Working in sales can be tough. I have quotas and deadlines that need to be met in order to prove that I am an asset to the company that they can’t afford to lose. There are times during the year when it is hard to meet these demands but as Summer comes to an end business certainly picks up. The reason for the uptick in sales is the fact that we live in a region where Winters last forever and I sell HVAC systems. Once Summer starts to wind down I can book two and three sales calls a day and many of those lead to a sale of a new system or upgrade. You may be thinking that I only care about the commision check that I get from these sales, but, I am also rewarded with the feeling that I have truly changed someone’s life for the better. Knowing that the family that bought one of our systems will be safe and warm for years to come is a great feeling. Our company offers great incentives for them as well. When purchasing a new furnace you can choose from a lower interest rate or a two year maintenance agreement. This allows families to have the same type of system that some can afford to pay cash for. They don’t have to settle for the bottom of the line when these programs are available. Knowing that I can provide a quality product for a reasonable price makes my job so much easier. I don’t even mind having deadlines and quotas to fill when I can feel so good about what I am doing.
