“I have trouble seeing one thing I had to overcome to succeed. It’s been all the things. This industry is hard, it’s constantly changing and ever demanding. There is always something to overcome, some new challenge to take on, some new thing to learn and adapt to. But it’s what I love about the business and our industry. I had to overcome my insecurities as a 23-year-old, first-time loan officer. And all I can say, is bring on the next one!”
