WHAT'S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU'VE EVER RECEIVED?
Always take the high road. My father taught me this at a young age. Servicing the mortgage industry takes integrity and character. Taking the high road means making the tough decisions even though they may not be popular or easy. This piece of advice has been instrumental in my life and the growth of Land Gorilla. I hope that some day my son finds it as valuable as I have.
