    I’ll be honest… quotes on social media annoy me and I’m the first to scroll past. BUT…. Mr Kennedy has a point here, so I thought I’d share it.

    “The purpose of life is to contribute in some way to making things better.”

    Robert F. Kennedy

    The question is “what does BETTER actually mean, especially in the mortgage industry. Is it…

    Better customer service? Always

    Better tech? Usually

    Better mortgage products? Hopefully

    For me though, the sentence can’t end with the word “better.” It needs to end “…better than yesterday”

    I think all we can do is to KEEP working, and KEEP trying, and KEEP getting better.

    Whatever that is – service, tech, products. Everything.

    At My Simple Mortgage we’re just completely committed to that idea. Making what we do better than how we did it yesterday.

    I’m not particularly concerned with how my colleagues in other companies do it. As long as we did it better ourselves today than we did yesterday.

    And in May… well we’re going to be a whole lot BETTER than we are today. Better tech, better service… better EVERYTHING…
