Meet the LeTip Advisory Board

The LeTip Advisory Board is made up of passionate LeTip members from different chapters and backgrounds. As members of the board, they review challenges pertaining to LeTip’s procedures and bylaws. To these board members, LeTip is more than just a business networking group, it’s their business family.

Steve Mass

Q

About Steve

My name is Steve Mass and I have been in the financial service business for 15+ years.  I am a full-service mortgage banker specializing in refinances, purchases and assisting first time home buyers. I will never forget the feeling the day I bought my first home. My wife and I looked forward to starting a family and making memories we would create with our future children. We have made that dream a reality! I am married to an amazing woman, and we have two incredible sons who have enhanced our lives in ways I never could have imagined. It may be a bit selfish on my part, but I relive that moment every time I assist people in achieving their goal of home ownership.

I am a sports guy through and through and I will chat about football and baseball any day of the week. I had a near death experience several years ago, which taught me to live a life of passion, and that is exactly what I do. Every day I wake up, is a great day!

Why I decided to join the Advisory Board

I joined the advisory board as I bleed LeTip Blue and whatever I can do to help improve and support the members of this great organization, I am all in!!!

Choosing to invest time in LeTip has been the best thing I have ever done.  If it were not for LeTip I do not know where I would be.  I am in my profession currently because of LeTip and I enjoy every moment!!!!

Peter Zales

Q

About Peter

As the PRINTER of our group (Cherry Hill, NJ) I bring over 40 yrs experience in print production, design, marketing, and creative services. As I often say in my weekly commercial, “What we do – is make what YOU do – look GOOD!

And we do it with the THREE P’s – Printing, Promotional Products and Presentations (for trade shows).” While technology continues to change rapidly, my favorite parts of the industry remain the creative process and relationship building.

I joined LeTip in April 2016 and after a successful first year, I was asked to be Membership Chair (a position, I loved immensely!). A year later, I was asked to serve as President and held that position for four years (including 17 months of virtual meetings during COVID). I was thrilled and humbled to be named the 2021 LeTip International President of the Year (in April 2022).

For me, LeTip is simply about forming relationships and helping others grow their business – and having great fun while doing it! I still rarely miss meetings because I don’t want to miss something that week – a new guest, a great commercial, a new member getting a great tip – or just being with nearly 60 business folk that are my crazy and loyal and fun family! I have grown immensely in LeTip, as a professional, a leader and above all – a friend – and I am thankful for it all!

Why I decided to join the Advisory Board

In 2020, I was asked to join the original Advisory Board. It was a bold plan to encourage and incorporate opinion and feedback from select LeTip members from around the country. I was honored to be asked and grateful to be part of the team that reviewed issues related to the LeTip bylaws and procedures., especially when we were all be being challenged by COVID.

After 27 years in LeTip, I have seen just about everything, and I want to bring that experience to help guide the future of LeTip. I joined LeTip in 1997 and immediately realized the value of networking. LeTip has transformed my career and I want to make sure that the amazing experience I have had in LeTip is available to as many people as possible across the country.

My Father built his customer base cold calling and I knew I did not want to do that. So, I started networking with other businesspeople. Then Steve Lusen invited me to LeTip and my eyes were opened to a system to help me build those relationships. The more I invest in the group the more I get out of the group.  LeTip has been the #1 BEST business decision I have ever made. LeTip is my family!

Bruce Howard

Q

About Rick

Born in Brooklyn now lives in Suffolk County on Long Island. Bruce is a New Yorker through and through. A business owner for more 30 years Bruce’s first business was a Real Estate Appraisal company which provided compliance audits and expert testimony in addition to appraisals for over 30 banks and lenders including JP Morgan Chase, HSBC, Citicorp and others. The business grew to provide Review and Audit services to the likes of Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae, FEMA as well as several regional government agencies. Over the 20+ years of operations Howard Associates grew to serve 15 counties in New York State and Fairfield County Connecticut. The experience gained during the growth and operations of his first company led Bruce to mortgage and tax lien investing.

In 2012 Bruce entered the solar industry through a combination of environmental advocacy and opportunities present in the nascent residential solar markets. After gaining experience in sales and technical design with several solar and engineering firms Bruce established Long Island Solar Sales Inc in December 2019. It was only three months later that CoVid and the lockdowns that accompanied the pandemic rendered the entire sales model obsolete. Since 2020 Bruce has offered traditional solar panel installations as well as solar education modules to allied professions and community and environmental organizations.

When he’s not busy turning “daylight into dollars”, He volunteers his time at various environmental advocacy organizations. Bruce and his wife Dawn enjoy, traveling and wandering as well as family vacations with their adult children in National Park around the county. You may also find Bruce playing his guitar on the back deck, much to the chagrin of his neighbors.

I decided to join the advisory board because it was an opportunity to give back to a company and community that have been supportive of my business and my family.

“Dollars in Your Pocket!” is our motto and it has been true for me every year since I joined in 2014. What I love that I never expected is a number of resources for my business, my clients, and my family that I never expected. I came for the money – I stay because of the depth of professional relationship and resource.
