Greetings from the great state of Alabama Roll Tide Roll!
I tend to operate under the totem of the Bear, and as anyone with half a brain can tell you: Don’t poke the Bear. Well this Bear has come out of hibernation (my previously announced sabbatical) for this one-time blog post on a subject I felt compelled to share with all of you as we consider the annual gathering for the North American Repossessor Summit of 2014 in Dallas TX.
At the 2013 NARS convention I ran into a very old friend, Paul Kulas, with whom I had not spoken or seen in years. What started as a chance encounter developed into a 4-hour conversation in the lobby of the hotel, allowing our old friendship to click once again as though we had been speaking to each other every day. He was a scheduled presenter for NARS 2013, and he delivered one of the most engaging talks of the event. I truly hope they bring him back and give him more time to talk!

Houston will bring his expertise to NFA to help the company grow and to develop new lender leads. (more…)
