What is your role within Cellular Sales? Sell phones and teach people how to sell phones.

Please tell me about your most rewarding or satisfying experience –your proudest moment – since you joined the company. My proudest moment actually happened very recently. I traveled outside of the Kansas City market to Coastal Texas for the Houston Rodeo. The National Events Coordinator, Mitchell Duncan, challenged me to break the 86 phone record in ten days, which was the most phones ever sold by one rep at the Houston Rodeo event. I sold 100; it was an amazing feeling.
What makes Cellular Sales such a special company? Flexibility/Opportunity.
What do you like best about working for Cellular Sales? I like working 3-4 days a week and spending the rest of the time relaxing and enjoying life.
Are there any obstacles you face at work? INVENTORY… and the only other obstacle I face at work is not challenging myself to the fullest. There are a lot of opportunities that I do not feel I take advantage of, and recognizing those is the hardest part.
Before working here, what was the most unusual or interesting job you’ve ever had? Selling cars – I love sales. This [job] reminds me a lot of selling cars, and I loved selling cars. However, phones are definitely easier to get out the door.
What are your hobbies? Golf; I play on an indoor soccer team; I work out quite a bit; and I love down time.
If you were stuck on a desert island, what three things would you have to have with you? [I would have my] two best friends. I’m a huge social person, so I would need company. Also, I’m not creative, so maybe they would come up with an idea.
If a phone was named after you, what would it be called? The Balla Calla Reinvention
And finally…DROID or iPhone? I have a Droid, [and it's] just because I’m waiting for the iPhone 7.
