On this episode of Broker to Broker, host JP Hussey learns about video content creation and how to pursue your own niche by the Broker Owner of Navigator Mortgage Brokers, Jason Turner. Jason has over a decade of experience in the mortgage industry, and over that time, has become one of the community's leading VA loan experts, as well as one of the most consistent content creators in the wholesale channel. Jason shares how he pursued and found his niche, which has led him to strong, business-growing relationships, as well as the basis for his marketing strategy. Jason shares his secret to how he's able to post high-level content so consistently: “My content day is Monday. I'll actually bring a bunch of different shirts to the office and then just change my shirt, adjust the camera angle, and then it looks like it's a different day where I do stuff off the cuff. I see a question online, I'll do a real quick-hitter - I like to create my content all at once, just to have it done. I get it recorded, edited, and then posted and just spread it out through the week.” Jason shares his strategy for the rest of the week: “I like to plan on my content, and I actually do a lot of research online to see what other people are interested in or talking about. And then let me talk about that. What do the people want and what do they want to learn about? And then bam, here's my timely take on that.” Jason also shares his wisdom on how he was able to get over the hump of creating and releasing content: “Do what you're passionate about - I'm passionate about the VA space, so it's very easy for me to get behind my passion and then speak about it. So if you're fired up about it, the nerves fall to the wayside. So if you do what you're passionate about, it's going to be really easy.” Jason's advice for great business networking, knowledge building, and business growth are one and the same. “Target a niche. You can't be everything to everybody. People know me as a VA guy. If I talk to a bunch of realtors and I sell everything that I have, I'm really not selling anything. But if I sell myself and what I do as a specialty, and then they have that need, then they think of me. So I would absolutely recommend going deep in a niche for whatever people want to do.” Key Points: 2:50 From Laid Off, to Loan Processing, to going Independent 6:09 Opening up Shop during 2020 9:03 From Retail to Broker & the Tools of Wholesale 15:23 Expertise in VA Loans & Debunking VA Myths 22:51 Marketing and the Importance of Video Content Creation 30:05 Overcoming Yourself to Produce Relevant and Consistent Content This episode is sponsored by AIME Member Portal (AMP)
While healthcare professionals top the list of highest-paid occupations in the US with median salaries of $208,000 per year, research shows that physician burnout rate is at an all-time high. Overworked and stretched thin, some doctors end up disengaged from their careers and are looking for alternative ways to earn income so that they can gain back time for themselves and for things that matter most. This is true for many busy, career-oriented individuals across professions who are losing control of their lives and their time and have become enslaved to their jobs and duties. Dr. Nancy Huynh of Clear Vision Investing joins us today to talk in detail about this predicament that many of her colleagues are facing. She believes that one of the ways to support professionals and fight burnout is to create income streams from passive investments. Nancy makes the case for passive real estate investing that can bring in cash flow regularly and allow a physician or any professional to choose to reduce work hours in their workplaces and spend them purposefully. Listen now and learn how growth in passive investing empowers you to gain control of your life and helps you achieve not only financial but time freedom.

Nancy shares business strategies and her approach to accomplishing her mission guided by her “why”. Nancy reveals her projections on the real estate market for 2023 and how she evaluates deals today. Being an ophthalmologist, a real estate investor, a mother among many other roles, how does Nancy create balance in her life?

Strength training can be an important part of your overall wellness plan, helping to build muscles, maintain balance and increase bone density.

Tina Tang, a fitness trainer, is here to tell us why women over 40 should start strength training and the best way to do it.

Why do some women feel heavier after consistent strength training? About Tina Tang - Coach Tina is a Fit at 50 coach, creator of the 4S Formula to help mid-life women get stronger & leaner, and Founder of Iron Strong Fitness. Through her one-on-one coaching and online group fitness classes, she trains women over 40 and teaches them how to take control of their bodies by getting stronger and training consistently. Tina got into fitness super late…age 42! Before that, she was a Wall Street trader, jewelry designer/business owner. At age 40, she went through some unplanned life changes — a difficult divorce and the post-financial crisis economy that pushed her to close her jewelry stores. During that crappy time and for the first time in her life, she turned to working out as her dependable constant. She was going to the gym and taking strength group fitness classes. That was her FIRST foray into strength training. Since starting as a trainer at the age of 42, she has coached over 3,700 sessions, trained herself to her first pull-up to hit a personal record of 14 pull ups (at the age of 49!), and passed a grueling kettlebell coach exam where she snatched (exercise that brings a kettlebell from between the legs to overhead) 36 lbs 100 times within 5 minutes! Strength is her jam. Her proudest achievements include coaching some of her female clients to their first pull ups and competing in their first powerlifting competitions. She has a deep understanding of the needs and physical experiences of middle aged women.

