Hey, this is Amy Valdivia with American Financial Network, and if you want to learn the six and seven figure science to success, significantly increase your revenue, and learn how to successfully build professional relationships, you should be listening to Sell Without Selling podcast with my good friend, Stacey O’Byrne.
Stacey: Amy, welcome to the show. Thanks so much for coming on.
Amy: Thank you for having me. I am so happy to be here.
Stacey: I am ecstatic you’re here. You know I’ve known you for a while and I’ve had the pleasure of watching you achieve so many different levels of success. And it’s just been so cool to watch. So tell us about your journey in the lending industry. 30 years experience. That’s pretty crazy.
Amy: Yeah. I stumbled right into it. I was in college, of course, looking for jobs. That’s what college students do – anything to make a little extra cash, and answered an ad for an office clerk/secretarial position. I showed up to work first day at the job, and this burly old man that I was working for in this small little strip mall in Covina said, “You know, you’re a loan processor.” It surprised me and I said, “I thought I was just a secretary, or answering your phones or what have you.” And he said, “No. If I put loan processor, none of y’all would have answered the ad.” He said, “I have to run out. I have to run some errands, so I am going to lock you in the office,” gave me a phone number to one of the underwriters for the company that he sent a lot of business to, and said, “Call her. She’ll tell you what to do. Figure it out.”
