Show Notes

Making small changes in your daily routine can add up to big successes over time.  Whether it’s deciding to wake up early, stopping that all-too-easy nightly wine routine, or leaving your work at the end of the driveway, there are habits you can change or implement that will help improve the way you interact with clients, coworkers, family, and loved ones.

My guest today is another invaluable member of the Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group, Nelda Cales.  Nelda is not only a Senior VP and Regional Sales Manager at Atlantic Bay, but also a fantastic coach and mentor.  She has over 20 years of experience in the banking and mortgage lending industry, and she’s here with me today to talk about making and breaking habits.  She tells us about habits that have improved not only her business and sales acumen but also the kind of mom, wife, colleague, and friend she is today.

Lending Forward is a weekly podcast hosted by Taylor Ellard and powered by Atlantic Bay Mortgage Group.  We bring you raw stories from real people in the mortgage industry. We're covering what's next in lending, forward-thinking, and reflecting on lessons learned from Mortgage Bankers, Realtors, Financial Advisors, Coaches, and more! How are you lending it forward?
