Oliver started in sales without much confidence.
But it was the only job he could find during those tough economic times.
He struggled to learn the ropes during that first year but kept on believing he’d get it. One day, they got a new boss, and that’s when things began to change. His new boss wasn’t so focused on targets and dedicated his time to motivate his team. He made Oliver believe he could achieve anything he could set his mind on. In fact, that first month, they had no targets. Their boss encouraged them to try their best without any pressure, and the whole group flourished. That was the beginning of Oliver’s stellar career as a salesperson. His new boss became a mentor and always pushed him to be the best. Last spring, Oliver landed a meeting with a huge client. The client had refused to speak with other salespeople, but Oliver managed to convince him. Oliver flew to Santa Barbara for the meeting and booked into a lovely hotel. He wanted to be as relaxed as possible, so he slept early the night before. The meeting turned out even better, and Oliver landed a new deal. His boss told him to stay in Santa Barbara for the week and enjoy his victory. Oliver went to the cannabis dispensary in town to get some CBD candies, then spent time touring the amazing city. He saw so many sights and even went to relax at the beach, pondering on how life had changed over the years.
