Hello, I am new here but have been lurking for a couple years. Company I was doing outbound cold calling and lead gen for tanked and left me unemployed as of last week. Looking to pick up some new skills to bring in a little extra cash for my 3 (soon to be 4) kids in lieu of another position. Excelled at my last job, engaged cold prospects for big companies such as Excentus/Shell Fuel Rewards program signing up merchants, a few IT jobs and also for the payment processing giant Sage, calling senior execs at mid level banks. Due to that job experience, I wanted to take it to the next level and try my hands at hard sales and to hone my skills. Would really love to maybe make a mentor to toss ideas around with. As far as IM, I have no experience whatsoever but hoping my eagerness, work ethic and ability to comprehend will get me somewhere. Would love to have some engaging and informative 1 on 1s with some intelligent people. Best way to reach me would be to IM me on Skype at nhickman1991 or even a PM. I look forward to being a member of this community and thanks for having me!
