Hardly a day goes by when I don’t think about quitting this business.
I love the mortgage business, really, I do! Sure, there’s been tough times, like working for about 10 different lenders over the last 8 years. Yeah, that was tough. But at least I was always employed, right? Hey, in this business you can either focus on the bad and suffer day in and day out, or, you can find ways to have fun and make it work. Although I sometimes fall into the trap of the former, I make an effort to stay focused on the latter. That’s one of the reasons I write my blog, it makes it more fun.
We all have times when we consider getting out. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had LOs, AEs, processors, and executive managers, just to name a few, that have told me they want to get out of this business. Some actually do, and most come back. But for all of you out there that have thought about it, you might enjoy this.
To set it up, Chuck Lorre is a writer, director and producer for such shows as The Big Bang Theory, Grace Under Fire, Dharma & Greg, Two and a Half Men, and the new hit Mom. He also publishes these “Vanity Cards” after each show which is his way of doing a blog, and I like them. I haven’t read them all, mainly because I don’t watch every one of his shows. But sometimes I catch one that I like, and this one caught my eye.
I also like the one he wrote about Charlie Sheen after the last episode of Two And A Half Men, below…
We are so Blessed to work in this industry. Yes it can be challenging but that is what makes it so great. We have to use our brains daily to figure it out. This is about making a huge difference in people’s lives. We make the American dream a reality for millions every year. We help those with higher rates get in better loans, so each month they have more money in their pocket to spend which then in turn creates more jobs. We are a special business that has a profound impact on world markets good and bad. What an incredible Blessing to work in our industry. They pay is not too bad either….
