New Kid on the Block

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. =)

That is so awesome that you are so excited and passionate about it. That will carry you a long way! Break a leg! It's okay...you sell Aflac!

Enthusiasm is so important!

One Q, tho: what is Aflac? I've heard the radio ads, but don't know what it is... maybe I never paid enough attention... ?

ROFL!!!!! You're right! I would be covered. hee hee hee Too funny.

Rebecca...Maybe I'll write a blog post about it soon. It's a great company and I've been a policy holder for 8 years. It's supplemental insurance but it pays you directly in cash. We've had to use it twice. =)

Meg, congratulations and I wish you great success! It's exciting to sell something you believe in, so you will be the perfect representative for them! Good luck sweetie!
