I grew up on a small island off the southwest Florida coast. One lane each way and a bridge to the mainland at each end. Naturally, boating has played a significant role in my life, even since the early days. It was not my first car that I had been saving up for, but rather my first boat.
Fast forwarding a few dozen years... At the end of 2017, I decided to leave my suit-and-tie corporate career for an opportunity to join the POP Yachts Sales Team as a Sales Representative and start selling something that I was passionate about, for the first time in my life.
Early into my career change, I knew I had made the right choice. Work was no longer a chore but rather something I truly enjoyed. After being here for one year and seven days (December 12th, 2018), my confidence and happiness with that decision have grown.
I've had the pleasure of wearing a few different hats since joining POP Yachts. It's from these opportunities that I was able to realize I'm not just passionate about the industry we work in, but also the company I work for.
Currently, as the Assistant Manager of Sales Training and Development, I work directly with all of our new Sales Representatives as soon as they start their training. While working under the expert tutelage of Nisha Barlow, I'm able to provide Support and Management to our Sales Representatives while still remembering what it was like for me to be in their shoes just last year.
...Welp, that's my story. If you're interested in stepping away from your boring 9-5 life like I was, I'd strongly recommend checking out http://www.sellboatsandrvs.com
