Mortgages on the Main Line

Welcome to my blog. My name is Jason and I am a mortgage consultant on the Main Line outside of Philadelphia, PA. Feel free to follow me to see posts regarding real estate and mortgages, as well as my other passions - health and wellness, motivation, leadership, martial arts, and spirituality. When I see something I think can benefit the community, I will gladly post. Some posts will be my own thoughts, but many/most will be credited with the author or blog I'm sharing knowledge from. I'd like this site to be a collection of my favorite blog posts, quotes, industry news, etc.

Looking forward to connecting with you all, so please feel free to drop me a line.

Best wishes!

Great thought for the weekend

With so little time on Earth, it’s important that we all have a clear idea of what we want from life. And with that in mind, we should use every opportunity that comes our way as a step towards achieving our dreams. - Sir Richard Branson

Action, action, action. Speaks much louder than words. People look for inspiration to hit them, but usually, taking some small steps on your own will allow the inspiration to come.

From Tim: Measuring Sticks!

From my man Tim comes another great post. You may not want to hear it, but you should. He’s right. 100%. Enjoy and happy Friday! 

Don’t aim at success–the more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side-effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long run–in the long run, I say–success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think of it.

Thank you Tim Mcauley for the wonderful piece on success this week. As such, I felt the need to share a quote Tim used in his piece. I’ve read it many times this week so far. Please enjoy.

It is from Victor Frankl’s “Man’s Search for Meaning” pages 16-17. Although I am not familiar with Mr Frankl or his work, I think this quote is wonderful no matter what one’s views may be.

A great tribute to Bruce Lee - wanted to share!

Great quote from Sir Richard on a tip for success in starting a business. I’m keeping this in mind as I build “my team” for the future.

The Go-Giver - 1st reader response!

Good morning everyone, I hope the start of summer is finding everyone well. My apologies for not posting in awhile; there was a time of reflection I am coming out of and feel in the right state to back back to a few posts a week.

My friend Stephanie, who I passed “The Go-Giver” to, was generous enough to read and pass to a friend of hers. The first reader thoughts from my experiment are below. To refresh your memory, I am passing the book along in the hopes that people who are presently strangers to me, can be toughed by the gift of Misters Burg and Mann’s book. I am curious to see how many people can read the copy of the book I purchased, and also how  far away from Valley Forge, PA (yes, George Washington Valley Forge) this book can travel :) Please enjoy the comments below, and have a great week!

"I loved it and read it all the way through in one sitting. Couldn’t put it down. I am new to real estate and this is a good manual as to how to run your business and your life. This is the way I lived years ago but wasn’t aware that over time my generous ways fell by the wayside. People would just give me things for no reason, so I thought, but then realized I was giving them time and compassion and real interest in their stories, something not many have the time and energy for. I am one of the masses lately and not taking time or finding genuine interest in others. I noticed the response I get is very different. Life is way more magical with true connections and with concern for others well being and success. Thanks for sharing."

My buddy Rich had this on Facebook today, I thought it was a great piece to reflect on as we approach the end of the week. 
Happy Friday everyone!

Happy Friday everyone!

Wanted to share some photos from my recent trip to Naples, FL this past week. My cousin Rob invited me down to his condo for a few days of golfing and not caring about my fitness diet :)

I had a blast - it’s important to recharge the batteries once in awhile, and I feel very energized heading into May. My close friend and karate instructor, Master Mike Pannulla is getting married tomorrow to a truly amazing woman. I cannot wait to attend the ceremony and party - it’s going to be Epic. Congrats to Mike and Jenn!

Enjoy your weekends all. Best.
