Conclusion

b. I performed well because I was confident, focused and humble to my customer. Furthermore, I prepared my self before hand. c. 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.
