Hello, to whomever is reading this! Thank you for taking the time to consider me for the position. I can sum this up by saying that I will go above and beyond for you. Time is a precious thing and I will never waste yours or mine. I'm impeccable with my word, excellent in sales, marketing, and arts in any form, and can acclimate to almost anything. People seem to like me wherever I find myself, and usually, the feelings are mutual. I've found I'm both good on my own or working with other's, and I have no problem taking directions as I always feel there is more to learn. I'm fiercely competitive, but only in a productive way. Do us both a favor and give me a shot! Thanks so much, again, for your time!
