Whether you believe it or not, we are all in this together so it works best for each of us if we help each other out. I know that we are all fighting internal battles that nobody really knows anything about. However you have to realize that you are probably not the first in your particular situation nor will you be the last.
In regards to my field, as a mortgage broker there are probably thousands of us across the country. Many more if you add the mortgage specialists who work directly for the banks. Yet even though we work mostly by ourselves and for ourselves a little cooperation can go a long way. I had a file that I was having a challenge getting it approved and funded, I reached out to one of my friends who is a mortgage specialist for a bank and he was able to get it done. Simple as that.
A few years ago I reached out to Dustan Woodhouse a prominent broker in BC who wrote a series of books called “Be the better Broker”. Not only did he take the time to talk with me, someone he didn’t know from Adam, he actually sent me copies of his book. I was blown away by his gesture.
We need more people like Dustan who go out of their ways to help other people. The world will be a much better place if we all turned the focus less on ourselves and more toward others. A cool little side benefit is that the more you give the better you will feel.
With the theme of today’s post you really need to check out Sam Roberts singing We’re all in this together with his kids.
I look forward to hearing from you in regard to your mortgage needs.
