We asked Melissa Platt, Branch Leader from our Newport office, to answer some questions and share her top tips over her past 10 years of sales experience!

Why is sales the best career for you?

I thrive on a target driven environment. And thoroughly enjoy the team spirit when everyone is aiming for the same goal. I have a very competitive nature, so I find sales is the perfect career for me!

What would you tell yourself 10 years ago?

Don’t overthink and worry about things. 

What is your main learning from your years in sales?

If you work hard enough things will happen for you. You can’t expect business to come after you. You have to remain hungry, gain respect and do what you say you’re going to do.

Are there any other golden nuggets you’d like to share?

It’s not rocket science, people buy from people!​​​​​
