“I don’t need help. I can do everything myself!” It’s an all-too-familiar line for many mortgage brokers. The problem is, they sometimes become so proud that they’re unwilling to consider making changes when their business actually needs it. But the truth is, trying to do everything yourself costs you time and money. And if you’re unable to outsource any work, you’re not building a business - you’re building yourself a high-paying job.
In this episode of Mortgage Broker Acceleration, James Veigli and Ash Playsted discuss one of the biggest traps mortgage brokers fall into – the pride trap. They talk about why it’s so easy to fall into it (especially if you’re a successful broker) and share some great tips and mindset shift ideas that’ll help you escape the trap.
