EPISODE 1 – Pilot

Erin
Welcome to the main voyage, of journey to 44 million. I am one half of your Host, Erin Leck, a 28 year veteran of my, of the mortgage industry. And I’d like to introduce my good friend and colleague sue hall. Say hello sue.

Sue
Hi, I’m super excited to be here. I’m sue hall for those of you who don’t know me, but in the mortgage business since 1986 that was back when they had covered wagons there are alot change. Super excited to be here. Um, can’t wait to share all these great stories with everybody.

Erin
Yeah. You know, it’s, it’s taken us a while to get to this point. I think it’s, it’s gonna be a lot of fun and really what the journey to 44 million is, is this, it’s interviews with top producers, but it’s hopefully going to be a little bit more than, than just interviews. You know, we’re hoping to, to hear some great stories, some great starts, some rough beginnings, um, to really, uh, really find out more about what, what makes some of the top producers tick and gained some valuable insights. Um, for all of us, hopefully it’s something that we can, we can all learn from, um, through the course of, of what we hope will be dozens and dozens of, of interviews. Um, one of the things Sue that, that you and I have laughed quite a bit about is, is how we actually got to the name journey to 44 million and how we pick the number 44. And so I thought we’d make it quick run to run through that just because it’s really, really pertinent to what we’re trying to do. What does the, what, why 44, what does the four represent?

Sue
So truly, actually when we first started this, Aaron had this great idea and it was the journey to 50 million and 50 million years, a big number. And I know a lot of people would love to close 50 million a month, but we started looking at the, um, at numbers and the meaning of numbers. And when we did that, we realized that 44 represented so much more than 50 in the reality of being a loan originator. So when you look at the numbers, the number 44, um, four in the 44 represents a leap of faith. And truly being a loan originator is a leap of faith. You have to have a strong faith in that things are going to come. It’s a journey for sure. Yeah. The number 40 represents routine and stability and to be a top producer, it definitely takes a system, a daily routine, and a stable long term commitment and a long term investment. So there came the journey to 44 million.

Erin
Yeah, it was awesome how we got to that point too. You know, I mean, it was obviously a little bit of help from our mentor Richard Milligan, but it was, it was funny how that just kind of all what the four represented and what the 40 represented. It’s perfect for I think, what we’re, what we’re going to try to accomplish. don’t you think?.

Sue
Absolutely. I think for me, you know, I’ve always been passionate about people and helping people, you know, meet their dreams. And so for me, bringing this life and day to day with those great producers, I’m super excited. Yeah. Our own personal leap of faith to, if you could have seen us wrestling with the technology that we’ve got here to get to this point, we made it. So as far as the, the, uh, the journey goes and the podcast goes, you know, ultimately what we, what we’d like to do is to have a, uh, to have a Vimeo channel where you can actually see us interview, um, the, uh, the loan officers and see sue and I as we, as we converse with them. Um, we’re also gonna post all of our, all of the, uh, recordings across, you know, many social media platforms. So probably, uh, linkedin for sure. Twitter for sure. Instagram, um, Facebook, um, and anything else that, that as we, as we kind of move along, we find is, is useful. We’ll place the, uh, the podcasts on those, on those platforms.

Erin
So, um, we’re really, really excited about it. Sue, and I, I’m grateful that you chose to take the journey with, uh, with me. I think you’re going to bring a ton of amazing insights. I mean you are a true servant leader and I know that, that, that what we, uh, what we do together with the interviews is going to be not only a lot of fun, but it’s going to be interesting and personal and I’m really excited about it. So I think, look for our first interview here and the next, the next few weeks, um, we’re really looking forward to meeting some, some amazing producers on this journey. Um, we know, I know, know quite a few of them myself personally, sue, I know that, that you have a handful of people that you know, that are going to be really, really fun to have on here. They’ve got incredible stories, ideas, and, and, uh, and we’re going to discuss a lot about our dynamic journeys. So stay tuned. The journey to 44 million podcast number two will be coming up in a couple of weeks. Thanks for listening and we look forward to seeing you on our journey. See you soon.
