“Honey, we don’t hire little girls.” were his words. What it did to FPG President Mary Marshall? It fueled her dedication. Mary recently had the pleasure to be on Anya Chrisanthon’s “New Construction Marketing” podcast talking about the mindset it takes to become one of the Top 1% Sales Professionals.


This time of the year is one of my favorites. I recently hosted our FPG quarterly dinner, and the night was full of Christmas spirit, gratitude, and love. We shared a delicious meal, laughed about 2018’s quirky moments, and played an intense game of white elephant gifting. I stood back for a moment and watched my team laugh together while the Christmas lights illuminated the room, and I was filled with so much gratitude and joy.
