    I’ve been thinking about career trajectories a lot recently, and memories of my college jobs re-surfaced.

    I’m enjoying the sales training session, and an idea struck me while we took a break. There’s a great book on relationships called “The Five Love Languages”, which talks about how people give and receive love. These days, business often feels like a marriage, and I think some of the tips in the relationship guide [...]

    Hello from Atlanta, GA! I’ll be here the next few days for a presentation and training session with our sales team, and I’m excited to kick off the week with the first presentation about our new Customer Relationship Management system.
