Sable Otey has spent most of her adult life clearing hurdles -- usually the type that are lined up single file on a running track -- but there have been a few that life has dropped in her way. When the world is your stage, you want to be at your best when Olympic gold is hanging in the balance.She's challenged herself to earn a spot on the United States bobsled team that competed in the Winter Olympics in South Korea. In some ways, it's a major transition from track and field, her sport of choice in high school, college and one year beyond, but in other ways, her role on the bobsled team is very similar. Either way, Otey is convinced she had the athleticism, work ethic and support and made her latest dream reality.After her pregnancy ended hopes of participating in the 2012 Olympic track and field trials,…

So long as there are products and services offered by an organization, there will be the existence of a sales force. The basic fundamentals of selling are simple: a customer expresses a desire for something and, in turn, someone sells them a product or service to address that desire. Essentially, sales are how an organization converts a “want” into a “need.” While these fundamentals are timeless, they are rooted in a reactive process. When an organization focuses solely on sales in a reactionary way, they can be quite limiting. So, instead of waiting for a customer to have a need, where a plethora of competitors stack up with their own products or services to fulfill that need, you can actually help a customer discover a need they never knew they had. Pre-Solve A Problem With A Pre-Mortem In most cases, the customer thinks they know all the solutions to their problem, and…

Now is an important time in our industry to pay attention to the numbers, the charts, and especially the political rhetoric on all sides. I don’t remember a series of potential market movers and known events all happening in the next week, but any or all of these could dramatically move the markets. First, lets look at where we are to see where the mortgage markets sit as of 6am 10-7-21 when I am writing this: UMBS 30yr 2.5% is 103.05 – 10yr T is 1.52. In the past year the High was 105.63 on 1/4/21 and a low of 102.20 on 3/19/21 and the 10yr T was 1.71 on 3/31/21 and .709 on 10/14/20 Just a point of reference and charts you can have available to share with your clients. We also saw refinances drop 10% week over week and down 16% year over year with rates only being…

Nicolas Manetta-“Those who don’t think outside the box are easily contained.” “We have reached a tipping point,” real estate market experts are saying.   They point out that more homes are being listed for sale, and the prices are still rising, but not at the double-digit frenzy we have seen over the last year. Homebuyers are stepping back into action and making offers on homes now that there may be only five competing offers on the house they want instead of twenty-five offers. Buyers want to lock in a fixed mortgage rate in high two’s or three’s to give themselves an affordable house payment and a design on building their personal wealth.   Home sellers sitting on the fence are now staking the “For Sale” sign out in the yard.     While home prices are high and demand is red hot, sellers want to realize the highest profit and not regret…

Everyone who emails has one. The question is “Are we planning, strategizing, researching and executing effectively?” If we are not, that means our campaign is being implemented with insufficient forethought, as we wing our way through internet (email) communications. The effort deserves better. Many times we are tempted to gain the attention of others by exploiting Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn and Twitter. While they can be excellent, be aware of the fact that your most valuable marketing asset is YOUR OWN EMAIL LIST! Remember the words of Hubspot’s CEO… “The Currency of the Future is your Database!” Be an enthusiastic student of marketing options, especially what you can do online today. New online strategies continue to emerge broadening our horizons and stretching our thinking. Some suggestions: Try new tactics; Monitor results; Track trends; Stay on the leading edge; Commit to execute; Make it a robust profit center!

As a writer, I continue to look for new stories. So, when I saw the above three letters (LFG) I did some research to discover their meaning. There’s more than one. In gaming, LFG is widely used in chat form for online communication with the meaning “looking for group” to indicate that a user or subscriber is seeking to join an already established group. In text messaging, LFG probably indicates impatience or enthusiasm on the part of the sender to start doing something. The “F” is a word that I will omit here, but we certainly hear it all too often. Tom Brady, quarterback of the NFL champion Tampa Bay Bucs, has used LFG in “firing-up” his teammates. Megan Rapinoe has used LFG with the United States Women’s National Soccer Team, who clinched victory in the 2019 World Cup. While I would argue that both Brady and Rapinoe could have…
