If the Shoe Doesn’t Fit, Don’t Wear It

Today’s message is about recognizing when a relationship just isn’t the right fit. As mortgage loan originators working the Marketing Animals Daily Success Plan, we seek out new referral partners every day. We reach out, set up meetings, get to know them, follow up consistently, and hopefully, start to get some referral business. But along the way, we sometimes discover that we’re just not a good fit with certain partners.

Maybe their way of doing business doesn’t align with ours. It could be a personality clash, or perhaps another reason that makes the partnership feel off. Many originators try to force these relationships to work because they don’t want to lose the potential business. However, this can lead to an unpleasant or uncomfortable work experience, which isn’t necessary.

If the relationship doesn’t work, it’s okay to let it go. This doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong with the referral partner; it simply means the fit isn’t right. At Mortgage Marketing Animals, we continuously reach out to new referral partners because things change. Personalities and work ethics come to light, allowing us to be more selective with our relationships.

Remember, if the shoe doesn’t fit, you don’t have to wear it. Keep seeking out those who are a better match for you and your business.
