At this point I was introduced to TAG. TAG is compiled of some of the most impressive individuals I ever seen working together. The camaraderie and sheer determination to be successful is contagious and spreads throughout the office. I have built some amazing relationships with the individuals at TAG, which I count on as I continue to progress through the company.

David Wang – I joined TAG shortly after I received my bachelor degree at Azusa Pacific University, and TAG has been my home for past 11 months. What I got the most out of TAG is comfort zone expansion and leadership skills. Before I started working with TAG, I had a hard time communicating with strangers. However, because of the training at TAG, I was able to develop a proven track record of something I fear the most – expanding my comfort zone by talking to business owners on a daily basis. Furthermore, through TAG, I had the chance to be immersed in the teachings by leadership giants such as John C. Maxwell and Stephen Covey daily. The raw business experience TAG provides has equipped me with skill sets such as time and priority management, communication skills, sales, entrepreneurial spirit, and tenacity. I have no doubt in my mind that I can take these transferable skills to the next chapter of my life.

I also learned the habit of continuous personal development through reading books and asking quality questions.

The principles he teaches transfer over to ANY viable business and the atmosphere at TAG is extremely conducive to learning and applying these principles.

Isiah Campbell (Graduate from Morehouse College in Atlanta, GA) – Working at Team TAG is not for the faint at heart; the job is not for everyone. My experience was rewarding because the skills that I developed have enriched my life and given me more confidence in my abilities. For example, I became a more competent communicator as a result of the sales training. Moreover, I learned that the ways to overcome obstacles are by setting goals and thinking bigger than the obstacles. I had many talents and skills before I worked for TAG, however, I was able to enhance my abilities and I gained new ones, after becoming a part of the agency. A few years after leaving the agency, I opened two of my own mortgage offices in Sacramento, CA. My life was positively impacted by the folks from Team TAG. I would recommend this company for people who are really talented and determined to succeed.
