One good thing about the running is the multi-tasking.I can think about the business while running and alsonot feeling too tired.
Saturday, we went to Angel island of San Francisco. While my wife and daughter took the 1 hour bus tour around the island, I decided to run around the island.And I finished about 10 minutes faster(They had to stopon a few sites)
While running, I think about how to focus on the mortgage business. Then I decided to read all the seller's guide from the lenders I am doing business with. And if the business will not pick up anytime soon, I will read thewhole Fannie Mae guide.
I remembered that from 2002 to 2004, I did loans only with provident funding, I read all the whole sellers guide. And I know more about it than some underwriters(I remembered once the underwriter would not approve myloan, and I told her that one which page of the seller's guideit said that this loan qualified). And we know ProvidentFunding is a very strict, A-paper lender, but I closed a few alt-A loans with them(when the market was so crazy 2007-2008years). Not a lot of loan agents knew that we could do thoseloans with Pf.
That's my way of "sharpening the saw". And I will re-reada few books. Glad that I finished "What the dog Saw" again,and re-started "Little Green Book of Getting Your Way: How to Speak, Write, Present, Persuade, Influence, and Sell Your Point of View to Others". I can finish this one intwo weeks.
