Brian Covey is the VP of Production at Loan Depot. He has mastered the art of a growth mindset, the art of winning, and the art of staying fit. He believes in integration and health over all things. He is an executive at Loan Depot, a proud father, an influencer, a top rated podcaster and, just simply, a fabulous soccer dad. He throws the suit down and coaches his daughters’ league with joy several times a week. It's his mission with his new book, "Conversations with Covey", to highlight some of the most incredible stories he's gotten to share on his podcast, the Brian Covey Show.

In this episode, Brian gets into how you may have the soft skills or sales skills, but with coaching, you can have a whole other world that will lift you beyond. He also talks about why you need to take action today to separate yourself from mediocrity, and explains why you should give thoughtful feedback on social media to the people you want to surround yourself and work with.

Tweetable Quotes:

“​​I realized then that you always leveled up to the level of people you played around with.” - Brian Covey

“ You can learn, you can grow, you can be around other people. There are other men and women who are on the same journey as you. And the reality is, some of them have things figured out in your life that you need to figure out, and for me to accelerate that is what I want to do.” - Brian Covey

‘I think that by not sharing our gifts and our talents and our stories and giving that back to the world, we're depriving the world and ourselves of making an impact.” - Brain Covey
