Why? One question. So many answers.

In my previous post I gave you a birds-eye view of where I’ve been. If you missed it. You can catch it at intro to peaceofmindguy.  The purpose of this post is to give my background on the why certain decisions were made.  I’ll start first with a broad approach of why sales and eventually make my way to why Spectrum.

For me, the decision to base my livelihood off of sales revolved around the main criteria of; people, freedom, and money.  I’m a extrovert, meaning, I recharge or find my energy in other people.  This was definitely a factor that played a role in my decision making process.  Being around people is almost as exciting as making my own way.  I’ve been blessed and cursed with a right brain mentality.  All this means is that my mind needs a bigger playground than others.  Lastly, the money is good.  I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit that I like the paycheck.  But I am not, so “I like the pay check.”

The decision behind getting into restoration sales as opposed to car sales, office supply sales, etc. was easy.  This field is more about a long standing relationship than others with a product.  I didn’t want the thrill of a quick car sale, I wanted a job that was designed to weed out those, not in it for the long haul.  It just fit my personality better.  Not mention I enjoy the variety in stopping in on different kinds of clients with different needs.  It keeps me on my toes and keeps the day fresh.

So there’s the why sales and why restoration sales.  The why Spectrum is the most important part.  The restoration industry has many franchises (Service master, ServPro, etc.) that I could have joined up with.  But the pioneer in me said, their path was already worn.  I want to be a part of building a culture that last beyond my years.  Spectrum has the right components that make sense to me.  Belief is the key to anything being successful or not.  I believe that we have phenomenal people at Spectrum that deeply care about others and are constantly striving for ways to improve the client experience.  It definitely helps that the same support is reciprocated back to me.  This unique positive culture we’ve created makes Spectrum a cut above any other company I would ever consider working for.
