How did I ever End Up in Sales?

Hello Gorgeous Readers!

 

My apologies for being under the radar for quite some time. I’ve quite busy for the first 15 days of the month. Come to think of it, I’m busy still. But I finally had the time to write today since my schedule is 3pm to 11pm.

By the way, I’m working under sales now. My gosh, the sound of the word ‘sales’ echo in my head.

7 years ago, I had a big argument with my parents. I was a freshman in college taking up accountancy. The idea of sales did not appeal to me one bit. I hated math. I hated counting a string of numbers on an on, everyday.

I was very stubborn then. I knew what I wanted. I wanted out of that program. But I had no valid reason to give up on accountancy… unless, I fail. On the day of the final exam for two major accounting subjects, I submitted the test papers blank. The only thing I wrote on it was my name. Then, I trashed my calculator.

I felt rebelliously proud then; but I feel bad thinking about it now.

My parents were really disappointed at me for failing two major subjects. They finally let me shift course to bachelor of arts in English.

Honestly, I don’t regret choosing AB English over BS Accountancy. I guess it was just my means of getting what I wanted that… well… kind of makes me feel disappointed of myself.

Sales

Well, as crazy as it sounds, 7 years later, I’m working under sales. I don’t know where life will lead me next; but like my co-worker used to say… “we just have to excel”

  1. Hi hun , have missed you and wondered where you were. Hope you've been well. I can relate to how you much you hate numbers and accounting, same here. I also chose not to study in the Acc field because my passion is writing. I think it was the best thing to do, because you have studied what you love and what you're passionate about.
    Good luck with sales!
