“Crazy Lucky Girl: Do YOU Have the Keys to Success?” by Susan Meitner
Prior to joining Centennial, Ms. Meitner met a gentleman who introduced her to a position inside a national mortgage company, where she worked her way up from the bottom. She progressed in such positions as vice president, and eventually senior vice president, all while working as a loan originator. She excels in her field due to a unique blend of her prior industry experiences and educational background, which includes a Bachelor of Art in speech communications from George Mason University. She was recently inducted into Worldwide Branding and also maintains affiliation with the Mortgage Bankers Association. Throughout the course of her notable career, she has won a variety of awards, including the Best of Horsham award in 2009 and 2013. Ms. Meitner has been featured in “Philadelphia Magazine” as a Five-Star Professional for four consecutive years. Inc. 5000 ranked Susan #3 in their Top Women in Fastest Growing Privately Owned Companies in 2014. In the same publication, her company was ranked #64 out of 500. She is currently licensed in eight states: PA, NJ, DE, MD, VA, NC, FL and CA. Looking toward the future, Ms. Meitner would like to grow along with Centennial Lending Group.
Ms. Meitner’s book, “Crazy Lucky Girl: Do YOU Have the Keys to Success?” was released on September 19, 2014 through the website http://www.crazyluckygirl.com and on the Amazon, Kindle, Barnes and Noble, and the iTunes stores. The book was written as a “how-to guide for entrepreneurs,” and features Ms. Meitner’s years of wisdom condensed into one easy-to-read source. According to one of the book’s reviews, “Severe economic shock helps create a dramatic backdrop for this book. The author’s 22-year career is harshly disrupted by the housing and financial meltdown of 2008-09. Indeed, the depths of that economic turmoil coincide with the founding of Meitner’s company, a business based on lessons learned and risky, corner-cutting practices rejected. In building the new firm, Meitner gathered a core sales team and then lost most of it on the eve of start-up. In selecting her top-level manager, she found the nerve to revisit a burned bridge, offer apologies and secure a second-in-command whose traits and experience fit Centennial’s needs perfectly.”
