From the best lesson he ever learned to why he entered the reverse mortgage industry, we get the personal and professional facts from Robert Beverly, owner of Americ'a Reverse Title Co., in our monthly edition of The Hot Seat.

When I was younger I wanted to be a Major League Baseball player.

Every morning I read the newspaper, check my emails and work out.

I can't go without a good cup of coffee and a fine cigar.

Right now I’m listening to The Beatles. My favorite band ever.

My parents taught me how to love, forgive and be honest.

The best lesson I've ever learned was to never give up, always keep trying and always finish strong.

A good friend is something rare. If you can have one true friend in life, then you are blessed.

My favorite two books are The Great Gatsby and The Count of Monte Cristo.

I always try to laugh or find some humor every day. Life is way too short.

I've never been late; I’m either early or right on time.

I never miss an episode of Baseball Tonight on ESPN.

The worst purchase I've ever made were shoe insoles from an infomercial. They were the worst and they hurt. I think my back actually got worse.

My favorite website is Facebook. It’s a great way to keep in touch with all of my family around the country.

My favorite quote is, “There’s nothing you can do that can’t be done. Nothing you can sing that can’t be sung. Nowhere you can be that isn’t where you’re meant to be. It’s easy. All you need is love.”  – The Beatles

Ten years from now the reverse mortgage industry will be explosive. The baby boomers will be seeking reverses in record numbers.

Industry growth is dependent upon educated originators who truly care about the well-being of seniors, and less government regulations.

People should seek a career in the reverse mortgage industry because they truly enjoy working with our seniors and taking the time to get to know them. Our seniors are living history books.

The best job I've ever had is right now. Owning America’s Reverse Title has been a blast and a complete joy so far.

I entered this industry because it is so satisfying to help a senior keep their home. To see the smiles on their faces, and hear them thank you, is just priceless.
