Haha, they’re all “fun days.” Honestly. I absolutely love what I do.
By trade I’m a COP. Law Enforcement was my first job out of college and I did it for about 4 years. Then I got into business. I had a 5 year career with Enterprise Rent a Car where I worked my way through all the training and eventually made manager, where they gave me my own store. After a time, I made my way into the RV Industry. I started out in retail sales, then became a product trainer, then a sales trainer of new hires, and in the end was promoted out of a floor of 180 to sales manager & later GM. They gave me a division & a team of 39 and at that juncture, I began wearing all sorts of hats… sales training, team building, product training, inventory management, marketing, customer service, etc.. A couple of years later, I took a management job on the manufacturing side of the RV industry where I was over a brand of RV’s for the 20 states on the eastern side of the country. I did that until March of 2016 when my position was eliminated in the merger of Redwood RV under Keystone RV. This merger was a blessing really because it gave me a chance to get out without damaging any relationships. It was then that I made the decision to pursue the advancing of the airgun industry full time.
