Hard to read without punctuation. That would be adeal breaker for me in hiring a salesperson


Paragraphs would have been nice too.


I spoke this entire topic through my Bluetooth in my truck driving home after being outta town. It does not enter punctuation.


Update your phone, mine puts in punctuation, say “period”, “comma”.

Wow, this is your 3rd account and you can still only just copy and paste the same post in topics that are totally irrelevant in what you are offering… If you had any idea what type of posts you are replying to you would realize this is not the type of forum where you will likely have success with what you are offering. Perhaps next time I see that exact same post in a discussion it doesn’t belong maybe I will share your email on some adult personal ads, and maybe you can find someone looking for your services there. :wink:


Sounds to me like your current company is happy being small, if you want to grow it appears you need to consider the other company. Being a sales manager means being a resource and guidance for other sales people. It takes more than just being a “people person”, it means having knowledge of the roofing business and being able to teach and mentor others to be successful in the business.


Sorry man, I gave up after about 5 lines.
