I'm just starting to get settled into my new job. 2 1/2 weeks of intense training and waiting for background checks to clear and now finishing up first full week out in the field. What a first week it was.
Although I've been with this company for about 9 years, sales is not my background. While certainly knowledgeable enough, assertive and competitive enough by nature there is still a huge learning curb ahead for me.
I've been driving to places all across South Florida, that I barely knew existed. I did get a GPS for my car, a most valuable tool of the trade for this kind of job. One less thing I have to worry about.
With the kind of schedule I working, I have had nearly no time for the artsy things I like to do, like paint, photograph, Photoshop or even to pick up my guitar. Hope that will change as I continue to settle in more.
Yesterday I was a little early for my 5:00 in Miramar and happened to spot a photo opp with mamma duck and co. above and couldn't resist. I know she's Muskogee (correction, Muscovy) ... still cute to me.
BTW ... I made my first sale yesterday, as a matter of fact I sold a kitchen to both of the people I met with and ... someone I met with the day before called back and asked me to come back on Friday. Hoping to finalize details on that kitchen too.
Whew ... this commission only thing was starting to get a little concerning, I was starting to imagine getting an IOU or UOME on payday. Realistically speaking, by the time they took my insurance and such out I could have ended up owing them for the hardest week of work in my life. LOL
Have a good rest of the week, I'll check in when I can.
