My start in sales was as far from glamorous as it gets. I was banging on doors, selling 60-second radio ads

Years later, I'm still working in ad sales - instead focused on the online space as the senior vice president of ad sales at AOL.

But it's the skills I learned selling door-to-door that got me to where I am today.

Along the way, I've learned a few lessons, and decided to share them in the presentation below. I'd also love to hear how others got started in sales, and where they see themselves headed.
