Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… I opened up NoteExpo 2020 last week with a NOTE Talk (think TED Talk at a note conference) that I called, Pivot: The Word of the Year for Surviving 2020. Around this time of year, we hear lots of “of the year” awards. There’s song of the year,... Read More

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… If you are like me, you are tired of hearing (and using) the phrase “uncertain times.” 2020 has been anything but certain. It has caused us to stay focused on what drives revenue and adapt, as well as adopt new strategies. Since 2014, we have hosted the note... Read More

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… After much thought, deliberation, and research we have decided that NoteExpo 2020 will now be a fully live virtual event on November 6-7.

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… For obvious reasons this graduation “season” is unlike any other that I have ever seen.

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… If there’s one thing that we have all learned over the past six weeks or so, it is that “virtual is the new reality”. Our team meetings have been replaced by Zoom or Go-to-meetings. At NoteSchool, we have shifted and now do both our 1-day Gold in Notes... Read More

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… Throughout the month, I jot down thoughts and ideas about what topic I want to talk about in this column each month. I usually come up with a topic that I recently read about or that is in the news. This month has been challenging. For most of... Read More

Thoughts from the Desk of Bob Repass… Over the last several years, I have been working alongside the other founders and members of the Seller Finance Coalition with the goal of achieving regulatory relief for our industry.
