Working in a sales office can be really hectic.
My great friend and I are consistently trying to entice current clients as well as much of the time is spent in meetings with them. Getting ready for those meetings takes up the rest of my toil afternoons. Before I can even set the appointment I have to do a bit of homework about the prospective client. I need to know where they need our help the most as well as that takes online research, arena research, as well as even getting to know a bit about the person I will be meeting with. All of this prepares me for success as well as helps me land the account. It also allows me to steer clear of someone who apparently does not need our products. All of this preparation is done at the office as well as there is one major problem with that. Our office is always cold. The boss says that she is always tepid so she cranks the air conditioning down to where it is uncomfortable for the rest of us. In fact, typing on a keyboard, whether researching or developing a proposal is downright painful. My fingers feel like they are going to freeze as well as fall off. I actually bought a pair of those fingerless gloves to help keep my hands hot while at work. It may seem unusual that I wear them in the middle of summer time however it does help a bit with circulation. On the afternoons that I am stuck in the office trying to toil I always make sure to eat dinner outside so I can thaw out a bit. I wish our boss would realize that my pal and I would be far more productive if she would adjust the temperature to make us comfortable.
