Ron Schulz shared with us about the difference dedication, hard work, and 42 seconds made in his career!

Ron does residential mortgage lending.  Whether it is purchase, refinance or whatever, if it has to do with where you live, what you rent out, or where you vacation, he can handle the financing on it!

For Ron, one of the most fun parts of the DEA meetings starts at 6:30am, when some of the early networking starts!  He didn’t want to brag, but they have solved all of the world’s problems!  Though Ron suspects that Dr. Paul is spying on them for research for a future book!

A few months ago, during the 6:30 early networking, Keith Brown shared how a co-worker landed an incredible vein of business from a discussion he had sitting in a restaurant waiting for a table.  That reminded Ron of 42 seconds in his career.

Ron attended college on a baseball scholarship.  After graduating in 1984, he was drafted by the Philadelphia Phillies with a $1500 signing bonus!  Ron worked really hard at rookie camp.  Then he got a call from a firm on the exchange floor, offering an unbelievable job opportunity.  He talked with his coach to see if he could make it to the Majors.  His coach said, “Schultzee, if I could take your determination and work ethic and put it in someone who had talent, I’d have a major league ball player.  Take the job.”…
