It's the big day...I start my brand new job. One where I will need to learn a whole new set of skills and not rely on my comfortable skills. Talk about going outside the box. I'm not quite sure what I was thinking when I made this decision but that's the beauty of God. He leads me to do things that I would never consider on my own...or that I would just not think about.
I'm going to be a sales person. Ew! I still can't fully comprehend it. But I'm thankful that the company I've joined is awesome and I can be proud to say that I sell Aflac!!!! =) It's my hope that the enthusiasm I have for the product comes through and makes me not so much a sales person but a business partner for people.
I remember a couple of years ago talking to one of my coworkers about our Aflac policy and she said I should sell it. I laughed them and never thought about it again. I just loved the product and we'd needed to use it (and used it again after that) so it didn't feel like 'selling' ... because I wasn't.
Does that make any sense whatsoever?
So as my first day begins I get to meet new coworkers, dress in business clothes (something I haven't done in at least 5 years), and learn new things. Scary...and exciting at the same time. =)
