It was a hot afternoon back then when I was walking in the streets of Davao City – having a long day searching and visiting up clients for my long awaited first ever sales(for more than 8 months – such a long time, right?) I was just so desperate enough that while walking, I was saying silent prayers. Those dramatic event just simply put a little amount of tears in my eyes though.
Then, my phone rang! It was a call from Sir Rex Altamira! He’s a contractor that has an office in Ilo-ilo City. By then, my career has stepped up a bit and made me experience a numerous of first time…
First time to close a deal
It was just so fast. I mean, that afternoon when he called me, he asked for the prices, the freight if the unit will be delivered to his area and a lot of stuffs. I was like answering of it with a great smile on my face! 3 days after our talk, he called me once again. He was already in the bank and was about to send the down payment of the unit. Wow! Then my boss and some staffs in the office began to congratulate me, it was indeed so great! The feeling of closing a deal. By the way, Sir Altamira have ordered a 14 ton road roller from me.
First time to ride an Airplane
You might laugh at me but its true. I guess, the price of closing a deal is not all about the money though. I never though that closing a deal would make one of my dreams come true! Take note, I have ridden the plane ALL ALONE. Yep! You read it right. It was just me who rode the plane going to Sir Altamira’s place. Amazing!
First time to met Sir Altamira
I am not joking. We have been doing the transactions all over the phone and exchanging email messages. I was so favored in this transaction. It is never easy to close any transaction/s that concerns millions of money over the phone. Praise God for His answer to my prayer. Do you want to experience it as well? P R A Y…
First time to receive bigger Incentives
Well, as part of growing up, all I have been receiving was my allowance, gifts and some “balato” of those who have much. My time did came when I have received a bit bigger out from the transaction. Its all worth it though – from the investment of time, money and prayers.
They say that the hardest part of being a salesman is the first sale. Well, I have made it! I know that there are more “closed” deals that I will be having in the near future. Will surely do my best for it – with God’s guidance above all.
