MY FIRST JOB AND WHAT IT TAUGHT ME
Ride operator in Memphis’ former Libertyland Amusement Park. It taught me the basics of connecting with customers to create a meaningful customer experience.
WHAT KEEPS ME COMING BACK TO MY JOB EVERY DAY
The desire to make a positive difference and enable others to achieve their dreams
A SKILL I NEVER EXPECTED TO USE IN THIS FIELD
I never expected to use sales skills. Decisions are often made after those impacted are convinced of their attributes. Developing a sales technique promotes success in this field.
ONE PRACTICE I USE TO MAINTAIN MY MENTAL HEALTH
Constant prayer for wisdom, discernment and courage to do the right thing and demonstrate empathy
BEST ADVICE I EVER RECEIVED
My late mother frequently told me to dream big, create a plan and deliver what is promised.
