How do you feel about being selected to be Employee of the Month? I feel honored because after being with the company for over 10 years, it feels exceptional to get the recognition. Also, Burt Bucar gave me this honor and we all know he’s a big deal.
What managers and co-workers have helped you become a stronger BC? There have been many successful people that have encouraged and supported me along the way; Mark Stuth, Dhaval Oza, Michael Chung, Shawn Law, Liza Vitello, Clarissa Hernandez and Heli Modi to name a few. But most importantly, I thank my Sales Rep, Mike Santa. I owe all of them so much appreciation.
What is your secret to success with your rep match-up? Mike Santa and I have an amazing relationship. Trust and communication play a major role in our success. We have spent time with each other’s family and have become really good friends. We genuinely care about each other’s well being. We set goals together and stop at nothing to reach them as a team.
What goals have you already accomplished for this year? I have accomplished a few goals that I have set this year. Getting back together with Mike Santa as a BC/REP match-up after he came in house was a major goal we both reached together. My cash collect has improved dramatically since we started working together. I also have had many weeks as high roller.
What made you decide to start here at ISI? Wow! Well that was when I was 20 years old. I came across an ad in the paper and decided to give it a shot. I can honestly say that it was one of the best decisions I have made for myself and my family. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank John and Tyler Burgess for everything that they have done for all of us here at SMS. The both of you have gone above and beyond for your employees. I personally am very appreciative.
What is your favorite closing line? Keep in mind sir we called you, you did not call us. We are not implying or suggesting that you have a need for our services at this time. We just wanted an opportunity to introduce ourselves and hopefully leave you with a good enough impression in hopes that if there is a need, you will contact us in the future.
What did you do in your previous career? I worked at a daycare facility for three years prior to answering the ad for SMS.
What would we be surprised to know about your personally? I love to gamble on anything and everything…Tyler knows that very well. I never win, but at least I don’t give up!
