Oops…here it is in quotes below. It doesn’t mention anything about teaching including something about me teaching undergrad and grad level leadership, negotiation, and economics in the business school at University of Phoenix for nine years might make sense. Not sure if you want to include awards or title from UOP but if you think it’s appropriate, I was the Rookie of the Year for Southern CA my first year, faculty of the year two years later and for five years served as Lead Faculty Area Chair which included managing and mentoring 20 – 24 faculty members at any given time.
“Phil leverages a diverse and impressive background in financial services including real estate, lending and investments to create value for his clients. Phil joined the real estate industry after a successful career in business and private banking where he held multiple Vice President positions. Phil attributes his success to his unwavering drive, original and creative approach towards opportunities and commitment to serving his client's needs. It is this commitment and discretion which has earned him the trust of many of San Diego's most influential individuals. Aside from real estate, Phil is committed to philanthropy and has served in leadership capacities of seven local and national charities.
Phil holds a degree with a Finance concentration from Abilene Christian University and a Bachelor's Degree in Aviation Management from Southern Illinois at Carbondale. He has a Commercial Pilot's license and is an avid outdoorsmen and photographer. As a third generation San Diego Native and he enjoys San Diego's marvelous amenities with his wife and three sons.”

Did you know that 75% of real estate agents quit within their first year and within just 5 years, 87% of agents will be out of the business? That means only 13 agents out of 100 will still be in the business 6 years from the day they start! Why do you suppose that is? What can you do to stack the odds in your favor of being a success and creating the kind of life you dream of?