On this episode of Broker to Broker, host Marc Summers learns of the invaluable innovations in networking and marketing from Broker Owner of Third Street Financial, Robert Mahaffey. Robert shares exactly how he's changing and elevating the game for networking and lead generation through organic relationship building, and with proving and providing value in his relationships. Robert has both of these techniques on display through the hosting of his new Realtor Mastermind session series, featuring top-ranking realtors. Robert explains how the game for networking, lead generation, and marketing has changed for Brokers: “I did the parody of the ‘Call Me Maybe' Carly Rae Jepsen song, poking fun at the way that loan officers still think they can market when refinances dry up. They're like, ‘Hey, I just met you. Here's my business card. Call me maybe!'. You just can't go in with rate sheets and donuts anymore; that's the old way that people did it. We've got to provide more value than we ever have before, and we have to prove and provide value before we ask for anything.” Robert shares how he provides incredible value for those who attend and speak at his Mastermind Sessions, through graciously investing his time and providing the resources he has available: “I create reels for the agent, and then I send it to them and I say, ‘Hey, thank you so much for being my guest. I learned a lot about you. I think it was great whether we ever do a deal together or not. I know I've gained a new friend and hopefully, we'll get to work together. But I wanted to give you something; here's the whole recording of our mastermind. And, here's 12 reels that I cut for you without me in it.', It's an organic thing where now I'm investing in them.” Key Points: 1:11 From The Tech Industry to the “2nd Worst Job in America” 6:41 Independent from Day One, to Owning Third Street Financial 11:33 Organic Leads from Organic Conversations 14:37 Proving and Providing Value — Hosting Realtor Mastermind 22:25 Leading by Example and Collaboration 28:35 Hall of AIME, and the Opportunity to Build Relationships This episode is sponsored by Change Wholesale
While we set life goals and business objectives to achieve success, it is our behaviors and ultimately the habits that we form that help us to get there. The consistent, repeated behavior that becomes habits are the small, steady steps that will take us to success. Habits shape who we are - our attitudes, actions, decision-making, and other aspects of our lives. So, it is crucial to build good habits if we want to make a positive transformation in our lives. We are joined in this episode by behavioral science expert Samuel Salzer to help us understand the science of behavior and the power of building positive habits in helping us achieve success in whatever goal we've set. Because forming positive habits isn't always easy, Samuel gives us critical information on the science of building good habits, how they are formed, the strategies we can apply, and how we can set ourselves up for success by starting small. Let's begin our journey of transformation from “thoughtful to thoughtless” and ultimately, to success! Key Points from This Episode: Samuel's backstory and upbringing What's the catalyst that led to Samuel's interest in behavioral economics while at the university in Australia? Samuel's insights on the science behind behaviors and habits. Where should people start if they are looking to make transformations and changes in their lives? Samuel explains the process of building a habit. Proactive and reactive strategies to build the push in beginning a task and becoming productive. Samuel discusses the “thoughtful to thoughtless” journey and how this can be powerfully and effectively utilized. Why it is valuable to take inventory of your current habits if you want to change or build new ones. Cornerstone habits that can give investors one of their highest ROIs. Samuel answers the Rare-Air Questionnaire. Tweetables: “Intentions are not the same as actions.” - Samuel Salzer “Try to make the world better one good habit at a time.” - Samuel Salzer “The basic formula for behavioral science is the person plus situation equals behavior.” - Samuel Salzer “Habit is the behavior done automatically.” - Samuel Salzer “Everyone is different and every situation is different. So you have to approach things from a contextual lens.” - Samuel Salzer “The most successful thing to do is to start small, and then build momentum and then build on that momentum.” - Samuel Salzer “It's a journey from thoughtful to thoughtless.” - Samuel Salzer “Repetitions form habits if they're done in the same time, same place, same context.” - Samuel Salzer “We have a lot to change in our lives. We're not going to climb that mountain in one day. And so start small and start simply and allow yourself to build momentum.” - Tyler Chesser Links Mentioned: Samuel Salzer on LinkedIn Samuel Salzer website Habit Weekly Habit Coach Pro Start at the End: How to Build Products That Create Change by Matt Wallaert Good Habits, Bad Habits by Wendy Wood Mistakes Were Made (But Not by Me) by Elliot Aronson Carol Tavris Dark Matter by Blake Crouch Invest with CF Capital About Samuel Salzer Samuel Salzer is an experienced applied behavioral scientist and advisor helping value-driven organizations around the world to use behavioral science and behavioral economics to build great digital products and services.

