My wife is in the mortgage business now. Or her firm is anyway. She alerted me to the news of Accenture’s Zenta acquisition last night, then I got several emails this morning from colleagues asking me about the deal. The best was this one from one of my longtime mortgage banking mentors:
Saw this Accenture news, does this mean your wife will now be working for us? And do you really understand what this means?
To which I replied:
Come on Robert, when was the last time I understood what she does for ‘The Company’ ??
All my colleagues think she’s in the CIA because she travels a lot, and her explanations about what she does leave them scratching their heads. It’s all very covert.
As for her, when I asked about Accenture’s mortgage strategy this morning, she replied:
How’s our refi going?
Well played babe …
