Ronnie Martin for Murfreesboro City Council

On tonight’s podcast with my Level Up Nation, I had the pleasure of interviewing Mr. Ronnie Martin, who in my opinion, is one of the BEST Commercial Lenders.

Ronnie and I go way back. We grew very close during the recession in 2008. He allowed me to call him many many times and would give me the steps that I needed to follow. The times he spent with me on Saturday mornings were so valuable.

I was always chasing money, but it never dawned on me that I needed to get great at what I do until Ronnie Martin said “If you just focus on being great, on being really good at what you do; all the things you are chasing will find you. 

His parents believed that you could do anything you wanted to do, but you had to work hard. Ronnie was the first in his family to graduate high and then college. Because of his parents’ belief, he went to work on himself in order to find success.

Ronnie Martin is a big believer that transferring the commitment to greatness, that transferring what you do, transfers in every field of employment. “Focus on doing really well. If you aren’t working on being the best version of who you are, than what value can you create? Be who you are and be great at it everyday.”

If you are wanting to Level Up, if you are wanting to take it to the next level, Ronnie Martin says to “surround yourself with those who are greater than you, surround yourself with those who are smarter than you, who have different talents, and different skill sets that you do not have. They will challenge you. If you can find people in your circle that can be honest with you, that have your best interest in mind, that care about you and invest in you, and most importantly will find the time to have the real conversations is a rare thing. People don’t want to isolate you. People are FEARFUL of what you make think of them if you are truly honest. One must commit to life long learning and pushing to be great every single day. Focus on the things you do well and be proud of the things you do well. Surround yourself with those who are honest with you, push you, and want to help you do well.”

Ronnie Martin has the patience, the skill (he is a great listener), and is exceptional at acknowledging your belief and understanding why you are asking him. He is so good at defining his position.

“It’s humility for me, I don’t have all the answers. When you come to me, I immediately assume you are right. I keep listening and reserve judgment until you are finished and have formed a view of what you are saying. My responsibility in that is to come back and say I heard what you said, I want to make sure I heard what you said, here is my view on that, and I want YOU to help me on that. It really is a collaborative effort. I never assume I know everything.” Ronnie Martin

Ronnie never assumes he knows everything. “For me to serve you, to serve the community, I have to be willing to listen. I measure my success by your success. That is what lifts me up. If we are successful as a community, as a city, I am going to take great pride in that. But its not going to be because of I did something but because I listened, gathered as much information that I thoughtfully can.”

Mr. Martin has a unique belief in goal setting. To be the absolute great he can be today and everyday, Ronnie has to see the opportunity, do the absolute best he can to engage in that opportunity, and focuses on being good with people and building relationships.

“The way you treat people says a lot about who you are. People remember that. Don’t take kindness for granted. You value those who look out for you. Character sticks out above all things.” Ronnie Martin