In this episode of The Thoughtful Entrepreneur, your host Josh Elledge speaks with Greg Edwards, CEO of Canauri. Greg shares the process by which Canauri could protect, detect and stop ransomware caused by cybercriminals. He says their system could recognize it, kill it and isolate the machine running the ransomware attacks. He adds that ransomware happens all the time - every 11 seconds every day on average - hitting a business or government entity in the United States. He explains that what the ransomware does is devastating to businesses because it locks down all files, so the owner can no longer access them - without paying the ransom or paying for the backup in full. Greg says the majority of vulnerability, about 50% of ransomware, occurs through email. He says that now, the mass majority of malware that gets through is ransomware. He also says that cyber criminals these days are now financially motivated and their mode of payment is in the form of ransomware. Greg provides a few best practices that users can proactively apply to reduce their risk of being attacked: multiple layers of protection, knowing how many assets you have, ensuring network computers are updated with the latest software and security, good password management, multi-factor authentication, advanced antivirus and endpoint detection and response, and security operations centers. He also recommends working with a cybersecurity expert. Key Points from the Episode: Why Ransomware Should be a Concern for Business Owners? The Most Common Way of Ransomware Attacks Best Practices That Users Can Proactively Apply to Reduce Risk of Ransomware About Greg Edwards: Greg is the CEO of Canauri (formerly Cryptostopper), a ransomware protection service that automatically detects and stops active ransomware attacks. He has been a technology entrepreneur since 1998 and has founded numerous companies, including Axis Backup, a backup and disaster recovery company for the insurance industry, which he founded a few years before CryptoStopper. He specializes in disaster recovery, cloud computing, and network security, to name a few. About Canauri: At Canauri, their goal is to make ransomware protection straightforward and successful – that means faster time-to-detection and fewer false positives. In the pursuit of creating advanced next generation systems, companies have overcomplicated their security solutions and excluded tried and true methods. Ransomware protection should be easy to implement and offer more than just defense; it should give you the upper hand. Canauri gives businesses an advantage over their attackers. By using proven systems which emphasize the essentials, they allow businesses to withstand an attack, even after it's reached the internal network. Their system of traps and decoys lowers the time-to-discovery and safeguards one of the most critical elements of a business, its data. Links Mentioned in this Episode: Want to learn more?

His first love in coaching was always cross country running, a sport which he felt made students stronger mentally and physically, and which promoted teamwork and mutual support. The speculative fiction Age-Decoded is Mark's first novel. He wrote it to educate himself and the world about the imminent tsunami of genetic engineering. CRISPR-like technology will impact humans in physical and psychological ways, thus fundamentally affecting what it means to be human. The story peers 100-200 years into the future, allowing the reader to critically imagine this new scientific frontier. Mark has also just published his second book, Run Daughter, Run Father, which provides stories, anecdotes, and scientific advice on running and racing. It highlights the training adventures of him and his daughter Stephanie, whom Mark coached and ran with. The insights are targeted at younger and older age-group competitors. Mark also competes in triathlons and represented Canada in the 2019 World Age-Group Championships in Lausanne, Switzerland. He also recently qualified for the World Age-Group Championships in Spain in 2023. As hobbies, Mark enjoys acrylic art and snooker. His education includes BSc, MBA, and PhD (University of Toronto).

As we age and gain new experiences, our brain changes and it becomes evident that we can't hold every piece of information and knowledge that we encounter at all times. More often, we only retain information that is immediately useful or relevant to our present needs. But, we also want to remember crucial information that we've read today at a time in the future when it is needed, right? In this episode, CTPO, speaker, author, MIT instructor Mark Herschberg and I discuss this topic in more detail. As an author faced with the challenge of readers' recall and retention, Mark created an app called Brain Bump designed to help users remember information, data, and materials from books, blogs, podcasts, classes, talks, and other resources whenever they are needed. If you are in the business of investing, or in any business for that matter, you'll need access to as much information as you can to run your business efficiently and to have meaningful engagement with clients and investors. Listen until the end and you'll learn invaluable tips to protect yourself and your business from cyberattacks. Key Points from This Episode: What makes 21st-century learning different? Why did Mark create the Brain Bump app? Why do most people not retain what they read? How does the technique of “spaced repetition” help retain information? The two ways when most people need information. Mark discusses the Brain Bump app and how it helps users access information when they need them. How can we use media channels more efficiently? Where can the Brain Bump app be downloaded? Mark talks about cybersecurity and the persistent threat of cyberattacks. Measures that companies, businesses, and individuals should take to protect against cyberattacks. Safety tips against bank fraud or wire fraud. Tweetables: “We live in the most abundant time in human history with regard to sharing information, and sharing perspectives and thoughts.” - Tyler Chesser “Even when a reader reads a book, a business book, a self-help book, something with advice, say, wow, there's great advice here. And then you forget it two weeks later. You forget 90%-95% of it. That is a problem. And so there's a problem for the author and a problem for the reader.” - Mark Herschberg “Media is traditionally linear. We listen to this episode, front to back, first to last. We read a book from first to last. We watch a TV show from start to finish. Exceptions are encyclopedias or dictionaries, you generally don't read that first page to last, you jump in, you get what you need, and you leave. More of our media will shift in this direction.” - Mark Herschberg “By chopping up the content from an episode, from a book and putting it in this nonlinear order, we make it more relevant. It's like a "choose your own adventure" that you grab what is right for you.” - Mark Herschberg “The teacher is who learns the most.” - Tyler Chesser “For any company or individual, it's not a matter of “if” but “when” you run into a cybersecurity issue.” - Mark Herschberg “You will be attacked, you will be hacked. It's about being prepared and having your defenses there.” - Mark Herschberg Links Mentioned: Brain Bump App The Career Toolkit Mark Herschberg on LinkedIn Invest with CF Capital About Mark Herschberg Mark Herschberg is the author of “The Career Toolkit: Essential Skills for Success That No One Taught You” and creator of the Brain Bump app. From tracking criminals and terrorists on the dark web to creating marketplaces and new authentication systems, Mark has spent his career launching and developing new ventures at startups and Fortune 500s and in academia, with over a dozen patents to his name. He helped to start the Undergraduate Practice Opportunities Program, dubbed MIT's “career success accelerator,” where he teaches annually.

