Inner Edison Podcast

Achieving success is not easy, but it is definitely possible. Entrepreneurs, leaders, and individuals who have succeeded, know that failure is an integral part of the journey. Like Thomas Edison, who famously said, “I have not failed. I’ve just found 10,000 ways that won’t work,” these individuals understand that failure is a necessary step in the process of growth and success. Embrace failure, learn from it, and you will achieve great success.

Everyone at Lending for Living was fantastic in helping us purchase our second home.

What a fabulous experience I had with Lending for Living. Ed was friendly and knowledgeable. Right from the start, the cards were face up on the table. Ed was clear, and straight to the point with options. He made my feel confident, and trusting, with the process. But we’re talking about Ed here… comes to be expected from the owner of the business. Even though it’s not always so. Where Lending for Living really separates themselves from others, is the entire team demonstrates the same effort! I worked seamlessly with the staff to complete my loan. Fabiola in particular. Wow! Precise and prompt, to say the least. What she said, is what she did. When she said she would do it… is when it was done. Not once, not twice, but every time, without question. I never had to wonder. That was huge for me, in a time dependent situation as loans are. I would recommend Lending for Living to anyone who wants, hard working, experienced people to assist in purchasing a home. Not a doubt in my mind, when I make another purchase, their phone will be ringing. Much appreciation I have toward Lending for Living and the Team behind them! Thank you!!
