We had the good fortune of connecting with Shalini Varghese and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Shalini, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factor behind my success is my drive. I have a “can do” attitude even if I’ve never done a particular thing before. It’s not magic, it’s just will.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
– I’m a technical sales representative and I’ve been in my field for almost fifteen years. – I took a little leap of faith to get into this role and industry as I wasn’t interested in and did not think I was cut out for it, at first.
– It turned out I was kind of a natural at it, but as I got deeper into my career, selling higher end equipment and working for larger companies, more challenges came up and they continue to.
– I deal with challenges by facing them head on and by strategizing before reacting. It’s more of a proactive approach and it has served me well over the years.
– From my professional experience, I would encourage others to try new and different things in their career. Even if you don’t think something is a right fit, it may be worth exploring until you know for sure.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
