The Duties of a Sales Representative

The business industry is home to many different jobs that people can do. Whether you go into management, sales, or finance, you are always going to find a job that will require you to be on top of your game, hard-working, and dedicated to the company. One such job is a sales representative.

Gary VorhiesEssentially, sales representatives are employees who sell goods and services to people. They can work in different companies, but they all have some of the same tasks across the board. Manufacturers and wholesale companies rely heavily on their sales representatives to get their merchandise in the hands of other companies that need them. This could be anything from clothing to supplies for a hospital.

There are a few traits that are important to have if you want to be a sales representative. People need to be outgoing and social, and they should love to travel. To be in sales, you have to know how to sell things. Being outgoing can help this because you will know just how to engage the customer and bring them in to buy. If you love to travel, then sales would be perfect because people in sales are often asked to travel all over the state, or even the country, going to different businesses to sell to.

Gary Vorhies knows all about being a sales representative. He works for a Canadian drilling company and is working his way up the professional ladder into middle management. If he does not make it, he perfectly enjoys his job in sales, and makes sure he gives it everything he has, every day.


Labrador Retrievers are more than Just Pets

Many families who are looking to get a new dog have a hard time picking out which breed they should choose to have. This can be quite a situation because there are so many great breeds out there for families. One breed that can be more than just a family pet is the Labrador Retriever. These dogs are common to the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, and Canada.

Gary VorhiesThese amazing dogs are more than just a family friend. They were bred to be hunting dogs that would retrieve the ducks and geese that were shot. They are now most popularly bred as service dogs; this is because they are intelligent and can learn how to handle many different situations. This breed of dog, in particular, is great to have for people who need aid for many different medical ailments. Blind people generally rely on them as seeing-eye dogs, but people with autism can use them as therapy dogs. Police forces also use them for screening and detection work.

Labradors are great swimmers. They can tread water easily, and this is part of what makes them great guide dogs. They also can handle the colder temperature water for much longer than other breeds. Perhaps this is why they were used for duck hunting for many centuries.

Gary Vorhies, a sales representative for a Canadian drilling company, loves Labrador Retrievers. He has two himself, and they all enjoy the fresh air on his small farm in Montana. They are just as much a part of his family as blood relatives would be.

Love Open Spaces? Travel to the North West United States

There are few places across the United States that are as wide open as the Northwestern territory. The skies are big, blue, and endless and the ground beneath your feet is sprawling and fertile. The region is made up of the states Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. Some of these states get passed over for those that offer more attractions, but if you want to experience the wide open spaces of the United States, these states will fulfill your desires.

Gary VorhiesWhile Oregon and Washington are coastal states, the others included in the Northwest are not. These states also have more cities with the highest populations compared to the other states. This is a huge difference when comparing the states of Montana and Wyoming, which are, in large part, made up of farmland.

Portland and Seattle may have the most number of high-rise buildings, as well as a considerable amount of opportunities, but the other states can offer an experience just as fulfilling, and in a completely different way. With fresh air, rolling hills and plenty of livestock, visiting one of these states is going to an experience to remember.

Gary Vorhies was born in Florida but moved to Wyoming as a child. He grew up in the state and always dreamed of living on a farm in Montana. He finally made that happen, and now he and his two dogs enjoy all the outdoor space they have on their land. He works from Montana as well, so he gets to experience its beauty day in and day out.
