As brokers, most of us network and socialise with other mortgage brokers on a regular basis. That’s a good thing and a bad thing. It can be bad because when you’re inside the proverbial jar, you can’t read the label outside. And that means you can miss out on the big picture. More than that, you run the risk of being unable to innovate because you’re inside an echo chamber.
In this episode of Mortgage Broker Acceleration, James Veigli and Ash Playsted explore how you can get outside the jar. Discover how stepping outside of your usual professional circle can lead you to moments of absolute blinding clarity.
