Corn Products-Sales-Had meetings with all salesman so they would be comfortable about telling their wives they were traveling overnight with a woman salesperson!
Corn Product-Sales in Midwest-Boss told me to find something to do since the man I was going to take over for did not want to travel with a women! I went and got my real estate license!
Seabrook Blanching Corp Sales-The owner asked me if it was okay to meet him at the Marriot. He told me he had never met with any other women than his wife at a hotel!
After that, they flew us down to Atlanta to let us know our jobs were all gone I started to interview for my next challenge! I spoke with several company owners regarding representing their company. The owner of a flavor company asked me how I knew I could sell flavors? I said I don’t but if I don’t try I will never know! This is how I started my company! This was back in 1990! Fortunately, I have been able to work with many of the same customers for almost three decades! I am lucky to be able to work in the same industry for my whole career! A lot of the customers I do business with are personal friends who I enjoy working with.
