What is one habit that has helped you succeed?

Embracing curiosity. A spirit of curiosity is what led me to begin analyzing the data behind loans transacted on the Maxwell platform. That path eventually led us to build the first iteration of our data analytics platform, an offering that will increasingly help lenders surface and contextualize market trends.
