 Our guest this week is Alex McFadyen.  Alex is a mortgage broker from Langley BC. He’s a long-time friend of the show, who has been growing his business like crazy. What we love about Alex is that he learns new stuff and actually applies it. With his mascot pug Ernie, he has some of the best branding out there and makes some of the best videos in the industry.
