I was never meant to work in sales, let alone teach it. My dream was to be a Hollywood actor and walk the red carpet, but sales seemed in my blood and destiny.
How it all started was when I took a random job as a receptionist at this warehouse that sold bathroom products at pre-construction prices to construction companies. This was all so I could fund my acting career.
In this job, my main role was to answer the phone, but no one called. So, I took matters into my own hands, got the yellow pages and started making cold calls. Pretty soon I was out on the road, meeting with builders and heads of construction companies, trying to sell these bathroom products in bulk. A few weeks later I made my first sale for 300 k.
I remember how great I felt when my boss told me how I saved the business and promoted me to sales manager. It was since then that I have realised how important sales is to any business, and my love for it grew.
Since, I have worked in a variety of sales roles, from recruitment, employment services, real estate, training services, to selling software. And now run my own sales training company, which include lots of selling.
I truly have a love for teaching sales and helping companies thrive. I am determined to make everyone fall in love with selling and succeed in it. I want people to understand that without good salespeople, many jobs and even businesses would not survive. Salespeople are the soldiers on the frontline who put their sanity on the line daily and deserve so much more respect.
In the last 10 years, I have been fortunate to train and coach over 10 thousand sales and non-sales people across the globe in the art of sales, influence, mindset and personal development. People usually walk out of my workshops with a newfound love for selling.
