I spent a great deal of time designing custom built websites that helped to automate the prequalification process for SBA loans. I remember one bank President wanted to meet with me to discuss doing the same for more than one broker, but, Janie was sick at the time - the timing wasn't right for me.
After Janie died, the broker I worked with offered me a whole $300 per client who prequalified using my sites. I asked for a point of the deal and he refused. I told the broker that I wanted to speak with the bank president that asked to meet with me before. He refused that introduction and I was nicer than to go over his head. He told me I would be his competition.
I should not have to keep my resume, portfolio, accomplishments and/or mutual contacts secret just because I might be somebodies competition.
