Job Details


Our ideal candidates: People with Passion, People with Heart.

If you are the next member of our team, you are a purpose driven seasoned B2B sales hunter and leader with a winning track record of success and an entrepreneurial spirit. But, you want far more than just success – you crave significance and the ability to sell a service that aligns with your core values and makes a profound difference in people’s lives. You prefer and are most confident when selling directly to top decision makers (owners, partners and executives). You are enthusiastic, ambitious, engaging, intelligent and results oriented, an A-player with high integrity and impeccable ethics. You believe in yourself, your ability to contribute and what you stand for. You grasp concepts quickly and communicate them to others effectively. You set big goals and are driven and laser focused to achieve them every day. You truly love sales, prospecting, meeting new people and are very responsive. You know that nothing else happens until a sale is made. Living inside a cube is not your cup of tea. You are tenacious about follow-up, energized by people’s stories and forge meaningful relationships far deeper than just business. You care about people enough to go there personally with your clients and are not intimidated by emotion because you know business is never ‘just business’. You connect dots and see opportunities others miss. You thrive in a world of ideas and concepts and you can sell the intangible and inspire people to believe in a bigger vision for their futures. You are assertive, creative and have high emotional intelligence. Exceptional relationship and communication skills allow you to influence people to quickly move past their fears and take immediate action if the service you sell will truly benefit them because we only get one shot at life and there is no better time than right now to improve your future and the future of all those you influence.
