Talent Alert in NYC and Tri-State Area for Non-Traditional Sales Person

I have a new client company in New York City - a fascinating niche beverage company. They are growing and now need someone on the ground as their sales person for NYC and the larger Tri-State area. I love the way the owner of this company thinks about finding the right person. They do not want the traditional sales person, but rather a creative, out-of-the-box thinker and human dynamo who will not easily take "No" for an answer in selling to upscale restaurants, hotels and similar high end establishments. In San Francisco, this company's successful sales person is a former folk singer. She is outperforming a colleague with many years of formal sales training!

So, here are some of the things we are looking for. If they fit you or someone you know, contact me at: This is a great opportunity for the right woman or man who loves to work hard and have fun doing it.

Desirable Traits for Tri-State Sales Person for Niche Beverage Company

  • A high energy individual who works well in a start-up environment
  • A person with a strong work ethic who is self-motivated and self-directed
  • A person who is by nature happy and smiling – to be the “face” of the company in NYC and environs
  • Someone who is resilient and can handle hearing “No,” and will come back to try again and again
  • A person who is detail oriented
  • A creative person with a great sense of adventure
  • A person who has not “learned” that it can’t be done, so goes out and does it his/her own way.
  • A person with a consistent positive mental attitude
  • A person who is excited about joining a young pioneering and growing company

Is this you? Do you know someone like this?

Let’s talk!
