SEPTEMBER 2018

CONFIDENCE INWHAT I DO

My history with Mometrix goes back before my first day working here. It actually starts with my wife, who started working with Mometrix in 2005 as a CPA (I didn’t start until 2009).

Gustav hit my company really hard, and, at the end of it all, I was going to have to take a pretty sizable pay cut to stay on board. Needless to say, I wasn’t thrilled about that. But I was also starting to reconsider the job itself. Before the hurricane, I was already thinking about pursuing a new job, and with the prospect of a pay cut, I knew it was time to move on.

Shortly after my wife started working for Mometrix, I was giving serious thought to going back to school to get my

master’s degree. I earned my undergrad degree in 1999 and had thought about getting my master’s degree then. I

As someone with a background in sales, I absolutely have to believe in what I’m selling. When you have full confidence in a product, you have full confidence when you sell that product. I joined the team, and we started taking the next steps to something greater.

wife, Mometrix learned that I was thinking about returning to school and generously

offered to send me a study guide and flashcards to help me prepare. I said, “Sure, send them over.”

I was surprised at how straightforward the Mometrix material was. It cut right through the fluff. I took the GRE and scored 200 points higher than when I took the exam right after college. I was really impressed with Mometrix, and I was more than ready to get back to
