The skills and processes that I didn't do well are that the time for closing the sale especially when I was selling the mobile contract to the college representative I was about to let her go without making a sale but quickly I picked up my confidence and was capable to sell the contract to the representative. d.

This I will do because they were the areas that I needed to polish on to make it much better. ?? ?? ?? ?? abdinasir ismail 20087632 btec first diploma 1 ...read more.
