Business Development Manager in Oklahoma City:
"Strategy Is Everything."
Follow the sales process and do a thorough discovery. So often new reps get trapped in bad business that detracts from the bottom line because they are so anxious to make a sale. Make a top 25 list of target companies and cold call around them as a daily strategy.

"Try To Create Your Own Business As Early As Possible."
Business is unpredictable so it's better to take the challenge at an early age, don't be afraid to fail, failure is the best path to success. If you like to stay in your comfort zone then it will turn your career into hell when you are older ( close to 50 )
