Key Take Aways From Mortgage Revolution San Francisco

By · May 13, 2010 · Filed in Mortgage Revolution


Mortgage Revolution San Francisco started off with an incredible bang as Todd Duncan todd_duncanwowed us with his outstanding keynote speech. People from the event are constantly asking the Mortgage Revolution fan page when his speech will be available on video. His speech was that impacting and I will do my best to share his exceptional points with you. Todd Duncan’s speech is available now.

Life Is Hard…

This is how he began his speech as he shared his own financial & personal struggles. There wasn’t a dry eye in the audience as he shared about the recent death of his wife to cancer as we viewed the picture of him and his 2 boys huddled on a beach. There will be a video of his speech available in the very near future, but for now I’ll summarize his key points.

Balancing Life & Work

He challenged us to make every effort to have balance with family life and work. It’s important to make money AND make memories with your family. He shared a story about walking on a wire without a net. One way to keep balance is to never stop moving in a steady fashion which is true in business and in life.

Making Memories

It is so easy to get caught up in work, look at the clock and it is 8 pm! It is vital to commit to a plan to make memories with your family and fight for flexibility. Crave efficiency and productivity in your business. He said never miss out on an opportunity to make a memory. My husband took this to heart later that day by taking a walk along the bay. Little did we know that as he pulled me closer to him to create a memory, I twisted my ankle and broke my shoe! :) We couldn’t stop laughing at this new memory maker moment.

Taking Risks

Todd shared to start asking some questions about your business:

  1. What are your current business opportunities?
  2. Will it add value to you?
  3. Does it make a difference in other lives?
  4. Will it impact your community in a positive way?
  5. Are you trapped in the ordinary of your industry?

He suggested to start a focus group or a mastermind to collaborate on ideas and make things happen in your business. Be sure to get rid of the negative junk inside of you because it will manifest itself on the outside and in your business. It is important to surround yourself with positive people, thoughts and emotions to really make a powerful mark in your business.


It was challenging to attend various sessions as many people stopped to speak with me about the session that I lead with Mark Madsen on Mortgage Blogging 101 and Social Media Promotion.

The sessions that I attended were Extreme 203K Makeover & How To Create A Facebook Fan Page To Attract Referring Real Estate Agents Like Flies To A Picnic.

I will share tidbits about these sessions in another blog post that is featured on The Niche Report. Be sure to read that post to gain more golden nuggets of wisdom.

Here is a fun gallery of pics from Mortgage Revolution:
