“Whether you believe you can or you can’t, you are right.” – Henry Ford

Gina Monaco is a Mortgage Agent and Team Lead with TMG – The Mortgage Group, one of Canada’s largest national brokerages, with a reputation as leading-edge residential and commercial mortgage experts and widely considered a mortgage education resource.
Gina is based in the town of Dundas, Ontario. She has been a business owner, communications professional and is a Certified Jack Canfield success coach.
Her philosophy is that everyone, including the people you consider successful, has 525,600 minutes to invest in themselves every year. You don’t get to NOT create. You only get to create two ways; out of design (your creation) or out of default (your old way of thinking).
In this episode, Gina gives insights on how you can map out your personal life successfully as you would your business life. She talks about the key things in communication you should consider in sending out your message. She points out mistakes people commit where they think they have set themselves apart in their messaging, yet it turns out not to be the case. And she recommends how to do it best.

“You either let it go by and let it pass you buy. Or you start creating the way you want that life to be or what you want those days to look like. And that really started me thinking about life in general, and how I manage my days.” – Gina Monaco
“In business, you always start with a business plan. You put your business plan together; you put your marketing plan. You have goals; you have quarterly goals, you break them down into weekly goals, daily goals, what’s going to get you there. It’s a business model that you bring into your personal life and works just as well.” – Gina Monaco
“I think with communication, you have to be very, very clear, and you have to use clear, concise language in all your communications and have it all be consistent.” – Gina Monaco
“Now, you do the same thing, but you do it digitally. You have your website; you have your social media. That’s how you build your brand now, through your website and your social media. And people are still networking.” – Gina Monaco
“You just have to relate to the person that you’re dealing with. You have to be likable. Because if people like you, they’re gonna gravitate a little bit more to you than somebody else who’s less likable.” – Gina Monaco
