New Job!

I’m now working in the mission district of San Francisco at eMochila. I’m a member of the sales team there. We build websites for professionals, and our focus is on CPAs and Lawyers. There are 3 partners that run the firm and they all seem quite impresive at their particular area of expertise and the office has a great team dynamic. I feel like I’m doing pretty good for being quite new at sales. With some concious effort on my part, I’m looking forward to perfecting my presentation and closing… during that time I’ll get some small businesses some great websites.

Emochila really has a pretty cool product and I think with the mentality I’ve witnessed in office, we are only going to get better. Keep a lookout for us.
