"Prior to LaunchPad, there was so much information and a million different directions to take in starting a career in the mortgage business that I felt lost. I could not imagine how I could find the confidence I would need to succeed. However, in just three weeks, I feel more confident in my knowledge and abilities and I look forward to building my business as an APM Loan Officer."
