Cool Stuff I Learned From Joe Stumpf


Steven Marshall's Mastermind 2013

I took the opportunity to attend Steven Marshall’s Mastermind 2012 conference in Las Vegas.   Not only does Steven put on some of the best conferences that I’ve ever been to, the lineup of speakers and presenters was phenomenal.

<<<====Come on now….Share the Love!

One of my long term favorites is Joe Stumpf with By Referral Only.  He had some exceptionally good information, as always, but the attendance in his breakout room was pretty sparse.  That’s understandable, because Joe is better known in the Real Estate world than the Mortgage Industry and this was a very mortgage-specific event.

What was cool, though, was that Joe set up a live-stream and had hundreds – or maybe thousands – of people from all over the world attending via webcast.  Now that’s a great use of technology.  Plus, as he was presenting he would address the webcast crowd and have them communicate via social media channels like Facebook and Twitter.

What a great example of using social media to get your advocates spreading the word.  I learned a lot just taking in how he and his team put it all together, let alone the nuggets I was writing down.

I would have needed a recorder to get all the details, but here a few gems I picked up.  Enjoy!
