so far, so interesting
I'm two days into my 6 days of automotive retail sales training, and I'm rather enjoying it. The class is extremely small - there's 3 of us, plus the trainer, and one other employee that's sitting in on the training - and simply packed with interesting information. The trainer is a very experienced guy, and has lots of stories to tell as well. All in all, it makes the day go by at a nice pace.
One of my classmates has an interesting background. I figured going in that I would be the only one making a major career change. Not so - one of the other guys there was, until recently, director of minor league operations for the Toronto Blue Jays. I kid you not! Apparently a management shake-up, and being asked to move to Florida made him consider a new career, and so here he is learning along with me. (He's going to be good at auto sales - very personable.)
No real other news to share, other than it's keeping me interested, and it's definitely going to be a quick learning process. I don't see how I can come out of this being the same person as when I went in. (That's a good thing, in case you weren't sure.) I'm stepping outside of some comfort zones, and I'm going to keep doing so. If I don't, I'd fail. Simple as that.
I'll keep you posted.
