Today while driving in Ft. Collins, Colorado, USA I saw the sign for Valpak of N. Colorado & S. Wyoming in an office center, so I stopped in. WOW did my memories flow of my job as a sales representative at Valpak of Boise Idaho! Great memories of winning an award for being a top sales rep of small markets, going to Coupon University in Florida, and my gratefulness of learning to handle rejection. A career in sales is one of the greatest opportunities to learn to deal with rejection. Sales is certainly one of the longest careers so far in my life. I sold, Avon, Tupperware, John Deer Parts, Melaleuca, Mary Kay, and of course Valpak. I am so grateful for the lessons in handling rejection each of these jobs has given me. It certainly makes me a better coach.
