Off the top of my head, the first person that comes to mind is my co-worker Lisa. I know her because of a part-time job. I had the job during last summer vacation, and my job responsibility was mainly selling portable power banks. Lisa was our team leader and I really liked working with her.

Anyway, the first day on the job was difficult. I still remember our boss asked us to reach the sales target on time. After I worked for a whole morning, I felt like I wasn’t qualified enough.

There were barely any customers in the store. So I was worried about failing to meet the target.Lisa saw the situation. She came up to me and encouraged me to not give up. She suggested that I go out and find deals instead of waiting in the shop. She even kindly taught me some sales tricks when I attended to my first customer.

Thanks to Lisa, I achieved the goal that day. At the end of the day, Lisa talked with me. She told me that being a salesperson is hard. But she encouraged me to keep trying, no matter how hard it seemed. She saw that I was dedicatedand passionate about sales. She wanted to help me as much as possible. I appreciated Lisa for helping me improve quickly at sales. Honestly, I couldn’t have survived my first day without her.
