When I worked at Cape Cod Kayak back in 2001 I spent a lot of time in the shop talking with people about the different boats. My boss Kim encouraged me to become a rep. At the time I was uncomfortable talking to people that I didn’t know and would never have dreamed of going into kayak shops to talk to kayak shop owners about products. I thought about so many factors and psyched myself right out of even trying. I’d have to get a truck and buy many truck accessories including a ladder rack to use to transport the boats or other gear.
Now in a twist of irony my job is and has been for the past year to go and talk to potential customers about software. I travel all over the country and give presentations. I guess if I had taken a chance on that sort of career long ago I probably would have done okay with going out and meeting new people and telling them about products. Live and Learn.