On this episode of Broker to Broker, host JP Hussey sits down with Broker/Owner of Treasure Coast Mortgage, Emmett Dempsey. Emmett has an invaluable wealth of experience that he's bringing to the table. From globetrotting in the military, to varied jobs and positions within numerous channels in the Real Estate industry, Emmett has a perspective of the mortgage broker channel that few can match. Emmett shares the marketing and business strategies that he's utilized to great success with Treasure Coast Mortgage, and notes that a business and marketing strategy can be one and the same; an established catalog of educational content. Emmett utilizes YouTube as means to educate and motivate tentative homebuyers off the fence, as to spread awareness of his brand by providing education and resources for borrowers. Emmitt explains how easy it is to establish and build a catalog of content that resonates with people. “Explain different concepts to clients, like loan estimates and closing disclosures. Make those videos a part of your in-process marketing — you know when you record a video for individuals sometimes? Record it one time and it lives forever.” Emmitt explains how these videos are utilized: “Build a consistent catalog. As soon as they find content that they like, they'll watch everything. They'll get into a suggested video loop on YouTube, or they'll dig through your Instagram to your old videos. Now, a common thing I hear is: I watched all of your stuff!” Key Points: 4:10 From Korea and Kosovo, to Two Decades in Real Estate 9:41 Starting a Successful Brokerage in April 2020, and Thriving Through COVID 18:01 How to Specialize with Niche Loans 26:53 Marketing Strategies, and Inspiration from Gary Vee 32:56 How to Build Credibility through a YouTube Catalog 40:36 The Need for Brokers: 100,000 LOs chasing 1,000,000 Agents, Doing 3,500,000 Sales This episode is sponsored by PRMG
Testimonials are a powerful tool that can really get people to take action. As a seller, you may be familiar with promoting your products and trying to persuade buyers. But when someone else who has already bought the product leaves their own positive review, it can be much more effective in convincing buyers of its quality.Most infomercials don't convert because they spend too much time talking about the product and not enough time talking about how it can benefit the user. To be more successful, people should focus on creating stories of people who have used the product and add that section early in the ad. In this episode, Belinda dives into why it's best to use more customer testimonials than facts to sell your product. She will explain how buyers will find other customers' stories more convincing than the facts that you can provide as a seller. As the old business adage goes - "Facts tell, but stories sell". Don't miss this helpful advice on how to use testimonials to increase sales. Snapshot of the Key Points from the Episode:[02:01] Why are testimonials the most powerful ingredient in your sales strategy?[04:23] Why most of the ads today do not convert.[09:20] The importance of using testimonials, whether verbal or written.About the Host -Belinda Ellsworth is a Speaker, Trainer, Best-Selling Author, and PodcasterShe has been a professional speaker, mover, and shaker for more than 25 years.

After growing up in the rural town of Portola in Northern California and barely graduating high school, Tim Rhode found himself at the age of 25 working as a grocery clerk with two young children to provide for. He eventually found his “niche” selling real estate; and from 1986 to 2000, he sold over 2,500 homes and from 1997 to 2006 he invested in over 100 properties. Tim focused on saving money, keeping his expenses low, and playing solid “financial defense” which allowed him to basically retire, and he was financially free at the age of 40. Not wanting to play hike, bike or ski all day, Tim threw his energy into his true passion: helping people thrive and live their most fulfilling life. He founded the nonprofit 1Life Fully Lived to help people of all ages gain the tools and skills they need to thrive and also co-founded GoBundance, a high-level mastermind, with David Osborn, Pat Hiban and Mike McCarthy to help healthy, wealthy, generous people lead epic lives.
