What lessons did you learn from your family, friends, previous jobs, and life experiences that helped you most to succeed in your career?
"In addition to learning lessons from some of the success stories noted above, I also learned lessons from my failures. I learned that when I try to take the easy road or fail my responsibilities there will be consequences. When I hear those two profound words spoken so often (on television) by Donald Trump, "You’re Fired!", I recall the two times in my own life when I was fired. "
"In my life I have developed the confidence that "I can do anything I put my mind to. " I believe that was instilled in me by my parents at a young age. I was very inquisitive too always wanting to understand the "cause and effect" relationship. I learned that hard work and a well thought out plan would bring results – every time. "
What do you enjoy most about the business?
"I enjoy helping others reach their goals. This is one facet of the business that has always kept me going and has motivated me over the years. "
"There is something else I really enjoy about the business. I appreciate the fact that this business allows for creativity. I love the challenge of coming up with new ways of doing things."
Do you believe goals are important to your success?
"Yes, I think goals are very important. No goals, no (significant) results. Set goals and you can move mountains! "
Are you A Billion-Dollar Agent or do you believe you will hit that level during your career?
"I am already well on my way to one billion based on "one-sale-at-a-time-type-selling". With my new way of selling volume to investors nationally, I believe I will hit the billion-dollar mark in just a few short years!"
