YOUR MESSAGE RECEIVED WITH MATT OPRAMOLLA...
Listen for techniques on risk taking, Hiring process (from a Recruiter POV,) succinct communication with kindness.. When you listen to my interview with Matt Opramolla, you’ll learn quickly that Matt is a guy who is able to communicate exactly what he wants and also able to take big risks. As a Recruiter, Matt channels his own experience in the interview process (which can be incredibly nerve-wracking and frustrating) and helps others to feel valued (as well as better aligned professionally.) When Matt says (as a Recruiter), he is on LinkedIn daily, if you are in career mode, you should be too! Matt is currently residing in Austin, Texas. Matt enjoys playing basketball and guitar, going to concerts, getting tattooed, spending time with his family (two dogs, two cats, one wife), reading historical non-fiction, and listening to podcasts about The Sopranos. If you’re a dreamer, a visionary (including geographical shifts, professional risks, chasing goals, making big changes) and want to do this in a way that also encourages you use your voice in order to follow your heart- listen to Matt Opramolla. Here’s to taking that leap and remaining kind in the process. Enjoy!

YOUR MESSAGE RECEIVED INTERVIEW SERIES WITH SPECIAL GUESTS ALL-STARS NETWORK CHAD NACHSIN + CHADD LEVINE
NEW Podcast BIO CHAD + CHADD ALL-STARS NETWORK Chad Nachsin (aka Single D) and Chadd Levine (aka Double DD) are well known in the Philadelphia Region as the Mortgage All-Stars. While they started, and shine in the Mortgage industries, Mortgage All-Stars has also morphed into a distinct brand, with their individual personalities shining through. You may already know them, or you soon will, as the architects of the All-Stars Network. Don’t mistake their incredibly fun personalities as a casual approach to their business. These two All-Stars are intense competitors who continually level-up their game. Vision, strategy, brand- focused marketing, finding the right identity, execution and follow through…are all integral parts of their DNA. To quote Double DD, “…when you find it (the brand, identity… ) you can become it." All- Stars Network evolves into far more than Mortgages and Real Estate, although Real Estate drives them both.  Single D and Double DD now seek out All-Stars in every profession. Personally, while I am so grateful for the friendships- I also am truly grateful for the simple fact that they draw the All-Star out of me, and also help those lucky enough to be around them- to level up their professional games as well. Because my purpose is to help others find their true and authentic voice, Chadd and Chad embody authenticity. There’s no one like them, and they make an incredible team. All of this is done with a ton of passion, laughs, and kindness. I am truly grateful to be friends with them and am thrilled that I get to share these two legends with you. Finding (and listening to) their true authentic voices is a true privilege. These All-Stars currently host multiple weekly Social Media Shows. Here’s where to find Chad Nachsin + Chadd Levine All Stars Network. Fridays at 1:30 PM Facebook Neighborhood Spotlights (with Mark Gatta) Wed @ 1:30 PM.
