    Great story, Dave — it restores some of my faith in the entrepreneurial spirit in young, smart salespeople. I’ve trained many newly hired salespeople, just graduated from college, and have been disheartened to hear them talk about sales as just a temporary stepping stone in their career. Your story gives me hope that there are some young salespeople who really understand that sales isn’t just about closing deals and making numbers, it’s also about service — not only to your customers, but to your fellow man. I know that sounds a bit corny, but if more young salespeople understood that, then I think they would find their jobs to be far more rewarding — both monetarily and emotionally.
    Thanks again!
