Roll Playing

I have been at my new job for a week now.  The training lasts 5 weeks, two weeks in class and three weeks in a training pod.  I have never really worked this kind of sales before. I am not going to lie.  I am pretty nervous, and to do good at this job, you really have to be confident.  So I have been taking every opportunity I can to practice the process.  No better time to practice it than on a run.

This morning while we were running, Amy was pretending to be callers to and requesting a room.  I had her pretend easy calls, just to practice the wording, and then I had her be someone who wasn't really interested in booking at that time.  It was a lot of fun, and it made the miles go by so quick.  I was able to do more to be ready and successful at my new job, and I was having a great run.  I am for sure going to do more of that while we run.  I have to be good at this job or my family doesn't eat.  I don't get the 3-6 month learning curve most have before they make the money.  I have to be good at it now.  So I need to go above and beyond.

I have a 10 mile run planned in the morning.  I am excited to rock it.  I have my half marathon coming up in two weeks.  I am really excited about this whole training process for my full marathon!

Good luck on your run tomorrow!! I don't understand the 3-6 month learning curve either I want to be great now but sometimes that is not always possible...I always go above and beyond but we need to allow slack sometimes!!! You will rock your new job!!!!

The marathon is a big deal. You earn that medal at the finish line. Keep up the good work and good luck with the job.
