I was in sales for 30 years in two different industries. I moved from Philadelphia PA to Charlotte NC in 1988 to open an office for a small insurance company. I was very successful at producing business throughout North and South Carolina. I won sales trips, made six figures for many years and received stock options and bonuses...
I was SUCCESSFUL by most standards.
Sales is a career in which MANY ADHDer's wake up and find ourselves. We graduate from college and wonder what the heck we are going to do (especially if we have undiagnosed ADHD). We are typically very intelligent and we have good communication skills (often very funny in a quirky way). People really like us even if they find us a bit crazy. We LOVE to be ON THE MOVE and out of a boring office. The pressure of sales STIMULATES OUR BRAINS- it is competitive like sports for many of us. But for a salesperson with ADHD, my list from above comes into play in some fashion eventually.
I am a seasoned ADHD coach who has ADHD and has two out of three children with ADHD (one male and one female).
You can be a happy Salesperson with ADHD! Let me help you to do so.
