Shawn Oliver SDR for Hire - Science-Based Sales® Professional at preHIRED looking to join a purpose-driven SaaS team.

I thrive at grasping effective processes for efficient work-flow until that becomes a working part of the mind. This frees me up to focus on individuals and groups at a human level. Whether I am presenting a new housewares line item to a large retail customer base, guiding my guests into wine and course pairings, or setting up purchase orders for a complete build of materials, the solution is always about what’s in the best interest of whom I serve. I enjoy finding the perfect solution for people and care about how that solution comes to be.

What I care about is what you want in your future and what I can do to help with that. I have great enthusiasm for new technologies and a strong desire to start a sales career. I have been equipped with the necessary tools, skills, and traits needed to be a top-performing SDR. I’ve learned how to better connect with the individual to present thoughtfully and carefully researched solutions. I foster trust in the relationship by allowing space for clarity and transparency. My tendency toward organization and consistency allows me to transmit what I learn. My desire to contribute and help others allows me to operate with heart and by example. I intend to lead a top-performing sales team within two years.

When I'm not immersed in growth through tech sales, I spend a great deal of time studying tradition and wisdom toward spiritual development. I also like to support local shows, meditate on the beach, and occasionally make art that nobody sees.

“Treat people as if they were what they ought to be, and you help them to become what they are capable of being.” JOHANN WOLFGANG VON GOETHE
