What is your day-to-day in your role?
Finding new sales leads for me and my team, meeting and exceeding sales quotas, educating and planning presentations, researching and communicating a consumers needs and working with other departments to drive sales efforts.
What is your favourite part of your role?
I’ll be the first to admin that I dont always appreciate the unexpected, but over the years, I’ve learned to embrace and expect it. When the unexpected becomes the expected, it is amazing how that can change a person’s outlook on life. I’ve learned to roll with things and understand what I can impact and what I cannot.
I am thankful that sales is not for the timid or the weak. The issues I’ve had to deal with over the years, and what I’ve learned from each one has without a doubt made me a better person. I have no doubt that my project management and process development skills are much better today than they were years ago. The pressure of sales has helped me refine those skills.
