When I started in the mortgage business almost 5 decades ago, I had no idea what it was all about. I was going to college to be a CPA and working three jobs. I was offered a processing job with regular hours and I said yes. This began my love of the mortgage industry.

I was working as a loan processor and my boss said he could not afford to pay me, so it was find another job or become a loan officer. Back then it was called “Go on the Street”.  I was a single parent with a two-year-old. What was I to do? I needed to support us, child care was expensive and child support was meager. After much soul searching and prayer I decided what the heck, I can do this. I know how to put a loan together and get it to closing, so why not?

Here is what I did in the beginning.

I hope it helps you with some great ideas!
