Top LOs are allowed to complain
Just because you’re making great money doesn’t mean you aren’t allowed to be in pain.
Money alone won’t end the stress.
However, You CAN buy your time back… if you invest in improving your systems.
Systems are exactly why you will see top-producers enjoying vacations, enjoying hobbies, and spending time with friends and family. The money alone isn’t making their business run on auto-pilot. What they did was use the money to build systems that allow their team to close loans on their own without you constantly watching over the process.
There is a saying, “More money, more problems.”
This must have been written by a loan officer without business systems.
Use the money to create systems to turn your mortgage business into a well-oiled machine. Doing this allows you to remove yourself from the busy work and get back to the things you love. The system should use each team member in the best way to maximize return on investment. I know, it sounds heartless when you put a dollar amount on each person’s work… But, this is business. And, IT’S YOUR LIFE! You are the owner of this opportunity and you deserve the freedom that comes with ownership.
Please, don’t forget that you are a business owner. Loan officers control their own destiny and the lifestyle that they want to live.
