I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2005 and moved to Columbia, SC to work with Enterprise Rent-A-Car. There I Iearned to sell aggressively and provide customer service at a high level. Within two years I was promoted up the chain to Branch Manager and held that position for five months working 60 hour weeks. Currently I am working at Carolina First Bank in Columbia, SC. I am responsible for driving inside sales and promoting a sales culture within my branch to ensure that we reach our goals. I entered the financial industry to learn about how money works and I how can make money work for me.
My ultimate dream is to be an entrepreneur and own my own company. I spend all of my free time reading as much as I can on Entrepreneur.com, Inc.com, and StartupNation.com to learn as much as I can about marketing, public relations, branding and identity, sales tactics, hiring, growth strategies, and any article I can get my hands on that will get me closer to my ultimate goal.
That was a great article and extremely informative. Doesn`t do much for these online designers (haha) I don`t have a huge budget so I don`t think I have many options. I will do some more research and make a decision b/c I am ready to move forward. Thanks for everyone`s feedback.
