What is the best advice you would give someone who is new to the sales industry?
It takes a while to get established… don’t give up! Also, it will take a while to learn the industry – there are a lot of details and product solutions. Give yourself time, absorb as much information as you can and make sure you’re a part of the process. You’ll gain invaluable insight and skills that can’t be learned by studying – you need to learn by doing and making mistakes. Rely on your team to help you grow and learn more every day.
In your opinion, what 3 skills are most important to succeed as a sales rep in this industry?
Tenacity, curiosity and the desire to learn.
Who would you most like to swap places with for a day?
No one! I love my life and wouldn’t change a thing. It can be stressful and overwhelming at times, but everything works out just exactly the way it’s supposed to.
Stay tuned for next month’s featured employee!
