Giving back has always been a part of my core; my therapist once told me that I’m co-dependent because my happiness comes from making other people happy. Why is that a bad thing? I left a lucrative real estate job in my mid-twenties to work at a non-profit supporting cystic fibrosis.

Last month, I jumped out of my car to grab a turtle crossing a busy road and moved it to the other side. This is who I am. Giving back is what makes me happy. And trust me, what I’ve put out has come back threefold! Modern sales is missing something. Every salesperson needs to embrace the “give to get.”
