Master Class #5 Speaker Spotlight: Meredith Sommers
Master Class #5 is tomorrow! We are honored to introduce our speaker, Meredith.
Q: Why is mentorship important to you?
M: One of my favorite quotes is “If you are the smartest person in the room, you are in the wrong room.” Mentorship is about bringing others together to help them be smarter and more successful by sharing experiences and lessons learned. In order to grow, you have to be with people who have done things you have not done yet and help them see how to get there. I would not be where I am today without mentors in my life.
Q: How you got into sales / what drew you to sales?
M: I stumbled upon sales when I was 23 years old when living in Los Angeles, CA and discovered there was a market for a business I never imagined starting in the celebrity industry. One of my first “sales calls” was with Will Smith’s wife, Jada Pinket Smith. I remember thinking “I have no idea how to sell” then another voice said “Just be yourself”. I am attracted to sales because it’s about being authentic and empathetic and truly listening to others and then helping them find a solution that meets their exact needs.
