Tell me a little about your background?
I went to college and chose a major that I felt would best suit a career in sales. I have been a competitor since I started playing sports at a young age, and I think that sales is the best way for talented and motivated people to use their competitive nature to make a good living. I went to work at a marketing company right out of college. I sat in a cubicle making about 300 cold calls a day and I knew that was not for me. I began researching different types of sales and came across MSC. In my time at MSC I grew a true passion for the industry and the fact that it gives me the opportunity to make a good living while using my knowledge and expertise to help people.
