Defining Moments

How I responded to discouragement


    Messages from Peers:

    I was told I needed more training. I was told I would never make a lot of money in this field.

  • How I responded:

    I found a mentor who showed me by example how to find business, how to listen to the needs of the customer, and how to advocate for my customers position with the approvers of the financing.
