My sales career started nearly twenty years ago. The first job I ever had was selling games at a theme park known as Carowinds in Charlotte, NC. I stood on a microphone and sold the opportunity for park guests to win a prize at my game. I learned so much from that summer, everything from reading people’s attention, finding connections with strangers quickly (one after another), building rapport and relationships through interaction, and most importantly how powerful leveraging positivity was.
Little did I know during that summer, that what I did each day would lay the foundation for a skill set that I use today and will use for the rest of my life. More importantly, I found out a ton about myself – something about speaking on the microphone in front of strangers and building quick relationships/rapport came very natural to me.
Since then, I’ve worked in sales in various industries – real estate, digital marketing/advertising, tourism, and I even sold cars one summer (I had a summer internship while in college at car dealership – they threw me on the sales floor, interesting experience).
Today I work in the technology field, I work for a phenomenal growth company called Restaurant Technologies Inc. We automate some of the most dangerous and labor intensive jobs in commercial kitchens. I currently am a National Sales Executive working with some of the largest companies in the world. We’re doing GREAT things for the industry and our customers. When you work for such a great company with a strong service & product, your potential can be uncapped.
No sales pitch here – my goal for this site is to share as much content as possible so we can all become better individuals for our companies as well as our customers & clients!
