What was your background and motivated you to start or continue a career in sales from whatever else you were doing?

"Transitioning careers during the uncertainty of COVID-19 was daunting. With a diverse background in service, education, and aviation, and recently married, I found myself jobless like many others. Determined to provide for my family, I applied to numerous companies with little success until I discovered LaunchSource. Their support and training were pivotal, allowing me to secure my first SDR role. This foundational experience helped me climb to a CSM position at Tipalti, where I continue to grow professionally."

What’s your best advice for interviewing for the SDR Role given the competitive landscape and the current demand for higher quality talent?

"My key advice for SDR role interviews is to seek help actively. Leverage resources like LaunchSource, consult friends, and find mentors already in sales. Revise your resume, practice through mock interviews, and don't hesitate to ask for advice or references. Embrace a mindset of persistence, positivity, and resilience, just as you would in sales prospecting."

What LaunchSource Company I’m starting my career and what I’m most excited about in 2024?

"Thanks to LaunchSource, I began my SDR journey at Sperlonga Data, which set the stage for my current role at Tipalti. Now as a CSM, I’ve just celebrated one year in this role and am thrilled to continue my professional development. In 2024, I look forward to advancing my skills and giving back to the community that supported my career transition."
