It all began when I was twelve years old and I answered an ad in the newspaper to make extra money selling flowers over the Christmas Holiday. My parents eventually supported my determination to take the job and work both Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. What I learned, those two days, helped shape my future (plus I purchased my first surfboard), I was hooked on all aspects of making the "? SALE"?. I have held a variety of positions in my sales career; all with the same underlying emphasis to increase business. As a result, it does not matter whether I am working with a small company or a global leader, I have a unique ability to drive sales. However, actual experience has taught me that my professional value is in the following: --I have been facing challenges head on with proven results. --I strive to better my professional and consultative approach to sales. --I run towards fires. --I don't care who gets credit, as long as the team wins. --Execution is what matters, and I do execution.
