What's the best piece of advice you've ever received?

Working in sales is like a rollercoaster. You'll experience ups and downs throughout your career. A former GM told me that sales is like baseball. A good salesperson will always find a way to hit .300. That taught me not to worry about the highs and lows and focus on what you can control today. If you put in the work, then it will work out in the end.

Favorite Titans Player (past or present or both)?

What is your favorite thing about being a Titans Employee?

I'll go with two here. First would be the staff. Working from home during this pandemic has highlighted just how much I enjoy the culture in the office and the people I work with. Second would be game day. It never gets old. I get the chills each Sunday I step into the stadium.
