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 started the same job three months after me.

I still remember Lisa’s first day at work. Our boss set a target sales number that morning,which was normal for us. But after we worked for a whole morning, I noticed Lisa was struggling.She had barely sold anything to customers in the store. I could tell she was really worried about meeting the target. So, I went up to her and suggested that she go out and find deals. It was better than just waiting in the shop for customers. I also taught her some sales tricks. For example, she could tell the customers the price of a product right away instead of asking if they were interested.

That way, the customers are more likely to buy it.Lisa was very dedicated and passionate. She took my advice and sold several power banks in the afternoon. It’s not a lot of sales, but it was still a successful day for a new worker. She was so happy about it and even bought me dinner. I was just proud that I could help her out. It was a good moment for both of us
