Mindset + Mechanics = Momentum. -Jen Du Plessis
Dr. Willey Jolley says, “Rich is great, but wealth is better.”
Learn more about Sue...
Celebrating 40 years in the lending industry in March 2023, Jen’s accomplishments through the years are a testament to her proven theory on the relationship between motivation and mindset, helping her rise through the ranks. Starting her career as a receptionist/set-up clerk she is now a sought-after speaker, mentor, and contributor in the industry. Her podcast, Mortgage Lending Mastery celebrates ten years in January 2023 and is the longest-running podcast in the mortgage space.
Jen believes motivation is an outside job requiring each person to seek people, conferences, and resources to receive that brief moment of inspiration leading to action. Inspiration is the harder work, the daily habits of mindset over mechanics. When we find vision, intention, and purpose through daily meditation, prayer, self-care, personal and professional development, self-awareness, and healthy habits in all areas of our life, it allows us to wake up each day with the energy, desire, drive, and motivation to achieve everything we desire. Mindset + Mechanics = Momentum. The result?People are drawn to those with vision.
With each passing year, Jen’s vision is more cultivated by the achievements of women globally. She feels honored to be part of an amazing industry that allows women their own empowerment to succeed in anything they choose. She believes the challenge for the future is for women to step outside their comfort levels to realize the power they already possess.
"We need women at all levels, including the top, to change the dynamic, reshape the conversation, to make sure women’s voices are heard and heeded, not overlooked and ignored."
– Sheryl Sandberg
