I am writing you today from my hotel room at the Mirage in Las Vegas. Yesterday I attended Leonard Rosen's 23rd National Hard Money Conference, where I served as one of the panelists during the Round Table discussion.
I simply loved this conference.
I have owned Blackburne & Sons, a hard money commercial lender, for more than 30 years. I thought I knew it all. Oops. Not even close.
Leonard Rosen does a pretty brilliant thing at these conferences. He doesn't pretend to know it all. Instead, he brings in five to six experts on various topics about starting a hard money mortgage company. Then he let's the experts do the teaching.
For example, I was fascinated as his securities law expert, the Honorable Jonathan Hornik of LaRocca Hornik, spoke about how to form a mortgage pool.
Then Leonard's son, Matt, gave a fascinating presentation on Social Media. I learned to stop selling on Twitter, LinkedIn, and YouTube in favor of giving my readers helpful information. "People only buy from people they like and they trust."
And Leonard Rosen himself is one of the warmest, most generous men I have ever met. He has created numerous millionaires, and many of them came back to his conference to share their verbal proof stories. Using Leonard's training, they have built thriving hard money shops, with tens of millions of dollars in loan servicing portfolios.
If you have ever debated whether to attend one of Leonard Rosen's National Hard Money Conferences ... do it! By the way, there were attendees from as far away as Singapore and Australia.
