Chris Kolinski is our guest this week. Chris’s first deal came from Facebook and he never stopped pursuing that avenue of generating business.

Scott and Chris talk about how he got into the mortgage brokering world, how removing bad influences from your life can make you more successful, and of course how to make use of social media to set yourself apart.
