in the way of reaching your goals and living the life you desire. You have the power to change your story. You can turn every limiting belief into a positive one. Being in a Mastermind group can help you do this by encouraging you to change your thinking, embrace your fear, and envision a different outcome. By noticing and replacing each negative thought you have with an empowering one, you will be able to retrain your thinking and go after your dreams.
Isn’t it amazing how we sometimes get in our own way? Isn’t it also amazing that everything we want is on the other side of our fear? One thing that I have learned is that the only way you can take your business to the next level is by making the choice to take deliberate risks for the sake of your own growth.
#4: The Creative Exchange of Ideas to Grow Your Business
One of the best parts of a mastermind group is the exchange of ideas, the support of a powerful network committed to your success, and the creative problem-solution strategies to help you overcome your biggest challenges – from regulation and compliance…to marketing…to building new committed referral partners.
Many companies don’t provide marketing platforms for their originators and many don’t have time to implement the tools that are provided, so we’re left on our own to position our business in a way that will help us grow. We will provide simple and cost-effective solutions to stay in touch with your referral partners and past clients to make sure you are maximizing your repeat-business platform.
#5: The Mentorship to Create a Life by Design…Not by Default
Have you ever felt so overwhelmed with work that you feel you have no control over your life? Maybe that’s how you feel right now. I can tell you without question that I have had that experience.
My Mortgage Mastermind Elite program can help you gain back control of your life. It can help you get more focused with your work, get clearer on your vision for your life and your business, and help you take action steps to move towards creating the life and business you desire and deserve.
I am a living example of how a mastermind group can transform one’s life. For over 10 years, I was among the top 100 mortgage loan originators in the U.S. I funded nearly $200 million in production in my highlight year, while raising three kids. Trying to juggle my schedule, managing a huge pipeline, attending my kids sporting events, and managing my team became a constant struggle. My life felt out of control and while attending a mastermind, a peer suggested an idea that truly changed my life!
That point in my career made me ask myself two important questions, and they’re the same questions I pose to you today:
- What do you want your life to look like?
- What small shifts can you make to create change in your life?
The answers to these questions will help you recreate your life and begin to make new choices to help you truly live your life by design. It’s time to manage your time and your business instead of your business managing you. You have the ability to make different choices and thus create a new result.
It can be scary and difficult to follow a new path, but I assure you, this mastermind group will support you every step of the way.
Are you ready to be part of a support network that you can only get from a powerful mastermind group? Are you ready to make an investment in yourself? That’s really what this is all about. The single greatest investment is the one you make in yourself. It’s a chance to better yourself for your business, for your family, and most importantly, for YOU.
