My career in consumer finance has spanned four decades, from account collections to loan approvals – and a little bit of everything in between; from retail product financing to home mortgage lending. Working it, teaching it, managing it – enjoying it!
“Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
- Joshua 1:9
Humbled By Three Things
Some of my favorite things include reading, traveling, prayer time, church, podcasts, working out, wine and all things Red Sox, Celtics, Patriots and PC Basketball.
A Typical Day for Me
Up early. Read, read, read: scripture, motivational & business books. Load daily articles from online news sources. Do the kid thing, walk the dog, prayer time and head to the office.
At Shamrock, a little MBWA*, then executive or department staff meetings mixed in with reading reports or informational briefings from staff, return calls and respond to daily/monthly/quarterly goals till late afternoon.
*managing by walking around
Walk the dog listening to a podcast then hit the gym. Get home and work for 20-30 minutes, shower, and have dinner with family in the early evening, spend time with the kids, do some reading, watch sports and head to bed for 9:30 or so.
