You’re passionate about connecting with people. Living through a pandemic has been tough – you’ve been fantasizing about of getting back out there. Zoom is ok and all, but for you – nothing beats the thrill of a cup of coffee and good conversation face-to-face.
People call you when they want real help with a problem. You’ve got a good track record as a trusted advisor and they know you’ll give it to them straight or point them in a new direction. You enjoy connecting people to solutions they may not even know exist. It gets you out of bed in the morning. You lead with questions and your consultative approach to selling is the envy of your peers.
You don’t like to be bored. That old saying, “a rolling stone gathers no moss”…yeah, that resonates. You operate best when there’s a lot going on and a lot of opportunity to go after. You love the idea of working with a team that battles industry goliaths every day. Winter is coming – and you were born ready.
