Your career path is in sales.  Working with new people.  Improving existing relationships.  Solving problems.  Resolving situations.  Building lasting relationships.  What matters most to you is not what you do for people, but how you do it.

You’re a resilient competitor.  Wins matter and losses hurt.  In either case, you move forward.  On to the next challenge.  You always want the next challenge.

Your team is your village.  Colleagues, partners, champions, supporters.  You are self-motivated.  You can be the individual contributor.  But your greatest accomplishments happened because you were inspired, and were also, inspired by others.
