Remove your self-limiting beliefs. via @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
What’s your value proposition? If you don’t know it. You can’t communicate it. You also have to belief it Via @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
@axiommike’s talk on belief might actually help my 10k time this weekend. Lets go for a sub-50! #cmpmortgagesummitPaolo Di Petta
Stand out from your competition. Differentiate yourself via @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Next time someone’s phone rings – in conference – they will be required to sing "Im a Little Teapot" Actions Mandatory – #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
If there’s someone successful you admire and want to emulate, ask them how they do what they do then do it. @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Wishing @GoodeMortgages all the best for his part on stage at #cmpmortgagesummit! #homewithoutavoice 🙁 #sorrytomissVeronica Love-Alex..
Magic formula for success – "Do what you say you are going to do" @axiommike #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
To be successful simply do what you say you’re going to do. That’s it. @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
"Most of our competition sucks. Standing out is easy, just suck less than your competition." – @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest

In the absence of value, price is all you’ve got @axiommike #cmpmortgagesummitIngrid Menninga
If you don’t believe in the value that you offer, go work for nothing. Via @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
"If you live by price, you are die by price – there is always someone who is gonna work for a nickel cheaper than you" #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
"If you live by price, you are die by price – there is always someone who is gonna work for a nickel cheaper than you" #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
‘In the absence of value price is all you’ve got.’ – In the presence of value price is still a factor. #CMPmortgagesummitMarc Crossman
Asking a broker "What is your best rate" is like asking a car salesman "What is the price of a car" #quote @axiommike #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
@axiommike next time use a red Ferrari will you. The yellow one looks like an Acura! #cmpmortgagesummitPhil Fiuza
Explain to yr client if you don’t exist the banks can charge the posted rate. You won’t be around for the bank to match #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
If you don’t believe in the value you provide your clients/customers, you will not be able to do business confidently. #CMPmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Snarky commentary about speakers is usually my specialty, but @axiommike just has me nodding me head in agreement. #cmpmortgagesummitPaolo Di Petta
Set goals. Get knowledge. Take action. Action is the key! Via @axiommike #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest

Gr8 Point @axiommike the HUGE value prop of Mtg Brokers is to show clients how to pay off their mortgage/get out of debt #cmpmortgagesummitIngrid Menninga
Mortgage Brokers can expect to close only 1 out of every 10 Commercial Mortgages – set your expectations accordingly. #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton

Credibility drives word of mouth – #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
When you say the words "Trust Me" to your clients – People are actually less likely to actually trust you – #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Today is #FunFriday at least that’s what one one the tweeters said . I’d love to be having fun at #cmpmortgagesummit . Next time .Andrea Weynschenk
Subtle Commentary here – In a session on "Word of Mouth" the forum assumed is online – when did that change get made? #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Inconsistent marketing messages across the country for a national brand or industry will damage reputation #franchise #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
@andiWeynschenk we will have to make that happen! #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
If all you do is repeat or share existing media, you are not an influencer, you are a 3rd party conveyor of information #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
@andiWeynschenk It’s too bad you missed out this year but we will definitely be back next year! #cmpmortgagesummitCMP Magazine
Speaker just asked who could go a week without their smart phone… I take my phone to the bathroom with me, NO WAY. #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton

@JanKaterynych thanks, there have been some solid presentations, I love live tweeting events when there is good material #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
.@CMPmagazine all in all a good event. I’m disappointed my Twitter for Mortgage Brokers presentation got cut by 15 mins. #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
@CMPmagazine hey – are you at the event? You should come and say hi #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Agree or disagree – contests and sweepstakes are word of mouth marketing? #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
I’m looking forward to @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest

If I hear one more speaker talk about the "New Coke" debacle…. #oldnews… #cmpmortgagesummitPaolo Di Petta

Brokers are necessary from a consumer protection standpoint to keep the banks in line – providing low rates #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
We need to grow up – brokers need to adapt – our industry has to change @gordmccallum #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
New thinking from @gordmccallum #cmpmortgagesummit pic.twitter.com/B2BZSoVlqrKatherine DiPastena
We can’t just talk about increasing in professionalism, we need to actually make the changes – #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Businesses don’t just need to take market share – they need to take market share profitably #cmpmortgagesummit Build companies with value!Jackson Middleton
There isn’t just one way to market. – chose what works for you! @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitIngrid Menninga
3 Keys for Mortgage Industry to Thrive 1-Improved professionalism 2-Grow market share 3-Build companies that have value #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
The goal is to build a business that has value, that can be sold – #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
The goal should be to build a business that has an economy to scale – as you get bigger your costs should not increase #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Don’t do everything! Do what you’re good at @gordmccallum #cmpmortgagesummitIngrid Menninga
The historic mortgage brokerage is just a check clearing house – paying the lions share to brokers – this is not good biz #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
"More isn’t better, better is better! – Economies of Scale don’t always apply" @gordmccallum @KiltedBroker #cmpmortgagesummitPaolo Di Petta
Better is better, not more. Via @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Better is Better – Better does not always mean more! #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Brilliant! "If they come, they will build it." – @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Sometimes price is perception – mortgage brokers have to build a business with high perceived value #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
We need higher performance teams – not higher performance individuals #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
I’m seriously distracted by #cmpmortgagesummit updates in a good way . I probably should tell my clients I’m at a conf all day on #twitterAndrea Weynschenk
@KiltedBroker Incase I haven’t said this enough, thank you so much for the updates! #CMPmortgagesummitNick Bachusky
Need to build high performance team. Think of a Formula One pit crew-Imagine if one person had to do it all @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
#teamwork gets stuff done! You can’t run a successful business alone #cmpmortgagesummitRaviele Vaccaro LLP
@Bachusky no worries Nick, we will have to hook up next #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Build a gr8 team w ppl who specialize in the different areas to make your biz work. Focus on your strengths @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
I highly recommend personality profiling your team and profiling yourself – do what you are best at doing #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
@KiltedBroker Absolutely! I will be at the next one 100% #cmpmortgagesummit Hopefully you have @therobcampbell in check.Nick Bachusky
Don’t be a marketer unless you’re really good at it. Be a mortgage specialist. Via @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
If you aren’t really good at it – you probably shouldn’t be doing it professionally! #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Mortgage brokers have modelled their advertising after REALTORS and that is not a good thing #cmpmortgagesummit @gordmccallumJackson Middleton
Traditional thinking – Broker as a marketerNew thinking – BROKERAGE as marketer (economies of scale) via @gordmccallum #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Having an economy of scale is KEY to a successful business – necessary to comete long term in our industry #cmpmortgagesummit @gordmccallumJackson Middleton
Example of why you shouldn’t do your own marketing ow.ly/1W2XYa #CMPmortgagesummitMichelle Priest
Big companies buy small companies for cash – as long as they have value! #cmpmortgagesummit – doesn’t happen in Mortgages or Real EstateJackson Middleton
Cash flow businesses rarely have a transition out and are worth very little. #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Weird… @KiltedBroker not all of your #CMPmortgagesummit tweets are showing up on my @hootsuite I’m missing good stuff by youMichelle Priest
Greg Williamson @gwilliamsonYYC is right when he says "the lead is the power" via @gordmccallum #cmpmortgagesummitJackson Middleton
Your business/brokerage needs to stop thinking bigger bigger bigger & start thinking profit profit profit #cmpmortgagesummit @gordmccallumJackson Middleton
