After college, no prior job or experience. Even had a degree that had nothing to do with sales

After college: degree in theology. Worked as a youth ministry for a few years, then was an EMT for a couple...then started sales...now, 10 years in.

One of the best decisions of my life.Β

After college and after a few stints in very different jobs. Took me 5 years after college to land in sales but I'm super happy I did.
