Key Quotes:

  • “I realized I would never be as satisfied in any career as I would be working in the family business.”
  • “It’s a novel thing to have a mother-daughter sales team. There’s a unique level of trust. I trust her to lead a conversation with a customer and vice versa.”
  • “When you’re growing up, you’re used to ‘table talk’… When you become a new employee, you’re exposed to some of the insider knowledge. I’ve tried to focus in on my current role and sequester myself. I see a bigger picture, but right now I want to be a good salesperson and focus on that.”
