Have you WHAT?

Magnifying glassWhat a hoot!

Kimberly Meyer with my office was just working with one of the lenders from a continuing client of ours. Cashmere Valley Bank has been sending lenders to our open-enrollment Tax Return Analysis training for years.

In January, we did an on-site for them to improve consistency and bring newer lenders up to speed.

Now when they have a business loan, instead of asking ‘have you spread that’ or ‘have you done the cashflow analysis yet’ they say:

“Have you LGK’d that?”

For those of you who have not had enough coffee yet today, LGK stands for Linda Gabbert Keith. Cool, huh?
