How Did You Bloom This Week Link Up: Sales Woman Edition

Hi friends! Happy Thursday and thanks for linking up! Today I'm sharing how I bloomed this week with my new job! For those that saw my post two weeks ago, I shared how I got a job after lots and lots of searching! To view that post, click here.

This week I want to talk about stepping out of my comfort zone and how I've blossomed from it. For those that know me very well I am a sensitive person. That can be a good thing and a bad thing. With my job I have to be quick on my feet, not hurt by words, and good about keeping a positive attitude. All these things I'm fairly good at, but could always be better, naturally.



My job is with a marketing company called J & B Prime Solutions. I'm a face-to-face sales woman inside Sam's Club and Walmart trying to save customers money with DirectTV. The job description sounded hard at first. I did not know if I would be cut out to convince people why they should switch to DirectTV BUT it's turned out to be so good for me. I've come to the conclusion that no matter what people say to me, their words don't define me, how people respond to me doesn't change who I am and their words aren't directed at me, but the company. With my 2 weeks of work those are the things I've noticed and I'm so glad. Being a minor in business I think it's important to be well rounded in business matters and I've learned so much from this experience. Not to mention, I've made 15 sales in 7 work days which I'm happy with for just starting out. I've learned a lot about myself and that I can't underestimate my abilities. I need to give everything a shot no matter how nervous I am and 9 times out of 10 I'll be successful as long as I keep a good attitude and stay positive.

No matter what your work circumstance is try to look at all the things you are learning from the experience. Being in the work place and going through ups and downs makes you so much more well rounded for other jobs and the situations you'll face in the future. I promise your job isn't for nothing, even if it feels like that. Keep pressing on, it will be worth it. :) We're in this together, friend!

    Abi! That's awesome and such a good lesson. Working in sales for the past 10 months has been such a great growing experience for me. Staying positive and facing my fears is still a daily struggle but I'll think of you as I work on my deals here :).
