As a social entrepreneur, Aline Bender unites the passion of a social mission with the actions of business-like discipline and innovation. Part of her mission is to take her keys to success and pass them down for other women to do the same. 

Aline is the co-founder and CEO of Kama'aina Mortgage Group Inc., author of The 60 Second Sale, and a wonderful mother. 

Aline is truly a master at scaling. She brought her business to closing over $175M with a team of 16, and she’s here today to share her story, how she did it, personal exercises we can all put into practice, and three steps to scale without burning out!

If you’re looking to scale your business without you having to be in the equation, this episode is for you. Tune in to the episode to learn from Aline’s world-class approach. 



• “I didn't know much about the mortgage industry, I just knew that once you understand systems and processes and building people, you could apply that to any kind of business.” (8:45 - 8:57)

• “Number one is, I say, let people build the business, you're not going to build it… I'm there to make sure they have all the tools, the support, and the technology to build it.” (13:32 - 14:02)

• “If you don't have to work harder, don't work harder, just work smarter… Once you set it up, then let it run.” (17:38 - 17:47)

• “Circle the top three activities or tasks, whatever it is, or responsibility you want to label, that you truly, absolutely love doing… commit on focusing only on those three and let go of control everything else.” (22:11 - 23:23)

• “I don't want to be the smartest one in the room. I want to be the one who listens and pays attention to who knows the answer, and give them the floor and give them the leadership.” (27:10 - 27:17)

• “I knew that if I was ever to leave this earth, and when I do, I want to make sure everything I've been through, the journey of getting out of poverty, that it gets passed on to someone, and they could do the same thing.” (36:32 - 36:35)
