As a sales professional, I am constantly talking to people; all different types of people in different scenarios. A lot of this talk is obviously geared toward what I am selling, but other times it’s a bunch of small talk. My week is full of lunches and events with people I don’t really know.
I am around people all the time. My job involves a ton of people, I’m constantly around my kids and their friends, and I live in Atlanta, where there’s so much traffic that you are ALWAYS with someone else on the road. I love it.
I have a milestone birthday this month and, I’ll admit, it’s a hard one to grasp. I’ve been glossing over this number for a while, but now that It’s upon me, I realize that I need to face the facts and (wo)man up. So I’m here to say, loud and proud, that soon I’ll turn 49.
