Happy Father's Day to all the dads in here!

My dad is not a salesman. He worked blue collar jobs his whole life, and took pride in them. He was up at 5 am every day to get ready for work, and almost never called in sick. He was laid off a couple of times throughout his roles but was willing to take whatever odd job was available to bring money in rather than sit around on unemployment. He had a great work ethic.ย 

The biggest lesson I've learned from himย  thus far is to never sell myself short. He always told me that. Go for a challenge, try what you want to try, and don't underestimate your potential. Moving into sales was a big leap for me. Of course I was nervous and doubted if I could do it. I'm so happy I tried though as I'm now in the best spot I've ever been, professionally.ย

My dad has done a little bit of everything so I'd say yes he was a salesman. You have to be able to sell yourself to be an entrepreneur
My dad is in construction. But deep down he would make a great salesman.ย

Happy Fathers Day!ย 

My dad was a construction worker in a Union. Doesnโ€™t really understand why I chose sales but so be it.ย 

Was gifted a Yeti cooler from the family. Canโ€™t wait to test it out on the beach.ย

Damn, I guess all of us got popsโ€™ in construction lol. Much like the others, dad taught me to dig deep and grind for your family and that nobody cares about your excuses. Heโ€™s a good dad.ย 

Wife got me a Grypmat today which is A W E S O M E. My days of losing shit in my engine because Iโ€™m balancing 1000 different things on the manifold are OVER!

My dad used to run his own gym so in essence he was a salesperson and taught me a ton of valuable skills early on
