Luckily, Whova is growing fast and is really loved by customers, which makes my job easier. It makes me proud of what I’m doing here, and my confidence indirectly helps increase customers’ trust in our company. This also helps close more sales deals, of course.
My success was also boosted by the great mentors and leaders here. There’s a close bond with the whole team, no matter which department we’re from. Everyone really encourages one another, and we’re all constantly sharing new tips to ensure everybody succeeds. We also take the time to recognize and appreciate the achievements of our teammates, which keeps building that close bond.
On top of that, I feel self-discipline plays a huge role in my success. With such a fast-paced environment, as expected for a start-up, the ability to adapt to constant changes is important. Being coachable and open-minded to new ideas really allowed me to improve my processes.
