Today we have Hector Santiesteban joining us to talk about the world of podcasting, growing a small business, and building a personal brand. I met Hector at a Front Row Dads Mastermind and knew immediately that he would be perfect for our show. Hector has been working on his passion of broadcasting since Middle School. In a twist of irony, we had an audio issue on this podcast about podcasts, but we fixed it as much as we can and like they say, the show must go on!

Quickly- I’m Scott Groves – Husband, Father, Loan Officer, Coach, Author, Podcaster, and Recent Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

This podcast is paid for and brought to you by…. by me, Scott Groves 🙂

Because I think these kind of long form conversations are valuable, I pay for 100% of the production of this show out of my pocket. This channel is FAR from monetization and because of the subject matter, may never be monetized.

I am a Mortgage Loan Officer & Loan Officer Coach in real life. It’s the money that I earn, from helping home-buyers and home-owners obtain home-loans, that pays for this show. If you, your friends, or your family are looking for a home loan from an honest Loan Officer, please contact me at [email protected]

I can do the loan for you (our team is licensed in 8 states) – OR – I can refer you to an amazing loan officer in the state where you’re searching. ON WITH THE SHOW!!!

New Full Episodes are released every THURSDAY at 10:00am and clips are released frequently throughout the week. SO MAKE SURE YOU SUBSCRIBE!!!
